Many modern smartphones have sealed batteries, meaning we can’t readily change them out when they get low. Sony understands the issues this can present, as we’re often left to negotiate being ‘on the go’ and the battery life of our devices. Their answer? Battery packs to power your phones and tablets.
The CP-F5 and CP-F10L, 5,000mAh and 10,000mAh respectively, are being offered up by Sony to help us get through our day. Both are sleek and stylish, and pretty run-of-the-mill as far as battery packs are concerned. They will charge your device in less than two hours, and take about 7 hours to replenish using AC power. The CP-F5 will have one port, while the CP-F10L will have two for charging multiple devices.
Sony says that after 1,000 charges, the Lithium Ion batteries will retain 90% of their capacity. Both battery packs are aluminum, and have similar power outputs (CP-F5 gives you 1.5A, while the CP-F10L will charge at 1.8A per port).
The devices are currently available in India, at Sony stores and other major electronics retailers. The CP-F5 will run about $42, while the CP-F10L will set you back $72 or so. At that price, with the sleek modern style Sony brings to the table, we’d love to see these in stores and online soon.
