Mophie Launches New Set of Portable Batteries and Wireless Chargers With USB-C Fast Charging

Mophie today announced three new portable batteries and a new wireless charging stand, all compatible with Apple devices like the MacBook Pro, iPad, and iPhone, and available to purchase today.


The portable batteries include the new Powerstation (10,000 mAh, $49.95) and Powerstation XXL (20,000 mAh, $59.95). The former device can charge two devices simultaneously through one USB-A port and one USB-C port, while the latter can charge three devices at once through two USB-A ports and one USB-C port.

Both accessories support USB-C fast charging at up to 18W output, letting users gain up to 50 percent battery on their ‌iPhone‌ in under 30 minutes. They also both have a premium fabric finish and textured perimeter to help prevent scuffs and scratches. As with most Mophie products, the integrated four-light LED shows current battery life.


The third mobile battery is the Powerstation Wireless XL ($69.95), which includes a 10,000 mAh battery and built-in wireless charging with any Qi-supported smartphone. There's also a USB-A port and USB-C port for wired charging. This device also has a premium fabric finish and four-light LED power indicator on the side.

Lastly, the Powerstation Wireless Stand ($99.95) supports both wired and wireless charging of Qi compatible smartphones. This accessory has a battery capacity of 8,000 mAh and up to 10W of wireless power output, an 18W USB-C power delivery port, and one USB-A port. It includes an ultrasuede finish and can hold an ‌iPhone‌ at an angle, or be folded flat.


If you want to use it as a wired charger, you can simply keep the Powerstation Wireless Stand plugged in at your desk or bedside table. Once it's fueled up, you can unplug the device and use it wirelessly as a portable battery pack, and it supports simultaneous charging of up to three devices with its two extra ports.

How convenient is that? No scrambling to find a cable, just lay your phone / airpods on top of the battery and you're good to go. Now that's cool.

I have 4 Anker batteries that I enjoy using - but have to always make sure to keep cables nearby (or plugged in).

Anker has a 10,000mAh QI pack for about half the price, albeit only 5w charging (12w from the ports).

Why do all portable battery manufacturers list their capacities in mAh when Wh is a more accurate measurement of total energy? Are they all providing the same voltage?

Anyway, these do look nice. That wireless charging addition is a nice touch.

I generally find wireless charging on the battery useless.

The use case for me is charging on the go. When you’re on the go, you need to fill up fast. Qi doesn’t fill up fast. So I’m not sure what the point is with Qi charging.

Wireless charging in a cradle is fine for me, works great. I've bought several wireless batteries and I end up not using them at all. It sounds great, but you can only wirelessly charge when you have a flat surface. If you have to put it in a bag or airplane seat back, it is worthless.

I travel with a 10,000 18W PD battery that has a USB-C and USB-A 1.02 x 2.20 x 3.11 inches and 6.3 ounces. $30 on Amazon.

I don't need another, but this is a solid option for $15

Yep, I agree. That's why I own Anker. :) 2-18w 20,000 mAh bricks, a nice small 18w 10,000 mAh brick, and a massive 60w 25,600 mAh brick. I say it's a hobby but it's an addiction.

I usually get them on huge discount via Macrumors links. Sometimes 50% off. The 2 20k bricks were $27ish each after taxes. Just nuts.

It is convention to list the combined mAh rating of the 3.6v Li-ion cells the battery packs contain. Other thing to note is that this is the raw storage capacity of the cells, a significant portion of which will never get to your phone, because it first has to run through circuitry to convert it to 5v (or for some fast charging schemes, higher voltages) before the phone can use it.
