Shintaro Multi-Port USB Type-C QC3.0 80W Charger $39.95 Delivered @ Harris Technology via Amazon AU

640

This is a really good price for a charger that can do 60W on the Type C port while also putting out 20W worth of power on the other 4 Type-A ports which all support QC 3.0.

It's unique in that it also comes with tips for many regular laptops (14.5V, 16V, 19V, 20V).

It's much cheaper than the Satechi and supports QC on all ports.

It has been previously $35.63+shipping. Shipping to QLD is about $11, so it's quite a fair bit cheaper now at $39.95 delivered.

  • Good find, wonder if there will be any black friday deals…

  • This is a really cool concept

  • been using this for a few months, works great and comes a handy vertical stand

  • Actually you’re not correct. The type A port is where the laptop actually charges from, so it’s unique in the way any of the 4 USB-A ports can actually output 65W…

    Also many of the tips are for older style laptops. Email to shintaro support via their website enquire can get a free tip to suit your laptop.

    • …so it doesnt charge via USB-C? seems silly to have a USBC outlet and not charge via that…only asking because im lookign at getting one as a backup for my MBP 13" 2019

      Hmm? Did I say the old laptop tips connect to the type C port?
      I said the charger is unique in that it comes with non-type-C laptop tips.

      • You said the type A ports output 20W, which isn’t true. I double checked and the USB-C only outputs 60W, whereas the USB-A can do 20V 3.5A so 70W.

        • 20W when the USB-C is using all of the 60W.

          No, this is what I said:

          This is a really good price for a charger that can do 60W on the Type C port while also putting out 20W worth of power on the other 4 Type-A ports which all support QC 3.0.

          i.e. This is an 80W charger. It can output 60W on USB-C while also putting out the remaining 20W worth of power on the Type-A ports.

          If you're not pulling 60W from the Type-C port, you'll be able to draw more from the Type-A ports.

          • @eug: But how many Type-A chargers can pull more than 5V/3A in most circumstances? Almost all of them will use USB C for PD to get more than that much. You can charge faster on Type-A on this device than on USB-C.

            • @ATangk:

              But how many Type-A chargers can pull more than 5V/3A in most circumstances?

              I said "…put out 20W worth of power on the other 4 Type-A ports". i.e. the 20W is shared amongst the 4 ports. It's not just one port pulling 15W, although that is certainly possible with QC3 supporting 9V 2A which is 18W.

              Almost all of them will use USB C for PD to get more than that much.

              No, there are heaps of phones which support QC2 and QC3 over Type-A which can pull even more than 5V 3A worth of power. No USB C needed.

              You can charge faster on Type-A on this device than on USB-C.

              How so? QC3.0 supports up to 18W while the USB-C port on this supports 60W through PD.

              • @eug:

                How so? QC3.0 supports up to 18W while the USB-C port on this supports 60W through PD.

                Because as I said above, this device charges laptops (which arent USB-C) using its own proprietary adapter system, which plugs into the USB Type-A Port. This allows the USB Type-A port to supply up to 20V/3.5A (or 70W), in addition to many other such as 15V, 19V voltages required by laptops. This is what makes the USB Type-A ports so special, and not just a '20W' system.

                • @ATangk: I'm not sure why you seem to be the only one who's misunderstanding my post.

                  • @eug: You seem to be claiming that QC3.0 is the limit that the type A ports can output. I'm telling you its not.

                    • @ATangk: Simple misunderstanding guys. But you're both right.

                      The limit of the type A port is not due to QC3. The limit of the type A port is dependent on the tip you use to charge a laptop. But of course you can't QC3 charge using a laptop tip.

                      OK, now I see where you're coming from. I think you're misreading the original post and subconsciously inserting the word "limit" in.

                      I never said that QC3 is the limit that the type A ports can output. Where did I even mention a limit of any kind?

                      I said that the charger, while supplying 60W on the Type C port, can also, at the same time, supply 20W across the Type A ports.

                      I never said that the Type A ports are limited to 20W. If you're not pulling 60W from the Type C port, then you can certainly draw way more than 20W across the Type A ports.

                      This is what I said:

                      This is a really good price for a charger that can do 60W on the Type C port while also putting out 20W worth of power on the other 4 Type-A ports which all support QC 3.0.

                      Breakdown:
                      - It can do 60W on the Type C port.
                      - While it's supplying 60W on the Type C port, it can also simultaneously supply 20W across the other 4 Type A ports.
                      - The four Type A ports support QC 3.0.

                      That is in contrast to other chargers in the same price range that can only do 45W PD over Type C + 20W across the Type A ports.

    • "Can get free tip" Is that what happened to you when you emailed them, they offered a tip for free, or you asked for a free tip? Do they have a big range of tips to choose from?

      • Actually staff from Harris Tech informed me that Shintaro have more adapter tips, and would likely send one for free. The booklet just says they have more tips and to contact Shintaro for it but from a CS standpoint it seems offering it for free is their go to otherwise the product really isn’t useful. As for the range I don’t know as I just let them know which model I had and they sent the correct tip via express post.

  • Harris Technology, now theres a name i havent heard in years

  • Already got 2 from last deal, really happy with them. Now I’m asking myself if I need another one..

  • Unfortunately no PD so not suitable for the switch.

    • Pretty sure 60W on the Type C port is PD capable

      Unfortunately no PD so not suitable for the switch.

      It definitely supports PD. My laptop works with it.

      • The specification page, linked above, says nothing about USB Power Delivery (PD). People should assume this device has no PD.

        It might charge your laptop, but slower than it otherwise would have.

        • it won’t charge laptops u less it’s PD capable , only PD capably
          chargers can supply the correct voltage upon detection, google PD 2.0 or 3.0 for more info, typical chargers with 5V will not charge any laptops.

          some PD capable chargers will charge as you said slower than normal this is due to the max ampage output of the charger for example 19v @ 5A (~100w) will be faster than a charger that can only do 19v @ 2A (~40w), this charger at 80W will presumably do 4A

          Sometimes webpages don't give complete specs. It definitely supports PD. I just connected my protocol sniffer to it and it supports PD up to 20V.

          I then connected a PD protocol trigger set to 20V and a DC load to the Type C output and set the load to draw 3A (actual draw ~61.5W). I connected another meter and DC load to one of the Type A ports and set it to draw ~15.6W (~5.2V 3A). I left my other protocol trigger at work so couldn't run it in QC mode. Total load was about 77.1W. I ran it for 35 minutes and it ran fine, no issues.

          • @eug: Interested to know what products you're using for this testing?

            • @tbone74: Ahh… I'm now at work and they're all at home. :)
              I can't remember the model numbers but they're by the usual suspects. Ruideng, YZX Studio, meters are Fluke and UNI-T.

  • "Currently Unavailable"….

    It's still available on their website but shipping isn't free.

    Hopefully they increase their Amazon stock!

    • Anyone know what the regular price for this unit is from Amazon and from Harris Technology?

    • Yeah $21.74 shipping for me :(

    • Damn. Looks like sold out from HT or pulled listing. Missed it spending too much time reading reviews lol.

    • Got an email from Harris Technology cancelling my order after ordering two on their site earlier. They offered me a full refund ;)

      "Unfortunately we are unable to provide the Shintaro Multi Device AC 5-port Wall Charger. This item has sold out due to popular demand. At this stage we are not looking at restocking this item."

  • Devastated I missed this, been looking for something exactly like it.

  • Finally a good charger with PD.
    Thanks OP!

  • back in stock

  • Bad deal!

    Because this charger does not comply with the USB Power Delivery (PD) protocol, it is incompatible with many modern devices. Incompatible with iPhone. Incompatible with iPod Pro. Incompatible with Google Pixel phones. Incompatible with Nintendo Switch.

    This is a lousy deal. Plus the vendor was just using it for click bait, as they had minimal stocks of the unit, which all sold out soon after the deal was announced.

      It charges my USB-PD laptop just fine.

    • Can you give some more details, experience or links to information regarding these issues?

    • There are other examples of what look like the same product being sold with different branding. For example, following one doesn't have the PD logo printed on the product but does have it mentioned in the specs.
      https://www.amazon.com.au/Charger-Adapter-MacBook-Spectre-Ch...

      The mbeat Gorilla badges version has it printed on the product and mentioned in the specs.
      https://www.amazon.com.au/mbeat-Gorilla-Portable-5-Port-Char...

      Guessing the Shintaro version does as well, just that it hasn't been documented.

    • Because this charger does not comply with the USB Power Delivery (PD) protocol, it is incompatible with many modern devices.

      It does. I posted some details here.

      The only way a non-proprietary charger like this would do 60W over Type C is via PD.

      Plus the vendor was just using it for click bait, as they had minimal stocks of the unit, which all sold out soon after the deal was announced.

      How do you know how many they sold?

      They've been selling it for months. As I mentioned in the post, they were already selling it way back in August for $35.63+shipping, which looks to range from $11-22. It's only now where the total shipped price dropped to $39.
