In my mind, the majority of laptops generally fall into one of two categories. You have the thin and light machines that prioritize mobility (and hence battery life). And then you've got the desktop replacement rigs where performance trumps mobility. If you want the best of both worlds, it looks like the Razer Power Bank is coming to the rescue.
Just like the innumerable power banks we carry around for our smartphones, the Razer Power Bank is designed for USB-C powered laptops like the Razer Blade Stealth. If you want to keep gaming and don't have access to a wall outlet, this 12,800mAh battery will keep you going. In fact, Razer says it'll let you keep going for up to 15 hours.
In addition to its USB-C compatibility and standard USB-A for your smartphones, the Razer Power Bank also boasts the speedy Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 standard, just like we find on some desktop chargers. The CNC aluminum housing is pretty sweet too.
Pick up the Razer Power Bank on razerzone.com for $149.99 starting some time next month. And look, it can fit in your pocket too. The full press release is embedded below with more details.
