Laptop Power Banks Over Generators? My Opinion

Power banks are small portable chargers, meant to withhold power for later use in charging of phones, tablets, laptops etc when electricity is simply out of reach. This was first brought into Nigeria by manufactures of cheap Android phones like Tecno, Opsson. Due to the substandard nature of the batteries that comes with this phones.

But then, you must have heard about mobile phones power bank like Android, Infinix zero, Opsson power banks and a host of others. But have you heard of laptop power banks??

As With the present state of electricity in Nigeria, the hype in price of Laptops with lasting battery life and the constant increase in price of petrol / diesel for generators, one may wonder what the last resort would be for blogger, graphic designers, those that depend solemnly on online businesses in need of power for daily usage of their laptops.

Laptop power banks come in different capacities, sizes, spec and price. And depends on users choice.

Power Bank Or Generator Which To Buy?

Due to the high cost of laptop power banks(#12,000 and above), you maybe faced with the task of choosing between power bank and a small I pass my neither generator retailed at 14k+. But the answer, is not far fetched with the following lines. But may solemnly depend on what you prefer instead.

1. You need fuel to run generators, whilst you can easily charge your power banks while away and use at no cost at all.
==>2. Generators are generally troublesome especially when you fall for the Chinese types. And requires constant maintenance to serve while power banks are just buy, charge and use.
==>3. To avoid troubles from neighbors, generator aught to be put off at certain hours of the night while power banks could take you on a night vigil.
==>4. Some power banks are even solar charged. Meaning no extra cost for use. And fits in perfectly in  a country like ours where heat from the sun is enough for maize roasting.
==>5. Mobility is king. If you travel your power can as well travel with you. But not the other way round with a generator or do you travel around with your generator?
