    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    it works.

    this is a bigger deal than it may sound, because previous 1000ma chargers, which should have worked, didn't. (or, to be more accurate, once they blew out more than $5's worth of automotive fuses, i gave up trying to make them work. it never really made sense that a 1a device at 5v should blow a 10a fuse at 12v, but it did.)

    it charges my phone, and although i haven't measured it, it seems to be charging at the faster rate (1000ma vs, 500ma).

    Cons:

    a few small weirdnesses:

    1) it's a dual-port charger, but the 2 ports ARE NOT interchangeable - port 1 is labelled something like "p1000", and only port 2 will charge my iphone. that's as documented, but i wish i could use both ports. (without blowing fuses.)

    2) the blue "power indicator" light is very bright. (bright enough to light up the whole area around the usb connector.) it's not a big problem, but it's brighter than anything else in the dash, and it's a bit distracting, especially at night.

    OtherThoughts:

    (i should have bought a couple of extras, as gifts.)

    Bottomline:

    a great, solid product and well worth the money! (imho)
