August 30, 2006 The new Xantrex PowerSource Mobile 100 offers an interesting and almost universal handheld power system that can operate multiple electronic products at different voltage and power levels. The US$130 PowerSource Mobile 100 is the only compact mobile power source with an AC outlet and two USB outlets with the capability to operate portable devices at varying power levels. This goes beyond products currently available on the market, and it means consumers can now operate or charge a high power product like a laptop, and low power devices such as an iPod and a cell phone all at the same time.
