In the year 2020, according to research, Nigeria was placed 131st out of 190 countries in electricity supply. Sadly, Nigeria has arguably the largest power deficit globally despite its natural resources.
The average Nigerian grew old knowing power was unstable. With kids running the street in the dark, to moonlight tales, to people shouting ” Up Nepa”, overjoyed. Obviously, there were times of no “NEPA” (National Electric Power Authority.)
Electricity has always been an issue in Nigeria, and generators and solar energy have strived to improve it. Technology keeps bringing smart devices that are changing the course of life for millions of Nigerians. However, there is always the question of ensuring that the devices stay on whenever they are needed.
Fortunately, the days when battery life could only be recharged when it was connected to active electricity, either light, solar power, or generators, are behind us.
There’s a new revolution now as technology has evolved and power banks are now in existence. Power banks have opened Nigerians to a world of possibilities. Now you can charge your gadgets on the go without any source of “physical, active electricity” except energy produced and confined in a small box… A Power Bank.

3. Power Banks can substitute actual power supply:
Power Banks are great, but they shouldn’t be used as the primary power source for recharging your device. They are accessories and should stay that way. This is because the energy and speed of charging are still far in technology from being matched up.
Selecting the best power bank for a device: What you should know.
A Power Bank is not a one size fits all device. The power bank is different for different devices, and this is why it is very important to painstakingly walk through these steps before choosing a power bank.

One of the first things to look out for when choosing a power bank for a phone or laptop is to check that the number of milliamperes hours on the power bank exceeds the number of milliampere-hour theDevicee. This ensures the power bank can charge yourDevicee at least twice before it eventually runs out of battery juice.

- Purchase from Oraimo: Quality should be a priority in purchasing a power bank. Oraimo is one brand tested and trusted for producing nothing but quality.

- Work within your budget: Invest in quality but work within your budget. You must check your budget while still looking into the aforementioned criteria. Interestingly, Oraimo offers such a wide range of power bank prices that you can very easily fit them into your budget.
Technology took Power Banks a Step Further.
The common kind of power bank is the wireless power bank with ports, to which USB cables are attached to charge your devices. Now, technology has evolved again and has brought wireless Power banks with touch sensors to our table. Now, phones can be charged by merely placing phones on power banks.
In addition to this, technology has also gone ahead to bring us solar power banks. Solar power banks have helped solve the problem of inadequate electricity to charge the power banks themselves. Now, all it requires is to use the solar panel or sensor to charge the power bank. This way, one never runs out of battery juice both on phones and in power banks.
