BaseUS car charger. It’s 120W and doesn’t sacrifice the lighter. The best of both worlds

Edwin Chabuka Avatar

It’s an ordinary-looking car charger by BaseUS with 2 USB ports but is rated at 120W. Each port can push out a maximum of 30W with multiple output modes including 15W, 18W, and 20W. 

What gets interesting is the back of it which is a cigarette lighter socket like the one you would plug this in. So if you are a smoker you don’t have to compromise between charging your devices and lighting up your puff. But also the lighter port here is rated at 60W and if you want you can connect another car accessory to this car charger like an FM modulator or another car charger for even more ports if you are probably going on a family road trip and there are just a lot of gadgets to charge.

It’s really compact, it’s got a solid build quality made with a combination of aluminum and high-quality plastic and it also supports both 12V and 24V systems so it works in both small and large vehicles. Just a simple and functional piece of tech. This one is going for US$25 at Mi Store Zim and if you are interested you can click here.

    Offlate I have been interested in such pieces of technology which deliver fast charging whilst on the move, not just normal charging. Having access to as high as 120W is highly beneficial as you can charge all electronics on the road, laptop,,phone, iPad.

      Big deal ! How about the AC chargers that deliver up to 120W any shopping suggestions?

    can BaseUS car charger also power a laptop

      Lighters get very hot, hence the metal shield in the socket. I wouldn’t recommend piggybacking a charger as it doesn’t seem to have similar protection. Technically, it provides 30W charging, the rating of 120W is a marketing trick to confuse you.

        You are the one who is confused .

          Can it power a 120w device? 🙄🤦🏾‍♂️

        I second that the 220w is a marketing gimmick. The two USB ports each give out 30w making a total of 60w combined. Then the back also pushes out 60w making a total combined output of 120w. On its own it won’t charge anything that needs over 30w from the two USB ports. You might charge at60w if you get an extra car charger that pushes 60w
