One of a traveler's biggest nightmares is a drained battery. That is why, a power bank is one of the essential things I always bring whenever I travel. An extra power pack for my smartphone, action camera or other device is definitely a must-have travel accessory wherever I go.

Just recently, ASUS Philippines sent me one of their newest power banks, the ASUS ZenPower Slim. A super-thin, super-stylish power bank, the ASUS ZenPower Slim is packed with 3000 mAh of power and weighs only 81 grams at 115mm x 71mm x 8.3mm dimensions. More to that, the ASUS ZenPower Slim is not just for power; it also has a built-in LED torch that shines a beam of bright light wherever you need it. Cool noh?!

The ASUS ZenPower Slim is a good travel companion for day tours or if you want to bring a power bank that you can easily slip into your pocket. But for a heavy user like me, I would still prefer a power bank with more than 10,000 mAh of extra power juice for my mobile phone and action camera.

ASUS ZenPower Slim Power Bank

So, whenever you travel, be sure to always have a fully-charged power bank with you; especially if it's going to be on a remote beach or an island where there is no source of electricity.
