Samsung launches new 5100 mAh Fast Charge Portable Battery Pack


Samsung recently released a brand new Fast Charge Portable Battery Pack that's compatible with USB, microUSB, and USB Type-C devices (cable and adapter included in the box). The battery pack - model number EB-PG950 - includes a 5100 mAh battery, so it can provide at least 1 full recharge to any compatible smartphone. The accessory also features an LED power indicator, and a built-in strap for easy carrying.

Obviously, Samsung presents the new battery pack as being an ideal accessory for its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ flagships, despite the fact that the promo video embedded above only shows a Galaxy S7 edge. The battery pack can charge an S8 or an S7 "up to 1.5x faster" than standard USB charging options - this is also true in the case of other handsets compatible with Samsung Fast Charge, including all of Samsung's recent high-end phones (starting with the Galaxy S6 family and the Galaxy Note 4).

The new Samsung Portable Battery Pack is available in two color variants - navy and silver - and costs $59.99. Interested? If you are, you can buy the accessory from Samsung or Amazon via the source links below.
