‘Power Aid’, an unique product to charge any Mobile Phone on the go, was launched Friday. This product, for which a patent was filed, was invented by Amam Arun, a Mechanical Engineering Graduate from the city.
He claimed that his invention was in response to the great need of all his friends and batchmates, who frequently would say that their mobile battery had drained out. His inspiration came from his girl colleague, who had said that her parents were extremely worried when she came late from college one day and were not able to reach her as her phone battery had drained out.
This set Amam’s mind on the road to solve this simple, but important issue and he successfully produced his first prototype in December last year. Now, seven months later, he has worked out all the issues and today, he formally launched the product in the name of ‘Power Aid’. The startup was registered with NASSCOM and a patent has been filed for the technology.
Talking to reporters, Amam Arun said Power Aid is not just effective, but also cost effective. A single piece costs less than Rs 400. It charges the mobile/devices on the go, When there was no current in house, power aid attached on the bike will come to the rescue, it Charge devices with maximum efficiency and two devices could be charged simultaneously. He clarified that it was not a power bank.
“Power Aid will be very useful for bikers, bike taxis, delivery, courier guys, sales representatives, service engineers, leisure travellers, traffic policemen/Policemen on patrol etc”, he added.
