Upcoming Toshiba's 13-inch Laptop Has Turbo-charged Battery

Toshiba’s latest up and coming 13-inch laptop might be the world’s lightest, but it’s got another trick up its sleeve to banish battery life woes permanently. How? By adding a special second battery. Read on to discover what’s so special about the Toshiba 13-inch super-slim laptop.

Toshiba looks set to create a stir in the ultraportable laptop market by launching not only the world’s slimmest 13-inch laptop but it’s claimed by VozExpress to also deliver turbo-charged battery options.

Upcoming Toshiba's Laptop

Toshiba has yet to announce a name and price for its ultra-thin 13-inch laptop. However we are longer privy to some of its specifications. One of the most interesting is its battery. The new Toshiba laptop relies on a standard-voltage Intel processor and will be offered with an Intel Core i3 and Intel Core i5 options. This usually has an impact on battery life.

To get around this, reports Engadget, Toshiba has also added a second battery that uses Super Charged ion Battery technology capable of recharging to 90 per cent in just 10 minutes. If true, we can imagine Toshiba’s latest laptop being great for working on the move – a quick ten minute recharge in the local café, and you’re set for the rest of the day.

Other specifications to consider include a 512GB solid state drive, 500GB hard drive and a choice of Intel Core i3, Intel Core i5 and Intel Core i7-620 processors with 4GB of memory. Hopefully it’ll include Intel Wireless Display too.

We’re hoping to get further details of the Toshiba ultra-slim laptop in the next couple of days.
