If you could choose only one battery pack for your next long haul flight, the mophie powerstation AC should probably be it. Mophie’s powerstation AC is a high-capacity external battery with AC power as well as USB-C PD fast charging for laptops, tablets, smartphones. You heard that right, this is a battery pack that’s powerful enough to charge all your devices, and your laptop too.
For all the battery nerds out there, we’re going to delve into its specs. The powerstation AC packs in a 22,000 mAh battery that can provide up to 15 hours of extra battery life for an Apple MacBook or up to 100 hours of smartphone battery life. But what makes it particularly special is that it offers 100W AC output which allows you to charge devices that you normally could only charge by plugging into a wall outlet, such as laptops and camera batteries. The inclusion of Priority+ Charging provides pass-through power to devices connected to the USB-A port first before the powerstation AC battery starts to recharge. For USB-C devices, the dedicated USB-C port features 30W USB-PD charging technology.
On the design front, the powerstation AC is wrapped in a premium fabric for a good grip, and protection against scratches – so there really isn’t a need for a carrying case.
The mophie powerstation AC retails for $199.95; We’ll have a full review up soon.
