While OtterBox is known for its rugged phone and tablet cases, on Thursday it introduced a line of rugged, fast-charging power banks with wireless charging. There are also wall chargers and car chargers designed to quickly power mobile devices.

“Sudden battery loss, dodgy cables, painfully slow chargers and exposed wiring can leave you feeling powerless,” said OtterBox CEO Jim Parke in a statement. “OtterBox is here to put the power back in your hands.”

New OtterBox power banks for on the go

The new Fast Charge Power Bank comes in 10,000 mAh ($34.95), 15,000 mAh ($44.95) and 20,000 mAh ($54.95) versions. All include USB-A and USB-C ports capable of putting out 18W, with support for Apple Fast Charge.

OtterBox also makes versions of this portable battery with built-in wireless charging. A pad on one side can replenish recent iPhone models, as well as some Androids. A 10,000 mAh version costs $39.95 while a 15,000 mAh version is $49.95.

These power banks are “built to last in every setting from home office to rugged adventure,” according to OtterBox.

The company also released a Mobile Charging Kit that pairs a 5,000 mAh power bank with 3-in-1 charging head that can power up any mobile device.

Wall chargers and car chargers too

For use at home, school or the office, OtterBox introduced a line of 18W fast-charging wall chargers with USB-C ports. These come in white or back, and come bundled with either a 1-meter USB-C cable or a Lightning cable. They cost $39.95

There are also versions for use in a car at $34.95.

All these new fast-charging accessories are available today on the OtterBox website.
