We’ve reviewed quite a few charging stations, but never one that offered four Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 ports and a USB-C port that supports Power Delivery 2.0 Quick charge. With the Oneadaptr EVRI USB-C Charging Station, you can charge your latest-gen iPhone or iPad Pro up to two or three times faster with a USB-C to Lightning cable.
Or you can use it to charge your phone, MacBook, tablet, and a friend’s phone and tablet at the same time. Life is all about choices, right?
Included in the package are the Oneadaptr EVRI USB-C Charging Station, a power cable, a USB-C to USB-C cable, a quick-start guide, and a holder that you can use if you prefer your peripherals standing at attention rather than lying down on the job.
The EVRI USB-C Charging Station uses the standard rectangular form we have seen in other multi-port chargers, but this one packs a larger punch. This one has 80W of power, so it can charge just about anything you care to plug into it — quickly! On the front, you’ll find the USB-C port followed by the four USB-A ports.
Why the Oneadaptr EVRI is so awesome
Unlike other charging hubs, the Oneadaptr EVRI doesn’t make you think out which device you will plug in where. Let me clarify; with other hubs, you might have a couple Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 ports and a couple of 1A ports.
When you’re plugging in a larger device, such as an iPad or iPad Pro, those 1A ports just aren’t going to give you the power needed to charge your tablet without waiting all night. For that, you need a 2.4A or better port, which is exactly what you get here … on every port. No more hunting for the “good” ports; they are all good.
On the back, there’s a port for the charging cable.
The included stand might come in handy if you need to keep the charging hub in a tight space. The EVRI measures 4.4″ wide by 3.9″ deep by 0.9″ thick, and it weighs just 8.7 ounces; it’s the perfect size to keep in your briefcase or backpack when traveling, but it’s just as at-home on your desk.
I’m using mine right now to charge my MacBook, iPad Pro, and a couple of phones; it’s marvelous. Of course, it’s got over current, over voltage, over temperature, and short-circuit protection, so you never have to worry that you are getting too much power sent to one of your less-consuming electronics.
Right now, the Oneadaptr EVRI is the charging station to beat.
The Oneadaptr EVRI 80W USB-C Charging Station retails for $74.99, and it is available directly from the manufacturer and all Best Buy Canada and Micro Center stores. You can expect them to be available from more retailers soon.
