'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Ugreen's Nexode 100W GaN Charger specs

  • Total output: 100W
  • Max output per port: 100W
  • Charging ports: 2 USB-C + 1 USB-A
  • Charging pad: MagSafe and Qi compatible 
  • Dimensions: 92 x 60 x 60 mm

The Nexode 100W charging station features three USB ports -- two USB-C and one USB-A -- that share between them 100W of output power. This means owners can charge a wide range of devices, from the latest MacBook Pro to an Apple Watch, AirPods, an iPad, or anything that has a USB port.

And this device is no slouch, as it's capable of charging the new Apple M2 MacBook Pro from zero to 50% in just 30 minutes.

The magnetic charging plate -- which is good with any iPhone, from the iPhone 12 to the very latest iPhone 15, or an Android device that has wireless charging -- can be angled up to 65°, so users can choose the perfect viewing angle for the smartphone. And thanks to strong magnets, the iPhone can rotate 360° to conveniently access videos and conferences while charging, all without it slipping off.
