The design of the Topaz PP-80AR is exquisite and it’s one of the core reasons why you should consider buying the power bank. Most people are used to power banks being ugly, heavy and generally an accessory that you don’t want to carry around, but you have to.
The Topaz PP-80AR power bank is different, it’s beautiful and light. You get a svelte profile, rounded corners and an awesome finish. The power bank is available in three colors, Black, White, Gold and Pink.
The power bank also comes with four Indicator lights at the bottom that provides info about how much battery juice you have left.
The Topaz PP-80AR has one USB port placed strategically at the top of the power bank. The USB port is reversible, meaning that you don’t have to fumble in order for you to find the correct way to connect the power bank to your smartphone.
Most modern power banks come with at least two USB ports, the power bank has one only one. Therefore, it’s kind of a deal breaker, especially if you prefer to charge two devices at once. However, the set-up is okay for someone who wishes to have a power bank just for their smartphone.

It takes you about 2 hours to charge a standard 3000 mAh smartphone battery from 0% to 100% using the Topaz PP-80AR power bank.
The charging speed is average and I would give it a 7/10 rating. I would, however, have preferred if the power bank had a slightly higher charging output rating since fast-charging technology is gradually becoming common place.
The Topaz PP-80AR power bank packaging includes a USB charge cable. The cable is really short and thus of inconvenience especially if you want to use your smartphone while it’s recharging.
However, using the normal USB charge cable that comes with your smartphone sorts out the issue.
