The tizi petrol station or petrol station from Equinux has been and is a topic here in the blog several times. It is a multiple charger for the socket, which, depending on the version, offers different connections and charging capacities. The current model of the Equinux tizi tank station is connected to the power supply via a C7 small device socket and brings you a USB-C connection for mobile devices USB Power Delivery (USB PD) and three USB-A ports. Details about the Equinux tizi filling station, the at Amazon 59,99 EUR can be found below.
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 of 75 watts of the Equinux tizi filling station, 15 watts go to the three USB-A ports, which leaves 60 watts for the USB-C port. That is 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 even the iPhone models from before 2017 charge quickly with the device, as up to 2,4 amps are supplied per USB-A port.
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.

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.
