As usual I received this unit free for review. Also as usual I'll be absolutely candid about my experiences with it.

* When plugged in through this unit, my phone did stop trying to sync data. So plus there.

* I connected a meter to the plug and it made no difference whatsoever to charging. The phone drew .75A without the adapter and .74A with it. So no significant change.

In summary, I'm not sure what exactly this thing is supposed to do. Perhaps if I had a lower-output USB port this would help but at .75A it didn't do anything. You be the judge I guess

Now I can charge my Ipad mini from USB hub! When I take adapter off, I can sync but not charge...with adapter on, I can charge but not sync! Perfect! Fittings are tight and effortless.

I'll be honest and confess that when I agreed to review this (I received it as a review sample) I was skeptical. For one thing I could not figure out how it would possibly work viewing it in the same category as cold fusion.

However, it does work. I tested it with my Galaxy Note 3 phone and my Samsung Tab 3 10.1 tablet on my ancient ThinkPad T61 and it charged both devices. Not just charged them, but about as quickly as the OEM wall chargers do. In the past the ThinkPad took forever to charge either of those devices. In fact I had given up on it having the ability to do more than dribble in a charge.

I still have no clue how this thing works, but am now a believer. More importantly it does not hamper synching between my T61 and my phone, which was another concern of mine. The Note 3 is very finicky about what cables and ports are used for transferring and synching files, but did not balk one bit with this in the signal path.

Purchased because my Sony MP3 player tried to interface with my work computer when I tried to charge it using the USB port, but I do not have software loaded on the work computer (not allowed), so I could not charge the MP3 player. The Sabrent solved my problem.

this thing is absolutely amazing. LOVE IT. I always hated how all the newer devices will not charge through a usb on a desktop/laptop, but this thing now makes it possible to charge a device from a desktop/laptop. I definitely plan on buying again.

This little plug delivers - it allows me to plug in my tablet to a laptop or USB hub, and I can also use any of my many smartphone wall USB adapters now (for when the big Samsung wall charger gets misplaced). This thing works as advertised - definitely a must-have if you're a tablet owner.

The fact that I have two smartphones, a tablet, and an iPod touch is kind of what some may cal "Techaholic" - someone that have too many devices. I'm addicted and it's kind of hard to break but I always remain calm especially when it comes to recharging which could talk some serious time and nobody likes wasting time. Thankfully, Sabrent has created an accessory that help speed up that waiting/charging time. Say "Hello" to the USB Turbo Power, your new best friend.

What's in the Box?

By far, this was the most simple product boxing I have yet to encounter. Matter of fact, it's not even a box that the product came it it was a plastic casing:
- Sabrent USB Turbo Power Charger (HB-SFST)

Where Does the Sabrent USB Turbo Power Charger (HB-SFST) Exceed?

The task that this little guy had to complete was to improve the charging speed of any USB port to help cut down on charging time. For example, it usually take about 30 minutes to charge my iPod touch 4th Generation but with the accessory I was able to charge it within about 15 - 20 minutes. The battery isn't as large as the Nokia Lumia 1020 which features a beast of a battery that usually takes bout 40 - 60 minutes to charge. The accessory brought it down to about 20 - 30 minutes which is fine with me as well.

It's very small, not very attractive, but gets the job done in a fashionable time frame. I wouldn't say purchase it for its looks rather than its ability.

Where Does the Sabrent USB Turbo Power Charger (HB-SFST) Lack?

Sorry, but I mist admit that I have yet to find anything wrong with it. It's not perfect but then again it's not horrible.

This USB dongle is supposed to plug into the low powered USB port on your computer and boost the power output to 1 Amps. It's very simple and all you have to do is plug it into a USB port on your computer and then plug your device into it. First of all I don't like the having a USB dongle that sticks out to far because we only use a laptop and it tends to get hit on things. This dongle sticks out about a inch but it's not too bad. There are no drivers to install and you just plug it in and use it.

I review a lot of electronics and have an Amp / Voltage meter to help me determine whether or not products deliver what they promise. For my first test I connected a iPod up to my computer and let it charge for a few minutes and the meter averaged .49 Amps. I then disconnected the iPod and connected the turbo charging adapter and then reconnected the iPod and the meter averaged .48 Amps. There was virtually no charge whatsoever. If anything it slightly lowered the output of the USB port.

Next I tried charging my higher powered iPad 2. Without using the turbo charging adapter it charged at an average of 1.46 Amps. After connecting the turbo charging adapter it charged at an average of 1.40 Amps which was a decrease as well.

Unfortunately due to negative results on two different devices that I have tested I can't recommend this turbo charging adapter because not only does it not boost the output it actually decreases it.

Sample provided for review.
