When shopping for battery packs, we are often left with many choices to choose from for example the capacity, features, and pricing. Most of the time, the buyer ends up paying a huge fee for something that is not great. In this scenario, the more you pay doesn’t exactly mean the better the product will be. In this article, I will introduce you to what is in my opinion the best battery pack at an affordable price range. I will also explain why this is my favorite. The product reviewed here has been in use for more than one week; however, the previous model was used for more than a year. This review is going to focus mostly on the newer model while comparing it to the older one.
Without further ado, let’s reveal the star of the show. I am talking about the TeckNet PowerZen G3.
As you can see above, this is a beautifully designed battery pack that fits comfortably in your hands. The slim design allows the user to slide it into his/her pockets without adding too much bulk. It features six indicator lights which tell you approximately how much charge is left. What I loved about this new model in comparison to the last one is that the lights are dimmer which is great because it doesn’t light up my entire room while I sleep. The power button has been rounded off opposed to the square button on the last model.
Another feature that made this battery pack an automatic favorite is the addition of a LED flash. This is very helpful when trying to catch Pokemon at night. Sorry, I had to! The flash is powered straight from the battery pack so that’s a great feature as well.
- Bluetek technology offering up to 3.4A (Read below for explanation)
- 2A input making it possible to recharge up to 50% faster than the last model
- Capacity of 16000mAh (There are other configurations as well)
- Two USB ports both of which support Bluetek technology
- LED flash as mentioned above
One of the things that blew my mind with the TeckNet PowerZen is the addition of Bluetek technology. This does two things for you. One, the device is able to recharge up to 50% faster which in my experience, it recharged in a matter of hours instead of leaving it overnight. Two, the USB ports are able to detect what device you plug into it and provide the optimum amount of output for it. This means your device will charge efficiently and save you time as well. My iPhone 6s is able to recharge in less than 1 hour. Your mileage may vary.
My decision to purchase this device came down to the pricing. I compared a few different brands, but this one was considered a bang for my buck. It offered some amazing features that are non-existent in other brands. I will also mention that my decision was also impacted by the fact that I had already owned the first generation model. Because the first generation battery pack worked so well for me, it pushed me to greatly consider sticking with the same brand. I ended up paying the same price for the newer model so it all worked out in the end. I am very happy I made the purchase. If you are looking for a great battery pack at an affordable price, look no further than the TeckNet PowerZen G3.
