Fast Charging With Up to 8 Hour Battery Backup

Now almost every high-end smartphone comes with fast charging and a huge battery backup. But still, laptops are running with old slow charging technology with poor battery backup which forces us to put our laptop on charge even when we are using it.

Such laptops are a big headache for a person who travels a lot or doesn’t have power connection available near to his desk or in case of a power cut (in India it happens a lot). It won’t be over saying if I say they are nothing more then a desktop computer when battery backup is considered.

Its fact that with poor battery backup, your laptop will not be portable anymore.
