If you’re on the east coast, you’re probably still half buried in snow and thinking about how awesome it would be to not have to dig out parking spots every time you go into the city. Well, good news — spring might still be a ways off, but at least we’re starting to see some springtime gadgets to remind us that yes, the weather will get better. Eventually.
The Piña external battery pack from Buqu is the most fun we’ve ever seen anyone have with what’s usually a pretty boring gadget. It’s shaped like a little pineapple, making them a fresh accessory that you won’t want to hide away in the depths of your bag (hence the carabiner attached to the top). The Piña isn’t just a novelty, though — it has a 3,350 mAh battery inside that should charge most phones at least once over and has a 2.4 A charging port that can quickly charge both tablets and smartphones.
The best part, though? The Piña battery packs are scented! Each one has a light tropical scent, and Buqu is making a bold claim — these packs are intended to retain their smell for the lifetime of the device. Pretty sweet deal!
But, you’ll need to wait for better weather to get your hands on one of these. Piña will be available in May at Best Buy stores in either classic pineapple (yellow with green leaves) or funky pineapple (turquoise with magenta leaves) for $30. Each device from Buqu comes with a lifetime warranty, too, which is a pretty sweet bonus.
