From the reviews I got the impression that this would charge the Android phones at 1A (AC mode charging displayed on screen). Unfortunately it turned out to be a false assumption as my phone shows to be charging in USB mode which means it is drawing only 0.5A which ultimately means my battery will drain even if I connect it to this little gadget when Navigation and screen is on. Now I have to go through all the hassle of cutting the USB cable and shorting Data cables. Why can't you at least short one of the USB sockets so I didn't have to go through this trouble.

Edit: Surprisingly, the manufacturer got in contact with me after seeing the review (I didn't try to contact them at all). They sent me a cable that I can use with my Galaxy Nexus so that it will charge in AC mode using this adapter. It all works fine now. While the product needs this cable to work as desired the company's attitude was just great so I had to make it 5 stars. Now I feel mcuh more secure knowing that the company is behind the product for sure.

Verified Purchase
6/6/2012 - Well, I wasn't expecting a refund or anything but the seller, Laptopmate, really went above and beyond what was necessary to make things right after reading my review and fully refunded my purchase without me even requesting it! And they offered to send me a different replacement product for free. So I still don't like the product but at least you can be assured you'll be covered if there are problems. The seller is truly exceptional, wish all Amazon sellers were the same way.

Original Review

So my goals were to be able to use a single car charger with two different phones, my girlfriend's iPhone and my Android phone. I would just need two device specific USB cables and this one charger. When I received the item I was a little shocked at how small it was. It was actually perfect for my car because it is just a tad longer than the actual cigarette lighter so I was able to fully close my ashtray cover. Perfect I thought.

Before hooking either of our phones though I wanted to test it out as the size was a little disconcerting to me, especially if this device is a high output device. I wasn't sure how it was going to keep cool, etc. I decided to charge a simple bluetooth earpiece just to see if it was a fast charger or not. On my typical drive home my regular, single output charger can normally charge my earpiece from one bar down to full. For some reason this device stayed at one bar down for the trip. That was funny I thought, but at least the device wasn't fried.

The next morning I turned on the car and noticed a burnt smell. I realized it was the charger right away and sure enough it was smoking. It wasn't hot or on fire or anything as I unplugged it right away. It just burnt. Something inside was lacking I suppose.

I got this charger because I spend a lot of time in the car and use Bluetooth and GPS on my iphone regularly which isn't great for the battery. I have tried other chargers in the past but they never seemed to last very long and didn't charge my phone well (in one case the charger wouldn't even maintain the battery level). This charger appealed to me because I can use any USB charging cable with it which allows me to charge my phone, my ipad, my wife's phone or my Anker external battery pack. I can charge 2 devices at the same time when necessary and the charge rate is superior to any others I've tried.

The device looks nice too. I know appeal doesn't improve performance, but if it's visible, I want it to look nice. The glossy black finish is very attractive and the blue indicator light is diffused enough that it's useful and not distracting. I actually abandoned a previous charger due to it's harsh, overly bright red indicator light (in addition to poor performance).

There are car chargers galore to choose from. Some much cheaper and some much more expensive than this Anker product. It's hard to know which one to choose, but after several attempts, I've found it! Save your money if you're considering a higher priced one and save your time if you're considering a cheap one. This device performs the way it should and looks nice to boot. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who needs a durable and versatile car charger that performs well consistently. And with the USB and micro-USB ports, it will charge just about any modern device.

I recieved the Anker car charger just before leaving on a long trip. At first I was aprehensive about using a 3rd party device to charge my smartphone as I haven't had very good luck with them in the past. Not long into the beginning of my trip I realized that I had forgotten to charge my phone the night before and it's battery was at 1%. I plugged my phone into the charger's built-in mini-USB cable and plugged the charger into the cigarette lighter of my car. Two hours later I stopped to get something to eat and found that my phone was fully charged.

A few days later on my return trip my phone was once again running low on battery, but so was my Kindle Fire that my three year old was playing with. Once again I plugged my phone into the built-in mini-USB cable, but this time I also plugged in my Kindle Fire via the built-in USB port. About an hour and a half later I pulled off the interstate for gas and found that both my phone and the Kindle were fully charged.

Since my trip, my family and I have used the charger in the car on several occasions, and needless to say we're all very happy with it. We love the conveniance of being able to charge more than one device using the same outlet, and we were very impressed with how fast it charges our devices even when more than one device was plugged in.

My family and I all highly recommend this Anker car charger to everyone, and will be purchasing a second one for our selves soon.
