REVIEW – As more and more devices switch over to Type-C (USB-C) charging ports, the need for multi-port high wattage chargers have become more significant. Laptops, battery banks, flashlights, and wireless microphones are just some of the Type-C devices that I often find myself charging quite often.

Design and features
The KOVOL Sprint 4-port charger is a compact charger that features GaN charging technology. Gallium Nitride (GaN) chargers don’t require as many components as silicon chargers, making them smaller and more efficient. In the case of this charger, it allows the KOVOL Sprint to be up to 37% smaller than typical 100W chargers.
The Type-C port can supply up to 100W, or simultaneously provide up to 60W of power to two devices via the Type-C (USB-C) PD ports. The charger also features Smart Power Distribution and is a PD 3.0 certified device which means it intelligently allocates optimal power for each connected device. KOVOL’s Q-Pulse technology ensures safe charging features such as surge, over-current, over-voltage, short-circuit, over-charge, and high-temperature protection.
The design of the KOVOL Sprint 4-port charger is simple and compact. The AC input cord can be detached, which is something I really like. I don’t like to have charging cords bent when placing them in a bag.
The KOVOL Sprint 4-port charger worked flawlessly for me. It charged everything that I have. It ran my laptop and my tablet simultaneously. I’m going to buy a second one for my garage to reduce the number of odd chargers I have out there.
