Digital Camera World Verdict

The Ugreen Nexode 100W GaN with 15W MagSafe makes for one beautifully organized desktop. Firstly the charger itself just looks great on its own, but pop an iPhone in landscape on the MagSafe charger and you've got yourself one very pretty desktop clock. Not only that with 100 watts output, there is more than enough power to charge most MacBooks or other laptops through one port or keep a number of other peripherals topped up. However, I do feel that it is a missed opportunity for a second wireless charger to go under the top for Airpods or an Apple Watch.
