As you can see by the photos here, this is a wall charger. It’s a pretty substantial size too, measuring in at 7.16 x 5.69 x 2.95 cm. It costs £29.99 and has a USB-C output. Into that you can plug the supplied 2 metre-long cable.
So, just a phone charger, right?
Well, to some extent, but this also has a selection of plugs. Here in the UK you’ll put the UK plug on, but there’s a European plug and a US one – you just slot in the appropriate one for your country.
Not only that, but this charger (which supports fast charging) kicks out 60 watts. It’ll charge a tablet, a MacBook Pro, a Dell XPS, a Chromebook Pixel a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon, a Samsung Chromebook Plus and iPad Pro, an iPhone X/8/8 Plus and so on.
The long, long cable means that you don’t have any problems positioning the charger. You’ll not end up with your phone on the floor because of a short cable or anything like that. Added to this is the fact that it’ll automatically identify the optimal charging current (5V/3A, 9V/3A, 12V/3A, 15V/3A, 20V/3A) to safely and quickly charge your device. You know you’ll have the fastest charge possible.
Made from smooth and shiny plastic, there’s a system which protects against overheating, overcurrent, overvoltage and overcharging. Good that. This is the sort of stuff that you don’t think you need, but you do need.
