[Noisebridge-discuss] Custom power banks - Turnkey manufacturers?

On the most recent Hacker Trip To China, we visited a factory that makes AC power strips.  Many of them have USB connectors, with USB power supplies built in.  They design them, as well as manufacture them.  I don't think they measure any with batteries, though.  But, if you like, I could connect you with that factory.  Lemme know. 

Best,

I'm trying to create a battery pack for a product I've been involved with for eons that has a reasonably durable metal case and uses standard Li-Ion cells.
Common power banks use any number of 18650-type 3.7v Li-Ion cells, a casing around them and a PCB that contains USB connectors plus charging and protection circuitry. These output 5v at 1A-2.1A.
I need a power bank that has a custom PCB and a non-USB output connector that puts out 7.5v at 2A.
Essentially almost al design elements in a normal power bank can be used but I need that higher voltage coming out.

Hello good people,
Does anyone know of turnkey manufacturers for those USB power banks that actually has design resources to make modifications? I need a custom connector and higher-voltage boost stage. I can design the power convertor if they can do the mechanicals and manufacturing.
I've looked into a few outfits on Alibaba and they are all flakes/fronts. IDEO is too custom.
Any suggestions are appreciated!
