Incase IconConnected Power Sleeve for MacBook Pro: Protection and Charging

I love my 2017 13” MacBook Pro. Most of the time it’s docked to my BenQ PD2710QC 27” monitor. When I take it with me, however, I want to know it will be ready to use whenever I need it. Incase’s new IconConnected Power Sleeve for MacBook Pro solves this thanks to its integrated power supply and USB-C charging capabilities.

First and foremost, the IconConnected Power Sleeve is about protection. Based on the Incase ICON sleeve with TENSAERLITE, it offers 360-degree protection when you are transporting your MacBook Pro. What makes this particular sleeve different is that it integrates a 14,000mAh battery with a USB-C port. The provided cable lets you connect your laptop to the battery and top it off as you move from one location to another. The IconConnected Power Sleeve effectively doubles your laptop’s capacity since the battery is large enough to provide more than one full charge. Also, the sleeve includes a USB-A port. That means you can connect your favorite cable and also use the large battery to charge iPhones and other USB-enabled devices.

The Incase IconConnected Power Sleeve for MacBook Pro will be available for both the 13” and 15” MacBook Pro when it is released in Q3 of 2018. When it arrives, it will have an MSRP of $199.95. Check out all of Incase’s offerings here.
