Power Delivery wall chargers are one of the most commonly used chargers at this point, and that’s because of the number of devices that are compatible with PD charging. Most of the newer portable devices are now using USB-C ports for connectivity and charging, so brands are jumping into selling their own PD chargers as they’re so useful because you can potentially use the same charger for charging all of your devices if not most.
This Cirtek 100W Power Delivery wall charger is a bit of a rare product in the space of USB-C charging, as there are still only a few 100W ones. Not only that, but this Cirtek charger also has four ports, while most PD wall chargers with such a high power output are only using a single port. Let’s see just how reliable this Cirtek charger is.
This Cirtek wall charger basically has everything you need for power delivery charging and fast charging via a USB-A port. USB-C 1 is the most powerful port on the charger and the go-to port you want to use to charge laptops, while USB-C 2 is the second most powerful port and is best for fast charging tablets and smartphones.
The two USB-A ports at the bottom are two of the same ports, and they both use Quick Charge. Charging power from the ports on this wall charger changes depending on how many devices you’re charging. If you’re charging only a single device with USB-C 1, then you’re able to receive the full 100W.
Charging two devices simultaneously via USB-C 1 and USB-C 2 charging power is split, with USB-C 1 outputting 65W and USB-C 2 outputting 30W. A 30W charging speed is still enough to charge some USB-C laptops on the market, but it’s better to use USB-C 1 as it’s more powerful. In our tests, the USB-C 1 could charge a Lenovo Flex 5 at its max speed charging speed, while USB-C 2 could only slow charge it.
Charging three devices at the same time lower USB-C 1 to 45W, still enough charging power to charge a Lenovo Flex 5 laptop, and the single USB-A port that you’re using can fast charge an Android smartphone. In our tests, we were able to charge a Flex 5 laptop, Surface Go tablet, and a Note 9 at the same time.
Charging four devices simultaneously splits charging power between the two USB-A ports, so you can’t fast charge via the USB-A ports at all.

Size and Weight:
The charger is rather small considering the charging power it’s able to deliver. It has a length/width of 3.1 inches and a thickness of 1 inch. The charger weighs 7.1 ounces. So it does have a bit of weight to it, but other than that, you can easily take this charger anywhere. It also has a foldable plug that stays out of your way when you’re not using it.
All the ports are on the same side, and when you plug the wall charger into an outlet, a blue power light turns on to show that it’s ready to use.
Structure and Material:
The charger has a good build, just as most other wall chargers on the market. It’s made of plastic; the foldable plug is strong and really the only part that you really have to worry about breaking.

The charger does get warm when you’re charging for a long duration, but that can be said about any wall charger, as heat is always generated no matter what type of charger you’re using. This one does not have excess heat, and that’s pretty good considering its 100W power output if you’re charging only a single device.
With its wide array of dynamic charging power output, such as being able to output 100W, 65W, 45W, or 30W via its USB-C Power Delivery ports, you can charge most USB-C chargeable laptops at their max speed. The flaw with this charger is that it doesn’t come with a USB-C to USB-C cable.
Charging power is the best part of this wall charger, with it being able to deliver 100W, the max output of Power Delivery. You can charge multiple devices, too, but that will lower charging power from USB-C 1, the most powerful port on the Cirtek wall charger.
The charger is small and portable, and that rather surprising considering it has four ports with a 100W max power output. It uses a foldable plug that makes portability easier.
The charger does get warm during charging, but not piping hot, of course. This is normal, especially for a wall charger that can output 100W.
This Cirtek wall charger is one of the most reliable PD wall charges you can own because it has different ranges of charging power that you can use all the way up to 100W; you can also charge multiple devices, but it does lower charging power for USB-C 1.
