Equinux tizi fuel station for Apple MacBook and iPhone

If you want to charge your Apple MacBook (Pro) via USB, then a lot of power is required in terms of the charger. Of the total 75 watts of the Equinux tizi tank station, 15 watts go to the three USB-A ports, leaving 60 watts for the USB-C port. That's enough to charge the MacBook, for example, but also the iPhone X or the iPhone 8 models via Power Delivery. For the smartphones you need a USB-C to Lightning adapter from Apple. But the iPhone models from before 2017 also charge quickly with the device, since up to 2,4 Ampere per USB-A port.

The Equinux tizi tank station offers a total of 75W for one type C and three type A connections. Up to 20V and 3A are possible via USB Power Delivery; the A ports bring 5V with up to 2,4A. The loader comes in a handy format: 9,2 cm x 7,3 cm x 2,8 cm.

Outbound performance overview

With an input of 100 to 240 V at 50 to 60 Hz and 1,5 A, the Equinux tizi tank station delivers the following values ​​via the above outputs, depending on the connected device:

20V, 3A (60W) 5V, 2,4A (12W)
15V, 3A (45W) 5V, 2,1A (10,5W)
12V, 3A (36W) 5V, 1,5A (7,5W)
9V, 3A (27W) 5V, 1,0A (5W)
5V, 3A (15W) 5V, 0,5A (2,5W)

So if you connect an Apple iPhone or iPad to one of the three A ports, which already needs 2,4A for the shortest charging time, then there will be a shortage of other sophisticated devices. However, some devices charge with a significantly lower value, which compensates for this.

Compared to the Anker PowerPort + 5 USB-C with Power Delivery

Of course there are also other chargers on the market, such as the Anker PowerPort + 5 USB-C with Power Delivery. This also brings 60W of power to the clock, but distributes it to a C connection and four A ports. This means that with multiple occupancy you do not draw full PD power, as with the Equinux tizi tank station described above. If you want to take a look at the Anker model, you will of course find it at Amazon for 50,49 EUR.
