Puku S8 is a Designer Battery Pack


There’s a study somewhere in the current tech industry product cycle. It would go something like innovation -> copying -> saturation -> fancy design. And then I guess back to innovation again, or something. I never said I was going to do the study.

Anyway, the point is, in the beginning, there were external battery packs, and they were good. Then everyone started making them. And that means one thing – now we get to start buying cool-looking external battery packs! The PukuS8 Charger goes for both style and substance, with a sleek, monochrome case (minimalism!) housing a fairly enormous battery. The battery is indeed no joke – you’re looking at an 8,000 mAh battery. According to Puku, that’s good for 1,149 hours of standby, 56 hours of talk time, or 153 of media playback. Or, more generally, it can charge the average smartphone five times over.

The Puku S8 Charger has two USB ports, and comes with a Micro USB cord, as if you needed another one. It’s available in purple, turquoise, red, lime green, cool gray, and blue, and you can pre-order one now for $70.
