Chargeasap Flash holds 20,000 mAh, and can transfer that power to MacBooks at up to 100W. This newly-released powerbank sports USB-C and USB-A ports, and even wireless charging for Apple Watch.

At its heart are four Tesla Lithium Polymer Graphene Composite Battery Cells.

Graphene technology offers higher energy density, and also makes this powerbank safer. Flash can fast charge at lower temperatures — it will never go above 50°C (122°F) unlike rivals that can reach 75°C (167°F).

Chargeasap Flash has plenty o’ ports

Chargeasap Flash includes a 100W USB-C Power Delivery port. In addition, two specially designed USB-A ports provide a total of 40W, and support all major brands’ fast charge technology, including Apple’s.

Its wireless charger has two coils. One offers up to 10W for smartphones, while the second provides 2.5W to an Apple Watch.

Chargeasap included pass-through charging. Its battery can receive electricity through its USB-C port while also sending it to the other ports.

Manufactured from aircraft-grade aluminium with an anodised finished, the accessory is available in Black or Space Grey.

The Chargeasap Flash debuted today on Indiegogo. Prices begin at $139/£107, but will soon go up to $149/£115. After the Indiegogo campaign concludes, the price will be $299/£230.

Powerbanks with built-in wireless chargers are hot now. Notable examples include the Courant Carry, the Mophie Powerstation Hub, and the Uniq HydeAir.
