Technology has come a long way in recent years, especially in the world of laptop charging.  

Laptops that used to only last a few hours when unplugged are now lasting longer than ever thanks to updates in charging technology. 

With new advancements in this tech being unveiled all the time, it’s hard to keep up with all the latest news, so we’re here to help keep you up to date. 

Here are some of the key upcoming trends that will become the future of laptop charging. 

Charging Via USB-C 240W 

USB Charging is going to see some serious performance upgrades over the next few months, especially when it comes to devices that use USB-C to power up. 

USB-C just got a power upgrade to 240 watts, which is more than double its current capacity of 100 watts. This means that the standard charger can now be used to power more intensive devices like gaming notebooks and docking stations more effectively. 

The new 240-watt capacity will be more than enough to charge large monitors, gaming laptops, workstations and other devices. 


Power banks have been an essential piece of equipment for phone users for years now, but they are now more powerful than ever – even being able to charge up your laptops when you’re out and about. 

As more people than ever find themselves working remotely and on the go, the need for power banks is high. You can never be sure when you’re going to have access to the mains supply, but with a power bank you know you can always charge up your device. 

Wireless charging

Another trend that started off in mobile phones and is now making its way over to the laptop market is wireless charging. 

Many brands are bringing out charging mats that you can place your laptop on when it’s running out of charge to bring it back to life.

The pieces of kit don’t take up any additional space as they fit underneath your laptop. Not all laptops have this functionality at the moment, but we expect this trend to continue growing over the next few years. 

Laptop models may be changing at a rapid pace, but one thing that will never change is the need to keep your machine protected in a stylish yet functional laptop bag.
