Technology Training Mobile Tech Education Why educate yourself on Mobile Tech? 1. Tech is growing extremely fast. 2. Products might look the same, but can perform significantly differently. 3. The more confident you are, the more likely you will be to push this category to your clients.

Lithium-Ion Batteries Lithium-Polymer Batteries Pros … • Standard Size, therefore cheaper • Up to 2600mah only • Short lead times due to ample supply Pros … • Can cut cells to fit custom sizes • Any capacity available • Heat resistant • Less likely to explode • Not many fakes in market • Lighter than Lithium-Ion Cons • Common, so plenty of fake in market • Not very heat resistant • Heavy due to metal casing of liquid compounds • Can explode • (mostly our two entry-level models) Cons • More expensive • (Most of our other models) What’s most important when assessing power banks? 1. Battery Capacity – – How many times will it charge my phone before I have to recharge it? (see table) – Will it charge my tablet? 2. Cycle Life of Battery – – How many times will your power bank charge before its cycle life is over? – How can you tell that yours won’t last just a few months ? <50 cycles. 3. Is the promised capacity real? – – 4. 5. 6. Have you purchased the power bank from someone reputable? Is there a warranty? How fast does the power bank charge your phone/tablet? How quickly does it take your power bank take to charge when flat? Always choose a safe product over a cheap product!!!

Discharge Time: Indicates the average time in which a charger can drain all of its energy to charge up an average mobile device. Note: Speed varies depending on which mobile device you are charging hence the greater than or equal to symbols are used to represent a variable figure. Recharge Time: Indicates the time required for the power bank to fully recharge itself from a USB power source (such as a PC USB port or a USB wall plug adaptor) 2. Audio Important to look out for before purchasing an audio device: Earphones and headphones: Universal audio jacks – 3.5mm Is it compatible with most audio devices? Speakers: Do you need batteries or does it include a rechargeable battery? Does it support playback from most audio devices? Universal audio Jacks – 3.5mm Is it a Bluetooth speaker? 2. iFidelity 2.
