MARCH 2023

Cygnett, Australia’s largest digital accessories brand, best known for its reliable, design-driven portable power banks, dominates a recent list of the best mobile power banks in CHOICE magazine’s latest review of the market’s top-performing power banks.


CHOICE is an independent, nonprofit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. The review is available in CHOICE magazine’s March print edition as well as online at


In a comprehensive review of 33 power banks five of Cygnett’s power banks ranked in the top 7 power banks reviewed.


Overall, Cygnett had more power banks earning a score over 80% than any other power bank reviewed and CHOICE’s reviewers make more recommendations for Cygnett power banks than any other power bank brand.


CHOICE tested approximate charge time, approximate portable battery recharge time, the size and weight of the power bank and the usable capacity of each power bank.


The top-ranking Cygnett Power Bank reviewed is the Cygnett ChargeUp Edge+ 12,000 Qi Power Bank that retails on for $129 and earned a score of 85% by CHOICE. (See our new ChargeUp Edge+ 27,000mAh Power Bank here). A breakdown in score includes a 92% performance score, the ability to charge wirelessly and can charge a laptop while the $84.95 Cygnett ChargeUp Boost 3rd Generation 20k Power Bank scored a rating of 84%. Both Power Banks rank in the top four products out of the 33 power banks tested and reviewed and can also charge a Nintendo Switch via a USB-C cable.

“We appreciate the diligent testing and reviewing process that CHOICE undertakes to help consumers make informed purchasing decisions. Having an independent review further cements our commitment to excellence,” says Cygnett CEO, Paul Santoro. “One tip we think consumers will find useful to know is that for safety reasons, power banks are not fully charged at the time of purchase. We encourage customers to anticipate a new power bank to be charged at less than 100% and then once it’s in use it can be charged to the power bank’s full capacity,” explains Santoro.


“From our research, we know that 30% of our customers are repeat buyers to our website and that half of all customers refer a friend to visit Our fast-charging power banks are our fastest growing product range and some of our power banks can also function as a docking station,” adds Santoro.
