MOS | Reach C
The MOS Reach C is the power extension solution for stationary charging or on the go. The Reach C extends from one power outlet to three USB-A ports and one USB-C port. It is a great add-on for the MOS Pack, or as a standalone desktop charging station.

I had it before since I got it with the book bag but the cable broke from so much use so I bought a new one
So far, it has worked perfectly fine, and performed as expected. It charges my Latitude 5495 and my LG V20. I've tried it with a 1.5ft Anker Thunderbolt 3/USB C 100W cable, as well as a 6ft Anker USB C (2.0) 60w cable, and it charges my laptop at the full 60w the adapter is rated for. No complaints at all; it is a USB C power adapter, and it does what it says on the box. It does NOT come with any USB cables (USB A, Micro, or USB C).
It comes in an orange box with black foam inside. Easy to open. It connects to the wall via a removable figure-8 power cable (IEC C7/C8 non-polarized). The power cable comes with a nice little velcro strap to make it easy to keep tied up when not in use. The ports don't perfectly line up with the front cover, but it isn't enough to cause a gap or issues plugging in a cable. It is very slight, and only really noticeable if you are looking right at the adapter head on at the ports up close. The ports seem to hold plugs in well enough, but not so much so that it is difficult to remove them.
The adapter is rated for 100V-240V AC 50/60HZ input, so there should be no problems using it anywhere in the world as long as you have a power cable that can plug into the wall. Type-C output is 5V/9V/12V/15V/20V at up to 3A (up to 60w), as per the rating on the side of the adapter. Build quality seems to be perfectly acceptable, and it doesn't feel like it will break any time soon. On a full charge of my laptop (which has the upgraded 68Wh battery), it gets warm to the touch towards the last 20-30% of charging, but not hot. I'd have no worries about using this adapter inside an enclosed space (like one of the MOS backpacks).
Great bag. Lots of capacity. I regularly fly with a 13" elitebook, an Asus external monitor, an 11" ereader, a large power unit/hub, keyboard, mouse, other electronics and a couple of days worth of clothes. My only complaint is that the "front" large cavity doesn't fully open up 90 degrees like the rear one does. This would make loading clothes etc into the bag a lot easier.
First review, woot!
I was a little hesitant to buy this, as it had no reviews, but I thought it was worth a shot. I’m glad I bought it!
I needed a second charging brick for my MacBook Pro, and I saw this Reach C at half the cost of the official Apple 61W brick, while including a 4 ft extension(Apple extensions are $19!) and 3 12W USB ports! It was a nobrainer. Plugged my laptop in, voila! 60W. Quickly checked all three USB ports and they are working great. Thanks MOS for a great budget friendly and versatile product!
