Tronsmart’s latest USB Type-C and Quick Charge 3.0 wall charger works with the LG G5 and the Nexus 6P (Review)

Have a device that is compatible with USB Type-C? One of the biggest annoyances you have to deal with is having two types of cables. MicroUSB and Type-C are the latest standards in charging among Android devices, and the manufacturers are not in agreement on a single charger yet.

Google’s latest devices, the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X support USB Type-C while Samsung’s latest Galaxy S7 and S7 edge only support microUSB with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 even though the Snapdragon 820 supports Quick Charge 3.0.

Yeah it is all really confusing. It’s even a bit annoying that no one can agree on what charging standard to use. The ones who suffer are the consumers like you and me. What’s even more confusing is that there are complications with Type-C chargers and cables. Incompatible cables and chargers can fry your devices.

Leave it to Tronsmart, a fully Qualcomm certified manufacturer of chargers, to save the day with its latest dual USB Type-C and USB Type-A Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 charger to simplify matters. I had a chance to review it and realized it is the last charger I need until these manufacturers sort out what standard they’re going to use.



Tronsmart is one of the few third party manufacturers of chargers I trust with my devices. They have always made high quality products with the certifications to back its products.


The latest USB Type-C and USB Type-A dual port wall charger follows the lines of its heritage and is another well built device. It is a small power cube made from high quality plastic, that has foldable metal prongs that can be hidden away when traveling. It has two USB ports:

  • USB Type A with Volt IQ – Output:5V/3A (Max). Smart detect technology patented by Tronsmart, offers the fastest charging speed for non-Type C devices. This will not “fast charge” devices with Type-C.
  • USB Type-C port – Supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 5-6.5V/3.0A, 6.5-9V/2.0A, 12V/1.5A(Max).

Take note that USB Type A to USB Type-C does not support fast charging. Only USB Type-C to USB Type-C supports the latest in fast charging technology. This charger is perfect if you have devices with both MicroUSB as well as Type-C. You can grow with this charger when you upgrade your device as it has the latest in charging technology.



The Tronsmart dual USB charger is impressive. It’s extremely well built and is perfect for those who bring chargers with them on the go. I am definitely a suer who swaps between USB Type-C and microUSB as I am constantly switching phones. Having to go back and forth is actually really annoying. And needing to bring two chargers with me at all times gets old fast.

Tronsmart’s latest charger solves the problem of needing two bring two chargers with me.


There has been much news surrounding Type-C third party chargers and cables not being compatible with current devices. Naturally it concerns me to use chargers that could fry my phones and I avoid them to the best of my ability. Tronsmart is one of the few third party manufacturers I trust to charge my devices and they have never let me down. Its latest charger is fully compatible with my Nexus 5X and 6P, LG V10 and will be the goto charger I use for my Samsung S7 edge I have on pre-order.

Being a charger there isn’t much excitement over how I use it, but I do use it for everything and have been for over a month now. I haven’t run into one single issue with it and Tronsmart delivered on every level.


At just $21.99 on, the Tronsmart dual USB A and C charger is an accessory you should strongly consider taking a look at.

Tronsmart is fully certified by Qualcomm as a trusted partner and is a great alternative to more pricey chargers made by Samsung, LG, and Huawei. It is fully compatible with the latest smartphones – the LG G5, LG V10, Nexus 6P and 5X, and the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.

  • Nexus 6P does not support Qualcomm’s QC 3.0 right?

      It does not. But it does support “fast charging” which works when you connect type- to type-c.
