Power banks starting to become a charging electronic that you definitely need to own and are basically a charging electronic that is becoming as necessary as a wall charger. That’s because you can take them anywhere and these days, if you’re someone that’s always out and about, and using your smartphone and other portable devices, then a power bank is a must.
That’s even truer now than ever, as we have quite a few portable devices that we use each day, such as our smartphone, laptop, tablet and also Bluetooth headsets. The most important to focus on in this case would have to be smartphones as they’re one of the most dynamic tech products that change a lot as there are newer ones released every year.
For the smartphone that we’re talking about here, it would be the LG V40 ThinQ. LG has created some of the best smartphones on the market lately, with the release of the LG V30 and the LG G6 last year really stepping up their game. Also with the release of the LG G7 and LG V35 earlier this year, they just continue to excel with the specs, camera and overall build of their phones.
Unfortunately, even though their smartphones can basically match Samsung phones, they’re not nearly as known due to their lower marketing efforts. That said, it hasn’t stopped them from growing and we think that the LG V40 ThinQ is going to be one of their bigger releases with the attention that it’s getting.
The main reason for the attention? The phone has three cameras!
So with the usage of this many cameras, and using them while you’re on-the-go, it’s going to be using up a lot of power. That’s why we’ve chosen the power banks that you should be using to charge your LG V40 ThinQ, while you’re on the move.
Crave Plus Aluminum 10,000mAh Power Bank with Quick Charge 3.0
The power bank that you get for your LG V40 ThinQ must feature Quick Charge, as the smartphone is compatible with Quick Charge 3.0.
For the first power bank, it’s the best one of the best portable chargers that you can get for a smartphone and that’s because this Crave portable charger has a very slim form factor. So the charger has a length of 6.2 inches, a width of 3.1 inches, and a thickness of 0.4 inches. For a 10,000mAh power capacity that is a great form factor.
So the charger is basically the size of a smartphone, allowing you to place the charger in the same pocket as your smartphone.
Along with that, there are two output ports, with one featuring Quick Charge and the other port is USB-C with a 3A charging rate. To recharge the power bank there are two input ports, but you can only use one at a time
There’s the USB-C port that can be used as an input and the Micro-USB input. Both of the input ports have the same recharge rate of 5V/2.4A, so it doesn’t matter which one you use to recharge the power bank, as long as you’re using a 2.4 Amp wall charger or higher.
