For someone who owns a smartphone and is always on the go, having a power bank is becoming more of a necessity. Today, we review the Valore Bookmark Power Bank 2800 mAh.
First impression of this power bank is that it is really slim. This power bank is only 4.7mm thin! And it weighs 71.26g. That’s one slim and light power bank I would not mind bringing around. And it is available in 10 different colors as well.
The charging ports and battery indicator lights are located on one side of the power bank. That is one fully charged up power bank I have there with all 4 green lights lit up. If you wish to know how much juice does your power bank have, just touch the battery indicator and it would light up to indicate the strength that is left in the power bank. Pretty cool feature they have there.
The Valore Bookmark power bank also comes with a pouch for you to store your power bank and of course a charging cable. Just plug in the correct port to either charge your power bank or to charge your phone. The pouch is a useful thing to have for storing my power bank and charging cable together.
Next, I had to find out if this power bank is able to charge my phone fully. As I am using the HTC One which has a battery capacity of 2300 mAh, theoretically this slim power bank with a storage capacity of 2800 mAh should be able to charge my phone up to 100%. The moment my phone was flat, I plucked in the power bank. I also switched my phone to “airplane mode” to reduce any additional power drain and I did not turn on the screen until either my phone was fully charged or the power bank ran flat. At the end of the experiment, it only managed to power my phone up to the 65% mark. So the actual battery capacity is probably around 1500 mAh? That is pretty disappointing.
I would get this power bank if I could live with it only being able to charge my phone up to 65%. The slim and light weight form factor is a huge appeal for me but actual battery capacity is a turn-off.
Plus points: Slim. Light. Nice color and design.
Minus point: Has an actual battery capacity that is closer to 1500 mAh?
