The IconConnected Power Sleeve is a protective Macbook Pro case that features a built-in battery that can deliver a full charge to your Mac. Tucked at one end of the sleeve, is a 14,000mAh battery that can power two full recharges on the MacBook Pro.
On the inside is a small area that holds a short USB-C cable, so you’ll never find yourself caught without one when you’re on the go and away from a power outlet. The sleeve also includes a USB-A port to power other gadgets if you have any.
The IconConnected Power Sleeve is pretty awesome but there’s a bit of a downside to how you charge your device with it. You cannot charge your MacBook Pro when it is in the sleeve. If you expected to simply toss your Macbook inside the sleeve and drop it in your backpack for recharging, you’re not going to be able to do that.
Nevertheless, if you spend a lot of travel time during work, you’ll appreciate what this power packed sleeve can do for you.
The Incase IconConnected Power Sleeve will be become available in Q3 this year although a specific date hasn’t been announced. It will come in two variants – 13-inch and 15-inch, each costing $199.95.
That does sound like a costly proposition but for someone who regularly works on the go, it may be just what the doctor ordered.
