While most chargers claim to be 40W - this Tronsmart charger is 54W and can provide greater amps across all USB ports simultaneously to provide faster charging. One port features Quick Charge 2.0 while the others have VoltIQ. Unlike other brands this charger has been Qualcomm certified.

What is Quick Charge 2.0 and VoltIQ?

Tests have shown that a 3500mAh battery can be charged from 0% to 60% in only 30 minutes for any compatible device using Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 technology.

The charger also utilises a technology called VoltIQ that is able to detect the charging protocol used in the device to provide the fastest possible charge (up to 5V/2.4A) without the risk overheating, overcharging and short circuiting etc. This is suitable for other devices that do not support Quick Charge 2.0 (5V/2A, 9V/2A, 12V/1.5A) including the iPad and iPhone.

List of tested QC 2.0 compatible phones can be found here

      I think the Tronsmart QC 3.0 chargers are a better purchase now.

      I have a couple of packs of the cable and not had an issue.

      •  

        I guess only if you have QC 3.0 compatible devices, or plan to get them in the future. For those in the iOS camps, it's irrelevant.

          my phone has qc3 but they can get hot on the charge cycle…… i also have the qc2 charger also and they are fine. I charge overnight on a normAL 2.1A port and its much more gentle on the batteries.

          Future will be USB C so trying to future proof is probably not an issue.

          noce things about this charger is is has a QC port if your phone is dead and you need it in a hurry, but also 2.1A ports so you can gently charge when you have the time e.g. overnight.

      None of my Tronsmart cables lasted more than a few months with some failing in just a matter of weeks.

      Learnt a trick the other day for when micro usb cables become loose and won't charge. The trick is to use a pin to make the two small metal prongs extend back to their proper length. These prongs get stuck in the low position and it causes a loose connection and charging issues.

    I'm still waiting on my order to arrive from the last deal (Posted in Jan). I'll give it a few more weeks to allow for Chinese New Year (Although an order done at the same time from Bangood arrive 2 weeks ago).

    For those that don't like the cables, I'd recommend the Blitzwolf Braided Cables (Micro USB, USB-C or Lightening)

    •  

      Thanks for the heads up. Won't bother with this now.

    •  

      You mean from this? https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/286281

      Mine arrived last week.

    •  

      It can take up to 30 business days to arrive which is standard for free shipping from China. Fortunately my bundles like this one have ~$5 US courier options.

    •  

      Mine arrived 2 weeks ago

      I can't recommend the reversible Blitzwolf micro-usb cables. One of them ended up damaging my friend's S6 microUSB port…

      Other Blitzwolf cables are very good though

      • +1 vote

        Blitzwolf cables seem like great quality initially, but I've had the same problem with a few of them now. The plastic bit around the actual connector (both in USB and micro-USB ends) becomes loose after a while. Not hard to fix with a bit of superglue, but still not a sign of great quality.

        •  

          Actually this was more serious… Blitzwolf made "reversible" micro usb cables with a trapezoid shaped connector… Micro usb cables were never intended to be reversible and Mt friend's phone ended up with a damaged usb port…

          Later banggood put a warning about the blitzwolf cables being incompatible with certain phones on their site

    when i buy from chinese sites, I just expect it to come within 60 days and to my surprise they usually come earlier.

    • +1 vote

      That's really exaggerated. 30 days is max I can bare with. Else don't bother with that shop.

      60 days is like oh did I order that? Then you look at your emails then you know it's two months ago…. Do you still need it? Probably not!?

      •  

        Yep, I agree!

        I'll accept 30 days… but not 30 "business days", which is more like 7 weeks!
        I got duped this time around, but won't make that same mistake again.

    Hurray! Thanks Clear!

    I consider it my communal duty to warn my fellow OzBargainers yet again about the s#!tty quality of these Tronsmart cables.

  • +2 votes

    Sure the cables have a little wiggle room. But they are thick and have never failed me.

  •  

    How do these compare to the blitzwolf that frequents these pages? I bought the blitzwolf and although it's great having a handy all in one usb charger, I can constantly here the electronic noises coming from it. Especially annoying in a bedroom at night. I always make sure I switch it off at the outlet too once I leave home, doesn't seem right but I've never felt the cost vs. return was worth the hassle.

    •  

      I only have the Aukey and the Tronsmart multi-port chargers and they're pretty quiet. The 2 port Blitzwolf QC2/3 charger makes a lot of noise when it has no load, though.

  •  

    Coupon doesn't work for the US plug?

    I've got plenty of spare AU plugs was hoping to get the US plug for travelling

  •  

    These are great! I might have just been lucky, but under full/middle/no load, I can't hear any coil whine without physically placing the charger up to my ear. The cable that comes with the charger (~2m+) seems to have a much better connector than the 5 pack of cables. Wish they'd fix the connectors, they are great cables otherwise!

  •  

    Charger is great. Cables are good when they work, but have a high faliure rate. From the 4 I have used 2 have stopped working. Or only work if the phone is rested on the edge of a table and the cable hangs.

    Teardown and review by a charger enthusiast. Conclusion:

    The usb charger can deliver the rated current, but gets very hot. I do not expect this to be a big problem in real life (It will very seldom be fully loaded). I do not really like the peak noise, it is rather high.
    The missing common mode coil on this high power charger probably means it is transmitting some radio interference.

    Due to the high noise level I do not like this charger, but it will deliver lots of power in a safe way.

    I only buy tronsmart charging cables from geekbuying and blitzwolf from banggood. Never had any issues, maybe you bought duds. Both are tough and well made. Don't bother with the cheapos at kmart, big w or target. Your wasting your money. I also bought tronsmart and blitzwolf 5 port chargers, they are simple the best money wise. I have bought nearly a dozen of each and my friends are raving. Simply the best!

      Same. Tronsmart allowed my Samsung to pull 2amps from generic 2amp power supplies, but my Oppo needs a 4amp draw at 5v for VOOC charging. Oh well!

      •  

        4A at 5V is massive - I wonder why they didn't just use QC2 or similar. Even my Xiaomi Mi4c does 8.5V*1.8A.

    Good charger, had one for a while now but far out, slowest shipping ever. Not sure if they get some backpacker to kyak over with them to Australia from China.

    • +2 votes

      That's generally how free shipping is with China. Spending a few dollars more on couriers is worth it.

      •  

        Are they coming in via sea mail?

        • +1 vote

          Nope they're delivered by air and it takes a while for them to make it through customs and the sorting centres. They also use Auspost once they reach Australia and we all know how slow they are. This usually costs the seller less than $1 and is the reason they offer it for free - it's slow.

    Refugee boat actually

  •  

    Does paying extra for a courier really make any difference to shipping times? I think I read with Aliexpress for example, it makes zero difference.

    •  

      It won't change the processing time but actual transit time will be. A lot of Aliexpress sellers use slower couriers like Aramex that routes through Dubai first or ePacket.

      •  

        Thanks.

        Is there any advantage/disadvantage to a particular payment method? i.e. I'll be using cashrewards, and I usually prefer to use Paypal so overseas companies don't have access to my Visa details. But I remember reading something once that it costs less to pay using USD over AUD… Or is that Amazon!? Anyway, what's the 'best' (cheapest) way to pay, if you get my meaning?

        •  

          GeekBuying don't accept AUD so you'll have to pay in USD.

          Does your Visa have currency conversion fees? If not you'll need to have to setup Paypal to use the Visa conversion rate and that will get you as close to the current exchange rate. By default Paypal will use their own currency conversion and will add a fee.

        •  

          @Clear: When I order from GeekBuying, Aliexpress, etc. using Paypal… the bank statement shows two entries: 1. The amount in USD. 2. An "overseas transaction fee" (by the bank itself). So I'm not sure if I should change it to use the Visa rate!?

        •  

          @GregMonarch: Depends on your card. Some cards like 28 Degrees have no currency conversion fees while others like CBA do.

        •  

          @Clear: Talk about confusing, lol. I rang the bank. They cannot judge which way would be cheaper. BTW, I changed the wording above from "currency conversion fee", to "overseas transaction fee" while you were typing, if that makes a difference.

          The bank told me they charge 3% currency conversion fee. And it says online Paypal is 3.5%.

          When I buy from Aliexpress, I see the purchase amount in USD on the statement. The next line shows an "overseas transaction fee" charged by the bank.

          My Paypal has been set to take money from any Paypal credit first, then from the Visa debit card, then from a bank account. I've just removed the bank account option from Paypal, and changed it to use the bank's currency conversion rate. But maybe doing one or both of these is a mistake!?

          Although Paypal is 0.5% more, I still don't know which is cheaper, and can't see how anyone else can tell that either. Because Paypal and Visa wouldn't be using exactly the same exchange rate. If they were, it's easy - Paypal is 0.5% more. But a worse exchange rate from your bank on that day, could wipe out the 0.5% 'saved'.

          So I can't see how ANYONE can determine which method is cheaper, without buying two of the same item, on the same day, but setting Paypal to use a different conversion rate for each purchase. And even after doing that, the different exchange rates for Paypal/bank could reverse tomorrow. So what is cheaper today, could be more expensive tomorrow.

          Can anyone shed light on this?

        •  

          @GregMonarch: Visa's exchange rate will always be better than Paypal and since Visa have 3% instead of 3.5% they'll be cheaper.

        •  

          @Clear: Thanks for your help with this. That's one problem down. Now, should I be setting Paypal to withdraw money from the Visa, or directly from the bank account?

        •  

          @GregMonarch: Visa. PayPal needs to be set to use the cards rate too.

        •  

          @Clear: Great, thank you.

  •  

    Seems to have ended. And I think I forgot to use the 54ETRONSMART discount when I purchased - was too busy worrying if Cashrewards was going to work and forgot to apply the code I think - argh!

  •  

    Anyone else still waiting for this order to be delivered?
    Ordered on 18th Feb, and very quickly approaching 1 month- even though "Registered Airmail" was the delivery type.

    Not too impressed with Geekbuying right now. Very poor communication.

    • -1 vote

      Free shipping can take up to 30 business days so there is still some waiting time. Tracking should tell you if it's reached Australia or not.

      Poor communication from GeekBuying? What are you expecting them to message you about?

      •  

        Yes, it said 15-30 business days on order confirmation (plus another 2-7 business days for "processing")…. I am well aware that there's more time to wait.

        But over 7 weeks delivery to Australia though via "Registered Airmail" is ridiculous in this day and age. Where's the plane going, via the moon? I can ship a car in a shipping container on a slow ship from China and have it delivered via multiple carriers to my door in that period. I purchased items via Ebay from China recently and they normally arrive in 2-3 weeks tops. Quoting a 7 week window doesn't mean that's acceptable.

        Furthermore, its misleading to quote 2-7 days shipping time on the product page… when this refers to processing time only.
        Quoting 30 business days on the order confirmation is also misleading (people just think 1 month, no problem), but its done because 7 to 8 weeks sounds bad- which it is, and no one would order.

        And since you asked, what I "expect" firstly is updated shipping information in English.
        The tracking number facility spits out results in a foreign language, so I have no idea where the actual item is… which the whole purpose of tracking isn't it?

        With a guess I can only assume that its somewhere China being that the "latest event" date noted was 25/02/17, and is STILL noted as being with China post. Where I don't know, and why no update since the 25th Feb is anyone's guess.

        So, with no communication from the vendor on updated shipping details, and the only information I have is outdated and in a foreign language alluding to the item still being in the originating country, I email the vendor for an update.

        The reply email is in broken English with poor grammar from a "Jennifer" telling me nothing new other than to wait 30 business days and to check my local post office.

        Is that what I should "expect" is it? A brush off copy and paste email with no new information at all?
        No worries, least I know what to expect from Geekbuying in the future… nothing.

        1.7 stars on Product Review is also very telling.

          Because it's free shipping. Since you don't pay for it and it's inexpensive for GeekBuying to ship it takes time. A lot of that time is spent in processing centres and customs between Australia and China. If you had opted for paid shipping then it would arrive much quicker. A shipping container with a car wouldn't be free either.

          This week GeekBuying started rolling out Australia Direct Line in partnership with Australia Post to provide quicker shipping to Australia. It's already free on most products and should prevent longer waiting times with other carriers.

          Furthermore, its misleading to quote 2-7 days shipping time on the product page… when this refers to processing time only.

          That's an understandable mistake. Ships in can be taken as the order arrives in or the order leaves in. I'll mention it to to GeekBuying.

          The tracking number facility spits out results in a foreign language, so I have no idea where the actual item is… which the whole purpose of tracking isn't it?

          Is the tracking website 17track.net? That website is in English and has the option to translate the tracking status.

          The reply email is in broken English with poor grammar from a "Jennifer" telling me nothing new other than to wait 30 business days and to check my local post office.

          China. Unfortunately we can't have perfect English from them. Since it's still within the 30 business day mark it's reasonable for them to tell you to wait.

          1.7 stars on Product Review is also very telling.
          http://www.productreview.com.au/p/geekbuying-com/2.html

          3.0 stars for OzBargain with heaps of negative reviews. People are far more likely to report bad experiences than good. 20 reviews aren't much out of tens of thousands of orders in Australia.
          http://www.productreview.com.au/p/ozbargain.html

        •  

          Just an FYI in regards to the 17track.net website… yes, it offers English translation- but only for the menu items and website options. For the actual result text of the search, it's all foreign and stays like that regardless of 'translation'…. so yes, useless as I said.

          And I don't expect perfect English in an email, but I do expect any queries asked would be addressed/answered and not ignored.

          I appreciate you taking the time to respond here, and I do appreciate the deals you post… so let me be clear that my frustration is not with you, but with GeekBuying. However it doesn't change my opinion of them. I am looking forward to finally receiving my item, but I won't be purchasing anything from them in the future.

        • -1 vote

          @UFO:

          Must be an issue at your end as the translation works for me. There are plenty of other tracking search engines like http://globaltracktrace.ptc.post/gtt.web/ and even English versions for specific carriers.

          Fine by me if you're not shopping here again. If you're not willing to wait the advertised time then there isn't much point.

        •  

          Ok then.

          I think you may be right, there isn't much point by the sound of things.
          And just for the benefit of others, its now 1 month and 1 day since ordering and item is still in China according to tracking information provided.

          Good times.

        •  

          @UFO: Or 20 business days.

    •  

      Ordered same date. Still no item. I have bought a number of items from Geekbuying, and it is still a frustration.
