Asus ZenPower 10050mAh review: The compact power bank for travellers
Fast charging support
Single USB output
Takes hours in charging
The Asus ZenPower 10050mAh is one of the most compact power banks available in the current market. Its sleek design and affordable price makes it a great companion for travellers who need mobile charging during their journeys.
The companies which were earlier quite busy in making affordable smartphones and tablets have just started developing power banks to support their existing and new offerings. These power banks are one of the must have devices for users who often travel outside and need a portable source to charge their mobile devices. Taking a note from Xiaomi’s Mi Power Banks, Asus recently developed its own high-capacity power bank called the ZenPower 10050mAh. We started using the Asus ZenPower 10050mAh a couple of days after its official launch in India last month to cover an in-depth review. So here are our words.
What’s in the Box
The Asus ZenPower 10050mAh packs in a simple box that features the power bank’s branding on top, and shows its compatibility with the Zenfone 2. The box includes the ZenPower 10050mAh unit, a USB-to-microUSB cable for charging and a detailed user guide.
Although we got the silver-colored ZenPower 10050mAh, it comes in a variety of attractive color options, including black, gold, blue and hot pink. Customers also have the option to separately purchase a silicone protective sleeve that adds some amount of protection from scratches and damages.
Asus used an aluminium built to design the ZenPower 10050mAh. The built gives a robust feel in hand and makes the power bank strong enough to bear some accidental falls.
Front side of the ZenPower 10050mAh features Asus branding on top of the aluminium alloy casing. The casing has a compact size, close to a credit card, and features textured design that provides a better grip.
On top, the Asus ZenPower 10050mAh has a single USB port for charging other devices and a microUSB port to get power from an external source. Apart from USB ports, there is a power indicator that provides details on the remaining battery power in four different levels and a power button.
The ZenPower is a composed of three high-capacity 18650 batteries that pack in a single 3350mAh battery cell to deliver a total capacity of 10050mAh.
Asus has provided an option for a protective sleeve that enhances the looks of the ZenPower 10050mAh, as well as makes it a sturdy device. The sleeve is washable and is available in a variety of color options.
Overall, design of the Asus ZenPower 10050mAh is compact enough to be a pocketable power bank with 20 x 25 centimetre dimensions with 22mm thickness and 215 grams weight.
