All you need is one charging block

If you’re still carrying more than one charging block with you, you’re doing it wrong.

As long as you have your laptop and a laptop charger with you, you can charge any device out of your laptop.

I haven’t carried a regular charging block in years at this point. Every night before I go to sleep, I plug in my Macbook into the wall and then plug in my iPhone, Airpods and iPad into my Macbook. By the morning, they’re all at 100% charge.

Whenever you buy a new device nowadays, they come with their own chargers. But they’re honestly pretty wasteful and unecessary if you use this approach.

It’s even better if all your ports line up. Right now, I just have 3 USB-C to lightning cords, plus a USB-C to USB converter. My earphones, tablet and phone all take lightning, and my macbook has all USB-C. This makes things really convenient.

This method reduces the number of “things” you own and allows you to live with less. You can declutter your mind and have one less thing you could potentially lose. Hooray 😃
