Most chargers in the Indian market are Chinesemade and look the same. But the Ultra'Go mini power station from Calibre Style is different. This compact square has the build quality of a SSD drive and can easily slide into your pocket. There is a notification light that blinks when the device is charging. The USB port can be used for output while the micro USB port is for input, both covered by a magnetic flap. The good thing about this is that it vibrates to show how much charge it has. Four times means a full charge, while three means 75 per cent and so on.
