Deal Of The Day: Power Vault 18000mAh Portable Battery Pack For $29

redesign_1764_PowerVaultBattery_MF1

18,000 mAh is a lot. Consider that your iPhone 6 has a 1,810 mAh battery, so the Power Vault 18000mAh Portable Battery Pack would be able to charge it almost 10 times over before it needs its own top up. That’s a heck of a lot of electricity to carry around in a 6″ × 3″x .4″ package (yes, not even half an inch thick). Better yet, it’s got two USB ports, so you can juice up two devices at once. One of the ports outputs 1A, while the other kicks out 2.1A. And all this in a $29,99 package? It’s practically a steal!

What about if it was wallet-sized though? The TravelCard iOS Lightning Wallet-Size Charger is the size of a credit card, and 3/16 inch thick.

Plan V Uses 9V Batteries To Charge Your Phone

Plan-V-Failsafe

You may not know it, but there’s likely a drawer somewhere in your home where you keep all kinds of odds and ends that you need around the house. Screws, butterfly fasteners, IKEA wrenches, a hammer, and probably a couple 9V batteries for your smoke detector. Well it turns out if you get the Plan V, they’ll have another potential use: charging your phone. Plan V is a tiny dongle that takes a 9V battery and uses its power to charge your mobile device. It’s great if the power is out for an extended period and you really need to charge it. Or if you’re out somewhere and are desperate for some more talk time. It’s small enough to serve as a keychain, and costs all of $12… if it gets made. It’s a Kickstarter at the moment, and until they reach their funding goal they’re only making a Micro-USB version. They’re still far from the goal so nothing is sets in stone, but you can help them out with a pledge if this looks like something you’d use.

Deal Of The Day: 152 Duracell Batteries For $60

redesign_duracel_mf

If you’ve ever stopped by a convenience store on the way home to buy just a pair of AA batteries, you’ll know just what a racket that is. Costing as much as $5-$6 a pair, these things can get ridiculously expensive if not bought at the right time and place. Like now. You’re looking at a kit of 100 AA and 52 AAA Duracell batteries, and they’re going for $59.99. That works out to around 34 cents a piece, rather than the $2-$3 they can sometimes cost. The batteries are good until 2019, so it’s not like you’re buying old, unsold stuff.

Ampy Turns a 30 Minute Jog Session Into 3 Hours Of Battery Life

ampy

Harnessing kinetic energy in order to power consumer electronics isn’t a novel idea. Some of you may remember the nPower PEG from 2009’s CES, a gadget that promised to recharge your electronics from power gathered through your walking. Well, Ampy is pretty much the same thing, only in a smaller and more refined package. It packs an internal 1,000 mAh battery which is itself charged by a “proprietary linear inductor” that turns kinetic energy into electricity. Other devices use a magnet that slides back and forth along a coil, generating electricity in the process, though the proprietary nature of Ampy’s mechanism doesn’t allow us to confirm it’s the same thing. Regardless of how it works, its creators affirm that a 30 minute jogging session (or 1 hour cycling, or 10,000 walking steps) will top up its battery, which you can then use to fill a typical smartphone back up to about 75% charge. For any outdoorsy types, this could be interesting, especially at it’s early-adopter price of $75, on their Kickstarter.

This Battery Pack By Cobra Electronics Can Jump Start Your Car

cobra_jumpack

We’re used to seeing battery packs that can power a laptop or a tablet or any mobile device. Well, the CPP 7500 JumPack Portable Power Pack by Cobra Electronics does that. But it also packs enough juice to actually jump start your car as well. Churning out a massive 200Amp starting current, it can deliver up to 400Amp at peak, which is enough to get most dead car batteries up and running in no time. And it can do that multiple times on a single charge. Of course you don’t want to blast a mobile device with 200 Amps, so there’s also a 2.1Amp USB output for more moderate charging tasks. It measures 1 x 2.9 x 5 inches and weighs 10.6 ounces, which makes it easy to carry. At $110, it’s a steal.
