At Rhynopack, they feel smartphones serve as the lifeline to the people, places and things we care about most. However, battery life is still an issue with these devices, now more than ever. Whether you’re on a road trip with the family, out running errands, or spending the day at one of Edmonton’s amazing festival, when your phone's charge drops below 20%, battery anxiety can knock you off your game.

Their mission is to keep people connected. To accomplish this goal, they’ve introduced the Rhynopack, a tough, powerful and versatile battery charger.

  • Rhynopack is tough.  With the EVA case, consumers don’t have to worry about their battery charger getting scratched, crushed or damaged when they’re on the go
  • Rhynopack is powerful. One model will keep a user’s phone charged for ~5 days
