While the Exovolt Plus isn’t the first (and likely not the last) external battery pack for mobiles we’ve seen, it certainly is one of the most interesting. First off, we’ve got to give it props for looking different. The modern design isn’t just to look good or different though – it’s made that way to allow for stacking, letting you stack more battery packs for a larger battery capacity.
Other than the stacking design, it’s a pretty simple device. The Exovolt Plus is basically a battery pack that’ll let you charge your devices on-the-go. Specifically designed to charge Apple’s mobile devices (iPod, iPhone and iPad), the main unit houses a 5,200mA Lithium Polymer battery that can be charged using a microUSB port.
What makes it unique is the ability to add more packs. Exogear will also be selling separate ‘sub-units’ that stack on top of the main unit, essentially holding 5,200mA batteries themselves for people who need the extra capacity. Despite the made-for-Apple design, the kit will charge any other mobile device that charges via USB.
No word on availability yet (it’s currently listed as “coming soon”), but when it does, be ready to pay a premium. The Exovolt Plus main unit will cost $89.95, while each sub unit costs $49.95.
