Very handy – USB 4-port Car Adapter Reviews

posted by helius1 on 07/13/2009 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- Four USB ports AND an additional power charger port.
- It's the same size as the regular-sized single-USB-port charger that sells for far more in local stores.
- The phone adapters provided. I've only used the SonyEricsson and mini-USB plugs, but they work great for my SE phone, Blackberry, and a whole host of USB devices.
- The build quality is quite acceptable.
Cons:
- The high-pitched noise when the current draw is high. I haven't figured it out yet, but it seems to happen if the total current draw exceeds some certain amount.
- It fits rather loosely in the cigarette lighter plug in my car. Not unacceptably loose, but it seems to require much less force to dislodge than just about every other cigarette-lighter chargers that I've ever used.
Other:
Bottomline:
It's cut down on the clutter in my car by quite a bit. I have managed to charge my GPS, two phones, and a PMP all at once without any problems with this charger.
