ASUS announces the 9600 mAh ZenPower power bank
The Taiwanese tech company ASUS has announced the new portable ZenPower power bank, which allows users to recharge various mobile devices while on the go. The power bank was first introduced at CES 2015 and offers 9600 mAh of power.
The device competes with the Xiaomi 10400 mAh power bank but the lower power capacity hints of a smaller size and indeed this is the case with the ZenPower – the power bank is 18 mm thick and weighs 215 grams, which makes it slightly lighter than the Xiaomi version, which weighs 250 grams and is 21.6 mm thick.
The ASUS ZenPower is made of three 3200 mAh batteries, compared to four 2600 mAh batteries on the Mi 10400 mAh power pack. The ZenPower has 11 layers of protection, a full USB port with 5V/2.4V output, a micro USB slot for charging, a power button and four LED lights. The power pack has enough power to charge four smartphones or three tablets in case of need.
The ZenPower is available in black, gold, white, blue and pink metallic colors with rubber sleeves in red, yellow, green, black or gray colors. No word on pricing or availability as of now, though.
