Zendure: an “endure” brand with a “zen” mind
According to their official website, Zendure is the combination of the words “zen” with “endure”, the first term refers to tranquility or calm while the second to hardness, as its power banks are characterized by their ultra-resistant design to shocks and falls.
The brand was founded by Tom Haflinger and Bryan Liu in the United States. In the beginning, Liu was in charge of the design and the more “technical” aspects of the portable chargers while Haflinger was responsible for marketing, advertising and web design.
Zendure’s growth was fast: in July 2013 the company was founded, and in September of the same year they had already managed to raise more than $200,000 on Kickstarter. In the following video you can see the presentation of the brand and its products:
After the successful launch on Kickstarter, the company opened its Amazon store in 2014, managing to expand to Europe in September of the same year, which was a big step in a short time.
In addition, Zendure has shown that users believe in its product: just look at the fundraising achieved in its subsequent campaigns on the platform.
From then on, they continued with more recognitions and participations in prestigious events:
- Titan Airways recommended the Zendure A5 model as the “ideal power bank” to take on airplanes.
- Participated in the IFA in Berlin (2017).
- Won the Good Design Award with the Zendure Passport (2017).
- Participated in CES Las Vegas (2018).
The keys to Zendure’s success: elegance, toughness, quality… what more could you ask for?
Although Zendure is a brand specialized in charging accessories, one of the points they make sure to reinforce is the quality control of the batteries they use in their power banks.
In fact, such is the importance of Zendure that it always guarantees the efficiency of over 80% as well as more than 500 charge/discharge cycles on its models.
In addition, it is impossible not to talk about the differentiating feature in Zendure power banks: their build quality; you should know that ALL models are made of polycarbonate with ABS which makes them -almost- indestructible.
There are also other functions to which Zendure pays particular attention:
- Pass-Through Charging Technology
- Auto Power On
- Extended standby: up to 6 months can maintain its charge level.
In conclusion, the Zendure brand offers us portable chargers with high-quality construction, an elegant design as well as cutting-edge technologies, since almost all its lines of power banks have fast charging protocols.
