The Zeus Charger has a maximum output of 140W, which means it’s powerful enough to charge a 16in Macbook Pro at full speed while also charging three other devices. It’s also a GaN smart charger, which means that depending on the device and how many devices you have connected, the Zeus charger will charge those devices at peak efficiency while keeping your battery health in mind. Another thing to consider is the size and weight of the charger.
