The RazorPlatinum portable Lithium Polymer battery packs in 13400mAh milliampere hours worth of juice and provides a 36W output that is powerful enough to keep your laptop or any other mobile device alive to extend battery life when you’re on the move.
While the world is mobile happy, but sometimes it’s necessary to use a laptop vs a tablet or smartphone. Laptop’s are notorious for short battery life and if you’ve had yours for a few years you probably keep it tethered to a power outlet. The USB Type-C port is able to fully recharge a macbook in about 1.5 hours. The myCharge RazorPlatinum is also able to charge up multiple smartphones and still have power left over for more.
The battery pack has proved to be invaluable for recharging up our children’s tablets when we’re out traveling and makes road trips that much more tolerable. The presence of both USB Type-A and Type-C ports as well as having the capacity and charge rate to extend our macbook battery makes the Razor Platinum a very capable all-in-one charging device. A very short but functional Type-C charging cable is included.
The RazorPlatinum features a rugged and slick looking Anodized Aluminum body with a large capacity Lithium Polymer 13400 mAh battery in a form factor that will still fit into your jacket pocket easily. The portable battery measures 6.5 in x 4.8 in x 1.1 inches and weighs less than a pound. myCharge has provided the RazorPlatinum as a courtesy so that we could provide first hand review coverage to our readers.
The USB Type-C output port connects newer devices. The USB Type-A port allows for backwards compatibility. A USB Type-C input recharges the RazorPlatinum in about 3-6 hours depending on how much power is left on it. You can also charge up devices while charging the RazorPlatinum unit for convenience and also simultaneously charge two devices. Four LEDs let you know how much power is left. Just shake the unit to illuminate the battery level indicator, pretty cool.
The RazorPlatinum also integrates Smart-sense to ensure device compatibility and Safe-cell technologies for battery safety. Automatic shutoff on both input and output ensure safe operation while the battery is able to maintain power for up to a year. (at least a 50% charge should be placed on the battery if you’re planning not to use it for a while.) myCharge states at least 500 charge cycles from dead.
It’s no fun sitting and waiting for your laptop or mobile phone to charge up, especially if your lacking Qualcomms quickcharge 2.0 or 3.0 technology. The RazorPlatinum features a 36W input/output so you’re transferring the maximum amount of power at a rate the device can accept. The large capacity, Hyper-charge technology allows for faster charging of mobile gear and the slick anodized aluminum design make the RazorPlatinum one of the best options for portable power at this time. Only sold in the USA.
EDIT: This item has been discontinued. Unfortunately the Razor Platinum died shortly after initial use.
