What else I Liked about the RAVPower power bank?
It is powerful.
The charger is equipped with New Generation A+ Li-ion battery cells which are capable of 1000 recharge cycles. It has been tested along with similar chargers, and RAVPower can fully charge an iPhone over five times.
It has multi-level protection.
Aside from adjusting the current output into your device, it has a multi-layered safety system which protects your devices. Its short circuit protection feature automatically shuts off the charger if it detects a short circuit or overload.
It also has a temperature protection which prevents the device from overheating even if you used it for a much longer period of time.
It is cheaper than other portable chargers.
It might come as a surprise that despite all the power it delivers, it comes cheaper than its competition. The RAVPower defies the common thinking that cheap is equal to poor quality. However, you should still be careful of counterfeits and buy your device from a trusted site.
You can use it while it is charging.
You can still charge two devices simultaneously even if the charger is plugged into a power outlet. Unlike other portable chargers which either get very hot or can’t be used while recharging itself, this power charger only gets slightly warm. This means that it is very efficient because not a lot of heat is wasted.
It has a power indicator.
The charger has 4 LED lights which indicate how much power is left in your battery. When it is fully charged, all 4 LED lights are on, when only one light is on, it means you only have between 25 – 1 percent of power left in the power bank.
