About

EASY PC POWER TO GADGET JUICE 

Simply connect Pinout with any typical computer power supply unit, no matter it's a new one or one that has been hiding in the body of a desktop computer bought in the early 00's, as long as it's functioning, juice is always ready for you.

(Tips: It's not rare having a desktop computer power supply to function properly for over ten years. Sounds amazing?)

 

   

129W 25A SUPER POWER

Pinout dedicates to creating USB charging power beyond market standard. Up to 129W / 25A total output in a compact size bringing you a full array of simultaneous charging options.

  • USB-C - Latest USB fast-charging specification for highly-demanding gadgets
  • Quick Charge 3.0 - Leading-edge Quick Charge 3.0 technology supported for compatible smartphones
  • Smart 2.4A - 8 Smart USB ports provide the optimized current to your devices bringing you a real fast-charging experience

 

    

ONE CHARGER FITS ALL

 

           

FULL-LOADING SIMULTANEOUS CHARGING

NO REDUCTION OF POWER AT FULL-LOADING

Pinout charger provides 100% THROUGHPUT among all 10 charging ports facilitating to charge SIMULTANEOUSLY WITHOUT SPLITTING OF POWER

In other words, a rated 2.4A output is always the actual output of the respective charging port, no matter how many gadgets are being charged at the same time.

If you search for "10-port USB charger" on major online retailers, you will probably find numerous 10-port USB chargers at 60W.

Having plugged in the numbers into a simple physics equation below, a 60W 10-port USB charger can only provide 1.2A at each charging port in average while 10 gadgets are being charged together.

Output Power = Output Voltage x Output Current 

where Output Voltage is always 5V for USB charging, and divide up the Output Power by 10 for each port of a 10-port USB charger.  

Try calculating it out!

   

DOUBLE UP THE POWER

You may even double up your juice by connecting two Pinout chargers to a compatible power supply unit. So, over 250W with 20 charging ports, all together.

Simply connect two Pinout chargers to an ATX-conformed desktop PC power supply unit with rated output power over 400W will double up your juice source.

(Tips: Power supply units of desktop PC can go as high as 2,000W)

EXTENSION POWER CORDS  

ATX 24-pin and 4-pin extension power cords are available for your easy concealment of the power supply unit.

 

 

   

HELP REDUCING E-WASTE

OVER 2 BILLION PCS WILL BE DISPOSED IN THE NEXT 3 YEARS GLOBALLY, WHILE OVER 70% OF THE POWER SUPPLY UNITS INSIDE ARE STILL FUNCTIONAL AND REUSABLE.

Every year a large amount of desktop computers are being thrown away. These computers not only create waste but the ways that they're being handled often pose hazards both to the environment and the nearby residents.

Have you ever imagined that the power supply units inside these discarded computers are still good and can be reused? Over 70% of these abandoned power supply units still function well. They're not waste.

  

Why not giving them a second life by transcending them into another form of powerful charging device again? 

 

 

   

WHERE IS THE POWER?

Any ATX-conformed desktop PC power supply unit with as low as 250W rated output power works fine with Pinout. All power supply units of common HP, Dell, Lenovo/IBM or your DIY machines do fit. 

Easy conversion of power - take it out then plug 'n play.

Don't worry. If you're not sure, send us a photo of your power, and we'll check it out for you.
