On the heels of launching its Qi wireless charger adapter for AirPods last week, Hyper has unveiled what it’s claiming to be the “world’s most powerful USB-C battery pack. Going for the crowdfunding approach with this launch, Hyper is giving Kickstarter backers the opportunity to get up to 50% of the HyperJuice external battery that puts out 178W of power.

Just launched today, the new HyperJuice USB-C battery pack has already hit its $100,000 goal in a matter of hours. With a suggested retail price of $299 once the crowdfunding campaign is over, Hyper is offering the 27,000 mAh battery to 500 backers for $149, and to another 1,000 for $179.

Specs

  • Two USB-C PD ports (100W + 60W output)
  • 100W USB-C port is both input and output (charges in about an hour)
  • One 18W QC 3.0 output USB-A port
  • 27,000 mAh capacity
  • Can recharge 15-inch MacBook twice
  • Can simultaneously charge MacBook Pro, iPad Pro, and iPhone
  • Aluminum build
  •  Airline safe

While there are always risks with crowfunding campaigns, Hyper has a solid track record with successfully bringing quality Apple accessories to market. It plans on delivering the first 27,000 mAh HyperJuice battery packs to backers in November.
