Today’s road warriors carry a lot of gear. iPhones, iPads, Apple Watch, and dare we say, some non-Apple products all have one thing in common. They need to be recharged often. If you find yourself carrying multiple chargers for multiple items, perhaps its time to upgrade to the Tattu 4-Port Wall Charger.

Tattu 4-Port Wall Charger – Specifications
The Tattu 4-Port Wall Charger is one of the most compact multi-port chargers we have seen. It measures a mere 72.5mm (2.85 in) long, 48mm (1.89 in) high and 30.5mm (1.2 in) thick. It weighs just 115 grams (4.0 oz.). With its fold-away AC plug, it can easily fit into a pocket or purse. But don’t let the small size fool you. The Tattu 4-Port Wall Charger has all the power you need, wherever you may travel.
The Tattu 4-Port Wall Charger has the usual 2-prong 120 volt AC plugs built into it but is auto-sensing for either 100 or 240 voltage so with the proper adapter, you can use the charger almost anywhere. It is rated for 34W output with a total of 8.4-amps divided between the two 2.4-amp and two 1.0-amp USB-A style outlets. The 2.4-amp outlets will easily charge you’re your larger items but can also be used to provide fast charging to some of your smaller items like your iPhone or Apple Watch.
There is a single blue LED indicator built in to the top of the charger that illuminates when plugged in.
But the Tattu 4-Port Wall Charger is more than just a pretty case. Being a battery company at heart, they have built in some sophisticated safety protection including;
- Over Voltage Protection
- Over Current Protection
- Short Circuit Protection
- Over Temperature Protection
- Overheating Protection
Tattu 4-Port Wall Charger – Review
Wall chargers are one of those items that are hard to review because they basically work or they don’t. The Tattu 4-Port Wall Charger certainly did not disappoint.
We used the Tattu 4-Port Wall Charger to charge 2 iPhone 7s and 2 Apple Watches at the same time, overnight. In the morning, all the devices where at 100% with no issues. We did feel that the charger got slightly warm but certainly nothing out of the ordinary or something to be concerned about.
We then wanted to see how the fast-charge would do so we connected our iPhone 7, with about 20% of battery power left, to the 2.4-amp port. In less than 30 minutes we were up to 80%. That would certainly be helpful if you needed a quick refresh while waiting to board a plane or stopping by your favorite coffee shop.
While we had no issues while testing the charger, we should point out that the unit has an internal circuit breaker. In the event one of the ports stops working, you just need to unplug everything for about 5-minutes and the unit will reset itself. This protects not only the devices connected to the charger but the internal circuitry itself.
The Bottom Line
With all the devices we carry with us, having a multi-port charger is almost a necessity these days. The small size of the Tattu 4-Port Wall Charger makes this an excellent travel companion.
The two 2.4V USB ports are great for charging larger items like your iPad or for doing a fast charge on smaller items like your iPhone or Apple Watch.
We like the fact that the Tattu 4-Port Wall Charger has multiple internal protections as well as the self-resetting circuit breaker.
The Tattu 4-Port Wall Charger comes with a 24-month warranty against manufacturer’s defects and has an MSRP of $15.99 but is available at a discount from the Tattu web site, and even bigger discounts from Amazon.
You will also find the Tattu 4-Port Wall Charger in the Power section of the Apple Tech Talk Marketplace.
We would like to thank the folks at Tattu for providing the 4-Port Wall Charger for our testing and review
