The inexpensive Baseus charger can charge up to three devices simultaneously at up to 65 W total. Not bad for a universal charger that's just a fraction of the size of most other chargers.

The Baseus USB-C charger is $15 USD off at the moment for a final price of $35. Unlike most other cheaper USB chargers, this particular model includes 3 USB ports (2x USB-C and 1x USB-A) to charge up to three devices simultaneously at up to 65 W total.

Perhaps the best feature of the Baseus charger is its foldable prongs for easier transporting or storing. In comparison, most chargers that are included with smartphones or laptops have fixed prongs that can be annoying to work with.

A drawback to the Baseus charger is its shape. While small and compact at just 3.2 x 3.6 x 7.5 cm, it is over two times longer than it is wide which means that the charger will likely droop when connected to some wall outlets. This can be easily observed when connecting the charger to an outlet on an airplane where the weight of the charger may disconnect the prongs from the wall.

Aside from the above, this is still a solid USB-C charger especially given the price. The 130 W USB-C Razer charger, for example, is over 5 times more expensive than this Baseus sale. The packaging doesn't include any cables, however, and so users will have to provide their own USB-C to USB-C or USB-A charging cables.
