Toreto, a popular gadget brand, is known for a variety of products ranging from speakers to powerbanks and smartwatches to fusion products such as chargers with built-in Bluetooth speakers. Most of its products are targeted at the young — students, entrepreneurs and executives — who frequently travel for work or leisure.

Recently, I happened to use Toreto’s Unicharge, a new-generation travel charger with four different input connector types — European or Indian, Australian, British and American. The value of this accessory will be truly appreciated by a person who travels to all corners of the globe. Power outlets have different shapes in different parts of the world and you may need an adapter to connect your home power plugs to the different outlets in the region of the world you are travelling in. Unicharge reminded me of my travails in Germany two years ago when I forgot to pack an adaptor and had to literally beg for a device so that I could charge my smartphone.

Apart from being a universal adaptor, this compact and lightweight accessory can charge multiple gadgets — smartphone, powerbank, digital camera, Bluetooth headphone — through its four USB charging ports. It supports 100-240 volts range of input voltage and allows fast charging of all your devices at one go. It’s really convenient if you have to travel one point to another constantly, without the opportunity to plug your charger into a wall socket for a long time.

Trilogy, the power bank launched by the company, is a smart and stylish product you can easily slip into your pocket. Its inbuilt safety system protects the device from overcharging, high temperature and short circuits.

With a battery capacity of 12,000 mAh, I was able to charge all four devices together at lightning speed. I was also able to share charging with two other people at the airport and make new friends, who were grateful that they didn’t have to go looking for a charging port and risk leaving their seats in the crowded airport lounge.

The key feature of this powerbank is that it has two in-built charging cables with Type C, micro and lightning connectors. I was told that Toreto has recently launched Dashpro, a powerbank with 20,000 mAH capacity, capable of pumping juice into multiple devices at a faster speed.

Rapid charger 24 is a smart car mobile charger that comes with two USB charging ports so you can easily power up to two devices simultaneously. It ensures a balanced power supply from both the charging ports. Its compact design makes it easy to carry with you easily. The elegant design helps it stand out on the dash board. The company also has another car charger (Rapid charger 21) with a unique 3-in-1 wire so that three occupants of the car can get their devices charged at the same time.

Founded in 2013, Toreto has indeed come a long way by innovating products that combine cutting-edge technology and sleek design.
