It’s been a little bit over a month since I received and unboxed the Quntis 65W 5-Port Smart PD USB Charging Station. Today, I’m going to share with you a detailed review of the product. It contains my initial impressions, experience, and test results.
I’ve used it mostly to charge my smartphones (Galaxy A50 and Galaxy S20 FE), but for testing purposes, I used it to charge the following devices: Galaxy Book S, Nintendo Switch, Jackery Giant+ 12000mAh Dual USB External Battery, Fitbit Blaze, iPad Mini, and Akaso V50 Pro Action Camera just to mention a few.
By the way, if you need/want to know the features, technical specifications, and other product information, please check out my Quntis 65W 5-Port Smart PD USB Charging Station unboxing post. It also features an unboxing video, so you might want to check that out as well.
QUNTIS 65W 5-PORT SMART PD USB CHARGING STATION REVIEW
Regarding the packaging, I expected and experienced the same type of quality as the other Quntis products we have unboxed and reviewed in the past.
The overall design, as well as the materials used, are high-quality and on par with popular brands. It’s not the same packaging that you see from the majority of cheap products you buy or see online.
DESIGN & BUILD QUALITY
In terms of the product design and the build quality, it’s the same thing as I have mentioned earlier regarding the packaging. If you have come across my unboxing and reviews of the iPhone Fast Charger, e-Reading LED Task Lamp, and the 20W Dual Port Fast Charger, one of the things I consistently mention about Quntis products is the level of quality.
A few years back, I reviewed a “premium multiple-port charging station” and compared to the Quntis 65W 5-Port Smart PD USB Charging Station, the disparity in quality is far apart. The one made by Quntis not only looks better in terms of design but also feels better. You can easily tell the difference based on the type of materials used as well as the build/construction of the product.
COMPATIBILITY & PERFORMANCE
Quntis 65W 5-Port Smart PD USB Charging Station features 2 USB-C ports and 3 USB-A ports, making it compatible with a wide array of devices. Please note that each USB port has designated minimum/maximum input & output voltage and to avoid confusion, each USB port is labeled accordingly.
Check out the image below to get an idea about the compatibility of the individual USB ports.
The Quntis 65W 5-Port Smart PD USB Charging Station has 5 separate USB ports, and it’s tempting to use all of them at the same time. However, be advised that using all ports simultaneously can have an effect on the maximum voltage output for each port. Please refer to the chart below to get a better idea of how to get the right charging voltage and have optimal use of the charging station.
As I have mentioned earlier, I tested the Quntis 65W 5-Port Smart PD USB Charging Station on various devices, ensuring that each port was utilized.
Based on the tests that I did, I can confirm that the unit provided the right charge/voltage based on the chart posted above. Here are some screenshots I took during one of the tests I did. This is with the Galaxy A50 and Galaxy S20 FE using the C1 and C2 ports.
I also tested it on my eldest son’s Galaxy Book S which has a USB-C charger (I believe it’s a 45W charger). During the test, the device had 70% battery remaining. When I plugged it in using the default USB-C charger, it showed the time remaining to being fully charged was 1 hour.
When I switched it to the C1 port on the Quntis 65W 5-Port Smart PD USB Charging Station, the time to being fully charged dropped down to 41 minutes (65W). I tried on the C2 port, and the time to being fully charged became 51 minutes (45W).
I also like how the detachable base support that comes with the product, not only keeps the charging station secure but also works as a device stand. You can use it as a stand for your mobile phone or tablet to watch videos while charging it. I tried on the Nintendo Switch and while it was able to hold the device, you won’t be able to use the Switch because its USB-C port is underneath (see photo above).
Here are a few additional tips to help you get the most out of the charging station:
- Only use original cable or certified cables (MFi certified).
- Do not place the charging station in an enclosed space while charging.
- Do not place any electronics that give off heat on top of the charging station.
- The charging station does not support simultaneous charging for 2 laptops.
Some additional things to take note of. If you are charging multiple devices and you happen to connect or disconnect one of them, expect one or the rest of the connected devices to get disconnected. This is due to the Intelligent Power Allocation feature, connecting/disconnecting a device (while charging multiple devices) will cause other devices to abruptly disconnect. The device will redistribute the electric current and reconnect automatically so you don’t have to do anything.
For some reason, a specific USB port may not charge or work properly. This can be caused by the device’s internal safety switch. To reset, unplug all cables including the charging station’s power cable, wait for 5 minutes and try again.
Since this product is available via Amazon, I compared the price with other similar products listed on Amazon. Based on the search results, with an MSRP of $48.99 CAD or $39.99 US, the Quntis 65W 5-Port Smart PD USB Charging Station is the cheapest product I found that offers both 65W and PD charging and has at least 5 USB ports. While some products have more than 5 USB ports, they only offer up to 40W or 45W.
Aside from its nice quality and design, I like the Quntis 65W 5-Port Smart PD USB Charging Station because it allows me to declutter my desk or workstation. With its 5 USB ports, I can use it to charge various devices without having to worry about using different chargers and cables or using up all the outlets on my CyberPower ST425 Standby UPS System.
The build quality is great, and the material used is high-grade and not flimsy. You don’t have to worry about it falling apart or breaking down easily.
Another thing worth considering is its price. As I have mentioned earlier, this product is the cheapest charging station you can find on Amazon (as of this writing) that offers all the following: 65W, PD charging, and 5 USB ports.
Based on the quality, affordability, and my experience with this product, I can confidently and honestly recommend it to everyone who’s looking for a multi-port desktop charging station.
