October 19, 2017 | Product Brief | Romeo Power Technology, the energy storage technology company founded by engineers and designers from SpaceX, Tesla, Samsung, Apple, and Amazon, has introduced Saber, a new personal power pack designed to recharge any digital device at full speed. The company’s first consumer product is based on the same Power Technology used in Romeo’s electric vehicle and stationary battery packs.
Offering 86 watt-hours of power, Saber fully charges in two hours and will then recharge most laptops twice, a tablet two to four times or a phone more than 10 times, with a single charge. With its built-in inverter technology, the Saber power pack features a Variable AC, USB-C and two USB ports and can charge any device 90 watts or less, from a drone or DSLR camera to a mobile phone or a 85-watt laptop. Saber can charge up to four devices at one time, with no additional accessories required.
Saber is FAA-and TSA approved and its vent-free body is ultra drop and shockproof as well as dust and water resistant (IPX67), allowing consumers to use Romeo’s power pack in any climate. Powered by Romeo’s Battery Management System, and featuring a built-in inverter and advanced thermal technology, Saber is designed with multiple safety gates in place across both the firmware and hardware and a SafeCharge feature that knows what is plugged in and auto-adjusts output power for rapid, worry-free charging.
Its compact design is easy to take on the go, comfortably fitting into the water bottle holder of a backpack, travel bag or purse. The Saber app, that will be available on iOS and Android at ship, provides real-time information about the device, including charge status, port usage, and safety notifications.
