Innergie PowerGear USB-C 45W Laptop Adapter- A Travel Friendly AC Power Adapter Supporting USB Power Delivery

The Delta Group is one of the largest providers of power supplies in the world found inside many electronics products around the world, and through their Innergie brand, now also sells power supplies directly to consumers.  One of the hottest trends emerging in power supplies today is USB Power Delivery which allows millions of notebooks, tablets, and smartphones to be charged using the same USB Type-C power supply.  To support this trend, Innergie has released their PowerGear USB-C 45 which is an AC power adapter that you can use as a replacement power supply or something small enough that you can take with you on the road to use as a travel power adapter.

After purchasing the Innergie PowerGear USB-C 45 through Amazon Prime, it arrived within a couple days.

The Innergie PowerGear USB-C 45 packaging shows that it supports the various power profiles- 45 watts (20 volts @ 2.25 amps or 15 volts @ 3 amps), 36 watts (12 volts @ 3 amps), or 15 watts (5 volts @ 3 amps).  As a comparison, the Google Universal Type-C Charger 60W which was the first USB Power Delivery based AC power adapter launched in the market, supports 60 watts (20 volts @ 3 amps), 36 watts (12 volts @ 3 amps), and 15 watts (5V @ 3 amps).  Despite supporting only 45 watts of charging, this still is still enough to works with many USB Type-C notebooks in the market today, and more than enough to work with tablets and phones.

The Innergie PowerGear USB-C 45 also comes with a carry pouch to make it easier to carry it around in your bag.

The Innergie PowerGear USB-C 45 is definitely one of the lightest power supplies out there and is more travel friendly compared to the other AC power supplies that come with your notebook.  It's also a lot more more stylish than the traditional black AC power brick.

The Innergie PowerGear USB-C 45 should be able to work with a lot of the notebooks, tablets, and smartphones out there that support charging from USB Power Delivery sources. Note that some notebooks like the HP Spectre Laptop (13.3") do not support third party USB Power Delivery adapters and won't work with the Innergie PowerGear USB-C 45.

Using the USB Power Delivery Compliance C2 Tester from Granite River Labs to run just a subset of the full USB Power Delivery compliance test suite, we can verify that the Innergie PowerGear USB-C 45 does support the following fixed PDO's for charging as claimed: 15 watts (5 volts @ 3 amps), 36 watts (12 volts @ 3 amps) and 45 watts (20 volts @ 2.25 amps or 15 volts @ 3 amps). Note some compliance failures were observed.
