Mophie’s Powerstation AC can charge your laptop over AC power

Mophie has announced its first external battery with AC power, a 22,000mAh juice pack that also supports USB Power Delivery. The Powerstation AC offers up to 100 watts of AC output, so you’ll be able to charge laptops and other devices that normally require a wall outlet.

Alternatively, there’s a USB-C port that outputs 30W over USB-PD charging technology, so you’ll be able to rapidly charge your iPhone 8 or iPhone X (assuming you already have a USB-C to Lightning cable).

You can also use the USB-C port to charge a compatible laptop like the Apple MacBook or MacBook Pro.

In addition, there’s a USB Type-A port for charging other peripherals, which provides up to 2.4A of power.

The Powerstation AC will work with three devices at once, but it’ll automatically shut off the USB ports once the AC port begins pulling 100W.

One nifty feature is something called Priority+ Charging, where you can connect the Powerstation AC to a wall outlet at night and still charge a connected device. The passthrough charging sends power to your device first, before recharging the external battery, so they’ll both be fully charged in the morning.

Unsurprisingly, this is a rather large and heavy battery, measuring 190 x 114 x 28mm and weighing 756g. It comes with a hefty price tag too, and is available to buy now at US$199.95.
