A QC 3 USB C port? Doesn't that mean it's out of spec?

Exactly, though these are two different and separate chargers. Why can't we get a USB-A QC4.0 and USB-IF C and Huawei proprietary fast charger ports, all in one car charger. Lol. These incompatibilities are driving me insane.

The code worked for the 3 port for me and I was about to purchase but then I saw looking at the pics of the reviews and appears that there have been some that have burnt or melted. I am not wanting to take the chance to burn up a new phone so I'm not going to buy it.

Not necessarily. QC 3.0 allows for 5V@3A, which meets a USB PD Power Rule. I have personally test several different models of phones with USB-C ports and every single one has charged at 15W on various QC 3.0 chargers.

That said, those were all with USB-A to USB-C cables, not C-to-C. I suppose it's possible that using an all-C cable would reduce the draw, but I don't know why that would be the case when A-to-C will successfully negotiate 15W.

My guess is a USB-C, PD-compliant phone will negotiate the highest PD-standard amperage at 5V that it can, since 5V is standard for any USB cable and any cable with USB-C is supposed to support a minimum of 3A. That would give you the 15W, which will charge your phone at a decently fast pace.

These multi-port chargers aren't worth the money for me, though. All of my phones use USB-C and so those 2.4A ports will be reduced to 1.5A giving you only 7.5W. That's not going to give you very fast charging. I have two power ports in each of my cars, so I'd rather have two separate, low-profile, single-port QC 3.0 chargers so two phones can charge quickly.

Meeting a single rule doesn't mean it's compliant

I don't recall saying that it was compliant, I simply pointed out that it meets a PD Power Rule spec and so will mostly likely negotiate a compliant charging rate.

It's just semantics if a person claims to care if it charges at 15W because it's PD-compliant or because it simply negotiated the rate using PD rules as a guideline. 15W is 15W. The overwhelming majority of people could not care less why it's 15W (or even understand what 15W means) as long as their phone charges quickly. And all I'm saying is that it will almost certainly charge at 15W.

I know they don't care, but they should. They probably will when a noncompliant $10 device damages their $300-$800 device.

And yes, you did imply compliance by quoting me and then saying "Not really..."

If you are going to say something, at least try to make sure it's somewhat factual so you can stand by it, instead of turning around and claiming something else entirely

Yikes. What you think I said is even wrong, and all you had to do was take 2 seconds to scroll up to make sure you didn't sound stupid.

It's obvious you're having trouble reading, so I'm going to help you out. Slow down, take a deep breath, and maybe you'll learn something new Smilie

Specifications and standards are two different things. 5V@3A meets PD specifications, which is not the same as saying the charger adheres to or enforces PD standards. I said that the charger was "not necessarily" out of spec, referring to the fact that the QC 3.0 charging rate of 5V@3A meets a PD Power Rule. These are all facts.

You're the one who confused standards and specifications. I sympathize; the words are very similar and your knowledge of the subject clearly extends only so far as a 10-second Google search. Someone once told me "If you are going to say something, at least try to make sure it's somewhat factual so you can stand by it, instead of turning around and claiming something else entirely". Words of wisdom. You should consider them carefully and think before you type next time.

I'm tempted to get the 3-port version which has a single USB-C port and two QC 3.0 ports but some of the recent reviews about burning/melted cables are concerning.

+1. i've read quite a few reviews on various aukey products about melting ports. one was a 3 port home charger which i bought, it's been working fine for almost a year. however, this 3 port car charger i'll probably skip, don't wanna ruin my wife's iphone x, i'll just tell her to stick with slow charging.
