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

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure.

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.

Pricing + Availability

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