My new favourite: Xiaomi Quick Charge 3.0 charger

This is one seriously good charger

This charger has been selected through Community Reviews and quickly become my “must-take” power supply. Xiaomi Quick Charge 3.0 is worth having for more than one reason. 6 reasons to be precise!

Xiaomi Quick Charge 3.0 Charger

It’s a charger, I get it. You plug it at one end and watch your devices get charged on the other. Why am I talking about it? Xiaomi Quick Charge 3.0 is absolutely worth having with you.

Considering the size, the I/O is impressive – 5 USB-A ports and USB-C enclosed in a case that is hardly bigger than an average wallet. The portability is great, however, living in the UK means that you will carry with you a monster of a plug.

  • USB-C x 1 PD Quick Charge 3.0 specs
  • USB-A x 1 Quick Charge 3.0 specs
  • USB-A x 4 2.4A (4.8 A shared)

Quick Charge 3.0 means that I can not only charge my Xiaomi Mi 9 (review) in under an hour but also power my trusty miniDSO TS80 soldering iron (review).

My typical use

There is still plenty of juice left to use across 4 USB-A plugs for almost 5A of charging current. That’s all ports I will ever need at the same time.

To make things better, Xiaomi Quick Charge 3.0 comes with a detachable cord which can be swapped for a compatible cable in your travel destination.

Power

The eagle-eyed readers will quickly notice that 4 USB-A ports can’t draw 2.4A each, and will be limited to 24W shared across it. These restrictions don’t apply to USB-C and USB-A QC3.0 where each port is rated at 18W.

This means that you can charge two phones with a speed of light. Unless you are like me and one of the phones is Xiaomi Mi 9 with 27W charging and Pixel 3 which doesn’t support anything that isn’t approved by Google.
