ASUS Battery Health Charging technology
Leaving a laptop plugged in when the battery is already fully charged may degrade the battery, resulting in a shorter lifespan. It may also lead to battery swelling due to internal gas buildup caused by oxidation, potentially warping or damaging the laptop. ASUS Battery Health Charging technology allows you to set the state of charge to 60%, 80% or 100%, prolonging battery lifespan and reducing the chance of battery swelling.
Faster charging and longer battery lifespan
The ASUS VivoBook 15 features a lithium-polymer battery that has 3x the lifespan of standard lithium-ion batteries. With ASUS fast-charge technology, a low battery can be charged to 60 percent in just 49 minutes.
Complete connectivity, including USB Type-C™
A USB 3.1 port with a reversible USB Type-C™ connector makes connecting devices quick and easy. USB 3.1 provides data transfer speeds as fast as 5Gbps — up to 10x faster than USB 2.0 connections! You can transfer photos, music and large video files in a fraction of the time: transferring a movie with a file size of 2GB takes less than two seconds. The ASUS VivoBook 15 also features HDMI and VGA ports, as well as a 3-in-1 SD/SDHC/SDXC card reader for hassle-free compatibility with a wide range of peripherals, displays and projectors.

Stays cool — even after hours of use
Laptop cooling is important as it directly affects your computing experience.
