Power/Charge a range of USB devices – 1000mA USB AC Adapter (US) Reviews

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

Pros:
This thing is just great, it takes devices that normally want to charge via USB, and allows you to plug them into the wall. I've tested it with a number of different items, they all seem to work to either pull power or even better, to charge! There's a little green LED that lights up when you plug it in.
Cons:
The odd item is bound to not work with this. I think I may have found at least 1, maybe even 2. I can't remember though. Most times if it doesn't work, I still have the original cable anyway. Perhaps the mAh is to low/high, but I guess I don't care enough to go searching on my electronics.
Other:
I pose to you a question. Why wouldn't you benefit from being able to get power from something other than the USB port directly? This can help reduce clutter, even cut down on the total number of cables that you need.
Bottomline:
I thought it was a neat device when I first saw it, and I made sure this one was the one I wanted to buy. After I purchased it, it sat for a while not being used. More recently, too many electronics that I have want their turn charging from it.
