Even as device batteries become more efficient, our constant use of them and the power-hungry apps we employ find us needing to utilize battery packs more and more. Most battery packs resemble either a small paver stone or are a battery case type giving us more heft and bulk in a pocket. Enter the Rokform BackPack backup battery.
The Rokform BackPack is immediately recognizable as a Rokform device as it uses the same styling and rugged design as the phone cases from the company. And one of the best things about the new BackPack backup battery is that it employs the same Rokform Mounting System and integrated magnetic mount as those device cases. This means you can twist lock the BackPack directly to your phone, which in turn locks to your dash mount, handlebar mount, or non-ferrous metal surface.
The Rokform BackPack is durable, weather resistant, features 4,250 mAh of battery power and can charge two devices at once. A lightning cable is integrated into the device for your Apple smartphone and the BackPack comes with micro USB cable as well as having a USB outlet on the bottom of its case for a secondary device. Recharging of the BackPack is via the included micro USB cable flipped around.
The unit weighs just five ounce so is ideal for taking along on any camping or backpacking trip or snapping onto the handlebar of your mountain bike or motorcycle. It is built to take the shocks the rugged outdoors or tough daily urban lifestyles can throw at it. It is covered by a one-year limited warranty and will run you $99.99 at www.Rokform.com. You can order it in any color as long as it is gray and black with orange cables and outlet covers.
The Rokform BackPack backup battery is a smart power unit for the smart devices that are now interwoven into our daily lifestyles. Its light weight, compact size, and unique mounting options make it the ideal companion for your iOS or Android and its dual charging function make it perfect for an Apple/Samsung split household like mine.
