Bengaluru, March 4 : Running out of smartphone battery may soon cease to be an anxiety-triggering moment as Ramani Iyer, who co-founded Justdial, has created a new venture called “Spykke” to provide a smartphone power bank rental service.
Smartphone users with low battery can simply walk to any Spykke partner outlet and rent a power bank by scanning the QR code on it.
Bengaluru-headquartered Spykke said that its power banks are easy to use and come equipped with all Micro-USB, Type C, and Apple-certified lightning cables.
Once used, the power banks can then be returned to the nearest Spykke station.
According to terms and conditions of the service, return of the power bank is the user’s responsibility and “Spykke shall be entitled to take any means necessary to retrieve the power bank hardware charges from you if a power bank is not returned or returned in a damaged condition…” The company said that in just six months, it has achieved the widest smartphone power bank rental network in India, and is currently live across 8,000 locations in 11 cities throughout India.
