2x 65W PD Chargers won't charge 3 devices simultaneously as advertised

Hi There,

We purchased 2x Samsung 65W PB chargers so we could charge 3 devices simultaneously (as advertised) but neither one charges 3 devices at the same time.

Any time we plug-in 2x USB-C devices, the USB-A port gets disabled. Is this normal?

We're sticking to the watts noted on each port as follows...

  • 65w port = 18W iPad Pro 12.9 3rd Gen 
  • 25w port = 20w iPhone SE 3
  • 15w port = 5w AppleWatch SE

Also, we have a second unit that is trying to charge another 20w iPhone SE3, a much lower watt 15w iPad and a 5w Fitbit in the USB-A port and see the same issue = only two devices at once.

Any help or suggestions much appreciated.

Cheers, Ben

OP here, have also tried switching the iPad and iPhone ports around but it makes no difference. When both USB-C ports are in use, the USB-A port doesn't work.

I was joking but ok, I would have never of guessed. I supposed it's very rare of someone buying Samsung charger for apple products, I'm sure it will work, but not very well I guess

Seams weird to me but maybe Apple Devices draw more current than the adapter allows even though the watts are within spec? Anyway, lessen learnt.

You should buy a Apple device charger as your trying to charge iPhone etc instead of using a Samsung one.

Well, I've used all sorts of third-party chargers with Apple devices for decades without issue - Apple even sell third-party chargers on their site. So long as the volts/watts are good, there's never been an issue.
