Review: Satechi's 75W charger has USB-C PD, Quick Charge, and extra ports to keep all your gadgets going

When you travel, you get a good idea of the stuff it takes to keep your lifestyle going. It's one thing to be surrounded by all the things you need at home, but it's another to selectively pack them into a limited space with the expectation of maintaining the same standards. For me, the limiting factor has always been power: charging all my stuff means toting a pile of cables and bricks around. In fact, that's one of the biggest advantages of the growing ubiquity of USB-C and the PD spec.

So when I saw Satechi's 75W Travel Charger, with one USB-C PD and three USB-A ports, I knew I was interested, and it didn't disappoint.

[Update: Fix in coming weeks] Android 8.1 update for 2016 Pixel XL causes a potentially dangerous overcurrent charging bug

Generally speaking, updates remove bugs, but in the case of Google's 2016 Pixel XL, a new problem was introduced with the Android 8.1 update this January. When charging in certain circumstances, the OG Pixel XL will (dangerously) attempt to pull up to 40% more current than it has negotiated from the charger, repeatedly entering and leaving a charging state as the charger shuts off due to overcurrent protection. So if you've noticed your Pixel XL recently flashing "charging rapidly" multiple times after being plugged into the stock charger, that's why.

[Deal Alert] Anker PowerCore Speed 20000 with USB-C PD is $79.99 ($20 off) on Amazon

If there's one thing that annoys me about modern smartphones, it's their abysmal battery life. Remember those old Nokia bricks that had batteries that lasted for days on end? Now you're lucky if your phone's battery lasts past dinnertime with anything more than moderate usage. Fortunately, there are ways to get around these modern inconveniences, and a 20100mAh portable charger with USB-C Power Delivery is certainly one of them.

Anker is one of a few companies that makes reliable portable chargers (fair disclaimer: I own an Anker PowerCore and really like mine), and right now, their PowerCore Speed 20000 PD model has dropped its price to $79.99 ($20 off) on Amazon, no coupon required.
