9 Multiport chargers that will power all your devices
When you own multiple mobile devices, charging can become a nightmare. These multiport chargers should help you restore some order — whether you’re at your desk, on the road, or camping in the woods.
- What type of port provides the fastest charging? USB-PD is the fastest, with a maximum output of 18W. However, most smartphones and tablets don’t need that much power.
- What is the difference between QuickCharge and USB-PD? Whereas QuickCharge is compatible with USB 2.0 connectors, USB-PD requires Type-C connectors.
- Is USB-C compatible with USB-A? Yes, but you will need an adapter or a USB-C to USB-A cable, as the connectors are different.
From smartphones to action cameras and drone batteries, we have an insatiable hunger for power nowadays. Using separate chargers for each device would be a logistical nightmare. But with these multiport chargers, you can power all your devices with ease.
