Is aohi magcube 30W Gan charging head easy to use?

Write first

First, I published several articles about switch peripheral accessories, which involved more than 20 kinds of accessories, including 65W Gan fast charging head to replace the original adapter.

However, some small partners still question whether the 65W Gan fast charging head is too large, and whether there is a smaller choice? After a tour of the Internet, I found that the current very popular 20W Gan fast charging head is good, and the volume is small enough. But the power of 20W is really not enough. In case of iPad, some Android phones or laptops, some of them are not enough. Thinking about it, at present only the compromise of 30W can better meet my needs. Next, let's share my latest 30W charging head, aohi magcube 30W Gan charging head, to see where the advantages of 30W power are.

 

Before we talk about charging head, let's take a brief look at aohi. Those who are not familiar with the charger may not know the origin of aohi and think it's just a small brand. As a matter of fact, aohi is the self owned intelligent brand of Aohai technology, and Aohai technology has a cooperative relationship with many mobile phone brands and is the core manufacturer of its original charger, such as vivo, Huawei, Xiaomi, Nokia, etc. So don't underestimate the origin of aohi. It's not too much to say that aohi is rooted in Miaohong.

Small enough, easy to carry

The outer packaging box of aohi magcube 30W Gan charging head (hereinafter referred to as magcube 30W charging head) is not mentioned much. After all, it is not the key point. However, after 18 months of replacement, it's very conscientious. This is relatively rare.

There are not many items in the box, only magcube 30W charging head and instruction manual, no data wire attached. In fact, I personally don't mind whether it comes with wire or not. After all, the self purchased wire will be better than the manufacturer's.

The size of the magcube 30W charging head is really small enough. Originally, my three port Gan is the size of my palm. This time, the magcube 30W is the size of my thumb, and its volume is basically the same as that of the ordinary 5v1a charger. Compared with many similar 30W charging heads, it is also small enough. It is the smallest 30W charger on the market, and it won't take up much space when it is stored in the bag.

 

The overall appearance size of the magcube 30W charging head is about 28x28x32mm, the style is square, and the four corners need to have arc-shaped edge closure, with excellent skid resistance and grip feeling, and no fingerprints. The tail surface is decorated with diamond patterns, which is officially called three-dimensional micro carving diamond texture. From the visual sense, the texture has been greatly improved, and the actual touch is not cut off.

There is only one usb-c port at the end of the charging head, which adopts three-dimensional micro carving metal design, so it has high stability and should be more resistant to plugging and abrasion. If compared with the three ports, the magcube 30W has many fewer interfaces, but at least it has 30W power, and its versatility is better than the 20W apple "dedicated". Moreover, the magcube 30W uses the same chip as the original charger supplier of apple, so there is no need to worry about the risk of mismatch when charging Apple devices.

 

In addition, there is also a breathing light at the tail, which allows users to judge the charging condition according to the current color. For example, the Yellow breath flicker is the on fast charging state, the green long light is the low current power mode, and the blue long light is the normal charging state. The design details are small, but very practical.

From the plug, we can see that the mark output of magcube 30W charging head is 30W at most, supporting more than 5 kinds of output power: 5v-3a9v-2.22a9v-2.77a, 15v-2a, 20v-1.5a. The overall efficiency is a little lower than that of 65W, but as long as it is not used in laptops, it can fully meet the charging needs of small current devices such as mobile phones, tablets, earphone bracelets, etc.

It is worth mentioning that the magcube 30W charging head uses a faster and safer three-stage safe fast charging, which can improve the charging speed and the service life of the device under the condition of ensuring the safety of the device battery. Don't worry about the battery health after using the fast charging.

Don't worry about the battery health after using the fast charging.

There is no problem with the no-load value of magcube 30W charging head. The conventional voltage is 5.07v.

In terms of protocol, magcube 30W charger supports Apple 5V 2.4a, bc1.2 protocol, SCP 18W, qc3.0 (5V 9V 12V) protocol, Samsung AFC (5V 9V 12V 25W) and Huawei FCP (5V 9V 12V 24W), pd3.0, qc4 + protocol and PPS, and can be widely compatible with various devices such as Huawei, Samsung, apple and switch.

Through the deception results, we can see that there are five fixed voltage levels and one PPS voltage level: 5V / 3a, 9V / 2.22a, 9V / 2.77a, 15V / 2a, 20V / 1.5A and 3.3-11v/3a. Among them, PPS has reached 33W. If the mobile phone based on PPS fast charging protocol is replaced, the theoretical peak value can exceed 30W, reaching 33W.

In 2017, usb-if released an important update of usb-pd 3.0 standard, adding PPS (programmable power supply) programmable power supply on the basis of usb-pd 3.0 standard, aiming to provide a unified specification for today's fast charging solutions-- Quoted from Baidu

Measured data

After the port is connected to the red devil 3 mobile phone, the real-time reading voltage is 9.56v, the current is 1.95a, and the power is 18.74w. The pd3.0 protocol is successfully handshaked. The peak value of maximum power during charging period is above 23W, which is beyond that of ordinary 20W charging head.

When charging the iPhone XR, the random reading values: voltage 8.84v, current 1.56a, power 13.84w, maximum peak power 18.72w, successful handshake pd2.0 protocol. Starting from 5% power, it only takes 30 minutes for the power to reach 54%, and the efficiency is significantly improved.

For low-power devices, switch Pro handle and wireless headset are tried respectively. The former values are 5V, 0.4A and 2W respectively. The voltage of the wireless headset is 4.9v, the current is 0.4A, the power is 2.3W, and the maximum peak power is about 2.3W. There is no problem with the conversion effect of magcube 30W charging head at low power.

After the switch is connected, pd2.0 protocol is successfully activated, with 15V / 2A voltage range, random voltage value of 14.85v, current of 0.93a and power of 13.94w. Don't worry about losing power while playing.

Try to access the notebook, the power is close to 22W. After all, it's not a 65W Gan fast charging head, but if it's under medium and low load, 30W is enough for many books. After all, the power consumption of the laptop is getting lower and lower, and 30W has the advantage of larger volume.

During the whole charging period, the temperature of magcube 30W charging head is not high, and the highest temperature of wire interface is about 47 ℃. The touch of the surface is slightly warm, but not hot. It is safer than some 65W Gan fast charging heads.

When trying to use it with the portable base of c-force, it can perfectly trigger the TV base mode, and there is no problem playing switch while charging.

Summary at the end

[product advantages]: the advantage of magcube 30W charging head lies in its volume and power. With the size of five Fu and one an, the output power can reach 30W, which should be the smallest product of the same power at present. It's very suitable for carrying out. It's put together with mobile phone or switch, and it doesn't add any burden.

The diamond texture of the rear is carved in three-dimensional and the CNC high-light chamfering of the charging port. This is the "card" of the magcube 30W charging head. The value of the product can be felt by the hand and the product identification is high. Besides appearance, it is compatible with and supported by many protocols, and it also enables it to match all kinds of digital devices such as Android phone, tablet, switch, pen and power and apple.

[product suggestion]: as the smallest 30W charger on the market, the volume and performance of magcube 30W charging head is really amazing. But I still hope that the price can be further reduced in the future, so that more people can experience this super small 30W.
