Manufacturers of smartphones and laptops have long ceased to focus on battery capacity. Instead, they decided it was much easier to do fast charging.
And this strategy worked: smartphones did not become too thick, they hold a charge normally and charge quickly.
But if consumers are not able to influence the first two points in any way, then the charging speed directly depends on which power adapter will be used.
There are a huge number of chargers on the market, so choosing the right device is not always easy. Recently, I got two uBear Select and Select Pro to test, which will be discussed in this article.
Looking ahead, I can say that for the price these are excellent chargers for Apple technology and other smartphones.
uBear Select – compact and fast charging for any smartphone
I have been using quick chargers for my iPhone for about five years, and during this time I have had different power supplies.
I remember very well how in 2018 I had to connect the cable to the power adapter from the MacBook Pro, because it met all the technical parameters. Over time, chargers became more compact and reached a truly tiny size.
uBear Select is a great example of this. The device has compact dimensions of 72 x 35.5 x 35.5 mm. This charger is very convenient to take with you, because it does not take up much space in your bag or backpack.
uBear Select has a Smart Power Regulation feature. It recognizes devices, ensuring optimal charging power for each. Also There is protection against overheating and overvoltage. This is very important when it comes to charging expensive smartphones.
uBear Select power is 20W, there is support for Power Delivery protocols and Quick Charge 3.0. Charging is via USB-C.
Thanks to such a variety of characteristics, uBear Select is suitable for fast charging of any smartphones, including iPhones. The presence of two protocols makes uBear Select a universal charger, unlike adapters from Apple, Samsung and other manufacturers.
Separately, I note that uBear Select supports fast charging using MagSafeand not all power supplies can boast of this.
uBear Select Pro – same dimensions but enough power to charge iPhone 14 Pro and MacBook
There is another charger in the uBear range, which I personally liked a little more due to its versatility – Select Pro.
It has the same dimensions as the regular Select: 72 x 35.5 x 35.5 mm. But her power is already 30 W. This result was achieved through the use of gallium nitride (GaN).
Microelectronics manufacturers mainly use silicon. Gallium nitride is more difficult to manufacture, but conducts current at a faster rate and withstands higher voltages.
These properties help to create compact yet powerful chargers.
The rest of the technical uBear Select Pro does not differ from the regular Select, so charging is suitable for any smartphone, and it is also safe.
The main advantage of uBear Select Pro is the increased power. 30W is enough to charge a MacBook. For example, MacBook Airs ship with 30W charging initially, so there will be no speed difference with uBear Select Pro.
In addition, uBear Select Pro is better for charging iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max. Apple says a 20W power bank is enough to quickly charge iPhones, but independent tests show newer models can draw up to 27W.
Which charger to choose and how much they cost
If you only need charging for your smartphone and it’s not the iPhone 14 Pro, then take uBear Select.
But if you have an iPhone 14 Pro, a MacBook, and want a universal charger, or just a device with more power for the future, then the uBear Select Pro is worth considering.
In any case, you can’t go wrong, because uBear Select and Select Pro are better than their counterparts from Apple and other smartphone manufacturers.
