For quite a while now the Xiaomi Powerbanks have held the title of being the best value-for-money powerbank in the India. However now everthing will get changed with the launch of ASUS ZenPower. Launched alongside the ASUS Zenfone 2, the ASUS ZenPower offers superb design, premium quality, loads of safety features, and a very competitive price tag.
ASUS ZenPower portable power banks are available in India via. ecommerce website Flipkart. The ZenPower power bank has a capacity of 10050 mAh and is available in Silver, Gold, Pink, Blue and Black. While the Gold, Silver, Pink and Blue variants are priced at Rs.1499, the Black variant is a special edition that incorporated the Zen Element in its casing design making it a bit expensive by additional Rs.100 and is priced at Rs.1599.
Asus Power Bank comes with aluminium outer casing gives it a premium feel but the design is almost similar to Xiaomi’s Mi Power bank. This casing makes the Power Bank look superb and it gives protection to the Power Bank from external damages. If you want additional protection, then you can buy the ZenPower Bumper which is available online separately.
The power bank is small in size and easy to carry in pocket, it’s roughly the size of a credit card (obviously thicker but at least not as bulky).The dimensions of ZenPower power bank are 90.5 x 59 x 22 mm and it weighs around 215 grams.
ZenPower has a single USB port which can provide output of up to 2.4A and input of up to 2A. It also has a 4 LED power indicator. The switch has an automatic sensor that turns ZenPower on when it detects that a device is plugged in. ZenPower will automatically turn itself off after some time after charging is complete or a device is unplugged.
ZenPower is composed of three high-capacity 18650 batteries. It uses the new high-density single 18650/3350mAh battery cell, which makes it one of the better products on the market in terms of density-to-volume ratio. ZenPower is even better than many 10050mAh mobile chargers made up of four 18650 lithium batteries. But at the same time, ZenPower has same identical capacity and is 25% lighter and more compact than other powerbanks availabe in the market!!!
When it comes to safety, ASUS already added over charge and over discharging protection. ASUS also boasts 11 different safety features, including Short circuit Protection, Reset Protection, Output over Voltage Protection and others. However, one safety feature that caught my attention is the JEITA protection that is built into this power bank. This feature is based on the surrounding temperature, ZenPower smartly adjust the voltage and current to increase the life of ZenPower upto 1.8 times longer.
In addition to those safety features, ZenPower is also certified with 6 international Safety certification including CB, BSMI, CE, UL, EAC and TISI, which makes ZenPower a safe portable power bank for your daily use.
Asus ZenPower also comes with intelligent technology which makes the Power Bank adjust the charging according to the temperature. ASUS ZenPower can easily charge most smartphones at least twice. Based on our test, we were able to easily get our OnePlus One fully charge to 100% for 3x times. That’s definitely impressive and it truly makes this a great investment since it literally extends the lifespan of your phone by more than 300%.
We definitely recommend the ASUS ZenPower which you can get at this time, its small, compact, stylish and easy to hold. With the given price point, ZenPower should supports dual charging. It nice to see company has focused more on its safety part and ensured that you are getting a good device.
