Review: iClever 6 Port Wall Charger with Quick Charge 3.0

Most USB wall chargers that have lots of charging ports, like in the 5 to 6 Port range, have all their charging ports quite close to together. This kind of design is very prevalent with lots of USB wall chargers on the market. However, even though it’s to make wall charger that has lots of charging ports more compact, the closeness of charging ports can result in things looking unorganized when you have lots devices connected to the USB charger.

In this case, this iClever 6 Port Wall charger is designed very differently than most USB wall chargers that also have 6 charging ports because its charging ports have more space in-between them, and even though it’s larger, we think it’s necessary for a better user experience.

Power

Output Charging:

There are 6 USB charging ports in total on the wall charger. 5 of the charging ports use SmartID technology which is another way of saying that 5 of those ports are able to Output 5V/2.4A. The other 1 port uses Quick Charge 3.0 technology that has charging speeds of 3.6/6.5-3A | 6.5/9V-2A | 9/12V-1.5A.

The Max Output of the USB wall charger is 8.4A.

Just How Good is the Charging?

Most standard devices will be able to charge at their max charging speeds with the SmartID charging ports and if you have a Quick Charge compatible smartphone then you should use it with the Quick Charge port. You can charge 3 iPads at the same at their max charging speeds because when you’re charging 3 iPads, that’s 2.4 x 3 and that equals 7.2A which is lower than the Max Output.

If you’re using all the charging ports and you’re using the charger at its Max Output of 8.4A, then each of the charging ports will have a charging speed of 5V/1.4A.

Design

Size and Weight:

Even with having its charging ports further apart than most 6 port wall chargers, the iClever Quick Charge wall charger isn’t too large but is still quite heavy.

It has a length of 3.9 inches, a width of 2.6 inches and a thickness of 1.2 inches. The weight of the charger is 13.6 ounces. It’s very portable if you want to take it for traveling purposes.

Functional Components:

The wall charger’s design is the main part that makes it great. This is because it has a flat surface and the charging ports are at the top of the charger, instead of the side where most USB ports are.

At the bottom is where there are rubber pads so the charger is able to say in one place and not slide or fall over. The charging ports have good spacing to them which makes connecting lots of devices at once an organized thing to do. It uses a power cord that’s 5 feet long that allow you to place it on your computer desk, and once the USB wall charger is connected, there’s a single Blue light that turns on to signal that it’s ready for charging.

Build

Structure and Material:

There’s nothing too special about the structure build quality because it’s just made of plastic; with that said, there are many separate pieces because all that’s used is a top, bottom, and one large center piece to make the wall charger whole.

Tech:

On the tech side, the wall charger does make use of very necessary tech like Current-Control, Short-Circuit, Surge Protections and Temperature control for when charging is being taken to the limits.

Reliability

Even though most wall chargers are generally the same, this one is not. This is because of its design that is able to give a better experience of use. You can more easily access the charging ports because they’re right on top, and things are going to look less hectic when you have lots of devices charging.

Each of the charging ports is able to deliver fast charging because those that own a Quick Charge compatible device can charge their smartphone at max charging speeds because there’s a Quick Charge 3.0 charging port that are compatible to use with both Quick Charge 3.0 and 2.0 devices. The design and power are both very reliable to use.

Summary:

Power:

5 charging ports deliver a 2.4A charging speed and one can accommodate Quick Charge devices.

Design:

A different and better design than most 6 port wall chargers. Since the charging ports are easier to see and use, and the charging ports are spaced quite generously.

Build:

A very well built wall charger that uses few pieces to make itself whole.

Reliability:

It’s a good wall charger for those that want a different experience of using a wall charger if you’ve only owned a wall charger that has charging ports on its side; there aren’t any concerns with its power.

Specs of the iClever 6 Port Wall Charger with Quick Charge 3.0:

  • Output:    Per Port: 5V/2.4A     Max Output: 12 Amps
  • Input: 5 USB Ports = 5V/2.4A     Quick Charge Port: 3.6/6.5-3A | 6.5/9V-2A | 9/12V-1.5A
  • Quick Charge: Yes
  • LED Power Indicator: Yes
  • Size: 3.9 x 2.6 x 1.2 inches
  • Weight: 13.6 ounces

Conclusion:

We really like what iClever has done with this USB Desktop charger, it’s clever. Its flat bottom design and up-facing charging ports make using it different and in most ways better than traditional USB wall chargers.

Review: RAVPower 6 Port USB Wall Charger

USB Wall chargers can have many charging ports, and each of those charging ports should have optimized charging power. That means each of the charging ports should be able to offer at least a Max Standard charging speed of 5V/2.4A because there are lots of devices that are able to charge starting at the 2 Amp range and beyond. Gone are the days of USB wall chargers offering 1 Amp charging speeds. There are still plenty of wall chargers that offer only 5V/1.0A charging speed but those most likely not optimized for the devices that you own. Also, when it comes to recharging power banks, it’s vital to have a USB wall charger that is able to recharge your power bank the fastest.

This is the RAVPower 6-Port Wall charger is not only able to boast in quantity but also in quality.

Power

Output Charging:

There 6 charging ports on the wall charger and that means you charge 6 devices at once. Sure, it’s nice to be able to charge 6 devices at once, but what’s even better is being able to charge those devices at fast charging speeds.

Each of the charging ports is able to Output 5V/2.4A and that great because it’s a Max Standard charging speed that’s going to charge nearly all the devices that you connect to this wall charger at their max charging speeds. However, this RAVPower USB wall charger is not going to be able to charge Quick Charge compatible devices at their max charging speeds simply because this charger does not feature Quick Charge.

With that said, you’ll actually be able to charge 5 iPads at the same time at their max charging speeds because the Max Output of the USB wall charger is 12 Amps all at once; and charging 5 iPads at the same time will reach that limit of 12 Amps. If you charge 6 iPads at once, then each of the iPads will charge at 2 Amps because that would make the Max Output still 12 Amps.

No matter what USB charging device you’re charging, it’ll be able to charge quite quickly with this wall charger whether it has Standard charging or Quick Charge charging. Also, it’s a great wall charger to use if you have a power bank to recharge because most power banks have a recharge rate of 5V/2.0A.

Design

Size and Weight:

It’s the size and weight that you’d expect a 6-Port USB wall charger to have. Although that doesn’t mean much because even though it is larger than other wall chargers, it’s still portable.

The charger has a length of 4 inches, a width of 2.7 inches and a thickness of 1.1 inches. The weight is 6.8 ounces. So it’s actually quite portable if you wanted to take it with you for traveling purposes, but we recommend to separate the Power Cable from the wall charger to make things more organized for traveling.

Functional Components:

All the charging ports are on a single side, however, they’re really close together and that can cause trouble for organizing charging cables for when you’re charging 5-6 devices at once. When you plug the wall charger in, the green light at the top of the charging ports lights up to indicate that it’s ready for charging.

The power cord that the wall charger uses is 1.5 Meters long, which makes it perfect for placing the wall charger onto your desktop table.

Build

Structure and Material:

The wall charger is made of Plastic but it still has a solid build with the most of the charger using only 3 pieces to become whole.

Tech:

When you have the possibility of charging 6 devices at once, then it’s clear that you’re going to need a lot of safety tech features to back-up the capabilities of such a powerful charging device.

In this case, the RAVPower 6 port wall charger has a Multi-Safe Protection system that is able to protect itself from Over-Charging, overheating through Temperature Control, Short-Circuit and Surge Protections to ensure that you and your devices are safe during charging.

Reliability

We think that most 6 Port wall chargers including this one are always going to reliable. Not because they have 6 charging ports, but because what they’re able to do with those 6 charging ports.

With this RAVPower USB charger, you’re not only able to charge 6 devices at once, but you’re also able to charge those devices at very fast charging speeds, and most likely at their max charging rates. The max Output of the charger is quite high and doesn’t put a heavy limit on charging.

Summary:

Power:

Each of the charging ports is able to Output 2.4 Amps and the max Output of 12 Amps at once makes it so you charge lots of device without compromising charging speed.

Design:

It’s about the size that you’d expect a 6 port USB wall charger to be. The charging ports are really close together and that can make it difficult to organize cables when you have lots of devices charging at once.

Build:

It has a strong structure and lots of safety tech features to make sure that charging goes smoothly no matter what you’re charging or how many devices you’re charging.

Reliability:

The amount of charging ports is reliable, but what makes the reliability even better is the power behind them.

Specs of the RAVPower 6 Port USB Wall Charger:

  • Output:    Per Port: 5V/2.4A     Max Output: 12 Amps
  • Input:
  • Quick Charge: No
  • LED Power Indicator: Yes
  • Size: 4 x 2.7 x 1.1 inches
  • Weight: 6.8 ounces

Conclusion:

USB wall chargers are now reaching a new standard where they’re supposed to be powerful. They’re supposed to offer the fast charging out of all the other charging electronics on the market. This is where that standard has been and it’s been done even with having 6 charging ports.

Review: Anear 60W 6 Port Desktop USB Charging Hub

When it comes to USB wall chargers, you shouldn’t go wrong with what you want to get because USB wall chargers supposed to provide the fastest charging out of all the charging electronics on the market. The main reason why you should focus on the quality of your wall charger is because you’re charging your device in a very sedentary manner and the last thing you need is for them to stay in that phase of simply being held down by a wire. Also, the next important thing is just how many devices you can charge at once.

Both of those aspects are things that you should look into and look into them deeply especially if you’re going to purchase something like this Anear 6 Port wall charger.

Power

Output Charging:

The Anear wall charger has 6 charging ports as you may have noticed from the image above and each of those charging ports is able to Output a Max Standard charging speed of 5V/2.4A. The USB wall charger does not have Quick Charge and so it will not be able to charge your Quick Charge compatible devices at their max charging speeds.

With that said, a charging speed of 2.4 Amps is still very fast and it’ll be able to charge most USB charging device very quickly and very well at their max charging speeds. This is true for Apple products like the iPhone and also true for the iPad because the iPad has a Max charging speed of 5V/2.4A.

In fact, since the Anear USB Desktop charging HUB has a Max Output of 12 Amps, so you charge 5 iPads at the same time and all 5 those iPads will be able to charge at their max charging speeds. If you’re charging 6 iPads at the same time, then all of them will be charging at 5V/2.0A.

You won’t be disappointed by the charging power that it has to offer because even a charging speed of 2 Amp per device is really good and if you’re charging 6 devices at once that receive that kind of power, that’s simply amazing.

Design

Size and Weight:

It has very similar size and weight characteristics that the Anker PowerPort 6  and the AllMaybe 6 Port wall charger has, so there aren’t any surprises here. It weighs 12.3 ounces.

Overall, even though it has 6 charging port, you can very well use this wall charger for traveling as long as you keep the power cord and the wall charger block itself separately.

Functional Components:

The charging ports have some space between them to keep them quite organized. There’s a lightning symbol that’s next to the charging ports and it lights up Blue when you plug the wall charger into an AC Outlet; also the wall charger uses a 5 Foot power cord that uses 2 prongs, so it can be used with all AC outlets.

It comes with a stand that allows the Anear wall charger to stand upright and that way it’s easier to use when you put it on your computer desk.

Build

Structure and Material:

The Anear USB wall charger is made of plastic and that all it really has to attribute to its physical build. Although we don’t think its physical build matters nearly as much as its tech one because what you should be worried the most about is how it handles being able to charge 6 devices at once or lower.

Tech:

It uses an array of safety protection systems that are able to keep you and your devices safe during charging. This is because Anear uses Multi-Safe Protection system that makes uses of Temperature Control, Short-Circuit Protection, and Surge control.

They’ve made sure to have as many certifications as possible to make sure that they’re providing the safest possible USB charging with CE, FCC, RoHS, PSE and CCC certifications. However, they do not have a UL certification.

Reliability

If you want a USB wall charger that can charge many devices at the same time and be able to charge that device quite quickly then this Anear USB charger is perfect.

The output power of 2.4 Amp per port and the Max Output of 12 Amps puts the limit to the sky because even when you’re using the full power of charger throughout each of its charging ports, each port will still manage 2 Amps.

Summary:

Power:

Max standard charging of 5V/2.4A through each of its charging ports and a Max Output of 12A provides lots of charging power to even tablets.

Design:

Same kinds of design like most 6 port wall chargers.

Build:

The physical build is good but what really takes the cake is the amount of Tech safety features that it uses to keep charging stable even when you’re pushing the wall charger to its limits.

Reliability:

We highly recommend getting this wall charger if you want your family to have a single powerful charging point in the living room where all of you can charge your devices.

Specs of the Anear 60W 6 Port Desktop USB Charging Hub:

  • Output:   Per Port: 5V/2.4A     Max Output: 12 Amps
  • Input:
  • Quick Charge: No
  • LED Power Indicator: Yes
  • Size: Same as most 6 Port Wall Chargers
  • Weight: 12.3 ounces

Conclusion:

USB wall chargers are meant to provide the most power because it’s basically equivalent exchange. You’re being limited to a certain amount of space but the charging should be fast enough to let you free of the charging. This is what the Anear wall charger does with its 6 charging ports and the power behind them.

Review: AllMaybe 6-Port USB Wall Charger

In the world of wall chargers, there are many things to account for. This is because a USB Wall Charger is one of the most used charging electronics and it’s supposed to be one of the best powerful ones that you use as well. USB wall chargers can have all the charging tech that is available on the market and this means that they can have USB-C, Quick Charge, and any other charging technology simply because they’re so stationary and they don’t hold their own power source like power banks do.

Then there’s variation and standardization that comes with these highly elite electronics, and in this case, we’re talking about this AllMaybe 6-Port wall charger; it does indeed have 6 Ports, so let’s see what it can do and why it’s perfect for your daily charging lifestyle.

Power

Output Charging:

One of the most apparent things with the best of wall chargers is their powering capabilities. USB wall chargers are supposed to be powerful and that kind of aspect isn’t any different here. This AllMaybe 6-Port wall charger has 6 charging ports, and yes, this means that you can charge 6 devices at the same time. However, it’s great to charge 6 devices at once, it also depends on what the experience will be like when you charge those 6 devices all at once.

It’s Able to Output lots of power. Individually, and All together.

With that said, there’s really no need to worry about it giving out power and this is mainly because the AllMaybe’s Wall charger has top tier charging power. Each of the USB Ports is able to Output 2.4 Amps of power, and that is the Max Standard charging speed. You can charge devices from iPads to smartphones at their max charging speeds. Although you can’t charge Quick Charge compatible smartphones at their max charging speed, since this wall charger does not have Quick Charge but it can still charge those devices pretty quickly as well.

Not only is the individual charging speed of the charging ports impressive, what’s also impressive is the max Output. The Max Output of the USB wall charger is 12 Amps. So you can’t charge 6 devices all at once with them all charging at 2.4 Amps charging rate, but you can charge 6 devices at once with them all having a charging speed of 2 Amps each. This is because if 6 devices were to charge all once with 2.4 Amps of power each, then that would make the Output of 14.4, but the max Output is 12 Amps.

Instead, if you’re maxing it out, the USB wall charger will only be able to Output 2 Amps out of each port because the total Amp current will sum up to 12 Amps. Even with each of the ports Outputting 2 Amps, that’s still enough power to charge most smartphones at their max charging speed and even tablets will charge fast enough.

Overall, there’s nothing wrong with the powering capabilities, since you can very well charge 5 iPads at the same time and have them all charge at their max charging speeds.

Design

Size and Weight

Initially, you might think that a USB wall charger with 6 charging ports is going to be large and cumbersome but the truth is that at its base, this wall charger can actually be very portable.

It has a length of 3.9 inches, a width of 3.1 inches and a thickness of 1.1 inches. So it’s actually really small and it weighs only 7 ounces. Overall, at its base, the wall charger without its power cord isn’t something that is cumbersome because it’s basically a small cube. It’s when you add in the power cord and the charging cables are when you get into territory that makes the wall charger quite messy.

Functional Components

What we mean by messy is that there can be a lot of charging cables used with this wall charger. It doesn’t have built-in plug pins, so a power cord is used. If you plan on traveling with it, then it’s best to either keep the power cord plugged into the wall charge and simply wrap it around the wall charger itself. Or you could just keep the wall charger and the power cord separate.

Then there’s the nature of the wall charger itself with it having 6 charging ports. If you plug in 6 charging cables all at once, the cables can look quite messy but honestly, this is something to be expected. If you want to move the wall charger around with 6 charging cables within it, then it’s best to be careful so you don’t damage the charging cables.

All of the 6 Ports are on a single side, and we wish that the ports have some space between them for more organization but the ports being very close together make the wall charger itself very small. Overall, it’s an absolutely stellar wall charger that you can easily place onto your computer desk and have various devices charging at once.

When the wall charger is plugged into an outlet it has a Blue LED light that turns on regardless if any cables are connected to it or not. It’s not that bright to be obstructive while you’re sleeping, so that’s nice.

Build

Structure and Material

It’s a wall charger and there’s really not much to say about the structure and material of its build. This is because this isn’t like a power bank where you’d take it with you and have a chance of it falling and damaging itself.

With that said, the physical structure is very well put together with its near uni-body structure. The base material is made of plastic and it’s enveloped in rubber that keeps the wall charger safe. Other than that, there’s not much to it. you can take it with you for traveling purposes and it shouldn’t have any problems holding up.

Tech

On the tech side, the wall charger has a Multi-Faceted protection system, and this is very important to have when you have the ability to charge 6 devices at once. The AllMaybe wall charger features Voltage/Current control, Surge/Short-Circuit protection, Temperature control and the ability to reset itself if things get too heated.

With all that said, though, when you’re charging about 4 devices or more at the same time and you’re charging them quickly, then the USB wall charger can send out this very low hissing noise. This can be bothersome if you’re charging many devices at once while you’re trying to sleep.

Reliability

Of course, it’s going to be reliable! It has 6 charging ports and each of them is able to charge at 2.4 Amps. The best part is the max Output of 12 Amps and this means that you can still charge devices at a very fast charging rate even when the Max Output has been reached.

The only thing that we find unreliable, is the amount of chaos that can ensue when you’re charging 6 devices at once because all the charging cables look very messy and things can get tangled up. We think that more spacing between the charging ports would make the organization much better.

Summary:

Power:

Charging power matches other 6-Port wall chargers and that is a good thing. This AllMaybe one is able to Output 2.4 Amps of charging speed throughout each of its ports. Even when the Max Output of 12 Amps is reached, and each port is limited to 2 Amps, the charging speed is still enough to charge most devices very quickly. By the way, the ability to charge 6 devices at once is amazing.

Design:

When you discount the charging cables and the power cord, the wall charger itself is very small. It won’t really pose many problems if you want to travel with it and we think that the only design flaw is the charging ports being so close to each other.

Build:

The structure and tech are great with the wall charger using fire resistant material and plenty of safety to keep you and your devices safe during charging. It does make a slight hissing noise when you’re charging many devices at once, though.

Reliability:

Reliability is at an all time high because you can charge 6 devices at once.

Specs of the AllMaybe 6-Port USB Wall Charger:

  • Output:          Max Output Capabilities: 12A             Max Output Per Port: 5V/2.4A
  • Input:
  • Quick Charge: No
  • LED Power Indicator: 1 Blue LED
  • Size: 3.9 x 3.1 x 1.1 inches
  • Weight: 7 ounces

Conclusion:

The AllMaybe 6 Port wall charger does a great service to the wall charging space of charging electronics. It has fast charging, pretty good portability and a very well thought out build quality. If you plan on recharging many power banks at once, this is definitely a reliable one.

Review: Anker PowerPort+ 6 with Quick Charge 3.0

 

When it comes to wall chargers, there’s a lot of options of what kind of wall charger you want to get. More precisely you’re going to have to choose how many ports you want with your wall charger. You can have anywhere from 1 single port to a USB wall charger with a total of 10 ports (Yeah it does exist, it’s called the Anker PowerPort 10). Your choice of determining what wall charger you want is a very important choice because it can affect your overall charging life. You’re going to need a wall charger with enough ports, with enough power, and with a great design.

In this review, we’ve got this Anker PowerPort+6 wall charger that is pushing the limits of what USB wall chargers are able to offer. It might just be able to give you what you need when it comes to charging your devices and recharging your power banks in a timely manner.

Power

 

There’s a total of 6 charging ports with this wall charger and there’s a lot of power to go around.

Output:        Power IQ: 5V/2.4A Per Port          Single Quick Charge 3.0 Port: 3.6-6.5V/2.4A      6.5-9V/2A       12V/1.5A

There are 5 charging ports that feature Anker’s PowerIQ charging, which is basically saying the PowerIQ ports are standard charging without Quick Charge but are still able to deliver fast charging. Each of the PowerIQ ports is able to have an output of 5V/2.4A, which means that they’ll be able to charge most non-compatible Quick Charge devices at their max speeds. iPads are a great example because the max charging speed for an iPad is 2.4 Amps, so using this wall charger to charge an iPad is ideal. The same goes for smartphones because most smartphones that aren’t Quick Charge compatible have a max charging speed of 1A to 2A. Overall, you’d use the PoweIQ ports for nearly all your non-Quick Charge compatible devices simply because it’s able to deliver the most power for those devices.

Then there’s the Single Quick Charge 3.0 charging ports that should be used by Quick Charge 3.0 or 2.0 compatible devices. The charging speed that you’ll get from the Quick Charge port is actually quite good. It’s not really different in terms of Amperage Current that you’ll be receiving, however, there’s an increase in voltage during charging from the Quick Charge port. As a result, you can expect faster charging for your Quick Charge compatible devices with Amp current being more stable throughout the charging process. Also, as we mentioned before, you can use this Quick Charge 3.0 port with Quick Charge 2.0 compatible devices as well because it’s backward compatible.

With all the faster charging going on, there’s still a limit to the Output charging. The Total Output of the charger is 12 Amps, which means that the charging speed will be capped at 12 Amps if you keep adding devices. So you can actually charge 5 iPads with all 5 PowerIQ ports at 5V/2.4A at the same time because at that point the total Output will be 12 Amps. However, if you plug a device into the Quick Charge port, then the charging speed of the PowerIQ ports for the iPads will be lowered to be equal to the 12 Amp limit. With that said, this kind of limit will most likely not be reached unless you’re actually charging more than 3 iPads at a single time. If you’re charging 6 smartphones, then the wall charger will most likely not reach its limit because smartphones require less Amperage Current.

This is one the best USB wall chargers we’ve ever seen because it will not only provide plenty of power for charging smartphones or tablets, but it also applies to charging a power bank. Many power banks have 2A Input changing and some power banks like the Anker PowerCore 268000mAh or EasyAcc 26,000mAh power bank have 2 Micro-USB Input ports. So using this wall charger would be ideal to recharging a power bank at full speed. Actually, it can charge many power banks at full speed.

4th iPad Speed5V/2.4A5V/2.4A
5th iPad Speed5V/2.4A
Total Output5V/2.4A4.8A7.2A9.6A12A

Design

Of course, this wall charger does not feature built-in plug pins because if that were to happen, then the charger would be sagging from the wall outlet and falling out. Instead, it opts to use to use a power cord, for easier access and an overall better user experience. The wall charger itself is perfectly designed with a very predictable size. It’s 4.1 inches in length, 3.1 inches wide and 1.1 inches thick. It weighs 7.8 ounces. Overall the dimensions and weight of the wall charger are to be expected for a 6-port wall charger.

 

The power cord that comes with the wall charger is 5 feet long, and when you connect it to an outlet or a surge protector, you can freely place it on a desk or whichever surface is easy to access. The best thing about wall chargers like these is that the charging ports are all on aligned one after another in a horizontal orientation. It’s very easy to plug in 6 charging cables and to charge 6 devices all at once.

For traveling purpose, there’s really nothing hold you back. If you find that the power cord or the size of the wall charger itself is a hassle to travel with; then it would be best to search for a lower port wall charger. This is because nearly every 6 port wall charger will have the same design scheme.

Build

Most of the wall charger is made with a plastic, except for the faceplate that’s made of Aluminum Alloy. It’s a brushed metal surface that makes the wall charger look quite good and is strongly placed so it won’t fall out. Overall, the outer structure of the wall charger is great and there’s nothing wrong with it unless you drop it.

It’s on the inside that the 6 Port wall charger is supposed to excel and it does well at it. It has Anker’s Multi-Protection safety system which has various safety tech like Temperature control, Total Current Limiter, Surge Protection and Short-Circuit Protection. When 5 or 6 devices are connected to the wall charger all the same time, the charger can tend to get quite hot. This is because there’s a lot of Amp current that’s being pushed out during charging, which generates heat. As a result, the temperature controller is able to limit Amp current if the wall charger becomes too hot and by doing so it avoids damage to the wall charger and your devices.

Reliability

This is near the max potential that wall chargers can be taken. Not only can you charge 6 devices all at once, but you can most likely charge nearly all of them at max speed. This wall charger is perfect if you expect a to be charging many of your own devices all at the same time, or if you have many people that need to charge their devices in a single place; then this would be the ideal charging machine. It’s definitely a wall charger that would make the best use of in a college dorm.

If you’re worried about traveling with this wall charger, there’s not much reason to be. This is because the power cord is removable and the charger itself is quite small considering the amount of ports it has.

 

There’s nothing to complain about here. The PowerPort 6 has 6 charging ports to charge 6 devices at the same time. You’ll most likely be charging every single one of your devices at its max speed. Additionally, one of the 6 ports uses Quick Charge 3.0 that can be used to charge Quick Charge 3.0 or 2.0 compatible devices at a fast charging rate. Even with the 12 Amp Output limit, there’s not much holding this wall charger back.

 

The one real problem that few people will have is the use of a power cord. This is because you may want to travel and the power cord may be just another thing to worry about. However, everything else is good from the short dimensions to the relatively light weight. Although there’s no LED light to indicate that the wall charger is working, that would have been nice to have.

 

It’s a strong and solid build on the outside with  Aluminum Alloy plate where the charging ports are. The real build is on the inside with plenty of safety tech, but the wall charger can heat up if you’re charging 5 to 6 ports at the same time.

 

Of course, it’s reliable with the ability to charge 6 devices at the same time and near their max charging speed. Portability can be a tough thing with the power cord, though.

Review: Amazon Basics 6-Port Wall Charger

 

We’ve already reviewed Amazon Basics 2-Port car charger and their 16,100mAh power bank. The both of them had their faults and we expected more from the giant that is Amazon; Since the chargers really met the basics and fell under the basics of what they should deliver. This time, we’re reviewing this Amazon Basics wall charger that has 6-Ports and could possibly rise above Amazon’s Basic title of being just basic.

Power

 

The first thing about this wall charger that you’ll notice is the 6 charging ports and you can potentially charge 6 devices at the same time. Clearly, this wall charger is meant for someone that intends to charge many devices at once; or this wall charger can have many charging cables connected to it so charging cables are prepared to charge when the user wants to charge their device.

Of course, the next most important thing about having so many ports is the charging speed that you’re able to get from it. The wall charger is able to deliver an output charging speed of 5V/2.4A throughout each of its charging ports. With that said, though, the wall charger has a max output of 12 Amps. This isn’t something to fret about, though, because the wall charger is able to deliver a max charging output of 5V/2.4A with each of its ports even if you have 5 iPads connected to the wall charger.

This is because iPads can charge at 2.4 Amps and by charging 5 iPads simultaneously, it will bring the total Amp output of the wall charger to 12 Amps which meets the maximum charging output that the Amazon Basics wall charger is capable of. Adding another device to a 5 iPad situation would then make the max charging speed of each port to become 5V/2.0A since the max output has been exceeded and the only way to meet the max charging output is to make the output of the charging ports at 2 Amps.

Overall, even with the charging speed going to 2 Amps with each port when the maximum output speed is reached, which can be quite rare, a charging speed of 2 Amps still falls into a moderately fast charging category. The Amazon Basics wall charger really meets the power expectations that we should expect from a wall charger, not only that, but this wall charger with 6 ports is still able to deliver a fast charging experience. It stands head to head with other wall chargers like the PowerPort 6.

Design

 

The best word to describe this wall charger is that it’s very basic and that’s not a problem. The wall charger is 4 inches in length, 2.6 inches in width and is 1.1 inches thick. It’s got the general size that you’d expect from a wall charger that has 6 charging ports, so there’s nothing surprising there.

Of course, there aren’t any plug pins installed into the wall charger because it would be useless since the wall charger would be sagging down and fall out if it were connected to a wall outlet. Instead, the 6 port USB wall charger uses a power cord that’s 5 feet long so you can conveniently plug it into a wall outlet or surge protector and place the wall charger wherever you’d like.

It’s a great wall charger if you want to have more freedom while charging your device with wall charger since wall chargers are known to be quite limiting since you have to be close to the charger. Instead, you can bring this wall charger more towards you because of the power cord and along with your charging cable that’s hopefully 6 feet or longer; this wall charger can give you a very liberal feel while using it.

 

If you want to travel with this wall charger, it’s not really a problem. The wall charger itself is small enough to fit into nearly any handbag and you’d just have to keep track of the power cord. However, if you want a more loose and carefree traveling experience with a smaller wall charger, then we recommend going with a wall charger with less charging ports because wall chargers with 5 ports and above tend to be this bulky and require a power cord for the best experience.

The wall charger has a Blue LED light that turns on when the wall charger is plugged into an outlet. It’s a good thing to have because you may want to know where the wall charger is in a dark setting. It’s surprisingly not that bright and doesn’t obstruct sleeping.

Lastly, the biggest design flaw with the Amazon Basics wall charger is that it makes sounds. It’s not exactly a loud sound, but if you’re charging 4 devices or more at the same time, then the wall charger tends to make a hissing sound. Although the LED light isn’t obtrusive, this sound can be and it can be a deal breaker for someone that doesn’t even expect there to be sounds coming from a wall charger. I find this to be quite the surprise myself.

Build

The material of the wall charger is plastic and is well built, or at least it’s built to the same standards as other 6-port wall chargers. The Amazon Basics wall charger has a uni-body center and two panels. The first panel is where the 6 charging ports are installed and the other is where the power cord plug is. It’s good design that transfers over to being a great build.

Going into the internals of the wall charger, the 6-port wall charger has the necessary safety technology when there are this much charging ports. It features temperature control which is important for when there are a lot of devices connected to the wall charger because the since there’s a lot of Amp current being generated there’s a lot of heat. If the wall charger is getting too hot, then it will decrease the amount of Amp current that it’s outputting. We think that this is an awesome and completely logical feature to have since it keeps your devices, the wall charger and you safe from a fire. Sure, it does decrease charging speed if things become too heated but it’s worth it.

The wall charger also features over-current protection which is useful if the wall charger is outputting too much current to a device. Although this is more of a way to let you know that the wall charger is able to adapt what charging speed your device requires.

Reliability

The reliability of this wall charger is where it starts out from. The 6-port wall charger can provide a fast charging experience for either 1 device or 6 devices all at the same time. Ultimately its reliability is highly expansive depending on how you use it. Even if you plan on charging devices that can charge at 2.4A charging speed, the wall charger does a great job with charging at 2 Amps. Otherwise, in nearly every charging variable, this wall charger is able to deliver a possible output of 2.4 Amps, which is the max standard charging speed.

We think that this wall charger is ideal for people that want to have a very constant and easy charging experience. That’s because no one has to unplug their charging cable or someone else’s charging cable to charge their own device. Rather, they can leave their charging cable in the wall charger because of its 6 ports, so there’s plenty of options of who that can be connected to the charging hub at the same time.

 

Its strongest point, the power of the Amazon Basics wall charger is powerful because each of its ports is able to deliver a charging speed of 5V/2.4A until it reaches a maximum charging output of 12 Amps; In that case, the wall charger then lowers down to 5V/2.0A charging speed per port.

 

The Wall charger’s shape, size, and weight are all that you’d expect from a wall charger of its capabilities. It uses a power cord and that means you can put it where it’s more convenient to you. There’s a LED light on the wall charger that lights up when it’s connected to an outlet. Although everything about the Amazon Basic’s wall charger is solid, it makes a hissing noise if you’re charging many devices at the same time and this can be very disruptive if you’re sleeping or working in a quiet environment.

 

It’s a solid build even with the wall charger being made of plastic, but it’s more abut how the structure is put together. There’s a just the uni-body center and the two panels that are located where the charging ports are and the where the power cord plugs into. The wall charger also has very necessary safety tech features such as Temperature control and Current control to tame this 6-Port wall charger.

 

This charger’s reliability begins with just a single device and it can grow its reliance 5 more times because it’s capable of charging 6 devices at the same time. The power capabilities of the charger don’t wane too much even when it’s pushed to the limits.

Conclusion:

Amazon has a definitely built a strong wall charger that far surpasses their attempts at making a Car charger and power bank. The Amazon Basics wall charger is able to meet the expectations of other competing wall chargers that also provide powerful charging and similar design. It may have a hissing sound that may be a deal breaker since no one really wants to hear sounds from their wall charger but other than that, the 6 ports, fast charging, manageable portability and highly usable features are all worth getting this wall charger.
