For the first three days, it was able to charge an iPad, an iPhone,and a Blackberry phone. I was very impressed.

On the third night, the blue light on the front started flickering. By the fourth morning, it was fully dead.

I haven't tried to return it, since the price point is just low enough that it's not really worth the hassle, shipping costs, etc. I just wish I hadn't bought it in the first place.

EDIT: The Powergen customer service folks sent a replacement out promptly and free of charge, and it seems to be working just fine. Upgrading the rating from one star to four.

To start off with the positives, I used a Kill-a-Watt to measure the current draw while charging with multiple devices. My wife's Ipad 2, her Galaxy S3, my Note 2 and Thinkpad were able to achieve the same charge draw as the original chargers (2 amp for the Ipad, Note and Thinkpad). I originality purchased this unit as I travel quite a bit for work and liked the swivel plug. I was happy with the performance and form factor.

Unfortunately, to the negatives...

1. While the charger is plugged into an outlet but not charging a device, a LOUD buzzing noise is emitted from the charger. I can hear it while the charger is on the floor and I am standing a couple feet away. The sound is similar to a buzzing capacitor that is about to fail. I do not trust leaving the unit plugged in, unattended. I also ordered the black version, it has a similar sound but it is much less intense; I can only hear the noise when my ear is within a 6-12" of the charger. I have what I consider a defective unit which I understand happens but leads to the 2nd negative and the reason for the one star review.

2. I emailed POWERGEN CS regarding the issue and asked for a replacement. I received a response asking which charger had the issue. After multiple follow-up emails I never received another response.

Due to the positives listed above, I would recommend this charger to almost anyone. Unfortunately, due to the lack of customer service I cannot.

Never thought I'd be writing a bad review, but this charger quit working after only a couple of months. The blue light is off, and it doesn't charge the phone anymore. Too bad!.. It seemed like a nice product, but the quality is not up to par.

-- I'm disappointed with the design of this wall charger. I reviewed the specs carefully before purchase, and after using it, I've no reason to doubt it charges as advertised. However the published specs did not describe the swivel plugin feature as a detachable module that separates from the charger base, presumably to facilitate an undocumented alternate plugin module which is not included. My experience to date shows this feature to have an inherent design flaw that seriously frustrates the overall functionality.

The swivel plugin and base components are intended to lock together internally via a built-in plastic sliding track design. Unfortunately the two components fit so loosely that they routinely fall apart in your hand when attempting to plug into an electrical receptacle-- sometimes causing sparks to fly from a failed insertion.

To avoid this happenstance while inserting the plugin, one must hold the charger with an awkward hand-grip that secures both charger components from sliding apart during the simple exertion of pressing the plugin into a receptacle. An alternate remedy, other than returning the product, is to glue or tape the two parts together.

Of course, customers are not expected to resort to such unorthodox methods after paying good money for any new product. For that reason, plus consideration that PowerGen customers could be better forewarned by more detailed disclosure in the ad description-- I must rate this item only 2 stars.

Update: I replied with this same review to a PowerGen email after my purchase, inviting me to advise them of any problem before posting my review. After 3 weeks without a response, I have adjusted my rating to one star.

It's a lot like Apple's iPad charger, but more versatile. Each port is optimized for Apple or non-Apple devices. It will charge your tablets and smartphones at full speed (like the ones that came with your devices). (See Note 1.)

However, it is 62% more bulk than iPad's charger.

If you want a charger that's a little smaller and never blocks other outlets, consider PowerGen's 2.1 Amp dual port wall charger.

PROs:

* Designed for Apple and non-Apple devices
- Full speed charging for a wide variety of devices
- 3.1 Amps available. Charge 2 devices at once
- Fit and finish are good. Feels like quality.
- LED power-on indicator
- Nice price when $10 or less

OKs:

- Bulkier than some chargers (2.6" x 2.0" x 1.1")
- 1 year warranty

CONs:

- Blocks other outlets in some situations (see Note 2)
- Some nit picks (see Note 3)

- - - Alternatives - - -

- PowerGen's 2.1 Amp dual port wall charger
- The black version has a rubbery coating (this white version has a glossy finish).
- Leave a comment if you know of other good alternatives

- - - Disclosure - - -

The manufacturer gave me this product for review. I believe my review is impartial. I usually list competing products in my reviews, but right now I don't see any great alternatives.
