    Smartphone manufactures are always trying to cram in as much battery life as possible to their products but their efforts cannot keep up with expectations of a generation who like to spend an average of 2.5 hours a day on their smartphones. There are many power banks available in the market which provide much needed juice to your smartphone or tablet battery on the move but none of them have managed to look as good as the QBracelet. The QBracelet, as the name suggests is an aluminium bracelet that houses an 1160mAh power bank. Weighing at approximately 45 grams, it comes in Lightning Connector and microUSB variants for latest iPhone models and Android smartphones respectively. Fashion conscious customers can choose from Polished Silver, Matte Silver, Polished Gold, Brushed Black and Matte Black colour variants in three sizes.

    To replenish your smartphone battery, all you have to do is open the clasp and plug in your smartphone to the micro-USB or Lightning Connector. The best part about the QBracelet is that you can still use the phone when it is charging owing to its small size. The company claims that the power bank in the bracelet can provide 60% charge to an iPhone 5S. The QBracelet charges itself with the help of a microUSB cable provided in the package. The only trouble with this thing of beauty is its price. The QBracelet retails for $99 (5,994 INR) and pre-order customers can get it at a discounted price of $79.99 (4,843 INR). There are similarly priced power banks in the market that have a capacity of 10000mAh or more, so does the stylish exterior justify the price tag?
