If there is one expectation of many mobile workers, it is to be able to charge their Mac in full autonomy and at the heart of the journey.
This breed of laptop is quite special. Just like its cousins the iPod, Iphone or iPad Apple has always been quite complicated to recharge because of
- their own connectivity
- energy-consuming characteristics or batteries powerful enough to provide sufficient autonomy
So the challenge has always been great, but Powertec’s engineers have succeeded in a tour de force by relying on the new USB PD technology.
The USB Type-C PD, the solution to charge a Mac in comfort
Indeed, this new connection allows to provide an energy and a power such as we manage to recharge the MacBook type MacBook Air, MacBook Pro 45W 60W 85W and sizes ranging from 12, 13 to 15 inches.
Powertec’s latest battery, the PT111 / USB Type C PD has this port to optimize charging power to Macs that usually use 20V and 100W mains chargers. Weighing only 790g, it will be perfect to accompany you on all your travels and trips.
Using a USB-C to Magsafe 2 cable that will be plugged into the USB-C PD port of the latest PT111 battery, the trick is done…
But then you will say to me? How to connect this battery if not to the mains?
That’s where the latest innovation of Powertec PT Flap solar chargers comes in:
the PT21 – USB Type C.
Once again, the neat electronics of this 600g solar panel allows for innovation by offering, as standard, a triple output that features a 2.4A USB port, a 3A USB-C port and a DC5521 port for 12/15V connection to a cigarette lighter or other DC wiring.
By connecting the Type-C port directly to the Type-C port of the PT111 battery, we get a fast and adapted charge so that we can charge everything on the other 3 available ports…
All you have to do is go to the desert, the mountains or the Arctic, as the adventurers we accompany on their expeditions do, thanks to this autonomous solar energy kit capable of charging everything, in the hottest as well as the coldest temperatures… as long as there is light!
In Sun We Trust !
Any Drone user knows the Fly More Kit from DJI Mavic 2 that allows to optimize flying time and battery charging.
This Fly More Kit from DJI Mavic 2 comes with an Air Car Charger used to charge the Intelligent Flight Battery through the car’s 12 V accessory socket. It comes with low-voltage protection to ensure enough starting battery voltage for the car. Overheating protection will automatically cut off charging if the accessory port exceeds a certain temperature.
For Powertec, car’s 12V aaccessory socket also means charging on-the-go through solar charging station, thus without needing any car power but only taking advantage of Powertec technology.
Indeed, with its Pack 16W Tactic, Powertec has developed a powerfull portable Powerbank rating 30.000mA/h @ 4,5A max and allowing to charge any electronics devices in outdoor (from 5 to 21V) using the same car’s 12V accessory socket for all battery needing more that 12V output.
The so called PT9014 can be charged by both normal DC plug or on the go by the solar panel PT16Flap or the latest PT21 USB-C and this in only few hours of good sunny light.
The battery will thus be a powerbank that allows to charge or reload your DJI Mavic drones battery while you are Outdoor !
The “pass-through” technology takes here all its interest for this efficient solar charging station : the solar panel is charging the Powertec Powerbank which meantime is charging the DJI Mavic 2 battery.
Latest adventures in full autonomy during more than 6 weeks have experienced this latest Powertec technology and thus have been able to power their DJI Mavic 2 batteries during more than 40 days into the wild.
A drone is not only a great way to take pictures and videos but is also a great security means while you have to find your path within dangerous icepaths with numerous holes that could endanger the whole trip. This security element has now become part of adventure and it would be a shame not to take advantage of..
Powertec has blown its candles of 12 years of existence few months ago : it has become a reference in this very competitive solar panel market thanks to this kind of very efficient solautions . This solar station is thus unique and makes it very special for DJI Mavic Drone portable charging solutions.
We are proud to be part of big adventures each year for these reasons, giving thus a sense to our initial mission .. bring autonomy to their users in full confidence of efficiency and now add this security level that makes adventurers a bit more confortable .
