‘ZDNet Recommends’ What exactly does that mean?

ZDNet’s recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNet nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

Top ZDNET Reviews

The EasyAcc 10,000CF is much heavier than the 9000mAh power bank at 7.97 ounces. It is sleek and slim and has two USB ports and an integrated torch. It is larger too -- about the size of an iPhone 6. The charger comes with a short USB / micro USB cable

The charging pack is black with orange pinstripe detailing down each side and an orange top and bottom. The power button is unobtrusive at the top of one of the edges of the power bank.

Pressing this button lights the battery level indicator. Double clicking the button will switch on or off the LED torch feature. The micro USB charging port is opposite the power button on the side of the power bank.

Like the 9,000mAh power bank, this charger identifies which type of device you are using and modifies the level of its charge accordingly. It has an input voltage of 5V and an output of up to 2.4V.

Both power banks charge up quickly and hold their full charge for weeks. They charged my Lumia 1520 almost three times each from a single charge. Both power banks feel well constructed and solid although the plastic might shatter if dropped repeatedly.

Overall, both of these chargers are a good addition to your travel bag and will give you repeated charges when you are out and about.
