PMAG Style Phone Charger

Emerson, a Chinese airsoft gear company are converting a battery pack for a Kickstarter toy gun and re-shelling it as a PMAG. Click here to check out the kickstarter on the PP Gun.

Below is a photo of the battery pack for the PP Gun.

Below are pictures of the Emerson PMAG charger. It uses three 18650 li-ion cells. You must provide them.

 

According to this website on Weibo, these will be available at the end of February. While cool looking, im not sure walking around in public with a mag pouch and one of these open carried is a good idea. Although if you have a white USB cable constantly plugged into it, it might dispel fear and ignorance. But probably not a good idea to carry onto a plane. TSA might have qualms about this.

    What could possibly go wrong?

      The worst thing imaginable: It refuses to charge your phone.

      • billyoblivion

        The worst thing that could go wrong is that it exuberantly charges your phone.

        VERY VERY exuberantly.

        Then, in all the excitement catches fire itself.

        While on your waist.

          Samsung is giving you the “cool it” hands-motion.

    I still remember the SVD Mp3 player from way back yonder… damn I feel old.

  • Sunshine_Shooter

    I actually think this is pretty cool, in a funny way. Like tobacco or tobasco holsters made of kydex.

    • FulMetlJakit

      Can and can’t understand that that’s a thing.
      Sriracha OTOH…

    Protip: never mix and match 18650s from different brands in a multi-cell device. It’s not as dangerous if they are paralleled versus in series, but in general that’s how you have a very bad time of the on-fire variety.

      Hey, I’ve had a couple of those.. Comes with being a welder.. I’m going to have to use that quote..

  • Gary Kirk

    Every AR owner in California needs to get one and carry it, just for s+g..

    • TheNotoriousIUD

      Its all sh-ts and giggles until you run into a paranoid cop.

      Might end up perforated.

      • Martin M

        Yeah. Because you might throw a ‘clip’ at someone and cause a bruise, or something.

        Clearly a ‘ghost gun’ is involved because all I could see was the ‘clip’.

        • TheNotoriousIUD

          its a joke dude

    “But probably not a good idea to carry onto a plane. TSA might have qualms about this.”

    Don’t put it in your checked luggage, either. From what I understand, they want rechargeable lithium ion batteries to be carried on, not checked.

      The high lord commandeth, though shall not have hair detergent in high capacity!

  • Vizzini

    Seems unwise.

  • Anonymoose

    I always think people with huge honking phone holsters are open carrying when I first glance at them anyway. This would throw me for a loop.

  • CS

    The question remains: will it hold your bolt open?

  • Mike

    What a good way to annoy a liberal. A high capacity cell phone charger. Do they make a 10 round version for CA? Or a 30 round size that only loads 10 amps?

  • RicoSuave

    Does it come with the appropriate “mag” pouch for the busy road warrior ?

  • Badwolf

    Guns that look like toys. And now batteries that look like gun parts. Cool!!! What could possibly go wrong?

    A house full of guns, toys, batteries, etc all disguised as each other and all mixed up should be interesting.

    • Diane Cates

      Excellent points.

      There are several cases where cops had shot people (and kids) that were waving airsoft pistols because they so closely resembled real steel. Only Glock seems to make an effort to keep unlicensed toy copies of their firearms off the market, but it’s a hit or miss effort, depending upon the (in)competence of the drone in their ‘legal’ department.

      Having a nervous cop react in an unfortunate manner because the cop spotted a realistic magazine is not much of a stretch nowadays.

    If you notice there is two metal tab near the feed lips. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be used for the charging station.

    Regarding all the concern about carrying this in public, I think it’s really meant for airsoft players as a field charger while playing. The mistake of grabbing it while playing is left to the user to suffer, but it does fit in a mag pouch which is not in short supply on most airsoft outfits. One hopes you aren’t worried about your phone while in play.

    I think it’s going to be noticeably ABS plastic with only marginal fidelity to an actual PMAG, like the cheapest of knockoff things often are. I kind of wanted to cut up a PMAG to make one since it wouldn’t be difficult to hack up a plain usb battery’s case and combine the two, but the novelty is pretty much the only draw for me. The labor required would be fun, but a $15 PMAG plus a charger to make the same charger that I can’t carry around in NJ really limits the value. I bet you could fit 6x 18650 batteries in a PMAG, though. Or at least 9x 123A’s.
