Pros

  • 60W Power Delivery when charging a single device or 45W of Power Delivery when charging two devices
  • Small and slim design with a foldable plug

Cons

  • Ports can be difficult to access when the charger is plugged in

We did a review for another one of Nekmit’s chargers, and that would be for their 4 port wall charger that featured a single USB-C Power Delivery port and three USB-A ports. It’s a useful charger. However, the wall charger was lacking the power to charge laptops. That said, different chargers fulfill different needs, and that’s why Nekmit has this 60W Power Delivery wall charger that is definitely more useful for charging USB-C laptops such as Macbooks.

Let’s take a look to see if this Nekmit 60W Slim PD charger should be your go-to charger for all your charging needs.

Power

Output Charging:

This Nekmit charger features dynamic charging, and that means depending on if you’re charging one or two devices, the charging speed that you receive will be different for the USB-C Power Delivery only. Also, just a quick note, the charger has a USB-A port and a USB-C PD port.

If you’re only charging a single device with the USB-C Power Delivery port, then the output is 60W. Charging two devices simultaneously will result in the Power Delivery port lowering its charging speed to 45W, and the USB-A port has a standard 12W speed. The USB-A port does not feature Quick Charge.

This charging design is pretty good for most USB-C laptops as most laptops require that you use at least a 30W charger, so even if you’re charging two devices, a 45W Power Delivery speed is perfect for most laptops. In our tests, we charged Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 laptop; we charged the laptop alone via the USB-C port, and the laptop was able to charge at 35W, which is the max speed for the laptop. Then we charged a Galaxy Note 9 and the Lenovo laptop, which could still charge at about 30W.

So you’re not losing too much charging power when charging two devices simultaneously. However, you do have the choice of charging a single device and getting more power. You may also use the USB-C port to fast charge most smartphones, including fast charging iPhones with a USB-C to Lightning cable.

Design

Size and Weight:

The form factor of this Nekmit charger is a bit different than other wall chargers because it has a more slim and flat type of design. This is mainly due to the ports being at the bottom of the charger. The charger has a length of 3.2 inches, a width of 2.3 inches, and a thickness of 0.9 inches. It weighs 4 ounces. The charger does use a foldable plug which makes portability a lot easier and is a notable improvement over Nekmit’s 4 port wall charger that doesn’t have a foldable plug.

Functional Components:

 

Like all of Nekmit’s chargers, this 60W one also has the same port design at the bottom of the charger. This design choice allows this Nekmit charger to have its slim size, but at the same time, we can’t help but think that having ports at the front is a better design choice because you can actually see them.

At the front of the charger, there is a Green LED power light that lets you know that the charger is ready to use once plugged in.

Build

Structure and Material:

The charger is made of plastic, as most wall chargers are. It has a great build that matches larger brands, so we didn’t find any flaws on this part.

Tech:

The charger does get a little warm if you’re charging a laptop with the USB-C Power Delivery port, but that’s be expected as heat is always generated during charging, no matter what charger you’re using. In this case, it’s not excessive heat and is completely normal.

Reliability

This Nekmit charger is reliable for universal charging if you’re able to use the USB-C port to charge your laptop and smartphone as most phones are compatible to charge with a USB-C port. The use of dynamic charging is also welcome as you get 60W from charging a single device or 45W of Power Delivery from charging two devices. That lower power output is still enough to charge most USB-C laptops at a fast charging speed.

It is unreliable to plug in cables while the wall charger is plugged into an outlet because you can’t clearly see the ports. After all, they’re at the bottom of the charger.

Summary:

Power:

Charging power is dynamic with a 60W output from the USB-C Power Delivery port when charging a single device or 45W when charging two devices. The USB-A port does not use Quick Charge.

Design:

The charger is small, slim, has a foldable plug, and has a LED power light. The main flaw is that the ports are at the bottom, making it difficult to plug the cable in unless you take the charger out of the outlet.

Build:

The build quality of this charger is great, and we didn’t find any major flaws. The only part of the charger you’d have to worry about breaking is the foldable plug, but even that is built well, too.

Reliability:

The charger is reliable for charging most USB-C laptops and can fast charge most smartphones; this is true for Android smartphones and iPhones, but you must use a Lightning to USB-C cable to fast charge iPhones.

Conclusion:

The Nekmit Slim 60W Power Delivery wall charger is a powerful and simple charger perfect for charging USB-C laptops and can fast charge most phones. We really wish the ports were front and center and not at the bottom. However, most users do like this type of design, and very few complaints about it, so it may just be us having a problem with it.
