Most of the time when it comes to car chargers, many people don’t put much focus on the type of charging tech that it features. That’s definitely a mistake during these times and that’s because there are quite a few devices on the market that compatible with fast charging tech and this isn’t just true for smartphones, but also for laptops and tablets too. The main charging tech that we’re talking about in this case, is Power Delivery.

Power Delivery is the more universal type of fast charging technology that is being used with many smartphones and also laptops on the market. The ultimate goal is to basically be able to use the same charger to charge your smartphone and laptop.

In this review, we’re going to be taking a look at this MaxBoost Power Delivery car charger that also features Quick Charge. So let’s see if the Power Delivery charging power makes this car charger worth purchasing.

Power

Output Charging:

When it comes to Power Delivery charging, the most common charging speed that you’ll find is going to be 30W, but since this is a car charger you would think that it would have less power than that. That’s not the case here at all and instead, the Power Delivery charging speed of this car charger is 45W. This is not too common with Power Delivery car chargers, but we’re definitely glad that there’s much power and that’s because you will have no problems fast charging Power Delivery compatible smartphones such as the Essential Phone, Google Pixel 2, or the iPhone X.

Charging Power Delivery compatible laptops such as the MacBook and also the Dell XPS 13 that actually requires that you use a 45W PD charger will be able to charge quite fast with the USB-C port. Overall, the Power Delivery charging from this MaxBoost car charger is very powerful and useful for a wide range of devices.

The Quick Charge port on this car charger is, of course, able to fast charge Quick Charge compatible smartphones and you can also use it to charge any Non-Quick Charge compatible smartphones too, as the port will simply output a 5V/2.4A charging speed.

To top it all off, the charger makes use of a 63W max output, which means that you can use the power of the two ports at the same time.

Design

Size and Weight:

Just like any other car charger on the market, this MaxBoost car charger is quite small with it having a length of 2.7 inches, and a thickness of 2 inches. So it’s a low-profile charger but on the end with ports, it’s quite a lot larger because of its use of two powerful charging technologies.

Functional Components:

The location where the charging ports are is quite large and there’s a Blue LED light that turns on around the car charger that makes it easier to see the car charger at night.

Build

Structure and Material:

The entirety of the car charger is made of plastic and there are really only two separate parts of the car charger so the build is quite strong.

Tech:

On the tech side, this car charger does tend to get a little warm if you’re using the Power Delivery charging for a long duration, but not if you’re solely using the Quick Charge port. That said, in order to cool-down, the charging speed from the car charger is slowed down.

Reliability

On the reliability side, this MaxBoost car charger is going to be most helpful for those that own a Power Delivery compatible smartphone or larger devices such as laptops that are used with the fast charging tech. It’s a plus if you have a Quick Charge compatible smartphone or if you have a friend or family member that can make use of the USB-A port.

Summary:

Power:

The Power Delivery charging is quite a lot more powerful than most other Power Delivery car chargers with its use of a 45W charging speed.

Design:

The use of a LED light around the charging ports makes it easier to find the car charger and the ports at night.

Build:

The charger does get a lot little warm when you’re using the Power Delivery charging for a long duration of time, but charging speed is slowed down to make the car charger cooldown.

Reliability:
