Tesla Creates A Powerbank With Model S Battery Cell

Are you a Tesla fan and want everyone to know it? Well, we have found the perfect Christmas gift for you.

What we have here is a Powerbank designed by the electric automaker for your smartphone. Priced at $45, the Powerbank takes design inspiration from Tesla’s supercharger monument at the Tesla Design Studio.

Without a doubt the coolest thing about the Powerbank is that it features a single 18650 cell with a 3350 mAh capacity, exactly the same battery cell used by both the Tesla Model S and Model X. The only differences is that the Model S and X use about 7000 of them.

Additionally, the Tesla Powerbank is suitable for all recent iPhone models and micro-USB equipped smartphones thanks to its integrated cables.

Santa should expect to see tech-heads requesting the Powerbank in their droves.

      Only has room for 1 battery.

      get an anker or aukey with quickcharge (if your phone supports it). I can fully charge my s6 in around an hour over 5 times before it runs out with my 16000mah.

    MicroUSB rather than USB-C? It’s not a great look for a technology company when they support a standard that was superceded 3 years ago.

  • Annoyer

    about time for them to make profit
