For everyone who is still struggling to keep up with the power needs of your mobile devices, The Pronto steps in to offer a solution for your power needs with just 5 minutes of charging. The Pronto looks like an exciting product and its on Kickstarter if you care to back it. We take a look at what the device promises to offer for power hungry mobile consumers.
Portable Battery Pronto
Portable batteries are getting better by the day. Take for instance, the Microsoft Portable Power DC-21. It promises to deliver up to 80% charge in just 3 hours and has a 6000 mAh powerbank that can hold power for more than 6 months. And if you run out of power on your mobile device as well as your portable battery, you can still do a recharge of both devices simultaneously through a chain function. But if that’s something that doesn’t interest you, here’s an exciting project that’s up on Kickstarter.
Its called the Pronto and it claims to be the fastest charging portable battery yet. In keeping with its name, the Pronto can deliver super quick charging in just 5 minutes. It sounds crazy, but tests on the iPhone 5 have proven that your phone is ready for the go in just 5 minutes and in just an hour, you can power 9 such devices. The developers claim to have a design that can make the Pronto charge up to 12 times faster than other batteries in the market today.
The Pronto will be available in 2 models; The 4500 mAh wielding Pronto 5 and the 13,500 mAh wielding Pronto 12. It comes with a smart charge chip that can charge your USB devices at its maximum rate of up to 2.4A. It is encased by a sturdy hard anodized aluminum cover and has a durable nylon strap that holds its protective cap down. The versatile strap can also be used as a carrying band or to secure the device to your gear. A couple of custom dials on one side indicate the battery capacity and how fast the device is charging. The protective cap acts both as a stand, when in use as well as a protective water resistant cover to the ports. The Pronto 12 is perfect for charging larger device like laptops and DSLR cameras and its dual USB ports supports up to 4.8 A combined power.
The Pronto Fast Charging Battery is live on Kickstarter at the moment and its project goal of $50,ooo has more than doubled in just the first three days of going live. 2 of its early bird pledges have already sold out, so if you’re keen on getting your hands on this one early, at a bargain price, you can take your pick of the remaining pledges.
