For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with RAVPower to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a 61W USB-C Power Adapter and a USB-C to Lightning cable, which can be used to fast charge an iPhone or an iPad.

You can also use the USB-C Power Adapter for charging a Mac or an iPad Pro when combined with a USB-C to USB-C cable.

RAVPower's latest 61W PD USB-C charger uses gallium nitrate (GaN) technology, which allows it to be smaller than your average 61W power adapter. It's a good deal more compact than Apple's own 61W charger for the 13-inch MacBook Pro at 1.1 inch by 1.9 inches, making RAVPower's version more portable.

According to RAVPower, the charger, which is priced at $45 from Amazon right now, is the smallest 61W PD GaN charger on the market, coming in at 50 percent smaller than the comparable MacBook Pro charger.

You can get the power adapter in either black or white, and RAVPower says it comes equipped with safeguards to protect against overheating, overcharging, and short circuiting.

Paired with the 61W PD 3.0 GaN Wall Charger, RAVPower is giving away its new USB-C to Lightning cable, which can be used for fast charging an ‌iPhone‌. A few months back, Apple made the only USB-C to Lightning cables on the market, but recently opened up the specification to allow for MFi-certified third-party cables.

RAVPower's cable measures in at three feet long and it has reinforcing at the top to prevent it from fraying or breaking with repeated bending. RAVPower says it will hold up to more than 30,000 bends over its lifetime, and it is indeed Made for ‌iPhone‌ certified.
