Belkin 3 Port USB-C 67W GAN charger powers laptop by day & recharges 3 USB-C devices at night

    On first glance looking at the Belkin 3 Port USB-C Wall Charger with PPS 67W + USB-C to USB-C Cable you might think why is it worth spending $89.85 on?

    After all your USB-C powered laptop already has a power cord and you probably have several USB-C phone chargers in your home.

    There are three reasons why this Belkin charger is worth buying:

    The first is Gallium nitride (GAN)

    GaN is an emerging semiconductor material gaining traction in charger technology. Although it has been used for LED production since the 1990s and solar cell arrays in satellites, its application in chargers is relatively new.

    The primary advantage of GaN in this context is its ability to generate less heat. By minimizing heat output, components can be packed more densely, enabling the creation of smaller yet equally powerful and safe chargers.

    Unlike traditional semiconductor materials, GaN is a crystalline substance capable of conducting significantly higher voltages. Electrical currents can flow through GaN components more rapidly than through silicon, resulting in faster processing speeds. Additionally, GaN exhibits superior efficiency, leading to reduced heat generation.

    The lightweight and compact nature of GaN chargers make them ideal for travel. With sufficient power to charge a range of devices, from phones and tablets to laptops, a single GaN charger could potentially meet most individuals’ charging needs while on the go.

    The second is 67W Programmable Power Supply (PPS)

    As you can see below my Lenovo Thinkpad laptop is supplied with quite bulky USB-C and mains socket power cables plugged into both ends of a large 65W power adaptor.

    In comparison the Belkin charger and included long USB-C cable is tiny.

    Thanks to advancements in technology like GAN and PPS the Belkin charger has powered my laptop all day just as well as the original cables and power adaptor but without taking up so much space and weight.

    The third is 3 USB-C ports

    Having 3 USB-C ports means this Belkin charger can easily charge 3 items like a tablet, phone and speaker at once without any problems.

    There are many potential other combinations like tablet/phone/smartwatch or phone/phone/phone for a family on holidays.

    if all 3 ports are used at once the total power output is 65W maximum across the three. The top one is fastest at 25W and the other two are 20W.

    Those reasons are why the title to this story is Belkin 3 Port USB-C 67W GAN charger powers laptop by day & recharges 3 USB-C devices at night because that’s exactly what you can do.

    All you need is this charger, the included long USB-C cable and two other USB-C cables and you can travel much lighter compared to carrying the original laptop charger and 3 other USB-C chargers.
