I think Anker should make something like a laptop battery bank so i can charge my laptop on airplanes instead of taking a generator (even though Anker's is very small) what do you guys think?

The Anker power house is an awesome product (even though i don’t have one) but i think it would be easier if Anker made some kind of laptop battery bank what do you guys think?.

Did you know Anker started off by making batteries for laptops?


Seeming a large number of laptops (budget and older) have varied connectors it probably wouldn’t be cost effective for Anker to jump into ‘laptop battery banks’ unless the laptops are USB-C charge capable…which they do a USB-C PD PowerCore to use already…


My notebook is an older laptop and it only charges via the special sized charging port. As @ndalby mentioned it might not be cost effective to make something like this unless your notebook can charge like the new Mac books can.


Restriction on size of battery & too many different type of connectors / compatibility will prove difficult to have a solid product for consumers.

Anker currently has this one Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD with 30W Power Delivery Charger, Portable Charger Bundle for iPhone X / 8, Nexus 5X 6P, LG G5 & USB Type-C Laptops (e.g. 2016 MacBook) Power Delivery Support.

Maybe more laptop manufacture jump on making USB-C the standard connector for charging make change future outlook.

This item is right under the 100 watt hour allowed for carry on

Taken from the FAA website :
Lithium ion batteries (a.k.a.: rechargeable lithium, lithium polymer, LIPO, secondary lithium). Passengers may carry all consumer-sized lithium ion batteries (up to 100 watt hours per battery). This size covers AA, AAA, cell phone, PDA, camera, camcorder, handheld game, tablet, portable drill, and standard laptop computer batteries. The watt hours (Wh) rating is marked on newer lithium ion batteries and is explained in #3 below. External chargers are also considered to be a battery.
With airline approval, devices can contain larger lithium ion batteries (101-160 watt hours per battery), but spares of this size are limited to two batteries in carry-on baggage only. This size covers the largest aftermarket extended-life laptop batteries and most lithium ion batteries for professional-grade audio/visual equipment.
