Just when you thought Razer would only stop at laptops, gaming peripherals and expensive backpacks, they’ve gone ahead with the idea of jumping into the powerbank fray.
As featured on their website, Razer has released their powerbank. It comes in only one capacity (12,800mAh rechargeable Lithium-ion), with 3 ports for charging. It features a single USB-C port and dual USB-A ports (our standard micro USB). It also supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 and Apple fast charging, which will come in handy with this generation’s flagship devices. How it works is that it supports wider voltage options, where your device will adjust dynamically to deliver the ideal level of voltage to charge as fast as it can.
Besides charging smartphones and other small gadgets, the powerbank is claimed to be able to charge even USB-C powered laptops like their own Razer Blade Stealth, the Dell XPS 13 and Asus Zenbook. It claims to give up to an additional 6 hours of battery life on the Razer Blade Stealth.

The body is made of CNC Aluminium, so expect it to have a sleek and shiny body schemed to Razer’s trademark black and grey. CNC (Computer Numerical Control) is a method of automated cutting using machinery to cut accurate 3D shapes out of materials, which in this case is aluminium.
We’re not sure when the Razer powerbank will arrive at our Malaysian shores, but you can register your interest on the Razer website here. It’s no toaster, but it’s still something after a long time. Maybe their 2nd generation Chroma powerbank with mechanical switches for their power button.
