Dual Port USB C Charger, AUKEY USB PD Charger 60W - Amazon $29.99

  • Dual port USB-C charger
  • Fast port can go up to 60W
  • When both ports are in use, slower port maxes out at 18W, and the fast port drops to 45W.
  • Combined maximum 63W

I have the Anker 60W dual port charger which will end up splitting 30W/30W when the second port is occupied, where 30W is not really charging my MacBook Pro fast enough, so this looks like a solid product based on the reviews.

Yes, that's because note 10+ uses power deliver 3.0, which adds PPS (programmable power supply). It's the only phone that uses it at this point. This charger and almost all other devices use power deliver 2.0. To be clear, the charge will still work for note 10+, just won't charge at max speed.

I got the last deal too and found some curious behavior, at least with mine:
If I plug in my MacBook Pro 15 into the proper port (USB-C to USB-C) without another cable in the 18W port, it charges at the full rate of almost 60W.

But if I plug in a USB-C to Lightning cable, WITHOUT plugging in a phone, the output to the laptop falls to approx 45W.

And if I plug in a phone, it drops to 0W while it renegotiates how to share power but it reverses polarity (i.e. the power direction is LEAVING my laptop at close to 0W), leaving my laptop not charging (this is despite my MacBook Pro showing its being charged in the OS). If I unplug my phone, sometimes it corrects itself and sometimes it stays in reserve polarity at 0W.

The main problem is this is completely invisible to you unless you're using a power meter to monitor the output to the laptop. This completely negates the usefulness of a smart charger that can share power between the ports.

Note: this behavior doesn't happen with my 45W USB-C battery and my iPhone XS. Just with my MacBook Pro 15 as far as I can tell. I've contacted support but they asked for time to get back after consulting an eng team.

I really wanted to love this one as it's the only charger I've found that can do 60W or 45W+18W so far. It's sleek and if it does what I needed, would have been a great deal. I'll test my RavPower 60W with one USB-C and one USB-A later but that may be a better option if you don't mind up to only 12W for your phone.

Have you tried two lower charging devices like two phones? I want to buy this for some photo gear (a gimbal and a light) and am curious if this only happens with a PD device like a laptop but not with non PD devices?

I only tested another PD device (a portable battery that takes 40W input) with my iPhone that can do 18W PD and it seemed like that was ok - there was no odd reverse polarity issue.

I can try to test it with my Osmo Mobile 3 but I'd have to drain it first as most PD devices only fast charge until about 70-80% to preserve the battery.

This is because USB C to Lightning cables are active cables, and they draw a small current without another device plugged in. Normal USB C cables do not.

As for the reverse polarity issue, I got no clue 👍

Thanks for the info! I suspected as much based on what I observed but didn't get a chance to Google to confirm. It's unfortunate though because I was hoping this could serve as a charging station for all of our iPhone/USB-C needs. It still serves 99% of our use cases since the MacBook Pro 15 is usually in the office anyway Smilie
