15 Jul Aukey PA-Y12 Desktop Charger: 72W charging station with 3 USB ports | Test
- In addition to producing a large number of power banks, Aukey is also a well-known brand on Amazon for several shippers. Recently, the gadget manufacturer launched a 72W wall charger with 3 USB charging ports including a Type-C with Power Delivery support. This means that even notebooks that use a USB-C port for charging can be loaded without any problem. See below all the features and performance offered by the Aukey PA-Y12 Desktop Charger.
Inside the sales box we find the following content:

A carrying bag and a USB-C cable are missing.
The new 72W desk charger designed by Aukey has the classic design adopted by the company on its other products. In fact, we have a completely plastic construction with minimal aesthetics but that some might appreciate. Precise that on the edges of the sides creates a particular light trail in contrast with the light.
In any case, the general structure is quite compact and manageable and also boasts a satin finish that allows the product to resist scratches and fingerprints. Specifically, on the front we find the Aukey logo while on the back the main technical specifications and certifications obtained.
The upper and lower areas are both clean while on the right side are the 3 USB ports with green connectors (2 USB Type-A + a USB Type-C) and on the left side the input to insert the power cable. The latter has a fairly thick structure and seems of excellent quality.
Absent an LED indicator that indicates the operating status. Speaking of numbers, the Aukey Paretea Charger PA-Y12 measures 100 × 78 × 31 mm and weighs 220 grams.
Aukey defines its product as a powerful USB charging station with 2 full-size USB ports and a USB Type-C input to charge all the devices on the market. The USB-C port features Power Delivery 3.0 technology with support up to a power of 60W. This allows you to charge different devices like a 13-inch MacBook Pro, a Nintendo Switch or the latest Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 +.
The other 2 USB ports, however, have AiPower technology that allows you to safely and reliably recharge all USB devices from 5V up to 2.4A on each port. Thanks to the advanced circuit and integrated security systems, the Aukey PA-Y12 Desktop Charger protects your devices from excessive current, overheating and overload.
Entering more specifically, the charging station has a total output power of 72W, a USB Type-C PD port from 5V 3A, 9V 3A, 12V 3A, 15V 3A and 20V 3A and 2 full-size USB ports AiPower from 5V 2.4A each.
