PNY BE-740 10400 mAh Power Bank InDepth Review

1.Usage

Before buying any power bank you need to analyse your usage.You should clearly know the sole purpose of you to buy a power bank .Analysis should be done at 3 stages :

What devices do you have?

You need to list out what devices you will use the power bank with.Do you only want your smartphone to be charged or your tablet to be charged.So you don’t end up buying a 4000 mAh power  bank for charging your 6000 mAh powered tablets.Talking about PNY BE-740 10400 mAh Power Bank it has enough capacity to handle most smartphones and tablets.So no worries there.

How many full charges do you want?

The second big question is how many times you want your device to charged .For example, you want to charge Samsung Galaxy S6 thrice you clearly need a power bank more than 9000 mAh.You should also keep in mind in most power bank you can use only 75% of total power capacity.So a 13000 mAh power bank is as good as a 10,000 mAh power bank.

Pro Tip

The PNY BE-740 10400 mAh Power Bank has enough capacity to charge most smartphones and tablets.It can easily full charge a 3,000 mAh phone two and a half time and a 4,000 mAh Tablet twice.So if you need to charge your device more than once you should definitely check the PNY Power Bank.

2.Power Output

The second thing which is very critical that at what rate the power bank gives its output.Most new power banks give 2.1 Amps power output up to 2.4 Amps.This very important because you don’t want your phone to take ages to charge.Most new smartphones need at least 2.0 Amps Output power rated  charger to be charged.

PNY_BE-740_Power_Bank

The PNY BE-740 10400 mAh Power Bank comes with two output ports one giving 1 Amp output and other giving 2 Amp Power output.This is a good thing if you charge one device at a time .If are looking to charge more than one device you should definitely skip the PNY Power Bank.This is because 1 Amps is too low for all new smartphones released after 2014.

Comparing with other top power banks we found that:

Ambrane P1310 Power Bank(#1)- 2 Output Ports 1 A/2.1 A – Buy on Flipkart | Buy on Amazon

Intex IT-PB11K 11000 mAh Power Bank(#2)- 3 Ports, 2 DC 5V 2.1A/ DC 5V 1A – Buy on Flipkart | Buy on Amazon

3.Portability

So now let’s discuss about portability .Portability is also important because at the end of the day you are using a portable charger.The product dimensions measure at 14 x 2.5 x 5.1 cm.The shape of the power bank is a kidney bean shaped section.You won’t  find this shape on any other power bank.

The weight of the PNY BE-740 10400 mAh Power Bank is fairly low at 236g .I would rate the power bank a 8 out of 10 for the portability.On comparing the weight of another power bank we found :-

Asus ABTU005 10050mAH Zen Power Bank (#6)- 212g  – Buy on Flipkart | Buy on Amazon

4.Number of Output Ports

Most power banks have 1-3 output ports .The number becomes critical only if you will use a number of devices together .If that’s not a case it should not matter.The PNY BE-740 10400 mAh Power Bank has 2 output ports with one almost unusable with the poor output.

Comparing other popular power banks we found that :-
