Buying Guide: Power Stations


What should I consider when buying a power station?

When you’re planning to purchase a power station, consider its

  • battery capacity and type
  • number of charging ports
  • charging compatibility
  • weight
  • size and noise level

Ideally, your new power station is a sturdy, reliable, and portable charging tool for all your small devices that consume a low amount of power. It should have a large battery capacity that can last a long time, recharge quickly, and provide consistent, lasting power for your smartphone, tablet, laptop, and more. Plus, it should be fairly quiet and have multiple ports for different kinds of devices, including USB, AC, DC, and several other ports. Having many ports will let you charge everything at once for ultimate peace of mind.

This is where our Vault Power Station comes in. Whether you’re out camping with the kids for the weekend, or need emergency power for your phone during a sudden blackout, the tzumi Vault Power Station has got you covered.

How much should a power station cost?

The less expensive power stations that don’t pack as much power or as many charging ports cost on average under $100. The biggest and most powerful ones can reach into the range of $700-$800, with some even costing over $1000 on some sites!

A power station’s price tag can vary widely, and it depends on many, many factors, with the biggest ones being

  • size
  • battery capacity
  • battery type
  • number of charging ports, and more

You deserve the very best when it comes to getting fast and streamlined power on the go. The tzumi Vault’s price comes in on the much lower end of the cost spectrum mentioned above, while providing just as much value as even the most advanced power stations.

What’s the best kind of battery for a power station to have?

A portable power station’s battery type may not seem very important, but in actuality it is a crucial thing to think about when choosing a power station. The battery used in a power station heavily plays a huge role in the product’s weight, size, cost, charging speed, and much more. Lithium-ion (Li-Ion), lithium-polymer (Li-Po), and lead-acid batteries are the battery types that are most often used for power stations like the Vault.

The Vault has a very powerful Li-Ion battery, which usually charges up to three times faster than lead-acid batteries, and packs the most energy out of the three battery types mentioned above.

On the other hand, Li-Po (lithium-polymer) batteries have less power than Li-Ion batteries, but can typically charge faster than the other two.

Lead-acid batteries usually cost the least out of the three, but unfortunately, they often sacrifice charging speed, power, and a lightweight design as a compromise.

If you want a faster charging and slightly more energy-efficient option, then perhaps a Li-Po power station is for you. However, those that want a lightweight, portable power station that can be used frequently should invest in a Li-Ion battery power station. The Vault is one of the most reliable and efficient Li-Ion power stations available, with an ultra-portable that can go with you anywhere to charge all your small devices in a pinch.

What kinds of devices should I be able to charge with a power station?

You can easily charge most smaller devices with a power station. Whether it be a phone, tablet, laptop, smartwatch, a set of earbuds, or other device that consumes a low amount of power, it’ll get a quick and reliable charge from a decent power station.

Larger appliances such as vacuums, bulky gaming consoles, mini fridges, or TVs may charge slower or not be able to recharge via a standard portable power station such as the Vault. Be sure to read your product’s user guide carefully for more specific instructions.
