The ALOGIC USB-C Dock Wave is a curious device – in a good way. It is a USB-C dock/dongle/hub with Power Pass-through, Power Bank and a Wireless Charger. It is my new travel friend.
We think the ALOGIC USB-C Dock Wave is perfect for travellers who want a USB-C dock with 4K HDMI, 2 x USB-A, microSD and a USB-C port for power passthrough. Oh, and it has a 5,000mAh battery and a 5W Qi charger.
We put the ALOGIC USB-C Dock Wave through its paces and were
delighted that it not only handled Mac, Windows and Android but Chrome books
and Samsung DeX.

Aristotle, the Philosopher, said, “The whole is greater than
the sum of its parts”, and that is the best way to describe this. But we need
to analyse each part then we can look at the whole.
Qi Charger 5W – Pass
A Qi 5W charger will charge iPhone8 (7.5W) or Samsung
Galaxy/Note or later (15W or more) – it is just a bit, well a lot slower. I
have 5W Qi pads (for my Samsung Note10) beside my bed as it does not matter if
it takes eight hours. For the most part, is topping up my days use ready for
So as long as you have the time, this is a perfect pad to
keep the phone on when you are not using it. And Qi is far kinder than fast
charging to the batteries as well. It will also charge AirPods.
Test: It delivered 5V/.952A (4.71W) to a Samsung Note10
showing excellent QI efficiency – Pass.
