After months and months of looking around online and researching which powerbank to get, I finally found the perfect one for my needs! From the generic China brands, to ones w/ known brand names, to high-end brands, I chose the Romoss Sailing series powerbank. Ain’t she a beauty? Haha
First of all, I am very picky when it comes to things like these. I did not want to keep buying and trying different types of it until I happen to luckily purchase the one that fits my needs.. it would be a waste to have all sorts of smaller-capacity powerbanks, don’t you think? So I picked the one that at least has more capacity than the first powerbank I had (which I sold after). Couldn’t be more happier with my purchase. 🙂 More photos under the cut!
My other reason for writing this post is to be a helping hand to anyone who would look up the brand and this product. 🙂 I noticed there weren’t many photos about it either, so here you go. Enjoy the gadget pawrn, whoever’s reading this now. Hahaha! I suppose this can be informative, too. There might be fakes out there. Slightly, I am paranoid that mine might be! I hope not! I bought it from a brick and mortar store, complete w/ replacement and service warranty.
The other things I liked and contributed to purchasing and choosing Romoss is its form factor. I love it! The design is minimalist, plus points for that! It is heavy, like a brick, but somehow it feels lighter weighing it next to my previous powerbank which was a burden to bring around whenever I take it with me when I go out. There’s just something about this when you hold it that feels like it’s of premium quality, like it was solid-built and doesn’t feel cheap at all.
The Romoss Sailing 5 powerbank has a 13000mAh capacity. As far as I know, this can fully charge my phone 6x. When I got it, straight out of the box it had 4 bars available (so it was fully charged when I got it). I used the product straight from the box for two days now and I haven’t recharged it since then. I was able to charge my phone 3x and my digicam and I’ve yet to reach 1 bar. This powerbank series by Romoss also uses Samsung SDI batteries.
To compare, the previous powerbank I had takes an entire day to fully charge, but during real-world use, the battery consumes around 3/5 bars in just one charge. My phone battery’s capacity is 2000mAh, and the previous powerbank’s capacity is 11000mAh, so it shouldn’t deplete that quickly. Weird. Maybe I got a faulty unit. 😐
Since the day I got this powerbank, I have been using it as much as I can to drain the battery and charge it for the first time but it just won’t drain.. it’s taking too long. Hahaha! That’s a good thing, I think, because it means it has the right amount of battery capacity as advertised lol.
Where to buy?
Now that you read through my looong review and saw the photos, you may or may not be curious and want to get one for yourself too. I bought the powerbank online, BUT when I texted the seller, I was very surprised to know that the product is actually sold at a physical store. Even more surprising is that they were readily available to be purchased on the same day as I inquired at the nearest mall to me.
I found the seller on a TPC ad listing. Contact the number on one of the Romoss powerbank listings. Apparently there is a big difference in the price if you buy from there, or inquire to them first, rather than walk-in to the physical store. Big discount. So there. You’re welcome.
Thanks again for the powerbank!! I might buy another one soon. My first purchase was a test, see if the brand holds up. If it’s good enough I’ll get a portable model. Not to say that the one I bought is not. 😛
