Gaming laptops typically employ heavy and chunky power bricks on account of their massive power draw while also requiring the use of specific, often proprietary, charging tips.
Naturally, hauling a gaming laptop and its charging brick around is typically a recipe that involves an eventual trip to a chiropractor somewhere down the line but Innergie has an alternative that not only acts as a back-up charging brick and cable for your gaming laptop but is also lighter in the bargain too.
We got our hands on Innergie’s T24 240W charger designed for gaming laptops and put it to the test. Here’s our Innergie T24 240W gaming laptop power adaptor review where we share if this interesting accessory is worth your money!
Innergie T24 240W gaming laptop power adaptor review – Build and design
Table of Contents
For the uninitiated, Innergie is a consumer brand that specialises in laptops chargers that has a surprising provenance having been established in 2009 as a Delta Electronics sub-brand. Since then, they’ve carved out a successful niche as a third party laptop charger provider catering to laptops of all sizes and makes from energy efficient ultrabooks to juice guzzling behemoth gaming laptops.
Our Innergie T24 240W gaming laptop power adaptor review unit is intended to cater to the demanding power needs of gaming laptops and has the notable ability to provide up to a 240W power output (20W – 12A) that can meet the charging needs of all but the most demanding gaming and workstation laptops. If you own something that has a larger power draw, you can acquire the top of the line Innergie T28 that has a ridiculous 280W power output.
Where the Innergie T24 stands out is that it has a series of swappable charging tips, allowing it to be used with multiple brands from all but the most obscure gaming laptop manufacturers.
Out of the box, our Innergie T24 240W gaming laptop power adaptor review sample hosted the charging brick itself which is relatively light as charging bricks go at 527g along with a 2.2m cable that offers some logistical flexibility on where you deploy it.
The packaging also ships with five swappable charging tips that are intended compatible with Acer, Alienware, Asus, Dell HP, Lenovo, MSI and ROG laptops.
Should none of the five provided tips fit, Innergie also has a complimentary tip programme where you can register your laptop model with their website and have them send over a compatible charging tip from their additional optional selection on the house for the duration of the warranty.
Of note here is that Innergie is espousing their green credentials and states that their chargers are made with 100% renewable electricity with a 100% waste diversion rate with the elimination of all plastic windows and linings in their packaging along with the use of traceable paper to make their packaging more eco-friendly.
To that end, the packaging on our T24 240W gaming laptop power adaptor review sample is the epitome of sustainability as it’s an eco-friendly cardboard box with an image of the T24 on the cover with a minimum of frippery.
In terms of design, our Innergie T24 240W gaming laptop power adaptor review unit is rather unassuming with everything done up in matte black plastic with a detachable charging cable for the brick itself terminating in a standard UK-style 3-pin charging plug for use with local Malaysian charging outlets and the other end sporting a non-detachable cable that terminates in a port that allows you to swap out any of the five charging tips at will.
Overall build quality is sturdy with the cables shrouded in thick plastic and the charging tips being made of thick plastic that can stand up to repeated heavy use.
Innergie also espouses that their charger has 50% lower standby power consumption and has been tested extensively for safety with the built-in cable surviving over 10,000 180-degree bending tests while also having a 3-year worldwide warranty for peace of mind.
Innergie T24 240W gaming laptop power adaptor review – Performance
In terms of mission profile, the Innergie T24 240W gaming laptop power adaptor is intended as a lighter, more portable and versatile alternative to a user’s existing charging brick.
In the statistically unlikely event that you own multiple gaming laptops, you can simply swap the DC-IN charging tip out to whichever gaming laptop you’re using at the moment. Weighing in at about 570g in total, the design is relatively man-portable and is a bit lighter than an equivalent charging brick in most laptop designs.
To put it to the test, we swapped out the provided charging brick on an MSI Cyborg 15 A12V laptop that we have in inventory. This particular laptop from MSI has a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processor with a beefy NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 laptop graphics card which means that it draws plenty of power which is why it ships with a 120W charging brick out of the box.
When put through standard usage including a few quick matches of Warzone DMZ as well as web browsing and paperwork, our Innergie T24 240W gaming laptop power adaptor review sample functioned identically to the original charger without any significant loss in performance.
Even after several hours of usage, it did not suffer any major heating issues with the charging brick feeling slightly warm to the touch which is well within its performance parameters.
Charging the laptop from dead zero on the original charger typically requires just under 2 hours and the Innergie T24 240W enjoyed similar charging times, making it an effective, lighter replacement charging brick.
Should you buy the Innergie T24 240W gaming laptop power adaptor?
