TITAN Taichi TP-15TC & TP-25TC 2-in-1 USB Charger Review

TITAN Taichi TP-15TC & TP-25TC 2-in-1 USB Charger Introduction:

A long drive is pretty boring without some really good old Blues to keep me going. I’m sufficiently fortunate to get have a Bluetooth receiver integrated inside the sound system of the car, so I work with an Internet radio app on my small Android phone to be handled by my favorite channels. The data usage and also the streaming usually drain battery quite a bit and plugging the product in to the USB car charger is mandatory to help keep everything running. Most car chargers have one USB port and they are not really targeted at provide the 2.1A necessary for power hungry devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 that I use. Power limitation aside, it begins to get a bit tricky when I have to plug inside the GPS, too, to some one port charger! It also gets really out of control when you will find passengers (especially your personal kids) using their own devices to charge. Usually the car ultimately ends up being a dictatorship where my music takes precedence over everyone else’s needs! So you can imagine my joy and relief when I received both the USB car chargers that I will likely be reviewing for you personally today. The TITAN Taichi TP-15TC & TP-25TC 2in1 USB Charger units solved all of my problems and provided extra utility added to that.

The Taichi TP-15TC and Taichi TP-25TC are part from the Power Series manufacturer product line from TITAN Technology Limited, a Taiwanese company established in 1989. I have to state that my only interaction with all the company so far was that of a puzzled man trying to make sense of a CPU cooler advertising banner with wolves in it. My whole perspective changed after having a quick tour on the company’s websites (it has an old website plus it seems that things are all being migrated towards the new - and better looking - one). TITAN Technology Limited posseses an impressive product catalog including fans, CPU coolers, cables, chargers, and power inverters. Today I will probably be looking at the Taichi TP-15TC and Taichi TP-25TC 2in1 USB Chargers. First I will perform the presentations, only then do we will talk performance.

TITAN Taichi TP-15TC 2-in-1 USB Charger Closer Look:

The Taichi TP-15TC comes in a box manufactured from glossy thick paper which has a small peek window for the top. The box generally is covered in text, logos, photos. The top shows the TITAN logo, name, along with a section of the clear window. The front is definitely the item inside by name while reminding the possible buyers that is not your average USB charger; it's also a car battery tester! It entirely possible that the patent is still pending because of this device with a max creation of 3A combined between both the USB ports available. The left side reiterates some of the previous info then displays a tiny picture with the charger having a legend showing where everything is located. Towards the bottom a directory of compatible portable devices is listed. Tablets, GPS, Cameras, Smart Phones; you name it and also the Taichi TP-15TC looks like it's able to handle it as a result of its two USB ports rated respectively at 1A and a pair of.4A.

The back in the box shows a translation from the tag-line "Innovative combination: USB charger and Car battery tester" in eight languages. A QR Code is available for those who want more information from the website around the spot. The specifications in the device are displayed for the bottom section. The right side from the box illustrates the way the Taichi TP-15TC translates the car battery charge status into a simple three color code through red, yellow, and green LEDs. A table is protected to help you determine what the different lights mean. If you are inside green, you might be good to go I guess.

The device is made from solid plastic and has a good feel to it despite it being very light-weight. It sports a distinctive design based on the YinYang theme and a few cool Chinese characters that read Taichi about the black side in the device. A cooling vent within the shape in the YinYang symbol is present on the white side. The face in the device gets the three car battery diagnostic LED lights, one USB 1A port, one USB 2.4A port, and a switch to select 24V or 12V depending for the car battery specs. Most cars will operate a 12V battery automatically.

TITAN Taichi TP-25TC 2-in-1 USB Charger Closer Look:

The Taichi TP-25TC is the four USB ports variant and is available in a slightly larger box compared to TP-15TC. The box is the same as the smaller version with regards to layout and info provided. The Taichi TP-25TC has a 5A total output, a 3A fuse, along with a bigger frame compared to TP-15TC; other than that, it is a replica in the smaller version. As you can see on the last picture, the LED lights are pretty bright, specially the red one. If it is not at optimal charge level, the TITAN Taichi will sure tell you that!
