Original Nubia RedMagic 120W Four-ports GaN3 Pro Charger (Transformers Edition ) Review
Common consumer digital products, in addition to their outstanding capabilities, also imbue more meaning. I believe many people with unique beliefs will not hesitate to buy them, such as the Original Nubia RedMagic 120W Four-ports GaN3 Pro Charger (Transformers Edition ) available today. In terms of product functionality, it not only has the ability to deliver mainstream 100W high-power single-port output but also the ability to provide high-power output for two or even four ports. Such capabilities will allow it to provide efficient and convenient charging experiences for a wide range of devices. In terms of design, it perfectly aligns with the current popular culture and customization trends, bringing more significance to everyday digital products. At first glance, it evokes a sense of nostalgia. The sides and front prominently feature the word "TRANSFORMERS," alluding to the concept of "energy conversion" from the Transformers storyline while highlighting the product's functional application.
Inside the packaging box, you will find an instruction manual, the charger, and a charging cable with Transformers elements. The TYPE-C port on this fast-charging cable also features Transformers elements. It includes an E-mark chip, making it capable of handling high-power currents easily, ensuring better quality and preventing heating issues. The official Red Magic phone team has also put various craftsmanship into the charger itself. For instance, its surface uses a special metal spraying process, and it's hand-polished, giving it a unique metal battle-worn texture, making it seem as though it just came back from a battlefield covered in smoke and debris. The official statement says that the battle-worn patterns on its surface are all unique, so every user can consider it a custom piece. On the right side, there is the Transformers logo and "TRANSFORMERS" text.
The Original Nubia RedMagic 120W Four-ports GaN3 Pro Charger (Transformers Edition ) features a 90-degree foldable plug design, which is convenient and user-friendly. This charger has a unique feature; it supports two 100W, one 30W, and one USB-A 30W high-power fast charging outputs for single devices, as well as dual-port and multi-port high-power combinations. For example, using the dual-port combination of Type-C1 + Type-C2, you can achieve 60W + 60W fast charging. Type-C1/C2 + Type-C3 can provide 90W + 60W fast charging, and Type-C1/C2 + USB-A can offer 90W + 30W fast charging. For three-port combinations, Type-C1 + Type-C2 + Type-C3/USB-A can be combined to provide 60W + 30W + 30W, 30W + 60W + 30W, or 45W + 45W + 30W. For four-port combinations, Type-C1 + Type-C2 + Type-C3 + USB-A can be combined to provide 65W + 30W + 10W + 10W or 30W + 65W + 10W + 10W. This allows it to efficiently charge multiple devices simultaneously, such as two laptops with Type-C1 and Type-C2 or phones, computers, tablets, and even headphones, all without the hassle of carrying multiple power adapters and chargers when traveling.
The Original Nubia RedMagic 120W Four-ports GaN3 Pro Charger (Transformers Edition ) uses gallium nitride (GaN3) and Neocharge fast charging technology, which provides high thermal conductivity, high electrical conductivity, fast heat dissipation, lower energy loss, and higher conversion efficiency. It is also compatible with various charging protocols. The Type-C port supports PPS/PD3.0/PD2.0 and QC3.0 fast charging protocols, while the USB-A port is compatible with QC3.0/QC2.0/SCP/FCP/AFC/APPLE2.4/BC1.2 and PE protocols, covering a wide range of mainstream brands and devices, including Apple, Dell, Huawei, Samsung, Xiaomi, and more. To protect various devices, it also supports trickle current protection, providing strong defense. When a phone is fully charged, it automatically switches to trickle current mode to protect the battery's health, a common feature in most original charging kits for fast-charging devices. When your device has only 20% low battery, it quickly switches to high-speed mode to rapidly charge your device. It also features input/output overvoltage protection, output overcurrent protection, abnormal path impedance protection, short circuit protection, temperature protection, overcharge protection, Reset protection, and hardware detection protection, ensuring comprehensive safety.
In simultaneous charging tests, charging two laptops, Huawei MateBook 16s, and Huawei MateBook D 16, using Type-C1 and Type-C2 took approximately 90-100 minutes, which is comparable to the original chargers' efficiency.
Charging a phone and a tablet simultaneously, such as Xiaomi 11 Pro and Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro, using the dual-port combination of Type-C1 and Type-C2 took about 56 minutes for the phone and 100-110 minutes for the tablet, meeting daily fast-charging needs.
For single-port 100W charging, using Type-C1 for Redmi Note 11T Pro+ took 48 minutes to fully charge, slightly slower than the original 120W charger but still efficient enough for travel purposes.
Using Type-C1 and Type-C2 for combined charging, it can reach 120W, with power distribution automatically adjusted based on the device's power and protocol. Charging two phones, such as Xiaomi 11 Pro and Honor Magic V, with proprietary protocols simultaneously, showed no significant difference in charging speed compared to the original chargers, indicating excellent compatibility.
During these tests, the surface temperature of the Original Nubia RedMagic 120W Four-ports GaN3 Pro Charger (Transformers Edition ) was measured. When charging two laptops simultaneously, a significant temperature rise was observed. In a room at 31°C, the surface temperature reached approximately 60°C. Compared to other gallium nitride chargers with temperature increases of around 30 degrees, this performance is quite good. Some products on the market even reach 40-50°C, and some even exceed 80°C. In comparison, this charger performs well.
In conclusion, the Original Nubia RedMagic 120W Four-ports GaN3 Pro Charger (Transformers Edition ) is a practical and efficient multi-port fast charger with Transformers customization as its selling point. While you can overlook the "customization" gimmick, its multi-port fast charging design does deliver on practicality: it's easy to store, efficient, and offers multiple combinations. Although some multi-port charging combinations may not meet ideal expectations, if you want to travel with fewer original chargers and adapters, it is indeed a suitable choice. Recommended for frequent travelers and business travelers.
