To celebrate the anniversary of its One smartphone, OnePlus announced the launch of a new accessory – the OnePlus Power Bank.
It's exactly what you'd expect: a portable battery. Now you're probably thinking "Gee guys, is this really newsworthy?", but let us stop you there. This one ticks all the boxes that a power bank should: it's pretty, it's compact, it has a high capacity, and it's cheap. The design even matches that of your OnePlus One phone, if that's your sort of thing.
The OnePlus Power Bank will be available in Silk White or Sandstone Black, and it has two female USB A ports for charging, each of which can push up to 2 Amps. You can charge the Power Bank with a mini-USB cable, just like your smartphone (unless you have an iPhone). With a capacity of 10,000 mAh, it might take a painful 5.5 hours to charge to full capacity, but it will recharge your OnePlus One phone three times over.
Can't find that button you press to check the power level? Instead of a button, you need to shake the device gently to light up the battery indicator, meaning the device has no physical switches at all.
Built-in safety features include short circuit protection, overcharging protection, overheating protection, and resistance against electrostatic discharge.
The OnePlus Power Bank will be available "soon" and will cost just $14.99.
