The iXCC iPhone charger station features high current (2.1 amp) charging from two of its four ports at the same time for a total of 30 watts power output. Thus, you can charge as many as two power hungry tablet computers or phones together. The other two ports can deliver medium USB charging current (1.0 amp).
This iXCC iPhone charger is built from solid white plastic, has rounded corners, sports a well-insulated and removable power cable, and is roughly the same size as a deck of playing cards. The AC cord has a polarized plug for added safety.
The iXCC iPhone charger clears out as many as three of the outlets on your power strips. How? It replaces up to four of those old-fashioned “wall wart” chargers. It converts one 120-volt outlet into four medium and high current USB sockets. This eliminates the need for those single-device chargers.
At roughly $20 per copy, the price is okay by today’s standards, for the convenience of running a single charger to power up to four smartphones, tablets, iPads, and Androids. But you must know which ports are the higher current ones to charge a large tablet, speaker, or other current-hungry device. If you plug these devices into the 1.0 amp ports, they will either charge more slowly than usual, or they’ll not charge fully.
Benefits, Features, Pros, and Advantages of this iXCC® iPhone Charger
Attractive, hi-tech looking case, with feet, to reduce skidding and sliding off of tables, shelves, and such.
Thus, you plug the female end into the charger only one way, and the male end only plugs into the AC outlet one way. User safety is better thus. Why? Because any exposed metal will likely sit at ground potential, assuming that your polarized AC outlet is wired the right way.

Have tested the iXCC iPhone charger with the 1st generation iPod Touch, iPad Air, and Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 tablets. All of these charged rapidly. No overheating of the box itself was detected.
Tight Plug Fittings
The USB ports really grab inserted plugs. They stay put.
The iXCC iPhone Charger Station Offers Efficient Operation
Not much heat generated inside or out of the iXCC iPhone charger. The case stays just warm to the touch, even when charging four thirsty USB devices. Neither did any fans start up inside. The unit kept its cool without any fans. Amazing, given its scantly vented case.
Easy to Grab AC Plug
The 120-volt plug is small-to-normal in size. So, it covers up just one outlet space in even the smallest power strips. The AC cord takes away the real size of the charger from the plug area itself.

Low Profile Design on the iXCC iPhone Charger Station
No controls to add complexity to the unit.
Does not hang from a wall outlet, unlike the “wall wart” chargers of the past. The power cable allows the supply box itself to rest on the floor, well away from the AC outlet.

Accepts Many Standard Mains Voltages
Input: 120-240 volts.
Disadvantages, Problems, Limitations, and Cons of the iXCC iPhone Charger
Open USB Ports
No covers for the USB ports when not in use. So dust can build up in them, causing faulty charging. Thus, another reason for operating this iPhone charger by iXCC® in low dust, dry areas.
USB Charge Cables not Included
The iXCC charger comes with no USB cables.
Non Identical USB Ports
Since two ports power high current devices, and the other two 1.0 amp, medium current devices, make sure to plug your device into the right sized port for fastest charging. We prefer chargers that offer the same currents on all their ports.
Warnings and Cautions for the iXCC iPhone Charger
To get high current charging out of this iXCC iPhone charger, you’ll need USB cables that carry 2.1 amps (high current cables). Very thin or extra long cables might not do the job.
Note that high current capability does not mean faster charging times on any device; just those devices that draw and it when charging.
This is an indoor device. So keep it away from heat, rain, humidity, and vibration in order to maximize its life. Avoid places where liquids spill often. The vented case would let in liquids, causing perhaps permanent damage to the charger.
Being that this iXCC iPhone charger uses a switching power supply design, it could interfere with nearby radios, TVs, and computing devices. If that occurs, move it away from affected devices.
Our Rating on the iXCC iPhone Charger
The iXCC® 30w 4 USB iPhone charging station is small, yet hefty, though it’s harder to find these days on Amazon and eBay. Costs too little to worry much about a warranty. So we rate this in-home charger at 94 out of 100. Hard to beat this as among the best mobile phone chargers on the market today.
