Zendure SuperMini Go: Rugged power bank that does it all
Power banks have become like smartphones — little black slabs with no character. Zendure is aiming to change that with the new SuperMini GO.
Launched on Indiegogo today, the SuperMini GO is a 10,000mAh that features a 20W PD USB-C port and a second USB-A port for legacy devices and devices requiring trickle charging. It also incorporates a magnetic wireless charging pad for charging up smartphones wirelessly.
Yup, everything you need for charging in a small package.
10,000mAh of battery capacity might not sound like a lot, but it’s enough to almost recharge up an iPhone 13 Pro Max twice, which isn’t bad at all. A smaller iPhone, such as the iPhone 12, can be recharged two and a half times before the power bank needs recharging.
The SuperMini GO also has a handy LCD display on the back that’s color-coordinated to the design of the power bank (it comes in a range of colors – Sunset Cyan, Galaxy Black, and Space Silver).
Everything is packed in a durable rubberized outer shell that looks like an old-timey camera.
Yeah, it’s a cute look. I’m someone who normally likes functional and practical, and even I like this look.
It’s fresh and different and fun.
“When we design a product, the user experience is always at the forefront,” said Zendure CEO and founder Bryan Liu. “Magnetic docking and 3-in-1 charging capabilities make SuperMini GO a joy to use, and we had a little fun with the aesthetic so we could deliver even more of that joy.”
But don’t let the outside fool you. The power bank is all business.
I’ve been testing a sample for a couple of weeks, and it ticks all the boxes. Capacity is spot on (I’ve discharged and charged this power bank a number of times to make sure the capacity is as listed), the USB-C port is capable of a sustained 20W output, and the wireless charger outputs a maximum of 15W (going down to 5W depending on device).
The SuperMini GO will also charge three devices simultaneously (total output is limited to 20W), or it can charge a device while it is being recharged.
If you want a fully-featured, portable power bank that’s got a bit of style to it, check out the SuperMini GO. I’ve tried and tested a lot of Zendure products and the company never disappoints.
