We never thought a portable battery will fail us, but in reality, it will if exposed to extreme elements and drops. The solution? Ruggedized it, of course, such as what Scosche did with its latest backup battery, which the company calls goBAT 6000 Rugged Portable Backup Battery. As far as toughness is concerned, Scosche did not make empty claims. The juice pack is in fact IP68 rated, sealing it against dust and water (waterproof up to 3 meters or 9.8 feet), and is built to MIL-STD-810G standard to survive drops and shocks. Cocooned within rugged enclosure is a 6,000 mAh battery pack that’s good for up to three charges for most smartphones.

Also built into its charging circuitry is a 12W/2.4A power that automatically detects the fastest possible charge speed for your connected device so you can it topped in the fastest possible time. A couple of other worthy mentions include a multi-colored LED indicator that displays remaining battery power level and a metal alloy loop that works with the supplied carabiner for securely clip to your backpack or belt.

The Scosche goBAT 6000 Rugged Portable Backup Battery comes in black and is available through Scosche online store for $69.99 a pop. If black isn’t your cuppa, there’s a Realtree collaborative edition, dressed Realtree Xtra pattern against a bright orange backdrop, with the same asking price. If you ask us, we’d go for the Realtree version, as it will be easier to spot in the event we dropped it in somewhere dark. Just saying…
