The present and future of K-12 education involves greater integration of mobile devices and electronic learning tools. Tablets and lightweight laptops can enhance the learning experience of a student through hands-on projects and assignments. In addition, e-learning and virtual classes can help students who are absent due to illness or extracurricular activities catch up on what they're missing.
Unfortunately, many tablet and laptops come with heavy, clunky chargers that are hard to carry and expensive to replace if lost or broken. At ZMI, we want to provide educators and school administrators with a simple solution: a lightweight, affordable charger for all their devices.
The ZMI zPower Turbo is a 65W USB-C PD charger that is capable of charging a wide of variety of devices, including laptops, iPads, Bluetooth headphones, and DSLR cameras. If your school is looking for a replacement charger that can be purchased in bulk but doesn't break the bank, the zPower Turbo may be just the product you need.
As seen in the photos below, the zPower Turbo is one of the smallest chargers on the market that is capable of charging laptops. What's not visible is the weight. This charger only weighs 3.37 oz or 95 grams, which is about the same as a deck of cards. In comparison, Apple's 61W chargers weighs around 9.04 oz or 256 grams. Anker's 65W GaN charger is also one of the smallest chargers on the market, and it weighs 3.96 oz or 112 grams.

- 13" MacBook Pro 2016 or newer
