At first glimpse, after unboxing the item was confusing, since there are no labels next to each USB port. After checking the user guide, It turns out its not a manufacturing mistake. All four USB ports utilize automatic adaptive current technology, which basically means that every device you plug inside the hub ports is automatically recognized and receive the required current. Therefore, ORICO Company didn’t think any labeling is actually required, as they specified in the product description information that current max requirement is 2.4A (Max) for every device connected to the charging hub.
Tested with ZOPO SPEED 7 Phone using a current / voltage metering USB device connected to one of the charger USB ports. According to test reading, the voltage was 5 V ~0.7 A. As mentioned a few times, the current is automatically adjusted according to the specific device power requirements. In the guide, the company explained that the charger supports quick charging technology. Without testing other brand phones and based on specs its safe to say charger should also support the new MediaTek Pump Express Plus charging technology in their Helio X series in Regular, none turbocharging mode that requires 5V – 1.67A.
The DCA-4U is defiantly a great charging hub unit to buy for portable or home usage. The product saves users the extra trouble, seeking the correct charging port because the current is automatically adjusted according to the device plugged.
