Kraftwerk, in German, means Power Station. I don't think they are going to get sued for that.

Apple means a fruit as well :D

Yes. But I don't think a musical band is going to sue a technology company for using their b(r)and name.

Extra: In 1982, Kraftwerk were working on a new album initially name Technicolor, but later changed to Technipop due to trademark issues. :)) (Source: Wikipedia)

Xiaomi 10400 is not sufficient for me. When I charge my one plus one while using and charge Samsung s2 twice will drain it to zero.

I might preorder one. I want to check whether they will detect the money later( I mean before shipping) and not now. When I backed leap motion they detect my money when shipping so have to read the terms first

Welcome to the future.

im not very convinced by this concept
it needs gas and you have to purchase gas cartridges
its a risk as gas is flammable and it certainly wont be allowed at airports etc where they dont allow lighters etc
even if they have written it will be allowed on airplanes, certain airlines and airports still impose restrictions on regular powerbanks itself
its certainly great for use in places where electricity is a problem though
pricing is $ 89 whereas a similiar capacity Mi Powerbank costs 1k(11 charges vs 8-9 charges -iPhone as reference)
though Mi 10400 mah powerbank does take quite a while to recharge(3 secs vs 10 hours on 1A/5 hours on 2A)

We can import the device with empty cartridges and refill them locally like cigarette lighters. I hope that is the way the device is designed.

I don't think that cigarette lighter fluid is the fuel in this case, they are talking about LPG and I'm sure the device will require pure LPG, as pollutants may spoil the device.

That won't be easily available in India. [STRIKE]And you cannot side load gas into it. [/STRIKE] The gas is loaded into the device from the cartridges, so you have to load the gas into it. You'll need LPG, but the pure variant I think.

You may have to purchase gas cartridges to operate if you can't get gas here, shipping those to India will be a nightmare as flammable items are usually confiscated by Indian customs office.
