I’ve purchased Archeer products before and with my first order I wasn’t sure of what I would be getting quality wise, I’d never seen the name before. I’m glad to say that I’m quite pleased with the three items I now own that are made by them.
The good stuff:
~Quick Charge 3.0
~Standard QC 3.0 USB Type-C Port 3.6-6.5C/3A, 6.5-9V/2A, 9-12V/1.5A
~USB A 2.4A Rapid Charge USB Port
~Solid and well-built
~Fold down AC prongs
~Doesn’t over heat even when supplying a rapid charge at 2.7 amps at 5v
~40 days money back guarantee, 18-month warranty
~The exterior has a coating that makes it easy to grip
This little charger is solid. Everything about it suggests it’s well built. The USB ports are a very good fit, connectors snug, there is no movement which is an important item to me. When charging, if there is any movement it can and has caused one of my phones charging circuits to fry, that’s what the phone techs told me, because when the power is quickly disconnected and reconnected it can cause a surge that causes electrical components to blow up.
The fold out prongs don’t come out easy, they are nice and tight whether they are folded down or out for use. They are also sized right, they are thick enough that they don’t flop around in an AC socket, they fit snug. I’ve bought dollar store chargers that almost fall out of the AC socket and never work right unless I bend the prongs together which isn’t right.
I like that this charger has two ports that aren’t the same, there’s one USB A and one USB C port. This way I can use both old and new charging cables saving me money.
As for charging capability, it exceeds my needs. Being rated as a Quick Charge 3.0 device it has the capability of charging at different voltages as well as higher current capabilities. The charger easily puts out 2.7 amps (as in the images below) and is capable of more. At this rate, a sustained charge only resulted in slight warming of the charger. Also, note that while putting out 2.7 amps the voltage remained over 5v. Many charger can put out this kind of current but the voltage often drops to 4.9 or less volts. This may not seem like much but it makes a difference to how fast my phone is charged and lower voltage means the phones charging circuitry has more load on it.
Overall I’m pretty happy to have this in my laptop bag when I’m on the road, the fold down prongs don’t cause damage to anything else in it and when in hotels I have a reliable charger that can quick charge both my phone and my Kindle.
