Now, you can rent power bank

Chennai: Ramani Iyer, who co-founded and led several businesses including Justdial, has now launched ‘Spykke’, a smartphone power bank rental service.

In six months, Spykke is currently live across 8,000 locations in 11 cities throughout India.

Talking about his new venture, Iyer says, “I am optimistic about the opportunities and trends in India. Three big trends are providing strong tailwinds to this industry.India is very open to adopting digital / technology solutions. Indian youth are increasingly adopting a ‘sharing economy’. A fast-growing smartphone consumer base. And now, with the doubling of time spent on phone usage in the last year, the pressure on smartphone batteries has never been higher. This is where Spykke comes in. Using Spykke, no one has to run out of battery ever, That is why, within the last six months, we have rapidly spread across 11 cities in India, with a network of 3500 partners and 8000 plus charging stations.”
