does it fast charge
fame1 m ago

does it fast charge


From item description
"Does not support QualComm fast charge"

I was wondering this too
aaah damn deal breaker
Great, bought with no-rush delivery
Just note that it is a 2.4a unit, not 4.8a as claimed in the post. Tom's Hardware tested the American version of this and the voltage started dropping above 2a. Link to test page

”Output voltage holds steady from no load until 1.5A on 115V and 2A on 230V input, then it dips by roughly 100mV per additional 500mA. We find no problem here”

That means on 230 volt input the output voltage drops less than 0.1 volt at the full 2.4 amps, hardly worth mentioning!

The point is that it is going to top out around 2.4a, not 4.8. If you plug in two high drain devices, the voltage will drop further and the current will limit to 2.4. In some cases, devices will see the voltage drop or overcurrent protection in the charger will activate and stop charging.

Yes, I get the 2.4 amps bit, but no device is gonna get upset with a voltage drop which is within 2% of 5 volts! The voltage drop part of your comment is irrelevant.

You missed the point because I opened the first post by saying it IS a 2.4a unit. My only point is that it is not 4.8a because yes the voltage starts dropping and it is fine till that point (2.4a) but as with most other chargers, will drop off much faster after its typical range.

No I didn't miss the bit about amperage at all. This is the part of your original post I've been commenting about. "Tom's Hardware tested the American version of this and the voltage started dropping above 2a." THAT is not worth giving a mention, because THAT will make people wishing to buy it, that not only is the current output falsely advertised but the output voltage is unstable, which it clearly isn't, get me?

Ok but as I said I am not criticising the 2.4a capability of the device as the first part of the quote you have conviniently omitted states; "Just note that it is a 2.4a unit".

The point of mentioning the start of voltage dropping at that point is that it is strongly suggestive that that is where the circuitry will not go much farther but still fine in its rated 2.4a zone.

Can we just agree that this is a 2.4a unit and not 4.8a?

Edit, I should have put the .4 or said it's fine for 2.4a. But the 4.8a in the original post is incorrect.

Sigh the only point was that it is 2.4a not 4.8a which is far more than this device is rated for.
Sigh? that's not how it reads although even when I put your comments in quotation marks you still can't see it. You made reference to voltage dropping, my comments have been about that all along, really don't know why you can't see that. Get someone else to read it for crying out loud.

Yes voltage drops but every charger does that at its limits. The point of bringing it up is that, as I've said, it is suggestive of where the current limit is.

Now I finally understand your thought process but most people (myself included) will think you are questioning voltage stability as well as current draw.

I'm glad we resolved that. I could have made it clearer. This charger is good for use within its specified range of 2.4a.

If you are curious, a quick way to see if a 5v charger is in spec is to put an increasing load on it and watch the voltage. It starts falling slowly around its limit, then it plummets. You can test your own chargers by looking for 'USB doctor', usb load or resistors on eBay and make sure the charger you buy delivers what it says it's does.

I've had bad chargers where once it goes over capacity, it just keeps turning off and on every second. The phone that's connected just goes bing-bing-bing to tell you it's connected to a charge, then it's not, then it is again. One other one seemed fine, then it smelled funny then it died. Thankfully I was charging a power bank and that seemed fine. Now I'm really cautious to test every charger I get properly. And one generic '40w desktop charger' I had seemed to blow an internal fuse or something when I was doing a test since it won't do anything now.
it is a total of 2.4, so 1.2 each. You should still find a similar product at Homebase for ££2.50

I was going off the spec on the Aukey website which I've pasted below, hence why I said it was 2.4amp per usb. As has been said it appears to be 2.4A Max total, not 4.8A.

Model Number: PA-U32
Technology: AiPower
Input: 5V 2.4A
Output: 5V 4.8A
Total Power: 12W
Weight: 34g / 1.2oz

Lol
Actually no. Poundland sells a dual port charger for £2 just reviewed by big Clive, tops out around 2.2A with both ports commoned, however it ramps the voltage up towards this limit. This is a good thing because resistance in many usb cables can cause smart devices to incorrectly sense a limit if voltage drops. Just so you know. And so this £2 charger may be better than this.?

If you are all pedantic, it should be a capital A for amps, as the unit was named after a person ie André-Marie Ampère. As V for volt, Henry, etc, etc
