Chuwi Hi-Dock 4-port mobile power station: Handy!


Chuwi are best known for their notebooks (and now, their convertibles). That said, the company seems to be eyeing other segments in the consumer electronics market now.

The Chuwi Hi-Dock, about which we’ve written before, is a brand new 4-port charging station that will be of use to probably anyone who’s reading this post. In essence, the Hi-Dock is an adapter with four USB ports (with support for Qualcomm QC 3.0). It outputs current in 3.6 – 6.5V 3.0A / 6.5 – 9.0V 2A / 9.0 – 12.0V 1.5A.

You can purchase one from GearBest for around the $21.

It’s a no-nonsense kit that comes with a cable and the adapter. You can choose between US and EU plugs.

Unboxing the adapter was a rather nice experience. It does not feel like you’re taking apart the packing of a $21 device… instead, it feels like something 3-5x the cost. Of course, not something you would solely purchase the device for, but a nice touch anyway.

Overall, the adapter feels really well made. I’ve been using an Aukey 5-port adapter for a while (which varies hugely in design), but this one should be interesting to test. I quite like the design, and I think I’m going to be using double sided tape to secure it to one spot around my desk.

Take a look at some photos right below to get a better idea.

Notice how you can use the flaps to secure your phone on one side. Definitely something I’m going to be using a lot. That said, this exposes the need for double sided tape (just a piece of it) even more. Something like that would’ve made the Hi-Dock a lot more useful.

Besides that, I don’t think I have any quirks or complaints with this neat piece of kit. Chuwi have done a great job making the gadget feel like it’s not a cheap piece of kit, and time will tell if the device will last the test of time.

Overall, I’d say you should get one if you don’t already have a multi-port charging dock. As mentioned earlier, it’s on sale for around the $21 mark on GearBest.
