The RAVPower RP-PC029 6-Port Desktop Charger is sturdy and well made. It can charge any combination of smartphones, tablets, MP3 players, generally any rechargeable USB device.
Instead of having multiple wall warts on the kitchen counter this unit takes just 1 AC outlet to power 6 devices. It's much easier to create an organized charging station and all devices charge quickly and it comes with a 1.5m power cord to give you a little extra wiggle room.
The RAVPower RP-PC029 includes Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 technology and claims it can charge devices up to 4x as fast as conventional chargers. We didn't measure as there's just too many variables with all the devices and battery health etc. We can tell you this unit seemed to charge everything as fast or faster than OEM chargers they came with. This includes iPads, iPhones, Sony Phones, Samsung Phones and SanDisk MP3 players.
Not that we get all excited about charging units but yes this is a good device and well worth the $30. It feels solid, works well and will not end up in the drunk drawer with the sub-par chargers. You'll get a lot of use out of this.
