As we continue to gather more and more powerful gadgets, our need for portable power continues to increase too. There are external battery packs you can buy for different cell phones, but what about your other gear? Offering an all-in-one solution is the new AbsolutePower from Kensington. It charges three devices at once.
We’ve seen thsoe supplementary batteries before with powered USB ports, but many don’t give you enough juice to charge up something like an iPad, let alone a full blown notebook PC. The AbsolutePower is different, as this charger offers 100W of power and is compatible with a whole whack of products, including smartphones, tablets, and laptops. They say it works with everything from the BB Torch to the Sony Xperia, as well as the iPad 2, Playbook, and Galaxy Tab. And yes, your Windows laptop is totally fair game too.
The claim is that it “intelligently charges up to three devices at the same time,” presumably cutting off the juice when it recognizes that your iPhone has had enough. It also helps that the AbsolutePower is roughly the same size as a modern smartphone too, making it easy to pack away in a spare pocket or bag. It also comes with a number of adapters, serving most of the popular gadgets. Each of the two USB ports offer 2.1A.
The Kensington AbsolutePower portable charger will retail for $119.99 when it launches in October.
