First Impression

The Inateck 60W PD Charger with Dual USB-C Ports has a similar appearance to its single USB-C port cousin. Both have a glossy black finish that is reflective. Unlike the single port version, the dual port is larger. And it lacks a foldable prong. But in exchange it offers a variety of power output options. And plug adapters that work around the world.

Dual USB-C Chargers & Safely Charging the Switch

This is one of my first dual USB-C port chargers. Such chargers were rare until late 2018. Now we’re seeing more such chargers by known brands.

Before I had 2+ USB-C port chargers flagged with a warning. This was based on my initial reading of Nathan K’s overdraw warning with the Switch. Upon re-reading his posts, learning more about split PDO, and my own (albeit less technical) testing I’ve removed the warning.

The current generation of chargers are more advance. We’ve seen no split PDO related issues with other power banks. In fact Nintendo licensed two Anker power banks for use with the Switch. And my testing of this and other dual USB-C port chargers have shown no issues.

You can read more about Nathan K’s Switch testing and 2+ USB-C port chargers on my Safely Charging the Switch page.

Port 1 vs Port 2

Inateck’s dual USB-C port charger offers a lot of output options. The cost of that is remembering the difference between its two ports. They include a reference card to help you out.

Port 1 (Top)

5V/3A, 9V/1.66A

The top port is for smaller USB-C devices: phones, tablets, and accessories. Devices that are good with 5V/3A and no more. It does offer 9V at a reduced current for fast charging iPhone 8 and X models using a USB-C to Lightning cable.

Port 2 (Bottom)

5V/3A, 9V/3A, 12V/3A, 15V/3A, 20/2.25A

The bottom port is for larger USB-C devices: Nintendo Switch, large power banks, and laptops. It’ll do everything the top port can do, and more.

With both ports connected, the bottom port offers up to 45W without disturbing the top port’s 15W output. For a total of 60W.

If you only use the bottom port it can offer 20V/3A or 60W. The Switch doesn’t make use of 20V power, but 13 and 15-inch laptops do. In this configuration they can work under heavy loads and continue charging.

Worldwide Access With 3 Plugs

The three included plug adapter may seem American and European centric. But much of the world uses one of those three types of outlets.

The International Electrotechnical Commission has an online tool for looking up the plug type of any country. You can also search by plug type. The three plug adapters work with Type A (US), Type C (EU), and Type G (UK). If you look at the country list for each you’ll see more than two continents worth of candidates. With Type B and D being variants of A and C that leaves 13 other types. Check those and you’ll find the listed countries tend to also support one of the included plug types. Australia is the largest country that doesn’t support any of the included adapters.

As with most USB-C wall chargers, it accepts 100-240V. So no need for a power converter, in any country.

Summary
Inateck 60W PD Charger with Dual USB-C Ports and accessories.

Inateck 60W PD Charger with Dual USB-C Ports and accessories.

The Inateck 60W PD Charger with Dual USB-C Ports can charge a wide range of USB-C devices. Its dual USB-C ports offer a level of power output control, as well as charging two devices at once. Early adopters of USB-C are likely to have two of more such devices by now. Probably why these dual port chargers are now coming to market.

The included cable and plug adapters are all you need for most countries, with the notable exceptions of Australia and New Zealand. The downside is you don’t get foldable prongs with any of the adapters. But as they can be removed it shouldn’t get snagged on anything in your bag.

You will want to memorize which outlet offers what level of output. The top outlet is best for small devices. It’ll charge the Switch while you play, but not nearly as fast as the bottom outlet. The bottom outlet works with everything, from phone to 13-inch laptop. If you only use the bottom outlet you can get 20V/3A. That will match most 13-inch laptop’s own chargers and keep a 15-inch laptop happy under most conditions. Inateck includes a reference card.

The glossy black appearance won’t be to everyone’s liking. It was so reflective I saw myself in some pictures I took. As sleek as it looks out of the box it will show fingerprints and smudges. But I haven’t seen a different looking charger than can do the same dual USB-C outputs this model can.

Inateck has U.S. based support contacts (web, email, phone) and warranty service.

Bottom Line

The Inateck 60W PD Charger with Dual USB-C Ports is perfect for international travel. Or traveling with a range of USB-C devices. It’ll handle USB-C phones, tablets, power banks, the Switch, and laptops. While plugging into most wall outlets around the world.
