There are USB wall chargers and then there are USB charging stations which are essentially the same thing.
That said, USB charging stations have more USB ports for charging, even more, devices at the same time and that also gives them the option for using special charging tech with more than just a single USB port.
In this case, we’re talking about this Aukey 6-Port USB charging station that features not just one but two Quick Charge ports. This type of charging electronic is not very common on the market and that’s why we thought it would be great to go in-depth to know what this charger is capable of.
Let’s take a closer look.
There are 6 USB charging ports on this charger. 4 of the ports has a charging speed of 5V/2.4A that is really good considering they’re basically able to charge any Non-Compatible Quick Charge device at its max charging speed.
This is true for when it comes to charging smartphones and tablets such as iPads and some Samsung Galaxy tablets that don’t use Quick Charge.
That said, the main event of this charging station is its use of Quick Charge and how it has two USB ports that use Quick Charge.
As a result, you’re able to charge two Quick Charge compatible devices their max charging speed at the same time. This is great if you and a somebody else have a Quick Charge compatible device as you both can charge your smartphones at their max power at the same time.
Or you can potentially charge a Quick Charge phone and a tablet at the same time and have them both charge very quickly.
Max Output of Power
The max Output of power that this USB charging station has is plenty as its 60W of power and that translates over to 12 Amps.
As a result, if you were using each of the ports and the max output of 12A is being reached, each of the ports would be able to Output a charging speed of 5V/2.0A. That is really good even though you won’t be able to use any of the ports at their max power each of the 6 devices that you’re charging at the same time would charge rather quickly.
Also, the great thing is thing is that you can use the max power of four of the standard ports at the same time. You can also use the max power of two Quick Charge ports and two standard ports at the same time too. Overall, there’s plenty of power to go around for lots of devices charging at once with this charger.
The charging speed of each of the two Quick Charge 3.0 Ports: 3.6-6.5V/3.0A | 6.5-9V/2.0A | 9-12V/1.5A.
