I got one of these when they came out. Really happy with it. It can usually keep up with my 15" MBP and its slim profile works well in a lot of behind-the-couch spaces. At $30 it's competitive with all the other GAN chargers out there.

Was $25 last week, and a couple of weeks ago it was $27 with a free USB-to-Lightning cable. $30 isn't noteworthy anymore.

(I have four of them. Yes, they're worth buying in general, but this is their everyday price now.)

It's so sad to think that a single glorified usb delivery AC adapter is a slickdeal at $30. I realize that it is quick charge, but $30 for a single port charger.... Think about it.

It's not about being quick; it's that it's small enough to carry just about anywhere your laptop goes. This is absolutely tiny compared to any OEM notebook charger and does the job just as well for all but the most demanding workstations.

So basically the diminutive size is the reason that this commands a higher price? I guess if you are a traveler maybe.

Or if you carry a laptop bag as part of your daily commute...?

you simply don't know what you are talking about, high power, small size, high power density and GaN is EXPENSIVE to design and EXPENSIVE to make.

If you know anything about power supply design (which I don't expect you to) you would know the BOM (component) cost is very high for this product. It's a great price for what it is, previous deals not withstanding.

Your expectations are incorrect...I have an electrical degree and understand your point about design, however my point is that most people who are looking for a charger for their Macs or Switch that demand this power, really don't care about a slightly larger transformer design if the price is part of the equation. I cannot believe most people would prefer the higher cost for just a size difference.
