Smallest 65W Laptop Charger Includes 2.1A USB Port

September 12, 2016 by Jeff Shepard

FINsix Corporation announced the launch of Dart, the world's smallest, lightest laptop charger. Dart is up to four times smaller and lighter than the charger that shipped with your laptop. At a powerful 65W and with a 2.1A auxiliary USB port, Dart can charge a laptop plus USB device, such as a smartphone or tablet, simultaneously. This means that on-the-go consumers and business travelers are able to ditch their bulky bricks and USB chargers, providing an unprecedented level of portability.

“The reality is that all modern electronics still come with a clunky ac-dc power converter that is really inconvenient to carry. Dart eliminates the bulk, making it easy to throw in a pocket and have on hand when you need it most,” says Vanessa Green, FINsix CEO. “With Dart, we aim to lighten your load and provide a sleek, universal charging accessory that fits perfectly into your mobile lifestyle.”

“Our architectures and designs using high frequency allow us to achieve 10X better power densities, increased speed of conversion by up to 1,000x, and the ability to decrease the size or eliminate large power components. The FINsix ac-dc Power Platform is designed to be scalable for applications from 20W to 1kW. It is our goal to embed FINsix® converters across a range of applications to enable a new class of smaller, lighter, and higher performance power electronics,” Green concluded.

Compatible with all popular PC laptop brands, Dart’s radical reduction in size is enabled by patented high-frequency power conversion technology first developed at MIT. The launch of Dart follows FINsix’s announcement in January 2016 of a partnership with Lenovo for the 65W Micro Adapter, the smallest charging option for ThinkPad laptops.

Dart is available now at for $99, and through FINsix’s retail launch partners, including Staples, Brookstone, Fry’s, Micro Center, Electronic Express, and B&H. It comes in five colors: blue, magenta, silver, gunmetal, and orange.
