Power banks that have Built-In charging cables are great to have because that way it’s an ultimate portable charger because it’s not only portable power, but it’s portable power that you can always use.

You don’t have to worry about carrying around a separate charging cable around with you because the power bank already has it.

Also, what makes a power bank with a built-in charging cable even more useful is when it uses a USB charging port for those times when you need to charge a device that isn’t compatible with the Built-In charging cable.

In this case, this MIPOW power bank that has an Apple MFi certified charging cable built right into the power bank itself is very useful because it also has a USB charging output port.

Power Capacity:

It’s wrong to think that that the power capacity that’s stated on Amazon and on the power bank itself is the power capacity that you’ll be receiving because it’s simply not true.

In this case, the MIPOW power bank uses a Lithium Polymer battery and it has a 2.4A Max Output. The power goes through a conversion process and therefore with the use of Polymer batteries and a potential charging speed of 2.4A, the Output power capacity is most likely going to be 7,000mAh.

Power is lost through the power bank itself and through charging cable inefficiencies.

With that said, this isn’t bad and the power capacity of 7,000mAh that you can use is going to be helpful to charge most smartphones lots of times over.

This power bank is very helpful for the target customers that own an iPhone because it’ll be able to even charge an iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 up to their full power capacities at least 2.5 times. Charging Android smartphones can also serve you well.

Also, since it has a Lightning charging cable, you’ll probably want to charge your iPad and even though the power bank won’t charge either iPad Mini or a Full-Sized one to its full power, it still does a good job at least bringing them about 80-90% of the way through.

Output Charging:

Output charging is quite good but it could be better.

This is because the max output of the power bank is 5V/2.4A and the MIPOW has 2 ways to charge devices. Either through the Built-in Lightning charging cable or the USB Output charging port.

You can use both of them at the same time but that’s not the best idea if you want to charge your device as fast as possible since the Max Output of 2.4 Amps is shared through the 2 charging methods.

If you’re using the max Output of power when using both charging methods then the Output of each will be 5V/1.2A.

So it’s best to use one at a time because let’s say that you’re charging your iPhone 6 with the Lightning charging cable. Well, the iPhone 6 has a max charging speed of 2 Amps and so using the USB Output port to charge another device simultaneously is going to slow down charging.

Also, you can even charge an iPad at its max charging speed of 5V/2.4A but you must charge it alone with the power bank so the Output power isn’t separated.

Input Charging:

The MIPOW has a recharge speed of 5V/1.5A and as long as you’re using a 2 Amp wall charger to recharge the power bank, the fastest it will recharge will be in 6-7 hours.

Size and Weight:

The size and weight are the most important parts of the charger because you can tell just by looking at it that it’s a small one but let’s see if it’s that small or even lightweight.

It has a length/width of 3.6 inches and a thickness of 0.7 inches. So it’s small and it can be very useful for those times when you need to use your smartphone and charge it at the same time because you easily hold the power bank in the hand.

Although placing it into your pocket might be quite uncomfortable because it’s thick and it weighs 8.8 ounces which makes it half a pound.

The weight of the power bank can be attributed to its Aluminum casing.

Functional Components:

Since it’s a small power bank it’s very easy to use and almost everything is on the siding.

On the side is where you’ll find the Built-In Lightning charging cable, the power button, the USB Output port, and the Micro-USB Input port. There are 4 Blue LED power capacity indicators on top of the charger.

Charging automatically begins once you connect a device through either of the charging options since once the power bank detects a draw of power, it turns on.

At the bottom of the power bank, 4 rubber balls make putting the power bank onto a desk a great way to place it because it’ll be hovering off the desk a little.


Structure and Material:

The entire power bank is made of Aluminum that makes it strong but it’s what also makes it heavier.


MIPOW doesn’t mention any safety features but the power bank does have FCC, RoHS, and CE certifications that it has the basis of safety tech features.

This power bank is highly reliable for those that are going to use the Built-in Lightning charging cable because that way you’ll always have a reliable way to charge your iPhone or your iPad because you always have the charging cable to use the power bank.

Additionally, if you want to charge another device with a separate charging cable, then you can do that too.

However, it’s wise to know that you shouldn’t just go charging 2 devices at once without knowing that you’re sacrificing charging speed when doing so.

An Output power capacity that’s still enough to charge most smartphones multiple times over. The Max Output is very good for when you’re charging a single device at a time because once you’re charging 2 devices with the MIPOW power bank, things can get slow.


It’s a small charger but a heavy one. Easy to use with all of the charging components being close together.


The Aluminum shell makes the power bank strong.


It’s a very reliable power bank for those that mostly use Apple devices like an iPhone or iPad.
