The team behind the Lifepowr A2, a massive 27,000mAh battery pack with an AC outlet has returned with a new-and-improved battery pack that features USB-C. The Lifepowr A3 still comes in at 27,000mAh (allowing it to be stored in carry on luggage on flights), but comes with two USB-C ports featuring Thunderbolt 3, Quick Charge 3.0, two USB-A ports that also support Quick Charge 3.0, and the AC socket.

All five ports can be used simultaneously, and the company says the A3 can be recharged to 50 percent in under an hour (using a 60W charger) and fully recharged in under three hours. LifePowr is also selling a solar panel that can recharge the A3, which may be helpful for outdoorsy people or those averse to recharging their devices in a Starbucks.

You can back the A3 on Indiegogo today for as low as $159. The A2 is currently $239 on Amazon, which means $159 is likely a considerable discount from the final price of the A3. While Lifepowr has crowdfunded and shipped a product before, you should exercise the same caution you normally would with a crowdfunded product. The company says the A3 will ship in November.
