Today we are taking a look at Omnicharge, a versatile, intelligent and convenient battery pack. Let’s start by telling you how much juice we can find inside. There are two versions; the regular Omnicharge has a 13,600 mAh battery, while the Omnicharge PRO sports a 20,400 mAh one.
That’s a pretty good amount of power, especially considering an average smartphone’s battery is about 3,000 mAh. But capacity is not what makes the Omnicharge special. After all, we have seen much better options when it comes to that department. What we care about is all its other features.
For starters, the Omnicharge proves to be about the most flexible portable battery pack, as it has a regular AC/DC outlet. Yes, this does mean you can use it to power up pretty much anything, including fans, lamps, computers and more. In addition, the battery pack touts 2 USB ports for your smartphones and tablets, offering a maximum charging output of 4.8A (that’s pretty quick charging).
You can see everything the charger is doing through the informative OLED display. Details include the charging status, power input status, power output status, time remaining, battery levels and temperature. It can also recognize how much voltage it needs to power up your device ASAP, without putting them at danger.
It’s the little things that matter when choosing a good power bank, and this one has a good slew of awesome improvements. Even the fact that you can charge the battery pack at the same time as it powers up devices is a neat feature.
We like the Omnicharge, but are we willing to pay for it? Well, it’s not exactly cheap, but we believe it is a fair price if you appreciate all it has to offer. The standard version is going for at least $99 on Indiegogo, while upgrading to the Omnicharge PRO will set you back at least $129. Are you signing up?
