Review: Hezi Desk Clamp Power Strip with 10W Wireless Charger
While I had a desk clamp power strip I was already happy with, I was attracted to this Hezi model because of the convenient Qi wireless charger. While not without its issues, it does do what it says it does.
First off, with no instructions in the box, I had a heck of a time getting the desk clamp installed onto the power strip. Essentially, the clamp just sits loosely in the power strip’s well until the clamp gets tightened on the desk. Once set up properly, both the clamp and power strip are secure.
I have an iPhone 12 Pro Max in a magnet case, so not a small phone. Fortunately, there’s enough of a placement range where I was able to place my phone on the wireless charging location while still keeping the two USB ports free. I do, however, feel like the design would have been better with the two USB ports on the far left of the unit rather than next to the wireless charger.
On the plus side, both AC outlets and USB ports are well spaced between each other, providing plenty of room to connect devices. There feels like there’s enough room for a third USB port between the two included USB ports, so that feels like something of a strange omission. Generally speaking, you don’t need that kind of spacing between USB charging ports.
Overall, while I would have liked a third USB port and potentially a third USB outlet, the included wireless charger certainly makes up for a lot. The 3.1A per USB port and 900 joules of surge protection are also pretty beefy for something like this.
