Nitecore Debuts A Sub-1LB 20,000mAh Battery With IPX8 Waterproofing

Mobile gadgets and tech have become an increasingly integral aspect of our lives, and as such having the ability to keep our devices juiced-up is arguably more important now than ever before. Recognizing this reality, award-winning electronics and gear outfit, Nitecore has just introduced the NPB4, a thoroughly rugged and ultra-potent mobile power bank in a compact 4.07″× 2.02″× 1.95″ form.

The NPB4 is the predecessor 5,000mAh NPB1, which was the world’s first “truly IP68-rated power bank.” The cell’s insanely-powerful battery is a 21700 Li-on unit that was originally developed for use in the electric car industry. Weighing just 378-grams (or 0.83lbs), the NPB4 packs a whopping 20,000mAh cell, enough to recharge the iPhone 12 Pro Max more than five times, or enough to replenish the latest iPad more than 2.5 times or an Airpods case a cool 32 times. The power bank can also deliver charges at lightning-fast 18W speeds via USB-A or C ports. IP68-rated, the power bank can survive being submerged in more than 6.5’ of water and can operate in extreme temperatures ranging from 14°F to 104°F (or-10°C to 40°C). Sold with a MOLLE-compatible nylon holster, the Nitecore NPB4 Power Bank is available now, with pricing set at $99.
