CES 2018 bug Satechi is doing its part to ease our move to USB-C. The consumer electronics company’s latest device is a 75-watt USB Type-C travel charger smaller than a deck of cards.

The space gray charger, which made an appearance at this week’s CES in Las Vegas, can charge up to four devices at once. It packs four charging ports: one USB-C, two USB-A and one Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0.

The charger is compatible with the newest generation of iPhone, iPad, MacBook and MacBook Pro, and will also work with the Nintendo Switch, Samsung Galaxy S8 and PCs with USB-C ports.

Satechi was among the first accessories maker to offer hubs and adapters as companies, including Apple, rolled out new devices with USB-C, the emerging standard. Now that Apple has moved the entire MacBook line to USB-C only, a variety of companies make USB-C docks, dongles and chargers for every need and occasion.

The new Satechi travel charger can adjust to voltage requirements in different countries, featuring an input range of 100 to 240 volts.

The USB-C port supports fast charging for the iPhone X, the iPhone 8 series and the iPad Pro with Apple’s USB-C-to-Lighting cable.

The Satechi Type-C 75W Travel Charger is available now for $64.99 on the company’s website.
