Asus Zen Power

Business Traveller India lists items that should feature on your travel checklist for style and ease

A seasoned traveller will always emphasise that packing light is packing smart. Carrying along a chunk of your wardrobe is not ideal when you are constantly on the move. This is when travel accessories come in handy. Some help to make an effortless style statement, others add convenience to the trip, and a few do both. Below is a list of essentials worth considering when jet-setting.


A power bank is a handy accessory for all perennial travellers. Designed with an aluminium casing, the Asus Zen Power is a lightweight portable charger at 215gm. The credit card-sized charger has a 10050mAh battery, which can charge an iPhone 6 plus two times in a day. The extra protection bumper cover adds a stylistic touch to the product. It is offered in five colours: gold, silver, black, pink and blue. asus.com
