Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great value for the money
The PowerPort is a versatile laptop charger with great power output, additional USB-A ports, and a slick design, and all this comes for around $50.
Pro The design is very attractive
Black plastic housing with aluminum embedded around the ports gives the adapter a classy, expensive look.
Pro You can charge 4 other devices besides your laptop
In addition to your laptop, you can use the four additional USB-A ports to power up other devices - smartphones, tablets - all at the same time.
Pro Good power output
The 60 W power output allows this adapter to provide a speedy charge for most 13-inch laptops, as well as for phones and tablets. It is almost on par with Apple's original 61 W charger, powering a 13-inch MacBook Pro (2016) from 0 to 100% in about two hours.
Pro The adapter has great safety features
PowerPort has built-in surge and overheating protection, which is critical given that you can connect five devices at the same time.
Con It's incompatible with certain devices
The PowerPort will not work with the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S and HP Spectre x2 laptops.
Con It's a little bulky
The PowerPort is a rather large and bulky USB-C adapter. In terms of weight, it's slightly heavier than a can of soda, which is not always convenient to carry around.
Con Not suitable for charging larger laptops
If you have a bigger machine that requires higher power output than 60 W, the PowerPort will not be able to replace the original charger. For example, with a 15-inch MacBook Pro, it would at best stop the battery from draining but not increase the charge.
