It may look the same as the Anker, but I'd be willing to wager that this Chinese knock-off doesn't have the same components inside!!!!!!

I wonder if they have as exemplorary customer service as Anker when you have to phone Swees to complain it has fried your 5 devices worth a combined £2 grand

EDIT: The Anker one is also 40W, so any comparison other than the physical form-factor, or suggestion it is just a rebadged Anker, is just silly oO

Well that mightn't be a bad thing, if the Anker often fries things connected to it.
Personally, I'd prefer a non frier than having to cross my fingers for a free replacement of anything connected under some Anker insurance

You twisted the words or else misunderstood - I was contrasting the quality Anker product (a company with exemplary customer service) with this Chinese knock-off from an unheard-of company. I'm certain the anker product will not fry my £2ks worth. This, as any other Chinese copy, could do anything.

In the mimicing game you often find the Chinese sweat-shop copies have similar names - they have not even had the grace to badge it Anquer or so in this case X)

I also note the excellent customer reviews (NOT) for this Chinese knock-off - LOL. Good luck plugging your £600 iPad into it - get good household fire insurance is my advice

i think your words were twisted, and I agree with you, I wouldn't trust this with any of my devices, granted most top end devices will have protection but even so.

We all like a bargain, but it's like playing Russian Roulette when you plug a knock-off into your carefully sourced + expensive prize pet tech. I dunno why people do this TBH!

Well, hopefully Anker see this and post a code for a discount on theirs to encourage folk to buy theirs instead :-)

I'm waiting for such a code as I'd like the 40W (or 25W/2 intelligent ports ports version) at a discount...

A bit like your household fire insurance should with this sorta crap!

72% and none of the plus raters even read "up to 10 amps overall or 2 amps per port"

Does anyone with a sober head think this Chinese knock-off equates to 50W when it plainly cannot get the description together?!

Original Poster

Ok my original post should have said looks similar to rather than the same as. The other products from Swees have generally favourable reviews, with no incidents involving spontaneous combustion that I could see. I would also point out the Anker 40W at 19.99 is made in China.

I second this! Ankers' built it's name up over a rather short period of time, why is the 'Swees' name held in such contempt!? 1-2 years from now, it might be bigger that Anker; which lets face it isn't exactly a household name as it stands...

Sure, if all these neg comments were coming from people whose homes had burn down, due to this here device, then I'd say fair enough. Fact is. none of you have even owned this product, so why the spurious speculation?

Why? USB ports are 5 volts...

2 amps x 5 ports x 5 volts = 50 watts
10 amps x 5 volts = 50 watts

Seems to add up ok to me...

Price now up to £10.99

Exactly. What is he/she trying to say?

Do a Google search for "50W 5V / 10A 5 Port USB Charger" and "40W 5V / 10A 5 Port USB Charger" - there are many similar LOOKING products about.

I'd wager the 50W and 40W units might be different internally, but they all come out of the same factory in China. Looks like many marketing organizations OEM them, Anker being one of them. Assuming they are indeed the same, it'll only be the quality of the support you get that will differentiate which you buy...

Do Tecknet have a reputation closer to Anker or Swees?

amazon.co.uk/Tec…DES

50W 6 port model for £3 more - still a lot less than Anker.

Unless someone competent performs a tear down of this and the Anker.etc we'll never really know what the component quality inside is like.

in fact, TeckNet also is offering a Free Apple MFI lighting cable

Exactly. I love how people love to philosophize about which electronic device will burn down their house ignoring that whatever electronic devices they're discussing may be in fact the same, or build in the same plant.

this company is good. got a power bank and its solid

So how many people have had electric shocks from their 'bargain' Swees charger? youtube.com/wat…lse

Yikes! A good reason not to buy 'cheapest'... But if they all come out of the same factory, well, it's a lottery

Mine 'died' a few weeks after I got it. Not sure if it was the same fault, just no output at all. At the time I was annoyed because it had gone up in price but Amazon would only offer a refund not a replacement. In hindsight it was probably for the best.
