With the adoption of USB C quickly on the rise, more and more accessories are coming out to complement all those new devices. Now Satechi has released a new 6-port desktop charger which packs 60W of charging power along with USB C compatibility.
The charger has 4 USB A ports along with two USB C ports. At any given time the charger can deliver 12A of power to all 6 ports which should provide ample speeds for charging up devices such as the Nexus 6P, 12″ Macbook, and the Pixel C. While you won’t find Qualcomm’s Quick Charge standards here, you will find 2.4A speeds on all 4 USB A ports along with rapid charging speeds via the USB C ports, at least for compatible smartphones.
Satechi lists the following as the features for this new charger.
- Simultaneously charge multiple Type-C and Type-A devices: features two high-power Type-C USB ports and four 2.4A Type-A USB ports.
- Smart auto-detect charging technology: Ensures each device is getting its maximum charge and will adjust compatible devices to deliver best possible charge.
- Charges most devices: Maximizes output power up to 60W / 12amps among 6 ports, charging multiple devices at full speed.
- Convenient and compact: The charging station come with a power cable so you can plug it in and put it where you need it. The compact size makes it easy to move and fit in anywhere you need power.
Generally chargers like this will cost a bit more than expected, however Satechi has priced this option extremely reasonably at just $29.99. You can already pick up the charger in both black and white over on Amazon although it’s worth noting that Prime shipping isn’t available just yet.
