Does what it says -- can really put out the current
on June 20, 2014
With so many cheap "import" units for just a few dollars, it's really within your best interest to spend a little extra and get something with some quality. This unit fits the bill nicely, so much I bought one to test and ended up ordering two more. I have no tested this up to the rated 2.4amp claim, but at 1.4 amps with my Nexus 7 tablet it is still putting out a nice stable voltage. I then hooked up my Nexus 5 phone at the same time and it was fast charing both.
I hooked it up to my bench power supply and fed it 13.92 volts. I then connected my USB current / volt meter and then my Nexus 7 tablet. It was putting out 1.41amps at 5.22 volts. Not bad, that's about as I've ever seen my Nexus 7 draw while charging. When I then connected my phone (which charges around 1.2 amps) the voltage stayed nice and steady. This thing works - and I've VERY pleased.
It's also quite small -- when inserted into the lighter all that sticks out is the little cube end with the two USB ports. There is no silly and ugly LED light to blind you at night either.
Highly recommended as I have found all Anker products to be well designed and work well. I purchased the 6000mah portable power bank and a 3000mah one for my mother and another for my father and all of those devices work great too.
