BASTRO, a portable power station, was developed with the upcycled batteries of electric vehicles; the most powerful but also the most compact batteries available. Most EV batteries end their usage life once they can no longer hold enough charge to run an electric vehicle. BASTRO gives them a second life as an accessory that facilitates outdoor living. The design began as rectangular parallelepiped EV batteries, which have been given an almost animate and futuristic appearance through the new casing; crouching tiger, flying spaceship. BASTRO is the first EV battery-upcycled product for end-users.
