Tiny laptop charger packs a lot of power – Chicago Tribune
Full-featured laptops keep getting slimmer and lighter, but their chargers typically remain space hogs.
Finsix offers the diminutive Dart Laptop Charger, which is compatible with most PC laptops and notebooks thanks to nine included interchangeable power port tips. Those connect to the Dart’s detachable 6-foot cable, but the charger itself is a mere 2.75 inches long by 1.1 inches wide and 1 inch thick.
The developers managed to shrink the innards of the typical laptop power brick while retaining the standard 65-watt output power. The charger has a two-prong plug, and the 100-240V AC input means you won’t need a voltage converter abroad (just the right-shaped plug adapter).
Be sure to check the company’s website compatibility guide to make sure your model isn’t among the 5 percent that won’t work with a Dart.
The Finsix Dart Laptop Charger in blue, magenta, gunmetal, orange or silver costs $99.99.
The Dart-C, which works with Apple MacBooks and other devices, became available in March.
