Volta, an OEM specializing in high-speed power accessories for smart devices, has announced that one of its latest products is to be the BOLT power bank. It is touted to offer up to 6 different charging modes at a combined potential total of 240 watts (W). It may launch alongside a smaller power bank pitched at iPhone 12- or 13-series users.

Volta is likely best known for its crowdfunding site-dwelling high-energy mobile device accessories such as the Spark or Giga GaN charger. Now, it has hinted at a number of new products, a high-capacity power bank that might sustain multiple charge-hungry phones and wearables at the same time.

The BOLT is projected to have a 25,000mAh typical capacity, housed in a large, brick-like form-factor with its own little OLED readout. It will boast 4 wired outputs: 3 USB type-C ports and 1 type-A. Of these, 2 of the type-Cs are rated to deliver up to 100W, even if used at the same time, while the remaining one is restricted to 20W for things such as iPhones.

The type-A port is similarly rated for a 22.5W output. The Volta BOLT also exhibits wireless charging - in fact, it has 2 such pads: one rated for up to 15W (again, intended for iPhones) and a smaller 2.5W circle for devices such as Apple Watches.

The (increasingly familiar-sounding) prospect in its entirety is thus touted as capable of delivering up to 240W of portable power, and simultaneously too (a claim that might require some testing). Besides this, VOLTA now hints that it might jump into the MagSafe-compatible power bank arena. 

However, its 10,00mAh version might stand out in the market due to an unusually wide range of finishes and patterns VOLTA is apparently currently assessing for its take on the genre. The OEM has yet to mention the wattage it will support via its "MagRing", although it asserts it will also work with Androids (although it just might not stick to the rear panel quite as well in that case).

Finally, VOLTA is now soliciting fan feedback on something completely different: the "Hand Brace", or a bracelet that converts into a USB type-C to type-A cable. The company has yet to reveal when any of these products will be on the market, however, even though it is already offering access to discount codes via a new Google Form.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
