The Zendure Supermini USB C Portable Charger Review
The Zendure Supermini 10000mAh USB C portable charger is compatible with a range of devices and has enough power to recharge the average smartphone up to three times with one single charge. Its generous 10000mAh capacity is very practical, but what makes this power bank a must-have, is the USB C port with PD that can charge your devices in no time.
The Zendure Supermini 10000mAh uses a USB Type C port to charge many different types of devices such as smartphones, tablets, or gaming consoles. Rated at a maximum power of 18 Wh, it’s more powerful than a regular power bank but it’s not powerful enough to charge laptops with.
The device is designed with one port, which can be an inconvenience. It would have been great to have at least another port that would enable dual charging. From my point of view, this is maybe the biggest shortcoming of this otherwise great power bank.
On the other hand, it comes with blazing-fast recharging times. It takes just under 3 hours to get the SuperMini back to 100%. This is achieved with the help of the USB type C port and the Power Delivery charging technology.
Last but not least, it’s equipped with X-Charge Mode, which enables it to transition to a low-power charging mode to support boosting low-power devices, such as smartwatches, wireless earbuds, and more. In order to activate it, you need to double-press the power button.
The Zendure Supermini measures 3.1 x 2.2 x 1 inch, making it about the size of a credit card, only quite a lot ticker. With a weight of 6.32 ounces, it remains lightweight, though not the most lightweight device on the market. Given its small length, you may expect it to be lighter, though its thickness and durable structure contribute to this weight. However, with these measurements, you could easily store it in your purse and connect it to your smartphone to charge your device on the go. This feature makes the Zendure ideal for train commutes, festival-goers, or hikers.
Rated 36.4Wh, you’ll have no issues transporting this device on a plane. Plus, with its generous capacity, it’s great for long-haul flights so you can keep your phone fully charged. The picture above was taken by me during one of my international flights. The Supermini proved to be a great flying companion.
Look and Feel
The Zendure Supermini 10000mAh USB C portable charger is available in a striking blue ombre color, which is a refreshing change from the dark grey or black portable chargers we’re all used to seeing. This might be off-putting to those in a professional setting searching for a discrete charger, though it’s an exciting design for creative individuals or youngsters. Plus, you’re less likely to lose it!
Its shiny exterior may require some maintenance to prevent it from developing scratch marks. For some, this might not be ideal. You can avoid this by purchasing a case.
The power button is located on the front and blends into its design for a subtle, which prevents a bulky button from impacting its overall aesthetic. The brand’s name is showcased on the lower front in contrasting white.
Durability and Build Quality
When researching this power bank, I was unable to find details about safety features, such as short circuit or overheating prevention. Generally, most power banks come with such features and I’m sure that the SuperMini also has them. But Zendure seems to have left out these details on the product box and/or the user manual where they’re usually detailed. However, your purchase includes a two-year warranty should you have issues with your device.
My Experience with the Zendure Supermini 10000mAh
This has been one of my go-to power banks for quite some time now. This says a lot about its overall quality since I do have quite a lot of different choices when it comes to picking which power bank I take with me.
1st Year Update
I have been actively using the product for over one year. It has proven to be a worthy power bank that is there when you need it and it can be counted upon to charge a smartphone about two times. In terms of performance, there weren’t any issues with it and it always performed as expected. The only drawback is that the paint is easily scratchable. This means wear-and-tear marks will easily show up if you don’t take good care of it. You could prevent this from happening by using a power bank travel pouch for example.

Still Going Strong
It’s been now 3+ years since I first started using the Zendure SuperMini. I regard it as one of the best travel companions because of its compact size for the capacity it offers. It can easily top up my phone two times which is more than enough for most of the trips I take. As you can see in the photo, I also take it on flights. To be honest, I really love its design and I believe it goes along very well with planes and airports.
The only minus I can think of for this power bank is that it develops wear and tear marks pretty easily. However, to me, these just add more character to it and I don’t really mind them at all. But I can see how some people might find an issue with it. On the positive side, I’m really surprised that after so much time its capacity doesn’t seem to have decreased at all, which tends to happen with all batteries after a while.
