If you are like me, you find yourself under-powered and over-extended with work in a hurry, and it almost always happens when you are traveling and in a hurry. Luckily, the Mobile Edge 18W USB-C Power Delivery + Adaptive Fast Charge Portable Battery is available as an option for those that need to charge more than one device at a time and do so at a rapid pace. This Mobile Edge device with USB-C power delivery can charge devices much faster than other portable power devices while also providing multiple ways for you to power up.
Multifunctional and multidimensional
If you need to connect a tablet, laptop or mobile device in a hurry, this is a great gift for frequent travelers. Where it packs the biggest punch is in that it can do multiple things simultaneously, which as a business traveler, makes me especially happy. You can charge phones, tablets, and camera devices all at the same time thanks to a USB-C port, USB 3.0 port, and an adaptive fast charge port.
That last port alone can charge up a device to 50 percent in just 30 minutes, which is great for when you are in a hurry. For a full charge, it takes about five hours when using the 18W PR rapid recharge input.
I was particularly impressed that you can charge a laptop with this. Since a laptop computer requires a lot more power than a tablet or phone, many portable chargers simply won’t charge up a laptop. That’s why this is so useful for business travelers or even students to put in their briefcase or backpack because it works across multiple devices.
What makes this worth its weight in gold is its USB-C port that features a 18W PD rapid recharging input. For those in the know, this can power up a battery at twice the speed as other high-end battery chargers. That is important if you could find yourself without juice and need something powered up in a jiffy.
I love taking this with me in the car because it is much faster than my car’s charger. It’s great to use at the beach, by the pool, or even on an airplane when you find out that your aircraft is not equipped with any outlets. That always seems to happen to me when my batteries are low!
This portable battery has 13,400 mAh giving it impressive power for frequent fliers and those looking for power when a charge is needed fast. It is compatible with a variety of devices including Mac computers and Samsung Galaxy tablets among many others. I was impressed that it has the technology to adjust the amount of power needed based upon how much of a charge the device you are trying to power up needs. This helps you to conserve more power for when you need it most.
Durability for frequent travelers
Its full metal casing looks sleek, but it also assures that you can pack this in a backpack or a softshell travel case without worry that it will get damaged.
This lightweight power bank fits easily into your briefcase, purse, or travel bag. This is especially notable for those that travel internationally (when you may not have a converter handy) as well as those that are looking to power up a device using a USB-C port.
It comes with its own charging cable and wall adapter. The Mobile Edge 18W USB-C Power Delivery + Adaptive Fast Charge Portable Battery retails for around $120 on the Mobile Edge website. For the frequent traveler or those working remotely and needing a connectivity boost, this is the ideal holiday gift or stocking stuffer.
