Syska, better known for its LED lighting products, has now entered the power bank arena—with a product that fills an important gap. Its PowerElite QC is arguably the first available in India that is compatible with Qualcomm's QuickCharge technology. This is important because the phone you buy these days will increasingly offer this technology—but you will waste the feature unless your charger or powerbank is also QC-friendly.
The PowerElite QC is a jumbo 10050mAh device, with Lithium Ion cells manufactured by LG. It has two USB charging ports and offers a variety of charging outputs—DC 5V/2.4A, DC 9V/2A and DC 12V/1.5A. This means you can use it not just for phones but other equipment like tablets, music players, speakers and home Wi-Fi routers. It makes very efficient use of a single on-off button—lightly press once to check the power level—indicated by 4 LED lights. Press twice to turn a torch on and off. One USB port supports QuickCharge, the other is for standard charging... the best of both worlds!
It packs a lot of power for its palm-size and 181g weight, and considering its versatility, the asking price of Rs 3,299 is reasonable.
