Power Up

I always thought that I wouldn’t need a PowerBank because I hardly use my handphone while I’m out and I didn’t like the idea of lugging a PowerBank which will ultimately add weight to my already heavy handbag. In addition, I always think that a PowerBank can only charge my phone for a couple of times before it runs flat again. Maybe I am just not catching fast enough with technology because PowerBanks like the ones from GP battery has such a long battery life that it can charge my phone up to 4 times. These battery experts has taken up battery charging to the next level.
Here with me is one of GP x Smiley® Special Edition PowerBank series which has 5,200mAh of ‘Happy Energy’. It weighs only 135g with a slim (1.35cm) portable design and it comes in 6 different versions of Smiley® face including “Smiley face, illusion, sunglasses, heart eye and yummy face”. I’ve got the “I’m in love” smiley face stuck to my PowerBank and it is really eye-catching. My eyes just gets naturally drawn to it when it is placed on my work desk, right next to my laptop.
This GPXSmiley World PowerBank also has a fast charging speed and it’s faster than charging a phone directly from the powerpoint. It’s crazy and now I’m using it to charge my phone. This gadget can last me over 2 days. Especially during weekends when I’m not in the office to charge my phone.
It’s super easy to operate. Power up, charge up and go!

GP has also launched its Smart On-The-Go accessories which include USB Car Chargers, USB Wall Chargers and Charge & Sync USB Cables.
I also had the GP Charge & Sync Lightning USB Cables (CB13 and CB21) which are MFi-certificated (made for iPhone/iPad/iPod) for you to work with ease with the well-lit iPads, iPhones or iPods. The wire itself is 2 metres long which is great if you charging your iPads which might need a longer extended wire.
The other product I’ve got is GP’s USB Wall Chargers which feature the brand’s signature 3-layer accessory safety protection against over current, short circuit and over voltage. It has a dual USB ports with ultra-fast charging speed at 3.4 A (17 W) for charging two devices at the same time. It’s great to bring it along during your travels where you might need to charge more than one devices at one go and where powerpoints may be limited. And if you are travelling with someone, you don’t have to take turns to get your devices charge at places with only one powerpoint.

Time to power up, people!
