Why Do Power Banks Stop Working?

Why Do Power Banks Stop Working?

Apr 8,2023
  • Battery Age: Battery technology is improving all the time, but even the latest and greatest are still mortal, especially batteries that are frequently and irregularly charged and discharged (like power banks and smartphone batteries). If you’ve had your power bank more than two or three years and use it often, you may’ve simply worn your battery out.

  • Cable/Socket Issues: Not all power bank maintenance issues are battery problems. If either the AC power cord (if applicable), USB cable or USB socket is damaged, you may have difficulty interfacing with your device. Fortunately, a USB cable at least is much cheaper to replace than an entire power bank.

  • Weather/Temperature Damage: Batteries are sensitive to differences in ambient temperature. In this interest of holding your hand through all kinds of weather, we’ve prepared guides for using our power banks in both extreme heat and extreme cold. (Look for our guide on power bank safety in extremely nondescript weather, publication TBD.)
