Top 5 Tips To Maintain The Longevity Of Your Power Bank

As the usage of mobile devices increases in Singapore, our power banks have essentially become a backup battery for our gadgets, providing them with extra power whilst on the move. However, like any electronic device, power banks require proper care and maintenance to extend their lifespan. Fortunately, they are easy to maintain. Let us share how you can keep your power bank in tip-top condition, ensuring it lasts for years to come.

Tip #1: Charge your power bank periodically


Charge  Power Bank Periodically


Ideally, you should use and recharge your power bank frequently to maintain the lifespan of its battery. Even if your device has fallen into disuse recently or still contains sufficient power, we recommend charging it periodically. This practice prevents the battery from deep discharging, which can impact its capacity over time.


In particular, lithium-ion and lithium polymer rechargeable batteries, which are common power sources in power banks, do not function well when left in a fully discharged state for an extended time. Besides, regularly keeping your device charged can ensure it is always ready to provide a quick energy boost when you need it.


We recommend using the charger provided with your power bank, as it is specifically designed to deliver the appropriate voltage and current to the device. If that is not possible, ensure the alternative charger you use meets the specifications of your power bank to avoid damaging its battery.


Tip #2: Keep your power bank away from moisture


Like other electronic devices, exposure to water or high humidity levels can damage a power bank’s internal components and reduce its effectiveness. To safeguard your investment, always store your device in a cool, dry environment when not in use.


Additionally, avoid using your power bank in wet conditions, such as charging your mobile gadgets while you are caught in the rain. If it comes into contact with moisture, ensure you dry it thoroughly before attempting to use or charge it.


Tip #3: Avoid using your phone when it is plugged into the power bank

While your mobile device is connected to the power bank, it can be tempting to fiddle with it until it reaches full power. However, this practice generates excess heat, which can damage both your phone’s and the power bank’s battery.


To ensure the longevity of all your gadgets, please refrain from heavy usage after connecting them to your power bank. Checking your text messages is fine, but avoid battery-intensive applications like playing a mobile game or chatting with friends via FaceTime.


Tip #4: Do not use your power bank in high-heat environments


Power banks do not pair well with extreme temperatures, especially heat, as they can accelerate the ageing process of the battery and diminish its overall capacity. So, avoid using or charging your power bank in high-heat environments, like under direct sunlight or near heat-emitting devices. The optimal operating temperature should be between 0°C to 35°C.


Tip #5: Handle your power bank with care


Handle Power Bank with Care


Power banks are sensitive equipment to maintain. However, it is not just about how you utilise and charge your device. It is also the way you handle it. Avoid dropping or knocking the gadget against a hard surface. Likewise, refrain from placing heavy objects on the power bank or sitting on it. These actions can damage the casing or the internal components, like the circuit board or the lithium rechargeable battery. 


The invention of the power bank has undoubtedly made charging our mobile devices on the go that much easier. To continue enjoying this level of convenience, we recommend keeping our helpful tips in mind to maintain the longevity of your power bank, ensuring it remains a reliable power source for your gadgets for the foreseeable future.
