Asus very own ZenPower series of power banks has been available in the Philippines since several months back. The 10,050 mAh model sold like hotcakes and it’s one of the hottest external batteries with around P900 to P1,200 pesos price both in online and mall stores.

Now, Asus PH provided us a ZenPower for testing and review. So how did the ZenPower fared in actual charging capacity and speed? Find out the results of our comprehensive test and in-depth review of ZenPower 10,050 mAh.

Design

The ZenPower is a solid power bank with an aluminum external casing wrapped around. Sides are flat out but slightly tapered on its corners. The top area houses a full-sized female type-A USB, microUSB port, power button, and four LED indicators.

In terms of size, the ZenPower is as wide as a standard credit card, weighs around 215g or about 2 compact phones, and with thickness at 22mm. Surely, you could still fit it in any pockets but with a slight bulge.

Efficiency

The 10,050 mAh capacity is the charge rate without losses and it is not a direct substitute when computing your phone’s battery capacity. Our test resulted in a 91% efficiency or 6,480 mAh actual charge rate. It can easily fill up two Zenfone 2 with an extra 15% more.

  • Actual charge capacity – 2 x Zenfone 2 with 3000mAh + extra 15%
  • 91% efficient or 6,480 mAh actual charge rate

Charging speed

Rocking a 2.4A max output current and 5.1V, the ZenPower could easily charge tablets and phones. Charging the Zenfone Selfie with 3000mAh took 2 hours, which is close to the output using the original charger.

Pricing and Verdict

Asus ZenPower is available in online, authorized stores and from Asus PH itself. We haven’t confirmed the exact pricing from Asus, but some legit sellers are posting around P900 SRP.

The Asus ZenPower is the best power bank we reviewed and highly recommendable for anyone looking for an external battery to charge their tablets and phones. It has excellent efficiency, reasonable price, rugged build, and attractive color options.

  1. what happens if you plug the powerbank to itself?
    and how do you determine if the powerbank is legitimate? i bought mine from lazada but i just want to make sure that mine is not fake

    • It’s protected to prevent shorting of circuit, so nothing will happen(afaik). ASUS has not provided details to ensure that your powerbank is the legitimate one, BUT if you bought it in LAZADA(Although Lazada is an official seller of Asus Zenpower Powerbanks, other merchants that also sell in Lazada sell Asus zenpower Powerbanks, too. If you bought it from Lazada, then it is not fake. If from other merchants, then it’s not guaranteed that it’s original).

      One thing that fakes will never be able to copy fromt he original ones IS THE CAPACITY STORAGE. Zenfone 2 with 3000 mAh battery got 215% charge from the powerbank. Check how many mAh your cellphone got, and estimate if it’s near from the value of the example.

  2. How can you know if my zenpower 10050mah was compatible with my phone? The lights will turning on and off while charging and on my phone it was reflecting charging then after 5 seconds it will reflect not charging then charging again. But still the percentage was increased by time to time. I was confused on that if there’s any bad affect on my phone 😟
