Make Sure All of Your USB-C Devices Have Power with the Nekteck USB-C Power Brick

GearDiary Make Sure All of Your USB-C Devices Have Power with the Nekteck USB-C Power Brick

Did you recently get a new MacBook Pro, iPad Pro, or another device that uses USB Type-C, so now you’re looking for an alternative to the power brick you’ve been using to charge them? Well, look no further thanks to the Nekteck USB-C Power Brick.

I received the Nekteck USB-C Power Brick a few weeks ago, and it’s been my go-to wall plug for not just my MacBook and iPad, but even my Google Pixel 3XL. Delivering 90-watts of power, it’s leaps and bounds faster at charging than the standard wall chargers that I’ve used, and its even more portable thanks to the smaller footprint than even Apple’s included MacBook Pro charger. Prior to receiving the Nekteck, I would carry around the Apple charger it all of its white glory, but I was always afraid of its shorter cable (no longer being able to be extended like prior models), and its inability to sit flush with other things I have plugged into the wall.

This isn’t the case with the Nekteck; not only will the Nekteck allow you to charge in the bottom outlet in your wall with ease, but the charger itself comes with a premium 6-foot Type-C integrated cable that won’t overheat devices that you plug into it. If you are worried about using a third-party plug for charging the devices that cost you hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars, rest assured. The Nekteck is certified by USB-IF and UL Listed, thanks to it using high-quality components.

The Nekteck is a mainstay in my gadget bag now so that I’m never without a USB-C charger; I can comfortably leave my Apple charger plugged in at home. It’s also black, which is a nice switch from the typical white power brick cables (and it matches most of my devices). And let’s be honest, it’s only $29.99 right now, which is a fraction of the price of any others on the market to do the same thing.

What I Like: PRICE!; Black color is nicer than white; Slimmer profile than traditional Apple model

What Needs Improvement: An additional port to charge other items would’ve been ideal
