At the time of writing this, it would be almost 3 weeks since I got the new MacBook Air. (Yeah yeah, Apple fan. I just prefer using Apple products okay?) This laptop has USB-C (USB Type-C). One benefit that port gives me is that I can charge the laptop with a power bank! One caveat though is that the power bank must have support for USB Power Delivery (USB PD) which supports charging up to 100W. One can’t just simply use their usual power bank! You need one that blends great power and safety you can count on. ASUS has a product for you: the ASUS ZenPower Pro PD!
What Does the ASUS ZenPower Pro PD Offer?
This gives you the portability of a regular power bank with the power of USB-C and USB PD! It supports charging your usual smartphone or tablet with a USB Type-A port and even charging the new iPad Pro or your laptop through the USB-C port! With a capacity of 13600 mAh, you can charge both your phone AND your laptop! If you’re also worried that it would take forever to charge when it runs out, you can charge it with the same USB-C port! This means you can charge it using the same charger as your USB-C powered laptop!
Safety IS a Priority!
Gadget manufacturers these days tend to be WAY MORE CAREFUL with batteries. After the debacle of the Galaxy Note 7, all of them want to make sure they don’t go through all that trouble. This is why ASUS made sure that they checked almost every aspect of this power bank. Knowing about their safety checks assures me that I can use the ZenPower Pro PD with confidence.
