Make Work From Home Switch Easier for Employees With Printed Power Banks

The recent global pandemic completely changed the fabric of society. Lockdown measures meant that people had to come up with new ways to work and socialise, all the while maintaining a safe distance from each other. Therefore, it’s not surprising that so many companies had to have employees working from home to keep their business going.

Working from home is a business model with many advantages. Employees have a more flexible schedule, a less stressful work environment, and they no longer have to waste time commuting to the office. The only thing they have to worry about is their electronics dying on them during important meetings. And this is an issue companies can easily fix with custom portable chargers.

A portable power bank is a must-have for any employee that relies on tech to perform their job. They’re an easy way to keep electronics charged while on the go, or during an unexpected power outage. Plus, since they’re a functional item with a pretty sizable branding area, they make for excellent promotional material, too. With the company logo on the front of the printed power bank, brands can take the advertising out of the office and into employees’ own homes.


Custom Portable Chargers: The Best Branded Gift of All Time

Electronics haven’t just taken over people’s personal lives — they’ve also come to define their professional ones as well. Nowadays, it’s practically impossible to do any job without the aid of a laptop, tablet or other devices. Consequently, employees must have their electronics on them at all times to ensure they can complete their workload as intended.

This is why power banks are an essential branded product an employee can own. They come with a plethora of practical and marketing advantages that make them the best gift a brand can hand out to their staff.

1.   Perfect for Remote Working

A lot of gadgets have pretty impressive battery life. However, even the most top-quality battery can’t handle running for 8 hours, non-stop. Consequently, it’s vital for employees to keep their devices charged if they want them to run throughout their work day.

The first choice is to plug them into a wall outlet. However, a power bank such as GoPromotional’s Cosmos Power Bank is also a viable option. If the employee is experiencing an issue with their charger, or if they’re on the go, a portable power bank is how they keep their devices powered. That way, they can stay connected wherever they go.

2.   Compact

Lugging around a clunky laptop or tablet is already enough of a hassle. So it’s a good thing power banks are so compact. These gadgets come in a variety of shapes and sizes for convenient carry. They’re roughly the size of a hand, meaning that users can snugly fit them in their laptop bags or pockets.

These devices pack more than enough juice to fully charge most tablets, smartphones, and other devices. They also have an AC, USB/A, and USB/C output, thus allowing users to charge multiple devices at once. Therefore, they never have to worry about their battery dying on them in the middle of something important.

3.   Large Charging Capacity

When buying a portable charger, the most important thing to consider is its capacity. Charging capacity refers to the amount of power a battery can hold. It’s measured using milliamp-hours, or mAh for short. Overall, the more mAh a battery has, the longer it will last and the faster it will charge a device.

Most quality power banks pack between  27,000 to 30,000 mAh, which is more than enough to fully charge a cellphone with a 4,000 mAh capacity. But even a power bank with 8,000 mAh such as our Forzza Aluminium Power Bank is more than enough Moreover, most portable chargers are compatible with electrical equipment within 100 W. So, not only can users fully charge all their devices, but they can also recharge the power bank itself wherever they choose.

4.   Premium Quality

Not only do portable chargers have an impressive charge capacity, but they’re also durable as well. Most manufacturers make power banks using a combination of aluminium alloy, ABS, and silicone. These three materials combined ensure the charger is sturdy enough to handle external damage as well as withstand higher temperatures. As a result, the charger is highly resistant to overheating and is likely to last employees for years to come.

Furthermore, the power bank has in-built overcharging protection. One of the most pervasive myths is that it’s possible to overcharge a phone or a laptop. While all electronics have a mechanism to avoid drawing too much energy from the charger if full, charging can still cause damage. This is because leaving the electronic plugged in can heat up the battery, leading to damage.

However, manufacturers have designed the portable charger to minimise device overheating. Consequently, employees don’t have to worry about leaving their devices plugged in at all times.

5.   Perfect for Branding

A lesser-known benefit of portable chargers is their incredible advertising potential. The front has a sizable branding area that can fit a well-crafted company logo. Plus, a brand can order them in a variety of sleek colours to make the design pop.

That way, they can advertise their business both at home and at the office — not to mention wherever the user takes the power bank.
