These days technology is everywhere and everybody owns at least one portable device (phone, tablet, laptop etc.) but these devices need to have their batteries charged so that we can use them. While devices that you buy do come with a charger, if you are like me I don’t like keep unplugging it when I need to take it with me and I like to keep a spare in my backpack.
Inateck have a large range of innovative technology related products and I was sent their 60W PD USB C UCC1003 Black. This is a USB C fast charger for MacBook Pro 2017/2018, iPhone 8/8P/X as well as an iPad Pro, Samsung S9 phones and other USB C devices. It is PD3.0 supported offering 15W, 27W, 45W and 60W four-level power output (5V/3A, 9V/3A, 15V/3A, 20V/3A) and can intelligently recognize devices that support the PD protocol, which enables the charger to deliver the optimal charging scheme.

If your device’s original charging adapter is not the USB Type C port, then our charger won’t charge your device. So please make sure your USB-C port is charging enabled before purchasing our charger.
The package comes with 1x 60W Charger 1x 2m C-C Charging cable and 1x EU/UK/US plugs.
Overall, this is a great little charger. The version I received (UCC1003) only has one charging port but there is a dual version available if you required two ports. As well as offering a fast charge on the phone I used (Samsung Note 9), charging the phone in under an hour. It also comes with a long 2 metre charging cable (other chargers I have used generally have about 1 metre), while this is a simple feature for me it makes it a cut above the rest.
As for the charger, it has a little bit of weight to it and feels very good quality. I have been using it for about a week now and it charges the phone well and the 2 metre cable just makes it so much easier to use.
If you need a spare or replacement USB C charger then I can highly recommend Inateck, while it is not the cheapest on the market it is great quality, value for money and offers a lot of technology in a little unit to charge different devices with different power requirements using its multi-level power output. And for Apple users it can charge your supported device faster than the Apple charger (you will need an original C-lightning cable).
An excellent charger and a must have.
