Whether you're fighting, fast talking, or sneaking your way through the galaxy you're going to need power to keep your personal communication device going during those unexpected outages or when you're stranded in an alien location with foreign charging ports.

Gear: Han In Carbonite MimoPowerDeck Star Wars Power BankUnlike Fyre Festival attendees, who seemed to think power manifests out of the ether like their trust funds, South Africans know a lot about the need to conserve power and have an emergency supply on hand due to load shedding and holiday adventures out in the bush or off in the wilderness.

You may as well do it stylishly and showcase your consumerist allegiance to the Star Wars franchise at the same time with the Han In Carbonite MimoPowerDeck Star Wars Power Bank by Mimoco, a US company that produces pop-culture and artist-edition USB flash drives and battery products. The power bank debuted at Star Wars Celebration 2017 and features the iconic pose of Han Solo trapped in carbonite, arguably Star Wars' most agonising moment until George Lucas made the prequel trilogy.

The Han In Carbonite MimoPowerDeck Star Wars Power Bank features a lithium-ion polymer battery and holds 8000 mAh of charging capacity (that's two to three times the battery capacity of the average smartphone) and it's suitable for all sorts of 5 volt electronics, including phones, tablets, e-readers, and digital cameras that have a Micro-USB receptacle. It can charge two devices simultaneous and the charging time is claimed to be five to six hours.

The power bank costs US$39.99, which is about R500 at the current exchange rate, and the package includes a Micro-USB to USB-A cable and a microfibre drawstring carry pouch.

You can buy it online through the Mimoco web site.
