Review: Ugreen Nexode 100W USB C Wall Charger 

I am currently in the midst of setting up a sling bag with a bunch of tech related items in it that I can grab at a moment’s notice and head out the door should I need to see a client. I’ll be detailing the items and the logic behind what’s in the bag in a coming post, but for now, I want to focus on one item that will be in that bag. Which is the Ugreen Nexode 100W USB C Wall Charger:

So what we have here is a USB-C charger that puts out 100W of power. That’s enough to charge a 2021 16″ MacBook Pro. And clearly anything else from phones to tablets.

There’s two USB-C ports and the charger will decide how to split the power between both ports. That way you can charge an iPhone and a MacBook Pro at the same time for example.

You get foldable prongs to keep things compact. If I could make a suggestion, the next version of this needs to be able to be used internationally as this would be a great travel item if you go overseas. Here’s why:

On the left is the adapter that came with my MacBook Pro which is a 140W adapter. On the right is the Ugreen adapter. Both use GaN technology to deliver power more efficiently, while generating less waste of energy and heat. But clearly Ugreen tried a lot harder to shrink the size of the adapter. Though I will admit that they both weigh about the same.

I tested this by running down my MacBook Pro to almost empty and then charging it up. I was able to get to just under 50% in 30 minutes which more or less matches the power adapter that came with the MacBook Pro. So in short, I have the ability to keep my MacBook charged using a power adapter that takes up less real estate. Plus it will charge anything else that I need to charge. This is a total win and it has earned a place in the sling bag that I am building.

I got my Ugreen Nexode 100W USB C Wall Charger on Amazon for $79 CAD minus $10 CAD off as there was a coupon that was on the product listing. Given Apple’s 140W charger is $120 CAD, and is physically bigger, the Ugreen charger is the clear choice for people on the go who need to ensure that their gear is fully charged at all times.
