Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great value for the money
Considering its versatility and attractive design, PowerGear's $60 price tag seems very reasonable.
Pro It has a neat and functional design
The all-white adapter with smooth edges is a real eye candy. And its shape makes it easy to wrap the cord around to avoid tangling or breaking.
Pro It's very safe to use
This adapter has a variable power output that adjusts automatically to your device, be it a laptop, a tablet, or a smartphone, the likelihood that it will start overheating or fry the battery is very low.
Pro The charging cable is included
The PowerGear comes with a USB-C charging cable, no need to go and look for it separately.
Pro The power output is decent, although not very high
You can replace most original USB-C chargers with the wattage of 45 W or less, which includes primarily 12 and 13-inch laptops. You would be able to charge the 2015 Google Pixel Chromebook and 2016 Razer Blade Stealth at full speed,
Pro It doesn't take up a lot of space in the bag
Although Innergie's PowerGear is not the smallest adapter out there, it's reasonably easy to fit in a bag. And it's not too heavy, around the weight of a billiard ball.
Con The power output is too low for a lot of popular laptops
If you own a laptop that is bigger than 13 inches, you should definitely check if the wattage of this adapter is high enough for your computer. It wouldn't be able to replace a charger with power output over 45 W, so it won't charge a 13-inch MacBook Pro, for example.
Con The charging cable can't be removed
The charging cable is permanently attached to the adapter, which makes it a little less convenient to pack; this also means that if you damage the cord, you will have to replace the whole unit.
