The front part of the Powerstrip delivers the 4-port solution and looks like a conventional smartphone charger. There are two USB Type-C ports at the top and two USB-A ports at the bottom. This way, you can use both cable standards to charge your smartphone or smart device. Take note that the USB Type-C to Type-C is the fastest ports and Baseus has been kind enough to add a USB-C to USB-C cable that allows you to charge your compatible smartphone very fast. There is a power LED indicator at the top.
In case you need it, you can also find all the technical specs of the device on one of its sides.
Both sides also feature a three-prong 110V port allowing you to not also plug some conventional devices like a fan, or even a laptop. This is the big add-on that makes the device act like a charger and a power strip simultaneously. However, depending on your region, you’ll need to get an adapter since the Powerstrip is mostly based on the US standard. Here in Brazil, for example, I had to pick some adapters since the standards here are mostly based on the EU plug with the addition of a third plug. So, you’ll need to make sure you have the necessary adapters in case you’re out of the US.
Baseus provides a deep explanation of the Powerstrip. As a result, you’ll be able to know exactly how the device will work depending on your use scenario. It’s a 65W charger when you’re charging via USB-C and that’s the only USB connection you are using. Anything else will certainly step the output down and it is limited to a maximum output of 65W combined across the four charging ports. If you have a power-demanding computer that needs more than 65W, it’s better to use the original charger and plug it into one of the 110V ports. Otherwise, you’ll experience discharging even with the device connected.
When you’re using the four ports, the first USB Type-C will provide 45W, the second one will provide 15W as well as one of the USB-A ports. The last USB-A port will have just 5W. So, you’ll still be able to charge your smartphone fastly depending on the input that it supports. The Split-charging may sound like a limitation, but still, this does not make the product sound less useful. It’s still a powerful charger that will charge multiple devices at very good rates. The 45W is still fast, 15W is also acceptable depending on the device. There are other scenarios and you can see in the picture above. I could easily charge my POCO X3 Pro with the Baseus charger since it supports 33W charging. Moreover, I’ve plugged my iPlay DualShock 4 charging dock in one of the USB-A ports and it’s working perfectly fine.
