There are plenty of all wall chargers that fit different kinds of needs. If there’s one thing that’s true in this day and age, it’s that there are many variables when it comes to charging our electronics.

There’s a need to charge many devices all at once, even if they’re not our own device, wall chargers can serve as a haven hub for charging. Overall wall chargers are highly capable.

The Lumsing 5-port wall charger is able to deliver a charging experience that matches many USB wall chargers and in some ways, it surpasses them as well.

Power

There are high power standards for USB wall charger because they’re the most limited kind of charging electronic when it comes to being free while charging a device.

As a result, many wall chargers are being built to the brim of charging speed and that’s what you should look for in a wall charger. This Lumsing 5-port wall charger is able to deliver just that and a tad bit more.

Faster Charging Speed Per Port than Most Other USB Chargers

So you probably know that this wall charger is able to charge 5 devices at once, so it’s great for charging multiple devices.

The most surprising power aspect of this wall charger is that each port is able to push out a charging speed of 5V/3.0A. Usually, the norm for a wall charger that features many charging ports, is that each port is able to achieve a charging speed of 5V/2.4A and that’s it.

However, in this case, each of the charging ports on this 5-port wall charger is like a Quick Charge port.

As amazing as it sounds and believe me, it is! The wall charger is only capable of delivering a max output of 8 Amps.

So overall you’ve got two charging ports that have the potential to be Quick Charge ports that deliver 5V/3.0A charging speed.

One of the drawbacks with just having the ability to usher out 8 Amps only is that if you’re using all 5 ports, then there’s no way that any of the charging ports is going to be charging at 2 Amps, because 5 ports charging at 2 Amps each is going to put the total Amp output at 10 Amps which is impossible.

Therefore, if you’re charging 5 devices that require 2 or more Amps of charging speed, then it’s going to be quite slow for those devices. This goes for devices like iPads, smartphones that charge in the 2 Amp speed or Quick Charge smartphones.

Faster than the Standard

Even though the wall charger is able to achieve a 3 Amps charging speed through its ports, the 3 Amps is only going with 5 Volts.

This means that the 3 Amps charging speed will not always be kept constant and as a result, your device that is able to take 3 Amps of charge will not charge at 3 Amps constantly, because of the low voltage.

Ultimately this Lumsing wall charger does something different by allowing all the charging ports to have a capability of charging at 3 Amps but it comes at a price with charging 5 devices because the charging speed will be equalized through each charging port and charging may become slower.

Power designs like Aukey 5-Port wall charger is an alternative for this wall charger, since it too has 5 ports but each port is capable of charging at 5V/2.4A and the max output of it is 10 Amps.

So if all the ports are used and it’s over 10 Amps, then each port will default to 5V/2.0A charging speed.

We found that the Lumsing 5-port USB wall charger takes a risk with its ability to charge fast out of each port, while still having a low maximum output charging speed.

The above table is simply a theoretical analysis of what the optimum charging experience would be like with this wall charger.

Design

The size of the wall charger is to be expected. Shaped like a small brick, the wall charger’s length is 3.6 inches, a width of 2.3 inches and a thickness of 1.1 inches.

It’s a small wall charger, considering that it has 5 ports, the wall charger can actually be portable if you need it for traveling purposes.

There’s just one drawback, though, it doesn’t have built-in plugins. Instead, this wall charger uses a 1.5 Meter power cord that you need to either plug into a wall outlet or a surge protector.

We don’t think of the power chord as a holdback, though. Wall chargers are a limited range of charging option, meaning that it’s hard to be free when you’re charging your device using a wall charger.

When you combine the length of your charging cable (Assuming it’s long) and the power chord of the wall charger, then you get more versatility with the amount you can move away from the wall charger and still use your device.

Sure, if you’re traveling with this wall charger it can be a drag to have to wrap the power cord around the wall charger but considering the charging experience and freedom that you can get make it worth it.

The shape of the wall charger takes on a straight-edged look. Comparing it with Anker’s wall chargers and how they’re curved with no straight edges.

The Lumsing USB wall charger does have a few edges and that’s pretty good because the edges make the wall charger able to stand right up; As a result, you can put this charger on your computer desk where it’ll look awesome.

The charging ports are placed one after another and are very organized. If there’s one thing that stood to me the most is an “IQ” logo and a white line going around the charging ports.

This may or may not have been inspired from Anker’s PowerIQ and although we understand what Lumsing is trying to convey here, we just think that they could have created their own symbol for fast charging.

Build

The Lumsing wall charger is made from polycarbonate and is strong when it comes to potential damage to the charger.

Polycarbonate is able to withstand falls and scratches, so it’s structurally strong.

Along with the wall charger being made of strong material, it mostly has a uni-body design expect for the panel where the charging ports and the back panel where the power cord is connected. We found that the Lumsing wall charger was built to last.

On the technical build side of things, the wall charger uses safety technology to ensure that there’s safe charging even when outputting its maximum potential of charging speed.

Overall there’s not really much to say about the Lumsing wall charger because it’s encompassed in a strong material prepared for nearly any situation and safety tech that is prepared to adapt to a changing charging environment.

Reliability

We found that this 5-port wall charger is reliable in nearly any scenario.

The charging speed of each of its ports sends out plenty of Amps that it can charge Quick Charge devices at their Quick Charge speed, as well as Macbooks can charge at their own charging speeds.

Charging an iPad with this and other smartphones generally holds no limits, but there’s a simple drawback with the max output being 8 Amps.

So if you’re planning on charging 3 iPads and more devices at the same time, then you’re going to be relying on a charging speed that’s been spread out and no longer charging your devices at max speed; Especially the iPads.

The wall charger is really good if you want more freedom when it comes to wall charging as a whole because the power cord allows you to have more distance and you can place the charger nearly anywhere that’s convenient for you.

The power cord can be a bit of a bummer to have if you’re searching for a 5-port USB wall charger for traveling purposes but it’s only 1.5 Meters long and once you plug it in, the wall charger delivers.

The Lumsing wall charger is able to deliver a fast, powerful and free charging experience that has its setbacks but they’re not as prevalent or quality degrading as you think.

The wall charger can be its worst if you’re charging many devices that require a lot of Amperages (Devices like a tablet and Quick Charge compatible devices) and if you don’t, then it should perform strongly.

Summary

Power:

Powering capabilities are different from other wall chargers.

Each port has the ability to output a charging speed of 5V/3.0A and although the 3 Amps may not always be constant, it’s still a fast charging output.

It’s awesome that you can charge 5 devices all at once but the 8 Amp output limit can disrupt the charging experience if you’re charging many devices at the same time and the output goes beyond 8 Amps and as a result charging speed may be slowed down to meet the maximum charging output of 8 Amps.

Design

It’s a highly objectively designed wall charger that is small and surprisingly features straight edges.

The wall charger uses a power cord to be used instead of built-in plugs.

With the cord, the user can have more freed of where they can place the wall charger but for people on-the-go it can be quite cumbersome.

Build:

We couldn’t find any flaws pertaining to the build of the Lumsing wall charger. Its polycarbonate material, safety tech and nearly uni-body design make the wall charger a very strong fortress.

Reliability:

It’s a reliable wall charger that can deliver a near consistent charging experience. If you’re charging many Quick Charge devices or tablets, then your experience will suffer. However, for the most part, its power and user experience will keep you going, day in and day out.
