Who would’ve known that one day, we would be using our mobile devices for virtually everything, from communication to buying essentials to checking finances? As we turn and face the strange of this brave new world, let me help you with something a little simpler, yet so underrated in today’s tech-centric times: Picking the right charging technology for you.

That’s why Top Greener has created a comprehensive selection of USB wall outlets designed to accommodate every charging need. In this article, we will discuss which Top Greener outlet supports which technology and works best with your device, and where you can purchase them.

Standard High-Speed Charging

Standard charging is exactly what it says it is; your device will charge at the specifications it was rated at or up to the charger’s specifications. Top Greener’s standard USB charger outlets offer high amperage outputs so even the most powerful devices are covered.

The Top Greener TU2154A is a standard USB charger outlet with a combined output of 4.0A. Featuring one of highest outputs of all USB charger outlets on the market, a single USB port can reach up to 2.4A and the remainder to the other USB port. Because of this, it is perfect for charging iPhones, iPads, and other Apple devices at their maximum speeds.

The TU2154A features two USB ports and two tamper-resistant receptacles. Two wall plates are included with the outlet: one screwless style and one traditional decorator wall plate.

The TU2154A won’t have a problem charging the Samsung Galaxy, HTC, and other Qualcomm-powered devices, though not exactly at the speeds you might expect. More below.

Qualcomm Quick Charge

Qualcomm calls it Quick Charge, Samsung calls it adaptive fast charging, Motorola calls it TurboPower; whatever one phone company may call it, they all mean the same thing. Quick Charge is a charging technology developed by Qualcomm that is designed to charge devices at a faster rate than normal, standard charging. Not all phones support Quick Charge, but if your phone supports it, you may notice much faster charging speeds from your OEM charger brick.

Many Samsung, HTC, LG, and Google phones are Quick Charge-capable, but they will also charge at a normal rate using a standard charger, such as the TU2154A outlet. If you require the fast charge feature, Top Greener also offers a USB outlet with Qualcomm Quick Charge technology.

According to Qualcomm, Quick Charge 3.0 is made to charge “four times faster than conventional charging and charge twice as fast as Quick Charge 1.0.”

It is backward compatible with previous Quick Charge generations. This means that phones or devices using a previous version of Quick Charge, such as Quick Charge 2.0, will work with Quick Charge 3.0 and will charge at 2.0 speeds.

The TU1152QC3 features two Quick Charge 3.0 USB ports and one regular 15A receptacle. It has an interchangeable face design and comes with white, light almond, and black face covers. A wall plate isn’t included so you will need to purchase that separately.
