Has it ever occurred to you that your phone and laptop could use the same power adapter? And that it could be as small as a regular phone charger? Einova did! Let us reintroduce Sirius 65W, a universal charger with Power Delivery protocol for all USB-C devices up to 65W. It only sends your connected device exactly as much power as it requires.
The adaptable design of the Sirius 65W incorporates features that set it apart from other USB-C chargers. First, it’s the only charger with removable dual position prongs. It’s also pocket-sized and compact, designed with the needs of travelers in mind. And finally, subtle details in the body shape and variant colors testify to Einova’s distinctive visual style and brand identity. Ready to be amazed by the design of Sirius 65W?
Removable dual position prongs
Sirius 65W is the only universal USB-C charger equipped with a removable prong head. It can be inserted either horizontally or vertically, as needed.
Let's start with a brief explanation of this unusual design choice. You've probably struggled with those bulky PC power bricks with built-in DC cables — the ones that weigh nearly as much as the laptop they're supposed to charge. Apart from being heavy and inconvenient to transport, good luck if your power outlet is behind the sofa! Inevitably, the prong head or the prongs themselves may bend, jeopardizing not only the power brick's functionality and safety, but also that of the device being charged.
As a result, one of Sirius 65W's most useful features was created by Einova's product designers. One of the two prong head positions will neatly overcome spatial challenges, whether your preferred socket is hopelessly inaccessible behind a piece of furniture or in the center of an overloaded power strip.
When the progs are horizontal, Sirius 65W hugs the wall and takes up very little extra room. When plugged into a power outlet, the charger is almost undetectable because it is flush against the wall surface. This is possible because much of the prong head is hidden inside the charger. Furthermore, Sirius 65W has a very slim profile (something we’ll look at more thoroughly later).
When lateral space is at a premium, such as when using the middle outlet on a crowded power strip, place the prongs vertically. To change the prong position, simultaneously push the two side buttons on the USB-C charger and pull the prongs out. Reinsert the prong head from the side and push it in while keeping the buttons firmly pressed. The mechanical components will slide into the designated slots.

One of Einova's main design goals was to keep Sirius 65W as small as possible. The charger's tiny dimensions, along with the removable prongs, would make it a perfect all-in-one portable charging option for a variety of USB-C devices.
Yet there was one further consideration. Since Sirius 65W was also meant to charge laptops, it had to be able to concentrate more power within the charger’s limited size. In technical terms, this characteristic is called power density. Einova surmounted this technical challenge by using EcoVoltas, the power conversion architecture developed and patented by Eggtronic. At the time of its launch in 2020, Sirius 65W was the smallest power adapter of its kind on the market.
Small and compact
Sirius 65W is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, measuring just 75 mm long, 50 mm wide, and 21/24 mm thick. For reasons of ergonomics and functionality, Einova product designers chose an irregular thickness. The upper section (24 mm) houses the power adapter's technological heart as well as the prong head mechanism. Why not slim it down a little as none of those things are in the bottom part? As a result, 3 mm was shaved off, allowing it to slide even more easily into your back pocket or laptop sleeve.
Removable USB-C cable
The compact size and dual position prongs are two facets of the charger’s travel-friendly design. But that’s not all. The included USB-C cable is removable, flat and covered in soft-touch plastic that is recognizable by touch alone. Both the material and shape help avoid tangles. Thanks to these features, stashing the cable in a purse or backpack (and retrieving it later) becomes even easier.
Shapes and colors
Functionality and how to fully leverage the full capabilities of a given technology are frequently prioritized over other factors when building a product. This is particularly true in the field of consumer electronics. However, additional qualities of a product's uniqueness can be communicated through product design. It's a signature, made up of forms and colors, that instantly distinguishes a company and its visual strategy.
Though we delve more deeply into the meaning behind the colors and shapes of Einova elsewhere, it’s worth noting some of the ways that Einova’s visual creativity comes to life in Sirius 65W.
Unlike most chargers on the market today, the Sirius 65W is shaped like a rounded square. Each corner is gently beveled by the barely visible shape of a circle, forming a little triangle. The contour of the charger is softened and harmonized by this feature. It's also a nod to the shapes and colors that represent Einova's product categories: the magenta square for Wireless Power, the blue triangle for Power Banks, and the orange circle for Power Adapters.
Even a product’s color can convey uniqueness and a willingness to go against the grain. Einova chose classic glossy white and India ink instead of the conventional black for the Sirius 65W. The hue of the ink used for writing, drawing, and painting, which was manufactured from carbon pigments, inspired this shade between blue and gray. The color hints at a history that stretches across time and space, and by choosing it for Sirius 65W, Einova designers emphasized the charger's remarkable universality.
