It’s a Type-C world but that doesn’t mean you need to carry colossal charging bricks for every gadget, big or small. These tiny heavy hitters can juice up a MacBook and a smartphone faster than it takes your Maggi to prepare (this is an exaggeration). Here are two of the best-in-class charging bricks we use every day to tank up almost every Type-C gadget.
GaN chargers: Belkin Boost Charge Pro vs Stuffcool Neo 67W
Unboxing smartphones and finding out that the charging brick is missing?
Yes, we know that Belkin has 2watts less on paper but that’s not going to make the grass any less green on this side. In fact, Belkin has identical power delivery standards as Stuffcool.
The Stuffcool Neo 67W is designed to take the burden of charging your Apple MacBook Pro M2 laptop and your Apple iPhone. Just like the Belkin, the Stuffcool Neo 67W supports PPS protocol along with standard PD for Android users.
The basics are the same. The Belkin’s 65W of power does everything the Stuffcool does. It can fast-charge smartphones (Android and Apple), MacBooks, iPads and a few Ultrabooks as well. There is really no drop-off in charging speed either.
A similar story to the Stuffcool Neo 67W. It can fast charge almost all Android smartphones and even the Apple MacBook. The iPhones also fast charge with this and it doesn’t really heat up much either.
Ok, here’s the kicker. The Belkin’s top port does 65W of charge only when the bottom port doesn’t have any cables plugged into it. You can tell from the product image which ports do what.
Stuffcool is also the same but here both ports do 67W of charge when the second port is free. When you use it simultaneously, the bottom port does 47W and the top 20W.
The Belkin is available for 3,999 meanwhile the Stuffcool Neo 67W charger is available for 4,499. You can’t go wrong with either but Belkin has the price as well as features on its side. The Stuffcool Neo 67W also has a blue LED on the charger telling you when the socket is delivering power. It’s good if you don’t have switches for your sockets but at night we found that LED is bright. It’s quite bright in pitch darkness.
