It seems like very time we turn around, portable power banks are increasing not only in size but also in functionality. The same is true of the latest power bank to hit Indiegogo: the Omni Ultimate from Omnicharge.
“We wanted to take portable power to the next level for today’s on-the-go professional,” said Jason Wong, CEO of Omnicharge. “As devices become more powerful, they require a higher capacity battery strength and that’s what we’ve developed with the Omni Ultimate. No other product on the market provides the extensive set of features we’ve put into the Omni Ultimate and with the interchangeable battery option, people will never need to search for another power source again.”
The Omni Ultimate, designed for business travelers, photographers, filmmakers, drone users, and outdoor enthusiasts, is FAA-approved and can power five devices at the same time. Containing 12 high-power UL-certified 18650 lithium batteries, this portable power bank features a DC output with adjustable voltage and amperage, AC outlet, USB-C port, and two Qualcomm Quick Charge ports.
The unit can also be charged via AC or solar panels and has a real-time OLED display keeping the user up to date on incoming and outgoing power, temperature, and remaining capacity. It is also splash- and dust-resistant.
Omni Ultimate’s main features include:
- AC Outlet: 120W Pure Sine Wave
- DC Output: 150W
- Adjustable Voltage & Amperage
- USB-C In/Out: 60W
- 2 x USB-A Ports: 5V/3A per port

Fully funded — having reached almost $600,000USD of their $50,000 goal — there are still some Early Bird Perks available at $299USD (for the U.S. version), 50% off the MSRP of $599. The international version has an Early Bird price of $329 which includes VAT. Backers can also add a Protective Case and additional spare battery to their orders. Shipping is anticipated for January 2019.
As with any crowdfunding campaign, there is a risk supporting them. We’ve recently heard about several that we’ve written about that have failed or are having issues. Our reporting on Indiegogo campaigns does not mean we support or are affiliated with them. Support at your own risk.
