Before the launch of any new flagship smartphone it is prepped throughout the year. Small leaks and assumptions are floating all around the rumors until the phone finally launches. That is what happened with the Galaxy S8 launch. But I am not here to write about that cause with a smartphone comes a bag full of accessories. On that note Samsung just launched the new fast charge portable battery pack.
The new portable battery pack has a 5,100 mAh power cell. The ports include a full size USB port and a USB Type C with fast charging. With the batter pack you will get a microUSB to USB cable and a microUSB to USB Type C adapter. The remaining power on the battery is displayed using an LED bar. Also a very handy strap for easy carry. If the device does not support fast charging than it will charge with the standard 2A output.
The new Samsung portable battery pack has a price tag of $59.99 and navy and gray color options. It is available on Samsung’s US website. No announcements on a worldwide launch. 60 bucks sounds good for a battery pack with fast charging. Most first party accessory don’t cost any less than a 100 bucks. So this is a very pleasant change and Samsung should be looking at another stock out situation very soon.
