Given the sheer amount of powerbanks on the market, you’d be forgiven for thinking they’re all a bit much of a muchness – like fidget spinners, or refugees. But nothing could be further from the truth, and you should actually spend a little bit of time considering your options when buying a portable battery that could explode at any time and burn your entire house down in your sleep if it was shoddily engineered.

I’ve spent a fair bit of time using one of Sandberg’s smaller offerings and as usual, it’s well up to par with premium priced options within a budget. Of course you’re going to see similar, maybe even larger sized banks for less money, but you know for sure when you buy a Sandberg product it isn’t literally going to blow up in your face.

What I really like about it is the low profile. It’s small and light, easily pocketable, and sturdy at the same time.

Some small criticisms – the connections don’t always feel 100% solid and it’s a little cheap to the touch. Everything sticks together well enough but the plasticky veneer is a bit grotty to hold. Overall, though, it’s a quality product, and I wish I could find more to say about it, but the thing about essentials like powerbanks is that they should just work – and that’s what Sandberg have achieved with this lovely simple little number.
