Lately, I’ve had this idea to build separate ready-to-go tech backpacks that make me feel prepared for any gadgety situation. One of those bags would be my lightweight pack containing a laptop and small Nintendo Switch kit, minimal cables, a battery bank, a mini toolkit, and crucially, one charging brick that can power any gadget I throw at it.
Ugreen’s 140-watt Nexode charger is a strong candidate to be that one charging brick. It’s a three-port GaN charger with flip-out prongs and up to 140W charging for a single USB-C device. Its ability to charge one device at that speed is thanks to support for the relatively new Power Delivery 3.1 protocol (or PD 3.1).
