With the rise in popularity of USB C equipped devices comes the need to charge them. We’ve been covering numerous USB C products here on our website and today I get to show you possibly my favorite one so far. Choetech recently released a 3-port wall charger which packs two standard USB ports, but also a USB C port. The two standard USB ports don’t pack anything particularly exciting. They are able to charge at up to 2.4A and adjust that depending on the connected device. I had no issues using this with my microUSB devices such as the Galaxy Note 5 and Nexus 9. However the USB C port is the real attraction here.
This port is capable of charging devices such as the Nexus 6P, Lumia 950, Chromebook Pixel 2, and more at a rate of up to 5V/3A. This provides rapid charging speeds for smartphones such as the 950 and 6P and in my testing with both of these devices I saw charging speeds comparable to those of the chargers that each device shipped with. Of course you will need a C-C cable in order to charge using this port.
This charger is designed to be portable and thus it has a foldable plug on the back so that it can fit in a bag a bit easier. In my testing I found this plug a bit difficult to pull out, but it’s not impossible by any means.
The Choetech 3-port wall charger with USB C is available on Amazon for $22.99 and I can’t recommend it enough. It makes a great travel companion for charging multiple devices and I take it with me to work everyday as well as when I’m away from home for the day. Definitely be sure to check it out at the link below.
