I took “Mophie's Powerstation AC” out for a test drive over the weekend at the camper trailer. Some would qualify this as being in the middle of nowhere, but it's a damn good nowhere.
The form factor of the “Mophie Powerstation AC” is probably the smallest possible considering that it provides you with an AC outlet. I do believe there's room to improve the battery capacity. Given that other brands offer similar products with higher capacity. It should be more than enough for most consumers. The high-output battery is capable of delivering safely up to 100W of power via its GFCI-protected AC outlet. The USB-C power delivery input and output port provide a fast charge to your USB-C laptop at 30W. The same port can recharge the “Powerstation AC” rapidly so that it's ready when needed.
An extra high-output USB-A port allows you to charge another power-hungry device concurrently. Avoiding the need to keep your device connected for extended periods. Pressing the LED power button lets you quickly glance and see the level of the battery. I'm not doing any substantial tests on the powerbank at hand. I'll be using it like any user of a product would. Let's connect things and see. Need a Mophie Powerstation? Battery Pack with AC, Type-C & Standard USB? Mophie Powerstation AC!
Sitting out in the open I've got the notebook battery down to 30%, the smartphone at 43% and whatever else I connected was down to 1 dot on the indicator. Everything to the battery charger is connected and hold and behold I've got everything working.
I'm not expecting to go all the way to 100% since the battery only offers a maximum of 22,000mAh. I'm looking forward to getting the juice pumping back into my devices. I believe that in a pinch, this would be perfect to get you through most days if you happen to be off the grid for too long. Battery Pack with AC, Type-C & Standard USB? Mophie Powerstation AC!
