Another game changer product from Onio- Home Inverter gets a new meaning - Tribal Italia 
Onio's strength in 'new category creation' and creating product that change the contours of the existing market, came to the fore with Tribal Italia Home Inverter (Emergency Power Supply).

This product is a need of every home in emerging countries, where electricity supply is infrequent. It is usually a unfriendly electrical gadget stored away from living room.

Amara Raja, the business group that makes the famous Amaron brand of batteries, has launched this as a flagship product of the new consumer brand they unveiled - TRIBAL.
