Ultra-slim 45W USB-C charger

I scored a free 45W USB-C charger ( https://www.ravpower.com/products/rp-pc104-45w-pd-wall-charger ) at CES this year, and to my surprise and delight it works fine with my ThinkPad 25. (The ThinkPad 25 is basically a T470).

It charges a little more slowly than the 65W charger that came with my machine, but it totally works! I find it amazing that a little sliver that's only 19/32″ thick can charge my laptop without issue. This has become my standard travel charger now, along with a 6' USB-C to USB-C braided cable I bought on eBay: ( https://www.ebay.com/itm/USLION-Braided-USB-C-to-USB-C-Cable-60W-PD-3A-Fast-Charging-For-Samsung-Macbook/193218133760 )

If your laptop can be charged by 45W USB-C, this ensemble will do the job for <$30 and can slip in your pocket.

There has been extensive discussion of this unit and others over in the Travel Technology forum:
Outfitting your travel kit for USB-C


The Ravpower 45 Watt unit is excellent (I've got one) and is a good example of a new generation of GAN chargers which are all significantly smaller than the old school boat anchors we used to lug around. I've used the Ravpower unit to power my 15 inch Macbook pro, and and my phone... allowing me to travel with a single charger.

I have a MuOne (sold out now while they move to making an enhanced MuTwo version), which is elegantly designed with swappable plugs - and the UK plug folds up small and flat. I like it a lot.

Thanks for the link to that other thread - I missed it!

I actually backed the MuTwo on Kickstarter some time ago because I liked its design for a slimline UK plug. I look forward to getting it eventually, but in the meantime have been quite happy with this RavPower charger.
