Anyone who has ever attended a middle school dance knows the words to the disco classic ‘Electric Boogie’ by Bunny Wailer. The lyrics of that song proclaim “Now you can't hold it, it's electric (boogie woogie woogie).”
Well, Bunny, turns out you were wrong about that. In 2021 you can hold electricity, and whole lot of it at that! OK, technically you can’t hold the electricity by itself, but you can hold EcoFlow’s new DELTA mini portable power station which has a massive 882Wh capacity (the average cell phone has a 12Wh battery for comparison).
Whether you’re camping the great outdoors, hiking a mountaintop, or reeling from a natural disaster, having access to portable power can be the difference between comfort, misery, or something far worse. From now through September 30, you can save hundreds on these portable battery and charging solutions from EcoFlow.
Whether you’re in need of electricity amid a brief outage, or you’re reeling from a natural disaster, having access to portable power can be the difference between life and death.

Here’s everything you need to know about the DELTA Pro, including how you can back it to on Kickstarter for a super early bird price of $1,999, while supplies lasts.

Buying a portable battery can be a tricky process, especially in the modern age of USB Power Delivery. With USB-PD being the finicky standard that it is, not all devices work with all chargers — a battery that is perfectly compatible with your phone might not charge your Chromebook at all.
Thankfully, for those of you looking wanting a battery that can quickly charge just about any device, Aukey's new Power Bank 26800mAh does the job nicely. We also had a peek at the company's smaller 10,000mAh model, which has a slower maximum charging speed but does add a Qi charging pad.

Here's what you need to know.
