RAVPower history: from humble beginnings to world leader in less than a decade
Belonging to the Sunvalley group of companies – born between China and USA – the origin of the RAVPower brand is, in their own words, “humble”: we must go back to 2011 when it debuted on Amazon, receiving its first order on August 18 of the same year.
Since that August 18, a long time has passed, during which RAVPower has not stopped growing, as they explain in the timeline they offer us on their official website.
Notable achievements include:
Its expansion into other Amazon stores throughout 2012, the registration of its own “iSmart” smart charging technology in 2015, as well as $5.8 million in sales that same year.
Although this manufacturer was initially created to manufacture replacement batteries for cell phones and computers, it quickly extended its line to include chargers, portable chargers and cell phone accessories, such as battery cases.
Since 2016, RAVPower began a process of developing charging technologies that started with the improvement of the brand’s own iSmart -version 2.0-, as well as becoming a pioneer brand of new charging technologies: both wireless charging (HyperAir) and the Power Delivery protocol.
Hace poco, RAVPower atravesó un proceso de “lavado de cara” en el que actualizó casi toda su línea de power banks así como su imagen corporativa, de hecho, renovó su logotipo y elaboró una versión “mini” del mismo de cara a su uso en redes sociales, aunque no se descarta verle en alguna parte del packaging de alguno de sus productos:
Recently, RAVPower went through a rebranding process in which it updated almost its entire line of power banks as well as its corporate image, in fact, renewed its logo and developed a “mini” version of it for use in social networks, although it is also present in the packaging of some of its products:
Versatility, variety and innovation: the keys to RAVPower’s success
It is impossible to talk about RAVPower without stopping at the wide range of power banks that it is capable of launching on the market; ranging from the entry range to offer pioneering products, at the forefront of technology, as in the case of its new hybrid charger (charger + power bank) or its FileHub portable router.
On the other hand, the classic 5000 mAh cylindrical models are still available as well as power banks that do not feature fast charging technologies; in any case, it can be stated that the entire RAVPower range is of high quality, as well as offering users a wide variety of both capacities and technologies to choose from.
This is precisely what defines the brand: to develop each of its power banks individually, in detail, thinking of each power bank as a user with specific needs.
That is why the designs of RAVPower portable chargers, although they have a common identity, are different from each other, without being limited to being a larger or smaller version of each other -as can happen with other manufacturers such as Omars-.
As mentioned above, RAVPower is a pioneer in Power Delivery fast charging technology as well as in the manufacture of new gadgets that incorporate power banks such as the aforementioned FileHub, a router/wireless hard disk/power bank that could be a milestone for the power bank market (are we moving towards smart portable chargers?).
