Total piece of junk
on August 18, 2011
It's not the seller. It's not the materials. It's the design. I wanted this to charge a few Samsung phones. Initially I thought the plug just couldn't go deep enough because of the housing. At ~$3.50, it wasn't worth bothering with a return, so I shaved back a bit of the plastic to make it fit. Still no go. Could the housing still be too big? I eventually took apart the plug I was interested in. Within the plug, the wires are uninsulated with absolutely no method of keeping them from shorting to each other. At these voltages, that's not a safety hazard, but it certainly isn't dependable. My guess is that another plug in the spider is shorting, because even after I insulated the wires in that same plug and tried it without a housing, it still only worked intermittently. It's not worth spending more time on. Useless.
