LAUT is a company who designs and manufactures smartphone accessories. Headquartered in Hamburg, Germany with offices in Hong Kong and USA, their catalogue are mostly accessories for iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, Samsung Galaxy S7/S8, like casings, cables, chargers, screen protectors. The iPhone casings are quite gorgeous, unfortunately I do not use iPhone. So when LAUT asked me to look for something to share with my readers, I picked the QUINT-X2 USB charger.
- AC 100-240V 50 / 60Hz 1A
- 1x Qualcomm™ Quick Charge 3.0 USB port, 3.6-6.5V 3A or 6.5-9V 2A or 9-12V 1.5A
- 3x USB-A ports, 5V 2.4A
- 1x 3.0 USB type-C port, 5V 3A
- Maximum 40W
The QUINT-X2 USB charger supports up to 5 concurrent devices with the 4 USB-A and 1 USB Type-C ports. Given the maximum power for the charger is 40W (where W = V x A), it will not be able to support all 5 devices charging at their maximum charging spec. I reckon LAUT is going for the most common scenario of charging 1 QC3.0 (18W), 1 standard USB at 2.4A (12W), and 2 standard USB at 1A (10W). That adds up to 40W.
The box is retail-friendly, with a magnetic flap to provide product information and a transparent window to reveal the ports. The Type-C USB port is not as common as the Qualcomm QuickCharge, but its inclusion makes QUINT-X2 the most comprehensive future-proof charger and one of the few USB chargers with it.
Over the weeks of using it, I find the QUINT-X2 charger does not heat up excessively. The ports have adequate tightness and the charge current consistent. The design is compact and lightweight, and I like that the AC cable is detachable and conforms to the standard 2-prong connector, so I can swap if it is broken.
