Antec Expands Mobile Powerbank Line-Up

If you’ve ever found yourself outside the reach of an electrical outlet while your smartphone’s battery is running out, then you’ll know the advantages of having a powerbank in your pockets. Antec is mostly known for their chassis and power supply units, but they also have a list of mobile products and that a.m.p line of units just got three more siblings. The three new units consists of the PowerUp Slim 2200, the LifeBar 10 with 10,000mAh,  and the ultra-compact multitasking powerbank LifeCard.

The biggest of the three is clearly the LifeBar 10 with an incredible 10,000 mAh of backup power, enough to charge several devices a couple of times. That amount of power provides up to 33 additional speaking hours or 53 hours of surfing the internet from your smartphone. With two USB ports, you can charge several devices at once and it might even be faster than your other charger due to its dual 1A-2A USB ports for up to four times quicker charging. The housing is made of brushed aluminium for elegance, portability, and stability. The four-level LED on the top will show the current charging status of the powerbank and it even comes with a torch light at the bottom side.

If 10,000 mAh should be way more than you need, then the more average PowerUp Slim 2200 might be just right for you. It has a storage capacity for 2,200 mAh and comes with two 1A-USB ports for ultra-fast recharging. The slim design and small measurements of just 105 x 68 x 10.8 mm make it highly portable and it fits into almost any pocket. You can also charge two devices simultaneous with this powerbank and thanks to overcharging protection, discharging protection, protection from short circuits (SCP), overvoltage protection (OCP) overheating protection (OTP), the PowerUp Slim 2200 is an always reliable charging device.

The Antec PowerUp Slim 2200 is available in blue, green and silver, to match your preferred colour choice. The LED bar on the top will show you the charging status and it automatically switches off when not in use.

The previous two powerbanks were pretty normal in the way that they’re just powerbanks. But Antec’s LifeCard takes it one step further as a multitasker. It is only 6mm thick and weighs only 49gram, yet it still packs a lithium-polymer battery with 2,000mAh to charge your smartphone and other devices. Two exchangeable silicon ribbons allow the comfortable storage of multiple credit or banking cards, and also cash as shown in the image below.

The LifeCard has a 1A USB port for short charging times and the ultra-slim design as well as the Unibody-housing made of aluminium give the LifeCard both elegance and sturdiness.

The PowerUp Slim 2200 is available at a suggested retail price of £19.99. The LifeBar 10 is priced £29.99 and the LifeCard is available for £16.99.

Never Run out of Power Again with the Iron Man Power Bank

Ok firstly, this looks insanely awesome, secondly, it’s full name is the Iron Man V Armor Power Bank. Now that those two things are out of the way, I can talk a bit more about what you’re looking at.

This is a mobile power bank, these are very helpful devices that act as a second battery for your mobile or tablet device but this battery is huge. If you’re ever out and about and running low on tech juice, grab your power block, connect your device via a USB cable and there you have it, nice and simple indeed.

Now this power block in-particular comes with a massive 12,000 mAh battery capacity to provide users with enough power to charge a tablet or a smartphone. This is enough juice to recharge an iPhone 5S 5 times, apparently.

“Each Iron Man Mark V Armor Suitcase Mobile Fuel Cell has 12,000 mAh of power. That’s enough to charge an iPhone 5S five times! The Iron Man Fuel Cell also has two USB ports (5V at 1 amp and 5V at 2 amp), so you can charge a tablet and phone at the same time. But this just isn’t a Mobile Fuel Cell, it’s also a 1/4 scale prop replica, as the Iron Man Mark V Armor Suitcase Mobile Fuel Cell was designed using the original prop and 3D digital files provided by Marvel. If you like showing off technology, charging your doodads, and carrying a little bit of Iron Man in your pocket, then this is the charger for you!”

As awesome as this little thing is, it’s not cheap. This little armor case will set you back $99.99 but I think it’s worth it just because it’s Iron Man. 10/10 would buy.
