Desktop chargers can be an invaluable part of your desk setup. Instead of having a power strip full of individual wall warts with cables running from the floor to your desk, a desktop charger can give you multiple USB ports from one outlet in a convenient place.
The Chetech 6 port USB charger is a compact box with six USB ports on the front. It has four black USB ports with a maximum output of 2.4A and two blue Quick Charge 3.0 ports. To the side of the ports is a blue LED.
On the back is the cable that goes to the outlet. What I love about this charger is the lack of a power brick, which I’ve seen on some chargers.
It also comes with a stand that the charger slots into so it can sit vertically. This way it takes up less desk space and looks nicer. It’s still small and compact, but I definitely like how it looks when standing vertically.
When it comes to charging, it does the job as it should. The 2.4A ports charge devices as fast as any other charger does. The two Quick Charge 3.0 ports will charge a supported device rapidly. The advertised charge rate is 60% in 38 minutes and that’s spot on what I noticed it averaging.
This charger is great for travel, since it’s compact and has no power brick. Throw it in a bag without the stand and make sure you’ll be able to both charge multiple devices on one outlet (we all know finding enough outlets in hotels is tough) and top off your main device quickly with Quick Charge.
The only complaint I could possibly have is the price. When it comes to desktop chargers, it’s definitely not the cheapest at $32.99. It’s worth the money as it’s on par with other higher end Quick Charge desktop chargers. Also, something to note is that Quick Charge won’t work with some Motorola devices like the Moto X Pure and Style. It’s odd since every other QC charger works just fine with them, but the Choetech will charge them at 2.4A.
Overall it’s a great charger with no serious downsides. It’s compact, lightweight, has lots of ports, has Quick Charge 3.0, and is reasonably priced. If you want to buy one, head to Choetech or Amazon.
