Design

Design of the Q1 Power Bank is superb. Everything in package arrived at top quality and there is nothing much to elaborate. The Power bank comes in two main colors: Gray and Silver.

The housing of the product received is mostly composed of Aluminum made a profile, coated in gray color, which gives it a very nice looking metallic look. Alternately company also offers an additional color selection on large quantity orders.

Looking at both top and bottom views of the unit: On both sides of the unit you have two plastic enclosures with high quality glossy surfaces. On the TOP one you have all the main interfaces such as: USB Charging port, Micro USB input port changing port, Push button Power button, including a LED Power Indicator for displaying the status of the battery.

Final Words

The Q1 Power Bank is a defiantly great product that combines high quality design and quick charge technology, that is especially useful for Qualcomm hardware based phone users.

According to ORICO Company, Their battery capacity ranges between 10001 mAh~15000 mAh. I didn’t check charging cycles, if its possible to charge an iPhone 3 or 4 times, because there are many variables and any test will be not accurate, unless done in a lab.

That being said, Information about the product including prices can be found in ORICO AliExpress store Here.
