Tesla is famous for making Electric Cars, but now it seems that they want to branch out. The company has now launched a new power bank to keep your Android and iOS devices charged up on the go. It is simply called the ‘Tesla Powerbank’ and is available for purchase on the company’s official store at $45 (Approximately Rs. 2,900).

The Tesla Power Bank comes with a USB, Micro-USB, Lightning, and detachable connections. It comes with a modest battery capacity of 3,350mAh. Interestingly, it uses a single 18650 cell, the same cell that powers the Model S and Model X cars. The company said, this Powerbank is inspired by their supercharger monument at the Tesla Design Studio.
