Great form factor.
4 ports that works surprisingly well and does what it exactly is supposed to do.
My new iPhone 14 pro with the lightning cable and this monster? Fully charged from 5% in under an hour. Great purchase for those with a good amount of electronics, so sturdy is stays put wherever you place it, has a nice clean design to keep desks looking minimal and clean, great purchase for anyone.
Works great very happy with it, Recommend...
First off, let me say I used to buy Anker products so when it came time for me to replace some of my chargers, I went to go look at their products. Unfortunately, Anker doesn't make products like these anymore. Instead, they seem to focus on other products -- like a big battery that I can wheel around the house or a small chargers that only has a few ports and sticks out from the outlet. I suppose I could have gotten their 120w 4 port USB-C model, but I still needed at least 1 USB-A port.
I needed something that would sit in place that would charge my iPad tablet, two iPhones, and a clock powered over USB-A. While this fits my needs today, It would have been nice if I had one or two more ports "just in case" but for now, this is enough.
The unit is about the size of a hockey puck, but squared and not rounded. If I wanted to, I could travel with it pretty easily. It's got a removable cord that uses a standard 2 pin connector (not sure if that's the right term), and I tested it on both 110v and 220v. According to UGreen, it handle up to 240v. From opening the box, to looking at the unit, you can tell they are trying to go for a "premium" feel, and it does deliver in that regard, but that's not important if it doesn't do the job, right?
According to UGreen, this charger is that it can fast charge my iPad pro as well as my iPhone using the Apple Magsafe charger even with all 4 ports being used. I haven't verified the voltages personally so that's something on my to-do list, however I can say that it does charge all my devices w/out any issues.
Would I buy it again? Sure. As a matter of fact, I bought their 100w version that has 3 USB-C/1 USB-A ports to use as my charger for my notebook + phone/other devices when I need to be on the go.
When guests visit our home locating chargers for their devices is no longer an issue. The UGreen USB C charging station makes charging any device possible. It’s sleek and slim design allows quick connections for iPads, iPhones, Androids, tablets and even a few laptops. It’s nice to be able offer this kind of peace of mind for my guests. Thanks UGREEN!
not a bullfrog.
This is an excellent charger, capable of 65W of total power output. I use it at my desk to charge my phone, power a wireless charger, and for misc. charging using the USB-A port.
The power distribution on this charger is excellent, meaning that with three ports used (USB-C1, USB-C2, and USB-A1), I can charge my phone at full speed, power the wireless charger with the maximum wattage it can handle, and simultaneously charge other items at 15W.
A lot of chargers in the market don't split the power this way and waste wattage, this one doesn't.
I think this would also make a great addition to travel as you can plug it in with the 6ft cable, and have your charging ports easily accessible.
The build quality is excellent and the charger works exactly as advertised, and after almost a month of constant use, I can say with confidence that it will hold up to daily use with ease!
Charger is nicely sized for travel. Build quality is solid. The power cable is of high quality but I feel that it may be too thick for travel. So, I swop it with another travel charger I have.
I use this charger to charge my laptop & my iPhone. It works great & charges fast. I’d highly recommend this travel charger.
Feels of great quality
Stays in place well
Good quality ports
It can be quite slow on USB A, it doesn't reach it's full 25W rating
It fast charges my Pixel 2 XL pretty well. About 60% in an hour.
Sadly the USB A charging doesn't seem to be working right on my devices. It only reaches about 5 Watts of power, rather than the full 25W rating.
The device itself feels quite hefty and of good quality. Ports aren't too tight unlike some other chargers. It being on a cable is very nice, rather than being attached directly to the wall.
Quality charging station by UGREEN. Honestly, I've only had one other UGREEN product in the past so I wasn't sure what to expect from this charging station. It does not disappoint!
It feels pretty nice in the hand and is quite compact. Perfect for traveling IF it had come with a case. However, with the price, I feel like that might be asking a little bit too much. It's light enough to just throw into a backpack without you noticing added weight and durable enough to withstand any bouncing that may happen while it's in transit.
Runs 2 USB-C ports at 65W and 2 USB-A ports at 22.5W. This is going to charge your devices and it's going to charge them fast!
UGREEN is well on its' way to the top tier of electronic items on Amazon for me!
Silicon semiconductors, like those historically used in cell phone chargers, are not 100% efficient and expend some input power as heat. GaN (Gallium Nitride) semiconductors are more efficient than silicon, generating less waste heat, and operating faster as well. This newer GaN technology is now displacing silicon-based chargers and UGreen is one of the major manufacturers producing GaN multiport chargers. To be fair, the advantages of GaN do not justify throwing away perfectly good, functioning silicon-based devices, but it does make sense to take advantage of the improved performance of GaN when buying a new charger.
This UGreen device is very small and light, and the 2-meter-long electric cord makes it easy to place the charger on a desktop for easy port access. Build-quality appears to be very high. Of course, the major benefit of this UGreen charger is that it has four ports for charging multiple USB-A and USB-C devices at the same time. These ports have fairly high power output (65W USB-C and 22.5W USB-A) to maximize charging rates for connected devices.
The old USB-A style power blocks for iPhone charging were not always capable of providing the maximum Wattage the phone could use for charging. For example, the iPhone 11 shipped with charging blocks that were rated at just 5Watts, even though the phone was capable of charging more rapidly if connected to a larger power supply. If one were to use a high-output charger, the iPhone 11 could charge at its maximum rate, known as “quick-charging” [Note that iPhone 11 circuitry controls its power-draw to a maximum of 18W]. I can attest that many iPhone 11’s are still in service, and users can benefit from using quick-charging.
Devices like the iPad 6 came with an 18W power block for charging and would take about 3.5 hours to obtain a full charge. If one were to connect the iPad to the 5W iPhone charger, the iPad would still charge but the charging cycle would take roughly 3 times longer – and the 5W power block would typically become hot. Because the under-powered charger still “worked”, it was not always obvious to the average user why their iPad was suddenly so slow to recharge.
High-output devices, such as this UGreen charger can be used, for example, with both the iPhone and the iPad to assure they charge at their maximum rate. I tested the UGreen charger with my iPad 6 (see video) as it was conveniently in need of a full charge: it took about 3.5 hours to charge the iPad, indicating that the iPad was able to draw the full 18W it needed from the UGreen charger (this also provides some assurance that the UGreen charger is providing something close to the claimed 22.5W from its USB-A port).
I also briefly connected an iPhone to the UGreen charger and quickly increased the charge on it as well, although it was nearly fully charged to start. I have not tested the USB-C charging ports yet. Overall, this seems to be a very good multiport charger and will be a useful addition to my desktop.
I have been using UGreen products for a long time, and they have always delivered superior quality and performance. This 65W charger is certainly no exception.
Premium build quality. Durable finish and strong sturdy power cord. Reinforced USB ports means they won't go "wonky" after a few months' use. Great thermal performance means it won't get too hot overnight and burn the house down.
This can charge just about anything with a USB charging port. It can charge phones, gaming consoles, laptops, Chromebooks. You name it; this charger can charge it.
It can deliver up to 65W of charging power, but it can also scale down automatically to charge smaller devices. And, best of all, you can charge up to 4 devices at the same time.
This charger is not the cheapest, but it is price competitive compared to chargers for Chromebooks or laptops, and also provides the added bonus of being able to charge almost any USB chargeable device. With that in mind, this is indeed an excellent value.
Build Quality - 5/5 Great materials, nice finish, should last for years.
Charging Performance - 5/5 First rate. Charges as fast as your device will support.
Thermal Performance - 5/5 Stays cool and doesn't get too hot.
Ease of Use - 5/5 Just plug it in. Set it and forget it.
Value for Money - 5/5 Super value when you consider build quality and variety of use cases.
Overall Score - 5/5 Excellent product and value (as usual from UGreen)
I like the idea of have a AC cable so the brick doesn't have to be hanging on the wall, which might fall down due to its weight or old socket. Power output is indeed advertise for each port.
I love this charger. It is small and has rubber feet to lay flat without scratching the table top and they also keep it from moving around on the table and falling off when trying to plug or unplug things. It has both USB-A and C ports so it can charge the newer stuff with the C connectors and the older stuff with the A connectors. It has a cord long enough to plug into the wall or power strip a few feet away. And finally, it supports enough power to charge several items at once. I'm using it on a night stand to power an alarm clock and charge a phone and tablet and it does the job nicely without taking up much space.
Not sure what happened with this charging station as the brand has a pretty good reputation for reliability, but out of the box, this one doesn't work at all. Pretty sad about it because it looks beautiful and seemed pretty high quality with its metal casing, nice heft, and great finish. I'm using the included plug on a known working outlet, and have tried 10+ different devices on every port with no charging occurring at all. I hooked up a wattage meter inline with its plug and it shows no power being drawn at all. Maybe it's just an off chance that I got a defective one but I can't recommend at all like this.
The wife needed a dual charger for her iPhone and her iWatch, so we needed a dual USB-C charger with the proper charge rating. This unit has that but also include two regular USB plugs for outher outlets.
The unit itself is solid, heavy for its size (indicating a powerful transformer), with rubberized feet, and it includes a heavy-duty 120v cable, similar to what a desktop PC comes with.
It's still a new unit, so how long it lasts is anybody's guess, but the product's build quality is easily five-star.
I have found myself in a constant need of portable and multiple port solutions lately. This little guy met my expectations. The box is big but when I saw how small and portable the device actually is that really hyped me up.
Not all USB chargers are the same. Most of the cheaper ones are not very powerful and lack enough power delivery to power a laptop or multiple moderately power hungry devices. This one is priced between the cheap under powered USB adapter, and the typical laptop adapter, and has more in common with the more expensive end of that range. At 65W, this will work with a low power laptop. It’s not enough to power a high end i9 with nvidia graphics, but it will power that chromebook, lg gram, or macbook air just fine. In my case I picked up this adapter to power my collection of mini-arcades. These units are known to have issues with underpowered USB power sources, and this charger handled all three of them together with no issues. A very solid adapter for a quite reasonable price.
This is a great desktop charger - keep it plugged in at your desk and you have 4 ports that you can use in any way you need. Do you need to quick charge a USB-C laptop (up to 65W)? Just plug in a USB-C to USB-C single cable and off you go. Do you need to charge a few phones or smaller electronics? You can use USB-C or USB-A ports to charge up to 4 devices at once. Have a random USB-A to something charger? Well, you can power it regardless of the wattage. That's a lot of flexibility in one small box!
Ugreen has been producing solid charging products for a few years now (and other accessories too!) and this is another great one. With a convenient cord to place the desktop charger wherever you want (you can also take this on the go with you, though it's a little less convenient than a "wall wart" because you do need the cord) and super flexibility with lots of different splits of the available 65W (this is 65W TOTAL, which can be through one port or split among multiple ports), this is a great charger to have around and a great price to boot. Pair it with a selection of cables and you'll be ready for anything!
Highly recommended if you have multiple items that charge over USB - and who doesn't these days!
My wife and I love Ugreen chargers and this one is no exception. Since we already had the 200W version of this charger, we jumped at the opportunity to get this 65W version when we needed another one for the house. The design makes a great "base station" for all kinds of devices and the charging is powerful and reliable. I have no complaints about this 65W implementation of this brick design. GaN charging has really taken over the space and become the new tech that everyone should be using for their chargers
After owning 2 of their chargers and a few of their cables, I consider Ugreen to be on par with Anker as far as quality goes. And that is very nice :)
Space saver for my desk area. The charging station is small and not bulky. It does not take much room which is good for my small office space area. It works very well. It charges fairly quickly and can hook up more of my devices and have them all in one area, rather that scattered all over the room. I also like that I can take this with me when I travel because it is compact size.

My important feature for a travel charger is being able to charge multiple devices simultaneously. Previous multi-chargers were confusing to use given that I would forget how much power was supplied by each port. In this case, the symbols on the charger will keep me straight and the fact that more devices are using usb-C. Reading through this instructions, it will be hard to remember the output with different types of devices plugged in.
I plan on keeping it simple, my first use case will be that I will only plug in my laptop or Chromebook into the C1 port. The other case will be just my iPad in the C1 port and either one or two iPhones in the A1 and A2 ports. I figure you can plug in whatever you want and the charger will adjust the output based on the instructions, but I would like to avoid that guesswork.

As more devices go to USB-C for charging, I like having a charger that can handle both A and C connections. This one fits the bill in a small package. So far I've only had an iPhone, iPad and headphones connected at the same time and it charged all without getting hot. I prefer having a regular power cable vs the wall wart type devices due to flexibility in placement.
I chose this because while I have plenty of charging bricks that plug right into the wall and work well, this one is corded, which means I can use it to make a not-so-convenient outlet accessible. I use this plugged in behind a tall dresser and the cord is long enough that the charger can sit on top so we can easily charge our phones, ipads, macbook, and insulin pump. It works well and is well made. For travel, I prefer the uncorded kind so I don't have to waste space with a cord but for a more permanent spot, I think this is perfect and I'm ordering another one of these so I can add powered charging to the desktop of an old office/computer armoire.
I ordered this because I needed a desktop power brick that can charge multiple devices at once. At minimum, since this is a 65 watt desktop charger, I was anticipating being able to Super Fast Charge at least two Samsung phones, a Galaxy Z Fold 4 & Galaxy S22 Ultra, using the USB-C ports. This wasn't quite the case with this charger brick.
Per the product instructions, based on the configuration of using both USB C charge ports, at least one device should Super Fast Charge, and the second device Fast Charge. Based on Samsung OEM specifications, Super Fast Charging will happen starting at 25 watts of power. Any wattage available that's less than that, will charge at the Fast Charging specification of 15 Watts.
This was not the case with this power brick charger. When I plugged in a single device in the USB-C port, it will charge at the Super Fast Charging protocol, but when you connect a second device to the second USB-C port, the 1st device, that was already connected, will low charging speeds from Super Fast Charging to Fast Charging and the second USB-C device will charge at Fast Charging. Both USB-C ports will charge at Super Fast Charging speeds if you use only one port or the other, but not together.
When I'm plugging the second usb-c device, the first usb-c device will switch back to super fast charging. When plugging in the second device into the USB 3.0 port along with the USB-C port device, the first device will switch from super fast charging to fast charging and the second device will charge at regular 5 Watt slow trickle charging speeds.
If you plug in just one device in the USB 3.0 port, with nothing else plugged in charging, this port will charge the device at Fast Charging speeds. But the moment that you add a second device to charge at the same time to The brick then the USB 3 port will only charge at 5W trickle charge speeds.
According to the instruction manual, you should be able to charge a minimum of three devices, one Super Fast Charging and the other two at Fast Charging speed protocol. That is not correct. When plugging in three devices, one will charge at Fast Charging speed of 15W and the remaining two will trickle charge at 5 Watts each.
I'm giving this three stars because I ordered this with the anticipation of being able to plug in multiple devices and at least one of them Super Fast Charging while the others would be Fast Charging. I'm glad that I can at least Super Charge one device.

It's a very good charging adapter, and the long cord means I can easily keep in up on my desk, would behind my monitor and tucked in with other organized cables. Comes in really nice looking retail packaging too.
I wanted to eliminate a power strip for all my devices. This did the trick and worked well. The packaging was great. It was able to power my watch, smartphone, and Ipad with no issues.
Good value, good product. I needed to charge a couple of devices without attaching them to my comptuer, and this works like a charm. There's enough juice to charge everything at a good rate - it's enough to charge my laptop, even!
I bent another USB cable using a standard charging brick so I decided to try something completely different. This power supply has a cord that allows you to place the charger wherever you want it. It will charge my computer, phone, keyboard, mouse all at the same time.
so i got this cause i have two smart phones and both need high power type c plugs well this fit the bill and gives me the ability to charge 2 other devices as well love it i can charge my phones watch and headphones now all at once
Love that it has a great charging time for multiple items. I can leave cords on the charging unit and not misplace them. If you are like me I'm always looking for the power unit to plug the wall this eliminates this issue for 4 items.
