One of the best things about USB-C charging is that you can use almost any USB-C charger to charge any USB-C device. This can be especially useful for traveling as one USB-C charger is all you'd need to supply multiple laptops, tablets, smartphones, wireless earbuds, and even Nintendo Switch consoles. Razer will be launching its own universal USB-C charger this July that promises a maximum output of 130 W to be more than enough for a wide range of laptops and accessories.
Simply called the Razer USB-C GaN charger, the portable adapter is very small at just 3.2 x 7.7 x 6.2 mm and it integrates two USB-C ports and two USB-A ports for charging up to four devices simultaneously. Its charging mechanism is based on Gallium Nitride for higher charging efficiency and lower heat output which is what allows the adapter to be so small in the first place when compared to most other AC adapters.
It's worth keeping in mind GaN chargers have been available from various other manufacturers for several years, but this is the first time that a major PC accessory maker like Razer will be launching its own model. As small and universal as it may be, you'll definitely not want to lose the new Razer charger as it'll cost you $179 USD a pop.
