mophie announces powerstation PD and PD XL universal batteries

mophie has announced ahead of CES the powerstation PD and powerstation PD XL, two universal batteries designed to charge popular smartphones at the fastest speed possible. 

The powerstation PD features a 6,700mAh battery, while the powerstation PD XL is packed with a 10,050mAh battery. Both will charge select iPhone smartphones up to 2.5 times faster compared to a standard 5W charger, or up to 50% in just 30 minutes, says Robert Johnson, general manager for mophie.

The mophie powerstation PD and powerstation PD XL feature a shared USB-C PD input and output port, which delivers fast charging (18W) and recharging (15W). An additional USB-A port allows for two devices to be charged simultaneously. With Priority+ charging, power is sent to connected devices first before the powerstation itself starts to recharge. An LED power indicator displays the charging status and current battery life. 

 Both powerstations are finished with a textured design, providing a comfortable feel and protection against scratches or scuffs when stowed alongside other devices, says Johnson. As with all mophie batteries, the powerstations are triple-test certified to ensure peak performance and safe operation, he adds.

 The mophie powerstation PD and powerstation PD XL are available today on for a suggested retail price of $59.95 and $79.95, respectively.

 In addition to the powerstation PD and powerstation PD XL, mophie also announced a new powerstation plus line equipped with integrated Lightning/micro USB switch tip output cables. Available in three sizes, the powerstation plus mini (4,000mAh), powerstation plus (6,000mAh), and powerstation plus XL (10,000mAh) batteries will charge your device with speeds up to 10W. 

You can also recharge the powerstation plus XL wirelessly on any Qi-compatible wireless charger. The powerstation plus line features Priority+ charging, micro USB recharging input, premium fabric finish, and LED power indicators. The powerstation plus line will be available in various colors on in the first quarter of 2019 for $59.95, $79.95, and $99.95, respectively.
