More often than not, life takes you away from power sockets and USB ports. In these dire circumstances, the Mophie Powerstation XL should keep you connected.

This external battery has a monstrous 12,000mAh capacity, which is enough to refill most phones eight times over. It weighs just 11 ounces, and offers three charging speeds to suit every device you own. 

The battery has two USB outputs for charging smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, and other USB devices. Despite measuring just one inch thick, the battery holds enough juice to keep you connected for a week. The ports deliver 2.1 amps for power-hungry devices such as tablets, charging two devices simultaneously.

It can also throttle down to 1 amp or 500mAh for smaller devices, saving power. The Powerstation itself charges via microUSB, with an LED indicator showing how full the tank is.

This impressive backup battery retails at $129.95, but you can currently grab a refurbished Powerstation XL for $39.95 via the Daily Dot Store. These units come with a 90-day warranty, and the price includes free U.S. shipping. Order now to get your road-trip power supply, and be sure to choose the color option you prefer.
