Surely most, if not all, of you must have googled the specifications of a mobile phone before deciding to buy it. You must have scouted out potential phones and the top deciding factors were most probably the price range and the camera quality. Another significant feature must have been battery power. Nothing sucks more than a quick battery drain-out, no matter how high the other features of the phone are.
Therein comes the Power Bank to save the day! A Power Bank makes sure that no matter where you are and even if no wall chargers are available, you can still charge your phone! Just keep your Power Bank charged beforehand. A typical Power Bank can charge your phone for 1.5-4 times, depending on the capacity of the Power Bank.

Who Needs This Power Bank?
The first thing that needs to be said right away is that this is a high-end Power Bank – the highest of the high, actually – and thus, will also be highly-priced. Therefore, this Power Bank isn't for those who always seek a bargain and try to eek out a moderate quality product with a super low price. On the other hand, if you are among those who want nothing but the best and aren't shy from spending a few hundred INR more, then no other Power Bank will satisfy you more than the Syska Power Pro 200.
Oh, and if you still want a bargain, this product comes in two colors: black and white. The white-colored Power Bank is 300 INR cheaper! So, get the best of both worlds – high quality and reasonable price – by going for this one. If you are on a very low budget, check out these power banks under Rs. 1000!
Why Do We Recommend This Product?
There are quite a few technical details to keep in mind when buying a Power Bank. A top brand on the market that produces high-quality Power Banks is Ambrane. Here we explain some of the general and important features of Power Banks in general:
There is a reason why the battery capacity is included in the name of every Power Bank. Typically, powerful batteries are not actually a prerequisite for a good Power Bank. This is because the higher a battery power is, the bigger and bulkier is the Power Bank. And, trust us, ease of portability is a very important factor for a good Power Bank.
Having said that, high battery capacity is a prerequisite of the Dual USB Ports feature. There are Power Banks with larger battery capacity which can accommodate even more electronic devices. That is why our top recommendation is the Syska Power Pro 200 with its 20,000 mAh battery power.
When we are on the go, we have our phone either in a pocket or in our hand. Now imagine we are also carrying a Power Bank. Do you keep it in a bag? Then you would have to bring it out to charge your phone. Wouldn't it be much more convenient to simply be able to carry the Power Bank in your pocket? Thus, if your Power Bank is bulky and heavy, that's a problem. Unfortunately, this reviewed product is relatively bulky and not very portable.
If you opt for a Power Bank with average quality and high portability, then you might want to check out this Power Bank.
This product scores full marks on usability due to many features: prevention of overcharging and short circuits, Dual USB Ports, and Automatic Hibernation Mode. You will fall in love with using this product. We sure have!
The price of the product is quite high in comparison to others. However, we think that the price is justified when you take a look at the superior features it provides.
Power Banks are normally bland in appearance. You can find some fancily designed ones on the market, but the branded ones are mostly classy and non-flashy. This product's outer appearance is thus bland yet official-looking.
What Are The Features Of This Product?
As the full name of the product says, the Power Bank has a battery capacity of 20,000 mAh! That is a monster number, for sure. To put things into perspective, a typical Android or iPhone with a battery of 4,000 mAh can be charged five times! There's normally a battery discharge which reduces efficiency, so you will get around 4 full charges. Still, that's a very very good deal!
The Power Bank comes with a micro USB cable, a User Manual, and a 6-month Warranty. When doing our reviews, we have found Power Banks with longer Warranty, which means that better Power Banks exist regarding shell life. However, we have tested this product and we feel positive that just because Warranty is for 6 months, its performance will not diminish within that time frame. We feel that if not abused and damaged (it has a tough and durable exterior too, which means it can withstand a few accidental bumps), this product will give a long service for years to come.
What's more, this Power Bank also has the safety feature of preventing overcharging. It is with shame that we admit that we also do this from time to time. We put the phone on charge at night and then wake up at noon and only then do we turn off the charger. Potentially, this is dangerous for any electronic device, and performance permanently declines due to overcharging. We have tested that the Syska 20000 mAh Power Pro 200 Lithium Polymer Power Bank does, in fact, prevent overcharging. Hence, you can stop counting the hours you put your phone on charge and just doze off without worrying about overcharging!
Did we mention that it has not one but TWO USB ports? That's right! You can easily charge two separate devices with this Power Bank. Dual USB Ports only come with large capacity Power Banks. As this product has a 20,000 mAh battery power, it can easily charge two phones at once. This also means that you won't find this convenient feature in most Power Banks which have less battery power.
To conclude, we need to speak more about its ease of us. Though it has a massive 20,000 battery power, you will need to charge it twice or thrice a week if regularly used. Moreover, typical electronic devices, including a Power Bank, loses some of its charge even when left unused. Not this Power Bank, though! Its Automatic Hibernation Mode minimizes power loss and maximizes battery retention. We were extremely impressed with this specific feature.
