This is the smallest and best rapid charger I’ve got
I like it when things feel solid and this little charger certainly feels solid, kind of like a little brick.
Using it is extremely simple, plug it into a wall and then plug your charging cable into it. There is one USB port which for me is sufficient as I only need to charge one device at a time where this is located.
What’s important to note is that this charger is Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 compliant. As such it’s capable of charging at:
3.6v to 5v at 3 amps, 5v to 9v at 2 amps, and 9v to 12v at 1.5 amps.
In other words, whatever your phones requirements are this charger can handle it. It provide’s the rapid charging that gets me back in action a lot faster than the other cube chargers I have been using for some time. I also like that its Qualcomm compliant as this is the new standard everyone is trying to meet and the fact that it has met this standard also gives me some piece of mind that it’s not some cheap brand name knock off that will damage my phone.
I also like that it has some smarts, when faced with a high current load it increases voltage. This makes it easier on your phones battery charging system. In the images below you can see that without a load attached the voltage floats at 5.16v. When under a load of 2.7 amps it’s actually putting out 5.28v. Most chargers when faced with a load like that will have the voltage drop to under 5 volts. In other words, this is a smart charger in that it senses a load and makes up for any expected drop in voltage.
There is one thing that you should know about any charger that puts out this much current, it will run warm. This is normal and nothing to worry about. As your phone starts to get charged and less current is required you’ll notice it cools off.
I also appreciate that the company stands behind their products:
– 30 Days Money Back Guarantee
– 18 Months Replacement Warranty
– Lifetime Product Support Guarantee
What’s not to like:
~Puts out enough current to truly fast charge today’s power hungry smart phones
~Is capable of charging at whatever voltage your phone requires
~Keeps the voltage up as current needs go up
~Provides stable voltage and current throughout the charge cycle
~Small form factor
Excellent charger that comes with excellent company back up, I took the opportunity to contact their customer support department. They responded quickly and were very courteous. For me this customer service is half the reason I buy products, if I can’t get support if something fails why should I buy the hardware?
