I know there are plenty of people on here who love their USB chargers so I thought I'd make mention of a review I did of my Zero Lemon charger for TravelTalk. 

 

If you're after something with USB-C PD output this is a great option, and there aren't too many options out there if you are after 60W PD output.

So this will charge my X360/Lenvo X1 then you think?

 

I wish they had a model with a couple of extra ports. I have the Anker 6 and 8 and sometimes I feel frustrated I can't get enough devices charging!

I've read lots of issues trying to charge the X360 via anything but official HP USB-C chargers so no idea whether it will work.

 

I have been following these on Indegogo as well before they made it to market. Looks like a great product but I wouldn't pay what they want for it http://www.omnicharge.co/omni-20-usb-c

That's serious dosh. Can't say I'd part with that much cash. Carrying around the Thinkpad Charger and 1 Anker isn't that big of a deal.

Great review, something else to add to the shopping list.

 

How smart is this type of charger (i.e. how wife-and-child-proof is it)? In particular, what happens if you plug a a non-QC device into the QC socket? Similarly, what happens if you plug a device wanting less than 2.4A into a "2.4A Max" socket? 

 

Something of a tangent, but I had always thought that the device would only draw the amps it requires, and Nothing Bad would happen if you plugged if something with a lower draw. However I've recently had a problem with a (cheap) bluetooth headset that I'm still trying to diagnose fully (faulty charger, faulty device or something else) where it seems to charge fine using a low amp charger. But if you charge it on a 2.4A charger it thinks it has charged (charging light goes out, Bluetooth battery gauge says full), but it lasts about 20 minutes before giving the low battery warning.
