Apple’s notebooks pack some of the best laptop batteries out there, but you’re always going to find yourself low on power when using your MacBook on the road. Fortunately, Kanex’s new PowerGo battery pack can save the day.

Packing 15,000 mAh of power and USB-C connectivity, it’s capable of giving your 12-inch Retina MacBook a full charge on the go — and it’ll keep your iOS devices topped up, too.

The GoPower is designed to be super portable, so despite packing so much power, it’s not too big or too heavy. It’s also attractive thanks to its cool aluminum shell, and it should be the only power pack you need when you’re on the move.

Featuring a do-it-all USB-C port with an output of 5 volts at 3 amps, the PowerGo is a perfect companion for your MacBook. It will charge your machine from zero to 100%, and if you don’t need all that juice, you can use it to charge other devices, too.

The GoPower also features a standard USB port with an output of 5 volts at 2.4 amps, which you can use for just about everything — including your iPhone, iPad, iPod, handheld games console, camera, and more. And with built-in circuit protection, it’s all totally safe.

The GoPower sports LED charging lights so you can check battery life in a flash, and it ships with a USB-C to standard USB charging cable. You can order yours today from the Kanex website or from for $99.95.
