REVIEW – The oldsters at Shargeek have been on a roll these days. It wasn’t that way back that the Retro 35W Mac-shaped charger charmed its approach into the world, however the Retro 67 takes the nerd issue up a couple of notches with three USB-C ports and a inexperienced phosphor display impressed show with some “Matrix” film magic.

What’s within the field?
- Shargeek Retro 67 USB-C charger
In all probability crucial specs are the charging capabilities. Sure, it would put out 67W however solely on ONE charger port. It is going to do a combination and match once you add a 2nd or third machine. See the chart under.
Design and options
Right here it’s subsequent to an Apple 20W USB-C charger (proper).
I get the shivers taking a look at this. I like the colour brand and the fake floppy disk slot within the entrance.
The rear view of the Shargeek Retro 67 USB-C charger is simply pretty much as good, full with element of the battery backup door, energy swap, and plug. None of them are practical, in fact, however a pleasant homage to these of us who bear in mind.
The pixelated font on the highest is a pleasant contact, too.
It wasn’t essential, however the prongs fold into the physique. How good! It simply begs to be taken with you in your on a regular basis carry bag.
Shargeek despatched me color-matched USB cables (bought individually). Right here it’s offering energy to my iPad Professional. The show reads in watts.
I positioned an inline energy meter to see what was occurring. This beasty provided 14.8V to my iPad. Spectacular.
For these questioning, the charger exhibits the well-known “Matrix” falling inexperienced rain animation in standby. It’s not very vibrant and turns off robotically after 5 minutes with no load hooked up. There’s no danger of it retaining you up at night time.
What I like
- Compact with folding prongs
- Three USB-C ports
- Helpful show
What I’d change
- Barely brighter “display” would have been good
- You’ll be able to mount it on the wall, however why would you wish to?
I normally disguise chargers underneath the desk or on a wall. The Shargeek Retro 67 USB-C charger is the primary charger I wish to SHOW. That’s a primary!
