The Best USB-C Travel Charger (according to me)

I'm lucky enough to travel a fair bit and, like most people, that involves packing a lot of cables and chargers. Thankfully most devices have moved to USB (USB-C ideally), but the cables and wall warts can still quickly pile up and take up precious space in your carry-on.
I think this all-in-one charger is invaluable for keeping my phone, iPad, smartwatch and camera charged up on a trip.

My Solution

I think a ~65W GAN charger is a lifesaver for most people. There are a number of options on the market that are pretty comparable. The one I use from Zendure doesn't seem to be widely available anymore - if I needed a replacement today, the Anker Prime 67W is even smaller and would probably be my top pick.
Some common thoughts for all these devices:


  • Can replace a number of wall warts and adapters
  • 65W is enough to charge most laptops (including MacBooks), iPads, etc.
  • Charges 3 devices at once
  • GAN technology and folding prongs for even more compact storage
  • Most accept all common voltages, so you only need a basic plug adapter for different regions


  • The weight sits further from the wall, so it may not reliably stay in abused and loose airport outlets
  • Removes the redundancy of packing multiple smaller chargers


If you're shopping around, this form factor is extremely common. There are many cheaper options on Amazon, but I would personally stick to the more well known brand names for something I'm using to charge my expensive electronics and relying on to get me through a trip.
Here are some models that look appealing at the time of writing:
  • 2 USB-C ports and 1 USB-A for legacy devices (fitbits, some camera cables, etc):
  • Belkin BoostCharge 67W has 3 USB-C ports and sits closer to the wall. If you don't need USB-A, this gets rid of one of the only cons I have with these multi-charger.
