USB Charging

Battery charging over USB has become a standard practice but the actual charging behavior of different devices is often unpredictable and sometimes disappointing. The devices themselves decide how much current to draw and manufacturers haven’t settled on a single standard. We constantly test our products with as many different devices as possible and publish the results so it’s easy to determine the charging behavior to expect from your device on each of our USB products. These are the results for the devices we’ve tested on this charger so far.

For hubs, "Hosted" means the hub is attached to a host computer that is powered on. "Unhosted" means just the opposite, that the hub isn't attached to a host computer, or that the host computer is turned off. This doesn't apply to stand-alone chargers that only plug in to a wall outlet.

The "Estimated Charging Time" column is the minimum amount of time that the device would take to charge if it was fully drained. This is just an estimate! We provided this to give a general idea of the expected charge time. If this column is blank for a device, that means that the device indicated that it wasn't charging. In this case, even if the device is drawing power, it will likely either "tread water" keeping the battery at a constant level, or slowly lose ground.


How can I tell if protection is working?
The red “Protected” light on the surge protector illuminates to indicate when protection is working.

What does the “Grounded” light mean?
The green “Grounded” light indicates that the outlet the surge protector is plugged into has a safe path to ground. If the “Protected” light comes on, but the “Grounded” light does not, please have a qualified electrician check the outlet. A disconnected ground can be very dangerous.

How do I turn off the lights?
The all-in-one power/circuit breaker switch will switch off the lights when in the off position.

Can I turn off just the light and leave the surge protector on?
The “Protected” and “Grounded” lights do not have a separate switch. Turning off the device is necessary to turn off those lights.
