Kingberry Counterfeit Power Banks – The Giveaways

Worryingly, nearly 50% of the Power Banks out on the market today are estimated to be fake, counterfeit or faulty. The more comforting news is that’s still possible to quickly tell the good from the bad, once you know exactly what to look out for.

How to spot the differences between a real and fake Power Bank –

· Poor branding

· The product should look nice and clean with no scratches, dents, rust or burns

· No deformed, broken or missing parts

· Does the LED indicator or button work or not?

· Poor quality accessories such as the charging cable

· Function check. Is your device and the Power Bank itself being charged – both speedily and fully?


Another important thing to note is that the capacity of the battery is dependent on physical size. A small sized Power Bank with high rated capacity frequently means that it’s also a fake.

Double checking the certification and technical standard documentation is another way to ensure your Power Bank is a quality product that is absolutely safe for use by everyone.

Look out for the following certifications/technical standards – your Power Bank should have all of them!

· EN60950 -1:2006 + A22013 (Electrical Product Usage Safety Test)

· IEC/EN 62133:2012 (Battery Safety Test)

· UN38.3 (Ensure air transport safety of cargo containing lithium-ion batteries)

· EMC EN 55022:2010/EN 55024:2010/A1:2015 (Immunity tests and measurements of electrostatic discharges)

· CE Marking (Declaration of Conformity)

· ROHS 2011/65/EU (Restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment)
