CES 2019: Satechi Launches New Multi-Port USB-C Chargers Ideal for Latest iPad Pro, MacBook Air, and More

by

Satechi today at CES 2019 announced it has released two new power adapters, including a dual-port wall charger and a four-port travel charger.


The wall charger features one 18W USB-C Power Delivery port and one 12W USB-A port, while the travel charger features a pair of 60W and 18W USB-C Power Delivery ports and two USB-A ports with a total max output of 12W.

The 18W USB-C port on the wall charger is ideal for charging a 2018 iPad Pro or fast charging the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, or iPhone XR with a USB-C to Lightning cable. Fast charging an iPhone provides up to 50 percent battery life in just 30 minutes, according to Apple.

The four-port travel charger is ideal for not only the latest iPhone and iPad models, but larger devices such as the newest MacBook Air and Nintendo Switch.


The dual-port wall charger is available for pre-order for $29.99 in space gray on Satechi's website in the United States, with orders estimated to begin shipping on January 31. The four-port travel charger is available now for $69.99 on Amazon and Satechi's website and ships in an estimated one to two days.

Satechi does not include charging cables with either power adapter.

That four port one might be a good buy. Does anyone know if this uses gallium nitride like the new tiny Anker ones? If not I wonder if Anker will make one with even more ports using that newer gallium nitride technology which seems to be more efficient for PD.

Great, 2 ports. Where's the 6-port or 10-port USB-C chargers like there are for USB-A?

The problem is getting 10 60W ports in one device. Heck, even four 30W ports. Heat in a small enclosure and failure rates, fire hazards, etc.

These are 18W ports, not 60. 10 may be difficult but more than 2 should not be.

The travel one that has more ports has 60W.

My ideal travel charger would have one 60W for Macs, one 30W for iPad Pro, and four 18W. Maybe it would be possible with gallium nitride? I would be fine if it was two 18W and then two USB-A for our Apple Watches which don't need much power. Or even better if there were two Apple Watch pucks on the outside so I don't have to bring so many freaking things that I either forget or lose, lol.

Is it just me or is it really refreshing to see Apple working with USB-C in more products now?
