For better experience we strongly recommend that you buy a 2 Ampere Wall charger if it isn’t bundled with the box.

  1. Samurai Power Bank looks nice and is effective. Affordable Costs. It is a great product. By the way it is way ahead in trustworthiness

  2. Xiaomi 10400 mah. Powerbank is the best and also best priced…unfortunately Xiaomi no longer imports these…i snagged 2 from flipkart when they first came..matchless stuff…all Xiaomi power banks on eBay are likely duplicate.

  3. I WANT LIGHT WEIGHT , FAST CHARGING AND SMALL SIZE POWER BANK FOR MY SAMSUNG MODEL Note 3 NEO . PLEASE SUGGEST ME . –
    MAHENDRA SHAH

    • Xiaomi Mi Power bank could be a nice option. It come in 2 version so you can select based on your Budget and need basis ; 10400 mAh and 5200 mAh –> Can be ordered from Flipkart for Rs.999 (only the 10400 mAh version is available now).

      Huawei Honor Powerbank 13000 mAh can be your 2nd option –> Can be ordered from Flipkart for Rs.1,399.

    • Never ever buy any power bank from any of the outlet.. Like snapdeal, flipcart, shop clues, and many others offerings these products in very fancy range.. Maxx delivers the defective products.. I faced this issue 3 times.. Better option is buy from reputed shop directly..

  4. I m confused buying powerbank , my budget is 2000 rs , what should I go for it , I want 2 ports , digital display , n built in cable ! Plz suggest me , answer me by mail

    • One of the power bank in this list has digital display, you can buy asus power bank but they wont have digital display.

  5. Hi,

    MI power banks are not available on Flipkart. I found the PNY BE-740 10400mAH Power Bank. Is it good? As i cannot see it in the list.

    Please reply to the earliest.

  6. I have bought Power Bank from Graviti last month online from the website. The best advantage is, it is quite light (220g) in weight to carry anywhere and 4 LED indicators which indicates battery level.

    Some other specifications are –

    1. Dual USB
    2. Size – 130 X 69.3 X 17.5mm
    3. 10000mAh battery

  7. Hi.. Please suggest the best power bank for my Samsung Grand 2 Mobile. it should be light weighted and also has 2 ports if possible..
