Power up with Incipio’s USB-C Universal and USB-C Integrated Power Banks

Incipio is extending its line of external batteries with the new offGRID Turbo and offGRID Turbo+ USB-C universal and USB-C integrated portable power banks. I’ve used previous iterations of the offGRID line They’re durable, easy to use and a great addition to any gear bag. I have no doubt the same will be true with these new offerings.
