If you are looking for a new battery pack, but want more functionality right out of the box, Satechi may have an option for you.
Today, the company officially introduced the Quatro USB-C battery bank. It’s probably the first of its kind: an external battery that not only offers USB-C and USB-A wired charging, but also Qi and Apple Watch wireless charging. All in one simple, portable package.
When it comes to wired charging with the USB-C port, it offers up to 18 W PD charging for smartphones and tablets. The dedicated wireless charging plate of the Apple Watch supports up to 2.5 W wireless charging. And the Qi-enabled wireless charging plate supports up to 5W wireless charging. The Qi wireless charging section is probably best for AirPods and AirPods Pro wireless charging.
Meanwhile, the USB-A wired charging option has up to 12W charging.
The only potential drawback is the 10,000 mAh battery to charge all of these devices. It will not be enough to charge a drained iPad Pro, for example. But it should be enough to make sure you can stay charged enough to keep running.
There are LED lights along the bottom edge to feel the power bank’s battery level in an instant. And the accessories sell for $ 99.99.
Satechi is accepting pre-orders for Quatro right now, and you can save $ 20 if you do so from the company’s website. Shipping is expected to start in mid-October this year.
