Even with improved battery life on many recent notebooks, most of us still carry a bulky notebook charger around to keep our devices powered up on short trips. While are notebooks are thinner and lighter every year, many power bricks still remain big with an unwieldy length of cable to deal with. Plus they can only charge one device at a time.
The Zolt laptop charger aims to solve this problem with an incredibly small 70-watt laptop charger that can power your Laptop plus two USB devices at the same time.
Zolt is nearly a third of the size of an Apple MacBook Air charger and most notebooks chargers that ship with Ultrabooks and business notebooks.
The new charger is 3 inches long with a 1.3-inch diameter and it weighs 3 ounces. The basic version includes a 6-foot PC charging cable with 7 universal PC tips. The Zolt rotates up to 90 degrees so you can squeeze it in to tighter spaces.
Here is a look at some of the brands that this small charger works with;

Right now there is no MacBook Air or MacBook Pro solution, but the company plans to have an Apple MagSafe solution in place by the time the product ships this Spring. This added adapter will likely cost an additional $30.
The Zolt Laptop Charger Plus is available for pre-order now for $79 and will jump to $99 when the device ships this Spring.
