Introduction :

 

We've all done it.  We are getting ready to go out the door in a mad rush, and pick up our phone only to see it's dead or dying battery grinning at us.  If you are like me, it usually happens on a really important day and with no time to charge it.  No doubt, you will have seen phone chargers that will give a slight boost.  I had one once.  There were all of these ends for Samsung, iphone, etc.  I lost all of those and to boot, it only gave you enough charge to make one quick phone call. In the end I threw it away.  Well, as luck would have it, Sandberg have created a Powerbank that will charge not one but two devices at the same time!  Yes, you can charge up to two iphone X phones to full capacity at one go.  *Provided you have the nifty item charged to full of course*  That will be my downfall, remembering to charge the charger.  

Without further ado, let's take a closer look at the Sandberg Saver Powerbank 5000.   Feel free to watch our video.  If you like it please like up on it.  If you have questions or comments feel free to leave those too.  We encourage you to subscribe to our YouTube so you never miss a beat.

Packaging:

The Sandberg Saver Powerbank 5000 comes in a n attractive box with a hanger for slat walls.  There is a high quality picture and text on a black background.  The border on the box edge is blue which makes it sand out.  All of the relevant information you would need is on the box and it is clear and easy to see.

  • Remove the device from your computer

Testing:

 

In testing we found that Phil could charge his iphone X twice before he needed to recharge the Powerbank.  Therefore, this also concludes that it would be easy to charge two iphones simultaneously.  Of course, the Powerbank would need to be fully charged as when we did our testing.

£10.99  RRP

Spire Technology

Conclusion:

I think this is a nice device.  It is well worth the price and does what it promises.  I don't think you would be let down by it at all.  In fact, I think you would be quite happy with it.  This would be useful in situations where Phil and I go to a computer show and we both need to charge our phones.  Charge this overnight for the day, I can carry it in my laptop bag or handbag and charge my phone and Phil's without having to go back to the room or take up a USB slot on my laptop.
