Called the world's first pocket-sized, mobile power solution by maker Xantrex, the XPower Pocket Powerpack is a mobile power solution that is said to give consumers a boost when they're stuck with a dead battery and no outlet.
The powerpack can recharge a Blackberry 30 times, an iPod 20 times or provide up to 2.5 hours of additional run-time for a laptop before it needs to be recharged, according to the maker.
Xantrex said, whether a user needs an extra hour on a plane to finish a presentation due when the plane lands or finish the movie being watched on a DVD player, the devices can be plugged directly into the powerpack to keep it working or available for playing or watching.
Suggested retail is $119.
