It looks like Asus is preparing to expand into the portable power station market. 

On Tuesday, the company’s Republic of Gamers brand teased the “Mjolnir,” giving users the ability to game even when no electrical outlet is available. 

The company’s teaser image doesn’t explicitly say what the device is. But the Mjolnir is outfitted with four electric outlets, two USB-C and two USB-A ports, along with a panel that displays the battery life and the power output.

The product is also no joke, according to Asus’ social media post of the device. “IT’S REAL GAMERS! Can you guess what feature we’re gonna add to complete your gaming experience?” the PC maker added. 

The company didn’t reveal anything else, such as price or launch date. But the array of ports suggests the Mjolnir can power several laptops or an entire desktop rig. The product’s name is also a play on the comic book character and Norse thunder god, Thor, who uses the Mjölnir hammer as a powerful weapon that emits electric bolts.

Interestingly, Asus’s Mjolnir product also features a handle in the center, allowing the user to wield it like Thor’s hammer. (In 2018, Asus also launched Thor power supply units for desktop PCs.)

The company plans on revealing more at the Computex trade show in Taiwan this June. Whether they’ll be much of a market for the device is questionable. But it seems Asus sees demand for a power station to help consumers game anywhere, even outdoors or during a power outage.
