With the promotion and application of new technologies such as 5G network, IoT technology, and intelligent terminals, the shared power bank industry has ushered in a new round of high-speed growth. According to data from Shangpu Consulting, the market size of shared power banks in China reached 19.37 billion yuan in 2023, a year-on-year increase of 29.6%. Meituan, as the representative of Internet+ life service sharing economy and the leading brand in the shared power bank industry, accounts for about 18% of the national market in the shared power bank industry.
As a long-time partner of Meituan, Top-link is committed to promoting innovation in its products to better meet the needs of end consumers. In 2023, the R&D engineers of Top-link received feedback from the Meituan Power Bank team, stating that some businesses have placed their power banks in window positions and often receive rainwater. After rainwater accumulates on the original structural connectors, it is easy to cause problems such as poor contact and even safety hazards. The Meituan project team of Top-link quickly responded to customer needs, designed and produced various DOE validation samples, passed strict online and offline testing, and ultimately solved the customer’s water accumulation problem, enabling customers to quickly introduce new products into mass production.
No effort, no harvest. It is precisely because we always adhere to the customer-centric concept that we have also gained recognition from our customers. Top-link has been awarded the “2023 Technology Innovation Award” by Meituan Power Bank. Behind this heavy honor, it is inseparable from the support of our customers, the company’s commitment to technological innovation, and the ultimate craftsmanship spirit of our R&D engineers.
