@cengland0@gatwood@walarney A review at Best Buy said 2x2, 2x1. I’m guessing that the 4x4.8 is a lie. But I shouldn’t be surprised about that from a company that claims their $$$$ cables are better than a $ cable at transferring ones and zeroes.
@RedOx there’s absolutely no way that it is 5V/4.8A per port. That would be 24W per port = 96W total. No one has ever offered anything above 5V/3A (which is uncommon). Most offer 5V/2.1A or 5V/2.4A (12W).
Notice how 2 ports are labeled with .
Also, 2 ports are label with just 1 .
My edumacated guess is:
2x ports = 5V/2.4A each (max)
2x ports = 5V/1A each (max)
Theoretically speaking, if you were to plug in just the 2 , you would get 5V/2.4A each = 4.8A total.
However, since you know that the single ports are limited to 5V/1A, if you were to fill all 4 ports, you would get something like 5V/1.4-1.6A when plugged into the ports, and 5V/0.8-1A when plugged into the ports.
This is how you can ‘ensure’ that devices plugged into the ports get a slight priority if all ports are plugged in, whereas you can assume that single ports will offer more of a trickle charge.
I highly doubt 4.8A per port is accurate. Standard USB is 5V 0.5A with Apple and other companies going up to 2.4A with proprietary protocols using the data pins.
Anything above that is QuickCharge from Qualcomm or USB Power Delivery from USBIF and this charger doesn’t indicate it supports those standards. If it actually delivers 4.8A without implementing QC or PD, there’s a good chance it could destroy your cheap USB devices that don’t have proper overcurrent protection.
I thought these might be nice for my workbench at work where I lean my phone up against an object to watch videos…but looking at the pics you can see the bottom of the phone screen is obscured by the lip on the stand…
Here’s the way it works. Trust me.
Plug in high power port 1 - 2.4A
Plug in high power port 1 and 2. 2.4A each
Plug in high power port 1 and 2 plus low power plug 3 - 2.4A in port 1, 1.2A in port 2 and port 3
Plug in ports 1-2-3-4 and get 1.2A each
As you can see, we’ve had our eye on you for some time now, meh. It seems that you’ve been living two lives. In one life, you’re Matt Rutledge, program writer for a respectable software company. You have a Social Security number, you pay your taxes, and… you help your buyer carry out the garbage. The other life is lived in warehouses, where you go by the hacker alias woot, and are guilty of virtually every deal-a-day crime we have a law for. One of these lives has a future, and one of them does not. I’m going to be as forthcoming as I can be, Mr. Rutledge. You’re here because we need your help. We know that you’ve been contacted by a certain corporation: A man who calls himself Jeff Bezos. Now, whatever you think you know about this man is irrelevant. He is considered by many retailers to be the most dangerous man alive. My colleagues believe that I’m wasting my time with you, but I believe you wish to do the right thing. We’re willing to wipe the slate clean. Give you a fresh start. And all that we’re asking in return is your cooperation in bringing good deals that people actually want.
Word to the wise: Monster as a company has been NOTORIOUS throughout their history for misrepresenting and over-specifying their products. I’m not saying their products are utter crap, just that they take liberties with the English language and outright stretch partial truths to justify the price premium they normally place on said products. As long as the product suits your needs and is within your price range, it’s probably going to be all right. This is truly a meh deal compared to the other offerings for similar prices from other reputable vendors (Anker, etc.)
Having said that, I speak from personal experience with their products. I have some 80s-era Monster speaker cable that I got for pennies on the dollar back then, and it’s still performing admirably in my stereo setups.
Well that was dissapointing. I kinda expected this to be rated input volatge 110-240V since every frikkin charging gadget on the surface of the planet is so rated… excpet this one I guess. Which is rated 125v. So I can’t use it here in Foreignland
