Samsung has released a new battery pack for its Galaxy smartphones with an unusual kettle shaped design, after initially introducing the accessory along with others in October last year. The 5100 mAh battery pack is currently listed on the company’s online store with a shipping time of between one and three days. It’s priced at $29.99 and has some useful features that are likely to be popular with buyers. The mobile accessory has a comfortable grip and is available in an attractive Mint Blue color with an appealing modern look. Samsung is continually launching new accessories for its devices, and a 10,200 mAh version of the battery pack is also available with a price tag of $39.99.
If you're interested in the Samsung Battery Pack Kettle you simply need to charge it up in advance and it will enable you to keep your smartphone charged up when you’re out and about, or not by a convenient wall outlet. The features include an LED bar battery status indicator so that you can easily see how much juice you have left at all times, and it has useful kickstand cables that can also act as a stand for your handset with convenient viewing angles. This could come in handy if you want to watch a movie or browse on your smartphone while it’s being charged. Another practical addition is a wrist strap enabling easy portability of the battery pack with your smartphone.
Dimensions of the new kettle shaped battery pack are 2.2 x 3.6 x 0.91-inches and it weighs 0.33 lb. It has input voltage of 5V 2.0A and output voltage of 5V 1.8A (normal) respectively and connectivity options for USB A type and microUSB. The accessory is compatible with many Galaxy smartphones including the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 (but not the Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus), and you can find a full compatibility list at the Samsung product page link below. If you have the new Galaxy S8 or S8 Plus you might instead be interested in the Samsung Fast Charge 5100 mAh portable battery pack that became available earlier this month, although it’s more expensive with a price tag of $59.99.
