Thanks to the ex­tra-large touch dis­plays, Full HD screens, mul­ti­ple cores and con­stant con­nec­tiv­ity, our smart­phones and tablets now need large bat­ter­ies. But they still die on you when you need the de­vice the most. This is why it makes sense for all smart­phone users to in­vest in a por­ta­ble mo­bile power bank to recharge your de­vice on the go.

Most charg­ers in the In­dian mar­ket are Chi­nese-made and look the same. But the Ul­tra'Go mini power sta­tion from Cal­i­bre Style is very dif­fer­ent. This com­pact square has the build qual­ity of a SSD drive and can eas­ily slide into you jeans pocket. Beau­ti­ful curves and the metal­lic fin­ish give it a pre­mium feel, while not mak- ing it heavy.

There is a no­ti­fi­ca­tion light that blinks when the de­vice is charg­ing. The USB port can be used for out­put while mi­cro USB port is for in­put, both cov­ered by a mag­netic flap.

The good thing about this one is that it vi­brates to show how much charge it has. Four times means a full charge, while three in­di­cated 75 per cent and so on. Once fully charged, the 3500 mAh bat­tery on the Ul­tra'Go could charge our iPhone 4 twice with still some power left in it. This means it can give a full charge to a Samsung Galaxy S4 or can par­tially charge a tablet.

In the box is a USB ca­ble for charg­ing and a car­ry­ing case.

BAG IT OR JUNK IT: Very stylish de­vice with good power backup.
