This Compact But Powerful Battery Promises A Whole Extra Day Of Laptop Use

Serious travellers who need to stay connected when on the road know that a backup battery of some sort is a must-have travel companion. And it's no surprise that a battery pack named after one of the strongest animals on earth, a silverback gorilla, boasts that it can keep a laptop running for an amazing 14 hours straight.

The secret to the Powertraveller Silverback-Gorilla's charging prowess is a massive 60,000mAh battery inside that's able to output 240 volts through an AC socket. Depending on the device you need to power you can dial the battery all the way down to just 80-volts, at a range of 50 to 60Hz. Not surprisingly the Silverback-Gorilla weighs in at around 2.5kg so it's a little hefty, but at just over $450 it pretty much guarantees you won't be wanting for power between outlets.
