[3 March 2020] – Global technology brand HONOR put its technology to the ultimate test in a showstopping stunt involving an electric quadbike. To showcase the HONOR MagicBook Series laptop’s superior battery life, which lasts up to 10 hours on a single charge, HONOR built a charging system capable of powering a large electric quadbike, using just five HONOR MagicBook 14 devices. During a 60-minute charge, the laptops transferred enough energy (approximately 180Wh) to allow the electric vehicle to drive 5 km in distance.

Designed for on-the-go young people who need a powerful laptop to take them from day to night, the HONOR MagicBook Series packs an ultra-powerful battery inside its slim and lightweight body. HONOR carefully positioned the components of the laptop enabling it to carry a massive 56Wh high energy density battery capable of supporting up to 10-hours of uninterrupted use, whether you are browsing the web, watching high definition films, gaming or working remotely. To explore what a battery with such power can achieve, HONOR challenged a design engineering consultancy to see what else the HONOR MagicBook Series was capable of charging.

Through rounds of testing, we discovered that with the battery power of five laptops, it’s possible to charge something much larger, including electric vehiclesA charging circuit was created to connect the laptops together and raise the output voltage to 70 vdc. This charger is connected to the quadbike to charge its own battery, which is then used to power the vehicle once charging is complete,” said Dr James Brighton, Design Engineer. “It’s exciting to see how far battery technology has come and incredible to think that such a battery can be packed into the laptop which is very slim.”

“At HONOR, we are committed to designing powerful, long-lasting products that meet the demands of today’s tech savvy digital natives,” said George Zhao, President of HONOR. “This project has demonstrated the superior battery life of the HONOR MagicBook Series. Whether you are about to board a long-distance flight, working remotely in a coffee shop all day or catching up on your favorite TV shows on your commute home from work, the HONOR MagicBook series won’t let you down.”
