Yeah, but no. – Universal 500mA USB Power AC Adapter with Usage Status Indicator (100~240V AC) Reviews

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

Pros:
The indication light comes in handy. Works from a large Voltage range (110V ~240V).
Cons:
Granted that the description does state that it is 500mA, it would be better as a higher amperage.
Other:
I bought this to charge my iPod,(since my brother always wanted the one I borrowed from the shed). When it arrives, I was a little disappointed to find that the Amperage was slightly lower than 500mA, and wouldn't charge my iPod at all. I'm honestly a little afraid it'll burst into flames.
Bottomline:
Good for low power things (things that aren't plugged in to be recharged), but then again, that's the whole point of a wall charger.
