When Braven launches a new speaker, they never do it half-heartedly. They’re usually laden with add-ons that go above and beyond what you’d expect. Now that they’re launching a portable battery, nothing has changed. The BRV-BANK gives you 6,000mAh of power to charge your USB devices. Combined, you can draw 3.4 amps at a time. The battery’s case is similar to that of its speaker cousins in the BRV line. It’s rugged, shockproof, and water resistant up to the IPX5 level. Even the Micro-USB cable has been toughened.
And if you think the features stopped there, you don’t know Braven. This battery is Bluetooth Smart-connected to an iOS and Android app for both monitoring, disabling one or both USB ports to conserve power, and additional features. There is an included USB flashlight and using that flashlight there are two alarm modes: SOS and Bear Mode. SOS is exactly what it sounds like, using the flashlight to send out ··· ––– ··· to let people know you’re in trouble. Bear Mode sounds an alarm if your cell phone is moved.
The BRV-BANK costs $129.99 and is currently shipping.

Provo, Utah June 23, 2014 BRAVEN announces the immediate availability of the BRV-BANK, the worlds smartest and first Bluetooth® Smart-enabled, rugged portable backup battery with 6,000mAh of power. The IPX5 water-resistant and shockproof BRV-Bank transforms into the ultimate outdoor companion through its proprietary app and rugged USB flashlight, and quickly charges even the most energy demanding tablets, smartphones, GPS or GoPro cameras with two USB outputs and a combined output of 3.4A.
BRAVENs BRV-BANK can be remotely controlled through its Remote Battery Monitor App, which offers users the ability to locate the Battery Bank, monitor its power levels, individually turn on and off each port to conserve power, and activate its two additional features: Bear Mode and S.O.S. The Bear Mode activates your smartphone’s motion sensor, sending signals to the bank to sound an alarm and activate the connected USB flashlight when your phone is moved. Turning on the S.O.S. mode activates the universal distress signal by sending a visual morse code for “S.O.S.” using the connected USB flashlight.
The BRV-BANK is designed for outdoor enthusiasts and should be inside every backpack or emergency preparedness kit, says Andy Fathollahi, Chief Executive. It has the power to charge all of your devices and the toughness and features to withstand anything Mother Nature throws at it.
The BRV-BANK comes with a variety of accessories, including a reinforced lanyard for hanging and easy carrying, a ruggedized microUSB cable for worry-free charging under the harshest conditions, and a convenient USB flashlight. BRAVENs Remote Battery Monitor App can be downloaded on the App Store and on Google Play.
The ideal companion for all outdoor adventures, the 6,000mAh BRV-BANK can fully charge most smartphones three or 4 times and is now available for $129.99.
