Nowadays, two power outlets are rarely enough when everyone has so many smart devices to charge. Even a person living alone will probably own a smartphone and a MP3 player at the very minimum. That can be easily solved at home with the use of power strips, but power strips aren’t exactly the easiest thing to take along when traveling. This EasyAcc 4-port 20W wall charger, though, can solve that problem.
This EasyAcc wall charger comes in two colors, black and white, and it features a folding plug, which makes it easy to fit into suitcases and backpacks. The charger also comes with an LED indicator that lights up when it is connected to a power source, letting one see at a glance whether the charger is inserted correctly as well as whether the power outlet that the charger is inserted into is dead or not. This means that a situation in which one leaves one’s device to charge only to find out hours later that nothing’s been charged due to problems with the outlet or charger will never occur.
The main feature of this charger, though, is, of course, what it’s designed for—charging USB devices. This charger features four USB ports and a total power output of 20W, which means that it can output a total of 4A of current. Two of the ports have outputs of 2.1A, which make them suitable for charging just about any device with 5V input, as the highest amount of current that a device needs to charge at full speed tends to be 2.1A. Another port has an output of 1.3A, which makes it perfect for the Galaxy Tab. The last port has an output of 1A, which means that just about any smartphone can be charged at full speed with it.
However, as can be readily seen, the charger will not be able to charge more than two tablets at full speed at the same time, and if all four ports are in use, then the only case in which all four devices connected can be charged at full speed would be if they were all smartphones, MP3 players, and/or accessories such as Bluetooth headsets or speakers. For this reason, this charger would not be suitable for gadget geeks.
In addition, the size of the charger means that if it is plugged into a power outlet that has two sockets arranged vertically, it will block off the other socket, reducing the number of useable sockets from two to one and doing exactly the opposite of what it’s meant to do.
Thus, while useful, this charger does have its limits. If the charger won’t be needed to charge more than two tablets simultaneously or if its potentially blocking off a power socket won’t be a problem, though, then this wall charger from EasyAcc would do a great job, especially since it’s compatible with just about any device with 5V input. It comes with a user manual as well, which is not the norm for wall chargers. For these reasons, the charger is worth a look, and it can be found at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LWRKAR8.
