One works, one does not work – Universal Micro 5-Pin AC Travel Charger for Cell Phones (100~240V AC/EU Plug) Reviews

Pros:
Really cheap, simple, no need for additional cable, you can directly connect your phone or other compatible device.
Cons:
I bougth two of this. The first one worked for 10 minutes, after that I felt burned plastic smell, and the charger does not work anymore. (No output voltage, but the phone I was charging is OK.) The other one works fine, but I'm sure its output current is not 1000mA. Comparing to other official chargers, it takes twice the time to charge my phone, so I'd guess about 500 mA or so.
Other:
If I would buy again, I would buy a little more expensive, hoping that will really have the 1000mA output current stated.
Bottomline:
Really cheap and simple. It's not high performance, definitely not 1A output current. One of the two I ordered only worked for 10 minutes.
