We put the device to the test using the provided USB-C to USB-C cable. As promised, it efficiently charged up the MacBook Pro in a notably swift manner. When connected to a secondary device, the 96W power output divides into 65W and 30W.
While the charger is compatible with USB-C PD 3.0, it’s worth noting that the absence of PPS (Programmable Power Supply) might lead to slightly slower charging for certain devices like the Samsung Tab S7 FE or S23 Ultra smartphones, which see accelerated charging rates with PPS.
To sum up, this charger is best suited for individuals utilizing notebooks that are compatible with USB-C PD charging. It can still function with other devices supporting USB-C charging, although it won’t achieve the rapid charging speeds achievable with USB-C 3.0 PPS or Quickcharge 3/4.
At a price point of S$129, the charger isn’t positioned as a budget option. However, this is likely due to its commitment to a comprehensive two-year product warranty and an additional S$2,500 Connected Equipment Warranty (CEW). Notably, extensive testing has been conducted to ensure seamless compatibility with Apple products. Furthermore, the charger is conveniently available for purchase through the official Apple store.
