NekTeck USB-IF Wall Charger is fast and inexpensive

If you travel a lot and need to power up a lot of gadgets, the Nekteck USB-IF Wall Charger is convenient. With 90W of power delivery, it offers fast charging and comes with a handy six-foot Type-C integrated cable with a new design that’s fully reversible. 

That’s a very nice touch, as this allows you to connect regardless of how you’re holding and inserting the cable into your device. Also cool: the NekTeck Charger can “intelligently” identify your gadgets automatically and provide the best output current (5V/3A, 9V/3A,15V/3A, 20V/4.5A). 

It’s compatible with tablets and smartphones with a USB Type-C connector, such as Apple’s 12-inch MacBook, MacBook Pro (2016 or later), MacBook Air (2018), iPad Pro (2018), and more.

There is one major drawback to the charger: it comes with a “captive” cord — in other words, it’s built into the body of the charger. This means if it goes out, the entire charger is useless. 

On the other hand, the device is very affordable. You can get the Nekteck USB-IF Wall Charger for $19.99 at Amazon.
