NOTE: As a relatively new user, I am not allowed to post URLs

I recently bought a 13" MacBook pro, and go the following Baseus USB-C hub:
SEARCH ON LAZADA: Baseus Mirror Type-C HUB Adapter Convertor (Type-C to 3 x USB3.0 + HDMI + PD + RJ45)

It's been working wonderfully and I have been happy with it. Delivery was relatively quick as the seller (GMX) is based in Singapore.

I have also been toying with the idea of buying the following magnetic charging cable:
SEARCH ON LAZADA: Baseus 86W Magnetic USB Type C Cable For Macbook Elbow Charge Cable for Samsung Galaxy S8 S9 PD 3.0 Quick Charge USB C Cable

What I really need though is a (second) USB-C wall charger for the MacBook Pro. The one that looks best to me in my search so far is the "Mazer EnerG Travel 360 65W PD3.0+QC3.0+USB-AX2 Fast Charger".

Unfortunately, I can't tell difference between that product and the "Mazer EnerG.BOOST 65W TRAVEL USB-C PD+QC3.0 Wall Charger"

If any of you have an answer, or if you can recommend another wall charger, do share. Thanks!

One comes with 1 USB-A port the other comes with 2x USB-A ports. That’s about it.

But I’ll still recommend Anker or Xiaomi 65W USB-C PD charger.

I won’t say the maz energ travel is attractive at that price point ($99) unless you really need the travel adapters.

U can easily get ugreen 65w UK charger for less than half the price of maz energy.

Yes Anker has a lot of new charger that adopts the GaN technology but most are using US 2 pin plug.

The highest wattage available in a UK plug is just 30W for now.

Sadly I do. And in particular, I need a plug for Australia. I could, of course, just use a standard travel adapter, but it would be nice to have a 'streamlined' charger if I could.

Thanks for pointing me to Xiaomi's and Anker's chargers. A search on Lazada and Shopee for both turned up only units with US-plugs. If I had to have a unit with just one plug, then I would prefer Australian first, and UK/Singapore second - I should have mentioned it earlier. So, I'm afraid I will have to give this one a pass.

You find the hub troublesome?

I can see how it could be cumbersome.

I also bought four USB-A to USB-C converters (search "Baseus USB Type C OTG Adapter Male to USB Female Type-c OTG Converter" on Lazada/Shopee) to use with existing USB-A devices when I need to connect only one device. They work with my existing portable external HDDs and with the iPhone/iPad, although I am not technically-savvy enough to be able to comment on the speed of data transfers from/to portable HDDs.

If I am not wrong the 65w is shared between the ports or the USB C port may only support up to a certain wattage, meaning it will not be charging at the full speed of 65w.

I also suggest getting those single USB C adaptor because if the price. For example the price of a xiaomi 65w is selling for less than $40 in shopee:
https://shopee.sg/Original-Xiaomi-65...280.1460711304

If you need to travel, just get those travel adapter which after adding the price of the xiaomi adaptor will still cost you lesser than the price of Mazer EnerG Travel.

If need to charge other mobile devices, I suggest to a separate adapter with 4 or 5 usb ports.

Using the 85 watt MAC charger for 13 inches should be fine too right? I got one that time when a guy clearing all his MAC charger for 50 bucks.
