The rainy season is equally welcoming as that of the summer season in Baguio City. This is because the weather brings about cooler temperature which many tourists and residents love. However, what is not fun during the rainy season is the onset of typhoons and monsoon rains. It does not only dampen your spirit in exploring the beauty of Baguio it also poses several dangers like landslides and fallen trees. What happens during typhoons, of course, is that there is a great risk of power being out. It may be due to fallen trees that hit power lines or because power transformers exploding. Whatever the reason is, when the power goes out, it is really a burden especially for someone working online.
I still remember being unable to communicate to the “outside” world whenever the power is out during a typhoon. Access to any electronic gadget is also scarce especially if your gadgets are all out of “juice” so to speak. Fortunately, unlike a decade ago, we can be more prepared with the help of technology. Among the benefit of technology is to give us the ability to power our gadgets on the go, portable charging became very popular several years ago until now because of the fact that there is really a demand for this.
What am I talking about? Power banks of course! I still remember going to SM Baguio after a typhoon and power banks are being sold like hotcakes! At that time owning a power bank is a means of “digital” survival, however as the demand grows the need for efficient power banks also followed.
The demand for efficient power bank grew because of the fact that many “fake” power banks are already out in the market and such power banks provide for more danger than benefits.
