Satechi's new USB-C PD car charger and Lightning cable can fast charge your devices on the go

Satechi today expanded its range of USB-C accessories with the addition of a 72W USB-C PD car charger as well as a new USB-C to Lightning cable, allowing you to fast charge your compatible iOS devices on the move.

As well as a USB-C connector, the car charger features a USB-A port so you can power up two devices simultaneously. The USB-C port delivers a fast charge up to 60W for compatible laptops, tablets and phones, and the additional 12W USB port is great for hooking up a second device on your next road trip. Design-wise, it looks pretty slick with a brushed aluminum finish that matches your silver or space gray Apple gear. It plugs into any standard cigarette port and has built-in protections against overheating and short-circuiting.

The second new product introduced is a USB-C to Lightning cable that enables iPhone and iPad users to fast charge their devices if used with a compatible USB-C wall charger, or Satechi's own USB-C car charger. While Apple only provides a standard 5W USB charger with the iPhone, fast charging has been supported since the iPhone 8 debuted and it's also present in more recent iPad models. Satechi's 6-foot cable allows an iPhone X to go from empty to 50% in just 30 minutes and supports data transfer and syncing when hooked up to your computer's USB-C port. The cable is also extra durable thanks to its braided nylon construction. That helps it stay tangle-free, too.

Both new products are available to order now at Satechi and you can check out the rest of Satechi's USB-C lineup at Amazon.
