Because an independent electrical engineer tested their products? They've LITERALLY been tested against existing charging standards for safety and effectiveness. As for the company, Anker is one of, if not the largest, 3rd party accessory manufacturer on Amazon for a reason. Anker was founded by an ex-Google employee with the goal of making good quality accessories. Are they made in China? Of course. Literally, ALL electronics are, 1st or 3rd party. However, that doesn't mean that all products are created equal. Anker takes special care to only brand quality. Anker even supplies Nintendo's officially licensed power-banks for the Switch, a console with an unorthodox charging standard.

If you want to take the risk on unknown and untested accessories, go for it. You'll normally be fine anything non-power drawing. But when it comes to charging and power standards, you might want to invest a couple of extra dollars on a more trusted brand.

"Unofficial" might be the wrong word. Failing to meet standard specifications would be a more accurate description of the problem being described.

In short, not all USB-C cables and products are created equal, due in no small part by the lack of a single, definitive power standard leading to the use of incorrect resistors and poor quality materials. This problem was so pervasive and potentially damaging that Benson Leung, a Chromebook engineer, took it upon himself to review USB-C charging cables to make sure they were designed to spec and wouldn't damage devices if used for charging.

So, all that said, it is not in your best interest to buy cheap knock-off USB-C products, ESPECIALLY if you're going to use it for charging. Anker has a proven track record for quality in this area, having historically proven to produce well-designed and more importantly well-engineered accessories.

But hey, you do you. We wouldn't want to "make you stupid." Just don't cry if you short out your $2000 laptop.

Don't buy unofficial USB C products. That's just asking for trouble. Now, I didn't thoroughly investigate that product you linked but it aesthetically looks like POS.

I assume that you need to buy an additional charger to use this as 60 W power delivery.

It says it's not compatible on their product page. But I am curious if it will work with the new padOS software.

Some of the reviews state it works well with the latest iPad Pro. Since it was released after the iPad Pro 2018, I'd assume It works with that model.

You plug in your normal USB C charging cord. It provides pass-through charging, meaning you don't give up one of your ports for charging while using it.

I'm betting it'll be cheaper on prime day, but just in case, I grabbed the 7-in-1. Thanks OP.

in case anyone missed it, the title says power delivery, starting at $16.99, but only the $17.99 4in1 or $19.99 5in1 do PD.

also FYI, the newer 7in1 one has TWO USB-C ports, one for power, one for data. more expensive at $44.99 though, and supposedly is very power hungry itself @ 20w:

edit: they're pretty awesomely forthcoming about how much the adapters themselves draw. all of them draw around 13-17 watts themselves, so you're left with a max charge of around 45w, which may or may not be enough for you.

Would this work as a USB hub for the switch with the passthrough?
