At any cost smartphone batteries won’t be growing at faster rate than our consumption demands. Our Phones have grown from being flashy entertainment centres to hard core productivity tools and thus a lot more power is needed to drive us comfortably through our days. Thankfully there are several good powerbanks available, which aren’t expensive either.
OnePlus Power bank
OnePlus Power bank comes with Moonstone black and silk white finish, just like the OnePlus One. This power bank looks and feels great, but isn’t very compact. Measuring 142.8×72.6×16.2mm it is almost as big as most 5 Inch display phones.
There are 4 LED indicators but no buttons. You can charge two phones simultaneously using two 2.1 mA ports on this portable charger. Out of 10000 mAh capacity, the charger could successfully convert more than 7300 mAh in our initial testing, which is again very good. Using a 2 Ampere charger, you can fully charge it in around 6 hours. You can buy it for only 1300 INR.

We could convert around 7500 mAh from the power bank. The USB cable that comes with the power bank is small in size but very good in quality.
