Flipkart is touting these power banks as Make in India products that cater to the needs of the Indians. Majority of these Billion Power Banks provide up to 3 USB ports, which can be used to charge not just mobiles, but Bluetooth headsets and smartwatches. Each of these ports also supports 5V/2.1A charging, a feature typically available in higher-priced power banks. Flipkart claims that these power banks charge twice as fast as regular 5V/1A ones.

Further, the company says, these batteries lose less than three to four percent charge when idle for one month, and have up to 500 charge/discharge cycles.
In addition, the Billion power banks offer seven-way safety features, including undervoltage and overvoltage protection not just while discharging, but while charging the power bank as well. These features have claimingly been built keeping in mind voltage fluctuations in many Indian homes that shorten the life of electronics. They also have in-built temperature protection, which protects the power bank from overheating while charging your devices, and short-circuit protection, which cuts off charging/discharging to protect the device.
