This would be a reasonable price for a Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 but having 5 ports makes it a great deal, as the closest alternative on Amazon is the Aukey one at £17.99. I've been using something similar for several years to charge all my devices but as I've got a Quick Charge 3.0 phone I'll be grabbing one of these to upgrade.

As usual, 3 year warranty from Aldi (thanks for the reminder PlanetP).

Description implies it's a 1x USB 3.0 and 4 x USB 2.0 charger but it looks like whoever's writing the description has got confused as it's clearly imprinted on it that it's a Quick Charge 3.0 charger.

Black: (Available from 11th September in store).

Nice one, thanks. The three year warranty is worth a mention too. I've pre-ordered the white one. :)

Free standard delivery linked to their summer sale atm as well so an even better purchase for me!

Correct me if I'm wrong but 40 watts means a maximum of 1.6 amps per port? That's lower than most standard chargers these days. I've no idea what the spec of QC 3.0 is and I can't be bothered to do the Googling but surely that port would draw 4 amps on its own?

In fact, I have done a little Googling and I've found a website that states gives 2 different figures for QC 2.0. 18W and 20W. Whichever is accurate that's nearly half the output of this charger for just one port. Lets not forget that this charger supports QC 3.0 so I guess the power draw would be a bit higher.

Right, if you want all ports to run at max , £10 is not possible or even at 2 or 3 of the ports. The weight of the transformer would be quite big and heavy too. I have a Tecknet 6 port USB charger 5V 12.6A 63W 6-Port each deliver 2.1A, but the transformer is very heavy as the weight of these things go up exponentialy with watts or amps.
And if you go to Amazon you will see those people moaning about the size of the transformer without realising the higher amps means bigger transformers unless you pay much price where the coils could be made smaller with much more expensive magnets. That's why the Aldi marketing photo does not show you the transformer size.

You're wrong, and I will correct You
The sole purpose of those cheap multi charges is to charge multiple devices 2-4 at once, if you going for device with QC you must have one which would benefit from it (snapdragon 800 and newer devices)
Even if you would use 1st port max power which is 18w this will leave you 2 more usb ports for 5V times 2A = 10W each and last one for something crappy like usb spearker
Again I just put the max theoretical output, most of the time you wont be using more than 2 of them at the same time and if you think you do just buy 60W version of amazon

Which part was I wrong on? I'm not 100% sure but didn't you just say that it's only going to have enough power for 3 of the 5?

The part where you said it would "mean a maximum of 1.6 amps per port". Assuming it dynamically controls the power requirements for each port, then each can achieve a higher maximum if fewer devices are plugged in, eg. 2.1A per port, or even 2.5A depending what it is capable of outputting down a single port, but with five devices plugged in, they would not all be running at this max. That would require somewhere in the region of 60W+ to give 18W to the QC port and 10.5W (5v 2.1A) to each of the other ports. It should still support five devices at lower draw, or fewer devices at a higher draw.

What they actually said was that if you needed the QC and two 2A ports, then that would virtually max the draw.

Okay thanks. I think with the amount of discussion that has been had people have a good idea of what the product is and isn't capable. Thanks for the input.

I'll end as I started but add a little qualifying comment. For me, 40 Watts is insufficient for a 5 port charger.

For anyone looking for a QuickCharge car charger, Geekbuying have a good deal on a 42W Tronsmart for about £6 which includes a decent 20AWG cable:

I have a Tronsmart 5 port mains charger which I saw on hukd deal and my buying reflex kicked. After I ordered I thought how daft why the hell do I need this but it has turned out to be the most useful thing ever. Firstly it charges my phone to full in about 50 minutes, secondly you can (obviously) charge 5 things at once without needing 5 chargers. When you're in a foreign hotel room with phone, Bluetooth speaker, tablet, sansa clip, noise reduction headphones, honestly you just pat yourself on the back for having the foresight to buy one of these.

I haven't actually clicked through to check but the brands I've seen all come with 3 pin UK to figure 8 cable (IEC 320 C7).

Baware!!! It's not a fully functional quick charge 3.0 charger. Only one port the usb 3.0 is quick charge 3.0 compatible rest of them are normal charging ports

So you thought that all five ports would be Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0?!!

A 40 watt charger could never drive 5x QC 3.0 ports...! So there is nothing for anyone to 'beware' about!

OP here, 40w should suffice for most people. I've an USB voltage/amperage meter and QC 3 comes it at (depending on the type of cable) when connected to my LG G5:

Cable 1: Stock LG G5 USB Type C Cable: 7.08v at 2.25a
Cable 2: CHOETECH USB Type C Cable: 6.50v at 2.40a

This was using an Anker QC 3.0 Car Charger.

Both of these equate to just a fraction under 16 watts (I read online 18 watts was the upper limit for QC 3.0).

I have my iPad Air 2 (stock charger at 10 watts) and my droid phone (16 watts) so leaves 14 watts for lower powered stuff if you need it. Not to mention the QC device will be done after an hour anyway, freeing up more watts. This is fine unless you're absolutely desperate to fast charge numerous devices simultaneously.

Horses for courses though. If you needed masses of power, could buy something with greater wattage. Or at this price, just buy two of these ;)

Hi Mike, there's a very good chance. Sorry I can't be more concrete than that. I found out that the LG G5 would inexplicably not Quick Charge with certain Type C cables, honestly the QC 3.0 and Type C spec have left masses of confusion for something that should have been just standardised by now. Honestly, finding safe aftermarket Type C cables and chargers for the G5 has been a PITA.

I'd say that this charger *should* be able to put out the fast charge requirements of the Lumia. The devices are indeed smart when it comes to drawing power and generally draw the most they are safely capable of getting from the charger. So theoretically there shouldn't be an issue. In practice, however, you never know!

Could always just give it a shot and if it's no good return it!

Thanks, perhaps it's worth a trip out just to see, would be handy for a work trip to have a fast charger - the hotel rooms I get only have a couple of sockets so it's a pain to charge all the devices. The more I think about it, the more I think I need the device regardless - damn this site....

Honestly I've had a different branded 5 port USB charger for the last year and I'd never cope without one now! In fact I have one downstairs next to my sofa and one next to my bed. What with everything needing USB charging these days, like cameras, phones, tablets, and my PS4 headset and controller etc it's an exceptionally useful bit of kit to have. As you say you go on work trips, it's definitely worth the cash.

I know the feeling about this bloody site... designed to save money but all I know is every day I'm discovering something new that I never knew I needed!

Is quick charge 3.0 backwards compatible with a quick charge 2.0 phone? as in it won't just charge at a normal rate but at a 2.0 rate?

Also is it true that using quick charge shortens the overall life of the battery quite dramatically?

Yeah, as per comment #30:
"Yes. QC 3.0 is fully backwards compatible with QC 1.0 & QC 2.0"

Also, yes. It is believed in the long run it will have an effect on a battery's lifespan, although it's not believed to be a huge difference. Your device will probably be upgraded / obsolete by then anyway.

Anker customer service is amazing. 18 months fuss free warranty. You'll have no problem getting them to send a new one out to you.
