Sanyo’s Eneloop Stick and Mobile Boosters will power your gadgets as you go
Sanyo announced the launch of a pair of power packs, starting as of October 21 in Japan.
The Eneloop Mobile Booster (model KBC-L2BS) and Eneloop Stick Booster (KBC-D1BS). The Mobile Booster is a rechargeable slab of lithium-ion with a pair of built-in USB terminals (and microUSB adapter) capable of pushing a relatively hefty 1 Amp charge for about 2 hours (or 500mA for 4 hours if charging two device) to gear that requires that kind of suck… like the iPad. The battery pack can then be recharged over AC or a USB connection on your PC.
The highly portable Stick Booster, meanwhile, ships with a pair of AA Eneloops — so when the electrons cease to flow you can just swap out the dead batteries for a pair of fresh rechargeables. The Stick Booster is also an official Nintendo licensee so you can be sure that it’ll charge your DSLite, DSi, or DSi LL (no mention of the 3DS).
