Why It Is Important To Have A Power Bank In A Survival Kit?
Let's be honest, our smartphones have become an extension of ourselves.
One, in the sense that everything, from video recommendations to advertisements, everything is highly personalized and catered to our needs.
In other words, they are just rightly targeted.
And two, they are our cameras, GPS, and maps. They have moved past the point of just being our communication device.
That's exactly why in a survival situation, a smartphone can be much more than just a means of communication.
- It can mean your way out.
- It can mean your guide.
- It can mean a dozen of other equally important things.
It can help you navigate your way out of a tricky situation, communicate with the outside world, and even provide entertainment during the long wait for assistance.
But, here's the most important thing though.
In order to make use of your smartphone in a survival situation, you need to keep it charged.
You must keep it charged.
And this is exactly where a power bank comes in handy.
With a power bank, you keep your smartphone charged and ready for use.
You can even use it to charge other essential items in a survival kit, for example, your flashlight or GPS device.
How To Select The Right Power Bank For A Survival Kit?
Now that we have established why a power bank is important in a survival kit, let's look at how to select one.
Most importantly, how to select the right one.
Here are some things to keep in mind when selecting the right power bank for your survival kit:
Let's start with the basics first.
So, the capacity of a power bank is measured in milliampere-hours (mAh).
That's exactly why a power bank cover necessarily mentions mAh on the front - no matter what.
The higher the capacity, the better, for three main reasons:
- The more times it can charge your device.
- It can charge multiple devices at the same time.
- Most importantly, it can charge one device rapidly - if that happens to be the only device you're charging at a time.
So for a survival kit, you want a power bank with a capacity of at least 10,000mAh.
Portability is key in a power bank.
Especially when it comes to a survival kit.
And what contributes to the portability of power better than small size and lightweight?
Both of those qualities make it easy for you to carry them around with you.
Keeping that in perspective, you want to look for power banks that are ideally the size of your smartphone.
If not, then they shouldn't be any bigger than the size of your smartphone.
And that's exactly why we, at Dany Technologies, keep all of our power banks pocket-sized.
Making it easy for you to carry around in day-to-day situations, let alone a survival kit.
Your gear will be put through its paces.
That's what you can promise yourself when committing to an expedition.
With that in mind, you want a power bank that is durable.
Not only in the sense that it's long-lasting but also in the sense that it withstands rough handling.
The charging time of a power bank can vary depending on various things, two of them are capacity and the number of devices you're charging at a time, or the number of times you've charged the same device for that matter.
Look for power banks that have a fast charging time, or higher capacity.
That way, you quickly get to charge your device or devices and get back to the task at hand.
