The PopBabies Portable Blender and NutriBullet Pro 900W are two personal blenders with distinct power sources. While the cordless design of the PopBabies may offer convenience, especially for on-the-go use, it ultimately pales in comparison to the performance of the corded NutriBullet Pro.

The NutriBullet Pro's heavy-duty motor and solid construction can effortlessly blend tough ingredients, resulting in silky-smooth drinks every time. This blender can even grind whole ice cubes into fine particles in seconds, making it an ideal choice for those who enjoy smoothies with ice-cream-like texture. 

On the other hand, the PopBabies had to faced] significant challenges in processing all of our ingredients, including almonds, dried berries, leafy greens, and frozen fruits. Although its mobility is a notable feature, the inadequate motor’s power and subpar blade design make it a limited option for blending only soft fruits and simple fruity work-out treats.

Pros & Cons

  • The cordless design allows for blending on-the-go. 
  • It is pretty useful when it comes to making small batches of baby food and fresh fruit smoothies.
  • The battery is easy to charge.
  • It is very easy to assemble and use. 
  • Stainless steel extractor blades are tough enough to power through even solid ingredients like ice cubes.
  • BPA-free plastic cups are durable and dishwasher safe. 
  • Hands-free operation offers superior convenience 
  • Motor base is very stable.
  • It’s inadequate for blending tough ingredients like frozen fruits and raw nuts. 
  • The cup’s small capacity limits the quantity of ingredients.
  • Food must be cut into very small pieces before blending.
  • The low cost of the blender is reflected in its flimsy construction.
  • The cup’s small opening makes it messy to add ingredients.
  • The need to shake the blender during operation
  • It's difficult to clean the blades’ undersides.
