Pros

  • Can charge all Power Delivery compatible smartphones at their max charging speed
  • Has a dim Blue LED light that makes it easier to see the car charger at night
  • The USB-A port on this car charger features Quick Charge to charge QC compatible devices at their max charging speed, so there are two fast charging technologies on this car charger

Cons

  • The Power Delivery charging is 18W, which is the base of PD that can charge all PD compatible smartphones at their max charging speed but not all Power Delivery compatible laptops can charge with this amount of PD Charging

USB-C Power Delivery is basically becoming the new standard for charging for many types of devices on the market. The main reason for that is because it’s an overall faster way to charge our devices and also for transferring files from one device to another. Many Android smartphones are now using USB-C and there is also plenty of larger portable devices such as laptops that also use USB-C Power Delivery charging.

Since USB-C is the new standard, there are now car chargers that use the charging tech. What’s even more amazing is that there are USB-C car chargers that now use Power Delivery too. This is a very good thing because you’re able to charge compatible Power Delivery devices at or near their max charging speed while you’re driving.

That’s why we’re reviewing this Meagoes dual port car charger with Power Delivery. It uses one USB-C port and the USB-A port, so let’s see if this is one of the best Power Delivery car chargers that you can get.

Power

Output Charging:

Even though this Meagoes car charger does feature Power Delivery, it’s important to look closer to see just how much power it’s able to output. As Power Delivery charging does have certain levels.

USB-C Power Delivery

So the Power Delivery port on this Meagoes car charger has an 18W charging speed. This is still Power Delivery but at the same time, it’s a lower tier of Power Delivery (PD) charging. With this PD charger, you’re able to charge most Power Delivery compatible smartphones at their max charging speed, such as the Google Pixel 2, iPhone X or iPhone 8 and other PD smartphones.

However, when it comes to charging laptops and tablets that use Power Delivery, you’re still able to charge those devices it’s just that they will charge slower. That’s because the most common standard for Power Delivery charging is 30W. Another thing to know is that not all laptops that use USB-C Power Delivery are able to charge with just any Power Delivery charger if it’s not up to its specific powering range.

 

For example, there are some laptops that require 45W of Power Delivery charging. This Meagoes car charger will not be able to charge those devices because of its 18W charging speed. You can charge a USB-C MacBook with this charger, but it won’t charge at its max charging speed, but it will at least charge faster than a standard 5V/3.0A (15W) USB-C port.

USB-A Port:

The one other port on this car charger is the USB-A port, which is more of a standard port since you can use any charging cable with it. Not just a USB-C to USB-C charging cable; or if you’re charging an iPhone X or iPhone 8 with the USB-C port, then you would use a USB-C to Lightning charging cable.

The USB-A port features Quick Charge, so it can charge a Quick Charge compatible smartphone at their max charging speed. However, if you’re charging a non-Quick Charge compatible smartphone with this port, then the port will output 5V/2.4A.

Overall, this car charger actually features two powerful charging technologies.

Design

Size and Weight:

Despite having some powerful charging tech, the size of this car charger is still very small. It has a length of 2.7 inches, a width/thickness of 1 inch. The charger has a weight of 1 Ounce. So the charger doesn’t stick out too much from a 12Volt outlet and overall, it stays very low-profile.

Functional Components:

Both for the charging ports are on the same side of the car charger, and once you plug the car charger into a 12Volt outlet it has a Blue LED light that turns on from inside the car charger. The light illuminates a Blue ring that goes around the car charger.

Comes with a 3-foot USB-C Charging Cable

Build

Structure and Material:

The build quality of this Meagoes car charger isn’t the best on the market and that’s because the front part of the car charger where the charging ports are located is poorly placed. As a result, when you pull the car charger from 12Volt outlet it becomes loose and has a higher chance of breaking. A build quality like that only really matters if you take your car charger out once you’re not using it.

Tech:

On the tech side, if you’re using the Power Delivery charging or Quick Charge alone, then the car charger tends to stay cool and normal. However, if you’re using Quick Charge and Power Delivery at the same time, the charger does tend to get a little warm if you’re charging two devices at once for a long duration.

Reliability

The reliability fo this charger is very high if you own Power Delivery compatible device that you’d like to charge while you’re driving. Another thing is that this charger is also very useful for charging Quick Charge compatible devices.

If you don’t plan on taking advantage of either of those charging technologies then it’s best to go for a more standard car charger.

Summary:

Power:

Charging power form this car charger is pretty good with its use of Power Delivery with the USB-C port and Quick Charge with the USB-A port. However, the Power Delivery charging is 18W, which is quite a bit lower than most other Power Delivery chargers.

Design:

The design of this car charger is quite nice with its use of a Blue LED light that makes it easier to see the car charger at night.

Build:

The build quality could use some improvement with the structure where the ports are so it holds more rigidity.

Reliability:

It’s a very reliable car charger for those that can use the Power Delivery and Quick Charge charging that it features.
