From the title you might be asking, “What’s an intelligent power bank,” right? Can it do your homework? Well, they’re not quite that level of smart, but the latest line of myCharge Power Banks are intelligent enough to detect what type of device you just hooked up. The iPhone takes a different input amperage than what an Android phone does, so this will make your device charge at the rate it should. The other improvement on their latest line of power banks is the fact that they can charge up to 200% faster, based on their input source.
myCharge’s light weight power bank is called the Talk & Charge. This portable battery is designed to be ultra-thin and is designed to be roughly the same size as your smartphone; it also has a soft touch (rubberized) to help keep it and your phone from sliding around while utilizing your phone. With that said, there is a specific iPhone and Android version of this battery. The iPhone version comes in a 3000mAh capacity and is compatible with the entire iPhone 5 line. Something you don’t find on a lot of products yet, is that it included a built-in lightning cable. The Android or Windows Phone version of this product will come in a 4000mAh capacity and is definitely larger in physical size, more closely representing the Galaxy S3/S4 in size. Of course with this power bank you will find a built-in MicroUSB cable. Finally, both versions of the Talkk & Charge include a second full-sized USB port to allow you to charge a second device. This power bank will run you $99.99.
The Razor Series is the next product they had available. This line of batteries, called the RazorPlus and RazorMax will come in 3000mAh and 6000mAh capacities, respectively. There are no built-in cables with this power bank, but instead it has two full-sized USB ports and you have to provide your own cable. The Razor Series power banks are super sleek and super thin, in which you should expect to find them for with a suggested price of $59.99 – $79.99.
Finally, myCharge also displayed a smaller capacity power bank to accommodate those with a smaller budget, as well as a moderate size version. This line of power banks is called the Amp Series and there are three different models. We’ll find the Mini, Plus, and Max, each sporting a capacity of 2200 mAh, 3000 mAh, 6000mAh, respectively. The Max would be your best bet if you want to charge a tablet just due to its larger capacity. The unique feature to the Plus and Max is the integrated LED flashlight, should you desire a feature like that. This line of power banks will run you $29.99 – $49.99.
All new myCharge products do come in a variety of colors and will be launching sometime between Late Q1 and Q2 of 2014.
