Realme Power Bank review: Can charge laptops and new MacBooks
It takes around six hours for the power bank to get fully charged with a standard 10W charger.
We used the new Realme power bank to charge new MacBooks and it worked surprisingly well. However, the charging time is a bit longer as the power bank can deliver a maximum output power of 18W while Macbooks has 30W rated power adapter. With limited choice when it comes to power banks for charging laptops, this one can turn out to be a lifesaver in dire situations.
To charge laptops, you would need a cable with Type-C jacks on both ends. The Realme power bank comes with a Type-C port in which you are required to connect one end of the cable and insert the other end to the cable to the Type-C port of your laptop to charge.
Talking about charging phones, the Realme power bank offers 18W two-way fast charging via USB Type-C. This means not only can you charge your phone quickly but can also use the same port to fast charge the power bank as well.
Packed with a 10,000mAh lithium-polymer battery, there is a standard USB Type-A port along with a Type-C port, both with maximum power output capacity of 18W. As for protection, Realme claims that there are 12 layers of protection for over charging or discharging.
If you use a standard 10W charger to juice up the power bank it will take around six hours to get fully charged. The charging time gets almost halved to a little above three hours if you use an 18W charger. Smartphones with fast charging support takes a little above an hour to get fully charged. As for laptops, this power bank should be seen as a handy backup option where there is no wall socket to plug your laptop’s power adaptor.
