New gadgets take the spotlight at CES. And though we’re occasionally blinded by the bright, shiny things, we know where our loyalties lie. Behind the barrage of posts and sprinting between booths, the real stars of the show are the tried and true bits of gear we’re using behind the scenes. Each of us has our own beloved item — tech or otherwise — that we’ll swear is the only reason we made it out of Vegas alive. Spoiler: There are a lot of batteries mentioned in this post.
Inductive charging means you’ll never have to plug your phone in again, and to avoid clunky add-on solutions if your device doesn’t have it built in, Duracell has created this wafer thin adaptor card that slips in alongside its battery.
The Gadget: Duracell’s Powerpack 450 is a portable power source for AC, DC and USB-powered electronics. It also features a vehicle jump starter, air compressor, flashlight and a voice feature.
Duracell vs Energizer was one of the headlining tech fights of the ’80s, as Walkmen chewed through cell after cell. Today, a better match up is the one between their rechargeable batteries.
Because I rarely drive these days, I still roll around in a car I bought 8 years ago. It runs fine, but sooner or later it is going to quit on me. I’ll tell you what though, in my situation, the new addition to Duracell’s Powerpack linuep looks like peace of mind in a lunch pail-sized box. In addition to jump starting your car, it can power up AC, DC and USB-powered electronics (340 W continuous / 450 W peak). It even has a voice feature that informs you on the estimated runtime for devices that you plug in as well as instructions on how to use its vehicle jump starter and air compressor (150 psi). All-in-all, the 450 looks one seriously useful device for your $US150.
