Mophie Announces New 3XL USB-C Powerstation For MacBooks
To add to its range of premium power-based devices, manufacturer Mophie has appended its lineup with a brand new USB-C powerstation unit designed to charge Apple’s range of MacBooks.
Named powerstation USB-C 3XL, the hardware is designed to deliver fast-charging to Apple’s MacBook hardware as well as other compatible hardware on the market.
This is also classified as a brand new high-capacity unit due to the fact that it is essentially a unit carrying a 26,000mAh capacity that is designed to attempt to extend the life of a MacBook by up to 18-hours. For those hardcore MacBook users, or who use their Apple machine for work purposes, this is definitely going to be a gift from the heaven’s above.
The powerstation USB-C 3XL unit itself can also be rapidly recharged through a dedicated 45W USB-C input as well as charge other devices with convenience thanks to the additional USB-A port on the device. From a highlight perspective, the hardware offers the usual premium quality that we’d expect from a company like mophie.
And, for that reason, and because of the name attached to the device, consumers are going to pay somewhat of a premium. Its main purpose is as a high-capacity 26,000mAh charging device complete with Lightning connector, high-speed USB-C output to 45W, and an additional USB-A output for secondary charging.
The company has also included a technology called Priority+ which ensures that the connected hardware – i.e. a MacBook – receives charge before the powerstation USB-C 3XL device. The new unit comes with a lovely physical design as well as a collection LEDs on the unit itself to provide immediate visual feedback on the charging status and the internal battery life.
The brand new mophie hardware is priced at $199.95 and is available directly from the mophie website. Apple online and Apple Retail are also stocking the hardware thanks to an ongoing sales partnership with mophie. With a purchase via the Apple route, you can check out and arrange to pick the hardware up locally at an Apple Retail store. There is also immediate free shipping to have the powerstation delivered directly to your door without any additional charge.
