Powercard Slim Power Bank review

20180521 X 0019 fb

It doesn’t matter how long your phone battery lasts, sooner or later you’ll be low on battery power. When that happens, your choices are limited: Stop using your phone, plug it in, or use a battery power bank to charge it. The Xoopar Powercard Slim Power Bank makes that last choice an easy one.

What is it?

The Xoopar Powercard Slim Power Bank is an incredibly thin 1300mAh powerbank for charging your phone. At only 0.22 inch thick, it’s thinner than a standard USB plug! Having the same dimensions as a credit card, you could literally put it in your wallet.

Design and features

The Powercard Slim Power Bank is the size of credit card, and about as thick as 5 credit cards.

If you’re constantly needing a recharge on your phone, this probably isn’t the device you’ll want to use on a regular basis. However, if you want to have a battery around just in case you need to top off your phone battery or make an emergency call, then this is the device to stash somewhere.

I use these types of batteries often, and one thing that has always been a determining factor for me is their size. Often they’re thick and just take up too much room in your pocket or bag. I can put this in my cargo pants pocket along with my wallet and I can’t even tell the difference in weight.

Just how much charge it will provide your phone will vary greatly on both the size of your phone and what your phone is doing, but it should charge it 1/2 to 3/4’s of a full charge for a smartphone.

To use the Powercard Slim Power Bank you simply push the USB port cover back slightly, this will raise the slot slightly, plug in your charging cable and you’re good to go.

The LED indicates the charge left: Green color – Full charge. Blue color – Half charge; Red color – you are at 25% or less.

What I like

  • Extremely convenient size
  • LED Status light

What needs to be improved

  • User manual LED indicator descriptions vary from website description.
  • LED’s blink while charging, but you have no idea how full it is while it’s charging.

Final thoughts

I was really impressed by this little battery! It was even thinner than I thought it would be, and I’ll be taking it with me quite often.

  2. Cool device ! Probably best not to keep in one’s wallet in the back pocket. Bending = opening = air+Li = BOOM !
