mophie delivers portable USB-C charging solution

mophie-powerstationmophie is a very well known name when it comes to mobile accessories, especially smartphones that need a power boost in your daily life. The company has since rolled out its fair share of smartphone cases that come with an integrated power source, allowing you to prolong usage of your device while obtaining protection at the same time, without having to head to the nearest power outlet in the middle of the day. This time around, mophie has something slightly different although it has everything to do with power — the USB-C XXL power station. The mophie USB-C XXL power station is a high capacity universal battery which has been specially designed to charge the MacBook (2015), MacBook Pro (2016), iPad, iPhone and other compatible mobile devices.

 Boasting of a single USB-C and one more USB-A output charge port, this power station will feature a whopping 19,500mAh battery. This translates to more than a single full charge to a MacBook, and will arrive in soft-touch fabric so that users will be able to have a premium look and feel without cramping Apple’s product styling cues.

The USB-C port will feature USB-PD technology, enabling it to charge USB-C laptops at rapid charging rates. We are looking at up to 30 Watts, as well as the ability to accept high-speed charging input even when it is hooked up to USB-PD chargers. As for the remaining features of the mophie USB-C XXL power station, they include an additional USB-A output port 5V/2.4A, a role switch that is controlled by a status button (USB-C input/USB output), the USB-C port with a default function being set to output charge, LEDs that display the direction of charge which will confirm the switch position, a Cypress CCG2 chipset. And pass-through charging USB-C to USB-A. The asking price for the mophie USB-C XXL power station stands at $149.95 and makes for the perfect addition to any road warrior’s arsenal of gizmos.
