The ROG Mjolnir Portable Power Station Is ASUS’s Latest April Fool’s Joke (But It’s Real)

Remember when ASUS unveiled the ROG Ally on April Fool’s Day last year, and it took everyone a few days to figure out that it was a real thing? The company is back at it again – this time by introducing the appropriately designed ROG Mjolnir portable power station that looks exactly like Thor’s hammer.

Unlike the ROG Thor which powers your PC, the ROG Mjolnir is designed to power everything (although PC technically counts, too). From the image posted by ROG’s X (Twitter), the portable power station is seen featuring four AC outlets, two USB-A ports, and two USB-C ports. There’s also a digital display above that displays the total power output and the battery runtime.

Ports aside, the most eye-catching part of this supersized battery pack is the “handle” – it’s unlikely to be an actual handle given the weight of the batteries, though. Assuming this is not a purely cosmetic part, one can assume this acts as a detachable flashlight that docks onto the main unit for the looks. Having it detachable also greatly helps with storage – you don’t want that thing to stick out brazenly inside your car’s boot when you’re packing lots of stuff.

While ASUS hasn’t specified any details on the specifications like battery capacity, we should be able to learn more soon as the company is bringing their latest April Fool’s creation to the upcoming Computex 2024, which will be held in early June this year.

Pokdepinion: Perhaps someone out there may try to lift this Thor’s hammer – come to think about it, brilliant name, ASUS.
