Decked in a bold lemon-yellow color, the charger embodies the AOHI logo and hosts an impressive 140W output. The foldable input prongs and an upper panel sporting two USB-C and a USB-A port, add to its user-friendliness.
The AOHI Magcube 140W GaN Charger comes in a size of about 69 by 73 by 31.5 millimeters, which is slightly thicker than other chargers. However, it makes up for the slight increase in size with a power density of about 0.88 volts cubic centimeter, ensuring efficient power delivery. The charger weighs about 320 grams, making it portable and easy to carry.
Compared to the Apple 140W charger, the AOHI charger has a smaller size and more ports, making it a more versatile option.
Power Output and Efficiency
The astonishing fact is that both USB-C ports can support 140W power output when charging a single device. And you know what else? There’s a hidden LED indicator that lights up in different colors to indicate the charging status.
- Amber breathing light indicates fast charging.
- Blue light signifies standard charging.
- Green light represents trickle charging.
Moreover, the charger supports an array of power voltages, from 100V to 240V and up to 60hz.
- 140W power output is available when one of the USB-C port is being utilised.
- The USB-A port can provide a power output of 22.5W.
- When using USB-C and A ports simultaneously it delivers 105W/22.5W respectively.
- When both USB-C ports are being used at the same time, each will deliver 65W.
- When all three ports (2 USB-C and 1 USB-A) are in use, it delivers 65W, 40W, and 22.5W respectively.
Its power density, about 0.88 volts cubic centimeter, is like the cherry on top!
Portability and Compatibility
The AOHI charger is a tinge thicker than other chargers. However, we can let that slide given its power density. Plus, it’s lighter! it’s quite portable and and have solid build.
Its charging compatibility with most devices is pretty solid. Some Android phones even able to trigger the PPS protocol and reach more than 80 Watts. However, be prepared for a slightly slower charging speed with few devices, about 20 watts.
Charging Time and Performance
Charging multiple devices? No worries. The AOHI Magcube evenly distributes its power output – 65W, 40W, and 25W when charging three devices simultaneously.
If you are a MacBook Pro user, you’ve got something to cheer. The AOHI Magcube charges up a 16-inch MacBook Pro in a record 1 hour and 52 minutes. During first 20 minutes the peak power stays between 117 and 138 watts. It’s pretty fast – it can take your MacBook Pro from 0% to 50% in just 27 minutes.
The best part? Its charging curve almost matches the Apple 140W, delivering nearly the same charging speed.
Plus, the charger’s standby power consumption is average and in the conversion efficiency test, it has scored an impressive 90% efficiency in most cases.
Ripple and Temperature Performance
The AOHI Magcube 140W GaN Charger has shown commendable performance in ripple tests, with lower ripple implying better quality. Even under load, the charger maintains low ripples, which ensures a stable and reliable charging experience.
As for temperature, the charger heats up to around 74 degrees Celsius under both 110 volts 60Hz and 220 volts 50Hz. While it feels a bit hot, it is still compliant with the IEC 62368 standard for safe operation. Keep in mind – These results are without an Air conditioner turned on.
- Compact and portable for a high-power charger.
- Versatile with two USB-C ports and a USB-A port.
- Provides fast charging for compatible devices.
- Efficient power distribution.
- Temperature complies with the IEC 62368.
- Conversion efficiency 90% in most cases.
- Slightly thicker than other one port chargers.
- Runs a bit hot at 74 degrees Celsius when charges 3 devices
- A bit expensive than lower power one.
The AOHI Magcube 140W GaN Charger makes a strong case for itself as a powerful GAN Charger. It offers additional ports in a compact design with high functionality and portability. Although it runs slightly hot, its pros significantly outweigh its cons.
