All of us probably own a battery pack or 2, or 10 by now. I know I have a drawer full of them (most of which are being given away every Friday here on the site). But UNU has a new battery pack that's rather interesting. This is the UltraPack Go and UltraPack TOUR which are $59.99 and $99.99 respectively. So what's different between these new battery packs and ones that are already on the market from Limefuel, Anker, and many other manufacturers. Well the fact that it can charge up 2000mAh in about 15 minutes and 3000mAh in about 30 minutes. Which means if you have a Samsung Galaxy S5 or a LG G3, then you can charge up your device from complete dead in just 30 minutes. That's pretty amazing. Seeing as battery packs typically charge your phone slower than plugging it into the wall. The UltraPack GO has a single USB outlet which is a 2.1A, while the TOUR has two, one is a 1A, and the other is a 2.1A. Pre-orders are live now and will be sent out by the end of the month. They also come with a LED display that tells you how much battery is left. For those interested, we have the full press release down below.
UNU Introduces the Ultrapakâ„¢ Series: World's Fastest-Charging Battery Pack
Ultrapak Series with Revolutionary Ultra-X Charging Technologyâ„¢ provides all-day power in a little as fifteen minutes
Union City, Calif. â€" June 10, 2014â€"UNU Electronics, your most reliable portable power source announced the release of the Ultrapak Portable Battery Pack Series, featuring its patent-pending Ultra-X Charging Technology. UNU's Ultra-X Charging Technology enables the fastest way in the industry to charge a portable battery pack, up to 8X faster than conventional batteries. In as little as 15 minutes, UNU's Ultra-X Charging Technology makes it possible for the Ultrapak to gather 2000mAh of energy – the equivalent amount of power that is needed to power a smartphone for a full day.
"Instead of charging a phone for 15 minutes, which may yield less than 10% additional power, users can promptly recharge the Ultrapak and collect enough backup power to keep their phones going for a full day. The invention of the Ultrapak fulfills the urgent needs of a fast-charging solution in a time sensitive power deficiency", said Brian Westphal, Chief Marketing Officer.
Two versions of the Ultrapak are available: The Ultrapak GO and the UltrapakTOUR.
While it is important to note that mobile device charging speeds cannot be increased, UNU has developed an effective alternative which allows users to charge a portable battery pack at unprecedented speeds. This innovation allows the lengthy recharging process to happen throughout the day, on-the-go, versus having users tied to an outlet at home or at the office for a few hours.
The Ultrapaks are geared for power users who do not wish to be bogged down with portable battery packs that require long periods of time to fully charge. Maximum charge time for the Ultrapak GO is only 30 minutes to secure its full capacity of 3000mAh and similarly, the Ultrapak TOUR requires approximately 100 minutes to fully deliver up to 10,000mAh of energy into its battery core.
Each unit is packaged with a durable rubberized, anti-slip frame for easy grip and handling. It features an integrated LED screen, indicating battery levels within 1% as well as remaining time to FULL when charging. The LED screen does not only show the power, it also helps users to facilitate the energy in the power and manage the entire charging process in any way they like. The Ultrapak GO includes a single USB 2.1A output, while the Ultrapak TOUR sports two USB outputs, 1.0A and 2.1A for efficient charging of tablets and smartphones.
