Design

The black braided cable is 1.2 meters long with a USB Type-A connector. It supports fast charging at 2.4A and is pull-resistant for added durability. The cable works with Lightning, USB Micro B, and Type-C interfaces, which are designed to handle 2.4A without overheating. The 23AWG thick copper core ensures low resistance and fast charging, while all connectors are made of Aluminum alloy.

I tested the cable with my Android devices, and it charged my Samsung S7 Edge fast without overheating. It worked seamlessly with my PC for charging and data transmission. The main cable end has a USB Micro connector, and the terminating side includes connectors for Lightning (Apple) and USB Type-C (Android), providing three connectivity options using adapter connectors for Micro USB.

ORICO ZMC01 is a slim, Fast Wireless Charger with up to 10W power for wirelessly charging compatible devices. It is 100mm in diameter, 7mm in height, and weighs only 72 grams. The charger comes in white, with a black edition available. The top surface features the ORICO logo and name, housing dual-coil technology for 73% energy conversion. Operating in three modes—5W for MiMIX 2S, 5W for iPhone, and 10W for selected Android devices—the charger’s top cover leaves an exposed edge for design, with a green LED diffuser for visual indication during operation.

PRO TIP: When opting for the ORICO ZMC01 Wireless Fast Charger, consider its sleek design and dual-coil technology for efficient wireless charging, especially suitable for users prioritizing convenience.

On the backside, two anti-vibration, anti-slip rubber pads are placed, along with power information and “Made in China” labeling. The unit has a rubber oil coating for anti-slip properties and uses a USB Micro-A to B cable. A QC2.0-supported adapter, which can be a mobile charging adapter, is needed for quick charging.

The charger can sense the device up to a distance of 8mm. The mobile with cover can be charged as well. The unit has intelligent heat control to avoid overheating.

The following models are supported in this unit:

Applicable Models List

Testing

I have tested the unit on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

Here is the test result:

Power Source Battery Percentage Charging Time Heat Status
Samsung QuickCharge Adapter 20% to 100% Approximately 90 minutes Not overheated
ORICO ZMC01 connected to Samsung QuickCharge Adapter 20% to 100% Approximately 140 minutes Over Heated

Early wireless chargers took longer to charge compared to wall adapters. Fast Wireless Chargers improved charging times but were still not as fast as QuickCharge adapters. Our test on the ORICO ZMC01 showed it took 50 minutes longer to charge, but it offers the convenience of easily picking up and placing the device without dealing with USB cables. However, it heats up more after a full charge than the Samsung QuickCharge adapter.

WARNING: Users prioritizing rapid charging over wireless convenience may find the ORICO ZMC01’s slightly longer charging time compared to wired adapters less suitable for their needs.

Should You Buy It?

By conducting an in-depth analysis of ORICO’s Wireless Fast Charger and a 3-in-1 charging cable, my judgment is:

You Need a Versatile 3-in-1 Charging Cable: If you need a versatile 3-in-1 charging cable equipped with Lightning, USB Type-C, and micro USB connectors, providing convenient charging for various devices.

Don’t Buy It If

You Prioritize Rapid Charging: If you prioritize rapid charging and are unwilling to compromise on charging speed compared to wired adapters.

You Prefer Dedicated Cables: If you prefer having dedicated cables for each device type rather than opting for a 3-in-1 cable solution.

You Have Concerns About Heating: If you are looking for a wireless charger that minimizes heat buildup after a full charge, compared to alternatives like the ORICO ZMC01, as suggested by test results.

Final Words

ORICO ZMC01 is a slim wireless charger with 5W, 7.5W, and 10W modes. It comes in white or black, has LED indicators, and uses a dual-coil design for efficiency. Fast charging requires a QC 2.0 adapter. Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge takes 140 minutes to charge from 20% to 100%. The charger has a rubber coating for grip.

ORCIO HT3-12-BK is a 3-in-1 cable with Lightning, Micro USB, and Type-C connectors. It’s braided, has a 23AWG copper wire core for a 2.4A current, and offers fast charging with over-heat protection. Connectors are made of aluminum alloy for durability.
