We are always curious about the next big jump in battery power and the new Graphene batteries which are now starting to hit the market are certainly interesting. Charge ASAP is currently running an Indiegogo campaign to bring to the market a new power bank using Tesla Graphene batteries that can output a combined output of 150W of power and has several other innovative features.
As on the go photographers, we need power all the time, either for our camera, laptop, smartphone, sound recorder or any one of our countless accessories. Finding the right power bank out of the endless options on the market isn’t simple though.
The new Flash brings to the table not only 20,000mAh of extremely capable Tesla Graphene batteries (which should last several times more than existing batteries in terms of charge cycles) but also USB-C Power Delivery 3.0 port, dual USB-A ports and a wireless charging pad and you can use all of them together (to be honest we would prefer dual USB-C ports but that apparently isn’t easy to do).
The unit itself can charge to 80% in only 35 min so if you are in a rush (in an airport for example) you can still quickly charge it and have over 2/3 of your battery ready for your next flight (it is flight safe by the way).

The Flash can provide 100W over USB-C using Power Delivery 3.0 charge 18W USB-A Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 port and a specially designed USB-A port that’s compatible with Huawei, Oppo, OnePlus and Vivo’s proprietary fast charge technology as well as a powerful 10W wireless fast charge pad that also supports 2.5W Apple Watch charge.
The unit is made from aluminum, has a led indicator with numbers to tell you how much battery you still have and the Graphene technology inside means that charging is done in much lower temperatures so no overheating and no risk.
Charge ASAP has already successfully completed six other campaigns – all related to power banks and cables. At the moment the Flash is offered on Indiegogo for just under $140.
