April2 2018: If chargers can be made wireless by Qi technology, why not powerbanks?
Hong Kong based Toreto recently brought its Wireless power bank, Zest Pro to India.
This is a 10,000 mAh Lithium-Polymer battery that lets you charge your Qi-enabled phones or tablets by just placing them on the power bank.
At the asking price of Rs 2999 ( same as the Belkin charger), I can see it making sense to those who currently don't have a Qi-ready phone but may get one in future, because it sports two of the usual USB charging ports as well.
A nice cross over device!
