Update September 29, 2022: This product has been recalled due to a potential fire hazard.
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 a solid little device... quite happy indeed.
Superb. Zero range issues.
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...
[doublepost=1558420319][/doublepost] 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.
