Mobile Phone consume a lot of battery nowadays. Your smartphone is used for accessing internet, playing games, GPS navigation etc. No wonder you run out of power very quickly. Portable battery charger are getting popular due to continuous demand of your smartphone/Table/Ipod (mp3 player) for power. With the help of portable battery charger, you can charge your tablet, smartphone, mp3 player on the go and extend your device runtime. I am going to review AsiaPower PowerBank AP-2200A for the same purpose.
AsiaPower PowerBank AP-2200A
It has a battery capacity of 2200mAH. It should be sufficient for an average smartphone. However, for a tablet I would recommend buying a portable charger which has a battery capacity of at least 4000mAH. If you are unsure of your device battery capacity, simply google your device name and battery keyword along with it. Make sure you buy the portable charger which has battery capacity equivalent to your device battery so that it can charge your device completely once it’s fully charged.
The size of AsiaPower PowerBank AP-2200A is 90 x 25 x 25 mm. It’s about a slightly less than an average palm. It is compact and should be convenient to put in your bag without taking much space. It weighs around 75-80 gms. Again, nothing extraordinary in terms of weight. It’s not very light nor heavy for a portable charger. It comes with a USB and a Nokia pin. It comes in two colors : Black or White.
It took about 5 hours to charge completely for the first time. The portable battery charger did not heat up much while charging which is a good sign. You can connect your device for charging with the USB/Nokia pins which comes along with it. It tool around 2 -2.5 hours to charge my smartphone completely which has a battery capacity of 2100mAH.
You should check out its competitors in order to get a best deal. Make sure you don’t buy any cheap Chinese battery charger which comes without warranty. I got a free battery charger with some device which blasted while getting charged and such incidents are quite common for cheap battery chargers. AsiaPower PowerBank AP-2200 comes with a standard one year warranty and the company claims that it can recharge more than 500 times. Hence, it should be able to suffice for more than a year easily. With a price tag of Rs 999, I would say it’s a decent deal.
