What voltage is required for a router

Also, power banks are now on the market, which can output different voltages — in addition to the standard 5 volts, there are also 9 and 12 volts.

They are more expensive, but in this case it will be enough to purchase only an adapter cable from USB to a 5.5/2.5 mm plug.

How to connect a Wi-Fi router to a power bank: five simple steps

Step 1: Check the capacity of the power bank

The first step in connecting a Wi-Fi router to a power bank is to check its capacity. Power banks come in different capacities, from 2000 mAh to 50 000 mAh. The higher the capacity, the longer it can power your Wi-Fi router. Therefore, make sure that your power bank has enough charge to power the Wi-Fi router.

Step 2: Choose the right cables

To connect the Wi-Fi router to the power bank, you will need the appropriate cables. Typically, your Wi-Fi router is sold with a power adapter that plugs into an outlet. However, to connect it to the power bank, you will need a cable that can be connected to the power port of the router and the output port of the power bank.

Step 3: Connect the cables

< p>After choosing the appropriate cables, connect one end to the output port of the power bank, and the other — to the power port of your Wi-Fi router. Make sure the cables are securely connected to both devices.

Step 4: Turn on the power bank and Wi-Fi router

After connecting the cables, turn on the power bank, then turn on the Wi-Fi router. The Wi-Fi router should turn on and start broadcasting the Wi-Fi signal. You can connect your devices to the Wi-Fi signal and start working on the Internet.

Step 5: Control the operation of the Power Bank and Wi-Fi router

Finally, monitor the status of the power bank and Wi-Fi router. Most power banks have a built-in indicator that shows how much charge is left. Make sure that the power bank charge is enough to power your Wi-Fi router for the required time. Also, keep an eye on your Wi-Fi router's uptime and turn off all devices you're not using to save battery power.

So, connecting your Wi-Fi router to a power bank – it's a fairly simple process. Now you will be able to stay in touch, even during power outages.

How long is a power bank for a router

The power bank can work with the router from two to 20 hours, depending on the capacity of the power bank for the router, rating, power consumption of the router and the number of devices connected to it.

Power bank for a router – it is a battery with built-in electronic control and connectors to which you connect the router and media converter in the event of a power outage; it automatically turns on the device and continues to do so continuously until the power is turned on again. Most router power bank models display the remaining time on the front panel to help you save important documents.

The amount of time the power bank will be able to power the router depends on several factors, including the power bank's battery capacity, the power consumption of the router, the power bank's rating, and the number of devices you connect to the power bank at the same time. Router power banks have different hardware depending on the manufacturer, which differentiates them from model to model when it comes to functionality and ratings. Wi-Fi routers, which are solid-state devices, consume little power. On average, routers consume from 2 to 20 W, most often 6 W per router. As you can see, not all routers will consume the same amount of energy, some more, others less. The number of devices connected to the power bank is also an important factor.

How long does the router work from the power bank

  • Power bank for 10500 mAh  can ensure the operation of the router for 3-4 hours;
  • power bank for 21000 mAh ensures the comfortable operation of the router < strong>from 6 to 10 hours;
  • a power bank for a router for 42000 mAh can ensure the operation of the same router 16 hours;
  • a power bank with a capacity of 70,000 mAh ensures the operation of the router during the day and also allows you to charge smartphones and tablets.
