December 14 2015: We have reviewed many power banks on this page but never one with such a radical, innovative look and feel -- and yes, it is designed, developed and manufactured in India by a 4-year Mumbai-based startup, Elixier Tech after crowd funding at Indiegogo
ET Stone looks like a smart phone with an adjustable stand --and weighs about the same. One entire face is taken up by a bank of solar cells, though you can't see them, for the black film on top. But face to the sun or to bright light and a tiny red bulb lights up to tell you the power bank is charging. A full charge could take more than 15 hours, so you have the faster option of charging from a laptop or PC with a USB cable provided ( or from mains if you provide an adapter). Usefully the ET Stone lets you charge and discharge at the same time -- ie while you are charging the power bank through one USB port, you can use a second port to charge your phone, tablet or music player.
Other thoughtful additions are a 3-intensity LED lamp which can also double as an SOS flasher and an LED torch. Also included is a fixture for mounting the power bank on a car window.
The whole thing is a desi marvel of ergonomic design which might make what is basically a 3100 mAh power bank worth the asking price of Rs 3999. It is available direct from the makers
