Hyper today announced the launch of its new HyperJuice 130W Dual USB-C Battery Pack, which is now available for purchase following a successful crowdfunding campaign.

The new HyperJuice Battery Pack is equipped with two USB-C ports, one capable of outputting a maximum of 100W of power and a second capable of outputting 60W, which means it can be used to charge any of Apple's USB-C notebooks, including the 87W MacBook Pro. There's also an 18W USB-A port.

With this port combination, you can charge a MacBook Pro, iPad Pro, and iPhone at their maximum charging speeds all at the same time.

Hyper says that its new battery pack is the first in the world to support the 100W USB-C Power Delivery profile.

There's a 27,000mAh battery inside of the HyperJuice Battery Pack, which should provide a full charge for a MacBook Pro machine. This battery pack meets airline regulations and can be carried onto a plane.

The HyperJuice USB-C Battery Pack is made from aluminum in silver or space gray that's designed to match Apple products, and it weighs just over a pound.

Through a 112W power adapter that's an add-on, the HyperJuice Battery Pack can be recharged in just an hour, which is impressive for a high-capacity battery pack. Passthrough charging is supported, so you can charge the battery pack while also charging your devices.

You can get the HyperJuice 130W Dual USB-C Battery Pack from B&H Photo for $200, or purchase a bundle that includes the aforementioned optional 112W power adapter for $250 from the Hyper website.

It's not cheap, but I absolutely love mine. I've had a bunch of business travel lately, where I leave the plug-in charger at home and only bring HyperJuice for a 2-day trip. Really great; I just plug in the MBP and iPhone to it, and good to go. Don't have to worry about whether the under-seat power works on the airplane, or whether the plug is worn out in the hotel room... completely self-sufficient for days on end.

It's a solid little device... quite happy indeed.

How long does it take to fully recharge an electric car? And what is the cost for a full charge? Sorry, I'm a complete car noob, but am curious about tech things like this.
At home, from completely empty, about 3 1/2 hours. At a Supercharger station (over 1500 stations around the globe) about 45 minutes +/-. But you almost never charge from empty. Usually at home, it charges for 20 minutes or so a day. At the Supercharger, it gets 100 miles of range in less than 15 minutes. Enough time to take a bathroom break, grab a drink and get back in the car.

Superb. Zero range issues.

I hope in 10 years we look back to today’s technology laughing about those so called „powerbanks“ old people had to use when they were young

They’re 2170 cells, actually. Much better density than the 18650’s. But yes - they’re still Lithium battery.

Why would 1000-1500kM (~600-1000 mi) be needed on a charge? Most gas vehicles go from 300-400 miles on a tank of fuel - right in the same range for my battery car. (325ish)

I’ve never driven 600-1000 miles without stopping. Ever.

And as for hydrogen .... no thanks. At the NYIAS, Toyota had their Mirai on display, along with a cutaway.

Seeing the COPVs needed, no thanks. One puncture or accident and we have a major problem.
Off topic but.. I've never driven 600-1,000 miles without stopping either, but I have driven that far and stopped in places that still don't have charging stations but they do have fuel. I'm pleased with current battery tech. I just want the charging stations to catch up to the places I need to stop at while traveling without requiring additional stops.

I was one of the early backers for their KS campaign, for the $149 early bird. At the time they were claiming that price would be "50% off retail". So to me $200 isn't bad considering the competition isn't much cheaper and AFAIK, this is one of the very few powerbanks that can provide 20v/5a over USB-C PD.

I received mine in late December I believe... No problems with it so far and when plugged into my 2017 MBP15, the OS detects it as an 87w power source and will drain the power bank before switching to internal battery. Using Lightroom Classic at 75% brightness for culling/tagging photos, streaming music/4K video from Amazon Prime, and occasional web surfing all with a strong WiFi signal, I was able to get 8 hours with maybe 10-20% remaining on my MBP.

Based on the 3D renders of this retail model, my version looks much less refined. Not necessarily a complaint since it's not a big deal to me, but I would like to point out that these look much more proper and makes my version look like a mass-production prototype. Specifically, the end caps on this new retail version are not inset to the aluminum casing like it is on mine, which means no sharp aluminum edges that could possibly scratch things.

What's nice is these also use 8 standard 18650 batteries instead of a custom molded li-po pack which means I should be able to replace them at some point in the future. We'll see how the chipset on the charging circuit holds out since this thing can pass a lot of juice simultaneously on all 3 ports...

Did anyone fly with these yet? My concerns is airport/airline staff will just look at the mAh capacity and not the w/hour :(
Speaking as a former airline employee... Generally speaking there shouldn't be an issue as it is a power bank not a battery. There are no externally protruding terminals, just sockets like on any laptop or phone. It is loose batteries (with bare terminals) that airlines are most concerned about. (They might insist you take them into the cabin and not put them in checked baggage.)

There have been interests by competing industries to delay if not kill development of battery technology for use in the automotive industry.

Got to have hands in all the pies ;)
Gotta love conspiracy theories. I've heard that these delays are being caused by the same aliens ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_World_Order_(conspiracy_theory)#Illuminati') that shot JFK.
