If you’re going to inconvenience yourself carrying a power bank out of the house, it might as well be the best darn battery workhorse you can find. For our money, few power banks can match what the Pronto 12 brings to the table.
Made by Power Practical, it’s a 13,500 mAh power bank that you can use to charge your iPhone up to nine times throughout the course of the day. We’re not entirely sure what you’re doing with a phone to require nine full recharges in the span of 24 hours, but you’ve certainly got the option if you ever find yourself in that situation.
Even better, the Pronto 12 comes with a 12-volt output that you can use to juice your DSLRs, laptops, and other power-hungry devices, so you can work on a computer in the middle of nowhere without having to scour the area for available wall outlets. Most impressively, though, the pack’s 13,500 mAh battery can fill up after just one hour of being plugged into a wall outlet. That means, you can plug it early in the morning as soon as you wake up and have it fully-charged by the time you’re ready to leave the house (assuming you do the whole “take a shower, shave, get dressed, and maybe some breakfast” routine).
Features include a one-piece anodized aluminum housing to ensure durability, a rubberized cap to seal the ports from the elements, and LED indicators for capacity and charge rate. It comes with two 2.4A USB ports and a 12-volt output.
Slated for availability sometime this fall, the Power Practical Pronto 12 is priced at $149.99.
