- A few short years ago, having the ability to fast charge a laptop and a smartphone with the same charger was unthinkable — now there’s a charger that will fast charge them both at the same time!
- It’s called the AUKEY Omnia Dual-Port 65W Fast Charger, and it’s one of our favorite new accessories.
- A single charger can pump out up to 5W of power split between your laptop and your phone, and there are two different versions available that are both discounted for Prime members.

When I travel anywhere these days, I feel like I need a separate bag just for all the adapters and cables I need to charge up all my gear. I have a giant brick with a different cord coming out of each end for my MacBook, and I have a separate USB-C adapter and a USB-C to Lightning cable for my iPhone. My Apple Watch obviously needs Apple’s proprietary wireless charging disc and its mile-long cable, and my Kindle eBook reader needs a micro-USB cable and a different wall adapter. Oh, and then I also need a regular USB-C charger and adapter for the portable power bank I carry around with me. Long story short, it’s a huge pain in the butt.
With all that in mind, you can see why I was so excited when Aukey sent me the company’s new AUKEY Omnia Dual-Port 65W Fast Charger ahead of launch. This thing is… awesome! It’s 50% smaller and about 50% lighter than the MacBook’s wall adapter, and it has a total power output of 65W. That means you can connect it to just your laptop and it’ll charge at a full 65W, or you can plug in a second cable and fast-charge your iPhone or iPad at full speed while your laptop charges at 45W.
There are two different versions of the AUKEY Omnia Dual-Port 65W Fast Charger, and they’re both on sale right now on Amazon. The Dual Port USB-C PD and USB-A model retails for $50 but can be had for just $37.59 right now if you’re an Amazon Prime member, and the version with two USB-C PD ports is down to $43.99 instead of $60 for Prime members. I carry the latter with me now so that I can fast-charge my iPhone 11 Pro while I also charge my MacBook, and it’s like a dream come true.
