Electric auto maker Tesla has released a power bank that can charge Android phone or iPhone on the go.

This device uses an 18650 single cell with charging capacity of 3,350 mAh that's also seen in its Model X and S electronic cars, reported by Engadget.com on Saturday.

Naturally, both products are overpriced compared to other battery packs on the market, but it might make a great stocking filler for the Tesla addict in your family.

The $45 Powerbank is designed and inspired after Tesla's supercharger monument at the Tesla Design Studio.

The Tesla Powerbank comes with USB, Micro-USB, Apple Lightning and detachable connections, to be able to charge a variety of devices. The device which measures 108 x 30.5 x23.3 mm has is housed in a cylindrical body.

As for now, who all re looking forward to get their hands on the new Tesla's power-bank, there's no chance having one, as on the company's website the portable battery is been listed as sold out.

Though this isn't a life-sized unit, as we recently saw when one Tesla owner chose to build a Supercharger for their garage, it's nonetheless fun to have a working miniature version of it sitting on ones desktop.

Last week, Tesla announced a brand new version of its Roadster sports auto, which is capable of reaching 60mph, from a standing start, in just 1.9-seconds. The truck has a mile range of 500.
