It's not even close to being able to power 4 devices quickly.

It has a lowly 5.4A across 4 ports. This means it can do 2.4 amps (which is still pretty slow by todays standards) on 2 ports, then you have just 0.6A left for the other two.

I'd much rather pay £2 more and get a RAVPower one which can actually power all 4 ports at full: amazon.co.uk/Cha…-11

This Anker deal is okay I guess, but there is nothing special about it. Pretty standard price for a low end USB charger. Just don't see the point in buying something so basic that you're likely to keep for years.

good spot, camels and keepa arent showing that
Bought this at a higher price. Still a really good plug adapter, def worth it. Just remember to keep the non UK bits together somewhere as it will save you next time you head on hols 😁
Great bit of kit. Took it on holiday l. Top quality.

It's plenty fast enough, most devices don't try and take the full 2.4A if you actually check what they're drawing, most have a limit of 2A and that's when the battery is not near full. If you can carry one plug and it be able to charge 4 devices at reasonable speed and is of good quality what is the problem? No-one said it's the fastest charger ever.

People are just spoilt with 25-40W charging on the latest phones and think everything should have this.
Anything similar with QC3?

I agree, for the most part. The rate is about 2 to 2.1A, not 2.4A. 2.4A has always been a misnomer, quote by the manufacturers due to inefficiencies.
You need to factor in voltage as well, which non of these cheaper chargers will do. The main difference in QuickCharge 3 is voltage, not amp.

My point was that "Seems capable of applying power quickly to 4 devices at once" simply isn't true. If it's fast enough for your needs, awesome. 5.6A isn't a lot across 4 ports, certainly when £2 more gets you one that can do 2+A across all 4 ports.

I didn't say there was a "problem" - I said it was nothing special, with better being available for £2 more.

I never claimed everyone should have a 25-40W charger and I do not think this. Again - there is better available for £2 more for this price point and charger size. The one I linked doesn't have QC, PD etc. It's just another 2amp charger, but across all 4 ports.

I don't see how it's a deal with that in mind. Just making people aware of their options. Nothing more

I know what you mean but I am talking about someone who uses this on holiday and we’ve happily charged 3 tablets (2 iPads and a Tab S) plus an iPhone and it’s not unduly slow or perceptibly less than the Apple ones. It’s not dog slow put it that way.

Yes you won’t get the 9 or 12V charge but you can realistically expect 1.5-2A at 5V out of it for something not much bigger than Apple’s 12W iPad charger (now 10W).

And of course, the brand has appeal too.

Cool, glad it works for you

I use a lot of high power devices, which will happily take the amps - powerbanks being particularly happy to do so. Having 4 ports at 2+A can make a big difference in those cases.

If you're not using those devices, then less important for sure.

I travel a lot too, and I don't like the interchangeable ones. The one I've been most happy with is this style: smile.amazon.co.uk/hyl…-10

The reason I prefer this style is that you're not carrying around extra bits / remembering to leave and pick the ones up you need. It may appear a bit bigger, but once you add all the extra bits up you're carrying about anyway, there is nothing in it.

The issue with these is the same as the Anker one here, in that they are "only" 5.6A across all the ports. This one has USB-C with 3A support, so that leaves 2.6A-ish for the rest of the ports. Keep in mind that USB-C 3A is quicker than USB-A to USB-C. My S9+ won't fast charge with USB-A to USB-C, unless it's on a "Quick Charge" compatible charger. USB-C to C solves that, and it now fast charges on this adaptor without any of the QualComm stuff.

This might be suitable for you, depending on what you charge. If it's a few tablets / phones as plewis has said, it won't be too bad. If you're doing larger things, then you need to be aware of it.

I only take 1 powerbank away with me, so it's not too bad. That simply gets charged overnight. At home I have more than 1 powerbank which often need recharging at the same time (kids!), then having full charge ports can make a big difference.

If you prefer the style of this Anker, then it's really between this deal at 27W, or this one at 34W, but more expensive: smile.amazon.co.uk/Syn…-22

The SyncWire is a good unit but almost twice the price - I've had their stuff before and it's nicely made, I got one of their USB-C units on offer before and it's really well made and barely gets warm. The RavPower looks good (I use their stuff too) but that's a UK only block. Your travel charger, I've never heard of the brand. I think the big appeal here is Anker even if it's not quite as quick when fully loaded.

The S9 is a fussy phone, it won't pull 2A+ from a 5V source, I've only got a proper fast charge off USB-C. Sometimes it will 'quicker' charger over USB-A but when you check it's only taking about 1.4A.

It's not fussy as such - its just following the Battery Charging 1.2 spec for USB, which only allows 1.5A. This is also why, as you correctly said previously, so many devices won't hit above this as they stick to the spec (and rightly so!)

If you use a QualComm based charger, then you'll get the better voltage + amp increase on the S9, even when using USB-A to C. The amps will still look 'low' as you've pointed out, but the voltage will be higher/ stepped more efficiently.

...Or USB-C to C as you said, which I'd rather just replace all forms of QuickCharge.

The iPad is typically the device that pulls in 2.1A, along with some powerbanks.

Yes that’s exactly how it seems to be. But as many devices fall back to 5V without QC (can the Samsung Exynos devices even use QC as it’s Qualcomm technology) you can get the higher current rates. The iPads will take 2A and charge at normal rate - which is never really that fast anyway.

So for the same reason as you I am waiting for a 4 port USB C (PD) charger for travel as that’s everything sorted! The technology is getting cheaper so it won’t be long - PD power banks were £20-25 or more and now they’re down to £10.

It's uglier. When you reach three or four devices it's likely to charge a little faster though.
