The new power banks feature images of four species of endangered animals and come in two sizes - two that offer 8,400 mAh and two with a capacity of 11,300 mAh.

Samsung announced yesterday a set of battery packs that is part of the "Charge the Life" campaign, and each shows one of four endangered species. This campaign "aims to raise awareness about endangered animals" while offering a useful set of accessories for smartphones and phablets at the same time.

The Animal Edition battery packs come in two sizes - 8,400 mAh and 11,300 mAh. While the first one offers "more than three times the capacity of the new Samsung Galaxy S6 battery," the more powerful battery back is capable to charge the flat Galaxy Note 4 battery "more than twice."

The four Animal Edition battery packs that will soon hit the market show the lesser panda and the fennec fox (8,400 mAh each) while the larger capacity packs show the giant panda and the golden monkey. All feature a clear power level display and can charge two devices at the same time. A mobile app called "Charge the Life" that can be found on Google Play or Samsung Galaxy Apps displays the featured animal as it becomes more animated as charging levels increase.

Details regarding the pricing and availability of these accessories are not available yet.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
