I just got irrationally excited about a portable battery, and I hope you will too. Anker is releasing a line of smartphone batteries and accessories branded for Pokémon Go players, and I just think they look sleek as hell. To kick things off, we have a gorgeous white line of PowerCore 10000 batteries.
Picture above is the PowerCore 10000 branded specifically for Team Instinct, with the legendary Zapdos silhouetted in a brilliant yellow across the battery. Of course there are separate versions for Valor and Mystic, and you can find all three versions and their respective designs in the gallery below.
The PowerCore 10000 would be my battery of choice. I bought one a while back for my Nintendo Switch, and I never knew I needed it so badly until I spent a week with it. It holds a lot of juice; It charges my Galaxy smartphone quickly in a pinch; It kept my Nintendo Switch at 100% battery for an entire flight from Nashville to Los Angeles while I played Breath of the Wild. This battery is so compact and so versatile, and if you're going to be out for long sessions of Pokémon Go, either hunting legendaries (soon!) or holding down your gym, you and I both know that it won't be long before you need a little extra juice.
Anker is also releasing 5200 mAh batteries branded Pikachu yellow and Charmander red. These batteries are actually entire yellow and red and look fantastic. You can see those in the gallery as well. These are a little cheaper, but hold less juice.
Then there's this lovely speaker. Look at it! It's a Pikachu speaker! This Bluetooth speaker is labeled on Inside-Games as the "SoundCore." Why on earth they didn't take this opportunity to call it a "Pika-Speaka" I'll never know, but it looks adorable anyway. Additionally, there are two Eevee slim-shell phone cases on the way, and you can find those crammed into the gallery below as well!
There's no word yet as to whether or not these products will come to the states. We reached out to Anker for clarification, and we'll let you know what they say.
