If you own a lot of gadgets that comes with USB Type-C ports including the Apple’s latest MacBook Pro, this accessory is for you! NuPower 60W power adapter can charge two gadgets simultaneously and faster than the device’s stock charger. Let’s take a closer look at this power adaptor and see what it has to offer!

Unboxing and Specifications

In the box, we got the power brick itself, a six feets two prong (US version) power cable and a USB Type-C to Type-C cable. It also comes with a year of warranty, but there is no warranty card or quick setup manual included.

  • Dimension: 106 X 52 X 21 mm
  • Weight: 4.8 oz
  • Input: 100-240 ~ volt 1.5 A
  • Output: 60 watts total
    Type A: 12W (5V 2.4A)
    Type-C: 60W (5V @ 6A, 9V A 5A, 15V @ 4A, 20V @ 3A)

Design

The power brick is black and compact, made with plastic and carry round edges. It can easily be stored in your backpack, so you can carry it anywhere and use it. On the top is the NewerTech logo and below is some information about the adapter along with two wide rubber feets to keep it steady on your desk. The power port is at the back and two USB ports on the front; one USB Type A and one USB Type-C.

Features

  • NuPower Adapter charges fast with up to 60W power.
  • It can charge two devices simultaneously; one USB Type-C and one USB Type-A compatible.
  • USB Type-C to C cable is included for smartphones and laptops with USB Type-C charging ports.

Performance

The NuPower power adapter doesn’t stand for the build quality we expect from a $60 power brick. The USB Type-C port is good, but the Type-A port is a bit loose, the USB doesn’t fit right into the port. However, the power adapter does it’s job perfectly what it’s made for. It charges two devices side by side easily and quickly, it charged up a smartphone with 3000 mAh battery full in an hour and a tablet with 7700 mAh battery in two and half hour using Type-A. The Type-C port charges smartphones faster than stock charger which we got with the smartphone.

Usability

The NuPower Power adapter is suitable for charging your smartphone and MacBook 2016 or you can charge two smartphones including one with Type-C port and one with mini USB port. And it’s good that the Type-C cable is included and it is also Type-C to C cable, so you don’t need to see before plugging it in your device.

Pros

  • Lightweight and compact
  • USB Type-C cable included

Cons

  • Build quality is not premium

Verdict

The NuPower Power Adapter is the best companion for USB Type-C devices like smartphones and the new MacBook 2016. Priced at $49, you can buy it now from macsales.com. You don’t need to buy a power extension to charge two devices. Also you can charge them quickly whether they support it or not. This adapter is small and lightweight so you can use it while travelling. The only negative point which I saw is the build quality of USB Type-A port.
