Tronsmart Titan is the 5-port quick charging station you want

While multi-port USB chargers have been around for some time, integrating Quick Charge into them has been a more recent development — and most of the time these only integrate a single such rapid charging port. Enter the Tronsmart Titan, which puts Quick Charge into all five of its USB ports.

The Tronsmart Titan isn't exactly compact in design, measuring 6.25 x 3.25-inches and just over an inch in thickness, sharing a form that's similar to the popular Anker PowerPort 5 (opens in new tab). Each USB port is colored green (because Quick Charge) and a tiny green LED lights up in the bottom right corner of the station as soon as it gets power. The entire charging station feels solid, the edges and Tronsmart logo are made of a glossy plastic, but it's not a terrible fingerprint magnet since most of the chassis features more of a smooth matte finish.

The only beef I have with the Titan is the ridiculously-short 13-inch power cable that's included. It's really only ideal for setups where an outlet is directly behind the table or desk you're placing it on (and even that's a stretch), requiring an extension cable for the rest of us imperfect people. The good news is they've stated that the next batch of Titans will include a longer 5-foot power cable. No extra USB cables, or USB-C ports, are included, but the power cord is removable from the back which makes the charging station easy to disassemble for travel. Also on the back is a power switch that provides a quick way to power down the station instead of unplugging it from the wall.

Underneath the charging station are 4 small rubber feet that do a decent job at keeping it from sliding around. The biggest gripe with power stations and multiple-port chargers in general using Quick Charge 2.0 technology is the loss in charging speeds as more devices are connected. Tronsmart has made sure to eliminate that frustration with the Titan, providing whopping 90W for all 5 ports — 18W for each port. Their 2-in-1 charging chip is also smart enough to keep each device protected from over-current, overcharging, and overheating. I connected my Galaxy Note 5, an LG G4, Galaxy S6, S6 edge and an S6 edge+ to the Titan and each and every one kicked on as fast charging. So, no complaints on the distribution of power here.

All in all, the Tronsmart Titan is what I've been wanting in a charging station: plenty of ports — all providing Quick Charge 2.0 capability inside a well-built chassis. If you have several devices around your home or office that can utilize what the Titan has to offer it's a no-brainer. The folks at Tronsmart were also kind enough to offer our readers a coupon for $14 off the black Titan at Amazon using the code: 5USBPORT at checkout.

  • Bought one of these a month ago. Glad to see this to validate my purchase. Haven't had a single issue with it since getting it. That cord is short but I have an outlet right there for me so it's not a problem.
  • Quick question. Does it make any kind of pitch noise when multiple devices are connected? Posted via TCP/IP
  • I have it on my side table and have not noticed any sounds from it. Great piece of hardware. Posted via the Android Central App
  • You might want to take another look at your comment for USB C "And, as more USB-C devices start rolling out this year, this is the charging station to consider upgrading to". This device does not have USB C charging ports or the correct output for USB C. From what I can tell this will NOT fast charge my Nexus 6P. Looks like a great charger if you have Quick charge 2.0 devices, but lets not get "Quick Charge 2.0" mixed up with USB C charging standard. It's already confusing enough to consumers.
  • +1 I won't buy another home or car charger unless it supports USB C correctly. Unfortunately, proper support hasn't come in a charger that supports both standards yet. Posted via the Android Central App
  • yep. Might be a good idea to hold out for quick charge 3.0 as well if that shapes up to be the standard.
  • This is correct. The most this charger would be able to output with a USB Type-C device is 1.5A - the same as any other charger with a Type-A port. (3A charging only happens when a Type-C device is plugged into a Type-C charger). Posted via the Android Central App
  • Unless connected through one of those non-compliant cables Benson Leung has been warning us against. Considering that QC 2.0 is rated at 18W per port, and USB-C quick charging draws only 15W, would the use of such cables still risk burning the adapter, or would the Titan be able to handle it?
  • Thanks - updated. Unfortunately I don't have a Nexus 6P to see exactly how fast it charges that device, but I don't see any reason it wouldn't at least charge as fast as regular QC 2.0-compatible devices. Here's to hoping for the Titan 2.0!
  • problem is, QC 2.0 uses non-5V to achieve faster charging, but the nexus usb type-c does 5V/3A fast charging, so probably it won't be "as fast as regular QC 2.0-compatible devices"?
  • Tronsmart rep tells me you'll get a max 2A charge with USB-C. Posted via the Android Central App
  • You're right! I had read a review on Amazon saying that fast charging worked on the 6P with this charger so I ordered one. Well I received it today and it definitely doesn't charge as fast as the Google charger. Ampere shows the maximum USB current as 1500mA where as the Google charger shows 1800mA. Fortunately the Tronsmart car charger that I ordered with it works as advertised and provides fast charging. Here's the link to that one:
  • I love this charger have it also. Quick charge my priv and her s6 and standard charge my watch and work phone with no issues. Posted via the Android Central App
  • 23$ is a great deal. I shouldn't have bought it but couldn't resist. Thanks ac for the heads up and coupon code Posted via the Android Central App
  • I agree. It may not support USB C yet but it would still charge. The price is what sold me. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I backed up the AllDock charger on kickstarter back in the day, but the problem is when I plug more than one device, a slight pitch noise comes out from it. Quite noticeable at night. Wonder if this device doesn't suffer from that. Posted via TCP/IP
  • I just got mine, plugged in 4 devices, no noise Posted via the Android Central App
  • Same here. No noise. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I don't have any USB-C devices, yet, but would I am sick on not having the Quick Charge 2.0 not available on my 5-port ones...
  • Then buy this. The $23.99 is a steal. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Too bad we don't know when the new batch is out with the longer cable...
  • It would be most tempting if they had at least one non- quick charge port. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Why? It would adjust to what the device needs if the device isn't quick charge
  • All my non-Apple phones have Quick charge, but it's rare that I use it. Normal charge rates are healthier for the battery. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Exactly. There is no down side here except the USB C not being fully supported Posted via the Android Central App
  • Tronsmart makes a version that has 1 QC and 4 5V/2.1A ports if that's more to your style, I got one a while ago to consolidate my chargers and it handles charging my smartwatches, my Qi charging pad, my iPad and whatever I need topped off via QC with ease. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Hmmm, that would fit my needs nicely. Thanks for the tip! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Just what I NEEDED thanks :)
  • Do the GS6 models even fast charge on this thing? I thought Quick Charge 2.0 required a Qualcomm chipset?
  • Yes they do charge. Samsung has an implementation of qc, they all do at this point I believe Posted via the Android Central App
  • Both my GS6 edge and Note 4 quick change with it just fine. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I just bought one and it charges my samsung s6 edge plus, note 5 and the lg v10. i wanted to buy another one but the coupon code is no longer valid.
  • Fgh Posted via the Android Central App
  • Hey, I just tried to use the promo code at Amazon and the site replied "The promotional code you entered is not valid."
    Anyone else having a problem?
  • I just tried it too and it didn't work. Perhaps it expired? Posted via the Android Central App
