The best inventions solve those pesky little problems that make the day-to-day living not necessarily difficult, but annoying.
Like, for instance, hunting around the airport for an outlet because you are in the middle of a project and your laptop is on 5 — no, wait, 4 — percent. Mophie, makers of a now-ubiquitous portable phone charger, know what’s up. And that’s why they’ve released the Powerstation USB-C XXL, with enough power to charge an Apple laptop from 2015 or later.
The whole unit isn’t much bigger than a smartphone charge pack, but it’s packing enough juice to fully recharge a laptop via a rapid-charging USB-C connector. It also looks a heck of a lot cooler than that tangled, dirty-white cord you usually use.
And for $150, the price of convenience is just right.
