The ultimate combination of a power bank and charging cable.

The Portal Cord is the charging cable with batteries embedded within the cable, allowing it to also work as a portable charger.

Running out of battery is frustrating. Especially when you're out and there is nowhere to get charge.  

Power banks are bulky and require additional cords to keep your device and power bank charged.
