The travel adapter market is facing the significant challenge of keeping up with the power demands of modern devices used by travellers. Fortunately, the new Chargeasap Zeus 270W GaN Travel Adapter offers a solution.
Chargeasap Zeus 270W Gan Travel Adapter
Boasting a total output of 270W across three USB-C ports and a single USB-A port, the Chargeasap Zeus can easily handle the latest MacBook Pro 16″ M2 Max with enough power for a tablet or smartphone.
And to prove that Zeus is delivering on its promise, Chargeasap has built a small digital display to monitor the power consumption of whatever devices it charges.
With a single adapter now able to cover almost every USB-powered device we travel with, could Zeus be the only adapter we need to pack?
Features //Chargeasap Zeus Travel Adapter
Zeus is not only a travel adapter that will work in over 200 countries, but it can power almost any USB-powered device you can throw at it, and many of them can be charged simultaneously.
This adapter has a triple USB-C configuration with a single USB-A port resulting in a maximum of four devices that can be charged at any moment, depending on their power requirements. Zeus has a maximum 270W power output across these ports.
The port breakdown and maximum power per port are as follows –
- USB-C1 140W
- USB-C2 100W
- USB-C3 100W
- USB-A1 36W
Built on GaN, or Gallium Nitride, this technology provides a more efficient and compact way to convert the voltage and current of electrical power. Therefore the Zeus travel adapter is smaller than most laptop chargers, can work in numerous countries and charge multiple devices simultaneously.
Meaning you can leave your laptop power brick at home. GaN technology also allows for faster charging of devices. It reduces energy loss during the conversion process, and with Power Delivery 3.0 on the main USB-C1 port, Zeus can charge a 16″ laptop as fast as the original charger.
To help users understand the power going to each attached device, Chargeasap has built in a 0.9″ OLED display that refreshes every 5 seconds to provide the output from each port.
Many travel adapters available today use a slide ‘n’ lock mechanism to change the power prongs for each country; Chargeasap has decided to use every millimetre of space to deliver power. This has resulted in interchangeable power prong plates that users must switch between.
The Zeus ships with four power attachment types; US, Australia, Europe and the UK. In total, these four options cover over 200 countries.
