Update (July 9): Realme has confirmed that the C11 will launch on July 14.
Realme has quietly listed the 30W Dart Charge power bank on its India website. The support page of Realme’s Indian website shows the 30W Dart Charge power bank with a model number RMA156. However, clicking that leads to nothing but the listing indicates an imminent launch in the country. Also, it looks like the Realme C11 is ready to launch in India.
Realme brought close to eight exciting products alongside the X50 Pro Player edition in China back in May. That included the Realme 10,000mAh Power Bank 2 with 18W fast charging via Type-C. The design of the power bank was a unique carbon-fibre textured finish which the company said was created using an advanced lithography technique.
However, the highlight of the auxiliaries was the 10,000mAh power bank with support for the company’s proprietary 30W Dart Charge. Realme also claimed that the new power bank will offer 53% faster compared to the lower-rated 18W charging.
While the new power bank allows the VOOC/Dart Charge compatible devices with ease, it also has the backward compatibility of 20W, 18W, 15W and 10W for budget devices. The charger has support for simultaneous dual-output via Type-A and Type-C ports.
Fixed at 30W, the single port output is DC rated at 5V-3A/9V-3A/15V-2A via Type-C/Type-A port. However, the dual-output is fixed at 25W with a rating of 5V DC at 5A. Since the input is also capable at 30W charging, the power bank can be juiced up in almost 2 hrs with a 30W Dart charger.
The new 30W Dart charger comes with a 15-layer of circuit protection that includes the current, over-power, short circuit, over charger or discharge protection. Additionally, the charger will intelligently switch to low-power mode on connect smart IoT devices like Smartwatch, Speakers etc.
Realme’s 30W Dart Charger launched at CNY199 (~$28) in China and we can expect a similar pricing of around Rs.2,129 in India. Regarding the launch, Realme’s CEO Madhav Sheth teased the arrival of a new Realme C smartphone today which could be the Realme C11 and the new power bank could accompany the budget smartphone.
The C11 was launched in other countries recently and brings a design refresh to the family. It sports a big 6.5-inch HD panel with a 20:9 aspect ratio, and is powered by the gaming-centric MediaTek Gelio G35 chipset. The battery is expected to be rated at 5,000mAh.
