@LimitlessInnovations , I've made the stupid mistake of not adding my apt number to my address and now the package is being returned :( . Can you update Fedex with that information? Thanks.

hey @Jaysun , it has been 10 days now and it's still stuck in JERSEY CITY, NJ with Fedex. Can you check on this? Maybe they're waiting for confirmation or something. Thanks.

Hi @Jaysun , checking in to see if there are any updates
Extra light sources are bad for sleep. That's documented by sleep researchers all over the globe. Blue light is especially disruptive. Kind of defeats the purpose of a charging pad if one has to park it in another room for proper healthful sleep. I'd think about a buy, otherwise.
If you looking for a wireless charger don't waste your money on this. You'll spend more time trying to get your device perfectly placed than you'd spend plugging in a cord. To top it off 75% of the time after actually getting it to start charging it'll stop after a few seconds.

Edited 3/11/19 - Final update. I returned my charger for a refund. I never got an answer on whether mine was defective or the USB-C PD port just doesn't work. At this point, for the money I think you're better off getting Anker gear and losing out on the convenience of having everything in one unit. Edited 2/21/19 - I have submitted a support request to Massdrop outlining my testing and concerns. I am not sure if my unit's USB-C port is defective or if none of the chargers perform as advertised (27W out of USB-C). My port will "slow" charge phones, so it is not fully defective. I will update this review when I hear back. Edited 2/20/19 - The USB-C on mine does not appear to work as I expected. It indicates it is 27W, in both the listing and the label on the bottom, but it will not fast charge an iPhone XR or XS Max, and it will not charge at all a Dell Latitude laptop. For comparison, I have an Anker charger that is also USB-C at 27W, and it does both. The only difference is the Anker is advertised as supporting USB PD (Power Delivery) and this does not say that, just that it does "Quick Charge." I don't know enough about PD to know if that is making the difference, but if so, this charger seems less useful without it. At any rate, the USB-C port isn't useful for anything you'd use USB-C for. Otherwise I still like it. Original review: Received mine from the last drop last week. Overall I am happy with it. It is replacing a normal stand-type USB hub with Micro-USB and Lightning cables connected. We have this next to our couch in the living room, where the baby monitor is constantly plugged in, along with a tablet, and one or more phones. Another cable can be eliminated because this has wireless built-in, and the fact that it has some weight makes it much less likely to move around and fall over than the old stand we had. So already two cables, and a small Qi pad, are off our end table just from switching to this. The light is pretty bright. There is a blue light on all the time, and a green one when wireless charging is engaged. It doesn't matter for our use, but if I was using it in a bedroom I would put a small piece of electrical tape over it. I have two complaints. First, it was very difficult to plug USB-A into it, all of the ports were the same, they seemed almost out of alignment, requiring me to wiggle and push really hard to get the plugs in. Since I don't anticipate plugging things in often, it is not a huge deal, but something to consider. Second, the wireless charger turns off automatically when the phone is fully charged. This is ok if the use case is "charge my phone," but it's not ok if the use case is "keep my phone charged while I talk on a Bluetooth headset, or am downloading a million things, etc". I have not tested if it will come back on after turning off, if the battery gets lower. But since my iPhone is designed to be plugged in while operating for long periods of time (and I assume all modern phones are the same), it would be better if it stayed on as long as a phone was on it. Overall I think it's a touch expensive, but with Qi and USB-C PD built-in I can't find any cheaper alternatives. I'm glad I bought it, but I wouldn't spend more than $50.

I bought it from the last drop, and gotta say, I love it! just a note, type-c charging speed is not the best, but it does charge my MacBook Pro just fine.

That's great to hear you are enjoying your ChargeHub! As for the charging speed, that is completely normal and to be expected since the Power Delivery Type-C port on the 3005 is rated at 27W, whereas the charger that comes with the Pro is 61W.
LimitlessInnovations
Does it support USB-PD? If so mine may be defective, it won't do anything my other 27W USB-PD charger will do.
Why are the USB ports called "high speed" when this is a charging device, not a hub (data)?
KestrelX
You are correct, this is not a data hub. Massdrop is actually referring to the charging speed.

Can the light be turned off?

Too bad. I’d be in if I could turn off the light. Planning for it to end up in my bedroom and I dislike extra light sources there.

I am the same way, I need absolute darkness when I'm trying to sleep. Some powered items like my humidifier give off a beam of light, at which a sharpie made a "Night and Day" difference... see what I did there lol... but because the LED shines down, I myself haven't had any complaints about brightness.

Thank you Kopo, only the best deals for Massdroppers! The link posted is actually for the ChargeHub X5, one of our original ChargeHubs...
