18W USB Type-C Charger Gets Your Mobile Device Ready in a Hurry, Wherever You Are
This single-port USB charger lets you quickly and safely charge your Apple mobile device, including iPhone, iPad and iPod devices. Plug the charger into any NEMA 1-15R, NEMA 5-15R or NEMA 5-15/20R AC outlet to ensure your device charges at its fastest possible speed. The USB-C port supports USB Power Delivery (PD) 3.0 charging up to 18W (5V 3A and 9V 2A).

Both Ends Feature Reversible Connectors
Connect the reversible C94 Lightning plug to your Apple device for charging and the reversible USB-C connector to the wall charger. The cable’s fumble-free plugs connect in either direction to ensure an immediate connection on the first try. The Lightning cable is MFi-certified for use with the latest generation of iPhone, iPad and iPod devices.

Gallium Nitride Technology Allows High-Wattage Capacity in a Compact Package
This USB wall charger is smaller and lighter than most standard wall chargers that come with a laptop, measuring less than 2.5 cubic inches (4.1 cubic meters). Ideal for travel, it is designed using GaN technology, which has a higher power density than silicon and provides higher efficiency than standard USB-C fast chargers. It also stays cool during operation, despite its small size, meaning it won’t get hot while charging your device.

Built-In Auto-Sensing Adjusts to Proper Power Level to Get Your Device to 100%
The USB-C port features auto-sensing technology that automatically adjusts to your device’s appropriate power level. The unit protects against overheating, overcurrent and overcharging. In fact, it stops charging as soon as your device’s battery is at full capacity.

Folding Plug Design Perfectly Sized for Travel
The compact USB Type-C charger, small enough to fit in your hand, is easy to carry in your purse, suitcase or backpack. The NEMA 1-15P plug folds into the unit when not in use to shield it from damage and prevent it from snagging or scratching your bag’s contents.
