Contemporary electronic devices, such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop, have one thing in common – they still have a short battery life, especially if we use them intensively. They may run out of energy when traveling by car, for example. Then the perfect solution can be a fast charger that will power your laptop and smartphone at the same time. Such a device is offered by the Silver Monkey brand.

Up to 100 W from a single USB-C port

The Silver Monkey SMA014 car charger has the appearance typical for this type of device, and its housing is made of black plastic, which is shiny on the part hidden in the cigarette lighter socket, while the protruding part is matte. The whole is 74 x 36 x 36 mm and weighs 41 g. The lower, narrower part hides in the power socket in the car, while the wider, upper part protrudes from the socket by about 3 cm.

Let’s take a look at charger specification. This one requires a voltage supply 12-24 V, i.e. the one we have in the cigarette lighter socket in the car. As for the way out, then in the case of USB-C port the parameters are as follows:

  • 5 V – 3 A,
  • 9 V – 3 A,
  • 12 V – 3 A,
  • 15 V – 3 A,
  • 20 V – 5 A.

The maximum power that – at least theoretically – we can get from this port is 100 W.. Nest USB-A it is a bit weaker, and its parameters given by the manufacturer look like this:

-
  • 3.6-6.5 V – 6.5 A,
  • 6.5-9 V – 2 A,
  • 9-12 V – 1.5 A.

From the graphics in the user manual, it can be concluded that the maximum power that can be used in the case of the USB-A port is 18 W..

When we use both sockets at the same time, the maximum total power of the charger is also 100W. The tested charger offers technologies Power Delivery and Quick Charge 3.0.
