How to Choose Charging Station for Apple devices?

25/11/2021

A charging station puts all your Apple devices in one, easy to access place for charging. Apple has built its own ecosystem in platform. It also creates unique features in charging that is different from Android devices. Therefore, there are something you have to look for specifically while purchasing an Apple charging station.

1. Power Delivery Ports

New MacBook, iPad and iPhone models (iPhone 8 or later) are benefit from fast charging technology, supported by USB-C Power Delivery (PD). PD delivers much higher levels of power, ranging from 18-watts to 100-watts through USB-C ports. Therefore, in order to charge your Apple devices quickly, you have to look for USB-C PD ports on a charging station. 


If not PD, you may find QC printed at the body of the charging station or at the specification table, remember Apple devices DO NOT support the QC (Quick Charge) standard. QC is a fast charging standard for some Android smartphone. 

2. Maximum Power Output For Difference Devices

Even though there are USB-C ports on the charging station, there is a chance that it is not maximizing the power output of your devices. Look for the maximum power output of the ports at the body or specification table of charging station. 


If you wish to charge a MacBook pro, look for a USB-C PD port with higher than 60W output; a MacBook Air with high than 30W output; the newest model after iPhone8, iPad, AirPods and Apple Watch with higher than 18W output.

3. Organizer for AirPods and Apple Watch

If you have Apple Watch and AirPods to charge, you may want to buy a charging station with the customized stand. Otherwise, it will loss the beauty of organizing, leaving all gadgets around the charging station instead of standing on the charging station neatly. 

4. Includes Charging Cable

Some charging station does not include charging cables. Therefore, you may need to buy charging cables that a. support the maximum charging output depending on the ports and b. they need to be short so you don't have wires trailing everywhere. So be prepare that you will need to spend extra penny in order to maximum the charging output. Buying charging station with provided charging cable is rather a wise choice.
