In order to accompany its newest flagship smartphones, Samsung introduced two new 25W power banks, and a 45W car charger. These new accessories are meant to accompany the company’s Galaxy S20 flagships, and the Galaxy Z Flip.
These new accessories have been listed on the company’s official website. Both of these power banks pack in 10,000mAh batteries, though they are not that similar.
The first power bank actually includes a Qi charging pad, for wireless charging. You can take advantage of 7.5W wireless charging speeds with this power bans, while it offers 25W charging via its Type-C ports. It has two of them, by the way.
This accessory also includes five LED lights which signalize what’s the charge status of the internal battery. A single physical button is placed next to those indicators.
The second power bank does not support wireless charging. It does come with a USB-A port, instead of two USB-C ports. You can still take advantage of 25W charging here, though.
The company’s new car charger offers 45W charging, and comes with both a Type-C USB port, and a USB-A port. Do note that only the Type-C port can offer 45W charging, the USB-A port is limited to 15W charging.
Do note that only the Galaxy S20 Ultra and Galaxy Note 10+ support 45W charging, though, when it comes to Samsung’s smartphones. You’ll also need a 5A cable in order to take advantage of such charging speeds.
The company’s 10,000mAh power bank with wireless charging is priced at $80. Samsung still did not announce the price tag for the variant without wireless charging, though. The same goes for the dual car charger as well.
These announcements were kind of expected, as Samsung customers will look for power banks and chargers for their new Galaxy S20 smartphones.
Speaking of which, Samsung introduced three Galaxy S20 handsets a couple of days ago. The company introduced the Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra as part of its lineup.
As already mentioned, only the Galaxy S20 Ultra and Note 10+ support 45W charging, while the Galaxy S20 and S20+ are limited to 25W charging.
That basically means that only the Galaxy S20 Ultra can take advantage of the car charger’s full speed, but all phones can take advantage of full speed charging from the two power banks.
