Australian outfit Chargeasap is back on crowdfunding site Indiegogo with new high-capacity power banks for charging gadgets on the go. The Flash Pro works for Android and the MagSafe-compatible Flash Pro Plus is designed for Mac.

We’ll focus on the Flash Pro Plus. Both banks carry a huge 2500mAh capacity, with three USB-C ports and one USB-A port. The company calls the products the “world’s most powerful graphene power bank” and “the world’s fastest power bank.”

That much portable power comes in a package that weighs about 1.3 pounds in the case of the Flash Pro Plus — not super light. And it’s not cheap. But it will keep up to six of your devices going at one time, the company said.

The banks have been redesigned and upgraded with an additional battery.

“It now has enough capacity to charge a 13-inch Macbook 1.3 times, or charge an iPhone 12 Pro 7 times,” the company said.

Flash Pro Plus for Mac

The Flash Pro Plus puts out a total of 190W of power and can charge up to six devices at once. One USB-C port can push 100W while the other two do 60W each. The USB-A port powers devices at up to 50W.

For iPhones, the Flash Pro Plus offers 15W for the iPhone 12 series and 10W for other devices. The pad on the bank designed for Apple Watch offers 5W of charging power.

The company said it added the third USB-C port by popular demand to allow full-speed charging for a 16-inch Macbook Pro, a 13-inch Macbook Pro and an iPhone 12 Pro – all at the same time and at maximum speed.

Price: Flash Pro Plus is $149 during the 60-day Indiegogo campaign launched July 20; Flash Pro is $139. Retail prices are $319 and $299, respectively. Shipping expected in December 2021.
