OnePlus, as promised, has launched its Power Bank in India. It is now available to buy via exclusive online partner Amazon.
Called the OnePlus Power Bank, it features a 10000mAh capacity, and will be available in Silk White and Sandstone Black colours, just like the OnePlus One smartphones themselves. It is now available to buy at Rs. 1,399.
The OnePlus Power Bank bears two USB ports for simultaneous charging, and takes roughly 5.5 hours to charge itself. It has dimensions 142.8×72.6×16.2mm, and weighs 220 grams. The Power Bank sports battery indicator LEDs while also offering safety features to prevent overcharging and overheating. The box includes the OnePlus Power Bank and a USB cable.
To recall, OnePlus unveiled the 10000mAh Power Bank in December, priced at $14.99 (roughly Rs. 950), but only made it available in March.
The newly launched OnePlus Power Bank featuring 10000mAh battery will be up against the likes of Xiaomi’s Mi 10400 mAh Power Bank that is available at a lower price of Rs. 999 and the Asus ZenPower portable charger featuring 10050mAh capacity at Rs. 1,499.
Last month, OnePlus India Head Vikas Agarwal on the official forum had confirmed the 10000mAh Power Bank would be available in India. Apart from the Power Bank, Agarwal also confirmed that the Bamboo Covers for the One smartphone would be available in India soon. At the time of writing, the OnePlus One Bamboo Covers were not available on Amazon India.
OnePlus last week announced that all legal proceedings with Micromax in India were resolved and the cases were withdrawn through mutual consent. This would mean that all OnePlus One smartphone users will receive Cyanogen OS OTA (over-the-air) updates the same as other markets.
The Chinese company last month announced that the ‘2014 flagship killer’ smartphone would be available without invites ‘forever’. The announcement also applied to India.
