Travel chargers are not all alike. The traditional adapter, a block with a few different prong types and maybe a few USB ports, is basically a passthrough that sends juice from the mains to your wall wart. But what if you could replace that homely cube with something a bit cooler?
That’s where the EZQuest UltimatePower 120W GaN USB-C PD Wall Charger comes into play. The charger features two USB-C ports and a single USB-A port. It uses a Gallium Nitride (GaN) charging tech that reduces the size and temperature coefficient of the device.
I tested this device on the road and it works exactly as advertised. I especially liked the little US to Europe adapter that fits right over the plug and doesn’t require you to remove the original plug. It can charge a laptop, Nintendo Switch, and iPad without issue.
Overall I like this little charger. Beware, though: the charger gives off a noticeable whine when plugged into EU voltage of 220 volts. It’s not bad but it could annoy the sensitive.
The charger costs $69 on Amazon. Similar GaN chargers from Anker can be found for a little less but they don’t include a cable or adapter. The bottom line is that this product works and includes a number interesting touches that make it interesting for folks who need to hit the road with 120W devices.
