Lenovo has released an updated ThinkPlus powerbank line up in China. The new high-powered powerbank offers uprated speed and a thinner form factor, according to Gizmochina. The 50W 14000mAh powerbank can charge both notebook PCs (via USB-C) and smart devices via USB-A.
Offering a combined output of 50W, the powerbank can simultaneously change two smartphones via its USB-A ports and a USB-C-equipped notebook like the ThinkPad X1 Carbon.
The nifty powerbank supports USB PD2.0, QC 2.0/3.0 standards and comes with typical overvoltage, high-temperature, and short circuit protection. It will also charge Apple devices up to 2.4A.
Lenovo is offering two models of the powerbank—a USB-C model priced at CNY299 (~USD43) and a Lenovo Slim Tip port model that retails for CNY399 (~USD57). It comes in either Dark Night Black or Bright Red.
The Lenovo Thinkplus powerbank is available for reservations on JD.com. No shipping date has been revealed.
I currently use a 74.5W Aukey USB-PD charger to charge my Lenovo Yoga Book C930, ThinkPad X1 Carbon (5th gen), iPad Pro and my smartphones. The Thinkplus would be a fantastic alternative, since it’s not just a charger but also a powerbank. Its compact size is a huge plus too.
