Slim, powerful, stylish – the new Slim Power Banks from VARTA Consumer Batteries

The new VARTA Slim Power Banks combine two advanced technologies for even more flexibility and convenience in mobile charging – thanks to a USB Type C outport and a built-in lithium-polymer battery. With their elegant design, the new Power Banks are indispensable companions for mobile living. The 6000 mAh and 12000 mAh Slim Power Banks are already available online and in stores. The range will be expanded this summer to include a model offering 18000 mAh.

In the age of digitalization, constant accessibility and the mobile availability of information play an important role, both in people’s professional and private lives. Power-hungry apps for mobile devices allow users to read e-mails during long meetings, navigate their way around unfamiliar cities and much more. At the same time, the nearest opportunity to recharge batteries at an electrical socket is often hours or miles away in these everyday situations. The Slim Power Banks give consumers reliable power partners that do not require a socket and are even up to date with the latest technology trend.

The Slim Power Bank range is available in three different models with 6000 mAh, 12000 mAh (already available) and 18000 mAh (coming in summer 2017). These mobile sources of power feature a USB Type C outport, part of a trend toward a new symmetrical plug connector system that is fully reversible and offers many advantages. With a standard voltage of 5 V, a USB Type C outport allows a current of up to 3 A for faster recharging. Because the VARTA Slim Power Bank has a USB Type C and USB A outport it is perfectly prepared to handle all current and future mobile devices. It can even charge two devices at the same time. The Power Bank can be recharged using the supplied Micro USB cable.

Modern accessories for the new standard

VARTA offers practical, modern accessories to supply devices with power and synchronize data. New in the range is a USB Type C cable, which makes it possible to charge all modern USB Type C devices or to transfer data. Also new is the 2in1 Charge & Sync Cable, which combines both a Micro USB and an Apple Lightning connector.
In addition USB Type C cable adapters that can convert cables from USB A or Micro USB to USB Type C has been available since March 2017.

VARTA used advanced technology in the development of the new Slim Power Banks. Thanks to the built-in lithium-polymer batteries, these little bundles of energy are especially slim. Lithium-polymer batteries also provide higher power and energy density than all other batteries as well as greater protection against overcharging and discharging. Still, these strikingly slender companions hold a great deal of power in store. With a full battery, each VARTA Slim Power Bank has what it takes to fully charge smartphones, tablets or other mobile devices several times over. For example, the smallest model, the 6000 mAh Slim Power Bank, is capable of supplying one tablet or 2.5 smartphones with power1. The elegant design, featuring slate gray aluminum housing with a matte finish and rounded edges, looks great everywhere it goes. VARTA also offers a two-year warranty for the stylish Power Banks.
