A Pikachu themed powerbank? This was a collaboration that was bound to happen. It was simply a matter of time and with who.
The honour would have to go to OPPO in securing this deal to emblazon the most famous electric type Pokemon all over their new range of accessories for the OPPO R17 Pro.
The Pikachu themed power bank has a battery capacity of 10,000 mAh with a single output port and a USB-C input port for charging. OPPO’s SuperVOOC technology touts itself in being able to juice supported devices from empty to 40% in just 10 minutes. Sadly, the operative word here is supported devices and pretty much only OPPO’s mobile phones will be compatible with the tech. Otherwise, this powerbank will function like any regular device.
At the same time, brand new Pikachu themed cases for the OPPO R17 Pro will soon be available as well which looks pretty decent in pictures but we’ll have to see how it feels in hand. Our suspicion would be that the product might be a tad plasticy.
Available from 11 November 2018 onwards, the cases will be priced at 149 Yuan for the cases which the Pikachu powerbank will be available at 399 Yuan. No word if these products would officially make its way outside of China.
