With seemingly everything USB-connected or -powered these days, it’s more important than ever to have free USB ports. Unfortunately, since there is so much USB-based stuff out there, even if you do have lots of ports (my desktop alone has close to a dozen), it’s still difficult to find any USB ports that are actually available even for what would be an otherwise simple job of charging. Frankly, even if you do find an easily accessible free USB port, there’s no guarantee that it will provide enough power to your device to do anything but trickle charge it. That’s where something like the Phshion 41W 5 Port Auto Sense USB Charger comes in so handy.
The Phshion 41W 5 Port Auto Sense USB Charger provides five auto-sensing USB ports that total a generous 8.2 Amps of output (or about 41 watts of power, like in the name). That’s plenty for charging multiple USB-powered devices at their fastest possible rate.
The hub itself is suitably attractive and compact, with a single removable AC plug out back. The build quality is excellent, with enough weight to the unit where it should have little trouble staying in place.
I personally own several different brands of these types of units and find them invaluable, with some never leaving my desk and other used as portable power centers. What I like the most about the Phshion offering is it’s the smallest of all of the ones I own. While it can’t really be used vertically, its horizontal orientation still creates a modest footprint.
Thanks to Fashion Digital Store for the review unit.
