Kenu announces BingeBank, a powerbank/phone stand combo

Kenu, a car mount brand for smartphones, has announced its first powerbank product: the $59.95 BingeBank, an all-in-one wireless charging powerbank complete with a nanosuction phone stand. 

It holds your Qi-enabled phone at a viewing angle for watching videos, while wirelessly charging it at the same time. The BingeBank also works as a travel charging dock. The 10000 mAh capacity adds up to 35 hours of viewing time to the iPhone XS, and in addition to wireless charging, you can use a cable to fast charge two other devices through the 18W Power Delivery and Quick Charge USB ports.

The nanosuction phone grip and the built-in kickstand together create a portable charging dock for landscape and portrait viewing. The nanosuction pad purportedly has millions of microscopic suction cups on its surface. Simply press your phone firmly against the pad to charge and hold your phone securely in place. 

The pad is compatible with the glass backs on wireless-charging phones and smooth, shiny cases. For non-compatible cases, included in the box is a minimal folding phone shelf that attaches to the pad. The kickstand is made of die-cast metal and folds away when not in use.

The integrated wireless charger works with all the latest Qi-enabled smartphones including the iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max, and the Samsung Galaxy S10 series, as well as the new Apple Airpods wireless charging case. The 18W Power Delivery USB-C port can fast-charge an iPhone up to 50% in as little as 30 minutes, and can also charge a MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air with Thunderbolt 3. Using the Quick Charge 3.0 USB port, you can fast charge compatible Android phones and tablets.
