Mophie powerstation USB-C XXL and alternatives for the MacBook Pro

The manufacturer Mophie recently presented a power bank with a USB-C connection for the MacBook Pro 2016. Such an external battery for the Apple MacBook is nothing new in and of itself, but it should Mophie power station USB-C XXL not only charge the battery of the MacBook or supply the power during operation, but also look really great. There is a handsome price of 149,95 euros for the Mophie powerstation USB-C XXL. It should also be available in the Apple Store in the future. There are enough alternatives.

Mophie powerstation USB-C XXL: Powerbank for MacBook (Pro)

The new power bank from Mophie, a manufacturer primarily for Battery cases is known to have a capacity of 19.500 mAh, making it ideal for mobile devices. By being able to SmartphonesTo connect laptops, tablets and more either via USB-A or USB-C, there are different possible uses. The iPad Pro 9.7 '' should run up to 19 hours longer and the MacBook Retina up to 14 hours longer. The external battery itself should be full again in just 3 hours. In my own Online-Shop estimates Mophie for the not yet available Powerbank 149,95 euros. It is not yet available in the Apple Store.

Material reference: the unique selling point

The Mophie powerstation USB-C XXL with its connections and its capacity of 19.500 mAh is not the most powerful power bank, especially not in its price range. For around 150 euros you can still get two and a half anchor power banks with 26.800 mAh (of course, it should be noted that these are not into the Airplane hand luggage allowed to).

The fabric cover of the new external battery looks noble and, in addition to new charging technology and extensive compatibility, should justify the price of around € 150.

The fast charging of the power bank will definitely not remain the unique selling point of the new Mophie model. It could be different with the fabric surface. This should convey style and chic - ideal for hipsters who want to show off their MacBook Pro in the co-working space;)

Alternatives from Anker and Co.

Other manufacturers have been offering for a long time Power banks for the MacBook at. Among them is the manufacturer Anker. As in the linked article from February, in which I already presented two alternatives, I would also like to go into a specific model here. This is comparatively cheap, but equipped with a lot of power:

Anker PowerCore + 26800mAh
