Remember when every new phone came with its dedicated wall charger? Those seem like distant memories now. In an effort to reduce their environmental impact, phone manufacturers are increasingly skipping wall chargers in smartphone packaging. This shift aims to lessen e-waste, but let’s be honest: even though many of us have chargers from previous phones, finding a reliable and compatible one to keep our shiny new devices powered up safely and quickly can still be challenging.

Ugreen Nexode RG Series - Unboxing

If you’re looking for a new charger, prioritize fast and safe charging. GaN (Gallium Nitride) chargers stand out from the crowd with their innovative features. It offers a significant upgrade over traditional silicon chargers. GaN chargers utilize a special material that allows for more efficient power handling and operation at higher frequencies. This translates to the benefits you crave: faster charging times in a smaller, lighter package. With the growing number of USB-C compatible devices, GaN USB-C chargers are the perfect choice for a powerful, portable, and efficient charging solution.

Meet the Ugreen Nexode RG 30W and 65W GaN Charger

Ugreen Nexode RG is a cute robot-shaped charger that combines functionality with playfulness, making it the perfect accessory for all your charging needs on the go. Ugreen’s Nexode RG GaN Charger is designed with GaN (Gallium Nitride) technology. Unlike traditional silicon chargers, GaN offers superior thermal conductivity, enabling faster charging in a smaller form factor. This translates to efficient power transfer, reducing the risk of overheating and ensuring a safe charging experience for your devices. These chargers comes in two varieties: a compact 30W version and a more powerful 65W option. Both offer fast charging times and are compatible with a wide range of devices. The 30W option is ideal for on-the-go smartphone charging, while the 65W option tackles a wider range of devices, including some laptops. Both boast cute robot designs and cutting-edge tech, making them a quirky yet capable addition to your charging arsenal.


Inside the box, you’ll find the charger itself and a user guide. However, the Ugreen Nexode RG GaN Charger doesn’t come with any cables. In that case, I would highly recommend a Ugreen USB C to USB C 100W Fast Cable. In fact, I have a few and can’t rate them highly enough.


Today’s phone chargers are all pretty much the same. They’re made of plain plastic with just branding, a plug, and a USB port – nothing to set them apart. While recent years have seen a shift towards see-through designs and power banks with flashy screens, UGREEN takes a whole new approach with its latest chargers. Forget boring bricks! Their adorable Nexode Robot GaN chargers, available in 65W and 30W options, transform into charming robot companions! Especially the cute 30W variant in purple that sports a little bow on its back. But the fun doesn’t stop there – the LED display on the robot’s face changes expressions to reflect the charging state! No more guessing! A quick glance tells you everything. When your device is fully charged, its little mouth turns off, a clear signal to unplug.

But wait, there’s more! These robot chargers are functional, too. At the top is where you’ll find the charging ports, ready to juice up your devices. And on the bottom, you’ll find removable shoes that house the AC plug, making them easy to store and transport. But these shoes do double duty! They also act as adorable little robot feet, allowing the charger to stand upright.

The 30W charger takes functionality a step further. Its magnetic shoes are strong enough to hold the entire charger to a whiteboard, turning it into a playful and accessible charger at your desk. However, it’s important to note that while the magnet can hold the charger, it might not be ideal for all situations. The magnet’s strength may not be sufficient for long-term use, and the shoes themselves don’t have a locking mechanism. For this reason, we wouldn’t recommend mounting the charger to a whiteboard.

Nevertheless, the magnetized shoes on both models help secure the plug covers to a metal surface when the charger is not in use. However, since the plug cover isn’t physically attached to the charger, it’s easy to forget, especially if you’re charging on the go.

While the 65-watt version only comes in a sleek black, the 30-watt RG fast charger comes in black or light purple with a ribbon at the back. So, with these options, you can choose a charger that will fit your personality and desktop design!

Mini-smart screen display

With its innovative mini-smart screen display, the Ugreen Nexode RG Series takes charging to a new level. Ditch the boring status lights of the past! This playful feature brings your charger to life with a range of charming facial expressions. Whether you choose the 65W or 30W Nexode RG, you’ll get an interactive companion that adds a touch of personality and delight to your daily charging routine.

As its name suggests, the Ugreen Nexode Robot GaN 30W charger can deliver up to 30W charging speed, making it a great choice for quickly powering up most smartphones. For users who need even faster charging and the ability to power multiple devices, the Ugreen Nexode Robot GaN 65W charger offers a versatile solution. It features three ports—two USB-C ports and one USB-A. While the USB-C1 port delivers the full 65 watts, the USB-C2 port is limited to 30 watts, and the USB-A port provides up to 22.5 watts. However, it’s important to note that using all three ports on the 65-watt charger won’t simultaneously give you the maximum charging speeds for each device.

Personally, I have always used the primary USB-C port for my laptop and the other two ports for my smartphone and wireless headphones. This setup allows me to charge all my essential devices at once, though depending on your needs, you might prioritize the ports differently.

Their Thermal Guard™ system further enhances safety by constantly monitoring temperature.

The GaNFast™ chips boast up to 95% energy conversion efficiency, resulting in faster charging, less energy loss, and improved device heat management.

Ugreen’s Nexode RG GaN Charger blends functionality with a touch of fun. It’s not just a powerful and portable charger; it’s a conversation starter! Ugreen took a standard GaN charger, shrunk it down, and disguised it as a playful robot with an LED screen acting as its face (well, LED screen in this case). The face even changes expressions based on the charging status! Plus, removable “shoes” hide the prongs for a polished look.

Ugreen offers two options to fit your needs: a compact 30W version, perfect for on-the-go phone charging, and a more powerful 65W option that tackles a wider range of devices with its multi-port design. This 65W version is ideal for users who need to charge laptops, tablets, or multiple devices simultaneously. Ultimately, the choice depends on your needs. Do you prioritize portability and fast phone charging, making the 30W a great choice? Or do you need the ultimate versatility for multi-device charging, making the 65W with additional ports more ideal? Whichever option you choose, the Ugreen Nexode RG series offers a powerful and portable solution with a unique, conversation-starting look. It’s a fast charger with a personality, and it’s definitely worth considering!
