BioLite Unveils All-New Charge PD Powerbank Series

February 10, 2021

Featuring Fast USB-C Power Delivery and Larger Capacities, BioLite Steps Up In Portable Energy

Brooklyn, NY (February 10, 2021)— BioLite, an innovator in off-grid renewable energy solutions, is delivering on-demand energy with the company’s new and improved Charge PD Series. BioLite’s new lineup of portable power banks is designed to deliver faster, more flexible charging for the next generation of electronic devices.

The Charge PD provides substantial power and delivers it fast: The design’s USB-C port allows for safe, efficient charging up to 18W, more than three times faster than a traditional USB port. Additionally, the two USB-A ports feature Quick Charge 3.0 protocols, enabling users to charge up to 15W. Available in 6,000mAh, 10,000mAh, and 20,000mAh models, the new line can power smartphones, camera batteries – and even laptops.

“Personal electronics are increasingly headed outside and on the road with our users,” explains BioLite co-Founder and CEO Jonathan Cedar. “Whether you’re looking to recharge a light at your campsite or power up a tablet for remote work, our Charge PD series is ready to power life off-grid and deliver that energy quickly so you can get back to your action.”

The new Charge PD Series seamlessly integrates with BioLite’s existing product ecosystem. For example, BioLite’s latest award-winning headlamp, the HeadLamp 750, offers users a unique option to engage “Pass-Thru Charging Technology,” effectively allowing the headlamp to run forever with the assistance of external USB energy. In addition to their HeadLamps, the Charge PD series offers reliable, fast-charging power to the entire portfolio of BioLite rechargeable products.

The powerbanks are packable, portable, FAA carry-on compliant, and can charge several devices at once thanks to multiple ports  — making them a great companion for travelers, commuters, and off-grid adventure.

BioLite’s Charge PD Series can be found at select retailers and BioLiteEnergy.com.
