Pros

  • Has a Slim Form Factor that can fit into your pocket
  • Has a 2 Amp Output and Input charging speed
  • Uses an Aluminum Alloy Body

Cons

  • There's no power button to manually begin charging because charging automatically starts but it would have been good to have one just in case

Slim power banks are on the “Mini” segment of power banks because, in order to have a slim and small form factor, a power bank must have a low power capacity. Usually. The reason that I say that is because a portable charger can still have a high power capacity and still have a slim form factor but it wouldn’t make sense as it wouldn’t be able to fit into your pocket. Most of the time these types of power banks have power capacities that are within the 3,000mAh range or lower and are very limited with their power even when it comes to charging smartphones.

That is why this Innogie Air Series 4,600mAh power bank is one of the best slim power banks out on the market. It’s because it has a higher than normal power capacity that slim power banks usually don’t have and it still holds onto its slim form factor and lightweight. The portable charger also has quite a lot of other upgrades too, so let’s see what it’s got.

Power Capacity:

The power capacity of this Innogie Air portable charger starts at 4,600mAh and the conversion of power is going to be quite good with this power bank. The reason that the conversion is really good with this power bank is that it has a single USB port and the charging speed is 2.1A. With that said, the charging speed of the device that you’re charging will also affect the conversion rate because if the power bank is outputting the full 5V/2.1A charging speed then it’s going to have a lower conversion of power.

With that said, with the use of just a single USB port, you’re going to be getting an average conversion rate.

Most of the time you’re going to be receiving an Output power capacity of 3,404mAh that you’re actually able to use and that is a really good power capacity considering that this is a slim power bank; another reason that it’s a great thing is that it’s able to charge most smartphones to full power.

Smartphones such as the iPhone SE or the iPhone 7 are able to charge to full power and still leave the power bank with quite a lot of power capacity because those iPhones have a low capacity. Then if you’re charging smartphones that have high capacities such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 with its 3,000mAh battery or a Google Pixel XL with its 3,450mAh capacity, then those are able to charge to full power once with the Innogie power bank

Overall, the power capacity that this charger has is only able to charge smartphones to full power and charging a tablet isn’t the best idea because the power bank would only charge most tablets about halfway through or maybe even less than that.

Output Charging:

The power bank uses a single USB port and it has a charging speed of 5V/2.1A. A 2.1 Amp charging is enough to charge most smartphones at their max power and it can also charge tablets such as an iPad at its max charging speed too; although iPads have a max charging speed of 2.4 Amps. Overall, the charging speed is quite good and should give you a noticeable boost of power to the device that you’re charging.

This Innogie power bank does not feature Quick Charge though, so if you own a Quick Charge compatible device, then this will not charge it at its max charging speed.

Input Charging:

The recharging speed of the power bank is 5V/2.0A and by using a 2 Amp USB wall charger or higher you’re able to recharge the power bank as fast as possible which results in the portable charger being able to charge to its full power within just 3.5 hours.

Design

Size and Weight:

One of the best parts of this Innogie power bank is its design and that would be because it’s a small and slim power bank that is very easy to take with you anywhere.

It has a length of 4.4 inches, a width of 3 inches and a thickness of 0.3 inches. The weight of the charger is 4.5 ounces. So this 4,600mAh power bank can fit into your pocket just as a smartphone would and that can’t be said about too many other power banks that have nearly a 5,000mAh power capacity; since most power banks that are within this power range have a bulkier design.

Functional Components:

There are very few functional components with this power bank and all of them fit on just a single side of the power bank.

On the short side of the power bank is where you’ll find the USB Output port, the Micro-USB Input port and also 4 Blue LED power capacity indicators. The very strange thing about this power bank is that there’s no power button because charging automatically starts once you connect a device to the power bank. Even so, most power banks that have automatic charging still have a power button it’s just that this Innogie Air Series power bank takes the bare bones approach and doesn’t have a power button at all.

Build

Structure and Material:

The entirety of the power bank is made of Aluminum and as a result of that, it has a solid build quality that is able to withstand light drops onto the ground. Just don’t go treating it like a Rugged power bank though.

Tech:

On the tech side, the power bank does a good enough job with providing safety tech to keep charging safe for you and your devices; it’s also good with not heating up, and the reason that I said that is because the power bank uses Lithium Polymer batteries that are known for heating up. Not this power bank though and that is a good thing.

Reliability

We really think that this Innogie power bank holds a lot of promises no matter what USB chargeable device you’re going to charge. It has a slim form factor that is going to be very easy for portability and it also has powerful charging speeds. However, if you have a Quick Charge compatible device then you’re not going to be able to charge your smartphone at its max charging speed because the Innogie power bank does not feature Quick Charge.

It’s also really easy to use and if you want a power bank that is as simple as it gets, and reliable for when you want to use it; then this power bank is the one for you as charging automatically starts when you connect a device to the charger.

The design of this power bank is its strongest point because it has a slim form factor and it barely has any functional components. Most notably it doesn’t even have a power button because charging automatically starts when you connect the device.

The Innogie power bank is made of Aluminum and it uses Lithium Polymer battery that is well optimized because it doesn’t heat up while you’re charging.

Reliability:
