Mophie, the top external battery brand in the US, has added a pair of new devices to its portfolio in the form of the powerstation PD and powerstation PD XL.
The two batteries share the same set of features across the board except for one, capacity. The powerstation PD houses a 6,700mAh battery while the powerstation PD XL packs a 10,500mAh power source.
The PD charging technology allows for a more universal charging experience, and it’s also incredibly fast. In fact, as mophie indicates, it will charge select iPhone devices up to 2.5 times faster than a tradition 5W charger. The same goes, of course for Android devices, which benefit from quick (up to 18W) speeds.
The mophie powerstation PD and powerstation PD XL house a shared USB-C PD port which works for both fast charging and recharging. Indeed, you can refill the power supply at speeds up to 15W. Additionally, the devices include a USB-A port for charging a second device at the same time.
“We developed this new line of powerstation batteries using the power delivery protocol so consumers can charge as quickly and safely as possible… the most advanced charging solutions that are convenient, fast, and efficient.” – Robert Johnson, mophie GM.
Both powerstations are finished with a familiar textured design, which not only look great but protect against scratches and scuffs. They also include an LED power indicator so that users have an understanding as to how much life is left in the battery.
The mophie powerstation PD and powerstation PD XL are available now at mophie’s website for a suggested retail price of $60 and $80, respectively.
In addition to the aforementioned models, Mophie has also introduces a new powerstation plus line of chargers. These portable batteries are equipped with integrated Lightning/micro USB switch tip output cables.
As we’ve seen in other mophie families of chargers, this one comes in three sizes, the powerstation plus mini (4,000mAh), powerstation plus (6,000mAh), and powerstation plus XL (10,000mAh).
With speeds up to 10W, you can also recharge the line wirelessly on any Qi-compatible wireless charger. Like other models from mophie, the Priority+ charging lets you charge the battery and an external device at the same time. Moreover, the powerstation plus offer the ever-present fabric material and LED power indicators.
The powerstation plus line will be available in a variety of colors in Q1 2019 for $60, $80, and $100, respectively.
