Power bars, where you charge multiple devices on a single power supply, have grown in popularity, but Quirky’s new Pickup Power is set to bring a removable large rechargeable battery to take your power on the go.

The Pickup Power includes three AC outlets and 3 USB ports to do your standard charging, however, the 4,000 mAh battery is the real hook here.

The battery will always charge when docked, and also features fold out prongs if it needs to be charged elsewhere.

The battery features a USB charging port, allowing nearly any modern device to be charged through it.

There’s currently no price or availability attached to the Pickup Power, but Quirky has given the go-ahead for the Pickup Power to enter production.
