This portable charger can handle most of your gadgets, and even jumpstart your car.
River Bank, the brainchild of US-China company EcoFlow, is probably something a lot of on-the-go people need right now.
This is not just your regular run-of-the-mill portable charger, it’s a heavy-duty one that has a modular approach to suit different needs. It holds its charge for more than a year, and it is possible to take on airplanes.
The Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) requires portable chargers or battery packs to have a limit of 100Wh capacity. EcoFlow believes that they were able to find a way around this by breaking the charge down into modules.
River Bank’s main pack includes two USB outlets, two USB-C outlets and Qi wireless charging. For those who want to add more functions, two additional modules can be added. One for AC ports and another to jump-start cars. These two modules can also be stacked unto the main module to increase capacity or recharge it.
With the AC port module, virtually any device with a plug can be charged such as drones, cameras and laptops.
The River Bank portable charger’s main module is priced at $199. If you want the additional modules, you have to fork out an additional $99 for each one. However, you won’t be able to get this on the market just yet.
Currently, the heavy-duty portable charger is already in production but will ship out to backers from Indiegogo in August. More information are available here.
