Keeping the connected traveller ‘connected’ usually involves portable power.  Such is the significance of power banks these days, many luggage brands build them (or at least the cabling) into their products, airlines have restrictions on the capacity and the market is packed full of options!

Swift One USB-C Power Bank

With so many of our devices needing to be powered throughout the day, as travellers, we require something light enough to carry, yet big enough (in capacity) to keep items charged!

NexX is a start-up company, currently seeking support on Indiegogo for their very slick-looking and powerful new device, the Swift One.

Features

The big focus here is the elegant styling that hides away a very powerful and multifunctional power bank.  The aluminum body looks great in either of the two colour options, Infinite Gray or Deep Blue.  But it’s whats inside that counts!

Firstly, the Swift One is accepted on commercial aircraft.  Some power banks are not!  The common rule is that any power bank over 27,027mAh needs approval from your airline before boarding.  Any device over 43,243mAh is not allowed on board.  Any below 27,027mAh are fine.

With that said, many manufacturers will be sure to come in under this limit, so what is it they need to do to set themselves apart from the competition?  Well, multiple charges per device along with the capability to charge several devices at the same time is a good start, and one NexX has gone all in on!

“…if the Swift One can deliver on these quoted charge times, it will soon become a companion for many travellers!” ~ {Tech} for Travel.

The Swift One has 3 charging ports; 1 x Quick Charge, 1 x USB-C Power Delivery, 1 x Swift+ USB.

The different charge ports provide you with cover for all of your devices.  From your Smartwatch or bluetooth headphone in the 12w Swift+ port up to the latest USB-C charged laptops, nearly every device is covered.

A single, fully charged Swift One can recharge the latest Smartphones up to 9 times or deliver a full charge to a MacBook Pro.
