    Its a bit pricey compared to others, but it has been solid in the time I've had it. Brought it on a couple of overseas trips and no issues.

    I bought this desktop charger about a year ago, it's fantastic, it charges my Dell XPS laptop, but a little Dell notification pops up stating that the charger is under
    powered then it proceeds to charge my laptop almost as fast as my original charger. It's ideal for going overseas, as it can charge the whole families devices.
    So you don't need to bring a laptop charger and iPad charger etc, just one charger does it all!!

      That's because the way this charger quoted on USB-PD is dishonest. 3-20V 3A - as if this thing is USB-PD/PPS, no way. By not listing the actual voltages supported, we don't know which voltages are supported. Your Dell XPS laptop probably cannot find good matching combinations, thus reporting that message. Unless you actually use a meter or a stopwatch to time, a lot of the time, you get the feeling they charge about the same, especially if you plugged the power supply in most of the time (because the fast charging part is at the beginning 0-50%).

      When all ports are in use, the maths doesn't add up. The power rating quoted per port is max only when that port is being used. When all ports are being used, if the max is 75W, you cannot get max power out of every port.

        or may be the DELL is lying? I have DELL XPS 12, it BIOS does not like any third party charger like universal laptop charger I used, that 2 times more Watt. After googling, I found out, DELL put some kind of authentication to detect whether the charger being use is original or not. End up buying another charger from DELL, as the original charger cable start to wear off.

        But for me, that the last DELL laptop I bought, never again.

        • +1 vote

          USB-C/PD has that feature too: e-marking. Manufacturers can enforce it if they want to. It's one thing Dell blocked third party chargers before, but this is not the same.

          I tested a Lenovo laptop with an Apple 61W charger and an Apple 29W charger. When using the 29W charger, it gets that type of warning. People keep thinking USB-C is universal. The reality is that it's not that universal. There are 2 versions of Apple 61W chargers (care to find out why?) and the 29W charger is actually not really following proper USB-IF specs for USB-C/PD (that's why Apple stopped selling it). Not to mention now Samsung throws USB-PD/PPS into the mix (these PDO ones don't look so great now do they?).

          You trust a 3rd party accessory maker with specs where the maths simply doesn't add up over Dell? Honestly, if that Dell laptop or that charger is popular enough, some 3rd party charger maker would be able to figure out a way to trick the BIOS. Those Universal chargers are mostly junk. I bought an Apple original charger more than a year ago at a discounted price, lower than the price of this charger. The RRP for this is more expensive than Apple 61W USB-C charger. I don't see what's so great about it. It over-cramped the ports. Sure, believe that the charger can overload all the way up to 90W, instead of the warning Dell is telling you that the specs is dodgy.

          With 80-85% of multi port chargers reviewed poorly with single QC + 5V ports, you truly expect most of them improved greatly now that they've added USB-C/PD into the mix? Sure, most laptops are very forgiving, but that doesn't mean these are great.

          Based on other similar chargers' specs, my guess is when multi ports are in used, the USB-PD would drop to 45W or lower. That could be why the warning pops up. It's just a guess, wish the maker just lists all the combinations and the power output in each case.

    •  

      Interesting. I have this and run it on a 2018 Dell XPS 13 and don't have that issue.

      I have seen that when I've used a low powered phone grade charger by mistake.

    Hi All, I am new to this type of charging - I have some questions

    1. can you use it to charge multiple devices at the same time? E.g. laptop, phone and camera - or do they have to take turns?
    2. What else is needed - the USB cable from the charger to the laptop/device (any cable or needs to be a specific one)
    3. What is the difference between PD, QC3 and 2.4A USB?

    Thanks in advance!

    • +8 votes
      1. No they can all be charged together. However total output will not exceed 75w. So if the laptop takes 60w then the camera and phone will have to split 15w.

      2. If you have original cables that plug into USB chargers it should work fine. Need a usb-c to usb-c male to male cable for the usb-c charging port.

      3. So there are 2 things that matter - the voltage (V) and current(A), and they multiply to give watt(W). PD allows up to 20V (I think), and this case, 3A, for a total of 60W. This is useful for your laptop or Nintendo switch. The old USB standard is 5V up to 2.4A, which is 12W. QC3 is a faster method that uses the normal USB port but allows up to 18W and uses some other proprietary system to boost the charging of your battery up to 80% ish capacity faster.

      Note that your device must support PD or QC for this faster charging. This won't fry your device just because you plugged in a phone in the PD port. It will just charge as fast as your phone will allow.

      •  

        Thanks @Fiximol and @mathew42

        Do I need a "special" smart USB-C to USB-C cable … or just a cheapo standard one will do the trick?

        I saw all the Baseus cables before but never understood why they are "special" or good … I think it was because the cable controlled the charging?

        •  

          They aren't all the same, but I believe the as long as they are proper usb-c to usb-c they should do at least 20V 3A, so the baseus ones should be fine for charging.

    •  

      This will charge 4 separate devices at varying speeds.

      • PD can be used for laptops and high-end phones.
      • QC3 will support fast charging for most phones and tablets.
      • 2.4A is fairly old now but should charge most phones and tablets.

      For the laptop you will need USB-C to USB-C.

      Personally I would buy one with 5 ports and at least two that support QC3.

      1. The specs say you can but it doesn't add up. The USB-PD port is supposedly 60W max. The way the USB-PD spec quoted is dodgy, you actually want to see all the individual voltages this charger supports. Now, the QC port suppose to support up to 18W. 60+18 = 78. Then, the 2.4A * 5V total for both 2 ports combined (12W) - 1.2A per port basically. If the total is 75W, you do the maths yourself (90W > 75W).
      2. USB-PD requires USB-C/USB-C cable. Certain laptops require proper USB-PD throughout (i.e. Lenovo laptops). QC port runs on USB-A to USB-A/C cables. 2.4A is only achieve-able if the port is coded to support various protocols and it is doubtful you can actually reach 2.4A on most devices. Certain phones are picky on cables so cheap cables will be knocked down to slow charging mode.
      3. USB-PD is the new standard for fast charging though honestly there is so many implementations it is actually messy. QC3 is a cost effective way to fast charge on USB-A for supported Android phones though technically against the official USB spec. 2.4A is the old standard though Apple and Samsung have their own coding.

      I don't like 3rd party USB-PD chargers for laptops. The maths doesn't add up is annoying. The specs are done in a way that is attractive to general public, but if you checked carefully, it is just shrewd marketing.

      Mine arrived today and I'm happy with it as well

      It suited my usecase better as I prefer the flat profile. I plan to place it under my desk when I get to sorting out cable management. QC3.0 x 4 was a big selling point and shouldn't be understated. After looking around pretty extensively I couldn't find one with all QC3.0 ports.

      Not that I have any reason to doubt but will be trying to get the output wattage tested somehow.

      •  

        Yeah I prefer the slim profile too. I put Velcro tabs on the back of it and mount it to my bedside table on the side and take it off and with me and my laptop when I travel. It’s never let me down. Fantastic little unit.

        I haven’t tested the output but it charges my laptop at least just as good as the wall chargerr, seems a bit quicker even. Let me know how you go if you do test it. I’d be willing to bet it just that 80w peak just based on my experience so far :)

    will this charge 2020 macbook pro?

    • -1 vote

      Honestly, if you have a 2020 Macbook Pro, stick with your original charger please.

      Supposedly, the USB-C/PD port could deliver up to 60W (but if multiple ports are used concurrently, the maths is wrong). Problem is, for Macbook Pro's, unlike Dell and Lenovo, MBPs do NOT tell you when the charger is not charging at the proper rate. Remember, one person indicated it showed a warning on his Dell laptop. Typically, a true 60W USB-C charger should be able to power a Dell laptop without that warning.

      Next, you have the question of which cable you want to use. From my limited testing, some of the 3rd party cables can be dodgy. Like I mentioned, the Macbook won't tell you. I tested AmazonBasics USB-IF "certified" cable with an Apple original charger (measured through a meter). On occasions, the cable was not liked by the MBP and MBP wouldn't charge above 5V, yet there is no error on the battery icon. I should really toss that cable to the bin. I haven't touched it for at least a year now.

      If your work truly justify your need for a second charger very often, you should be able to afford that from doing the work. If you just want another charger and plan to use a 3rd party charger more often than the original, then it is just sad.

      •  

        Can you share what you used and how you tested the charger? Curious.

        • +1 vote

          I used a USB-C/USB-C meter. I didn't test the charger (it's original). I tested the cable. The meter would report voltage and current. It also has a graph like mode, though the scale to too small. Supposedly it supports bluetooth to collect data, but didn't bother with it.

          You can see the charging starts at 5V when you plugged the cable in. The laptop, cable and charger then negotiate and quickly ramp up to the applicable voltage. Laptop doesn't charge at max rated power for very long. The battery in the laptop, while capable of being charged at a higher power rating, still cannot be charged like that constantly, it does slow down a lot towards the end, just like a laptop battery.

          From the meter, you can see bad cables have intermittent issues and consistently charges at lower voltage and current.

          If you don't want to spend that much on a meter, you can also get one of those socket with power meter thing (and some of the smart sockets display power usage and can even shows results over time in a graph). My finding is that it is not worth it to even use 3rd party cable. AmazonBasics USB-IF "certified" cables are unreliable. You really expect other 3rd party cables to be much better? If the cables are already dodgy, chargers will be better?

          Years ago, I tried to save some money and bought an international plug for an Apple charger for an overseas family member. That plug part broke badly with a pin stucked half way. It was really embarrassing. I immediately bought the world travel kit. Not worth is to mess around with electricity.

          I recently found out that the USB-C meter I have doesn't work on Lenovo laptops. Seems like Lenovo laptop checks for certain things alone the USB-C/PD circuit or enforced e-marking checks throughout perhaps. Not sure about Dell.

          •  

            @netsurfer: Thank you.

            I do agree with you quality of cables affect any kind of optimal set up. Its just a pretty deep rabbit hole to go down into.

            Would you have a link of of the "socket with power meter thing" that I could look into further?

      •  

        Isn't the purpose of USB-PD for the charger and the device being charged to negotiate a mutually agreeable rate? There shouldn't be a situation where the charger is trying to charge at a higher rate then the MacBook can support. It may charge slower, but that shouldn't be an issue.

        I've used various USB-C with PD chargers with my MacBook Pro with no issues.

        If you really wanted to know what rate the MacBook is charging at, then coconutBattery would show you. https://www.coconut-flavour.com/coconutbattery/

        •  

          It doesn't provide enough details as it is more for the battery. A USB-C meter allows you to get the voltage and the current in more detail. Some meter can also read USB e-marking details. The meter can also probe charger capability and modes it support without the need to connect to a laptop. For example, if your phone is close to fully charged, it might operate at 5V low current or 9V low current mode. How do you tell what modes that charger supports? Drain the whole mobile phone battery and re-test? That's not efficient.

      •  

        You are not wrong but your experience is well it did not work for me so lets just buy the official charger.

        First thing is you need a good C-C cable. Belkin one's are solid, Blitzwolf are also good. There are tons which are used by people here.

        I don't know the input required by Macbook but I have this charger and a solid cable and it chargers my laptop fine.

      @Autonomic

      There are other more expensive options as well.

    •  

      Be very careful with those, as most of them tend to over quote on per port basis.

      The two listed by paul11, the first one, honestly, the second USB-C port is 5V 2.4A - that's actually a USB-A level output but using a USB-C socket. Why? Even with no USB-PD, you want a USB-C port to at least go 5V 3A (and that still means no PD mode). So, the second port is a USB-C port wired to a USB-A socket. All it does is save you from buying a converter.

      The second one, it does show various combinations and the power distribution in each case. You can sort of get away with Macbook + phone combo, but that's because Macbook doesn't complain or warn you with a under-powered charger normally.

      The other ones, gosh, honestly, all of these multi port chargers are all have specs to trick people. Can't be bothered to go through each of them and point out the dodgy bits. In short, they are all dodgy.

    My Xiaomi 65W PD charger serves my phone and laptop and surface pro and everything very well, only cost me less than $20😂

    • +1 vote

      Xiaomi PD chargers are harder to criticise, mainly because Xiaomi tend to use the same chipset as the chargers found in Lenovo or other original USB-C chargers and Xiaomi do make laptops. However, Xiaomi do cut corners, just not as much. Their powerbanks are mostly single chip design.

      I have a feeling he was referring to a single port charger. Again, people don't seem to understand multi-port chargers are much harder to design well and tend to have much higher noise. Most people cannot tell and don't care.

      It's best to be realistic. These multi-port chargers are likely still single chip design, except tweaked / hacked to operate in multi ports setup. That's why it has that 75W ceiling as the chip doesn't let you overdraw power (otherwise it is really dangerous). Question is, do you really want to believe that chip is really designed for multi-ports?

      •  

        Yes the Xiaomi PD charger is a single Type-C port one. But since it charges everything super fast you don't have to wait in the anxiety of low juice. The build quality is pretty nice and I never worried it could burn my house or some. For most of time it is charging unattended. Multi ports does serve better with more convenience but with less than $20 and such quality you can hardly blame Xiaomi for something.

            @techno2000: Thanks for these details. Personally I'm fine with the US plugs as I do have Xiaomi powerboard as well, same good quality, pretty nice and sturdy. Although this charger requires an adapter or powerboard to work, I do love the foldable design with US plugs, which brings more travel frinedly convenience, and looks and feels nice and neat (OCD here lol).

            Just checked your link and my charger, I think they're pretty much the same thing (different colour and finish though). On my charger it says manufactured by ZMI but it has a large MI logo at the first line of the info area. It delivers [email protected], 9V, 12V, 15V (by auto negotiating defined in the protocol of course), and [email protected] which is the max output. Input range is 100~240V, 50/[email protected] The model number is CDQ07ZM. Just FYI.

            One thing I do want to mention is that, if you buy it from Aliexpress it's fine but be very careful with the free UK and AU adapter (the white ones, I've not idea about the black EU one) as they're built of low quality and very unreliable. I do have an AU adapter as shown in the buying option and the metel got rusty soon and it went loose. When I ran it with a test charge I could clearly hear the buzz caused by current and I teared it down, had a thorough check and decided to throw it away. Just be mindful with that.
