Our Best USB Charger Just Got Better, The New Plugable Power 2015 USB-C5TX 5-Port USB Smart Charger

Last year we released our USB-C5T 5 port smart charger and it’s been a great success, but we set out to make it even better. New for 2015 is the Plugable USB-C5TX.

The C5TX, unlike its predecessor, has smart charging on all 5 of its USB ports and an integrated (and more powerful) power supply to charge the most demanding devices. It was important to us to eliminate the need to decide which port to connect a device to by making all 5 ports equally compatible. We also wanted to make the charger as compact and portable as possible, so we ditched the external power brick and installed a built-in power supply that uses the same standard detachable AC power cable (IEC 60320 C7, included) as many common consumer electronics devices. The power supply accepts 100-240V at 50/60Hz, so it can be used in any country around the world (with appropriate AC outlet adapter/cable).

With so many devices from daily life capable of charging from USB, why waste valuable AC outlets by using a separate AC adapter for each one? The C5TX is the perfect all-in-one universal USB smart mutli-charger for charging most cell phones, tablets, USB battery packs, handheld game consoles, e-readers, e-cigarettes, cameras, smart watches, fitness trackers, bicycle lights, and more.

To maximize device compatibility, each USB port is equipped with its own individual smart-charging chipset that tries to identify the device connected and choose the best charging mechanism to provide the fastest charge possible. Some devices, like the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, charge even faster with the C5TX than with their bundled power adapters. Each USB port can charge a device at up to 2.4A, with an impressive 8A, 40W total to share between all 5 ports. That is more than enough power to charge 3 iPads and 2 iPhones at the same time.

    You know, I’m ordering one of these because it sounds like exactly what I’m looking for. Honestly, I’d have ordered it sooner if there was a 7 port variation. Though I suppose I won’t have all of my devices plugged in at once.
