Zendure SuperMini is a compact battery that is smaller in size than a credit card but can still support quick charging on Apple’s latest iPhones. We have reviewed Zendure batteries in the past, most recently the massive SuperTank.
The new SuperMini is ultra-compact. It adopts the same design that made its other battery packs popular with ridges running from top to bottom and uses only a single button to control the battery and monitor the remaining charge via a series of LEDs.
SuperMini is a 10,000mAh battery pack that arrives with a footprint smaller than a credit card and a width of only an inch. For comparison, Anker’s smallest 10,000mAh battery pack is larger in both the width and the height, measuring 3.6-inch by 2.3-inch versus the SuperMini’s 3.1-inch by 2.2-inch dimensions.
However, this small size does not mean that it is not powerful.
There are two outputs on SuperMini —one USB-C and the other USB-A. The ports are located on opposite sides of the battery pack which can be nice if you are using the USB-C port to charge the battery and the USB-A to charge a device out of the other side.
The Type-C port is able of 18W and boosts Power Delivery whereas the USB-A port is also capable of 18W if using QuickCharge 3.
This speed is very beneficial for both iPhones as well as iPads. That means it will support Fast Charge on the iPhone, rendering 50% charge in only 30 minutes. Since iPhone 11 Pro arrives with a USB-C Lightning cable, we presume many more users will desire these faster 18W chargers.
Zendure neutralizes this issue with X-Charge mode. By double-tapping the button, the LEDs will start to flash indicating that it is in a special low-power draw mode. Here we were able to charge our Apple Watch and MW07 headphones without any issue.
