Also it lights up with a cool blue glow which looks cool at night.

I love that it has two USB ports, so I can charge multiple devices at the same time.

This product has two major issues:

1. While it's description claims it has a 2 Amp port and a 1 Amp port, the reality is that it has bridged the two ports and it can only source 2 Amps total. It is not capable of delivering 3 Amps combined like the description implicitly claims and could never simultaneously charge an iPad and a smart phone. (UPDATE: The technical details section now indicates more clearly the 2A total, which is appreciated.)

2. The 2 Amp port appears to be using the Apple protocol for USB power, so that port will only provide 0.5 Amps to most other devices.

The upside of this is the 1 Amp port somewhat over delivers, and can source 2 Amps if nothing else is connected and 1.5 Amps if the 2 Amp port is sourcing 0.5 Amps for a non-Apple device. Thus this product can support one-high power non-Apple device (in the 1 Amp port) and one lower power device (in the 2 Amp port).

Now some more background/details...

First, a little background on USB charging for those who don't know:

The USB power spec is for 0.5 Amps at 5 Volts... or 2.5 Watts. This was great up until the last couple years when devices have gotten really power hungry, particularly smartphones and tablets and to a lesser extent dedicated GPS's. Some of these devices use over 2 Amps, particularly the tablets like the iPad (or in my case the HP Touchpad).

Manufacturers of these devices therefore had a dilemma. If they had their devices pull more than 0.5 Amps, they risked damaging the power source, which could be a computer, that was only prepared to source 0.5 Amps. Thus the manufacturers have used tricks to determine whether their device is connected to an unknown source, at which point they purposely only draw 0.

* Update Sept 2013: Newer models listed below are probably a better choice. Better output, better fit in socket.

PROs:

* Full-speed charging of iPad, iPhone, and more (see Note 1)
- Branded product. Amazon reviews apply to this exact item.

OKs:

- 1 year warranty

CONs:

- Wobbly fit in car socket (works OK though)
- Cheesy blue light -- always on

- - - Alternatives - - -

- Anker® Dual USB 3.6A Car Charger (compact)

- CoverBot Dual USB 3.1A Car Charger (lowest cost, also highly rated)

- PowerGen Dual USB 3.1 Amp Car Charger

- - - Apple and Non-Apple Devices - - -

Apple devices use their own method to decide charging speed. A designed-for-Apple charger may provide slower charging for non-Apple devices, and vice versa. For details, see K. Crawford's review: http://www.amazon.com/review/R1BSQFGYMS2DCH/ref=cm_cr_pr_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00622AG6S (Apparently this charger can also fast-charge non-Apple smartphones and other 1 Amp devices using the 1A port.)

- - - Notes - - -

Note 1: I tested using a 2-month old iPhone 4S while on/locked. These iPhone results do not apply to other phones.
