Output Charging

The Tenergy wall charger has a single USB port that uses Quick Charge 2.0. The Amp output for this charger is 3.0A for Quick Charge compatible devices and 2.4A for standard devices that are not compatible with Quick Charge tech. It’s a great wall charger that has the power to charge a single device at the fastest possible speed. Since it’s only one port, there’s not much to say about its power. It gives the most power that it can with the USB port that provides you with the latest charging technology.

Design

With just one port, the Tenergy wall charger has a very objective design just like other wall chargers within its class. The shape of the charger is a rectangular cube that has curved corners which saves as much outward part stick out from it. The plugs on the wall charger are not retractable but even so, they’re placed in a very direct manner that allows you to easily connect it into an outlet. This means that the wall charger won’t be blocking other outlets when you connect it to a wall outlet or a Surge Protector.

Functional Components:

The wall charger has a LED light indicator to not only show when charging is taking place, but it also indicates what kind of charging is taking place. When a Quick Charge device is being charged, the LED light on the wall charger becomes green and lets you know that you’re getting Quick Charge blazing fast speeds. If you’re charging a device that isn’t Quick Charge compatible then the light becomes blue.

The USB charging port is placed within an indentation of the wall charger. It’s a good design choice because it’s easier to place your charger into the port since the indentation is a pathway to lead into the charging port. We found it easier to place a USB charging port into the Tenergy wall charger than a wall charger that has ports placed on a leveled surface.

For the size and user experience, the wall charger is great if you want to charge a single device and keep clutter to a minimum. The wall charge is advertised to be a travel sized, and although that may be true, it would be an ultimate travel charger if the plug pins were retractable.

Build

The build quality of the wall charger is solid. That’s really the only way to describe it because everything about the charger is absolutely stuck together and holds strong rigidity. There’s just one concern that’s just very minor, it’s the split right through the middle of the wall charger. The slit is connected from the right and the left side of the charger. It could have been better to make the charger have a uni-body design; Because if it was used for traveling regularly, then it could become damaged and split.

Although the plug pins aren’t retractable, they are VERY durable. There are no movements of the pins whatsoever, so they’re held in place perfectly. This charger is going to last because of its very objective design of not being fancy and simply made for getting the charging job done.

Reliability

Reliability of the charger is exceptional. The power of the charger is there by default because of its Quick Charge technology. You’re always going to get the fastest charge. The size of the wall charger is small because it was designed to be a one port wall charge. It can be taken for travel purposes and it takes very little amount of space if you want to plug it into an outlet. Build quality is stable and although that slit through the middle of the charger has us a little worried, it’s nothing major that would ruin the wall charger.

It’ll the get the job done, as long as you’re willing to rely on it.

Summary:

Power:

If you want the most charging power for a single device that you’re going to charge, then look no further. If you have a Quick Charge compatible device, you’re going to have 3.0A blazing fast charging speeds. Even if you don’t have a Quick Charge compatible device, that’s alright because you’ll be getting 2.4A max standard charging speed. There’s no way to lose when it comes to power with this powerful wall charger.

Design:

The design of the wall charger is small, so it doesn’t take up space on other outlets. It’s also a great traveling wall charger, but to make it, even more, travel-oriented wall charger, a retractable plug would give it a better name as a true traveling charger.

Build:

The build of the device is objective, which is why the charger does so great with its build quality. It’s connected with a slit through the middle of the charger, just a small concern of the slit being loosened and the charger falling apart. A uni-body design of the charger would have been better. The plug holds a lot of solidarity and isn’t going to lose a plug pin very easily.

Reliability:

If you’re searching for a wall charger that is able to provide ample power for a single device, and you’re able to take it nearly anywhere, then it can do you justice. However, if you’re searching for a wall charger that has a bunch of ports so you can charge multiple devices or other people can charge their devices at the same time, then you should look for wall charger with more ports.

Conclusion:

The Tenergy wall charger is a single port wall charger that gives you, the single user of the wall charger, the most possible power. It’s got a design that can easily be taken anywhere and a rigidity that is very stable so it doesn’t matter how you pull it out of an outlet. A good singular wall charger? We say, yes.
