HTC Launches USB Type-C Power Bank with 2-way QuickCharge 3.0 Support



The Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer, HTC launched the U Ultra and U Play smartphones in January. Both these smartphones come with USB Type-C port and skip the 3.5mm Audio port. However, the HTC 10 Evo (a.k.a HTC Bolt) is the first smartphone from this brand to skip the 3.5mm Audio port. Out of the all these devices, only the HTC U Ultra comes with USB Type-C 3.1 port, whereas the other two devices settle with USB Type-C 2.0 port. Today, the company has launched a new power bank with 10,050mAh capacity in Taiwan. It is priced at NT$2010 (approx US$65 / Rs. 4,300) and is currently available to pre-order.

This new power bank comes with Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 3.0 certification and supports two-way fast charging. With QuickCharge 3.0, the power bank can be charged quickly, and in return, it can quickly charge the connected devices, but only if they support fast charging. It comes with one USB Type-C port for input and one regular USB Type-A port for output. For input, the power bank accepts 5V/2A, 9V/2A, 12V/1.5A standards and for output, it offers 5-6V/3A, 6-9V/2A, and 9-12V/1.5A fast charging. There are four LED lights to give an estimation of the remaining power capacity. It measures 103.5 x 60.9 x 22.8 mm and weighs 182.5 grams.

The QuickCharge 3.0 certification adds an additional cost, and that might be the reason for its hefty price tag. It will be available in White and Black color options. On one side, we can see the HTC logo and on the opposite side is the QuickCharge 3.0 logo. HTC is also offering a USB Type-A to USB Type-C charging cable along with the power bank. There are few other USB Type-C power banks from brands like Xiaomi and Anker, but they lack the QuickCharge support. The Mi power bank Pro with 10,000mAh capacity also comes with two-way fast charging, but it is not certified by Qualcomm.

It offers 18W power output that might not charge faster than the QuickCharge 3.0. Both the HTC and Xiaomi power banks come with the Aluminum body. The Mi power bank pro measuring just 12.6mm thickness is much slimmer than the HTC’s new power bank that measures 22.8mm thickness. While the HTC’s QuickCharge 3.0 power bank costs almost Rs. 4,300; the Mi power bank pro is retailing at just Rs. 1,999 (approx $30). As of now, the HTC is selling its new power bank only in Taiwan and might soon launch in China. Stay tuned for more updates!
