The DART-C is a compact, easy-to-use charger for USB-C laptops

FINsix’s $99.99 DART-C is described as “the world’s smallest charger for USB Type-C laptops” such as Apple’s recent Mac laptops (more on that in a minute). I’ll take their word for it, but it does allow you to ditch bulky bricks and USB chargers when you’re on the road.

The DART-C is a 65-watt laptop charger that’s up to four times smaller and lighter than a traditional A/C adapter. The additional built-in USB port allows for simultaneous charging of another electronic device, like a phone or tablet. 

Its 100-240V support means it can be used most anywhere in the world. It comes with a removable and reversible six-foot cable with inline 2.1A USB port, nine interchangeable laptop power tips and a microfiber travel pouch.

One caveat: the DART-C won’t juice up your 15-inch MacBook Pro as fast as Apple’s bundled charger and some third party chargers, which charge at 85W. However, if you think it’s for you, the DART-C comes in a variety of colors, including blue, gunmetal, magenta, orange, and silver.
