Satechi 108W Pro USB-C PD Charger won’t split power among your devices

The number of our electronic devices may be multiplying but the sockets we charge them from definitely aren't. Even in homes and offices, charging ports may be a diminishing commodity and typical USB hubs don't exactly push out enough watts to meet the hungriest of gadgets. At CES 2020, Satechi is unveiling a new 108W Pro Desktop Charger that will supply all the power that your devices need, no matter how much that may be.

Satechi Trio Wireless Charging Pad is made for your iPhone and its friends

Remember the AirPower, one of Apple's embarrassments that will be forgotten in a few years? The failure of a first-party wireless charging mat opened the doors for accessory makers to try and fill in the gaping hole left by the canceled product. And to no one's surprise, such "alternatives" follow the same formula but just give it a different spin. Like Satechi's new Trio Wireless Charging Pad that will let you wirelessly charge one iPhone, one AirPods, and one Apple Watch and nothing more.

Satechi’s USB-C Power Meter tries to make sense of the Type-C mess

USB Type-C may have promised to solve our cable confusion forever, but uncertainty about charging voltages and safe power delivery have left even fans of the reversible connection scratching their heads. The connector - which is used both for USB 3.1 and Thunderbolt 3, lending its own uncertainty to the mix - is notable because it can be used to deliver sufficient power to recharge a laptop, while simultaneously carrying data and even video at the same time. Unfortunately that flexibility has turned shopping for USB-C accessories into something of a minefield.

Satechi USB Type-C hub has (almost) all the ports you need

The finalization of USB Type-C was welcomed by many. Hooray for reversible USB plugs! Their adoption by big tech giants, particularly by Apple and later by Google, was similarly praised. There is, however, one wrinkle in that otherwise lofty plan. Accessory makers aren't able to adapt fast enough, still stuck with USB Type A and micro USBs because of their more widespread use. Luckily, adapters are here to rescue the day. Like Satechi's new Type-C USB 3.0 3-in-1 Combo Hub that lets you connect almost all your peripherals in style.
