Cell phones have charging banks. Similarly, a laptop has corresponding power devices.
So let’s find out more about it.
A mobile power bank is a battery pack you can carry and use to charge your electronic gadgets.
It usually has a USB port that can be used to connect the device. They are available in a variety of capacities, wattages, and shapes.
If you are a newbie unfamiliar with the operation, you have come to the right place!
Here are some basic steps to follow:
‚óŹ Choose the correct mobile power supply for your laptop. Most laptops require a 16V-20V output, while most mobile power supplies offer a 5V USB output. Most of the time, your AC adapter or instructions will tell you how much power and voltage your laptop can put out.
‚óŹ Fully charge the mobile power before leaving. If the battery on your laptop dies while you are away, you will need to charge your portable power source fully.
‚óŹ Connect the portable power supply to your laptop. Many mobile power sources link to your computer using USB-C cables and ports. You can also find power sources that use USB-A or lightning ports.
‚óŹ Turn on the mobile power (if necessary). Depending on the brand and model of the mobile power source, you may need to press the mobile power button or turn on the switch to start charging your computer.
You should see the battery charging symbol on the tray of your laptop screen. It looks like the battery icon next to the three-prong plug on Windows because the icon is white.
On a Mac, you’ll see a lightning bolt inside the battery icon.
Not all mobile power is created equal. You need a mobile power source with a lot of power and the right output voltage to charge your laptop.
You need to keep some considerations in mind:
‚óŹ Need fast charging? Look for mobile power with features that provide faster charging speeds
‚óŹ Using your laptop for software-intensive tasks like making videos or playing games? Then, make sure you choose a mobile power supply with a larger capacity and power output to keep up with the fast energy use.
Alternatively, consider turning on the Energy Saver mode to help reduce energy consumption.
‚óŹ If you plan to travel by air with a rechargeable battery, check airline regulations. For Singapore Airlines, it must not exceed 100 Wh.
‚óŹ Does it have a port compatible with your laptop? The USB-C transfer port is the new standard for laptop charging ports, so most portable chargers also have a USB-C output port.
But if you have an old laptop, check to see if the charging port is compatible with the mobile power you want to use.
Some laptop brands have charging ports or only a few places to charge. This is especially true for smaller models.
Alternatively, you can use a special adapter to bypass this issue!
Choosing it is not a difficult task, as long as you follow these few tips:
Yes, mobile power can be used with laptops. However, compatibility between the mobile power and the laptop must be considered. Laptops are high-power devices with 105W or even 135W chargers. In contrast, most mobile power supplies have an output of 5V/2A or 9V/2A, which is far below the requirements of modern laptops. That’s why it’s important to understand laptop charging rates in the first place.
Mobile power cannot replace a laptop battery as a power source. It is because most laptops require 18 to 19 volts, but mobile power is only 5 volts.
There is no exact answer to this. It’s because the best way to charge a laptop on the go depends on the type and size of the laptop.
But in general, it takes about 2 hours to charge a laptop with mobile power, so make sure you have enough time.
Also, there are different types of mobile power, so make sure the one you choose is the right size for your laptop.
You can also charge other devices, such as cell phones and tablets. So, a mobile power pack is the best choice, whether you need a quick charge or want to power multiple devices simultaneously.
Now, you can finally say goodbye to the days of anxiously searching for a nearby plug.
You also no longer have to worry about your laptop running out of power and losing your files.
The power bank has become one of the most important things we must take with us when we move around the world.
Once an impossible dream, fully charging our laptops on our trips is now a reality. It lets us capture every beautiful moment, develop new ideas, and keep in touch with the people who mean the most.
So, we welcome this combination of ease of use and new ideas because it gives us more freedom.
Our laptops can be recharged with the unlimited power of the power bank as we boldly step into the future.
