What is a travel charger?
A travel charger often gets confused with a travel adapter. The two are very different things and they’re used for different situations.
If you’ve ever traveled to countries halfway across the world, you’ll realize that the formation of their outlet prongs look different than what you’re used to. That’s because these sockets have a different voltage and wattage. So, for example, if your device operates at 110/120 volts, which is standard for American devices, you’ll need something that “increases” or converts this into 220/240 volts, which is almost every other country besides the U.S. and Canada.
That’s what travel chargers do. They convert or step down the power flowing from these other sockets to your device so that the power of the new current doesn’t overwhelm and basically “fry” your device. However, as the name suggests, they also charge your device when you’re traveling to a new country.
For this reason, universal travel chargers usually have triple protection against overcharging, short-circuiting, and overheating. Overheating is a significant concern because you need to be able to use your phone while it’s charging. The best travel chargers feature a few ports where you can plug your devices in with a USB cable, safely, and then plug these devices into the wall for fast, safe, and efficient charging.
Okay, this is where many people get confused. Most devices built for travel today, such as laptops and smartphones, are dual voltage. This means the manufacturer designed the adapter to be a travel adapter. The adapters that you use to plug in and charge your devices are the same adapter that you can use in another country around the world.
But you still need something that will fit the orientation of the sockets in foreign countries. Even though your voltage is all taken care of, you’ll need something that, like a jigsaw piece, fits your device’s adapter into the outlets of other countries. That’s what a travel adapter helps you do. Travel adapters don’t necessarily charge up your device.
What is a converter?
Technically, modern universal travel chargers are converters. Before we had travel chargers — essentially, devices that can charge a phone and convert the voltage — travelers would rely on converters to change the voltage from one level to the other.
This allows devices manufactured in one part of the world (such as the U.S. and Canada) to operate in another part of the world by “stepping down” or converting the current to the destination country’s power supply.
Another interesting thing to note about converters is that they’re still required and used today for electronic appliances. These include items like hairdryers, curling irons, small fans, or anything that has a mechanical motor.
Items that have a computer chip, such as smartphones, mobile devices, tablets, laptops, etc., usually don’t need this type of traditional converter. They may need a travel charger/travel adapter to plug into the wall. Many manufacturers will make dual voltage devices, so you don’t need to worry about bringing a separate converter along.
What is the difference between a travel charger and a travel adapter?
Travel chargers are the best tools if you need to both convert a current and charge your devices at the same time. A great example of this is our newly-launched G6 USB-C 61W travel adapter with GaN. \
It does both — it charges your single voltage devices in foreign countries by converting the current and it acts as a travel adapter by including multiple prongs for worldwide socket compatibility.
Usually, a travel adapter would allow you to connect your device to the foreign country’s wall socket. But, depending on specs, it might not include the converter function. If you have a single voltage device, you still need a converter to change the current.
What phones are our travel chargers compatible with?
To help you truly do away with all those extra cables, chargers, and adapters, we created a universal travel charger that is compatible with any device that relies on a USB-C connector.
The G6 61W travel charger with GaN also includes two USB-A ports, for older devices or storage devices, and a 4-pin multi-region AC output.
Such devices include:
- Mobile devices
- Laptops (and the 61W allows enough power that you can charge a Macbook Pro 13-inch and an Air at max speed)
- Nintendo Switches
Imagine being able to take all the adapters and chargers you have, gathering them up in a pile, and disposing of them — forever. The G6 USB-C Travel Adapter with GaN is the last and only all-in-one universal travel charger you’ll ever need.
As one of the best travel chargers available today, the G6 allows you to plug in and charge up all your digital devices with USB connectors into one single unit while delivering high-speed charges to even the most heavy-duty of devices.
