Tesla's Desktop Supercharger is the desk charger your phone deserves

On Friday, the automatic electronic auto maker company Tesla now launched a power bank into the platform of iPhones and Android phones with a pricing of $45. The Tesla powerbank features a USB, a microUSB and Apple lightning ports. The new Powerbank, available on Tesla's website, is powered by the same 18650 cell used in the Model X and S vehicles, though the cars use more than a single cell, of course. The company did make sure that it absolutely looks a product from Tesla. The device which measures 108 x 30.5 x23.3 mm has is housed in a cylindrical body.

The Tesla Powerbank comes with USB, Micro-USB, Apple Lightning and detachable connections, to be able to charge a variety of devices. Road warriors and commuters who are away from a wall socket will have to invest in multiple Powerbanks or simply buy an external charger with a larger capacity.

In addition to the portable battery, Tesla also added a Desktop Supercharger to its storefront which in essence is a miniature Supercharger for your mobile device.

Last week, Tesla announced a brand new version of its Roadster sports auto, which is capable of reaching 60mph, from a standing start, in just 1.9-seconds. Tesla notes that the accessory was modeled off of the same 3D CAD data used to manufacture the actual Supercharger. The Powerbank's design is based off Tesla's Supercharger monument found at the Tesla Design Studio, and while the price is pretty high considering the mAh count and lack of USB-C, it also looks wickedly good. The truck has a mile range of 500.
