Are in the market for a new charging station that simultaneously charges multiple devices, from smartphones to laptops and even your Nintendo Switch (or Steam Deck)? If that's the case, Amazon is currently running a fantastic deal on Ugreen's Nexode 200W desktop charger. Usually $200, this device is down to its lowest price yet, $170 ($30 off).
Using GaN II technology, the Ugreen Nexode is ideal for those looking to minimize clutter on their desk yet still charge multiple devices concurrently. It is a great travel device if you bring three or more devices. The Ugreen Nexode features six USB ports: four are USB-C and two are USB-A with a maximum power output of 200W.
I own a Ugreen Nexode and was able to charge my iPhone 13 Pro, Google Pixel 6, Sony ZV-1, Nintendo Switch, iPad Air, and my AirPods Pro in roughly two and a half hours. And with an HDMI hub, you can use this device as a docking station for your Nintendo Switch or Steam Deck.
The only drawback worth noting is that the device's power distribution varies greatly depending on your device. Green does have a chart that helps provide a layout when using three devices or more. Clear labeling on the device or in the materials that come with the packaging would have been nice, especially if you are charging a 100W device on one port and want to see how much charge another device or two could draw. Yet, if you are looking for something that can fast charge smaller devices like smartphones, AirPods, and/or a Switch, this might be worth picking up.
