Just like Mr Watson power's Sherlock Holmes' thought process, a power bank powers the smartphone. Together they’re a powerful combination that will keep  you connected for hours, so that you don’t have to cut an important call or pause your game midway. Even phones with great batteries hit a dipping point and that's when a power bank is a convenient accessory to keep around. You can charge your phone with a power bank while you’re still lounging comfortably on your couch instead of staying plugged to wall port for the next two hours. If you’re buying a new smartphone, you might as well buy this handy gadget too. Here are some popular phones under Rs 15,000 and a power bank to go along with it.

Motorola Moto G5s

However, you can further boost this phone’s life by adding a power bank to it.
