Tronsmart Titan Plus review: Charging multiple devices has never been so easy

With many of us owning multiple devices that need charging every night, finding enough spare plug sockets for every single charger can be a chore, especially if everyone else in the household also owns multiple gadgets that need topping up. This is where a desktop charger such as the Titan Plus from Tronsmart comes into its own with its five USB ports and Quick Charge 3.0 compatibility. Join us after the break to see how we fared with the Titan Plus. 

Design

It’s big, unprepossessing, and carries no airs and graces; the Titan Plus is a desktop charger that does exactly what the box says it will. With dimensions of 159 x 81 x 29mm, it’s a little larger than some of its competitors, although it is pretty light despite its size. There are LED lights in the right-most USB slot as well as on top of the charger that indicates when the device is powered on, thankfully neither LED turns your bedroom into a light show at night.

While Tronsmart has given the Titan Plus a minimalist aesthetic, the black plastic (Polycarbonate) finish is durable and can take some punishment without cracking up. The power input is on the rear panel, with the On/Off switch adjacent to it and there are pads on each corner that keep it exactly where you placed it the night before. That’s pretty much all there is to say about the design.

Specifications

Model: U5TF
Technology: Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 & VoltiQ & Huawei FCP (Backward compatible with QC 1.0 and 2.0 Technology)

In the box, you get the Titan Plus desktop charger, an AC cable, user manual, and warranty card.

Performance

Compatible with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 as well as Huawei’s FCP (Fast Charging Protocol), the desktop charger can output 90W across its five USB ports. Thanks to Tronsmart’s VoltiQ technology, the Titan Plus will automatically match the ideal charging speed to your device, whether it’s a smartphone, tablet, headphones or a power bank. All five of the USB slots are capable of outputting Quick Charge 3.0 speeds simultaneously, unlike some chargers that have USB slots with different charging speeds. This means that you never have to draw straws to check which device gets charged quicker than all the others.

Conclusion

Priced at just $34.99/£29.99, Tronsmart’s Titan Plus desktop charger is a cheap and easy way to power a bunch of devices without cluttering up your power socket; you just have to remember to switch it on by flicking the switch on the rear of the charger. It performs its role without a fuss and can output the maximum charging speed across each of its five USB slots.

If I were to nitpick, I would say that it’s a shame that there isn’t a USB Type-C port and that Power Delivery (PD) isn’t present, but perhaps we’ll see those features in a future variant. In the meantime, the Titan Plus desktop charger offers an excellent charging experience and represents fantastic value for money.
