Griffin rolls out their toughest power bank yet

survivor-power-bankWith many of us sporting more than a single smartphone these days, it goes without saying that there are way too many different kinds of chargers to choose from. However, this does not mean that you need to throw up your hands in the air in despair before you travel as you pack, since there are always solutions for emergencies. Griffin Technology is one of them, having come up with award-winning and thoughtfully designed mobile accessories, and they have just announced their highly anticipated Survivor Power Bank. In fact, the Survivor Power Bank happens to be the very the first phone and tablet backup battery pack that is not only durable, but also reliable enough to be known as Survivor.

This does not mean it will be able to provide power for the entire village, but more for the highly connected individual as it delivers peace of mind to users on-the-go through delivering its fair share of portable power whenever required. In order to be worthy of its name, it has been tested to Military Standard 810G, ensuring that it can handle up to 6.6 foot drop protection as well as boast of impact resistant defense from falls on hard surfaces such as concrete. The rechargeable battery cells are also protected from drops and spills with shatterproof polycarbonate and textured, abrasion-resistant silicone to deliver reliable power. Surely this is way hardier than ordinary power banks?

Apart from that, the Survivor Power Bank also sports an IP66 rating that helps to protect it against water damage and dust particles. There is a self-sealing flap that ensures the battery’s charge and power ports and built-in LED emergency flashlight will remain clean and dry at all times. Sporting a reliable 10,050 mAh charging capacity for USB-powered devices, it will be accompanied by an LED fuel gauge that ensures users are in-the-know when the power bank is full or needs to be juiced up. The asking price for the Survivor Power Bank Rugged Backup Battery stands at $59.99 a pop.
