Tesla launches external battery pack for iPhone and Android devices

Electric auto maker Tesla on Friday introduced a powerbank for Android phones and iPhones. It was designed after Tesla Design Studio's Supercharger monument and wouldn't look out of place inside one of the EV-maker's cars. It comes with built-in USB, micro USB and Apple's lightning cable so users won't have to worry about compatibility.

Unfortunately, there's no USB-C support which already dates the product somewhat. It comes with a handsome packing and definitely looks like a Tesla product. Tesla is touting performance that it says will make the Tesla Semi quicker and more economical than today's diesel-powered trucks.

The Tesla PowerBank packs a single 18,650 cell with a 3,350 mAh capacity. This PowerBank may not be for extreme power users that need to charge their phones a couple of times in a day.

The portable battery is now listed as sold out on the company's website. So consumers will purchase it because it is a Tesla product and of course, it will be more reliable and last longer than most of the power banks out there.

Other key metrics included record capacity, load and passenger numbers - the latter up nearly 10% at 80.2 million. The airline is expecting £100 million in one-off costs associated with the deal.

In a somewhat stealth move, Tesla has launched a Powerbank in its iconic red and black colours. These electronics accessories are designed and manufactured with at most precession and use the same components as of the Tesla electric cars. As per the company, it has used the same 3D CAD data used to make the actual Supercharger to make the minaturized replica.

The first, and arguably best, accessory is the Desktop Supercharger. With such capacity, the device can charge an Android smartphone just once, or maybe less in some cases.

Both the Desktop Supercharger and Powerbank cost $45, and if you're interested, you can buy them from Tesla's website right now. Yes, Tesla launched its own power bank at that event.
