BlitzWolf 5-port USB Desktop Charger review

Charge up to five devices at one time, including one with Quick Charge 3.0.

Pretty much every portable gadget we have today requires some sort of occasional recharging. Whether it’s multiple phones in the family, or a gaming controller, or tablet, we find ourselves unplugging one device to plug in another. It’s time to get smart about things; it’s time to make better use of the wall outlets.

One device that does such a thing is the BlitzWolf 5-port desktop charger. As the name implies, it takes one wall outlet and turns it into five USB ports. Certified by Qualcomm, it provides Quick Charge 3.0 capability in one of its ports. Moreover, the other four ports also allow for 5V/2.4A output so that means they’re pretty darn fast, too.

We’ve had one of these in our office for the last couple of weeks and have come to really appreciate it. Rather than getting behind the desk and filing cabinet to plug and unplug various devices, we’ve put the BlitzWolf in place. The cord is roughly four feet long so there is plenty of length to put in on the desk. Now, all we do is plug in the various cables when we need to.

  • QC3.0 mode: Variable 3.6V-12V with 200mV incremental dynamic regulation
  • QC2.0 mode: Stepped 5v/2.4A ,9V/2A and 12V/1.5A . Rated at 18W but can peak at up to 12V/2A~24W.
  • Standard Fast 4.4A Mode: 5V/4.4A. Rated at 22W.

With five ports to play with in total, we’ve taken to leaving a handful of cables dangling back behind the printer. Whenever we need something charged, we reach back and plug it in. And, because they’re relatively fast, we don’t have to stay at the desk for long.

Our main desk is glass so the tiny rubber boots on the bottom of the charger stick very well. Tucked out of the way, it stays put whenever we plug in or remove a cable. The rubber grips also work well on most other materials, too.

The charger travels extremely well, thanks to both its small stature and Velcro cord wrap. It takes all of ten seconds to pull this one apart and wrap the cord up for tossing in a bag or suitcase.

Unlike most tech gadgets and accessories, the BlitzWolf comes with an 18-month warranty. And, lest you think it adds to the cost of the unit, we’d like to point out that it’s only $23.99.

The BlitzWolf charger not only supports Quick Charge 3.0 fast charge technology, but is backwards compatible with all previous versions (1.0, 2.0 & 3.0). Yes, it is also fully compatible with USB Type-C cables and can also provide standard charging for non-Quick Charge devices.
