Being able to charge powerful notebooks with powerbanks is now slowly inching to become a reality thanks to the latest USB PD specification, which is capable of pushing 30 watts of power to notebooks. Previously, it was the underpowered notebooks that were able to support this but it looks like its only a matter of time before this standard is widely adopted and improved.

The Anker PowerCore+ 26,800 looks to be the first to deliver ample power to a powerful notebook via its Type-C USB port, but that will also mean that you need possess a notebook that also features a USB-C port to prevent port compatibility issues.

Anker Claims That Its Latest PowerCore+ Powerbank Is Able to Charge a MacBook Pro Through Its USB PD Specification

Given below are some useful features of the powerbank highlighted by Anker.

Power In Numbers

A 30W USB-C output ensures high speed on-the-go charging for flagship notebooks including the latest MacBooks. Dual 5V/3A USB ports with PowerIQ technology offer faster charging speeds for phones and tablets.

Set Yourself Free

26800mAh is enough to keep your phones and tablets charged for a week or give your USB-C laptop over 1 full charge.

Triple-Speed Recharge

Using the included USB-C wall charger, PowerCore+ 26800 PD utilizes a huge 27 watts of power to fully charge in just over 4 hours. That's 3x faster than other portable chargers of this capacity.

Superior Safety

Anker's MultiProtect technology combines surge protection, short circuit prevention and other advanced safety features to keep you and your devices safe.

Just to be clear, the PowerCore+ 26,800 will be able to charge your notebook via Type-C USB but it will not be able to charge it at full capacity. For example, the 13-inch MacBook Pro uses a 61W USB-C power adapter, while the larger 15-inch MacBook Pro utilizes an 87W power brick. In essence, Anker’s latest powerbank will deliver juice to the notebook, but the battery percentage will increase slowly.

Regardless, this specification is only expected to get better with time and if you’re interested in making a purchase, let us know down in the comments.
