A powerbank has really been a useful companion of our devices. It always comes to the rescue when you need to power up your devices when you're on the go (and when you got nowhere to plug your device). As years passes by, powerbank manufacturers have been releasing products with higher capacity. Ekotek's first high capacity powerbank is the Ekopack 9600 (Check out our review). Now, it seems that Ekotek has become more competitive in the powerbank industry as they have also released the stylish 11,000mAh and 13,000mAh Ekopack powerbanks, at a very affordable price.
|Ekotek's Ekopack 13000mAh Review|
Ekotek has never failed us in releasing good looking and quality products. Check out this lovely pink powerbank - the 'girliest' variant! It also comes in black and grey (this one is my favorite variant) color.

What's impressive with Ekotek is that they are very keen to details. Even the packaging has been made beautifully. "It's very Ekotek!" :)

The Ekopack 13000mAh's build is very unique as I have not seen any powerbank shaped like this. One of its edges is curved and the other three are flat. The flat edge could be your base when you want to stand it on a table. The Ekopack 13000mAh is thick but it's still thin for the capacity.

Hands down to its build quality as it feels very durable. It could probably handle minor and light accidental drops. The pink and black variant's texture is a smooth rubber matte while the slate grey (with green) looks like a texture of a stone - it's sandy rough.
The powerbank is not prone to hairline scratches but could possibly have dents when bumped hardly against another object (or when accidentally dropped). So you gotta take care of it. The flat edges of the powerbank is made of plastic with leathery texture that makes it more classy.

On the base edge is where you will see the MicroUSB input, power button and the LED indicators.

On the right edge is where the 2.1A output and 1A output are located.
This styish and high capacity Ekopack 13000mAh powerbank can charge my devices up to 5-6 times full cycle. You can charge two devices at the same time as it has two output ports (one is 2.1A and the other is 1A). For regular charging of devices, the powerbank can last up to 2-3 days. This is perfect for travelling as it can probably survive your 2-3 days trip.
Since it is a high capacity powerbank, charging time is up to 12-15 hours, depending on the type of charger you are using. A 2A charger (recommended charger) would definitely charge it faster.
This powerbank has served me well. It's perfect for people who's always on the go as it can survive number of days before it runs out juice. It could also be a perfect travel buddy because it doesn't weigh heavy.
The Ekopack 13000mAh powerbank is available in all Ekotek Kiosks and has a price tag of Php 1,949.
Thumbs up Ekotek for releasing another interesting product! By the way guys, we're giving this away this coming Valentine's season! It's a perfect gift for your loved ones! :)
