Stuffcool Neutron review: India's smallest 20W PD charger gets a lot right

If you're looking for the best GaN charger in the U.S., there are plenty of choices, but you can't find them in India. Stuffcool and AMX are two brands that are leading the charge in this area. The brands cater to Indian users and tailor their products for the local market.

I use Stuffcool products daily, including the 65W Napoleon GaN charger and the 100W four-port Centurion, which combine good build quality with fast charging. Stuffcool's newest offering is the Neutron, a small, portable, and 20 watt, two port,usb-pda charge.

The Neutron stands out because of its size. The small size of the charger makes it easier to use on the road. There are two ports, one of which is ideal for charging older phones, and the other is a standard port that can max out at 18W.

The power profiles of the ports are shown here.

9V/2.2A, 12V/1.67A, 5V/3A are the current values of theusb-c.
9V/2A, 12V/ 1.5A, 5V/3A are the types ofusb-a.

If you're using both ports at the same time, it will deliver 15W spread out over both ports. If you're charging two devices overnight, you can use the ports individually, but if you're in a hurry, you need to use the ports together.

I used the Neutron for a few weeks and like the charge. The small profile means it slots into my surge protectors without any issues, and I got 20W over the port consistently. The Neutron has six layers of protection against surge and overcharge, and it also has an auto-detect IC that adjusts the charge based on the device that's plugged in. If you're using the Neutron to charge accessories, it scales the power accordingly.

Stuffcool is marketing the Neutron as the ideal option for the iPhone 13 series, and it does a good job at charging the phone up to 50% in just over 30 minutes. You can use it with the best phones if you use it over the USBPD. If you're using the Redmi Note 10, the Neutron is a great option because it's a standard feature on all of the phones.

The price of 1,499 is an absolute steal. The tiny size makes it ideal for travel, as it has two ports and 20W fast charging. There is a 33W variant of the Neutron that is available for 2,299. If you want the latest charging tech, you'll have to pay a little more for the 33W option, which is a GaN charger. The 20W Neutron is just as good.

India's smallest charging point is a powerhouse.

The Neutron has two charging ports, overcharging protection, and a fast charge of 20W. When you consider what it costs, this is a real bargain.
