2. The Pezin & Hulin is just a stand with a box beneath it where you need to put a charging hub purchased separately. You get the flexibility of mix and matching and switching out hubs, but the complete setup will cost more.
3. The USB-C PD (Power Delivery) port is the same as the QC (Quick Charge)3.0 port.
4. From COSOOS <firstname.lastname@example.org>
The 105 watt COSOOS charging station consumes a little power during standy and works at low power when no devides is in charging.
It is highly recommended to unplug the power supply when do not use for a long time for the sake of product life and safe.
