Portable power banks should be seen but not felt. The last thing you need when embarking on your daily treks is to be encumbered by extra weight just so you can charge your mobile devices. Last month, Nitecore unveiled the lightest 20,000mAh power bank in the world with its Carbo 20000, using a carbon fiber shell to shed weight.
The Chinese brand has followed that up with an even smaller and lighter version, dubbed the Summit 10000, a 10,000mAh power bank that weighs a remarkable 6oz — around half of the Carbo. Constructed with a durable unibody carbon fiber shell for an IPX5 impact resistance rating, the lithium-ion charger features a USB-A port with 18W of output and a USB-C port with 20W of output.
As impressive as the Summit 10000 is in terms of weight, its major selling point is its performance in sub-zero temperatures thanks to its innovative heating mode. Where most portable chargers would go almost numb in -4ºF climates, the Summit still performs at 70% capacity, with stable output even as low as -40ºF.
Perfect for climbers and mountaineers looking for cold-weather reliability, the Summit 10000 should be available soon from retailers. For pricing information, contact Nitecore on its website.
