Lauco 8-in-1 world's smallest 100W USB-C wireless charging hub

This pocket-sized hub features:

  • USB-A 3.0 port
  • USB-C PD port
  • 2 x USB-C 3.0 ports
  • USB-C 85W port
  • HDMI port
  • SD and microSD card slots
  • 10W built-in Qi-compatible wireless charger

Initially I'd thought that the built-in wireless charger was a bit of a gimmick, but almost immediately I changed my mind. Far from being a gimmick, it's the perfect place for a wireless charger, as it reduced on desk cable clutter.

Everything else delivers as you'd expect, and the overall build quality is excellent. The tempered glass and aluminum-magnesium alloy construction is tough enough to survive extensive desktop use, as well as going on the road.

For fast wireless charging it is recommended to connect it to a 45W PD charger, otherwise charging reduced to 5W.

Regular readers will know that I'm wary of recommending crowdfunded gadgets because of the inherent risk, so I only consider companies with a prior track record that can get me hardware that I can review. I've had the chance to test this hub, and it delivers on its promise.
