Starting with the Powerstation Go Rugged Compact, it has an 8,100 mAh capacity with a USB-C input. It then has jumper cable outputs as well as two USB-A ports. A floodlight is also built into one end. It is available for $99.95 and is the cheapest of the lot.

More capable is the Powerstation Go Rugged AC with a 15,000 mAh capacity. There is a USB-C input with a jumper cable output alongside an AC output and two USB-A ports. The AC output is powerful enough for 65W of power.

The Powerstation Go Rugged AC retails for $149.95 from Mophie.

The Powerstation Go Rugged with Air Compressor retails for $159.95 and also has a 15,000 mAh battery with two USB-A outputs and a jumper cable output. It also has an integrated air compressor that can be used for full-sized vehicle tires, inflatable toys, bike tires, and more.

Rounding up the new gear is the $119.95 Powerstation Go Rugged Flashlight. This looks a bit like a traditional flashlight but packs a 9,900 mAh capacity. On the side is an emergency light and work light. It has a USB-C input to go with the jumper cable output and USB-A output.

Unfortunately, none of the new batteries offer native USB-C output.

    mAh is not a measure of energy and is of no use in comparing battery packs of unknown internal voltage. Watt-hour (Wh) is the proper metric.

    From Mophie's documentation:

    Powerstation Go Rugged AC: 29.9Wh
    Powerstation Go Rugged AC: 55.5Wh
    Powerstation Go Rugged AC with Air Compressor: 55.5Wh
    Powerstation Go Rugged Flashlight: 36.6Wh

    To be fair, Mophie also doesn't understand the difference between current and energy either, publishing a mix of mAh and Wh measurements, and making absurd typos, like...


    It looks like someone pointed out the mAh/Wh error to Mophie's website staff, who didn't quite finish the unit conversion and left the "m" in when switching from mAh to Wh. My Apple Watch battery holds about 20 times more energy than in Mophie's typo claim.
