Review: Mosche 3-In 1 Power Bank

There are a lot of options that we have to charge our electronics. Car chargers are for when we’re driving, USB wall chargers are useful for stationary power and also when we want to charge many devices at once. Power banks are one of the best charging electronics though because portable power means that you can charge your devices anywhere, but the other two technologies aren’t there.

In this case, this Mosche power bank is a 3 In 1 charger. It acts as a Car, Wall and power bank charger at once and it might just be the most useful charging electronic on the market. Let’s see why.

Power

Power Capacity:

The power capacity of the power bank is only 2,600mAh, it’s not a very high power capacity at all. With that said, the goal of this charger wasn’t to provide the highest power capacity, the purpose is to be as useful as possible.

A power capacity of 2,600mAh is going to charge most smartphones at least one time and most likely a little less than a full charge because power is lost during charging. We admit that it’s not a lot of power, but it’s enough to get smartphones powered up to where they need to be.

(You Need 400 More Power Capacity)
Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge2,600mAh3,600mAh0mAh
0.7 of a Charge

(You would need 1,000mAh more power capacity)

The main aspect lies within all 3 of the charging abilities of the charger, since having a power capacity means that it’s a portable charger.

Output Charging:

There are 3 ways to use this charger. It can be used as a Car charger, USB wall charger, and a power bank.

Charging Speeds

Charging works the same way with all 3 of the charging ways. There are two charging ports on the power bank, and each of them are able to Output of 5V/1.5A and the Max Output of the charger is 5V/2.1A. So it doesn’t have the greatest of charging speeds, because if you’re charging 2 devices at once, then each one will be able to get 1 Amp of charging speed.

However, the main point of this power bank is just how well you can use it. I say this because this is the universal charger, as you can take with you anywhere and have the ability to charge your smartphone anywhere. Take a look at the charging options below.

Power Bank:

Just like any other power bank, you don’t have to plug it into anywhere as it already has a power capacity and you can plug your devices into the USB ports to have portable charging.

USB Wall Charger:

The power bank has a Built-in Adapter that you simply plug into an AC Outlets and it can be used as a wall charger.

Car Charger:

There’s a car charger port that’s also built into the power bank, all you have to do is just plug it into your car’s V12 outlet and it’ll be ready for charging.

Input Charging:

Not only is the USB wall charger and Car charger option used to charge your devices, but it’s also used to recharge the power bank. The Mosche power bank is able to recharge within 3-4 hours. With that said, just remember that recharging the power bank is only for the power bank portion and that you can still use the Wall and Car charger options without a power capacity.

Design

Size and Weight:

This is the 2nd part of where the power bank shines the most. Since it’s so small and lightweight that this 3 in 1 charger can be taken anywhere.

The Mosche power bank has a length of 3.1 inches, a width of 2.7 inches and a thickness of 0.9 inches. The weight of the power bank is 0.9 ounces. So it’s very portable and can be taken anywhere. In fact, if you do get this power bank, then it’s best to take it anywhere you go because it’s just that small and useful.

Functional Components:

On one side of the power bank is where there are the 2 USB ports and they’re separated by 4 Blue LED power capacity indicators. The power button is in the center of the power bank.

On the two side is where you can find the Car charger and AC Adapter. Both of them are retractable into the power bank and when done so, the power bank just becomes a block and that makes it very portable since there aren’t any protruding pieces.

Build

Structure and Material:

The entire Mosche power bank is made of plastic, but the structure is still quite solid. We have our doubts that something this small and useful could have a good build quality, but our doubts were false because the AC adapter and Car charger port are both built-in very well into the charger.

Tech:

The Mosche power bank does have a CE and RoHS certifications, and that basically means it fits the basics of both safety tech and the material that it’s using. Thankfully, even with the many ways that it can be used, there aren’t any heating problems and that can mostly be attributed to a low Max Output, which is a smart call for a device that has 3 charging ways.

Reliability

It has a very low power capacity and quite the slow charging speeds. With that said, those are not the major points of the charger.

What does dictate its reliability is that you can use this power bank in nearly every charging situation and it’ll get the job done. Portable power is just one facet. It’s going to reliable in two other major ways that you can find use in for everyday situations.

Summary:

Power:

The power capacity is enough to charge most smartphones at least once. Charging isn’t the fastest but you can use this power bank not only for portable power but also for Car and Wall charging needs too.

Design:

It’s very small, and as a result, you can take this 3 in 1 charger wherever you go.

Build:

Although it’s not Rugged power bank and you shouldn’t go dropping it, the built-in components like the car and wall charger parts are placed very well.

Reliability:

One of the most reliable power banks. Sure it might not have the highest power capacity or fastest charging speed but it acts more than just a power bank.

Specs of the Mosche 3-In 1 Power Bank:

  • Capacity:    2,600mAh
  • Output:   Per Port: 5V/1.5A       Max Output: 2.1 Amps
  • Input:     5V/1.0A
  • LED Power Indicators: 4 LED Dotted Power Capacity Indicators
  • Size: 3.1 x 2.7 x 0.9 inches
  • Weight: 0.9 Ounces

Conclusion:

Most the time when a power bank is reliable, we think of ones that have built-in charging cables or high power capacities; don’t get us wrong, though, those kinds of power banks are highly useful, but their purpose is singular.

This Mosche 3 in 1 power bank opens up doors to other charging electronic and that makes it universally useful.

Review: iClever 6 Port Wall Charger with Quick Charge 3.0

Most USB wall chargers that have lots of charging ports, like in the 5 to 6 Port range, have all their charging ports quite close to together. This kind of design is very prevalent with lots of USB wall chargers on the market. However, even though it’s to make wall charger that has lots of charging ports more compact, the closeness of charging ports can result in things looking unorganized when you have lots devices connected to the USB charger.

In this case, this iClever 6 Port Wall charger is designed very differently than most USB wall chargers that also have 6 charging ports because its charging ports have more space in-between them, and even though it’s larger, we think it’s necessary for a better user experience.

Power

Output Charging:

There are 6 USB charging ports in total on the wall charger. 5 of the charging ports use SmartID technology which is another way of saying that 5 of those ports are able to Output 5V/2.4A. The other 1 port uses Quick Charge 3.0 technology that has charging speeds of 3.6/6.5-3A | 6.5/9V-2A | 9/12V-1.5A.

The Max Output of the USB wall charger is 8.4A.

Just How Good is the Charging?

Most standard devices will be able to charge at their max charging speeds with the SmartID charging ports and if you have a Quick Charge compatible smartphone then you should use it with the Quick Charge port. You can charge 3 iPads at the same at their max charging speeds because when you’re charging 3 iPads, that’s 2.4 x 3 and that equals 7.2A which is lower than the Max Output.

If you’re using all the charging ports and you’re using the charger at its Max Output of 8.4A, then each of the charging ports will have a charging speed of 5V/1.4A.

Design

Size and Weight:

Even with having its charging ports further apart than most 6 port wall chargers, the iClever Quick Charge wall charger isn’t too large but is still quite heavy.

It has a length of 3.9 inches, a width of 2.6 inches and a thickness of 1.2 inches. The weight of the charger is 13.6 ounces. It’s very portable if you want to take it for traveling purposes.

Functional Components:

The wall charger’s design is the main part that makes it great. This is because it has a flat surface and the charging ports are at the top of the charger, instead of the side where most USB ports are.

At the bottom is where there are rubber pads so the charger is able to say in one place and not slide or fall over. The charging ports have good spacing to them which makes connecting lots of devices at once an organized thing to do. It uses a power cord that’s 5 feet long that allow you to place it on your computer desk, and once the USB wall charger is connected, there’s a single Blue light that turns on to signal that it’s ready for charging.

Build

Structure and Material:

There’s nothing too special about the structure build quality because it’s just made of plastic; with that said, there are many separate pieces because all that’s used is a top, bottom, and one large center piece to make the wall charger whole.

Tech:

On the tech side, the wall charger does make use of very necessary tech like Current-Control, Short-Circuit, Surge Protections and Temperature control for when charging is being taken to the limits.

Reliability

Even though most wall chargers are generally the same, this one is not. This is because of its design that is able to give a better experience of use. You can more easily access the charging ports because they’re right on top, and things are going to look less hectic when you have lots of devices charging.

Each of the charging ports is able to deliver fast charging because those that own a Quick Charge compatible device can charge their smartphone at max charging speeds because there’s a Quick Charge 3.0 charging port that are compatible to use with both Quick Charge 3.0 and 2.0 devices. The design and power are both very reliable to use.

Summary:

Power:

5 charging ports deliver a 2.4A charging speed and one can accommodate Quick Charge devices.

Design:

A different and better design than most 6 port wall chargers. Since the charging ports are easier to see and use, and the charging ports are spaced quite generously.

Build:

A very well built wall charger that uses few pieces to make itself whole.

Reliability:

It’s a good wall charger for those that want a different experience of using a wall charger if you’ve only owned a wall charger that has charging ports on its side; there aren’t any concerns with its power.

Specs of the iClever 6 Port Wall Charger with Quick Charge 3.0:

  • Output:    Per Port: 5V/2.4A     Max Output: 12 Amps
  • Input: 5 USB Ports = 5V/2.4A     Quick Charge Port: 3.6/6.5-3A | 6.5/9V-2A | 9/12V-1.5A
  • Quick Charge: Yes
  • LED Power Indicator: Yes
  • Size: 3.9 x 2.6 x 1.2 inches
  • Weight: 13.6 ounces

Conclusion:

We really like what iClever has done with this USB Desktop charger, it’s clever. Its flat bottom design and up-facing charging ports make using it different and in most ways better than traditional USB wall chargers.

Review: Anker PowerPort Speed 5 Wall Charger

USB wall chargers can have many different technologies implemented into them which is why they’re one of the most reliable ways to charge our electronics. One of the most prevalent technologies that this wall charger uses is “Smart Charging” and Quick Charge. Most charging electronic companies have their own Smart charging and what that really means is that the charging ports are able to Output a charging speed of 5V/2.4A. Then there’s the Quick Charge technology that’s able to charge Quick Charge compatible devices at their max charging speeds.

This is the Anker PowerPort Speed 5 that brings the two main technologies together into the same charging port. In this case, there’s the Quick Charge 3.0 and PowerIQ charging that go together.

Power

Output Charging:

The PowerPort Speed 5 is separated into 2 parts. There’s the 2 Blue charging port that features Quick Charge 3.0 and PowerIQ charging. Then there’s the normal PowerIQ charging ports.

2 Blue Charging Ports:

The two Blue charging ports feature Quick Charge 3.0 charging that will be able to charge your Quick Charge 3.0 and 2.0 devices at their max charging speeds. The Quick Charge speeds are 3.6V-6.5V / 3A, 6.5V-9V / 2A, 9V-12V / 1.5A.

Also, the Quick Charge port still uses PowerIQ charging and that means you can still use Non-Compatible Quick Charge devices and the charging ports will still output 5V/2.4A charging speeds to those devices.

3 PowerIQ charging ports

The 3 normal charging ports are the ones that don’t feature Quick Charge tech but do use PowerIQ charging and each of these charging ports have a charging Output of 5V/2.4A.

Ultimately, you can use your standard charging devices with any of the charging ports and they’ll be able to charge at their max charging speeds, it’s just that if you have a Quick Charge compatible smartphone, then that should be used with the Quick Charge ports.

The Max Output of the PowerPort Speed 5 is 8 Amps all at once.

Design

Size and Weight:

It’s a small USB wall charger and you can take the PowerPort Speed 5 with you on your travels if you wanted to.

It has a length of 3.9 inches, a width of 2.8 inches and a thickness of 1.1 inches. The weight of the charger is 7.5 ounces.

Functional Components:

The spacing between the charging ports is similar to lots of other wall chargers, take for example the AllMaybe 6 Port wall charger; so if you’re charging 5 devices at once with the PowerPort Speed 5, things can look disorganized.

There’s a 5-foot power cord that comes with the wall charger and that makes it useful to place the wall charger wherever you’d like. Once the wall charger is plugged in, then there’s a Blue Light above the charging ports that turns on to indicate that it’s ready for charging.

Build

Structure and Material:

The PowerPort Speed 5 is made of plastic, but it’s very durable and doesn’t have any weak parts to it. The charging port receptacles hold a charging cable very well and won’t fall out even if you give it a slight tug, which makes using your device while they’re charging a great experience.

Tech:

On the tech side, the PowerPort Speed 5 uses Anker’s Multi Safe Protection to make sure that charging is safe for you and your devices.

Reliability

We think that even though the PowerPort Speed has 2 charging ports that have Quick Charge, that it’s still reliable for everyone to use; Since even the Quick Charge ports have PowerIQ charging and you can use standard charging devices with it. In the past, Anker did have this kind of technology, because the Quick Charge ports would have ONLY Quick Charge and not PowerIQ charging. That changes here.

As a result, this wall charger is reliable for everyone that uses it.

Summary:

Power:

There are 2 charging ports that make use of Quick Charge and PowerIQ charging; the other 3 ports use PowerIQ charging. Overall, the charging power doesn’t hinder no matter what device you’re charging with it.

Design:

It’s a small and lightweight charger that can be portable. The charging ports are quite close to each and that can be a hassle if you’re charging many devices at once.

Build:

It has a strong build and makes use of Anker’s Multi Safe Protection system to make sure that things don’t get heated up and dangerous even when you’re using all the charging ports.

Reliability:

Even though the normal the consensus for a wall charger like this would be that it’s mostly reliable for those that only Quick Charge compatible devices. That’s not so much the case here because even the Non-Quick Charge compatible devices are going to be able to charge at their max charging speeds because the Blue Charging ports have PowerIQ tech.

Specs of the Anker PowerPort Speed 5 Wall Charger:

  • Output:

Blue Charging Ports with Quick Charge:  3.6V-6.5V / 3A, 6.5V-9V / 2A, 9V-12V / 1.5A       AND      5V/2.4A

Power IQ Charging ports: 5V/2.4A

  • Input:
  • Quick Charge: Yes
  • LED Power Indicator: Yes
  • Size: 3.9 x 2.8 x 1.1 inches
  • Weight: 7.5 ounces

Conclusion:

We appreciate what Anker has done not only with the PowerPort Speed 5 but what other of their wall chargers are doing. Which is combining their Smart Charging technology along with Quick Charge tech to ensure that everyone gets their fast charging no matter what port they use.

Review: RAVPower 6 Port USB Wall Charger

USB Wall chargers can have many charging ports, and each of those charging ports should have optimized charging power. That means each of the charging ports should be able to offer at least a Max Standard charging speed of 5V/2.4A because there are lots of devices that are able to charge starting at the 2 Amp range and beyond. Gone are the days of USB wall chargers offering 1 Amp charging speeds. There are still plenty of wall chargers that offer only 5V/1.0A charging speed but those most likely not optimized for the devices that you own. Also, when it comes to recharging power banks, it’s vital to have a USB wall charger that is able to recharge your power bank the fastest.

This is the RAVPower 6-Port Wall charger is not only able to boast in quantity but also in quality.

Power

Output Charging:

There 6 charging ports on the wall charger and that means you charge 6 devices at once. Sure, it’s nice to be able to charge 6 devices at once, but what’s even better is being able to charge those devices at fast charging speeds.

Each of the charging ports is able to Output 5V/2.4A and that great because it’s a Max Standard charging speed that’s going to charge nearly all the devices that you connect to this wall charger at their max charging speeds. However, this RAVPower USB wall charger is not going to be able to charge Quick Charge compatible devices at their max charging speeds simply because this charger does not feature Quick Charge.

With that said, you’ll actually be able to charge 5 iPads at the same time at their max charging speeds because the Max Output of the USB wall charger is 12 Amps all at once; and charging 5 iPads at the same time will reach that limit of 12 Amps. If you charge 6 iPads at once, then each of the iPads will charge at 2 Amps because that would make the Max Output still 12 Amps.

No matter what USB charging device you’re charging, it’ll be able to charge quite quickly with this wall charger whether it has Standard charging or Quick Charge charging. Also, it’s a great wall charger to use if you have a power bank to recharge because most power banks have a recharge rate of 5V/2.0A.

Design

Size and Weight:

It’s the size and weight that you’d expect a 6-Port USB wall charger to have. Although that doesn’t mean much because even though it is larger than other wall chargers, it’s still portable.

The charger has a length of 4 inches, a width of 2.7 inches and a thickness of 1.1 inches. The weight is 6.8 ounces. So it’s actually quite portable if you wanted to take it with you for traveling purposes, but we recommend to separate the Power Cable from the wall charger to make things more organized for traveling.

Functional Components:

All the charging ports are on a single side, however, they’re really close together and that can cause trouble for organizing charging cables for when you’re charging 5-6 devices at once. When you plug the wall charger in, the green light at the top of the charging ports lights up to indicate that it’s ready for charging.

The power cord that the wall charger uses is 1.5 Meters long, which makes it perfect for placing the wall charger onto your desktop table.

Build

Structure and Material:

The wall charger is made of Plastic but it still has a solid build with the most of the charger using only 3 pieces to become whole.

Tech:

When you have the possibility of charging 6 devices at once, then it’s clear that you’re going to need a lot of safety tech features to back-up the capabilities of such a powerful charging device.

In this case, the RAVPower 6 port wall charger has a Multi-Safe Protection system that is able to protect itself from Over-Charging, overheating through Temperature Control, Short-Circuit and Surge Protections to ensure that you and your devices are safe during charging.

Reliability

We think that most 6 Port wall chargers including this one are always going to reliable. Not because they have 6 charging ports, but because what they’re able to do with those 6 charging ports.

With this RAVPower USB charger, you’re not only able to charge 6 devices at once, but you’re also able to charge those devices at very fast charging speeds, and most likely at their max charging rates. The max Output of the charger is quite high and doesn’t put a heavy limit on charging.

Summary:

Power:

Each of the charging ports is able to Output 2.4 Amps and the max Output of 12 Amps at once makes it so you charge lots of device without compromising charging speed.

Design:

It’s about the size that you’d expect a 6 port USB wall charger to be. The charging ports are really close together and that can make it difficult to organize cables when you have lots of devices charging at once.

Build:

It has a strong structure and lots of safety tech features to make sure that charging goes smoothly no matter what you’re charging or how many devices you’re charging.

Reliability:

The amount of charging ports is reliable, but what makes the reliability even better is the power behind them.

Specs of the RAVPower 6 Port USB Wall Charger:

  • Output:    Per Port: 5V/2.4A     Max Output: 12 Amps
  • Input:
  • Quick Charge: No
  • LED Power Indicator: Yes
  • Size: 4 x 2.7 x 1.1 inches
  • Weight: 6.8 ounces

Conclusion:

USB wall chargers are now reaching a new standard where they’re supposed to be powerful. They’re supposed to offer the fast charging out of all the other charging electronics on the market. This is where that standard has been and it’s been done even with having 6 charging ports.

Review: Aukey 10 Port USB Wall Charger

USB wall chargers come in all different shapes and sizes because much like power banks, it depends on what they feature. When a power bank has a higher power capacity it tends to be bigger. The same thing is similar to USB wall chargers but in their case, when there are more charging ports, then the USB charger is larger. USB wall chargers provide a great stable, and fast charging experience because portability isn’t that important because all your devices are simply kept in a single place. With that said, it’s the small aspects of USB chargers that are the most important.

In this case, this Aukey USB charger has 10 charging ports and the power behind them is just as good as the amount of charging ports there are.

Power

Output Charging:

There are 10 USB charging ports on the USB charger and that means that you can charge 10 devices at once. But more importantly, it’s better to know what those 10 charging ports are capable of.

With that said, 8 of the charging ports use Aukey’s AiPower charging and the other 2 charging ports use Quick Charge 3.0 that are able to charge Quick Charge compatible devices at their max charging speeds.

Ai Power Charging Ports:

The Green charging ports on the USB charger are able to Output 5V/2.4A charging speeds each. That means nearly all standard charging devices (Devices that don’t use Quick Charge) are going to be able to charge at their max charging speeds. This means that you can charge iPads at their max charging speeds with each of the AiPower charging ports.

Just how far can you take the max charging for iPads?

Well, the Max Output of the Aukey 10 Port USB charger is 14 Amps all at once. That means you can charge 5 iPads at once and all 5 of that iPad will be able to charge at their max charging speeds; because when you’re charging 5 iPads at once, then the Output of the USB charger is going to be 12 Amps, but adding another iPad will go beyond the Max Output capabilities of the USB charger because then it’d be 14.4A and that ‘s not possible.

So if you’re mainly using this USB charger to charge smartphones because you may be just placing this in the living or dorm room and have people charge their smartphones with the many charging ports that it has. Then each of the smartphones that are charging are going to be able to charge at their max charging speeds.

Quick Charge 3.0 Charging Ports:

Also, the charging speeds aren’t just limited to standard charging devices, it makes use of 2 charging ports that are dedicated to Quick Charge 3.0 charging. This is where the Aukey 10 port USB charger is actually better than the Anker PowerPort 10 because it actually makes use of the fast charging tech.

The charging speed of the Quick Charge ports doesn’t the disappointment because it outputs 3.6-6.5V/3A 6.5V-9V/2A 9V-12V/1.5A and those speeds are able to charge either your Quick Charge 2.0 or 3.0 compatible devices three times faster than regular charging.

Design

Size and Weight:

Along with the many charging ports, comes a larger size to match.

The USB charger block is 6.6 inches in length, it has a width of 3.5 inches and a thickness of 1 inche. Quite a manageable size that can be simply placed on a table and used as a charging hub. We’re quite surprised by the weight of the charger because it weighs 10.4 ounces when normally chargers like these weigh 1 pound at least.

Functional Components:

Instead of how normally USB chargers are designed with their charging ports on the side, this Aukey USB charger has all of its charging ports on top of it. This way there’s a LOT of space between the charging ports and there’s no issue with spacing, which makes organizing your charging cables very easy. The AiPower charging ports are colored Green and the Quick Charge charging ports are colored Orange.

On the side of the USB charger is where the there’s the PowerCord insert and the power switch. It’s very convenient to have the ability to simply switch the power off rather than having to unplug the USB charger. It uses a 3 Foot power cord that is perfect for placing the charging block on a desk for easy access.

When you plug the USB charger into an AC Outlet, there’s small green light that turns on and that makes it useful to see the charger in the dark. Also, there 4 rubber placing under the USB charger that raises the charger from the surface that it’s on as a way to prevent scratching and sliding of the charger.

Build

Structure and Material:

The USB charger is made of plastic and it’s VERY well constructed with the use of just 2 main pieces; the top and bottom piece.

Tech:

When you have the ability to charge 10 devices at once, then there should definitely be the safety tech to back it up. In this case, the USB charger uses safeguards like Current-Control, Over-Charging and Over-Heating Control to ensure that charging is as safe as possible no matter how fast or how many devices you’re charging.

Reliability

If you think that you’re going to need a USB charger that is able to charge 10 devices at once or at least close to that number, then this USB charger is very useful. However, there’s also the Anker PowerPort 10 that has very similar features but actually, in some ways, the Aukey 10 Port USB charger is better.

This is because there’s the Quick Charge 3.0 charging ports that those with Quick Charge 3.0 compatible devices can use, and the charging port design is far better as there’s more space between the charging ports for better organization.

Summary:

Power:

Power is not an issue because you can potentially charge 10 devices at once and each of the charging ports is able to Output either a Max Standard charging speed of 2.4A or Quick Charge speeds. That Max Output of 14 Amps ensures that you receive a lot of power even when you’re charging multiple devices at once.

Design:

It has a very good design because all the charging ports are on top of the charger and that provides lots of spacing with them. There’s a switch to turn it On and Off

Build:

An absolutely solid build that that only uses 2 main pieces and safety tech that ensures that charging is always safe.

Reliability:

This USB charger is very reliable for either charging 1 or 10 devices at once. Not only that, it’s the power that is reliable too.

Specs of the Aukey 10 Port USB Wall Charger:

  • Output:

AiPower (Green Charging Ports): 5V/2.4A

Quick Charge 3.0 Port: 3.6-6.5V/3A 6.5V-9V/2A 9V-12V/1.5A

  • Input:
  • Quick Charge: Yes
  • LED Power Indicator: Yes
  • Size: 6.6 x 3.5 x 1 inches
  • Weight: 10.4 ounces

Conclusion:

USB chargers are very useful when you want to charge many devices at once. This Aukey charger does a great job at providing an optimal charging experience with its 10 charging ports and the Max Output limit of 14A isn’t really a limit because it would take 5 iPads to reach that kind of limit. Even charging 5 iPads at their max charging speeds at once is already impressive in itself.

Review: Anear 60W 6 Port Desktop USB Charging Hub

When it comes to USB wall chargers, you shouldn’t go wrong with what you want to get because USB wall chargers supposed to provide the fastest charging out of all the charging electronics on the market. The main reason why you should focus on the quality of your wall charger is because you’re charging your device in a very sedentary manner and the last thing you need is for them to stay in that phase of simply being held down by a wire. Also, the next important thing is just how many devices you can charge at once.

Both of those aspects are things that you should look into and look into them deeply especially if you’re going to purchase something like this Anear 6 Port wall charger.

Power

Output Charging:

The Anear wall charger has 6 charging ports as you may have noticed from the image above and each of those charging ports is able to Output a Max Standard charging speed of 5V/2.4A. The USB wall charger does not have Quick Charge and so it will not be able to charge your Quick Charge compatible devices at their max charging speeds.

With that said, a charging speed of 2.4 Amps is still very fast and it’ll be able to charge most USB charging device very quickly and very well at their max charging speeds. This is true for Apple products like the iPhone and also true for the iPad because the iPad has a Max charging speed of 5V/2.4A.

In fact, since the Anear USB Desktop charging HUB has a Max Output of 12 Amps, so you charge 5 iPads at the same time and all 5 those iPads will be able to charge at their max charging speeds. If you’re charging 6 iPads at the same time, then all of them will be charging at 5V/2.0A.

You won’t be disappointed by the charging power that it has to offer because even a charging speed of 2 Amp per device is really good and if you’re charging 6 devices at once that receive that kind of power, that’s simply amazing.

Design

Size and Weight:

It has very similar size and weight characteristics that the Anker PowerPort 6  and the AllMaybe 6 Port wall charger has, so there aren’t any surprises here. It weighs 12.3 ounces.

Overall, even though it has 6 charging port, you can very well use this wall charger for traveling as long as you keep the power cord and the wall charger block itself separately.

Functional Components:

The charging ports have some space between them to keep them quite organized. There’s a lightning symbol that’s next to the charging ports and it lights up Blue when you plug the wall charger into an AC Outlet; also the wall charger uses a 5 Foot power cord that uses 2 prongs, so it can be used with all AC outlets.

It comes with a stand that allows the Anear wall charger to stand upright and that way it’s easier to use when you put it on your computer desk.

Build

Structure and Material:

The Anear USB wall charger is made of plastic and that all it really has to attribute to its physical build. Although we don’t think its physical build matters nearly as much as its tech one because what you should be worried the most about is how it handles being able to charge 6 devices at once or lower.

Tech:

It uses an array of safety protection systems that are able to keep you and your devices safe during charging. This is because Anear uses Multi-Safe Protection system that makes uses of Temperature Control, Short-Circuit Protection, and Surge control.

They’ve made sure to have as many certifications as possible to make sure that they’re providing the safest possible USB charging with CE, FCC, RoHS, PSE and CCC certifications. However, they do not have a UL certification.

Reliability

If you want a USB wall charger that can charge many devices at the same time and be able to charge that device quite quickly then this Anear USB charger is perfect.

The output power of 2.4 Amp per port and the Max Output of 12 Amps puts the limit to the sky because even when you’re using the full power of charger throughout each of its charging ports, each port will still manage 2 Amps.

Summary:

Power:

Max standard charging of 5V/2.4A through each of its charging ports and a Max Output of 12A provides lots of charging power to even tablets.

Design:

Same kinds of design like most 6 port wall chargers.

Build:

The physical build is good but what really takes the cake is the amount of Tech safety features that it uses to keep charging stable even when you’re pushing the wall charger to its limits.

Reliability:

We highly recommend getting this wall charger if you want your family to have a single powerful charging point in the living room where all of you can charge your devices.

Specs of the Anear 60W 6 Port Desktop USB Charging Hub:

Review: Anker 60W 10-Port USB Wall Charger PowerPort 10

Some USB wall chargers have just a single charging port, some wall chargers have 5 ports and then there’s variant of what they actually offer with their charging ports. Some charging ports only offer 1 Amp charging while some push it into the Quick Charge range. Ultimately, USB wall chargers can be versatile for what they offer, and even though they’re not exactly a portable power source, you want a wall charger that is going to provide the best charging quality; since being stationary and charging is already a nuisance, you want it to be fast and reliable charging and being able to charge many devices at once.

Well, here it is. This is the Anker Powerport 10 that has 10 USB Output charging port. Yes, you read that right, this wall charger has 10 charging ports and you can see that in the image above. Let’s see just how this 10 port wall charger is able to function and just how much power you can get from these 10 ports.

Power

Output Charging:

There is no USB-C charging ports and there are no Quick Charge ports, so those with those kinds of compatible devices aren’t going to be getting their max charging speeds.

With that said, for everything else, this 10 port wall charger is very powerful and this is because all of 10 charging ports are able to Output 5V/2.4A. That’s a Max standard charging rate out of each charging ports. You’ll be able to charge all of the standard charging devices at their max charging speeds until you hit the Max Output limit.

So yes, there’s a Max Output limit for the wall charger and it’s able to Output 12 Amps all at once. This means that you can charge 5 iPads at the same time and all of them will be charging their max charging speed of 2.4 Amps. Since 2.4 x 5 is equal to 12 Amps. If you’re charging 5 iPads and a few more devices too, then the charging speed will be split up between the charging ports to make sure that the wall charger is only at its Max Output of 12 Amps.

However, let’s stay that you’re charging 10 devices in all and the PowerPort 10 is maxing out. Each port will be able to Output 5V/1.2A only because then the Max Output of 12 Amps will have been reached. So ultimately, you’re not going to want to charge 10 devices at once if they’re pushing the wall charger to its max power, because if you do then the charging speed for each port will be very slow.

With that said, the wall charger is still very powerful and most of the time your devices are going to be able to charge at their max charging speeds. The fact that you can charge 10 devices at once is still very impressive. You can even charge a Macbook, but it’s best to do that while it’s either turned off or in Sleep Mode.

Design

Size and Weight:

Of course with the Quantity and power of 10 charging ports, also comes the size and weight of that power.

It has a length of 4.4 inches, a width of 2.7 inches and a thickness of 1.1 inches. It’s also a heavy USB wall charger because it weighs 1.8 pounds. With all that said, it’s still a portable wall charger if you really want to take it with you for traveling purposes. We know it’s large and heavy but Anker really knows how to make their products in such a way that every centimeter is small enough so that it fits into even the tightest of places.

For the most, though, it’s going to be used as a stationary charging hub that many people can use at the same.

Functional Components:

On the functional side of things, the wall charger is very easy to use. It uses a Power Cord that is 5 foot long, and once that’s plugged in, the wall charger is not yet on. To turn on the wall charger, there’s a switch on the back of the wall charger that’s used to turn it off and on. This kind of design feature is a must for something that has 10 charging ports because it provides a lot more safety.

The use of the power cord allows you to place it on your desk have all of your charging devices near you.

Build

Structure and Material:

The structure and material of the USB wall charger are absolutely solid. Sure, the wall charger is made of plastic and that’s not a very strong material but all of the pieces are placed in such way that makes it all very strong. The wall charger is separated into 3 main pieces with the main centerpiece, and two side panels on its front and back side.

Nothing is loose and everything strong.

Tech:

With a USB wall charger that has 10 charging ports, of course, it needs to have lots of strength with its build.

This is why the Powerport 10 makes use of Anker’s Multi-Safe Protection system that uses Surge Protection, Temperature Control and a bunch of other charging safety features to make sure that even when you’re pushing the wall charger to its limits, charging is still very safe for you and your devices.

Reliability

Yes, it’s very reliable, and we’re not even going to say that it’s not reliable for those that have Quick Charge or USB-C charging the device because each of the ports is still able to provide a Max standard charging rate of 2.4 Amps. The max output of 12 Amps is able to provide lots of power even when you’re charging lots of devices at the same time.

Sure, charging 10 devices at the same time ca possibly charge each device at only 1.2 Amps but that’s still charging 10 devices at once from a single device! Overall, the Powerport 10 is a highly optimized wall charger that uses lots of power and charging ports with very few compromises.

Summary:

Power:

The amount of 10 charging ports is mostly just the beginning because the power behind the 10 charging is more what matter since each of them can offer a max Standard charging speed of 5V/2.4A.

Design:

It’s not that small and definitely not the lightest weight but if you really did want to travel with it, you can. Just separate the power cord from the wall charger and the wall charger itself just becomes a rectangular block.

Build:

It’s solidly built wall charger and even though it’s made of plastic, it holds strong. It makes use of lots of safety tech since it has Anker’s Multi Safe Protection system.

Reliability:

With the ability to not only charge 10 devices at once but also to charge many devices at the same time at quite fast charging speed. This USB wall charger is basically the best wall charger ever.

Specs of the Anker 60W 10-Port USB Wall Charger PowerPort 10:

  • Output:  Per Port: 5V/2.4A    Max Output: 12 Amps
  • Input:
  • Quick Charge: No
  • LED Power Indicator: No
  • Size: 4.4 x 2.7 x 1.1 inches
  • Weight: 1.8 Pounds

Conclusion:

Not many will need it, not many will find the need to charge as many as 10 devices at once and that’s okay. But for those that need the fulfilled, the Powerport 10 wall charger is a perfect for all uses. All of its charging ports are very powerful by providing 2.4 Amps of power, the Max Output of 12 Amps is not limiting at all.

Review: Poweradd 5-Port USB Wall Charger with USB-C and QC 3.0

USB wall chargers are the basis of charging electronics and this is mostly because they must be relied on for many other charging electronics. Power banks may be portable powering devices, but after they run out of power capacity they have to be recharged using a USB wall charger. The same goes even for Wireless chargers, and even though there isn’t a wire going into your smartphones, the Qi wireless charger must have a charging cable going into it that’s plugged into a USB wall charger.

Overall, USB wall chargers are vital for the charging technology circle as they play vital roles into other charging electronics functioning properly.

This USB wall charger is wall charger that takes advantage of some very important and powerful charging technologies that are now slowly growing.

Power

Output Charging:      USB-C: 5V/3.0A    |     3 USB Ports: 5V/2.4A    |      Quick Charge 3.0:  3.6-6.5V/3.0A    –   6.5-9V/2.0A    –    9-12V/1.5A

The most important aspects of this Poweradd USB wall charger is that it uses a bunch of fast charging tech that is able to accommodate nearly every way of charging for devices that can use the tech. Let’s go through them all.

3 USB Ports  – 5V/2.4A

The 3 USB ports in the middle of the wall charger are able to Output a Max standard charging speed of 5V/2.4A each. This means that you can charge all your standard charging devices, which are basically a device that doesn’t use USB-C or Quick Charge, at their max charging speeds. This is very useful for not only smartphones but VERY useful for charging tablets at their max speeds like a tablet; since tablets like iPads have a max charging speed of 2.4 Amps.

Even if you want to charge your Quick Charge and USB-C compatible device with these Standard Output ports, there’s really no negatives as the 2.4 Amp charging speed is basically the max charging speed before getting into Quick Charge territory and it should still be fast enough to charge those device still quite fast.

Overall, using these 3 ports can provide a perfect recharge speed not only for smartphones, and tablets but also for devices like power banks. Since most power banks have a recharge rate of 2 Amps or higher, you can very well charge 3 power banks at the same time at their max charging speeds.

Quick Charge 3.0 Port:

The Quick Charge port is able to accommodate those devices that are compatible with Quick Charge tech and when done so you’re able to receive blazing fast charging. This is because Quick Charge speeds are up to 3 Amps with increased Voltage of up to 6.5 Volts. Even when Amperage charging goes down, the Voltage increases and this means that you’re charging for Quick Charge compatible smartphones is able to stay more constant. It’s with this port that you can very well charge your smartphones that are compatible with either Quick Charge 2.0 and 3.0 to a power capacity of 60% in about just 30 Minutes.

USB-C:

Lastly, there’s the USB-C Output port that can be used with smartphones and other devices that use USB-C for charging. This port must be used with a USB-C to USB-C charging cable for it to actually be used. It’s with this port that you can charge your USB-C charging devices at their max charging speeds, or you can use the Quick Charge port for max charging as well if your smartphones are compatible with Quick Charge.

The Type-C charging ports is able to Output 5V/3.0A, so it’s not enough to charge MacBooks at their max charging speeds but it’s still enough to accommodate a USB-C device to charge very quickly.

Overall Output Charging:

So the max Output of the USB wall charger is 8 Amps and this means even if you’re pushing all the charging ports to their limits, the max charging speed for each of the ports is going to be 5V/1.6A. This isn’t that bad in terms of how the charging speeds of 5 devices are. with that said, if you want the fast possible charging for the device that you’re charging, then it’s best to know what the max charging speed of each of the devices you’re charging is.

This is mainly to ensure that you’re charging your devices at the fastest possible charging speed, and this is absolutely vital for when you’re using the USB-C and Quick Charge 3.0 port, since those charging ports offer the fastest charging speeds, and you can don’t want your Quick Charge or USB-C compatible device to charge 5X times slower than it should.

The Max Output of the wall charger is pretty good, it’s just that you’re going to need to limit charging for a certain amount of devices.

Design

Size and Weight:

It’s a very small wall charger that is perfect for traveling as its dimensions are short and the weight is really light.

The Poweradd USB wall charger has a length and width of 3.1 inches, and a thickness of 0.78 inches. So its can easily just fit into a backpack, purse or any bag for that matter. Weight won’t be an issue as the wall charger weighs only 5.7 ounces.

It’s perfect for traveling, taking to the office, or library.

Functional Components:

There’s not much to say about the functional side of things since the USB wall charger simply has all of its charging ports on a single vertical side. It doesn’t use any built-in plug pins and instead it just uses a power cord that’s about 5 feet long and this allows you to conveniently place it onto a desk and keep the devices that you’re charging close to you.

The wall charger has a single LED light on top of it that turns on when the wall charger is plugged in.

Build

Structure and Material:

It’s made of plastic and it holds quite strong with just 3 pieces holding it together with the center piece and 2 large side panels. Other than that, there’s not much to say, but the wall charger is built well enough for traveling purposes.

Tech:

Of course, what would a powerful multi-port USB wall charger be without its safety tech? The wall charger has a multi-safe protection system that is able to keep charging smooth no matter how many devices you’re charging at the same time.

Reliability

It’s really reliable, and with that said, we feel that this USB wall charger really means for those that either own USB-C or Quick Charge compatible device; it’s even better if you’re using both because then you can take advantage of both of those fast charging options.

We say this because if you’re just buying the wall charger to just use the Normal USB ports, then all you have are 2 Ports that are completely useless to you. Then, in that case, it’s better to search for a USB wall charger that is more universal like this RAVPower 4 port wall charger that has all of its standard USB charging ports at Max standard charging rate, and no usage of special charging tech.

We do think it’s reliable USB wall charger, but we think that it’s the MOST reliable for those that can use the 2 main fast charging technologies.

Summary:

Power:

Even though it does have a power cap that can result in all of the USB ports being limited to just 1.6 Amps each, the charging speeds of each of the ports are very fast. The 3 standard charging ports are able to Output 5V/2.4A and that’s the max standard charging speed. The other 2 ports can provide blazing fast charging for the devices that are compatible with them like USB-C and Quick Charge compatible smartphones.

Design:

It’s small and really light, it’s those qualities that make it perfect for traveling. The usage of a power cord is completely understandable as it provides better versatility for placing the wall charger to where you want it and having your charging devices close by.

Build:

The build is nothing special but it holds well and has a Multi-Protection safety system in place to keep charging smooth.

Reliability:

For the most part, this Poweradd USB wall charger is highly reliable but it’s much MORE reliable for those that can take advantage of the Quick Charge and USB-C port.

Specs of the Poweradd 5-Port USB Charger Desktop Charging Station:

  • Output:  USB-C: 5V/3.0A    |     3 USB Ports: 5V/2.4A    |      Quick Charge 3.0:  3.6-6.5V/3.0A    –   6.5-9V/2.0A    –    9-12V/1.5A
  • Input:
  • Quick Charge: Yes
  • LED Power Indicator: Yes
  • Size: 3.1 x 3.1 x 0.78 inches
  • Weight: 5.7 ounces

Conclusion:

We’re now in an era where USB wall chargers, just like power banks, are able to make use different charging technologies. So now it’s gotten to the point that you can purchase wall charger based on your special charging needs. If you want a USB wall charger with a few max standard charging ports, along with USB-C and Quick Charge ports, now you can. This is because this Poweradd wall charger is able to provide that.

Review: Poweradd 40W/8A 5-Port USB Wall Charger

In a power bank’s case when the portable charger has many charging ports, it’s expected that some of the charging ports are going to be offering slower charging speeds than the other ones, and ultimately a short Output ceiling will be hit. Then there’s the other side of the spectrum with USB wall chargers. The usual case with USB wall chargers is that they’re expected to stay powerful through their charging speeds no matter how many ports they have and no matter how many devices are charging at the same time.

This is the PowerAdd 5-Port USB wall charger and it’s able to give lots of charging power. However, let’s see if it’s able to stay powerful when things get heated.

Power

Output Charging:      Per Port: 5V/2.4A     Max Output: 8 Amps

So to start with, the wall charger has 5 charging ports, and that means that you can charge 5 devices at the same time. Each of the charging ports is capable of Outputting a Max standard charging speed of 5V/2.4A; so it’s basically the charging speed before Quick Charge speeds.

The max output of the wall charger is 8 Amps, and that means once the max output of the wall charger is reached, then each of the charging ports will lower their charging speed so they can all total the max Output capabilities.

As an example, if you’re pushing the wall charger to its limits by connecting 5 iPads all at once to charge, then each of the charging ports will only be outputting 5V/1.6A and that’s because 1.6 times 5 equals 8 Amps in total. With that said, let’s say that you wanted to charge multiple iPads at the same time at their max charging speeds. You can only connect 3 iPads at once because then the max output will be only 7.2 Amps. Adding another will reduce the charging speeds of the ports.

Charging smartphones, on the other hand, can be done however you want and even if you’re pushing the wall charger to its limits, a charging speed of 1.6 Amps per port isn’t that bad for charging smartphones; as some smartphones have that much as their max charging speed.

Design

Size and Weight:

For something that has a 5 port and is this big, this wall charger has to use a power cord. The wall charger itself isn’t that large at all with its length being 3.9 inches, a width of 2.4 inches, and a thickness of 1 inch. It weighs 5.6 ounces. The power cord that the wall charger uses is about 5 foot long.

Overall, there’s nothing difficult about traveling with this wall charger as you can either have the power cord wrapped around the wall charger itself or simply having the power cord and the wall charging block separately.

Functional Components:

On the functional side, the wall charger is designed pretty well, for the most part, expect for just a few flaws.

Let’s just state the good first. The good thing is that the charging ports are placed a little apart from each other that good if you want to unplug and plug charging cables in while there are other charging cables connected to the wall charger. It also makes it better for the organization. The use of the power cord allows you to place it on a desk and keep all your devices that are charging with the PowerAdd plus really close.

On the other hand, the PowerAdd’s general oval shape doesn’t make it easy to stand up straight and there’s no LED light to indicate that the wall charger is either ready to charge or actually charging.

Build

Structure and Material:

The building side, the PowerAdd 5-port wall charger is made of plastic and it does a great job at keeping itself together. There’s just the center and 2 side pieces that make the wall charger whole.

The outer casing of the wall charger is made of fire-resistant material and basically what that means is that the plastic is most likely coded with resin so it’s resistant to fire.

Tech:

On the tech side, for wall chargers like these, the most important thing is the usage of proper of safety tech and the usage of right material on the outside of the wall charger.

The safety tech this charger includes is Over-charging, Over-Voltage, Surge, Short-Circuit, and Over-temperature protection. It’s with these technologies that make charging 5 devices at once extremely safe.

Reliability

Charging 5 devices at once is already reliable enough, then there’s the case of whether you want to charge 5 devices at once at their fastest charging speeds.

In the PowerAdd’s case, this wall charger is capable of quite a few great feats. One of them being able to charge 3 iPads at the same time at their max charging speeds. If you want to mainly use this wall charger to charge smartphones and other devices that are charged using USB, then this wall charger can most likely deliver.

The only case of when we think this wall charger can’t be reliable is if you expect faster charging technologies like Quick Charge and or USB-C. Other than that, it does a fine job even when it’s being pushed to its limits.

Summary:

Power:

Charging power isn’t much of a problem unless you were expecting a wall charger that is able to charge 5 iPads all at once at their max charging speeds. The 5V/2.4A charging speed per port is great and the Max Output of 8A isn’t too limiting.

Design:

It’s a small wall charger that can be taken for traveling purposes regardless of the power cord, it’s still really portable and light. We’re thankful that the charging ports have some spacing between them. It would have been nice to have a LED light to show when the wall charger was on or when charging was happening.

Build:

It has a strong build in regards to its structure and material being made of fire-resistant material and a wide range of safety technologies that are able to keep charging safely.

Reliability:

For the most part, it’s a reliable wall charger and this goes for all of its aspects and the only time we think that it won’t be reliable is for those that own Quick Charge and USB-C charging devices that want to charge their devices at max charging speeds. In that case, take a look at our wall charger reviews and choose what wall chargers fit your needs the best.

Specs of the Poweradd 40W/8A 5-Port USB Wall Charger:

  • Output:     Possible Per Port – 5V/2.4A       Max Output – 8A
  • Input:
  • Quick Charge:  No
  • LED Power Indicator: No
  • Size: 3.9 x 2.4 x 1 inches
  • Weight: 5.6 ounces

Conclusion:

The PowerAdd 5-Port wall charger follows the right steps that a USB-wall charger is supposed to follow. In that, it makes use of full charging power per port and a high enough max output that can charge many devices at once at their max charging speeds.

3 Best Ways to Choose the Best USB Wall Chargers

Just like many other charging electronics, the USB Wall charger is the most used kind of product when it comes to charging not only our smartphones but a bunch of other devices; Such as Bluetooth headsets, controllers, Laptops and much more. There are many USB Wall chargers on the market. Some wall chargers may look premium and aesthetic to look at but the tech behind them is weak. Some wall chargers are dangerous because they may have many charging outputs but they don’t have the safety tech to keep you or your devices safe. Some wall chargers are simply obsolete pertaining to their size and tech.

Charger Harbor is here to let you know what makes the best wall charger the best choice for you to get. We’ve created ways for you to find what makes a USB wall chargers a quality charging product so you’re satisfied every time you use your wall charger. Let’s get started on what to look for when purchasing a wall charger.

#1: Amount of Charging Ports / Charging speed Per Port

Current wall chargers are becoming a more multi-port product only. That means wall chargers usually have two or charging ports to them. So the first thing you’re going to need to know is how many ports do you want your wall charger to have. If you think that you may only need a single port wall charger, then that may not be the best idea because you may need to charge multiple devices in the future and if you’re searching for a wall charger that has a single port, it’s most likely going to be a Quick Charge wall charger. That’s because a single port wall charger does not give too much usability other than charging a single device with it, which is why many One port wall chargers take advantage of Quick Charge technologies.

This is why we recommend for those that get a wall charger, you should usually start with a 2 port wall charger and work your way up from there but if you absolutely only need a 1-port wall charger then get a Quick Charge one; They’re low in price and deliver the fastest charge possible even for non-Quick Charge compatible devices.

2 Port wall chargers are the sweet Spot of wall charging

On from the one port range, there is a wide range of charging possibilities that open up with every charging port that a wall charger has. Starting at the two port wall charger category is perfect because this is where many wall chargers are at their most powerful and most portable. A 2-port wall charger should have either have a maximum charging Output of 5V/2.4A or a minimum charging output of 5V/2.0A. Gone are the days of 2-port wall chargers that have a charging output of 5V/1A; That kind of charging speed is simply very slow at charging a modern device, especially for tablets.

On from 2 ports lies greater charging possibilities.

If your needs take you beyond the 2 port wall charging category then you most likely have an idea of how many devices you’d like to set on charge at any given time or you simply want many ports so all your cables are ready to be used. 3-Port and 4-Port wall chargers are where the max charging speeds of wall chargers at 5V/2.4A charging speed tends to stay the same if you’re looking for a wall charger that is able to provide an optimal charging speed for all ports.

Once you get into the higher 5-port, 6-Port and even 10-port wall chargers, the output tends to go down because the Amperage current that is going out of the wall charger generates too much heat; As a result, the Amperage must be lowered per port if/when the wall charger has many charging ports.

Where to get these Wall Chargers?

So how do you get wall chargers that are in the port ranges that we mentioned and at fast charging speeds? Simple, you must get your wall chargers from online. We’re absolutely serious when we say that wall chargers that are sold in retail stores do not hold the same quality standards that you’re able to find online. Especially if we’re talking about charging speed.

The Interconnectedness of Wall Chargers

Overall, getting a powerful and well-ported wall charger is important for your overall charging needs. Wall chargers are nearly relied upon by every other charging electronic. Power banks have to be recharged through a Micro-USB input that is connected to a wall charger. Wireless chargers still have to be connected to a wall charger to function and charge a smartphone. Tablets can charge faster when there is a higher Amp Output. This is why it’s vital to get a wall charger that is capable of fast charging speeds, so you’re able to recharge a power bank faster, increase the charging speed of a Wireless chargers and charge devices like iPads and smartphones faster.

Always remember to look at the Output of the Wall charger before purchasing.

Output charging speeds:

5V/1.0A – Slow: Wall chargers with 1 Amp charging speeds are very slow because many devices today can charge at higher Amperage speeds. You’re basically settling for a slow charging experience with 1 Amp and that goes for an all your charging needs.

5V/2.0A – Medium: 2 Amps of charging speed is faster and a more commonly used Amperage that is just fast enough to charge devices quickly. However, it won’t be pushing any charging limits, it’s a highly relied on charging speed.

5V/2.4A – Max Standard Charging Speed: The most used and most trusted charging speed that will charge nearly any device that uses a USB cable to be charged at full potential. It’s with 2.4 Amps is a device able to choose what’s the most amount of Amperage it should accept and charge at the fastest possible speed. Recharging power banks, and using Wireless chargers will provide the optimum charging experience.

5V/3.0A – Quick Charge / USB Type-C: Special charging technology like Quick Charge will charge compatible Quick Charge devices at 3 Amps speed and non-compatible devices are provided with a possible output of 2.4 Amps. The best thing about owning a wall charger that uses Quick Charge is that you can depend on it to give fast charging even when you don’t have a Quick Charge compatible device.

Type-C cables are also implemented within Wall chargers for a device that uses the USB Type-C cable for charging. A Type-C to Type-C cable can be used on wall chargers that feature a Type-C input so the device can take advantage of the fastest possible charging speed of 3 Amps.

#2: Safety Tech

Safety Tech with wall chargers is an absolute must. Safety charging tech allows you to have absolute confidence with the wall charger that you’re using because they are able to provide tech that’s going to control the entire charging process when it’s happening; As a result, charging is able to go as smooth as possible.

This is a major thing to look out for with USB wall chargers that have lots of charging ports because the more devices that you have connected to a wall charger, the more current it’s outputting and the higher chance that the charger will generate more heat and cause damage to your device or to the wall charger itself.

Consider these safety tech features when you’re searching for a wall charger to purchase:

Output / Input Current Control: Amperage within chargers are the most powerful force within a charger. It’s the energy that actually charges your device and it must be controlled because if there are too many Amps being sent to your device, then your device will get damaged. A wall charger should have an Amp Current controller to make sure that the Amp current being sent out is always stable.

Voltage Regulation: Voltage is the energy that regulates the Amp current. If there’s not enough Voltage for the Amperage, then the Amperage could potentially lose control and cause damage to the wall charger itself or your devices.

Over Heat Protection: Heat is a very bad thing when it comes to charging in general. In this case, wall chargers need to have the ability to avoid generating too much by changing Voltage and Amp current. This way the generation of heat is stabilized if you’re within a warm climate and as a result, the Amp current may go down. Sure, you will be getting slower charging speed but it’s to keep the wall charger and your devices safe.

Short Circuit Protection: Avoiding a Short-Circuit is a something that should be standard on every charger. Regardless of how low quality it is. A Short-Circuit can do very severe damage because a current is being sent out without being regulated.

All of these safety tech features should be present with all wall chargers because they provide the necessary technology that will keep you worry free. Even with wall chargers that are 10-ports, these safety features are able to allow you to connect 10 devices, charge them efficiently and keep the 10-port wall charger and your devices safe from harm’s way. You should not have to worry about what’s going to happen if you plug in “Too Much” devices within a wall charger because a wall charger should already be built for what you’re going to use it for.

#3: Design & Size

Designs of a charger are important for the wall charger, it may not be an aspect that’s nearly as important but a USB wall charger should have a good design and a size that generally makes sense. These days, they’re becoming more compact, they’re more minimalistic and are very easy to travel with no matter how many charging ports they have. Some wall chargers even have retractable pins that make the wall charger very portable because when you place the plug pins within the wall charger, the charger simply becomes a cube without any outward facing obstructions.

Although we do warn you that some wall chargers with retractable plugs tend to be lower quality than others. There are some cases that the wall charger may sag down or the plug pins are placed weakly within the wall charger and as a result, the plug pins fall out.

Here are some main Design aspects that are the best when it comes to USB Wall chargers:

Charging Ports are clearly visible and labeled

Charging ports on a wall charger are what the wall charger is all about. You should be able to see the charging ports and be able to use them quickly. Vertical placement of charging ports is the best practice because it provides the most optimal room for ports. Labels on charging ports is another important aspect; Such as pointing out that a port is 5V/2.0A or features smart charging tech. Quick Charge ports on wall charger should be labeled with the Quick Charge logo or at least colored a distinctive color.

It’s with these design choices that a Wall charger will be the most straightforward to use and easy to use.

The Wall charger has a LED power light

Knowing when your devices are charging is a great way to enhance the charging experience. This is not available on many wall chargers and that’s OKAY. Although LED charging lights that indicate when Normal charging is taking place and when Quick Charge charging is taking place is good to have. There are even wall chargers that have LED charging lights that turn off when your device is fully charged and the charging itself stops as well.

This design choice is minimally used, and simply is a plus to a wall charger.

There are round corners on the wall charger

Products that have sharp edges tend to be less friendly to carry, take up more space and more prone to taking damage. With round edges, a wall charger is able to be more versatile because it takes up less space and if it falls, it’s the shock damage from a fall will be less severe because round edges are able to dissipate damage better.

Doesn’t Take up other Outlet Spaces

Taking up another outlet can be very frustrating because you may want to use the outlet next the wall charger but you can’t because the wall charger is covering the outlet next to it. Even the most efficient kind of wall chargers do this; They take up the space of an outlet either when they’re on a wall outlet or a Surge Protector. If possible, you should get a wall charger that takes advantage of its vertical shape and doesn’t block other wall chargers.
