BRAVEN BRV-Bank Portable Rugged Backup Battery

Braven BRV-Bank: A Smart, Rugged Portable Power Bank for Travelers

We’ve long been fans of BRAVEN’s entire line of badass rugged portable products. Now, they’ve taken the staid, now-ubiquitous backup battery and made it even … awesomer.

The new BRAVEN BRV-Bank is “the world’s first Bluetooth-enabled, USB controlled ultra-rugged power bank”. A mouthful for sure, but the gist is that it’s designed to take one helluva beating – ideal for the modern digital nomad’s life on the road.

BRAVEN BRV-Bank Portable Rugged Backup Battery

Features include:

  • Shockproof and waterproof design that meets MIL-STD 810G and IPX5 specs respectively. Can withstand just about anything you throw at it, including dust, debris, water and shock
  • Bluetooth Smart technology with a Remote Battery Monitor mobile app to monitor battery levels and control the USB ports
  • Dual USB ports with a total 3.4A output to charge two devices simultaneously
  • Includes a wrist lanyard, ruggedized, cloth wrapped USB cable and USB flashlight
  • Compatible with almost any USB-charged smartphone on the market, plus MP3 players, tablets, GoPro cams and other devices

We’re hesitant to call it a mere “backup battery” because it’s more than that. At nearly $130, it ain’t cheap. But it’s likely the last and only device of its kind you’ll ever need to buy.

Available now in Black/Cyan or Grey/Red color combinations directly from for around $130 (USD).
