A wall charger is a type of charging electronic that you likely already use, as you probably got a wall charger that came with your smartphone. Most of the time the wall chargers that come with smartphones only use a single charging port. That can be a problem if you want to charge more than a single device at a time. Another thing is that wall charger that comes with smartphones that are Quick Charge compatible only have a single port that uses Quick Charge.

That’s why there are wall chargers such as this PowerPort Speed 2 Anker charger that actually uses two Quick Charge ports. It’s not just a wall charger that those with Quick Charge compatible smartphones will find reliable, it’s also good for those that have Non-Compatible Quick Charge phones, too.

Power

Output Charging:

There are two charging ports on this PowerPort Speed 2, just as the name implies. Each of the two ports features Quick Charge, and since the max output fo this charger is 39W, you can actually use the max power of the two ports at the same time. Meaning that you can charge two Quick Charge compatible smartphones, such as a Galaxy S9 and an LG V35 ThinQ, at their max charging speed, at once. So it’s great if you and friends or family have a Quick Charge compatible smartphone.

Also, charging Non-Quick Charge compatible smartphones and other devices such as tablets is also possible with this charger, as each of the ports will simply default to a 5V/2.4A charging speed.

Design

Size and Weight:

The size of nearly any wall charger on the market is going to be quite small and lightweight, and this PowerPort Speed 2 is no different. As this charger has a length of 4.5 inches, a width of 4.3 inches and a thickness of 1.2 inches. The weight of the charger is 6.4 Ounces. So it’s quite a small charger that you’re able to take it anywhere that you want. We will say that it is quite large for a 2-port wall charger, but the reason for that is because of its use of Quick Charge with both of its ports.

Functional Components:

Just like any wall charger, you just plug it into an AC outlet and you’re ready to use. Both of the charging ports are on the same side and each of them is colored Blue. Above the two charging ports is where there’s a LED power indicator light and above the LED light is where there’s a light sensor.

Yes, there’s a light sensor on this wall charger, and basically what it does is that it dims the light once the room you’re in is dark, and if it’s bright in your room, then the light becomes bright so it’s easier to see. This is a way for the LED light to not be a disturbance when you’re trying to sleep and charge your devices at the same time.

One slightly negative part of this charger is that it does not use a retractable AC adapter.

Build

Structure and Material:

The build quality of nearly all Anker products is great and this one PowerPort Speed 2 wall charger is no different. Even though the charger is made of plastic, it holds very well and it has a slightly rough texture to it. Also, we realize that we said, that Non-Retractable AC adapter is basically negative, but at the same time, it’s also a positive as there’s less of a chance of the products breaking from taking them out and retracting them constantly.

Tech:

On the tech side, if you’re charging two Quick Charge compatible smartphones at the same time with this wall charger then you can expect it to get a little warm during charging, as it’s 36W that’s being outputted from such as small form factor device.

If you’re charging two Non-Quick Charge devices then it won’t get warm at all.

Reliability

The PowerPort Speed 2 wall charger is definitely geared for those that own a Quick Charge compatible smartphones and if you know someone else can benefit from the Quick Charge tech as both of the ports use the fast charging tech. At the same time, since the wall charger is also able to output a fast 5V/2.4A standard charging speed, it’s also reliable even if you don’t own a Quick Charge compatible smartphone.

Summary:

Power:

Charging power from this wall charger is great as each of the two ports are able to charge Quick Charge compatible smartphones at their max charging speed.

Design:

The design of this charger is straightforward and it’s quite innovative with its use of a light sensor that adjusts the brightness of the power light depending on how bright it is in your room.

Build:

The build is solid and it can actually be better to not use a retractable AC adapter as there’s less of a chance of it breaking.

Reliability:

This wall charger is mostly meant for Quick Charge compatible smartphone users, but at the same time, you can still make optimum use of this charger with a Non-Quick Charge smartphone.
