The Steam Deck, oh what a magnificent creation it is! A handheld gaming PC that opens doors to a world of immersive gaming experiences. But alas, like a fire-breathing dragon, its battery can drain faster than you can say "Game on!" Especially when you're diving into graphically intensive adventures. Fear not, for there exists a knight in shining armor, a third-party savior known as the Baseus portable charger. And lo and behold, dear gamers, for this power bank can be yours for a mere $56 on Amazon!
The Baseus Portable Charger boasts a mighty 30,000mAh power bank and a 65W battery, capable of bestowing upon your devices several additional hours of life. To charge your Steam Deck while engaged in epic battles, you'll need a 45W battery pack at the very least. Fear not, for this particular charger is up to the task!
Behold the brick, adorned with four standard USB-A outputs and a single USB-C output, ready to deliver fast charging to supported devices. The USB-C port, a versatile gem, serves as both an output and an input, allowing you to replenish the charger's own battery. And there, on the charger's face, an LED screen shines forth, displaying the current battery level like a beacon in the darkness.
We, valiant warriors of gaming, have tested the Baseus Portable Charger and can confirm its ability to charge the Steam Deck while you traverse virtual realms. To replenish the pack's power, we harnessed the might of the Steam Deck AC adapter. Unlike many other battery packs, this one can soar from zero to one hundred in a mere hour with its fast charging prowess. Not only can you rely on it to revive your Windows laptop, MacBook, iOS or Android devices, but it also extends its benevolence to other portable gaming companions like the Nintendo Switch or ROG Ally.
Ah, but here lies a caveat, for while the Baseus Portable Charger can be used out of the box with a plethora of devices, it does somewhat hinder portability, especially when it comes to the Steam Deck. Who would desire an external battery charger dangling from their system while they embark on their virtual quests? Fear not, for the realm of accessories offers a solution! Enter the JSAUX Steam Deck ModCase, a third-party champion that allows you to securely strap the Baseus power bank to your Steam Deck. For a mere $30, this kit includes a detachable silicone strap, a sturdy metal kickstand, and protective cases for both the front and back of your precious Steam Deck. The front case even wards off the dreaded dust buildup in docked mode! Truly a ModCase that doubles as a trusty grip for your Steam Deck.
But wait, fellow adventurers! Should the Baseus Portable Charger not meet your needs, or if the deal vanishes like a mirage in the desert, fret not, for there are other alternatives awaiting your consideration on the vast plains of Amazon. Behold the Antank 45W magnetic power bank, a steal at $45 with the included coupon (previously $50). Although not as mighty as the Baseus, this power bank is specifically designed for the Steam Deck (though it graciously accommodates other devices) and comes with a removable mount to attach it to your Deck.
Lo and behold, there is another coupon deal, one that transforms UGREEN's 100W charger into a mere $64 (originally $80). This beast of a charger may be overkill for the Steam Deck itself, but it is a testament to power-hungry laptops. Oh, and let it be known that its capacity is a mere 20,000mAh, not quite as impressive as the Baseus in terms of juice-holding capabilities.
Ah, dear gamers, the choices are abundant! While all these charging bricks present solid options, do not overlook the deals on Anker power banks, beloved companions of many a gamer. Feast your eyes upon Anker's 65W portable charger, now available for a mere $54 (previously $80). It boasts a capacity of 24,000mAh, ready to fuel your gaming adventures. Or perhaps, for those seeking the ultimate power, consider the 60W alternative, complete with an AC adapter, now priced at $80 (previously $130).
In conclusion, my fellow adventurers, take heed of these charging solutions that will accompany you on your journey through the vast realms of gaming. Unleash the power of the Steam Deck, conquer the battery drain, and let your gaming adventures reach new heights! May your devices stay charged, and may your games never cease!
