Sistema Shyam TeleServices Ltd (SSTL), which provides telecom services under the MTS brand, plans to launch a smart-device called Mblaze Power Wi-Fi, which can act both as a battery charger and a Wi-Fi dongle-cum-router.

Mblaze Power Wi-Fi will be powered by a 5,200 mAh battery that can fully charge a smartphone up to 3 times and has the capacity to provide hi-speed internet to six devices simultaneously. 

“SSTL will innovate to meet data demands in India.  The company plans to offer the product in post-paid format at Rs. 2999 and pre-paid at `3499,” Leonid Musatov, chief marketing & sales officer, MTS India, told Hindustan Times.

The device will seek to address the issue of significantly reduced battery back-up of smartphones when they are constantly kept connected to data-services, such as 3-G.

The device runs on the MTS 3GPlus network and is claimed to deliver speeds upto 14.7Mbps (Megabytes per second).

With media sharing capabilities it will allow users to connect through Wi-Fi to share documents, songs, videos and pictures etc. Users can also store up to 32 GB data on the device using the micro-SD memory card slot.
