Occasionally I see some interesting travel related products being crowd funded that I think you guys might be interested in. We’ve talked about the Tropicfeel travel shoe, the Cleansebot bacteria killing robot, and the AirThrone travel lounger, among others. Here’s a few of the travel related crowd funded projects that I’ve seen.

Today I wanted to talk a bit about the SuperTank phone charger, which bills itself as a 27,000 mAh portable charger capable of charging your phone for a week and rapidly recharging your phone. It was on Kickstarter but has now transitioned to Indiegogo.

SuperTank phone charger features
This same project has the SuperTank phone charger as well as the SuperPort4, which is a similar desktop charger. The 2 are similar and are designed to complement each other and be used together. Here are a few pictures of the SuperTank phone charger and SuperPort 4 desktop charger
Some examples of what you can charge with the SuperTank charger (and for how long)
One nice feature is how long the SuperTank will hold its charge, unlike many other chargers which lose their charge quickly if they’re not used.
The SuperTank has dual USB-C PD (100W + 60W) & dual USB-A ports.
SuperTank phone charger video
Here’s a video showing off some of the different options and features of the SuperTank phone charger
SuperTank phone charger backing levels and cost
The SuperTank phone charger is on Indiegogo and has currently raised over USD$890,000. Here are a few of the levels that you can back the project at
- $69 for one SuperPort 4
- $134 for one SuperTank
- $199 for one SuperPort 4 and one SuperTank together

Again, here is the link to back the SuperTank phone charger – they are currently already shipping most of the orders.

I may be mistaken but just earlier today in china I believe I saw a limit to the amount of capacity a portable charger can have. I don’t remember the number. But it definitely was not over 27,000.
In regards to what you can fly with their websites says it is within the threshold. From what I researched 27,000 is the max
I backed this a few days ago after reading an article on the verge. Definitely worth it. I would say the best uses are travel and festivals. Trust me as someone who does both frequently this will be an essential product.
What is the nearest product on the market already on Amazon?
