Razer extends your game time with new mobile power bank

It's a bit pricey, but here's hoping -- unlike many power banks -- it works consistently with non-Razer laptops as well.

High-capacity power banks aren't new, but modern laptops can be finicky about third-party USB-C chargers.

Razer's new 12,800mAh Razer Power Bank is designed for use with the company's Razer Blade Stealth, but also claims compatibility with other USB-C laptops. For $150 (£145, directly converted AU$195), which is usually what you'd pay for more than twice the capacity, I hope it can deliver.

It matches the aesthetic of Razer's gaming laptops -- no glowing logo, though -- and according to the company can boost battery life past 15 hours in conjunction with the built-in battery. Other specs include:

  • 2 USB-A ports, 1 USB-C port for charging devices
  • USB-C, Micro USB inputs for charging the bank
  • Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support
  • Can identify devices for optimizing charging
  • Weighs 11.8 oz/335 g
  • Dimensions 5 x 3 x 1 in/126 x 78 x 34 mm

The Razer Power Bank will be available in March at Razer's online store.
