UGREEN's latest power brick has 4 ports: 3 USB type Cs and 1 USB type A; therefore, it may suit the need of many users with multiple devices that can charge at up to 65 watts (W). The OEM also claims that it will be smaller than its 61W Apple counterpart. However, only the end of its new crowdfunding campaign may supply the proof of that.
Deirdre O'Donnell,

UGREEN has launched its latest 65W USB charger on Indiegogo. This charging accessory has apparently been "designed for Apple fans", although it may also suit those already committed to the USB C-to-USB C-cable life. These ports are rated for the USB Power Delivery (USB-PD) 3.0 and 2.0 standards, as well as Qualcomm Quick Charge (QC) 4.0 through 2.0 and a handful of other fast-charging standards.

Therefore, it is rated to (for example) charge an iPhone X by 50% in 30 minutes, and may also charge other devices (such as the new 13-inch MacBook Pro) at normal speeds. However, it is also projected to weigh just 165 grams and have a smaller footprint than that of the standard Apple 61W brick.

Alternatively, it could be compatible with a Nintendo Switch, newer Dell XPS 13 or 15, Android phone or a range of other USB type C-powered devices. It is also to be equipped with gallium nitride (GaN), the state of the art in charging technology.

This new 4-port ("3C+1A") charger currently starts at US$27 via its new Indiegogo page - a price that UGREEN asserts will be a 50% discount on its eventual retail price. Alternatively, there is a second SKU (the first-listed reward) with a single USB type C ("1C") port that currently starts at $19 (or 51% off retail) at the early-bird level. It is set to ship worldwide from (as UGREEN projects) June 2020.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
