I too bought a Vivo power bank to check what is inside the power bank. The power bank price was 500 rupees and at last after bargaining, he gave me 120 rupees.

The Vivo power bank power was 35000 mah, 3 USB ports, and a digital display. After charging 50 percent power bank stopped working. The weight of the power bank was 260 grams.

Fake power banks and cable

I purchased another 10,000 mah Mi power bank at 200 rupees near the Latur bus stand. The batteries used in fake power banks are collected from garbage or old market. This power bank battery power is only 1000 to 1500 mah that can charge only 25 percent of your phone.

Inside both power banks

Mi original battery can charge 4 times (400 percent ) of your phone. A fake power bank gives sometimes less or more volt and amp output which is bad for your mobiles. Original power bank outputs are accurate.

Romoos power bank

Romoss company has been around since 2006, and they are still going strong today. They have a wide range of products, from simple and affordable battery packs to more advanced models that offer features such as fast charging and protection from over-charging.

Fake power banks are on sale online and many people are buying them not just because of the name but because of their low price. Many people don’t realize that these power banks often don’t work and are only meant to look like a genuine charger.

Physically, how do you know if a power bank is a fake?

A genuine power bank is significantly heavier than a counterfeit power bank. You can tell it’s a knockoff Romoss power bank because it’s so light and feels so cheap.

The light from the original Romoss power bank is usually not so bright that it interferes with each other. Depending on the capacity of the battery bank, charging should be neither too fast nor too slow.

Any power bank with blurred or badly printed text or icons is most likely a fake. You can check this by looking at the power bank itself. The fact that a fake Romoss power bank drains quickly and can’t even charge a single phone is one of the most evident signs of a rip-off.
