Aukey's 3-port USB wall charger puts Quick Charge 3.0 in a compact package

Aukey offers a host of Windows accessories ranging from chargers to Bluetooth accessories. The company's 3-Port USB Quick Charge 3.0 Wall Charger is a fantastic device from Aukey to have around the house or while traveling to avoid the need for multiple chargers.

The Aukey charger has three USB charging ports and all you need to add is the USB charging cable. The charger has two standard USB ports and one Quick Charge 3.0 port that boosts the charging speed for compatible devices up to four times faster.

Available through http://http://Amazon.com?tag=wpcentralb-20 (opens in new tab), the Aukey 3-Port charger is an attractive accessory for those of us who have multiple, power-hungry devices to care for.

The design of the Aukey 3-Port USB Quick Charge 3.0 Wall Charger is very modest. The unit measures 7 x 4 x 2.6 centimeters (that would be 2.76 x 1.89 x 1.02 inches) and weighs a paltry 3.88 ounces/110 grams. The plug folds into the unit, making it very compact and travel-friendly.

The face of the charger has the three USB ports and to the side is an LED indicator that is incorporated into the Aukey logo. The Aukey 3-Port Wall Charger comes packaged with the owner's manual and a micro-USB charging cable (1 meter).

The charger has both AiPower Technology and support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 devices. AiPower Technology helps the charger detect a connected device and ensure the safety of the charger and device by making sure the proper charge is administered.

Quick Charge 3.0 technology promises to dramatically speed up the charging rate of compatible devices, pumping electrons into the battery pack at up to four times the standard rate. There's one Quick Charge 3.0 port on the Aukey charger (that'd be the orange one), it can also charge at Quick Charge 2.0 and 1.0 speeds if that's the best a device supports, and offers up to 2.4 amps of power for non-Quick Charge devices.

As best as I can tell, the LED light is cosmetic in nature to let you know the charger is plugged into the socket. It didn't turn red while charging a device or go out when the device was fully charged. It's a nice touch to let you find the charger in the dark, but beyond that it's just a green light.

Even though no Windows Phones have Qualcomm's Quick Charge tech built in (some do have a so-called "Fast Charge" implementation), the devices I tested with the Aukey 3-Port USB Quick Charge 3.0 wall charger charged at a fairly standard — if maybe a smidge faster — rate from any of the three ports.

The advantage the Aukey 3-Port Wall Charger has with Windows devices is that I can charge my Lumia 950 (opens in new tab), Surface 3 (opens in new tab) and Microsoft Band 2 (opens in new tab) and only tie up one power socket. This helps reduce clutter at the house (which makes the wife happy) and reduces the number of charging plugs I have to carry while traveling. This is a tremendous advantage when vacationing with the family where everyone is fighting for a wall socket to charge their phones.

Overall, the Aukey 3-Port USB Quick Charge 3.0 Wall Charger may be long in name but it is a great Windows accessory to have. The wall charger is currently running $23.99 (US) through http://Amazon.com?tag=hawk-future-20&ascsubtag=UUwpUdUnU38595

  • Is 2.4 A the total capacity? If so that will mean that if I connect 3 devices simultaneously, the charging will be very slow.
  • The only issue with these direct-to-the-wall units (no cable) is the weight of the box and cords threaten to unplug it fully or partially. I find most aren't designed with this in mind. Personally, I say find one with a power cord. They're often the same price, or slightly more, but at least they stay in the wall.
  • This is mainly an issue with the US-Plugs. Continental European don't have this issue.
  • Agreed. Multi prong ftw. I made the comment as the device shown has the North American prongs.
  • is the Lumia 930 compatible with Quick Charge ?
  • Dude the 950xl has Quick Charge 2.0. I confirmed that with MS tech. Has nothing to do with the device it's the CPU. Which is the 810. The 810 (even on Qualcomms website) states quick charge 2.0. I know it's confusing that MS doesn't say this. Here's proof.

  • Weird that almost no article on the internet is pointing out about this. Do you mind sharing your source?
  • How reliable is this brand? To me it seems relatively new, and I've been a fan of Anker for their quality of products. However, they are still to release a product like this one that has a QC3.0 and Qi technology in a compact wall design. Posted using the W10M Windows Central app +950
  • I have several devices from them and have yet to have an issue. I carry the Aukey 20000mah portable charger with me every day and have been extremely pleased with it's reliability and performance.Their devices have worked properly with all of my recent Windows phones (920, 1520, and 950).
  • It's a dead link for me...
  • me too
  • As If I couldn't find another reason to be disappointed with my 950... I get reminded today that they outfitted it with some ambiguous and non-standard fast charge that is incompatible with the ever-expanding Quick-charge device category. Le sigh
  • As ksmithservices said above the 950xl (Qualcomm 810) and 950 (Qualcomm 808) both have Quick Charge 2.0 capability. I can't seem to find any definitive yes/no on whether it's actually enabled on these devices though. It would be nice if there was an official statement.
  • That looks exactly like the CHOETECH 3 port wall charger with the same features except the CHOETECH model has a built in USB-C port and it's a dollar less. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019Z7RVK0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s...
