The Chargeasap Flash Pro Plus is for those who want a single battery that can replenish all their gear. All at once. It holds 25,000mAh and can charge a MacBook at up to 100W though USB-C, and has three other ports. But that’s just the start, as there’s a built-in MagSafe iPhone charger and an Apple Watch charger, too.

The power pack went through a round of crowdfunding but has moved past that stage. It is available to order now.

Chargeasap Flash Pro Plus packs in the features

The just-launched external battery sports three USB-C ports and one USB-A port. It can take on a 16-inch MacBook Pro, a 13-inch MacBook Pro and an iPhone 13 Pro — all at the same time and charge at maximum speed

Add in the two wireless charging ports, it can replenish six devices at once. Speaking of which, the Chargeasap Flash Pro Plus supports MagSafe so it can wirelessly juice up the iPhone 13 or iPhone 12 series at up to 15W. It can send 5W to Apple Watch.

The accessory includes a 1.3-inch OLED display. It is “the world’s first power bank to display real-time charging volts and amps, so a user will know exactly how fast the various devices are charging,” according to the developer.

And the power bank’s Lithium Polymer Graphene Composite Battery Cells themselves charge quickly. Chargeasap promises that its accessory gets to 80% (20,000mAh) from empty in 45 minutes. A full charge takes 1 hour and 10 minutes. This is with a 100W charger.

Of course, all this isn’t going into a pocket-size device. The Flash Pro Plus is 6.2 inches by 3.4 inches by 1.1 inches, and weighs 1.3 pounds. But its 25,000mAh/92.5Wh capacity is enough to more than fully change a 13-inch MacBook.

The Flash Pro Plus is now available to purchase from the Chargeasap website. It costs $319 — not an unusual price for a full-featured power bank.

A top competitor is the Intelli ScoutPro. It has most of the same features and regularly sells for $349. But you can get it for $159 from the Cult of Mac Store.
