Veger power banks may be a fairly new entrant in the local tech scene but it has already established itself as a successful battery storage device brand across Asia.

In particular, it is a well-loved brand in Indonesia, Thailand, Dubai, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, and Myanmar. Currently, Veger power banks are also among the hottest-selling electronic gadgets in local online shopping sites in the Philippines. Understandably so, Veger offers some of the most affordable yet high-quality portable chargers in the market today.

Veger Power Banks: my reliable partner for powering up my travel gadgets


    Searching for a reliable power bank brand for my travel gadgets


    For the longest time, I have been searching for a reliable power bank brand that can keep up with my needs.

    On a daily basis, I use my smartphone heavily for updating my social media channels and for keeping in touch with my family, thus a power bank is a must so that I can power up my phone whenever and wherever I need to. When I am outside, I also bring my old but trusty digital compact camera so that I can take high-quality snapshots. A good power bank with long-lasting power is a definite necessity when my gadgets run low on batteries.

    I own several power banks but, admittedly, the biggest issue for me is the ability to pack power that lasts until the end of the day as well as durability. I have some power bank brands that drain only after a few uses. Some pack good power but are already dead after just a few months or even weeks. My current most reliable charger is actually one that was given to me by a bank as a gift from last Christmas. It's not something that I like to bring around and show to my friends though because I find the bank's branding a bit off.

    My personal experience with Veger power banks


    When I recently received a package from Veger, I was more than excited to try the power banks and see how they measure up to my daily usage. I hope to also be able to finally say that I have finally found the power bank brand that I can stick to for the long-term.

    The three Veger power bank variants that I got were the following: the VP-1015 (10,000 mAh capacity), VP-1048 (10,000 mAh capacity), and VP-0506 (5,000 mAh capacity). After opening the individual packages, l was quite impressed with how well-designed the power banks were. They looked well-built, sleek, and absolutely presentable.

    Aside from dimension, weight, material, and power capacity, the main difference between the three chargers is the number of ports.

    The Veger VP-1048 and VP-0506 models both have three ports located at the topmost portion of the units. One is an incoming micro-USB port for charging the unit, and two outgoing ports that can be used for charging two devices (like a phone or tablet) simultaneously.

    The Veger VP-1015 model, on the other hand, has four ports: two (2) incoming (lightning cable and micro-USB) charging ports and two (2) outgoing ports.

    Aside from the actual chargers, each package comes with one (1) Micro USB cable, one (1) iPhone adapter, a user manual, and a warranty card. The Veger VP-1048 and VP-0506 chargers can accept power from a source of up to 18.5W while the VP-1015 can accept power of up to 37W.

    I tested each unit and I could say that the products met my expectations based, of course, on the capacity of each charger. I charged the units to their full capacity before testing each one. By the way, another thing that I liked about Veger power banks is that they charge fast. I charged them upon waking up at 5:00 AM and were ready by the time we left for work before 8:00 AM.

    On my first day of testing, I tried out the Veger VP-1048 10,000 mAh variant. I used it solely for charging my phone throughout the day at the office. I charged my phone thrice and had about 13 percent by the time I got home. My wife used the remaining power to charge her phone and it gave her about 80% power.

    What’s also good about the VP-1048 charger is that it is equipped with a LED indicator so that you can check the level of power that it still has. This is actually my favorite model because it is small, it felt solid and substantial, and it looked like it can withstand a few drops here and there.

    Product information
    Model: VP-1048
    Micro USB Input: 5V/2.0A
    Battery Voltage: 3.7V 37Wh
    USB Output 1: 5V/2.0A IQ
    USB Output 2: 5V/2.0A IQ
    Price: Php599 at LAZADA

    On my second day, I brought the Veger VP-0506 5,000 mAh variant with me. I really like the design of this charger – it was slim and had a matte and rubbery finish that added a bit of a grip to it. Having only half the capacity of my first test unit, it was understandable that it did not perform quite as well. I was only able to fully charge my phone once during the morning and about 60% in the early afternoon. By mid-afternoon, the battery pack already needed a top up. Well, having a 5,000 mAh capacity, I did not really expect too much from it.

    USB Output 2: 5V/2A

    Meanwhile, the last unit that I tested was the Veger VP-1015 10,000 mAh variant. Among the three units, this is the biggest in terms of dimensions and also the heaviest because it is an all-metal device. Having a 10,000 mAh capacity, its performance is almost the same as that of the VP-1048 variant. I used it solely for charging my phone for the entire day and it performed pretty well. Since this portable charger is quite heavy, I would suggest using this, say, in the office or when you are taking a leisurely stroll in the mall.

    The verdict


    All in all, I was extremely satisfied with the performance of my Veger power banks. They held up to my expectations really well and I am confident that they would not disappoint me in our future family travels.

    Among the three variants that I have, I would recommend the VP-1048 10,000 mAh for everyday usage or even if you are outside for an extended period of time. It is small enough to slip in your pocket, it is light, it fits in your palm, and it will not disappoint you in terms of performance.

    If you are staying at home or in the office, you might also want to consider the Veger VP-1015 10,000 mAh or the lightweight Veger VP-0506 5,000 mAh pack.

    I know it is too early to tell but I think Veger is the perfect brand that marries affordability, reliability, and durability. I will update this post to provide you feedback on Veger’s sturdiness.
