You know how a magazine-fed gun works? When the magazine is depleted of ammunition, you swap it out for a fresh mag. The MG’s Novi Multi-device Portable Charging Station works much like that. Instead of having just a portable battery which sometimes you may forget to recharge, Novi has eight ‘pods’ called Novi Pods, each packing 2,600 mAh of juice good for charging a device of similar battery capacity to full in just 1.5 hours. When one pod is depleted, all you have to do is to pop one fresh battery out from the docking station, set the empty one to charge and be on your way. Novi docking station is designed to recharge 8 pods simultaneously and without cable mess – thanks to MG’s LunaPulse Technology which charges Novi Pods on contact.
With Novi Multi-device Portable Charging Station, you will always have several power banks packed with juice, ready for deployment whenever you need it. Personally, I see it as an awesome solution for folks like myself as sometime I do forgot to top up the lone portable battery I own. Sure, you could own several power banks, but you will have to prepare to put up with bunch of cables and you probably don’t want that. With Novi Multi-device Portable Charging Station and Novi Pods, you will only have one cable to deal with.
Though you probably don’t need eight portable battery packs, but if you can more, why not? With so many power bank, an entire family could share them, or as MG suggested, you could turn it into a business opportunity too, like for example, renting out. However, it won’t be a money spinner. I can’t see how much renting out battery bank could reap you; perhaps more as a value-added service provided by businesses to their customers. Novi Multi-device Portable Charging Station is open for pre-order, starting at $285 a pop.
