Some of our readers come from India and the best power banks available in the US/Canada/Europe are often not available in India. To address the specific needs of Indian readers, we have compared, analyzed, and reviewed power banks available in the Indian market to select six best power banks in India. A strange thing about Indian power bank market is that there are just three good quality power bank brands available in the country (Xiaomi, RealMe and Samsung). We feel that other brands mostly offer products with inconsistent build quality and/or misleading specs as well as poor service.
Power banks from popular US and global power bank brands such as Anker and RAVPower are extremely highly priced in India. There are also a huge number of fake, faulty, or used Anker products also being sold in India. We highly recommend Indian customers to buy Anker/RAVPower products from reputed sites only (we recommend Amazon.in) and choose only the products/sellers whose sales are marked as “Amazon-fulfilled”.
Here is our pick of the five best power banks available in India:
