About the only thing that limits my Stealth usage is the battery life. The battery tech is good, considering the amount of extra power draw of the Stealth’s high performance features, but I still only get 4-5 hours of battery life with real-world usage. Sure, I could turn off the Chroma keyboard and stay off the games to eke out a few more hours, but then I’m just using a boring a black laptop again. Where’s the fun in that?
If you’re rocking a current gen Razer Blade Stealth you have a bit more battery life, but if you’ve opted for the power-hungry 4K screen, you still will find yourself hunting down a place to plug in after five or six hours. That’s why Razer created a solution, the Razer Power Bank.
Available next month, Razer’s charging solution will extend the Razer Blade Stealth’s battery life past 15 hours. The housing is black aluminum, just like your Stealth, and it’s about the size of other power banks, so it should slip easily into your laptop bag. Specially optimized to work with the 12.5-inch Blade Stealth ultrabook, the Power Bank is equipped with intelligent device charging that can identify what type of device is plugged in. You have one USB-C port for charging your Stealth (or any other USB-C powered laptop) and two USB-A ports for everything else.
Plug in your Stealth, and the Power Bank is able to fast-charge your battery to its full six hours in less than two hours of charging. With Qualcomm® Quick Charge 3.0 technology, it can charge compatible mobile devices up to four times faster than non-Quick Charge battery packs.
No matter what you do, high performance laptops are becoming a necessity rather than a luxury. The Power Bank gives you the freedom to stay mobile without having to worry about your laptop dying at the least convenient moment. With a large 12,800 mAh battery, you’ll be able to get plenty of charges out of the Power Bank, ensuring your Stealth lasts as long as you need it to. The Power Bank will be available in March directly from Razer for $149. You can find out more about the Power Bank here.
