Over the last few years, mobile devices have become increasingly more powerful, and that goes especially for laptops. In fact, several laptop brands now support 100W charging, and some even higher values than that. However, many laptop manufacturers still sell their laptops together with lower-end power adapters averaging between 60W to 85W, which are less powerful than their laptop’s power (i.e. wattage) requirements. Because of that, the battery from those laptops will unfortunately charge at a slower rate than when using a more powerful power adapter. This is exactly when having having a 100W USB-C power adapter comes in handy, as it will allow you to charge a laptop that supports 100W charging significantly faster than when using its weaker power adapter that’s shipped with it. So, if you’re looking for a 100W power adapter for a laptop that supports 100W charging, then the Monoprice 100W Universal USB-C Laptop Charger is a great choice to go with.
The Monoprice 100W Universal USB-C Laptop Charger is a compact and powerful wall charger which boasts 100 Watts of output power through a 2.6 ft.

Moreover, this 100W wall charger also integrates multiple safety functionalities including both over-current and overheating protection.
With it, you can recharge most modern laptops, tablets, smartphones, or any other USB-C devices that feature support to 100W charging in a significantly shorter amount of time than you’d be able to by using their stock charger, which typically boast a lower output power.
Now, let’s have a slightly more detailed look at this 100W USB-C PD wall charger and check out everything that it has to offer you.
