Ugreen 200W Desktop Charger is the latest charger from Ugreen that can deliver up to 200W of power. This is the first 200W charger from Ugreen.
It has six ports, 4 USB-C ports, and 2 USB-A ports.
Since it is new and there are not many 200W chargers in the market readily available, the price is on the steep side. Ugreen 200W Desktop Charger retails for S$279.99 on Lazada with free shipping to Singapore. I am sure you get it cheaper during double-digit sales days.
The Ugreen 200W Desktop Charger is the successor to the Ugreen 100W Desktop Charger which was released last year.
When you see a Ugreen product packaged with a black box and gold printing, it is a premium product.
Because the price is high, Ugreen threw in a free USB-C cable. They did not do that for their 100W Desktop Charger.
Mine is the UK set; hence, it comes with a UK plug, and the cord length is 2m.
This is a braided 1m 100W/5A USB-C to USB-C cable that is selling on Lazada for S$7.99.
The product is well-built, and the design feels premium.
The power allocation depends on how many devices you are charging.
- USB-C1/C2: 5V/3A, 9V/3A, 12V/3A, 15V/3A, 20V/5A, 100W Max; PPS: 3.3-21V/3A
- USB-C3/C4: 5V/3A, 9V/3A, 12V/3A, 15V/3A, 20V/3.25A, 65W Max; PPS：3.3-21V/3A
- USB-A1/A2: 4.5V/5A, 5V/4.5A, 5V/3A, 9V/2A, 12V/1.5A, 22.5W Max
- USB-C: PD3.0/ PPS/ QC4+ (QC4.0/QC3.0)/ FCP/ AFC/ 5V2.4A/ BC1.2
- USB-A: SCP/ QC3.0/ FCP/ AFC/ 5V2.4A/ BC1.2
C1 and C2 max out at 100W each, C3 and C4 max out at 65W each, while A1 and A2 max out at 22.5W each.
When all the six ports are being used, their allocation will be 65W (C1), 45W (C2), 45W (C3), 20W (C4), and 20W (shared between A1 and A2).
It uses the IEC 60320 C5 connector instead of the usual C7 connector.
The Ugreen 200W Desktop Charger is slightly bigger than the Ugreen 100W Desktop Charger.
The Ugreen 200W Desktop Charger has 4x USB-C and 2x USB-A ports, while the Ugreen 100W Desktop Charger has 3x USB-C and 1x USB-A ports.
Using the same charger, you can charge two MacBook Pro 16″ at 100W each. Regarding heat dissipation, it is hot, but I can’t tell whether it is hotter than the 100W charger. Both are equally hot to me.
I am not sure anyone will fork out S$280 for a charger just so that he or she can charge two laptops using one plug, and hence I feel that the Ugreen 200W Desktop Charger is still too expensive for the general consumer.
If you are an early adopter like me, I would recommend it. But get it during double-digit sale day as it will drop to S$230. For the rest, it is still cheaper to get two 100W chargers instead of one 200W charger.
As a rule of thumb, 1W should be less than S$1, so a 100W charger should be less than S$100. A good price point for this will be anywhere less than S$200 since the most expensive charger is a 140W single USB-C port from Apple and that cost S$119.
