Our Review of Swipe ELITE Power Bank with 13000mAh Capacity @ Rs. 1,099

The design is a bit of a letdown and hence when we first saw the power bank, it was not quite impressive. It also felt very bulky with a weight of 320 g. The front side looks simple but the back of the power bank is fully covered by Swipe’s logo in a bigger size. Swipe insists on having very large branding on it’s devices that are really large and sometimes garish. It comes in black color and Soft Gold too. We got the black one to try out.

The power bank has a finish made of rubber and as a result it has a good grip. When we hold in hands it is non-slippery. It also looks sturdy with its design. It comes with three charging ports – a 1A USB port and two 2.1 A USB ports. So at a time you can charge three mobile phones without any hassles. It also comes with a micro USB port so that we can charge the power bank. Swipe Elite power bank comes with lithium ion battery. It also has LED lights so that we are able to know how much charge is there in the power bank.

When it came the charge was very low and we charged the power bank so that we can use it and test it.  It took approximately 5 to 5 and a half hours to charge the power bank. And we tried to use the power bank and charged our mobile phones. When we charged our mobile phones in the 2.1A port, the phone got charged very fast. We could charge three mobile phones at a time. It lasts for three full charge and even after that there is some charge. So it is quite good as we can charge them very fast.

Here are the specifications of the power bank.

If you are looking for a power bank which is slim and compact this power bank is not for you. But if you are looking for a sturdy power bank which gives you an option of fast charging your mobile phone, you can go for Swipe Elite Power Bank.
