Whether it’s getting away from it all on a camping weekend or getting caught unawares by a power blackout, we all like to have backup power available. One possibility for people is PLUG, a project on IndieGogo that offers to charge just about any of your electronics.

PLUG offers a bunch of power, up to 48,000mAh of power in fact. It’s a big unit, but the pack lets you plug in almost anything you want from a full AC-Power plug (2 in fact) to USB-A (2 of those) or a USB-C connection. The AC Power outlets support international plugs including Australian plugs.

PLUG can supply 250Watts of power, basically it’s enough to power your laptop, a games console, your phone, a TV or even a mini-fridge.


For the environmentally conscious the PLUG can also be charged using a Solar Power Cell, with the cell able to supply a full charge of the pack in 8 hours. If you just want to plug it into a wall, you can do that too – although you’ll need an adapter.

PLUG is fully funded on IndieGoGo now, and ChargeTech has previously come through on a previous battery project. A single pack starts at $199USD, with a PLUG with Solar panel starting at $349USD – you’ll have to pay additional shipping charges on top.

If PLUG sounds like something up your alley, head over to IndieGoGo and check it out.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
