Apple Begins Selling Mophie's New Ultra-Compact USB-C Chargers Designed for iPhones, iPads, and Macs

Mophie today announced the release of two new ultra-compact USB-C chargers designed for iPhones, iPads, and Macs, with 30W and 67W options available.

Designed with GaN (gallium nitride) material, the chargers are smaller, lighter, and more power efficient than traditional silicon-based chargers, including Apple's own 30W and 67W chargers. Both chargers feature foldable prongs, a single USB-C port with fast charging capabilities, and a two-meter USB-C to USB-C cable included in the box.

The 30W charger is ideal for use with iPhones, iPads, and the M1 MacBook Air, while the 67W charger is suitable for the 14-inch MacBook Pro and more.

The only GaN charger that Apple has released to date is its 140W USB-C power adapter, included with the latest 16-inch MacBook Pro and sold separately. Apple is also rumored to be planning a new 35W charger with dual USB-C ports that could utilize GaN material, with leaked images suggesting the charger will feature foldable prongs.

Mophie's new chargers can be ordered through Apple's online store, with the 30W option priced at $44.95 and the 67W option priced at $69.95. The chargers can also be ordered from Mophie's parent company ZAGG (30W here and 67W here), which is currently offering customers 30% off when they buy two or more products during the same transaction.

Note: Mophie's press release as originally published indicated that the 67W charger had two USB-C ports, but we've received confirmation from Mophie that this was an error and that the charger only has one port.

In other words, they're selling a third-party charger that costs a lot more than a comparable product from Anker. Cool!

Which is better — Mophie or Anker?
In general, in all such questions of one brand vs. another, there's no definitive answer. There can be a tremendous product and the worst product both sharing one brand. To judge tech product vs. product, you have to do the searches, read the reviews and consider a specific product vs. another specific product.

Please be seated to read this next bit... even the Apple brand is not immune to duds that are still branded Apple. See this summary of some classics ('https://www.macworld.com/article/342225/worst-apple-products-of-all-time.html') for example.

Both Mophie & Anker make some great stuff... and some dud stuff... just like everyone else.

I have no ability to comment on their difference, other than what people have said about cost, but I can confidently say that I have a bunch of various usb-a and usb-c anker chargers; they're absolutely excellent.

Belkin and Mophie are both always overpriced and you can typically get a similar Anker product for far less. Not sure how they keep themselves in business overcharging for basic items like cables and chargers.

But Anker only does 7.5w charging for the phone and 5w for everything else. Doesn't the Belkin do 15w and the fast charge for the watch?
Anker has plenty of USB-C chargers that are not wireless, and which will charge at far more than 7.5 or 5W.

Um, is Apple going to stop making chargers now, or at some point in the future? They dropped their wifi hardware which was odd IMO.
Their Wifi stuff was great as it was both your router AND your backup system. Sure people don't really upgrade that stuff often, so probably didnt have a LOT of profit from it, but it was a REALLY solid system and one of the first that took advantage of repeaters.
