Hardware Pick: Mophie Powerstation 8X
Rene Ritchie's pick of the week on MacBreak Weekly 521 is the Mophie Powerstation 8X. This is a slim and more fashion-conscious battery that closely matches Apple's device colors -- including Rose Gold. It's made with a durable and lightweight aluminum finish.
The Powerstation 8X has two USB ports for charging two devices simultaneously. The capacity is 15,000mAh, which Mophie claims is enough to charge a smartphone battery 8 times. It has a 15W charging input and output that identifies the device's power needs and can deliver the most optimal charge. The Powerstation 8X also has priority charging, where it will charge the device that's plugged in before charging itself.
The Mophie Powerstation 8X costs $149.95.
