Which USB splitter?

I just use a normal Hub


Those 2 charging ports are really slow at charging (data ports)

The rear 2 ports are faster, but obviously less convenient

And of course the 12v socket is also fast - again not convenient

I've been debating the need to purchase a pass through battery bank to work as a hub and fast charger. This one I've seen recommended by a youtuber for his model 3:


But I keep reverting back to not need the phone to actually charge that fast.

I also got a data blocker, because the car seems to try and "connect" to the phone data and I have a feeling that affects how fast the charge is. Bit of a placebo maybe. But I've noticed that the phone seems to "wake up" sometimes when I stop at a light. Only does it when it's plugged in so maybe the voltage changes at drive vs standing still?
