Power banks that have lower than 15,000mAh of power capacity aren’t usually thought to have the best charging power. I mean, many do and at the same time, many don’t. This is because the usual case is that there are power banks that fall in the “Intermediate” power capacity range; those are the kind that have two ports that have two very different charging speeds. One port has the faster speed than the other one and the other one has a very slow charging speed.
This kind of charging design is quite common and the same time bad. However, this Infinie power bank is one of those power banks that takes the smart route and is able to give fast overall charging.
The power banks have an initial power capacity of 12,000mAh and since it has two charging ports, with one outputting 2.1A and the other one Outputting 2.4A, the Output power capacity is going to change depending on our you’re using the power bank. Using more charging power is going to result in more power capacity being lost.
With that said, the average conversion rate is going to be 70% and that’s basically the average conversion rate of most power banks. As a result, you’re going to be able to use 8,400mAh towards actually charging devices.
Infinie for Smartphones
8,400mAh of power capacity is actually very useful as you’ll be able to charge smartphones and tablets to their full power. You can charge most smartphones about 2-4 full times and even when it comes to charging high capacity smartphones, they’re going to be able to charge 3 times to their full power.

Infinie for Tablets
Also charging Mini tablets doesn’t pose too much of a challenge since you can charge an iPad Mini 2 or iPad Mini 4 to their full power at least once and still have power capacity left over. The same is true for Galaxy Tab tablets but you can charge most of them twice because they usually have battery capacities of 4,000mAh. Overall, the usable power that you get from this power bank is going to be very useful and last a very long time if you’re mostly charging smartphones and it can still be useful for charging small tablets too.
The charging speeds are one the best parts of this Infinie power bank because it has two charging ports with very good speeds.
One port has a charging speed of 5V/2.1A and the other one has a charging speed of 5V/2.4A. Both ports are able to charge most smartphones at their max charging speeds, but with that said, this power bank does not feature Quick Charge, so Quick Charge compatible smartphones are not going to charge at their max charging speed.
The 2.4A port should always be used first because it gives the faster charging rate, and it’s able to charge tablets like iPads at their max charging speeds.
Even though the individual charging speeds are great, what’s even better is that you can use the max power of each port at the same time because the Max Output power is 4.5A. So you can charge two smartphones or tablets at the same time and both will charge at very good speeds.
Recharging could Use Work
The max recharge rate of the power bank is 5V/2.0A and as long as you’re using 2 Amp USB wall charger or higher to recharge the power bank, then the Infinie power bank will be recharged within 8 hours. Not too bad of a recharge speed but it could be shorter since 8 hours is as long as it usually takes a 20,000mAh power bank to fully recharge.
Size and Weight:
Not too large of a power bank and this is quite nice considering that the power bank has 12,000mAh of power.
It has a length of 4 inches, a width of 3 inches, and a thickness of 1 inch. The weight of the power bank is about 7 ounces. So it’s small and lightweight enough that you can hold it in a single hand while you’re charging your smartphones. Of course when it comes time to charge 2 devices at once, then it needs to be set down.
The functional parts of the power bank are a bit everywhere.
On one side is where there are the two USB ports, and on the long side of the power bank is where you find the Micro-USB Input port to recharge the power bank.
On top is where there’s the power button, and 4 Blue LED power capacity indicators that are very close to each other and it makes it look like it’s just a bar of power; which is pretty cool.
With that said, you must press the power button to begin charging once you’ve connected a device into 1 of the 2 charging ports. Charging does not automatically start, and that can be a frustrating thing if you connect a device and forget to press the power button because your device will not be charging. Also, when you press the power button, the LED capacity indicators turn on for a little while and then turn off to conserve power.
Structure and Material:
The power bank is made of plastic and it has a well-built structure that is able to take constant use. However, it is questionable whether it can withstand drops onto hard flooring because it doesn’t have any shockproof reinforcements.
It has all the necessary safety tech like Surge and Short-Circuit protection to make sure that charging is safe as possible even when you’re using all the power that the power bank has to offer. It also has the RoHS, FCC and CE certifications as further proof that it’s built to last through its charging quality.
This Infinie power bank is highly reliable because of its great conversion and also the charging power that it delivers from its USB ports. So you can charge devices at very fast speeds and have them charge to their full power sooner.
Also, the power bank is portable enough to be taken nearly anywhere because of its small box shape and lightweight. It all accumulates into a power bank that is able to deliver on nearly all cylinders, except for the recharging because it takes a long 8 hours before being able to be reliable again.
The power capacity is able to charge smartphones multiple times over and can even charge some tablets to their full power a few times too. The charging speeds are very good; this is true for the individual charging port speeds and also for the Max Output of 4.5A because you can use the max power of each port at the same time.
Not very large or heavy, which makes it perfect to be taken anywhere. However, you must remember to press the power button to begin charging. Otherwise, the device that you connect to the Infinie power bank will not charge.
It has a perfect build that you can use every day, and still have the power bank in the same condition that you got it in the first place.
What makes this power bank so reliable is how well it does a lot of things and they all come together to make a powerful power bank. With a high power capacity, powerful charging, and a portable design.

We had our doubts with this power bank and whether or not it’ll be able to surpass the mediocrity that most power banks with its power capacity have. We’re glad to say that it does.
Since it has fast charging rates with each port and the Max Output allows you to take full advantage of the charging power that’s available. Using the power bank might not be the best experience as you must press the power button to begin charging, and if you forget to press the power button, then you’re stuck with low powered devices.
