power banksIt’s a handy accessory that allows you to charge your phone while you’re away from home or on the go. Many modern phones have large batteries and fast charging, which reduces the need for a powerbank.
We were curious to see how many of our readers have a power bank. We posted a survey earlier in this week. Here’s the result.
Do you have a power bank for your phone?
This was a very well-received poll, with over 4,100 votes cast at the point of writing. The most popular choice was the power bank as 48.65% of respondents had one. Based on feedback, some respondents purchased power banks for travel abroad and/or emergency situations.
30.15% of the readers surveyed claimed they already had more than one power bank. At least one reader stated that they have a power bank in their car. Two others said they have multiple power banks that can be used for other gadgets, such as smartwatches or laptops.
Finally, 21.19% said they don’t have a power bank. Also, more respondents said they had multiple power bank options.
- Rico_Xander: I have several power banks that I have given away, but I never bought one.
- roguenesIt’s more useful than phones. I have several, especially as my wife has a heated jacket which uses a USB A connection.
- Joe BlackI have one or two of them…or maybe three. However, they are not intended to be used for my smartphone and serve as an additional battery for mine.
- This second: My Moto G Power 2020’s 5000mAh battery can last for 2-3 days on one charge. However, I thought it would be smart to invest in a power bank in the event of an emergency. My area is often hit hard by hurricane season. I have seen my neighborhood go without power for several days after an F1 tornado hits. You can never have enough power.
- SophiaYou can charge your phone anywhere, even on an airplane. The new car also has a wireless charger built in. This is in addition to my phone’s all-day power and there’s no reason for me to squander any more juice.
- MattI bring one when I’m away for a few nights, especially when hiking, biking, or camping, to charge my lights, ebooks, and phone.
- : I have an addiction to buying powerbanks for sale. I currently have seven of them. They range from a cheap Walmart checkout line (about 5,500 mAh) to an Anker737 (24,000mAh) that can charge other devices with up 140W Power Delivery. It’s a great thing to have backup power for Pokemon Go. It makes camping and overnighting much easier as I can charge my phone, tablet, hearing aids, and smartwatch from just one or two batteries. I don’t have to worry about whether there are outlets or if I have to run a cable through a pass in order to connect something. I also have one that can power a raspberry pi 4. If I want to move it around, I don’t have to plug it into.
- strings: I purchased a Xiaomi Powerbank with built in wireless charger. My wife didn’t get it when I bought it. You use it frequently when it is difficult to leave your phone on the table to charge.
- EeZeEpEeI keep one spare in each car just in case. For example, it is better not to have but not to use an amusement park than to have but not to use. It is something I rarely use though.
- Despair_: I thought I would never need one, but for many reasons I needed one of 20,000 mAh last years. Since then I feel secure when I’m on long journeys.
