Incase Announced a MacBook Pro Case with a USB-C Port, Cable and a Built-in 14,000mAh Battery
There's nothing more liberating than charging your device on the go without having to worry about them dying on you. Keeping that in mind, Incase has announced a new sleeve-style case for the MacBook Pro that features a built-in 14,000mAh battery and a USB-C port.
Meet the IconConnected Power Sleeve by Incase. Charge Your MacBook Pro or Other Gadgets on the Go Using the Built-in Battery.
Thanks to USB-C, you can charge up your notebook on the go using a battery pack without having to worry about proprietary ports or connections. This also opens up possibilities for some really cool accessories as well.
The IconConnected Power Sleeve by Incase is an accessory that might not be perfect, but the idea behind it is pure genius. See, apart from being a regular sleeve that protects your expensive MacBook Pro, there's a 14,000mAh battery built right into the case itself. There's also a USB-C port thrown in there too, which means you can charge up your notebook anywhere you like. If you flip the case around, you'll find a USB-A port too that allows you to charge any other gadget you might have on you, including an iPhone or iPad. The case even comes with a USB-C cable, so you don't have to buy more accessories to get the complete functionality out of the case.
While this sounds great and all, but there is a downside to the case. You cannot charge your MacBook while it is inside the case. You have to slide it out then connect the USB-C cable only. Not exactly a deal-breaker, but if you were hoping that this case can pull off that sort of thing, well, it can't.
Priced at $199, the case will be available for both the 13 and 15-inch models of the MacBook Pro. It will launch in the third quarter of 2018. This also means that there is a chance someone else will refine this idea before Incase does.
