It’s been awhile and I may be a little rusty with this review thing but here goes nothing……
Today I will look at an underappreciated item from a tech standpoint – the wall charger. While not an item that is not considered exciting or sexy, it is a necessity of modern life. Our friends at iClever have sent over the three port version of their BoostCube line of chargers.
The BoostCube+ 3-Port Wall Charger is designed to operate four times faster than conventional wall chargers. It is compatible with Qualcomm 3.0 technology as well as retroactively with Qualcomm 2.0 and 1.0 devices which can take advantage of by certain Android devices. The BoostCube+ includes Multiprotect technology which can prevent short circuiting and overheating, as well as voltage spikes.
Specifications and Features
Put down your blunt objects, the fight for the one available wall outlet is over! New from iClever, the BoostCube+ 3-Port Wall Charger features not 1, not 2, but 3 fully optimized USB ports for a faster charge than ever before.
iClever’s improved wall charger features both Qualcomm Quick Charge and Smart ID charging ports. So whether you go nuts and bolts for your Android or worship at the temple of Apple, this wall charger’s got you covered.BoostCube+ recognizes your phone model and optimizes power transfer so that your battery charges the way it was designed to in the factory.It’s not just the fastest charging device ever, it’s also the safest.

The BoostCube+ 3-Port Wall Charger arrives in a blue and white cardboard box with an image of the device on the front of the package. On the back we see the specifications of the device including output, input, its size and weight. Opening the box we discover the BoostCube+ 3-Port Wall Charger, a user manual and warranty card.
The charger is composed of white plastic on its exterior with the iClever lgoo on one side and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 on the opposite side. The ends are a grey plastic with one side housing the three USB charging ports and the other with a foldable AC adapter plug. The BoostCube+ 3-Port Wall Charger measures 2.36” x 2.36” x 1.18” giving it its cube like dimensions. Size wise it is slightly bigger than an iPad Pro size charger. It weighs 4.34.
To keep the BoostCube+ 3-Port Wall Charger low profile the plug pulls down when in use and folds up when stored.
Installation is self-explanatory as it is a wall charger – plug on end into the wall outlet and the other end with the appropriate USB charging cable(s). For testing I charged devices ranging from iPhones to iPads to GoPros to FitBits. Unfortunately none of my devices had Qualcomm Quick Charge capability so the charging time was pretty much on par with the original chargers.
The BoostCube+ 3-Port Wall Charger works as advertised and was able to do the work of three chargers while taking up only one outlet plug.
If your home is like mine with a spouse and kids all needing to charge their devices at the same time then the BoostCube+ 3-Port Wall Charger is an easy way to accomplish this from one outlet. With the ability to accommodate three cables the BoostCube+ 3-Port Wall Charger saves space and limits the spread of charging cables within the home.
It is priced on par with other charger solutions and works with numerous devices including Apple iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S7, S6 Edge, S6, S5, S4, S3, Note 5, HTC One 10 A9 X V S M9 M8 LG G5, Optimus F3, Nexus 5 6 7 9 10, Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX, Blackberry, External Battery Pack, GPS, PSP, PS4 Controller, Bluetooth Speaker/Headphones, and Mp3 Players.
