A Pakistani builds a power bank which charges a phone in 14 minutes

WEB DESK: Tired of your phone running out of battery just before an important phone call or Skype meeting? ‘Flash Pack’ is here to save your daily struggle. It charges a battery full in just 14 minutes.

A 23-year-old, Abdullah Soomro has invented a power bank called Flash Bank. This power bank packs up enough power by one hour charging to last for one and half charge of an iPhone 6S.

Flash Pack is currently under development with a fully functional prototype and will be shipping to early backers by June 2016, according to a press release.

Talking about the inspiration behind this idea, Soomro thinks that productivity cannot be limited to the distance from a wall socket. He started working on the prototype as a hobby, but when he discovered that no such product existed in the market, he decided to turn it into a full time development project.

“Flash Pack is small, it’s handy and easy to carry around and charges in a flash – just under quarter of an hour.” Said Soomro.

After 6 months of intense testing, development and several prototypes, he is ready to launch the product through a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.

Soomro is looking to raise about 30,000 USD to fund the initial tooling and manufacturing for the first batch of Flash Pack, and with manufacturers in China already up to speed on the manufacturing plan, Flash Pack will reach all early backers in June 2016.
