Design

GaN technology continues to shrink chargers, for which I’m grateful because it sure beats packing a large laptop charger when I travel. The RAVPower RP-PC145 65-watt Power Delivery 2-port charger features a compact design with foldable plugs.

There is a small blue LED that lights up any time the charger is receiving power. The LED is not very bright and should be fine for a dark bedroom at night.

The dimensions of the charging block are 2.2 in x 2.2 in x 1.2 in. It’s only a little bit larger than the Apple 20W USB-C charger, but gives you twice the ports and 3 times the power!

Features

  • Two USB-C ports: This allows you to charge two devices at the same time, such as a laptop and a phone. It’s important to note that the two ports combined cannot exceed 65 watts (so if one port is using 45 watts, the remaining port can only output a maximum of 20 watts)
  • Foldable plugs: Being able to fold the prongs makes this charger ideal for travel.
  • Dim LED: The blue LED is dim and shouldn’t keep you up at night if you’re using the charger in the bedroom.
