    I am trying to buy a battery power station to power my laptop on the go. I need to know how many watts the laptop uses to make sure the battery is powerful enough. I could not find this info in any of the documentation. I also filled out a support ticket and got no answer. The power brick says 230 watts max, but is that what the laptop actually uses or just what the power cord is capable of providing? Please help.

    Razer Blade base 2020 only can be powered by Razer exclusive power adapter you can’t use other ac adapter unfortunately. There’s recently 3rd party 230 watt AC adapter on Amazon but similar size and weight. Advanced 15 2020 and pro 17 usb c port supports PD, so if you need smaller power adapter on the go on light tasks purposes (usb c only support up to 100 watt, can’t be use on heavy tasks only light tasks like paperwork, browsing etc), you’ve to look at those models.

    I am planning to use the oem cord. I just want to plug the cord into a portable battery. How much power does the laptop require in watts?

    I don’t have Watt Meter or tools like that, but from cpu ang gpu itself at least you need 135 watt, considering your gpu rate at 90 watt and cpu 45 watt, plus other parts like ssd, however it also depends on use case, it may be lower since it’s optimus laptop, where gpu would on and off depends the task. Btw I’m curious what kind portable battery are you looking at, there’re only usb c power bank which rate at max 100 watt that can be said “portable”, I know some big powerbank that use a wheel to transport and that can power also tv like a generator on camping bus or so, that can power gaming laptops I think.

    Thank you so much for responding in further detail. So it sounds like I really do need at least 135 watts and possibly up to 230. I am an architect, so, my cpu/gpu are working a little as I model projects in 3d. If I am rendering, then the gpu is working much harder.

    I want to be able to work out of my van for the day or on a trip. I just bought an EcoFlow River 370 Power Station

    It has (2) conventional power receptacles plus different flavors of usb ports, so, I should be able to plug in the laptop and an extra monitor.
    • 370WH HIGH CAPACITY - Built-in 370Wh (100000mAh at 3.7V) battery, the portable generator provides you 500W total power output.
    • 3 HOURS TO FULLY CHARGED - with EcoFlow’s bidirectional inverter technology, the 60W USB-C Power Delivery (PD) ports can charge&discharge faster and safer.
    • 9 CONVENIENT OUTPUTS - Power up to 9 devices at the same time which include 2 * AC Outputs at 300W (peak 600W); 2 * Power Delivery USB-C ports that support 60W per port (support most laptops); 2 * Quick charge USB ports that support 28W per port; 2 * USB ports that support 12W per port; 1 * 12V carport that supports 96W. It can also be charged while outputting power
    EcoFlow also makes a bigger version call the Delta and solar panels for a truly plug and play system. I can also run the laptop of the 12v plug with an inverter, but the engine needs to be running. Lots of folks add/wire in auxiliary batteries in their vans, but this portable power station seems easier for my needs.

    Again, thank you for sharing the electrical info!
