Satechi today announced the launch of a new 75W USB-C travel charger that’s equipped with multiple ports to charge all of your devices with one simple power adapter.
The 75W Multiport Travel Charger offers four charging ports, including a USB-C power delivery port, two USB 3.0 ports, and one Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 port.
The USB-C port can provide up to 60W of power, making it suitable for the 12-inch MacBook, the 13-inch MacBook Pro, and similar USB-C devices. It can also charge a 15-inch MacBook Pro, but as that machine accepts up to 87W of power, it may not charge fully with the Multiport Travel Charger when under a heavy workload.
Belkin today announced the launch of a new 36W USB-C car charger, which is able to provide fast charging capabilities for the iPhone X, the iPhone 8, and the iPhone 8 Plus. All three of those devices support a fast charging feature that allows them to be charged to 50 percent battery life in 30 minutes.
Priced at $29.99, Belkin’s new car charger accessory does not include a USB-C to Lightning cable, which is required to make it work. Apple sells USB-C to Lightning cables at prices starting at $25. If you don’t already own a USB-C to Lightning cable, it brings the total price of the Belkin Charger to $55.
In addition to being able to fast [...]
With the launch of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, Apple added inductive wireless charging support to its mobile devices for the first time. While the feature brought Apple’s phones up to speed with existing Qi-compatible charging standards, the announcement fell short of some expectations that this year Apple would introduce technology allowing iPhones to be powered wirelessly at a distance, rather than having to use a charging mat.
However, Pi is a California-based startup that aims to break from that limitation with the Pi Charger – a cone-shaped tabletop device that combines Qi-based resonant induction with a special beam-forming algorithm that allows it to charge [...]
ElevationLab’s latest product is the BatteryPro, an Apple Watch and iPhone charger that’s got some clever design elements and a built-in Apple Watch charging puck for convenience. Priced at $99, the BatteryPro isn’t cheap, but if you value ease of use over cost, it’s worth checking out.
At first glance, the BatteryPro doesn’t look like much. It’s similar in design to many external battery packs, constructed from plain but durable black plastic and designed with a rectangular shape that matches up well with the iPhone. It’s meant to fit in a back pocket while charging the iPhone, and it does. Walking around with the BatteryPro in [...]
