IMNEED Mini 3200mAh Lipstick Size Portable External Battery

Following on from the recent Vezon power bank review we have the IMNEED mini power bank.

Rather than a fat power bank the IMNEED mini power bank has taken inspiration from lipstick and made a compact little battery with a single USB output to charge a device.  It’s available in four colours, black, blue, silver and gold.

There are 3 LED status lights and if you press the button a couple of times a white LED comes on, giving you a little torch.

IMNEED Mini Powerbank size

When tested (as you can see in the review video below) the IMNEED battery topped up a Sony Xperia Z1 Compact by about 6% over a 10 minute charging period.  While this may be enough to give you a top up it’s not as fast as other power banks such as the Vezon which increase charge by about 10% over 10 minutes.

Worth noting that to atten the lipstick style the total charge held is relatively small as well, giving you an emergency top up but not something you can use to fill up your phone battery over and over without charging this again. In terms of price there isn’t a massive amount between this or the Vezon 10,400mAh power bank that’ll give you many more charges.

However, what the IMNEED mini power bank does have in it’s favor is that the lower capacity makes this quick to fully charge and a lighter weight.

For those only interested in having something small in their bag in case of an emergency then this could well be for you, however for most people wanting to charge a few items on the go this will likely be too underpowered compared to the competition.
