PowerStrips are known to just have AC Outlets and provide power to our appliances.

Usually, one of the outlets that we do use on our Powerstrip is used by a wall charger so we can charge multiple devices at the same time. However, that can sometimes use up an Outlet slot that can otherwise be used for other means such as powering a certain appliance that you have.

This can all change due to many PowerStrips making use of USB charging ports. Take for example this Aukey Powerstrip that not only has 4 AC Outlets but also 4 USB charging ports.

AUKEY PowerStrip 43W/8A USB Charger 8 Outlets


Output Charging:

The PowerStrip has 4 3-prong AC Outlets and the powering capabilities of the AC portion are 1250 Watts of power and that’s enough to power most of the appliances that you use every day.

Also, just to note, that the power limit in terms of Amps is 10 Amps all at once on the AC Outlet side.

USB Charging:

Additionally, the main reason that you should get this Aukey Powerstrip is that it has 4 AiPower charging ports and each of the ports have a 5V/2.4A max charging rate.

So each of the charging ports is able to charge an iPad at its max charging speed, and they will also do a great job at charging most smartphones at their max charging speeds too.

We say “Some smartphones” will charge at their max charging speed because none of the USB charging ports uses Quick Charge and so your Quick Charge compatible smartphones will not be able to charge as fast as possible.

Also, the Max Output of power on the USB side is 4 Amps all at once and we found that to be a little underpowered because in comparison to Anker’s Powerstrip that also has 4 USB charging ports, the max Output of it is 6 Amps all at once.

So if you’re using the full power of USB ports and you’re using 4 charging ports at the same time, then the Output power of each port will be 1 Amp each.

We do like that the Powerstrip has USB charging ports and that each of them is able to output 5V/2.4A but what we don’t like is that charging can become slow when you add on too many devices because there’s not enough max power to go around.

Size and Weight:

Very similar to other regular power strips.

It has a length of 12.8 inches, a width of 2.5 inches and a thickness of 2.4 inches. The weight of the PowerStrip isn’t even a pound because it weighs 12.8 ounces.

Functional Components:

Not too much going on here, but let’s go over what it does have.

The PowerStrip makes use of a switch that can turn it off and on, which makes it very useful when you don’t want to unplug the PowerStrip entirely. At the bottom of the PowerStrip is where there are mounting ports that allow you to place the PowerStrip on walls or the underside of a table.

The power cord that it uses it 5 feet long and it’s a 3-prong AC adapter so just make sure that your house has 3-prong AC Outlets so you can actually use the PowerStrip.

Structure and Material:

The strip is very durable, we think that it can take falls, bumps and have things fall into it and it won’t be damaged.


On the tech side, Aukey has implemented a Multi-Safe Protection system that is able to control excessive Currents, Overheating and Over-Charging too. Also, yes, it does use a Surge Protector too and cuts its power when it overloads.

We realize that the use of USB charging ports basically puts this PowerStrip into a better position than a PowerStrip that doesn’t have built-in USB charging ports. With that said, the Max Output power of the USB charging port section on the PowerStrip isn’t that great.

Sure, each of the charging ports is able to Output 2.4 Amps each, but that doesn’t mean much when you can’t even use 2 charging ports at an output of 2.4A because the Max power is capped at 4 Amps.

So if you’re going to purchase the PowerStrip just be aware of the capabilities and limits that USB charging provides.

AC Outlets are powerful, and we’re really glad that the PowerStrip uses USB charging ports but the max Output should be higher than just 4 Amps.


It has the same size as most normal PowerStrips and we found that it doesn’t even weigh that heavy. It makes use of a switch to turn it off and on that can be very useful to use. It uses mounting bolts at the bottom to place it wherever you’d like.


It’s a very strong strip and that can be said for both the physical and technical build quality.


Even though it does have 4 USB charging ports and basically erases the need for using a separate wall charger, the max power of the USB section simply isn’t that powerful.

Specs of the Aukey PowerStrip with 4 USB Charging Ports:

  • Output:     Possible Per Port – 5V/2.4A       Max Output – 4A
  • Input:
  • Quick Charge: No
  • LED Power Indicator: No
  • Size: 12.8 x 2.5 x 2.4 inches
  • Weight: 12.8 ounces


PowerStrips that have USB charging ports are no doubt becoming more popular because it’s very convenient to have charge ports that are directly on the device that you already use so much.

This Aukey Powerstrip accomplishes just that, and we realize that we may be asking a lot of it but the USB charging could have a better Max output to make that point of the powering more useful.
