KOVOL Sprint 120 W Charging Station Review

As we continue to expand Niche Gamer’s tech section, one of the items we received for a review was this super nifty little charging station. KOVOL’s Sprint block is a 120 watt charging station that connects via AC power to an outlet and allows you to charge up to four devices at once via USB-A or USB-C. Here’s our review for KOVOL’s Sprint 120w charging station.

KOVOL Sprint 120w Charging Station
Manufacturer: KOVOL
MSRP: $109.99 USD

This little rectangular box allows you to charge up to four devices at once while being able to deliver a full fast charge out of all four ports at the same time. While there’s very little to say from a performance standard, my only real complaint is that the device will automatically cut power to some cables while connected. For example: My Magsafe charger for my iPhone will always have to be disconnected and reconnected before it’ll start charging again. While it’s not a deal breaker, it’s less convenient than I’d like since the part of the benefit is having a powered USB hub is to quickly plug in and recharge.

All isn’t lost though, as my work computer only has two USB ports so I like keeping this guy on my desk so I can charge my stupid stuff that I don’t use enough to warrant staying plugged in at all times such as my PS Vita or my SteelSeries headset. I’ll likely take this little guy on vacations with me as it’s often a pain to find plugs and especially USB ports in cheaper hotel rooms that you’d often crash in for the night while road tripping.

The price is a little high, currently $100 on Amazon at the time of this writing, but the ability to quick charge four devices at once is worth it if you’re traveling with a group or a large family. I know this little guy is gonna be accompanying me for press events such as E3 or PAX where our charging windows are low and we want to get the most juice we can possibly get at the same time.
