PowerPort Speed PD 5 Charger REVIEW | MacSources

Efficient charger a great value for the user

I’m a firm believer that you can never have too many options to power your devices. I have kept nearly every power adapter I’ve ever received with an iPhone and have amassed a nice collection of third-party wall adapters since then. Since every important technology item I use is rechargeable, I like to make sure I have myself covered so that I never run out of power options. Even though individual power adapters are great when you only have to charge a single device, I like to have more diverse options like the PowerPort Speed PD 5. The charger is a premium 60W 5-port desktop charger that features four USB-A ports and one USB-C power delivery port. It’s ideal for adding into workspaces or taking on the road.


The PowerPort Speed PD 5 is designed to work with multiple types of devices. The USB-C port provides 30W of power delivery for larger items such as the Apple MacBook. The remaining four USB-A ports feature PowerIQ, a technology that intelligently recognizes devices so that the port can boost charging speeds without overcharging the connected device. Users have the option to charge five devices simultaneously while only using one wall outlet. The PowerPort Speed PD 5 has advanced safety features like surge protection and temperature control. It’s also incredibly durable thanks to its scratch-resistant and smudge-proof exterior. The device also has drop-protection built into it — so it’s an extra tough charger.
