Power Bank Inspections

Pre-shipment inspection to verify power bank quality and performance

Power banks, or battery packs, are intended to improve a user’s experience with their devices by allowing them to charge and continue to use their devices while on the go. Ensuring proper operability and performance of products through pre-shipment inspection is therefore essential for power bank manufacturers to meet customer expectations.

From durable, solar-powered power banks to customized, low-end promotional tools, power banks can vary in their capabilities, size and voltages. And many power bank manufacturers make claims on their product’s charging capabilities to differentiate themselves in a crowded market. When performed by experienced professionals, power bank inspection helps you verify that your products deliver on your marketing claims and promises.

Key Areas of Quality Control Inspection for Power Banks

  • Visual inspection of all components, including product dimensions, internal wiring, printed circuit board (PCB), batteries, charging ports, logos and branding information, USB cables and LED light power and charging indicators
  • Check performance of charging capabilities, including charging and discharging test of the power bank itself, charging test of applicable devices and simultaneous charging test where applicable
  • Measure electronic function, including output voltage, power input and input current against rated specifications
  • On-site testing of built-in intelligent safety protections to avoid over-voltage, over-charge, over-current, over-heat, short-circuit and over-discharge issues
  • Compliance to mandatory FCC rating labeling of input and output DC voltage and current and battery capacity, as well as rub tests to ensure label is still legible after use
  • Packaging inspection, including checks of retail boxes and hang tags, the barcode scan test, the carton drop test and compliance to Lithium-ion and Lithium-polymer battery shipping regulations
