Charging on the Go Gets Easier: The New Plugable Power 2015 USB-C2W 2-Port USB Smart Charger

Earlier this year Plugable introduced our popular USB-C5TX 5-Port 40W USB smart charger. However, 5 ports and a cable to the wall can be overkill when traveling. For your bag or purse, smaller and lighter is better. That’s where our new Plugable USB-C2W 2-Port travel charger shines. With its small size, two USB smart charge ports, and flip-up wall plug, it’s great for charging at the coffee shop or hotel room. And with the C2W’s smart IC built into each port, devices like iPhone 6 and 6 Plus charge up to twice as fast with the C2W than with their bundled power adapters.

Half the size of the C5TX, the new USB-C2W has a flip-out AC wall plug built in (for US, Canada, Japan), which means one less pesky power cable to haul around. It’s so small you can stick it in your pocket, making it the perfect charging solution when you’re on the move.

Tired of juggling a multitude of USB chargers for all the electronic devices you carry? The C2W USB smart charger can be the perfect replacement for the whole lot. It charges most cell phones, tablets, USB battery packs, handheld game consoles, e-readers, e-cigarettes, cameras, smart watches, fitness trackers, bicycle lights, and many more. You only need one outlet.

How does smart charging work? USB charging isn’t perfectly standardized. Different devices have different special handshakes to detect “their charger”. With the C2W, when you plug in your device, a chip built into the charger identifies the device connecting if possible, then selects the best charging mechanism for the fastest possible charge. Some devices like iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will choose to charge faster with the C2W than with their bundled power adapters. Devices choose how much and how fast to charge, but each USB port of the USB-C2W can supply up to 2.4A of charging current, sharing an impressive 4A, 20W total between both ports. That is enough power to an iPad and an iPhone simultaneously.
