External Power & Charging
OmniCharge Omni 20 ($$$)
If you travel often and want to use your computer on the go, your internal battery can become a problem. Unlike smartphones or tablets, there aren’t many battery banks that can support the portable charging of a MacBook or MacBook Pro.
Fortunately, the Omni 20 by OmniCharge is compatible with any Apple laptop thanks to its support offering a native 100W AC outlet and large 20,400 mAh battery. This means it can externally power virtually any consumer electronic, but you’ll still need to use your Apple charger to utilize this power bank properly for your MacBook.
Accessory supports: works with all MacBook and MacBook Pro models (standard wall charger required for use)
