Hi Dimers

I am looking to buy a power bank that supports laptop charging. My laptop has the charger which is 65W. I have the following questions:

1. Is it actually feasible to use power banks for 65w or it is better to go for an inverter with battery

2. How reliable are these powerbanks?

3. Suggestions for powerbanks.

Thanks in advance.

Vivek

All will be Chinese ones with no warranty. Get a big ups type powerbank which supports solar charging also. It can easily run a fridge too and it will have warranty.

If your house if facing frequent power cut, invest in an inverter for around 18-20k and live life royally.

how about an UPS.

I think ups has a lower capacity and wouldn't charge an average laptop completely, although I might ne wrong.

1. IMO not feasible at all buddy. If you wanna work on the go, get a laptop with a long battery life, such as the Zenbook series etc. If that's not the case, just install an inverter or UPS based on the type of power backup required.

2. Not reliable. Moreover, it can be bulky.

1. Is it actually feasible to use power banks for 65w or it is better to go for an inverter with battery.

- If you are looking for a solution to mitigate power outage issues, I would advise you to go for Inverter. That would be the most reliable, long-term solution for various power needs within your house. However if you are looking for a portable option to charge your laptop, we do have powerbanks which could do the job.

2. How reliable are these powerbanks?

- As reliable as a battery can be!

3. Suggestions for powerbanks.

  • If you have good budget and need something which you could use for camping, outdoor activities etc.
