This handy accessory allows its users to test the output parameters of their chargers and provides information about their safety, effectiveness, and USB Type-C compatibility.

In the past, various chargers and cables that were not up to standard caused problems many times, including dangerous ones like fires and explosions. Satechi has just released a device that aims to help its users avoid such accessories, namely the Type-C Power Meter.

Described by its makers as "the perfect solution for monitoring your Type-C port's power," the Satechi Type-C Power Meter can monitor power while charging a Type-C device, but can also report the details about the voltage, current input, and mAh output. The device's voltage range is 4 to 20 V, while its current range is 50 mA to 10 W. Finally, the readable total is 65 W.

Carrying a price tag of just $29.99 USD, the Satechi Type-C Power Meter comes with one-year warranty and is very light, weighing less than 0.02 pounds. Those who want to ensure their chargers and cables are safe to use and compatible with their new USB Type-C devices should check the official video below for more details.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
