Charging adapters, am I right? They're so annoying to have to lug around, especially when you have carry several of them to keep all of your devices full. If only there was a single accessory that could do the work of multiple chargers...
Well, there is! Or more accurately, there can be, if ARROE's Indiegogo campaign ends up being successful. The London-based company is raising money for its LAER laptop sleeve, a carrying case that not only protects your laptop but also charges it and any other electronic devices you can throw at it. Phones, tablets, smartwatches, it can fill them all up, and at the same time.
The secret to its multiple charging capabilities is its massive battery—20,000 mAh to be exact—and various ports and adapters for transmitting power. These include a DC charging port; standard USB, USB-C as well as Quick Charging ports; a Qi wireless charging pad; and a handful of adapters and cables that you can use depending on what part of the world you're in.
A protective sleeve that also charges is great and all, but it's not exactly convenient to hold in your hands while traveling. To remedy that, ARROE is also offering a sling bag that fits the LAER sleeve snugly within it, making it much easier to carry around wherever you're going. The sling bag allows you to charge your phone wireless from its front pocket (if you have a compatible device, of course), so you don't have to pull the whole laptop sleeve out over and over.
The LAER laptop sleeve with a 20,000 mAh battery pack is available for a $140 pledge. There is also a cheaper, $100 tier that replaces the large battery with a much smaller, 5,000 mAh version—good enough for charging a phone but not a laptop. As of now, the campaign has met slightly over half of its $30,000 goal.
