COLES NOTES VERSION:

Well-conceived (crowd-funded!) and well-made 30W USB-C and 2.4A 5V USB-A charger with innovative plug design. 3-year warranty gives confidence, but missing multiple ports, USB QC fast charging and higher-powered 61W USB-C charging for power-hungry laptops.

WHAT IS IT?

Convenient USB-C and USB-A charger

WHY IT MATTERS:

Travel-worthy, multi-angle plug

WHO IT’S FOR:

My sister – simple, Macbook owner with a phone. Not for sharing 😉

REVIEW:

Pros:

  • build quality
  • 3-year warranty
  • travel-worthy
  • innovative multi-angle plug
  • includes international travel plugs

Cons:

  • Only 1 USB-A and 1 USB-C port
  • raised plug design
  • Max USB-C is 30W

From this good review:
“Another important caveat: when you’re using both of the plugs on the adapter, the power adapter limits both ports to ~1.8A (instead of ~3.0A). This means that if you are trying to charge and use a MacBook Pro (which needs at least ~2.4A to recharge while in use), my MacBook Pro may actually have a net loss of battery charge unless the usage is very light, and the screen is dimmed;”

Wishlist:

Make various models available with:
– more ports
– USB QC fast charging
– higher USB-C power rating suitable for charging power-hungry Macbook Pros

CONCLUSION:

Convenient, well-made and designed charger for those with modest USB-C & USB-A charging needs. Looking forward to seeing this company create other versions with more ports and power options to truly create “One USB charger to rule them all.”
