Satechi ST-UC165GM is an elegant 165W USB-C 4-Port PD GaN Charger
The days of charging just one device are long gone. Back in the day, people just charged their smartphone. Nowadays, they charge their phone, tablet, wireless headphones, smartwatch, and more. And so, things can get quite messy when needing to charge them all at once. You can use multiple individual charging adapters, of course, but outlets are usually installed in pairs. With that said, you can add a power strip to gain extra outlets, but that can be an eyesore. Instead, a multi-charger can help keep things tidy.
GaN chargers are all the rage these days, as they offer a lot of wattage in a tiny package. Today, Satechi launches a new multi-charger that uses GaN technology. It offers four USB-C ports for with a maximum output of 165 watts. It even comes with a removeable stand to hold it vertically. Not only can it charge mobile devices, but laptops too!
"The new 165W USB-C 4-Port PD GaN Charger features next-gen Gallium Nitride technology to provide faster charger and better power efficiency for MacBook Pro M1, iPad Pro, and more. With four USB-C PD ports, Satechi’s GaN charger powers multiple devices at once to ensure desktop devices stay powered while working from home or in office and while on-the-go. Its advanced power distribution automatically adjusts based on the number of ports used and devices connected, resulting in 100W, 100W/60W, 60W/60W/45W or 100W/30W/30W, 60W/45W/30W/30W splits, up to 165W total," says Satechi.
The company further says, "As with all of Satechi's chargers, the 165W USB-C 4-Port PD GaN Charger includes CE and ETL certifications to ensure a quick, yet safe charge for connected devices. No need to worry about devices overheating or cords getting tangled. Simply detach the power cord and place the charger on the convenient stand for easy storage and secure placement on any desktop surface."
