Pros

  • Has a 100W max output that you can fully use from a single port, or the 100W output can be split up when charging multiple devices
  • You can possibly charge two laptops at the same time, while still being able to fast charge a phone or tablet
  • The charger is incredibly small for the power it has because it features GaN

Cons

  • Does not come with a cable

At this point, USB-C is the standard for many of the portable devices that we use because if a modern mobile device doesn’t use USB-C and opts for using Micro-USB, then it’s living in the past. We’ve gotten to the point where chargers use multiple USB-C ports, incredibly high wattage outputs, and charging protocols that can charge specific devices faster.

In this review, we’re taking a look at this Hyphen-X 100W charger with four ports and a 100W max output, and since this charger uses dynamic charging, we think this is a good choice if you have multiple devices you want to charge at the same time.

Power

Output Charging:

Charging power is not lacking with his Hyphen-X charger, and that’s because it has a 100W max output, and you can use all of it from a single port or have it shared between multiple ports. Here are two USB-C ports and two USB-A ports on the charger. USB-C 1 and USB-C 2 are the most powerful ports, with USB-C 1 taking priority of power allocation. Suppose you want to use the full 100W of charging power. In that case, you can charge a single device via USB-C 1; with a 100W output, you can charge most USB-C devices, and that includes laptops, tablets, and smartphones; also, don’t worry, you won’t damage your phone by charging it from a 100W USB-C port as the device automatically accepts a certain amount of charging power.

Charging from USB-C 1 and USB-C 2 simultaneously gives you a 65W output from USB-C 1 and a 30W output from USB-C 2. It lets you charge a laptop and simultaneously fast charge a phone or tablet.

Charging four devices simultaneously gives you a 45W output from USB-C 1, 30W from USB-C 2, and the two USB-A ports share a 7.5W output.

Charge rate for Lenovo laptop

In our tests with charging this Hyphen-X 100W wall charger, we charged a Lenovo IdeaPad Flex from USB-C 1, a Samsung Galaxy S20 from USB-C 2, and an LG G7 from USB-A 1.

Super fast charging a Galaxy S20

The Lenovo laptop was able to charge near its max speed of about 30W, even though the charger that comes with the laptop is a 65W charger but charging stats are the same with a 45W port; the Galaxy S20 was able to super fast charge at 25W via USB-C 2 because USB-C 1 and USB-C 2 feature Programmable Power Supply (PPS) charging. Finally, USB-A 1 has an 18W output when charging three devices, so it could fast charge the LG G7.

Design

Size and Weight:

Considering the amount of power that this Hyphen-X charger can output, the size of this charger is tiny. The charger has a length of 2.8 inches, a width of 2.7 inches, and a thickness of 1.1 inches. The weight of the charger is 7 ounces. Along with the foldable plug, this charger is straightforward to be portable with.

Functional Components:

It’s just like using any other wall charger; all you have to do is unfold the plug and then plug the charger into an AC outlet. Once plugged in, a white power light turns on to show that the charger is powered on.

Build

Structure and Material:

The build quality of this charger is excellent, and we can’t find any flaws with how it was built. The foldable plug is robust, and the entire structure of the charger holds well. However, we do want to say that because of the charger’s weight, if you have an old worn-out wall outlet, the charger might sag, but that did not happen in our case.

Tech:

Considering this charger has a 100W output, we thought it would get pretty hot, but the charger only got slightly warm even when we charged three devices simultaneously.

Reliability

Suppose you have at least one USB-C chargeable laptop. In that case, this Hyphen-X wall charger is worth getting because the chances are high that you can also use the USB-C ports to charge your phone as you either have a USB-C Android phone or an iPhone, as you can still charge an iPhone with a USB-C to Lightning cable. The two additional USB-A ports also allow you to charge other devices with a USB-A to whatever connection device you’re charging it with.

Summary:

Power:

Charging power is excellent for charging most USB-C devices, and there’s plenty of ability to use from one port or multiple ports as the charger has a 100W max output.

Design:

The charger is tiny, just a length of 2.7 inches and a thickness of 1 inch; along with a foldable plug, you won’t have any problems being portable with this Hyphen-X wall charger.

Build:

In our tests, this wall charger only ever got a little warm because we were charged three devices simultaneously. Warming up of a charger is entirely normal, though, as heat is continuously generated no matter what charger you’re using.

Reliability:

If you have a USB-C laptop, it’s a great idea to get this charger because you charge your laptop while charging three other devices if you ever need to.
