Zendure Revolutionizes Travel with New A8PD Pro Power Bank

Zendure’s 138W portable charger can power a phone through a week of typical usage or a laptop for about 13 hours, but only needs around one hour to recharge.

Palo Alto, California, Jan. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zendure is pushing the boundaries of travel technology with A8PD Pro, its latest power bank for laptops, phones and tablets.

With 138W of maximum total output, A8PD Pro can quickly recharge a compatible MacBook Pro or other USB-C powered laptop, so users who are away from home don’t have to constantly search for an outlet while catching up on work, gaming, or connecting through social media. With two USB-C PD (Power Delivery) ports and two ZEN+ 2.0 ports (compatible with Quick Charge 3.0 technology), A8PD Pro can charge up to four devices at the same time. A digital LED display conveniently indicates the remaining charge.

The new power bank has a charge capacity of 27,000mAh, enough to recharge most phones 7-9 times or supply a compatible laptop with about 13 hours of typical usage. Despite its massive storage capacity, A8PD Pro weighs just 17oz / 483g and is within the limit for FAA-approved carry-on batteries, making it an ideal travel companion.

A8PD Pro’s high-density battery cells can be recharged in about one hour with a compatible 100W charger and high-power charging cable. The new external battery is also capable of pass-through charging, which means A8PD Pro can be recharged while it is also supplying power to other devices.

“The one-hour recharge was an important milestone in developing A8PD Pro, as determined through our extensive consumer research,” said Bryan Liu, founder and CEO of Zendure. “Travelers constantly get back to their hotel late at night and have to leave early in the morning. Between the quick refill capability and the pass-through charging technology, A8PD Pro is a true travel essential.”

A8PD Pro will be available in black or silver via crowdfunding starting January 28, 2019. Early bird discounts up to 40% off will be available at the start of their campaign, and anyone interested in taking advantage of those deals can sign up for notifications on Zendure’s website. (
