Recharging a battery – and defending against attackers: the new VARTA Safety Power Bank delivers twice the security

Whether you find yourself in a dark park or an empty parking garage, poorly lit areas can make you feel unsafe. With the brand-new Safety Power Bank 2600 mAh from VARTA, not only can smartphones and MP3 players be recharged anywhere and anytime, an integrated alarm siren also provides additional safety for users against assault and harassment.

The compact and handy Safety Power Bank from VARTA is the world’s first Power Bank with personal protection features. With 2600 mAh, it provides enough energy to recharge a completely empty smartphone battery*. With dimensions of 11 cm in length and less than 4 cm in width, it fits in almost any clutch, purse or pocket. The handy Power Bank can also be worn comfortably around the wrist thanks to an integrated lanyard, which means that it is ready to hand at any time.

 

But that’s not all. The Power Bank has an integrated alarm siren and is additionally backed up with a strobe light on the bottom of the device; both can be activated by pulling on the handle. The shrill and extremely loud sound measuring 100 db and serves as a passive weapon − it frightens off assailants and draws attention to pedestrians to assist the attacked person in dicey or dangerous situations. To ensure reliable protection, the Power Bank always keeps 20 % of its capacity available for the alarm siren. Once the remaining capacity of 20 % has been reached, users are informed by an LED that turns red. At that point, the Power Bank will no longer be able to recharge any mobile devices, though it still always has a safety reserve to be able to trigger the alarm. The look of this light “power bar,” weighing in at 97 g, is a real highlight. Featuring the classic, refined colors of black and gold, the charger has a scratch-proof surface − for greater design, entertainment and safety while out and about.
