Whether you’re traveling across the country or just across town, you’re bound to find yourself in a situation where wall outlets aren’t available when you desperately need to juice up your laptop or smartphone. To help ensure that all your devices have enough power until you get to your destination. You’ll find a range of options, including all-in-one powerhouses like the Omnicharge, MagSafe battery packs that pop right onto the back of your iPhone.
In this project we built a 300w 3D Printed Li-Ion Battery power Bank. Below is our objective for the project. Our goal for the project is to be able to 3d print a power bank with ac outlets that is easy to build and assemble. Below is our objective for the project.
- 3D Printed under 24 hours with only 7 parts
- Must be easy to build and use
- Must be easy for kids to learn
- Fully customizable with different power usage
- Must be practical and reliable
-3D Printed Part (You can print it yourself by downloading from our library or you can click here to buy the printed parts)

Schematics & Build
The assembly is simple and straight forward. The battery cells used in this project are NCR18650BE Panasonic with a 3.6v and 3.2ah. The Inverter comes with 2 usb ports, 2 ac outlets, and a fan. The li-ion battery cells and the bms have a 3D printed compartment that makes the pack easy to build.
