Apple's Rumored Dual USB-C Port Charger Allegedly Shown in Leaked Images

ChargerLAB today shared alleged images of Apple's unreleased 35W power adapter with dual USB-C ports, providing a first look at the accessory's potential design.

The images suggest that the charger will have a compact design with side-by-side USB-C ports, foldable prongs, and circular indents that would provide extra grip for removing the charger from a power outlet. 35W would be suitable for charging a wide range of Apple devices, such as iPhones, iPads, the latest MacBook Air, and the HomePod mini.

A reference to the power adapter was first uncovered last week in a document that was briefly published on Apple's website:

Use the Apple 35W Dual USB-C Port Power Adapter and a USB-C cable (not included) to charge your device. Connect a USB-C cable to either port on the power adapter, extend the electrical prongs (if necessary), then plug the power adapter firmly into the power outlet. Ensure the power outlet is easily accessible for disconnecting. Connect the other end of the cable to your device.

In early March, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo tweeted that Apple was working on a 30W power adapter with a new design. In a follow-up tweet, Kuo has since suggested that the 35W power adapter could be the same one that he was alluding to. Kuo said the charger is "nearing mass production" and would be released at some point in 2022.


Kuo said the charger would utilize gallium nitride (GaN) technology, allowing it to be smaller, lighter, and more power efficient than silicon-based chargers. Apple released its first GaN charger last year in the form of its 140W USB-C power adapter for the 16-inch MacBook Pro, and third-party brands like Anker and Belkin also offer GaN chargers.

Back in 2018, ChargerLAB's sister website Chongdiantou showed off real-world photos of Apple's then-unreleased 18W power adapter for iPhones.

You know it’s legit when it’s written that the USB-C cable is not included

Hard to tell from the renders, but if this block intrudes on an adjacent outlet, it’s a fail in my book. It looks like it would block both adjacent plugs in a power strip.

That's so big compared to the one Anker sells

And I don't like how wide it is, it should be a cube

it’s very similar to the single-port design with folding prongs used on the 3rd-generation and later iPad Pro in the UK, just with the US’s two prongs.

The ‘difference‘ is that in the UK, the overall size of the side into which the prongs fold absolutely doesn’t cover adjacent sockets, so the design works great here.
Attaching this so US folks can relate easier:

Rumors are rumors, but if that's the actual design it's a good one, and I'll probably pay whatever the farily stiff price is for one.

Apple makes very good little USB adapters, but it has always bugged me that you can't fold the prongs down like you can with the compact connector on their laptop bricks. The only other complaint is that you have to carry more than one if you want to charge multiple devices at once.

Both problems solved, and super compact.
