Travelers typically have a bag full of wall chargers to dig through. Fortunately, the Aukey Omnia Series of compact wall chargers offer dual port USB-C functionality and GaNFast technology for quick charging to power multiple devices in one compact product.

The Aukey Omnia Series 65W Dual-Port PD Wall Charger includes a PD USB-C port and a USB-A port, while the 65W PD Dual USB-C Wall Charger has dual PD USB-C ports to charge two devices simultaneously.

Both the Aukey Omnia 65W Dual-Port PD Wall Charger and the 65W PD Dual USB-C Wall Charger feature a 65W PD port to charge a 13-inch MacBook Pro at max speed or charge to an iPhone 11 from 0 to 55 percent in 30 minutes. With the 65W Dual-Port PD Wall Charger’s USB-C port, we charged our iPhone 11 from 39 percent to 90 percent in one hour. Note, a full charge using the standard 5W adapter takes three hours.

Each Aukey Omnia Series charger is a great alternative to the standard Nintendo Switch AC Adapter, which can be large and bulky for travel. Using the 65W PD Dual USB-C Wall Charger, our test held a charge rate equivalent to the standard adapter at about three hours for a full charge. While the charge time isn’t quicker, the Aukey Omnia Series wall charger can charge the Nintendo Switch and another device simultaneously, allowing travelers to leave the Nintendo Switch AC Adapter at home.

In addition to dual-port functionality, the Aukey Omnia Series 65W Dual-Port chargers have a great build quality. The matte black finish combined with the solid snap for the retractable prongs deliver a robust feel. Each charger, at 2x2x1 inches, is not only 50 percent smaller than the 61W Apple USB-C charger, but about 25 percent cheaper.

The Aukey Omnia Series 65W Dual-Port PD Wall Charger sells at $49.99 and the 65W PD Dual USB-C Wall Charger sells at $54.99.
