There’s no denying that we have all become dependent on our technology, most of which are USB powered devices. Having to charge different electronics throughout the day, it should come as no surprise that having a USB charging station can really save the day. This is especially true if you have limited wall outlets, be it in your office, in a hotel, or home.
Having a USB charging station can actually reduce clutter and since they are fast at charging devices, you can charge everything you have and be good to go. You want to remember that a USB charging station isn’t made to transfer data (you would need a USB power hub for this) – it has been designed to only supply power to your technological devices.
We tried and tested many and concluded that the Anker powerport 60W multi-port USB charging station is a clear winner. The conclusion was based on the pro’s and con’s of each charger.
Anker is a brand that we all know provide great quality electronic accessories. This USB charging station is a 60-watt solution to all your charging problems. This isn’t the cheapest model but as far as quality goes, it can’t be beaten. It comes in both a white and black model so you can choose one that is aesthetically pleasing to you. You get 6 ports with this model, plus 12A current to each port which is more than enough power.
The Anker powerport 60W multi-port USB charger utilizes something that Anker is known for and that is PowerIQ, in other words, smart charging. This smart charging means that Anker strives to deliver you with the fastest charge possible even on all of the latest devices. Meaning all your devices will be charged and ready to go in almost no time at all. There is one downside that might not be the best for some of you, and that is that the Anker powerport 60W multi-port USB charger does not support Qualcomm quick charge 2.0. Now for those of you who don’t speak tech, this means that devices like the LG G4, Nexus 6 and Galaxy Note 4 will not charge as fast as they would with a standard wall charger that supports them. They will still charge of course, just not as fast as one would like.
According to our friends at Dulcis Domus, the pro’s about this product that we particularly love is that you get surge protection and many other safety features that you don’t see in cheaper models. The smart charging system will adjust itself to provide the right amount of voltage for your devices, and you get a warranty. The only con is the price tag, which is easily justifiable when you want quality and the fact that it doesn’t support Qualcomm quick charge 2.0. If you are looking for a decent USB charging station then look no further than the Anker powerport 60W multi-port USB charger.
