A few days ago, I was able to lay my hands on a very stylish and high grade power bank made by a company that is relatively new to the world of phone manufacturing. And like their phone which has garnered so much respect amongst tech enthusiasts, the power bank reeks of the same quality.
I’m talking about no other company other than OnePlus, makers of the world famous OnePlus One.
The OnePlus One took the world by storm, offering high end specs at a low cost and generating a lot of controversy by using an invite system for purchase. For those who use or have seen the OnePlus One, imagine that build quality and design being channeled into a power bank.
The OnePlus power bank is an amazing device that does pretty well what it’s meant to do. Boasting a capacity of 10,000mAh and two 2.1A output ports, the power bank can charge any phone, tablet and other portable devices. It’s slim and curvy (just the way I like my woman), has 4 LED indicators to show the amount of charge left on the device and finally, comes with a USB cord and user manual in English and it has NO buttons.
Not having any buttons is one of the unique selling points of the device. Once you plug in your device, it starts to charge, and when it’s full it powers down. But what if you want to know the amount of charge left on the power bank when you’re not charging? It’s simple. The power bank has a built-in motion sensor, so all you have to do is shake the device twice and the power bank turns ON for a few seconds letting you see the charge left on the device.
The unit I have with me is the silk white version and even though I’m not a fan of white devices, I still very much like it. I heard there’s going to be a sandstone black version available in the nearest future but I doubt if there’ll be a bamboo version.
It costs N6500 excluding delivery and I’m very happy with the purchase. If madam is a good girl, I’ll give her this unit and pick up the sandstone black but till then this power bank is another reason for us to be together like 2 peas in a pod.
