If the idea of your mobile gadget running out of juice leaving you incommunicado (or, heaven forbid, bored) fills you with fear, then a battery pack is the obvious solution. But what if your power needs vary from day to day? Exogear has developed a battery pack that it touts as the world’s first stackable battery pack that is designed to adapt to suit your battery needs, no matter how small or how great.
The Exovolt Plus consists of a 5,200 mAh main battery unit that has been designed for iOS devices but, in addition to its 30-pin connector, also includes USB and micro-USB ports for charging non-Apple mobile devices.
Additional Sub Battery units, also 5,200 mAh, can be stacked under the main unit to increase the amount of battery power. These Sub Batteries are sold separately, but as they don’t include any connection ports themselves, they require the main unit to function. A four-LED light on the main unit shows how much power is left in entire stack.
Exogear hasn’t revealed a release date for the Exovolt Plus, other than saying it is “coming soon.” But when released the main battery unit will retail for US$89.95, with 30-pin charge/sync and micro-USB cables included, while additional Sub units will go for $49.95.
