On December 17, 2013, OnePlus sent out a press release announcing the launch of the company and today is the date when it was first founded and celebrating it with the launch on new products. Expected to see the smaller version of OnePlus One Mini, but it didn’t debut, rather introduced a portable extended battery pack called it the OnePlus Power Bank.
Equipped with a massive 10,000 mAh battery, the Power Bank is not only designed for OnePlus One phone, but has got two USB ports for plugging in any charging cable. Both of which can simultaneously used, and the size of the internal battery means it even has enough juice to recharge most tablets. And the minimalist design looks great in the pictures.
