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.

  • Total power output: 130 W
  • Compatible with Power Delivery 3.0 devices
  • 2x USB-C ports (100 W each)
  • 2x USB-A ports (18 W each)
  • Folding plug prongs
  • 3.2 x 7.7 x 6.2 mm
  • 349 grams

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
