Pros

  • The USB-C Power Delivery Charging is 60W, which is double than the average 30W that most other Power Delivery wall chargers have
  • You can use the max power of the Power Delivery port and the USB-A Port section at the same time

One of the fastest rising new standards of connection and charging is USB-C. Most, if not all new Andriod smartphones are starting to use USB-C. However, it doesn’t just stop there as there are quite a lot of tablets that are using USB-C for charging and there are even laptops that are now using USB-C, too.

What does this all mean? Well, it means that USB-C is able to offer a universal level of charging for our devices and that means you can charge your laptop and smartphone with the same charger in some cases. While in the past or even currently with laptops you would have to use a power charging brick to charge your laptops. Now though, you can use a USB wall charger or a portable charger to charge a laptop.

We’re here to review a charger that uses Power Delivery and that would be this Necteck 4-port wall charger. It uses Power Delivery as well as USB-A ports. The main reason that we’re reviewing this wall charger is that of its charging power and it’s definitely one that you might consider getting if you’re searching for a Power Delivery wall charger that outputs a lot of charging power.

Power

Output Charging:

Charging power with Necteck wall charger is very good if you want a lot our of Power Delivery Charging.

USB-C Port

The USB-C port on this wall charger is the main part because it uses 60W of Power Delivery charging. 60W of charging power is basically double than what most other Power Delivery wall chargers have to offer on the market. As most chargers that do have Power Delivery output 30W. So if you’re charging a Power Delivery compatible laptop such as a MacBook Pro that is USB-C compatible, then this will charge it at a faster rate as those MacBook models are able to charge at faster speeds.

Of course, the charging from this port is also enough for charging Power Delivery compatible smartphones like the Google Pixel 2 at its max charging speed. The iPhone X and iPhone 8 are also able to take advantage of Power Delivery charging speeds. Just make sure that you use a USB-C to Lightning charging cable to charge either of those iPhone with the USB-C port.

USB-C Power Delivery tablets are also able to charge at their max charging speed with this Power Delivery port.

USB-A Ports

There are a total of three USB-A ports on this charger, but this is a rather weak part of the charger and are really only meant for charging other devices that really don’t care about charging fast.

As each of the USB-A ports on this wall charger has a charging output of 5V/2.4A, which is great. At the same time, the max output of the USB-A portion of this charger is 2.4A. So if you’re charging multiple devices at once with the USB-A ports, it will split the max power and cause slower charging for the devices that are charging with the USB-A ports.

Max Output:

The max output of this charger is 72W, but that doesn’t change charging power for either section of the wall charger. As the 60W of charging power is reserved for the USB-C Power Delivery port. While the 12W of charging is available only for the three USB-A ports.

Design

Size and Weight:

The size of this wall charger is small. With its length of 3.6 inches, a width of 2.7 inches, and a thickness of 1 inches. The weight of this charger is 15 Ounces. Not really a large wall charger, but what mainly makes it seem large is it’s use of a power cord.

Functional Components:

Using this charger station is quite simple. As all you have to do is just plug the power cord into the back of the wall charger and then it into an AC outlet. Then you’re ready to use it.

One thing that is missing is any sort of LED light to show that the wall charger is plugged in and ready to use.

Build

Structure and Material:

The structure and material of this charger are quite good, not really on the level of Anker, RAVPower or Aukey, the top dogs within the charging electronic space. That said, it holds up with the use of the charging ports.

Tech:

If you’re using the full potential of the Power Delivery, then the charger is going to get a little warm, as there’s quite a good chunk of power that’s being outputted,

Reliability

This Necteck wall charger is going to be most reliable if you’re going to make use of the Power Delivery. If you’re simply getting this wall charger because of its 3 USB-A ports then steer clear as the USB-A ports are quite weak when used all at once, and it’s better to go with just a plain 3-port wall charger.

Summary:

Power:

The charging power from the Power Delivery port on this charger is very good as it’s 60W of charging power, double than the average 30W that most other PD wall chargers tend to have.

Design:

This is an easy wall charger to use, it would have been nice to have an LED light to show that the wall charger is on.

Build:

The build is quite good structurally. The charger does get warm if you’re heavily using the Power Delivery charging.

Reliability:

It’s a very reliable charger when it comes to Power Deliver charging of 60W, not so much with its USB-A ports, as they don’t output a lot of power altogether.
