Zendure SuperMini

Zendure makes our current favorite battery pack and charger, but sometimes you need something a bit smaller. The SuperMini is a tiny battery pack that has a footprint less than a credit card.

Even though it is small, it still has that eye-catching Zendure design, a huge 10,000 mAh capacity, and even 18W USB-C output. Couple that with a USB-C Lightning cable to fast charge an iPhone or iPad.

You can pick up the SuperMini now for $34.

Other changes include the return of the popular trigger from the first generation, USB-C, automatic rotation between vertical and horizontal orientations, and support for Active Track -- DJI's object tracking system.

It is available now for $119 by itself, or $139 bundled with a tripod and carrying case. Stay tuned for our full review soon.

    Just picked up one of the Zendure batteries. I actually already have Anker’s equivalent battery, the 10000 PD. But when my wife is trying to shove it in a wristlet every bit of size savings helps and this is almost an inch and a half shorter while being only .2 inches wider. I’ll likely put the Anker on eBay or Craigslist if the Zendure works well.

    It does have a downside though compared to the Anker. The max output is 18w. I don’t know if that means you can only charge one device at a time or if it means if you use both ports each will only get 9w. The Anker can output 28w, 18w to the USB-C and 10w to the USB-A, at the same time. I think the size savings is probably worth the trade off though.

    I really hope that DJI as made a major turnaround as regards customer care and service. My first experience with them was the original Osmo stabilizer. Arrived defective. Took over a month of phone calls to get it replaced. The replacement was defective. It took over a month to get a refund. Of course all of this entailed endless calls to them during which they made promise after promise, and only ONCE did they manage to get things right. Too shell-shocked to ever give them another. chance.

    The Zendure supertank Kickstarter was not managed well at all.  Poor communication, received a backer notice my shipment was received by the shipper, tracking notice goes to some obscure Chinese shipping company with no detail and no updates going into week 2+, might be halfway to Mars by now.  Meanwhile the same product is available on Amazon and B&H.  Kind of defeats the purpose when you can order retail and get it quicker than someone who funded the product 6 months ago.  Hard pass.

    Doesn’t surprise me. I’ve backed three Kickstarter campaigns and two of these were scams.
