Pros

  • Slim form factor
  • Uses a 18W USB-C Power Delivery port and three USB-A ports

Cons

  • Does not use a foldable plug

Wall chargers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, especially with GaN tech that makes even the most powerful PD chargers extremely small. However, if you’re not in the market for a laptop Power Delivery charger and want something on the simpler side, you may want to consider this Nekmit 42W USB-C wall charger.

This Nekmit charger has a very different form factor compared to other chargers, with this having a notable slim form factor, and the charging ports are at the bottom of the charger facing downward. Nekmit is quite a popular brand on Amazon, so let’s stake a closer look to see what makes their products popular among consumers.

Output Charging:

One of the main points about this Nekmti 42W wall charger is that it’s a standard charger and is not meant to charge USB-C laptops. This wall charger does not supply enough Power Delivery charging power to charge laptops, and the best use of it is to charge smartphones and tablets.

With that said, it does a great job at charging tablets and laptops, although it does have its limits with its charging power. There is one 18W USB-C Power Delivery port and three USB-A ports that share a 24W power output. So the only fast charging port on this wall charger is the USB-C Power Delivery port; with an 18W charge rate, you’re able to fast charge Android smartphones and iPhones; remember, though, to fast charge iPhones, you do need to use a Lightning to USB-C cable.

In our tests, we could fast charge a Samsung Galaxy S10 via the PD port and charge another three smartphones with the three USB-A ports. We were also able to charge a Microsoft Surface Go tablet that charges via USB-C PD, but it is mainly slow charging at 18W as it’s not its max charging speed. None of the USB-A ports feature Quick Charge.

It would have been a better charging power design to use two USB-C ports and two USB-A ports. Of course, if you still mainly find USB-A ports to be more useful, then this Nekmit charger is exactly what you’re looking for.

Design

Size and Weight:

The size of this Nekmit charger is small, with its length of 2.7 inches, a width of 2.5 inches, and a thickness of 0.8 inches. The charger is easy to take anywhere, and it’s lightweight.

When you plug the charger into an outlet, the flat form factor and the location of the ports being at the bottom of the charger make it less likely to block surrounding outlets.

Functional Components:

One setback for this charger is that it doesn’t have a foldable plug, and because of that, you always have plugs stick out. Of course, it isn’t a problem if you’re using the charger, but having a foldable plug for such a slim charger would be a much better design; that way, you could more easily place the charger into your pocket you wanted to.

It’s something that we think Nekmit should consider doing to this charger as having non-foldable plugs in 2021 is kind of outdated.

On the flip side, the ports on this charger being at the bottom and facing downward are a good design if you save space and ensure that you don’t block surrounding outlets. However, we will say that it can be a little difficult to plug in cables because you can’t clearly see the ports when the charger is plugged in.

At the front of the charger is where there’s an LED power light.

Build

Structure and Material:

Even though we did have a bit of a problem with the non-foldable plugs, we will say that this charger has an incredible build and feels solid to use.

Tech:

Since the charger only has a max power output of 42W, it doesn’t get hot and may only get warm if you’re charging four devices simultaneously.

Reliability

This Nekmit charger is mainly for charging tablets and smartphones. The Power Delivery USB-C charging is not powerful enough for laptops.

Summary:

Power:

Charging power is good for smartphones and tablets as the charger has an 18W USB-C PD port and three USB-A ports that share a 24W power output.

Design:

The charger has a slim form factor that makes it less likely to cover other outlets. It does not have a foldable plug, and using the ports may be a little difficult when the charger is plugged in because you can’t see them if they’re facing down.

Build:

The charger has a great build, and we think that the lack of a foldable plug gives it that solid build quality.

Reliability:

This Nekmit charger is most reliable for charging smartphones and tablets. It’s not able to charge laptops as an 18W charging speed is not enough charging power.
