Powerbank vs Powerbank Rapid

Are you looking for a reliable power bank for your mobile device? Are you having trouble deciding what to go with? There's no doubt that a power bank is a handy piece of gear, allowing you to recharge your phone or tablet when you're nowhere near an electricity source.

But when it comes to choosing the right power bank, making a decision can be a little tricky. Should you prioritise price over capacity? How many USB ports do you need? Do you need to think about weight, because you're always on-the-go? Let's take a look at the Powerbank versus the Powerbank Rapid


The standard Powerbank comes with a 6000mAh capacity. This means that it can handle any mobile device, including mobile phones, tablets, PDAs, MP3 players, PSPs and GPS navigators. The Powerbank Rapid, in contrast, comes with double the capacity: 12000mAh, which means it's also made for all common mobile devices. So, what's the difference?

Well, as the name suggests, the Rapid power bank version charges at a much quicker rate than the standard. It's designed to deliver a serious dose of power at super-speed.

LED torches

Both the Powerbank and the Powerbank Rapid are fitted with an LED torch/flashlight. This can come in surprisingly handy. After all, if your phone's run out of power and it's dark, it can be hard to find it. But you don't have to worry about that when you have a power bank on you. 

USB ports

Both options are equipped two USB ports. This allows you to charge two devices at once. Just don't forget to pack the right USB cable for your particular phone or tablet.


Power banks are designed for life on-the-run. Between study, socialising and work, modern lives can be busy. You need gear that's made for carrying. The Powerbank and the Powerbank Rapid are built to be tough and compact, so they don't take up too much space and they last as long as possible.
