Mophie's new battery pack offers 22000mAh of capacity

Mophie's new battery pack offers 22000mAh of capacity”

Bad puns aside, this battery pack is a great product for power users and technophiles alike.

Keep the power on without having to rush to find a wall outlet, thanks to the newly announced mophie Powerstation AC, an external battery with high-capacity and an AC power option. The new battery pack will also be useful for other laptops, tablets, and other devices that do not charge up via some type of USB cable. Like the Mophie Powerstation USB-C XXL, announced in August past year, there's a USB Type-C port. That delivers up to 30W USB-PD charging.

With a maximum AC output of 110V and 100W (at 60Hz), the things you can power with it is not limited to phones and laptops, but we expect these two categories of products to be the primary target for a mobile charging session. Be warned, though, a high-power device will quickly run through even that 22,000 mAh: Mophie says that a 90W laptop, connected via AC, will get roughly an hour of runtime. Most of these battery packs have USB-A, USB Type C, and microUSB ports for charging mobile devices. There's also a USB Type-A port that can be used to simultaneously charge another device.

Like the Powerstation USB-C XXL there's a fabric wrap around the black casing, which helps avoid scratches in your bag. As you can guess by its name, the electric output is powerful enough to charge a laptop and more! It looks like there's a small fan that will presumably be active when the AC output is working, given the cooling requirements of DC to AC conversion.

At ~$200, the Mophie Powerstation does not exhibit a cheap $/Wh ratio, but it does provide a somewhat rare service, especially for professionals, which can justify its pricing. It's priced at $199.95.
