HTC has recently launched a USB Type-C power bank with 2 Way Quick Charge 3.0 Support. For now, the power bank has been made available in Taiwan. It capacitates 10,050 mAh and has been priced at $65/Rs 4,300. The power bank will be available only on pre-order.
There are not many Qualcomm certified power banks that boast of quick charge feature, and now the HTC USB Type-C Power Bank is one of them. Smartphones featuring the Quick Charge 3.0 would be compatible with this power bank. Anker and Xiaomi have also designed Type-C power banks, but none of them support Quick Charge. Another power bank which comes with 10,000 mAh capacity has two-way charging also is the Mi power bank, but the device is not Qualcomm certified.
There are two color variants of the power bank – black and white. The device has been built in aluminum body and is very handy.
In the measurement, the HTC power bank is 103.5 x 60.9 x 22.8 mm and is 182.5 grams. The power bank has a regular USB Type A Port for output and a USB Type-C port for input. The LED light indicators on the side indicate the battery that is left. The main feature of the power bank is that besides getting quick charged from a source it also quick charges another gadget. The HTC logo is designed on one side, and the opposite side has the logo of Quick Charge 3.0 logo.
The HTC power bank has been specially designed for the heavy duty users who at times look for the solid source of energy.
Although, the device is on the expensive side the Qualcomm certification and Quick Charge feature make it worth a buy.
