expired Shintaro Multi Device AC 5 Port Wall Charger 80 W USB-C QC 3.0 $35.63 + Delivery @ Harris Technology

730

This popular 80w multi port charger deal is back.

I guess it was previously advertised for $39 + delivery, now back for sale at $35.63.

Can't vouch for quality as I have not used it. Previous deal has expired before i made my decision. Anyway just bought one, will see.

Looks their amazon store still sells for $64 + $10 delivery

      It's been years since I've heard Harris technology mentioned. I didn't even know they still operated.

        I used to love HT for high-end stuff back 10 years ago. They stocked almost everything I wanted in tech and you could walk into the store and see all the boxes, read the them and salivate.

        That HT is long gone. HT Group is a different beast.

    It looks same as the one from Kogan. I bought for $59 and have been quite happy with thay.

    I have some usb hdd adapter from shintaro and it's properly trash. The good thing with these random china brands is every product will have random quality! $35 for an 80W charger is super cheap. I'm quite tempted to roll the dice!

    hm I paid a bit more for the Choetech 72W which has some weight to it and has worked solidly for the past year with my MBP15" and other devices.

    They said they'd give me a code to share on ozbargain once new stock arrives

      The issue for me with this one is the A ports don't support QC3. Otherwise a good option.

    •  

      Nice one. The type C PD max output on this one is 60W which is good for $59.99, and will be a great buy with a decent discount code.

      • +1 vote

        I bought it for $40, which the code usually brings it down to.

        Will be posting the code once I get it from Choetech

      That only puts out 45W on the Type C port. This Shintaro one does 60W.

      I'm personally not a fan of completely random no brands directly from China. They have no accountability, so are happy to ship anything. I'd rather a random oem from a company with some accountability in Australia (eg kogan, shintaro, etc).

        Fair enough! Cancelled the amazon order and ordered one of the above. Cheaper than what I got it for last year at $49.

        I'm still looking for a multi charger which has more than 1 type c ports. It's a bit ridiculous to only have 1 type c output and everything else type A and charging at snail pace at 2.4A.

        • +1 vote

          That is why this Shintaro one is interesting. The Type A ports support QC3.0 so they can charge at up to 18W along with the Type C at 60W, up to a total of 80W. Do keep in mind that not all devices draw full power all the time when charging.

      •  

        This. Plus also the OEM of this Shintaro has actually been IF certified, so probably safer than that one.

    Does the USB-C have the same power as factory charger to charge a MBP?

    Possibly same product. Reviews are concerning:

        When you filter all reviews for 1 star only and ignore all the other reviews, you're going to get something scary looking like this. You can do this with any product if you want to see the outliers.

          If I were going to plug in $3,000 laptop and $1,500 phone then the risk is a concern

            @davemurphy: Every electronic is going to have some failures. A 0% failure rate for anything is unheard of. Including the chargers that came with your laptop. Might not happen to you, but if millions were sold, it's bound to happen to somebody.

            And if a single review of someone's laptop getting blown up means a risk, you pretty much have no useable electronics and will have to live life a caveman.

            What your reviews lack context of is, what is the percentage fail rate? It's impossible to know from sifting the reviews. Most people do not post a review when nothing goes wrong. There is nothing remarkable about a product that works. It is a basic expectation. But when something does go wrong, the likelyhood of that person posting a review is a lot higher. So there is going to be a natural skew towards negativity from the outset.

            And then you have to ignore the fact that 86% of reviews were 5 stars, because that's an inconvenient static if you get scared away by a small number of 1 stars. Because it's technically considered a risk if even a single person experienced failure. It could happen to you. Just as you could win the lottery if you played instead of pocketing that $15 for something sensible.

            Risk assessment is impossible without access to full numbers that you won't have. Without knowing the % chance of failure, and in the face of an average review in the 4.5 range, your risk doesn't amount to any more than self scaremongering. If the reviews were overwhelmingly negative, it would be a more valid concern. All you have is anecdotal evidence. Even if you go into a forum asking if your charger blew up or not and every single person whose charger blew up answered your poll, and you count up all the hits, you still don't have accurate % fail rate because you don't know how many did not blow up or how many units they sold. The more units you have sold, the more failures you would expect. So I would think Apple have had more failed iPhones than there are total LeEco phones sold. That doesn't mean iPhones are unreliable. It means they sold a shit ton of iPhones and you only wanted to know whose iphone died on them.

              @lostn: mate, 20% is a high failure rate, rather than 1%, i wona see 99% or 1000 positive reveiwes for ever 1 or 2 bad ones, your just taking the psssss

              • +1 vote

                @T1OOO: Where did you get the 20% failure rate figure from?

              • +1 vote

                @T1OOO: As I've said, you don't know the fail rate unless the manufacturer reveals those statistics and they rarely do.

                i wona see 99% or 1000 positive reveiwes for ever 1 or 2 bad ones, your just taking the psssss

                The other thing you don't seem to understand is that a negative review does not mean product failure. Most of the time it's negative because they didn't like the product, or it didn't do the job they expected it to do, or has annoyances of their own but are working as intended.

                Failure means it doesn't work as intended. e.g. it won't turn on anymore.

                If something does a shit job, but is otherwise working the way it was designed to, that is not a failure. That's just bad design.

    I've got one of the Kogan ones and really like it. Charges my USB-C laptop quickly and handy to only have one charging device on my desk.

    Still at $39 which is a lot less than I paid for the Kogan one so purchased another for travelling. Thanks OP.

      Which laptop?

      • +1 vote

        Dell Inspiron 5289 2in1. Also charges a Dell Latitude 7300 2in1. Both come with USB-C chargers which are about $80 from Dell so this is perfect for the office desk.

        These are both ultra laptops. Doubt it has the balls to run a 15" full size laptop.

    just received mine,

    working with my 15" MBP touch.

    Also comes with a short Type-C to Type-C cable and a USB-A to various DC barrel adapters for different laptops and a tiny stand, nice!

      Got mine last Friday but didn't get around to trying it out until today, it's little more bulkier than i thought but with the laptop charging and USB PD 60w the extra bulk is justified as a all in one charger.

      Tried charging a HP laptop which worked a treat with the supplied USB-A to suitable DC barrel cable/adapter.

      Very good kit for the $35.63 + postage price which i noticed it went up to $39 and now $82.21 thanks OP and PeteM for the $10 off code.
