USB wall chargers come in all different shapes and sizes because much like power banks, it depends on what they feature. When a power bank has a higher power capacity it tends to be bigger. The same thing is similar to USB wall chargers but in their case, when there are more charging ports, then the USB charger is larger. USB wall chargers provide a great stable, and fast charging experience because portability isn’t that important because all your devices are simply kept in a single place. With that said, it’s the small aspects of USB chargers that are the most important.
In this case, this Aukey USB charger has 10 charging ports and the power behind them is just as good as the amount of charging ports there are.
There are 10 USB charging ports on the USB charger and that means that you can charge 10 devices at once. But more importantly, it’s better to know what those 10 charging ports are capable of.
With that said, 8 of the charging ports use Aukey’s AiPower charging and the other 2 charging ports use Quick Charge 3.0 that are able to charge Quick Charge compatible devices at their max charging speeds.
Ai Power Charging Ports:
The Green charging ports on the USB charger are able to Output 5V/2.4A charging speeds each. That means nearly all standard charging devices (Devices that don’t use Quick Charge) are going to be able to charge at their max charging speeds. This means that you can charge iPads at their max charging speeds with each of the AiPower charging ports.
Just how far can you take the max charging for iPads?
Well, the Max Output of the Aukey 10 Port USB charger is 14 Amps all at once. That means you can charge 5 iPads at once and all 5 of that iPad will be able to charge at their max charging speeds; because when you’re charging 5 iPads at once, then the Output of the USB charger is going to be 12 Amps, but adding another iPad will go beyond the Max Output capabilities of the USB charger because then it’d be 14.4A and that ‘s not possible.
So if you’re mainly using this USB charger to charge smartphones because you may be just placing this in the living or dorm room and have people charge their smartphones with the many charging ports that it has. Then each of the smartphones that are charging are going to be able to charge at their max charging speeds.
Quick Charge 3.0 Charging Ports:
Also, the charging speeds aren’t just limited to standard charging devices, it makes use of 2 charging ports that are dedicated to Quick Charge 3.0 charging. This is where the Aukey 10 port USB charger is actually better than the Anker PowerPort 10 because it actually makes use of the fast charging tech.
The charging speed of the Quick Charge ports doesn’t the disappointment because it outputs 3.6-6.5V/3A 6.5V-9V/2A 9V-12V/1.5A and those speeds are able to charge either your Quick Charge 2.0 or 3.0 compatible devices three times faster than regular charging.
Size and Weight:
Along with the many charging ports, comes a larger size to match.
The USB charger block is 6.6 inches in length, it has a width of 3.5 inches and a thickness of 1 inche. Quite a manageable size that can be simply placed on a table and used as a charging hub. We’re quite surprised by the weight of the charger because it weighs 10.4 ounces when normally chargers like these weigh 1 pound at least.
Instead of how normally USB chargers are designed with their charging ports on the side, this Aukey USB charger has all of its charging ports on top of it. This way there’s a LOT of space between the charging ports and there’s no issue with spacing, which makes organizing your charging cables very easy. The AiPower charging ports are colored Green and the Quick Charge charging ports are colored Orange.
On the side of the USB charger is where the there’s the PowerCord insert and the power switch. It’s very convenient to have the ability to simply switch the power off rather than having to unplug the USB charger. It uses a 3 Foot power cord that is perfect for placing the charging block on a desk for easy access.
When you plug the USB charger into an AC Outlet, there’s small green light that turns on and that makes it useful to see the charger in the dark. Also, there 4 rubber placing under the USB charger that raises the charger from the surface that it’s on as a way to prevent scratching and sliding of the charger.
Structure and Material:
The USB charger is made of plastic and it’s VERY well constructed with the use of just 2 main pieces; the top and bottom piece.
When you have the ability to charge 10 devices at once, then there should definitely be the safety tech to back it up. In this case, the USB charger uses safeguards like Current-Control, Over-Charging and Over-Heating Control to ensure that charging is as safe as possible no matter how fast or how many devices you’re charging.
If you think that you’re going to need a USB charger that is able to charge 10 devices at once or at least close to that number, then this USB charger is very useful. However, there’s also the Anker PowerPort 10 that has very similar features but actually, in some ways, the Aukey 10 Port USB charger is better.
This is because there’s the Quick Charge 3.0 charging ports that those with Quick Charge 3.0 compatible devices can use, and the charging port design is far better as there’s more space between the charging ports for better organization.
Power is not an issue because you can potentially charge 10 devices at once and each of the charging ports is able to Output either a Max Standard charging speed of 2.4A or Quick Charge speeds. That Max Output of 14 Amps ensures that you receive a lot of power even when you’re charging multiple devices at once.
It has a very good design because all the charging ports are on top of the charger and that provides lots of spacing with them. There’s a switch to turn it On and Off
An absolutely solid build that that only uses 2 main pieces and safety tech that ensures that charging is always safe.
This USB charger is very reliable for either charging 1 or 10 devices at once. Not only that, it’s the power that is reliable too.
Specs of the Aukey 10 Port USB Wall Charger:
AiPower (Green Charging Ports): 5V/2.4A
Quick Charge 3.0 Port: 3.6-6.5V/3A 6.5V-9V/2A 9V-12V/1.5A
- Quick Charge: Yes
- LED Power Indicator: Yes

USB chargers are very useful when you want to charge many devices at once. This Aukey charger does a great job at providing an optimal charging experience with its 10 charging ports and the Max Output limit of 14A isn’t really a limit because it would take 5 iPads to reach that kind of limit. Even charging 5 iPads at their max charging speeds at once is already impressive in itself.
