AUKEY Power Banks Strong Enough to Charge Even Your Laptops
While there are plenty of power banks available on the market, not all are equal. As a leading authority on power banks, our experts at AUKEY can tell you that different types of power banks are suitable for charging different electronic devices depending on their power output, capacity, and compatible ports.
Power Banks with Features That Can Charge Laptops
On the lookout for power banks that have enough capability to charge large devices like laptops? Here are two key features that you need to take note of:
Laptops, compared to most other portable electronic devices like our tablets and phones, consume a lot more energy – at around 30 – 70 watts/hour for the average model.
For this simple reason, you will need a power bank with a sufficiently high enough power output (more than 50W at the very least) to charge your power-hungry laptop.
When it comes to power output, the higher the better since it means the laptop can be charged more quickly.
The battery capacity of your power bank (shown in mAh or Wh) or “energy storage” is important because it indicates how many times you can charge the laptop.
Depending on the battery capacity of the laptop, you will need a power bank that has a rated battery capacity of at least twice that to ensure it can charge your laptop fully a minimum of two times before it runs out of juice.
Based on MacBook Pro 13 with a battery capacity of 5,820 mAh, which tells you how much energy it stores when charged to 100%, you will need at least 11,640 mAh (twice that of the battery capacity) for your power bank if you expect to charge your laptop twice!
