Sometimes Google adds a new product to its online retail presence, the Google Store. Today, that new product is a regular ol’ Belkin USC Type-C car charger. And it costs a whopping $45.

That should be enough for you to stop reading this article, roll your eyes, and move along with your day. But if for some reason you’re still interested in this overpriced accessory, here’s what you get in the box:

  • USB Type-C car adapter
  • 1.2 m USB Type-C to Type-C cable (USB 2.0 speed)

Google says that its requirements include a car outlet (duh), and a USB Type-C powered device (duh). Among the devices that it suggests you “enjoy it with,” the company lists the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Pixel C, and Chromebook Pixel. If you’re paying $45 dollars for a charger, I say forget Google — use it with whatever device you want.

Be sure to follow 9to5Toys if you’re looking for a USB C car charger that isn’t 3 times the price it should be, such as the perfectly great Aukey car charger that we featured a couple weeks ago for $15.
