Moving on, the Qi charger will charge at a power level of 10W but there is also a limited power output of 7.5W for the necessary iPhone devices and the Apple watch timepiece will charge at a power level of 5W. The device as mentioned, also has the capabilities of a powerbank and the new PowerDrum comes along with a 3000mAh battery capacity which is quite low in all honesty as compared to the 10,000-20000mAh powerbanks which have now been made available in the markets all over the world, but it’s a start and you can bet, that we will see portable devices with a larger capacity for battery power very soon and well despite the low capacity you will be glad to see that the extra battery can still help you save the day.

Moreover, there is still now news on when the device will hit markets or what price it will launch at, but rumors suggest that the price will likely be around $99.99, but we will have to wait to be completely sure!
