The Onn portable power bank is essential for any busy person that’s always on the go. It’s capable of charging power hungry devices, such as my IPhone for up to four full charges.

There’s no way I could ignore all this critical stuff, no matter how low my phone battery goes. What’s a guy to do?

A few weeks ago I decided to pick up the Onn portable battery power bank from Walmart. I got tired of trying to remember to bring my phone charger, and finding a place to charge it. This is one of the biggest challenges that a Folding Bicycle Commuter faces. There’s no place to plug a cell phone on a bicycle or public transportation. I could always stop at a restaurant but then I’d have to wait there, something I can’t do if short on time.

The Onn portable power bank is not only useful for commuters. Let’s say the power goes out at home and your cell phone is almost out of juice. During times like this it is very important to have a phone for emergencies. With a power bank you can charge your phone more than once. This is very useful during extended periods of time without power.

The Onn portable power bank is great for commuting

The same goes for commuters or travels. Let’s say your car breaks down miles from nowhere. If you have no battery power in your car for some reason, at least you can still charge your phone. It becomes even more important if the weather is very bad such as below zero conditions. The last thing you want is to have your phone go dead when having to make long or multiple phone calls for help.

I could also see a very big use for the Onn portable power bank while flying. I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve landed somewhere and was low on battery power. Not knowing my way around, using the GPS and looking up information was very essential. All these programs can use up cell phone power very fast. And being on a time frame to catch public transportation, it can be almost impossible to stop somewhere to charge up. Also, not knowing the surrounding areas too well, it can be hard finding a place.
