Portable battery chargers to power up smart devices are a dime a dozen, and often specific as to what they can charge. A power bank that could charge, say, anything from an iPhone to a MacBook or even a portable fan simultaneously — now we’re talking.

Welcome to the Omnicharge smart power bank. This portable pack of power can charge up to three devices at the same time — two via USB ports and one via the AC/DC port. Moreover, I’ll never need to worry about finding a power outlet for my laptop with this super-handy and powerful device.

You can charge your smartphone while cycling or running with an accessory also designed to keep you alive on the road.

Sounds like a lot to ask of a battery pack, but the Boost Pack by BSEEN does both with a rather simple design.

The Boost is a belt pack with an LED light panel that stays lit or flashes. It also holds your smartphone and a lightweight 4000 mAH rechargeable travel battery pack to keep your phone charged.
