Faster charging times, higher capacity and a first-class price-performance ratio: starting in October, VARTA will begin deliveries of new Power Bank series that keep smartphones, tablets and earphones / Bluetooth headphones ready for use even on long journeys. These two new series can supply up to 20,000 mAh and are intended for use in professional and private settings.
Power Bank Fast Energy
With its Quick Charge 3.0 function, the new Power Bank Fast Energy series is primarily designed for frequent flyers, frequent travelers and people with a special affinity for technology who appreciate short charging times. Several end devices can be simultaneously supplied with power via two USB A QC ports and one USB Type C PD port on the side. The USB Type C PD port offers a 20 percent faster charging speed than standard ports*: it can charge end devices up to 80 percent within just one hour**. The Power Banks themselves are charged via the supplied USB Type C cable or a micro-USB charging cable. White LEDs indicate the current charge status of the Power Bank; blue LEDs show the Quick Charge status.
Equipped with Advanced Safety Technology from VARTA Consumer Batteries, this new Power Bank series provides the highest level of safety – from temperature control, through protection against deep discharge and overcharge, to safeguards against overcurrent, overvoltage and short circuits. The Power Bank Fast Energy series is UN38.3 compliant so it can be carried safely in hand luggage. The devices will be available in the following versions starting in October:
