The founders Armaan Gandhi, Arzan Irani and Sahej Sethi, have created this device on the cornerstones of portability, convenience and elegance. The XS powercard's design is based on immense research conducted on smartphones and the needs of its users.

Equipped with a 2200 mAh rechargeable battery, up to 32 GB flash storage memory, built-in cables and a highly efficient circuit with a standby time of up to 150 days, the XS powercard is not just a portable charger, it's a lifestyle change at an affordable price. Xyra has chosen to launch the device through Indiegogo, an international crowd funding website, starting at $34 a piece.

"The idea was to evolve the average power bank, and through it, redefine your portable charging experience. We wanted the device to seamlessly exist in your life," Co-Founder and Engineer of Xyra, Arzan Irani, said. "To do this, it was imperative to design a charger that fits into a person's existing patterns of behavior, and so we developed the XS powercard: a smart-charger for your smartphone."

While most portable chargers require you to carry additional accessories, the XS powercard's design embeds both cables as well as a detachable flash drive into the device. This ergonomic design makes the device convenient enough to fit in your wallet, epitomizing portability.

"We chose to launch our product on Indiegogo to meet our capital expenditures as well as fund a major portion of our production, operational and marketing costs," Co-Founder and Finance head of Xyra, Armaan Gandhi, said. "We have our final prototypes fully functional and combat-ready. Xyra is looking to raise $50,000 to kickoff production on a large scale and is offering a discount of up to 35 percent off the future retail price on Indiegogo."

"Our innovation stems from one fundamental belief: make technology work for you, not the other way around" 

The Next Big Thing Is Small  

Price (Indiegogo): Rs. 2099 ($34) and up
