No matter how cool our technology is, without the means to power it up or charge its battery this state of the art technology becomes an expensive paperweight. Obviously, when we are at home or at work, power is available most of the time and yet what happens if the power fails or you are stuck out in the middle of nowhere? How do you charge your batteries then? Well there are portable chargers and this one is something a bit special, the X200 Power Hub can be charged by solar panels, through the car power point, mains power supply and when all else fails, the hand cranking feature.

You do not have to be an outdoor extreme sports type to find the X200 Power Hub useful, we were without mains power for three days once following a storm and when those battery levels start getting low, believe me the feeling of being cut off becomes a reality very fast. They are expecting to start selling this device from around May next year with a retail price from around $349, but get in early and save $50!
