This is Aukey's 5-port USB charging station + Quick Charge 2.0

Perfect for the active household that uses a variety of mobile devices, you can't go wrong with a charging station that frees up crowded outlets and power strips with a single plug. With Aukey's built-in AIPower technology you get the fastest possible charge for your specific device — Quick Charge 2.0 or not.

The compact, pocket friendly design of this 5-port charging station (opens in new tab) fits just about anywhere — measuring only 3.7" X 2.36" X 0.98". Weighing in at a mere 5.26 ounces, it's pretty lightweight for sporting 5 USB ports. Included is detachable power cord that reaches approximately 2.5 feet, along with a matching 40" micro-USB cable. The first 4 ports feature AIPower, which automatically recognizes the voltage settings of your device and adjusts the output for optimal charging speeds up to 2.4A for each port and a total of 7.2A for all 4.

The fifth USB port, colored orange, packs Quick Charge 2.0 — boosting charging speeds up to 75% for any device that's certified to accept it. Even if your device isn't QC 2.0 compatible you can still utilize this port, but won't get the speedy boost in juice. All 5 ports, however, do include over-current, over-charging, and short circuit protection.

Aukey 5 port USB Quick Charger

I'm accustomed to having multiple power strips around my workspace and home to accommodate the plethora of gadgets I use. This 5-port USB charging station cleans up most of the clutter, but once you've loaded up every port with a USB cable, it just isn't as tidy anymore. I think replacing the detachable power cable with built-in (folding) prongs would make this power block more ideal. Granted, its size would undoubtedly crowd an entire outlet, but having 5 ports available is a worthy compromise.

Final thoughts

Anyone using a number of different devices could absolutely benefit from this 5-port USB charging station (opens in new tab), especially with the extra Quick Charge 2.0 port for supported phones like the Galaxy S6 or LG G4. It's small enough to toss in your pocket and Aukey's AIPower technology is a great bonus — preventing over-charging once you hit 100%. As with all of Aukey's products, you've got an 18-month warranty that covers all manufacturer defects. It's currently priced at $29.99 for those interested in giving it try.

  • I have mine velcro'd to a table. With 5 USB cables, 1-3ft long. Looks much tidier than having 5 USB cables coming from my surge protector.
    I will get this when it goes on sale. :)
  • I just bought this last night -- I get it tomorrow. Can't wait!
  • My one and only question is, Do I need another charger? Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes. Galaxy Note 4 {Sprint Lollipop}
    Galaxy S III {FreedomPop 4.3}
    LG G2 {Sprint 4.4.2}
  • But are these safe for our devices? I remember reading a massive article that tested various third-party chargers and most of them were downright dangerous to use because their output wasn't stable like most OEM chargers are.
  • I've been using aftermarket chargers for years, Aukey chargers specifically for the past 6 months, without any issues. As I mentioned in the article, they do include safety measures to prevent over-current and over-charging, as well as short circuit protection.
  • That's good to hear. I purchased some regular charges (several, actually), and the wires became unsoldered from the inside and cause a world of problems for me - I've stuck to OEM chargers ever since, but this one interests me.
  • I've been using the Anker 5 port 40 watt charging block for 6-7 months. No problems.
  • I was just looking at that on Amazon :) I'm a fan of Anker's , so I've put it on my wishlist. Does it have quickcharge on ALL ports or just one/two?
  • As far as I know anker does not have Qualcomm quickcharge Posted via the Android Central App
  • They have something called PowerIQ Technology, but I'm not sure if that's exactly like Qualcomm quick charge.
  • I have something similar but it has 2 quick charge 2.0 slots instead of 1. Works great. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I have a 3-Bay GoPro Battery charger that utilizes USB power as well. Would it be safe to daisy chain that charger, into this charger? I assume the short answer is no.
  • Yeahh, I probably wouldn't mingle those two, just to play it safe.
  • I have a couple of the anker 5 port 40W chargers. I highly recommend these types of chargers, way nicer than 100 power bricks on a power bar.
  • CHOETECH Qualcomm Certified 6-Port Smart Desktop 60W USB Power Adapter has 2 quick charge ports and 4 standard ports. I have one. Nice rubberized feel, and charges everything I have at once.
  • Looks like they forgot to add Qi support :-)
