A power bank can get obsolete. Although it will take a while before new charging technologies make it obsolete. When that happens, you will likely have to send it to a battery recycler. Well, not if your power bank is the Sharge “The Wandering Earth 2” Internet Host Key Power Bank.
As the product name implies, Sharge “The Wandering Earth 2” Internet Host Key Power Bank is a power bank that is also a prop replica. In the film, this gadget is key to restarting the Internet that will enable the ten of thousands of so-called “Earth Engines” to be in sync.
The power bank features a lot of details, including buttons and labels, that make it worthy of a collectible. Like the device in the film, it has a digital display. This display offers at-a-glance information like remaining charge, discharge time, as well as input and output in watts.
In addition, you can generate random passcode like in the movie by pressing the “GENERATE” button on the power bank and hitting “CONFIRM” to stop the random number generation.
The Sharge “The Wandering Earth 2” Internet Host Key Power Bank offers three interfaces allowing it to support multiple-device fast charging. There is a USB-A port, a USB-C port, as well as an integrated USB-C cable.
There are two versions: a 40 W and a 130 W version. The 40 W model packs 37.96 Wh capacity (about 10,400 mAh) and is suited for charging phones and tablets. The 130 W model, on the other hand, features a 72 Wh (about 20,000 mAh) battery and is capable of charging a laptop, a tablet, and a phone simultaneously.
The USB-C port on the 130 W model is capable of outputting up to 100 W of power, allowing it to juice a laptop. The USB-A and USB-C cable supports fast charging and can be used to charge a phone and a tablet. The USB-A and USB-C cable has a max output of 30 W when only one port is used.
The power bank further features Sharge’s third-generation battery protection system that includes input-over-current protection, output-over-current protection, over-temperature protection, overvoltage protection, static protection, and short-circuit protection.
Moreover, the enclosure is mostly made of VO-grade fire retardant PC material with the exception of the USB-C port section, which is metal alloy. The USB-C port also benefits from a dust cover.
Sharge has already started taking pre-orders for the “The Wandering Earth 2” Internet Host Key Power Bank in China since April. The 40 W model sells for 299 yuan and the 130 W goes for 999 yuan. Meanwhile, Sharge will be offering the power bank internationally through Indiegogo. However, exactly when and for how much is not clear. You may sign up to be notified when the campaign goes live.
