Over the past few years we have seen remarkable improvement in battery life, however, most of the laptop users still find themselves running for power outlet quite often. MOS has come up with a solution for this problem by coming up with Reach Go, first power bank capable of charging a compatible laptop at a wall outlet’s rate.
The full speed charging capability is thanks to the USB-C port that Reach Go features and can also be found in recent laptops such as Macbook and Chromebook Pixel. It also sports a pair of standard USB type A ports, each of which is capable of cranking an output of 5V/2.4A while also being capable of recharging more than one device simultaneously.
The battery is worth 15,000mAh and can charge a MacBook three times. The device also doubles up as a USB 3.0 hub for quick file transferring between devices even while they are being charged. The creators also have plans for including intelligent ports, over-current protection and auto-shutoff.
Think that’s all that this gadget has to offer? Think again; instead of requiring a power brick and a cable to recharge itself, the MOS Reach Go does it by making use of its USB-C port. The recharging process takes about four hours. It measures in at 143x72x20mm and weighs in at 315g.
As of now, it will be released in October, 2015 with a price tag of $99. The device is being bootstrapped instead of being crowdfunded.
