Razer has announced the Power Bank. An uninspired name for a 12,800mAh power bank that’s capable of charging laptops – at least those capable of supporting USB Type-C connectors.
The Razer Power Bank features outputs over USB Type-A and Type-C connectors, giving it a slight advantage over similar products. The Type-C connector also allows it to provide power to the Razer Blade Stealth. According to Razer, this will provide an extra six hours of battery life to the Ultrabook. Interestingly, the product page says that this power transfer also works for just about any device that charges through USB Type-C.
It also supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 and Apple Fast Charge technology. Allowing the power bank to charge devices faster than other power banks are capable of doing. The Power Bank is capable detecting the type of charging capability of the connected device and adjust the voltage accordingly.
A massive 46Wh Lithium-ion battery lies at the heart of the Razer Power Bank. It charges over any of the USB ports, and is also capable of working with the Razer Blade Stealth’s USB Type-C charging adapter. Interestingly, Razer doesn’t say how long it takes to charge the Power Bank over regular connections. Although it claims a two hour charge time over the Blade Stealth charging adapter.
The Razer Power Bank is due to be released in March. Interested customers can already sign up to be notified for when it appears on the store. There’s no local pricing yet either, but expect it to cost around $150 (about RM667).
