Nomad has released Pod Pro, an enhanced version of its popular Pod Apple Watch power bank. With newly added Lightning cable, the battery pack not only supports your watch, but also charge your iOS devices on the move.
The Pod Pro is a powerful and versatile portable charger that measures 98mm diameter by 29mm height and weights 182g. As shown in the images, the power bank shows off a minimal and compact design with a low-profile finish so you can easily take it with you anywhere or use it on your desk.
Same as previous Pod, the Pod Pro works with Apple Watch’s MagSafe charger, but it features two powerful magnets on its anodized aluminum case in order to hold your Apple Watch cable in place and maintain a tight grip. And compared with Pod’s 1,800mAh rechargeable battery, Pod Pro comes boasts a high-capacity 6,000mAh backup battery that can offer more energy for your smartwatch.
Moreover, Pod’s USB-C port has been replaced by a 24cm Lightning cable, with its 2.1A output, the cable can be used to charge your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. When not in use, an inbuilt magnet holds the Lightning plug in. The power bank is recharged by its integrated microUSB port. When plugged in an AC outlet, the Pod Pro may also work as a desktop charging station for your watch and phone, and its DuPont Versollan TPE rubber base keeps your smartwatch securely on the desk.
