Many of our readers come from India and to address the specific needs of Indian readers, we have compared, analyzed, and reviewed powerbanks available in the Indian market to select the six best powerbanks in India. A strange thing about Indian powerbank market is that there is are in fact just two good quality powerbank brands available in the country (Xiaomi and Philips). We feel that other brands mostly offer products with inconsistent build quality and/or misleading specs as well as poor service.
Popular US and global powerbank brands such as Abker and RAVPower do not have official presence in India and the Anker/RavPower products you get in India are extremely highly priced. There are also a huge number of fake or 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 six best powerbanks available in India:
