Seven years ago, questions like, “Do you have a charger for this?” were common requests made by hostelites from my college who relied on their friends for such handy gadgets. But we never heard, “Do you have a power bank?” However, thanks to our power-guzzling smartphones, the power bank has become a reality.
And soon, one can easily imagine a mom telling her game-crazy child before leaving for school/college, “Like it or not, but you need your power bank.” Keeping that in mind, we scouted for a powerbank that was good for quick-boost and also fell within a budget of Rs 1,000. This is when we found the STK Cuboid Power Bank.
Though, the power back-up is not huge, by smartphone standards, it can easily save you from pulling your hair during those desperate moments when you pray the red exclamation mark to last just a few more minutes. Weighing around 75 gm, the powerbank is powered by a 2600mAh battery (only for phones that require up to 1.0A input) and can be recharged in four hours.
