You’re at the airport. You’re trying to finish up sending that last work email before the sweet reprieve of a weekend vacation, but your laptop is dying. There are no open power outlets in sight, and it’s a race against the clock. We’ve all been there. The answer, seemingly, is carrying a portable battery charger, but most portable chargers that can power a MacBook Pro are large and unwieldy — not exactly carry-on material. Thankfully, EcoFlow is here to change that. The brand, known for its ultra-high-capacity portable battery chargers, just released the River Rapid, a pocketable power bank that will extend the life of your MacBook Pro for an extra 50 minutes.
Thanks to a USB-C PD (power delivery) port, you can use your OEM MacBook charging cord to pump power into your MacBook at 18W. The River Rapid offers a 5,000mAh capacity and is also ideal for charging cell phones or tablets. It’s available today for $50, which is a small price to pay for peace of mind.
