Future Tech: 

Ultrapak charges your phone in 15 minutes

'My battery died' won't count as an excuse anymore

‘My battery died’ won’t count as an excuse anymore

In a tech world that never sleeps and never settles, every week sees the release of a new phone, an app or a gadget that aims to shock and awe the crowds. Amidst all the gizmo action one thing remains unchanged – the need for more battery life.

UNU’s Ultrapak might just be the promise land for all of us tech lovers. This battery pack for smartphones and tablets can deliver a full charge to devices after just 15 minutes of charging itself up.

This essentially means that as long as you carry your Ultrapak, you are 15 minutes away from not stressing about running out of battery again.

In comparison to current solutions, a standard iPhone 5S can take anywhere from an hour to two hours to charge from a traditional wall socket, which isn’t ideal when you’re on the go and have no time to spare.

UNU said the Ultrapak’s ‘super-powers’ are due to “Ultra-X” technology, a special type of A+ lithium battery that increases the normal battery charging speed by 8 times. This makes the device “the world’s fastest self-charging battery pack,” according to UNU.

Each Ultrapak comes with an LED screen that displays both a percentage number and a battery graphic showcasing how much power is left in the battery. The chargers are made from rubber and include a flashlight, probably for all the times when you need to charge your phone in the dark.

Ultrapak comes in two versions: the Ultrapak Tour ($99.99), the larger 10,0000mAh version with a dual USB port, and the Ultrapak Go ($59.99), the smaller 3,000mAh version. Both versions are available for preorder, and will ship to customers on August 24.
