Tech Specs

The capacity of the power bank is 12,800 mAh. In our experience, the power bank was able to give us a fully charged laptop in around 1.5 hours - which is good enough for you to keep working on the go, without worrying about the battery getting draining out.

What does not go in the favor of Dell hybrid power bank

With any power bank, you’d expect to keep all your devices charged at once. In this case though, the power bank supports only 1 USB-A port. This can be slightly inconvenient for a few but if your device usage is limited, you won't really be bothered.

The aspect that makes this power adapter a little less popular in the market is its price range. Coming at an expensive price tag of $189.99 - it’s definitely not cheap. Moreover, it is compatible with Dell laptops only. There are power banks available in the market at a much lower price. But, you’d expect good quality from Dell.

What is our take?

In our experience, the power bank poses no question in terms of quality. It’ll satisfy your daily needs of charging on-the-go. However, when we analyze the price at which it comes, it’s a premium product which does its job well.

So, if you’re looking to purchase a power bank from a very reputed brand, which delivers high on performance and will probably be more durable as opposed to some of its competitors - you should go for this Dell power bank. Otherwise, if you’re a little tight on the budget, there are better options available in the market.
