Power Practical set to make Pronto battery pack a success with your help
When it comes to the modern day road warrior, he or she certainly packs a rather comprehensive amount of gear. For instance, there is the quintessential smartphone that one simply cannot live without, while it will more often than not be complemented by a tablet device. Apart from that, with smartwatches gaining in popularity as well, it makes perfect sense to pack a slew of the gadgets’ respective chargers whenever one travels, just to make sure that we do not come up short handed during the more crucial moments. Power Practical has looked in the direction of Kickstarter, having launched a campaign for what it deems to be the fastest-charging portable battery pack to date, calling it the Pronto.
With a name like Pronto, it had better live up to its namesake if people are going to invest money in this particular project! Just what kind of portable battery performance do you get out of the Pronto? There will be two models made available, depending on your needs and budget. Firstly, there is the lightweight Pronto 5 that carries a 4,500 mAh capacity (which is enough for three full iPhone 5 charges), followed by the far more heavy-duty Pronto 12 which boasts of a 13,500 mAh capacity, allowing it to deliver up to nine iPhone 5 charges.
Regardless of which particular model that you have decided on, they will be able to charge to full capacity in a matter of just an hour, now how about that for practicality? Apart from that, Power Practical’s creation has been specially designed to feature a virtually indestructible enclosure that is made out of hard-anodized aluminum that is a whole lot more durable, allowing it to withstand anything that Mother Nature throws at it. Of course, this does not mean that it is waterproof, so do take note of that. Both models will arrive with a lightweight cap that has an internal silicone seal, as it helps to protect the ports from water and dirt.
The Pronto 5 and Pronto 12 will be offered at the discounted price of $79 and $99, respectively, for early bird backers.
