Asus ZenPower Powerbanks Original Models : Actual Unit Photos and Key Features

Yes, you read the title of this post correctly. Taiwanese electronics company Asus has already entered the business of creating and distributing powerbanks for mobile devices (much like Xiaomi from mainland China). And I'm sure that this will bring a smile to the faces of many hardcore Asus smartphone, tablet, and laptop fans across the world.

During the South East Asia launch of Asus ZenFone 2 held in Jakarta, Indonesia last April 21, 2015, I was fortunate to have been given a chance to play with all of the company's upcoming ZenPower models that are set to be released later this year.

Asus has yet to disclose the exact launch date and pricing information of these devices -- but I've taken the liberty of posting my exclusive 'in the flesh' photos of the units just to give you an idea of what the original powerbanks look like as well as to introduce to you some of their key features. Trust that I'll update this entry as soon as I get more official information about these accessories.
