Tech review: Innergie’s newest USB-C power adapter
Innergie’s latest power adapter is an all-in-one product to charge your mobile devices and laptops.
In this digital age, a good charger is paramount. Especially one that is durable, portable and most importantly, charges devices fast.
Innergie’s newest 63W USB-C power adapter claims to be just that. This adapter has two USB-C inputs and can charge two devices at once. What’s more is that it is an all-in-one product, which means that it can be used to charge your mobile devices and laptops – which means no more carrying around multiple bulky charges.
From automatically allocating its 63W power between the two USB-C inputs to optimizing energy efficiency, this product claims to do it all, but does it really?
Three of Youthopia’s writers put it to the test and here’s what they’ve gathered:
Lightweight and compact
If you’re a Macbook user like myself, you would know how heavy and bulky the original Apple Macbook charger is. I find it a hassle to carry my Macbook charger around because of its weight and how it also takes up a lot of space in my bag.
When I first held Innergie’s newest USB-C power adapter, it was definitely smaller and more compact compared to Apple’s Macbook charger.
Furthermore, the head of Innergie’s power adapter is also much thinner and lighter.
Not long ago, I tried bringing the Innergie power adapter out and it surely is not as heavy and does not take up as much space as the Macbook charger. The power adapter is just slightly bigger than the Airpods Pro.
Innergie’s 63W USB-C power adapter is indeed light and compact, which is really good for travelling light.
I had high hopes for the power adaptor’s fast charging capabilities and it did not disappoint. I own an Acer laptop that usually takes about two to three hours to fully charge with a regular charger. However, with the Innergie power adapter, my laptop took only about an hour to fully charge.
My friends who are Macbook users also tried out the Innergie power adapter. After testing, they said that it charges “incredibly fast” and only took less than an hour for their Macbook to fully charge.
Additionally, non-Macbook users like me can get laptop charger tips and a wire along with the power adapter at no additional cost.
The power adapter can also charge two devices at once, this would make you think that it might make the charging slow, but this was not the case for the Innergie power adapter. While it did charge slightly slower than when only one device was charging, it was still faster than my regular laptop charger.
Makes things convenient
The power adapter makes life a whole lot easier as it can be used as your own travel adapter.
If you’re scrambling to find an adapter that charges multiple devices without taking up too much space in your bag, the Innergie power adapter does just that.
The size is small and fits into any socket without blocking other chargers or devices. I’m able to charge my Airpods, iPhone and laptop at the same time without them overcrowding my desk.
My mother has also tried and tested the power adapter. She was impressed by the sleek design and that she can now travel light when she brings it to work.
In addition, the head of the adapter is swappable with four other plugs available in the World Travel Plug Kit. These four interchangeable plugs are sold separately and can be used in North America, UK, Australia, Asia Pacific and Europe.
This means that Innergie’s power adapter is also functional in several other countries so you will be able to charge your devices anywhere. It also helps that the adapter comes with a unique feature – the Dynamic Power Allocation – where it automatically detects, calculates and output the correct power, making any port the correct one tailored to the specific needs.
The power adapter is available in two versions – the UK plug (priced at $99) and the International plug ($115). The product is available at Challenger, Courts, Harvey Norman, Best Denki, iStudio, Shopee and Lazada.
