Phone chargers and power banks are the hottest trend in the promotional products market today, and it's no surprise why. In January 2014, the Pew Research Center
reported that a whopping 58 percent of American adults used a smartphone, and 42 percent owned a tablet. People rely on their mobile devices for everything from making phone calls to browsing the web, and when you're in a crunch, there's nothing worse than seeing that low battery warning.
Mobile charging devices ensure that you'll never get caught without a charge. However, they're not all created equal. Consider the following points to find the right promotional phone charger for your brand and your customers.Car adapter or power bank?
Motivators offers both, but they're not the same. Car adapters plug into your vehicle's cigarette lighter socket and charges mobile devices from your car's battery. Power banks, on the other hand, are external batteries that will charge your phone or tablet wherever you go. Simply connect your phone through a USB cable, and the power bank will power up your device in a matter of hours. If you can't decide which your customers would prefer, then check out our chargers gift set, which includes both!Can I charge my tablet?
Yes, Motivators' power banks can be used to power up smartphones and tablets that connect to a USB cable. Some of our charging devices can even charge more than one device at once.What size power bank is best?
It depends on how it's going to be used. If your target audience is constantly on the move, a slimmer, more portable power bank is best. Motivators offers several thin varieties, like our ultra-slim mobile charger and our credit card power bank. They're small enough to fit into a pocket or purse!
Our larger options are better suited for those who need to charge than one device at once. Motivators' zoom energy bar charger, for example, is equipped with two USB outputs, making it easy to power up your phone and tablet at the same time. This feature is especially handy for businesspeople and anyone who needs to be constantly plugged-in.How many hours needed to charge my phone?
This will depend on two things: the mAh rating of your power bank and which phone you use. To find the size of your device's battery, either look on its package or search the Internet about your device. We'll touch on this more below.Do all power banks charge the same?
Every power bank has a different mAh rating. The number represents how much energy a device holds and how long it will run. For instance, our popular power bank emergency battery charger has a 2200 mAh power rating. Conversely, our portable charger with LED light provides more than double the power with a 5200 mAh battery. Click the Details tab on any one of our charging devices to see its mAh rating.
