What is a "F plug"?

I love the idea of these small do-it-all chargers but here's the unfortunate reality I've discovered:

The fact that these don't support a range of voltages across all ports is annoying. The cognitive load of figuring out which port to use for what, and what devices I can plug in and still get fast charging on is just a drag. At least on the baseus model I have, I will plug in my Apple Watch and iPhone and the power negotiation logic boots the watch or phone out of charging. Nothing worse than coming back to your phone and finding out you just spent an hour with it plugged in NOT charging.

With higher draw devices you'll get slow charging or no charging on a device and you won't necessarily know how quickly things are charging. Granted the capacity if of course limited when you split it across many devices but it's hard to manage that while traveling when you need, say, to top up your phone and iPad while working on your laptop.

For this reason I still just prefer to carry the proper apple chargers for all of my devices and supplement with a GAN charger.

I hope in the future they can improve circuitry and logic to get more wattage distributed to ANY combination of ports, and work out the switching and negotiation bugs (baseus)

And for me no UL Listed certification, no sale.
No kidding. Seems like they rushed this out instead of taking the time to get the appropriate certification. Pass.

That diagram is badly wrong. The UK power plug looks nothing like that. I suspect that 'Type D' plug with three round pins is for India, four thousand miles away. UK plug is Type G with three rectangular pins.
