“We developed this new line of powerstation batteries using the power delivery protocol so consumers can charge as quickly and safely as possible,” said Robert Johnson, general manager for mophie. “As consumer habits evolve, mophie adapts to deliver the most advanced charging solutions that are convenient, fast, and efficient. The powerstation PD and PD XL are no exception.”
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. As with all mophie batteries, the powerstations are triple-test certified to ensure peak performance and safe operation.
The mophie powerstation PD and powerstation PD XL are available today on mophie.com for a suggested retail price of $59.95 and $79.95 respectively.
