    Only a photo... the product isn't available in the Netherlands so they couldn't give me any information except for what is was and a photo.

    Any updates on this? I really, REALLY want to charge my Blade 2016 either via USB-C or a power bank with an outlet plug. I've still got a few more days until mine is delivered...

  4. I saw an option in the bios to activate the usb-c charging (off or auto, no on option), but i have no charger to test it with, maybe someone who has it could test it.

    That's great to know!!! It's maybe at least a possibility. I don't know if I would charge it via USB-C while under load... only if the Blade were off or in standby.

    Can anyone post a photo of the charging specs on the charging brick? That might help as well...

    It won't, it doesn't have USB enabled charging. Not even the Thunderbolt port will work for charging. It'll have to be a solar generator or a battery bank with an A/C outlet. The problem is the battery banks I'm finding do not have enough output either. I didn't think it would be such a tough thing to find. Too bad Razer doesn't create one specifically for the Blade...

    I did not know that the Blade came with a 45W power adapter. That does not seem right to me. If it was, then it would be able to be powered off of the USB-C.

    Here is what my 2016 165W Blade power supply states.
    • AC Input: 100-240Vac, 50/60Hz, 2.5A
    • DC Output: 19.8V — 8.33A

    There's some confusion here on model names.

    @Brastic is referring to his Razer Blade 14" - 165W charger.

    @EncryptedCurse is referring to his Razer Blade Stealth 12.5" - 45W charger.

    Hope this helps.

    The specs on my 2016 Blade charger is,

    AC Input: 100v - 240v~2.5a 50/60hz
    DC Output: 19.8v===8.33a
    Total 165w

    I really need a way to charge on a battery also. If you are not gaming and using full power, I am thinking that the massive batter packs that support 19v or 20v at 5+ amps should have no issue charging. Let me run some test on the Blade power usage and get back to all.

    Example:

    There is no support for USB or USB-C charging on the 2016 Blade. We're DOA without a battery bank with an AC plug port and the charging cable.

    Why wouldn't something like this work?
    https://www.amazon.com/RAVPower-230...1469498277&sr=8-1&keywords=20v+laptop+battery

    Will the Blade not charge if it is connected to a puny power supply or will it not be powered at all? Because a lot of laptops, if you connect a lower-wattage brick it will charge slowly or not at all, but the computer itself will still be powered up.

    Example: apple magsafe charger has a little ID chip inside the plug itself, and thinkpads have a center pin that has a resistor to ground to signal how many amps the computer can (safely) pull. I say "safely" because people have hacked their 90W bricks (much smaller!) to say 130W... :/

    Only ultrabook style laptops like the stealth, and those aren't even out yet.

    The battery pack I listed is not only for USB-C. There are battery packs that can output both 19v and 20v. Since the Blade charges at 19.8v, both should work. I can find 50watt and 80watt battery packs. Those should have no issue charging the Blade either turned off of sleeping. Maybe even with light web surfing. I will have to run some test though.
