When new technology items come along it is often a question how long they will last. With USB flash drives they have never stopped being a sort after item. It was always thought that with the accent of cloud based storage that the need for physical storage like flash drives and hard drives would diminished. Fortunately that is not the case and flash drives still continue to be a great promotional item. They are inexpensive and great for printing logos and people still need them to transfer data which makes them practical.
So when power banks came along the question was how long they would last. Power banks and promotional power banks have been around for a few yours now. While they were slow to take off in the beginning they have become more of a staple technology item for people. Nowadays you can see people all around carrying power banks either in their pockets or bags or even attached to their smart phones. Even though smart phones are coming with bigger and better batteries they still need additional juice to get them through the day.
With smart phones they started off using G2 and G3 which allowed for some additional apps and uses. The progression to G4 increased this even more and the sudden increased download speeds meant that users were now able to utilise GPS and other features on their phones which they previously couldn’t. Now with the pending arrival of G5 the explosion of apps for ones smart phone is set to expand even further. All of this means that people will require even more energy for the phones to keep them going through the day.
All this brings us the the longevity of power banks. Far from being a short term fad they are set to continue to be an important accessory for time to come. What this means from the promotional products industry is that power banks will continue to be a popular item when it comes to promotional campaigns. And the beauty of promotional power banks is that they appeal to a large demographic. Unlike flash drive which were more for tech savvy people, power banks are for everyone. No matter how young or old you are you probably have a smart phone and if you have a smart phone you will need some extra juice at sometime or another.
