    Solid connectors with clean current

    posted by kurtismccartney on 01/26/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Glad to have the second USB port for when multiple people need to draw power or charge devices in the car. Charges at the correct current and voltage - no dropouts or 6v overcharging.
    Cons:
    None related to the function. Had to put some colourful tape on it since black devices disappear into the darkness with great e...

    A Good Charger at a Good Price

    posted by ChrisMaster on 09/29/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    I'll give this product the full 5 stars, upon using this product, it exceeded my expectations of it. • The charger I got seems to have great build quality, it doesn't feel cheap and the plastic feels strong and doesn't creak when held. • Dual USB charging c...
    Cons:
    Can't really find any... it does the job of charging like it should.

    Good adapter, doesn't follow USB spec

    posted by petur on 07/07/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    - Good price - Good build quality - Easy to use - Dual ports! - Easy to open for tweaking (see below) - LED shows it is powered - Uses an efficient voltage convertor (chopper), so doesn't get very warm
    Cons:
    - Does not follow USB spec for adapters!!! Can be fixed however (see below) - Could be made a bit smaller easily
