This Apollo power bank would top up in 20 minutes, fast-charge the iPhone X

Not only is lugging around a huge power bank a chore, but the time it takes for them to recharge is also pretty significant. What if we had a smaller external battery pack that we could recharge faster more often, and it could bring our iPhone X or Galaxy S8 to 50% battery in 30 minutes?
Meet Apollo, the world's first portable power bank that is using graphene-based composite packs, supplied by CellsX. It is certified as USB-C Power Delivery gear both on the input and output ports, so it can be recharged with a USB-C 60W adapter, or charge gadgets with 40W, meaning that it can bring your iPhone X or 8 Plus to full charge in about hour and a half, instead of the usual three.
When you juice them about two times, all it takes is a 60W adapter to recharge the Apollo bank to full in 20 minutes, and you'll be good for another weekend of hiking away from the plug. Apollo's Kickstarter project got funded immediately, and early backers can have the graphene power bank shipped to them for $59 some time in the spring. Any takers?

Never use portable power bricks. Just don't have a need.

Yep agree I get a good 8 1/2 to 9 1/2 hours SOT with my note 8, just depends on what I am doing. No need for a portable battery pack.

Nice to see the graphene tech is finally reaching consumers. So much more efficient and safer than current options. I'm betting the richest company in the world will be among the last to incorporate this new tech into their products.
