Color Name: 2.4 AMP Single USB Port Verified Purchase
Both charger and adapter arrived in a timely fashion. The charger itself is smaller than I expected, even from the picture, and if you are looking for a minimalist charger that effectively converts the 12v port in your car into a nearly flush USB charging port, this is it. The high-current charging adapter for tablets is also slightly smaller than the adapters sold by Edo Supply on EBay (barely larger than a USB plug), but works just as well on a Samsung Galaxy Tab, which I verified as fast-charging in my car (though I am guessing still not at the maximum charging rate, see below). The adapter is also still functional when used with other high-amperage chargers.

The only real complaints I have with this product are that 1) it only has the one USB port, and 2) the spec says this is only a 1.2A charger, though that is at least enough to get the Galaxy Tab to increase charge with the screen at full brightness and the GPS and data connections running. I eventually replaced the charger with a much bulkier one that had both a 2.1A output and a (standard) 0.5A output because I wanted the ability to charge two devices at once and maximize charging current more than I wanted the low-profile design, but I kept using the Satechi adapter to be able to get my tablet to recognize the high-current port on the other charger at all (the Edo adapters were thick enough to block the second port). Note that I am relying on stated specs for this; I did not actually perform charge time experiments on both chargers.

Wishlist: the ability to purchase the adapter separately from the charger, as it has a very nice form factor and works perfectly. A fifth star would have been awarded if the charger itself had 2A output and a second port, even if it had become slightly thicker as a result.

I have only had this charger for one day, so I will update the review in 6-12 months once I see how well it holds up over time. As for right now? I have nothing negative to say about it. The low profile is near perfect, the construction seems solid for what it is, no problems people mentioned about overheating or blowing a fuse, and it looks pretty good for a $10 charger.

Now... the important parts. These points are particularly important if your smartphone has trouble with charge speed / efficiency while using a car charger:

1. 1.2A Power - 2.1A would have been nice, but it's more than enough to keep up with my GNex.
2. The included "Smart Converter." This solves a problem so many smartphone owners experience. By effectively shorting the data lines in the charging cable, it puts the phone in "AC Mode." Without this Smart Converter, the phone stays in USB mode and charges vastly slower, no matter how much power your source is outputting. If you've ever connected your phone to a PC, you know how slowly it charges in USB Mode. The Smart Converter can even be used with PC USB ports and USB chargers.

I've tried other chargers that don't "trick" the phone into AC Mode and they don't provide enough power to keep up with a GNex running GPS and 4G. I tested this charger / converter combo tonight on my way home from Wegmans. Here are the results:

- In 18 minutes, the battery gained 8%
- The phone was running Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS, and 4G. Screen sleep was disabled and Ingress was actively running the whole time.

That's good enough for me to be happy with this product for $10. If it fails in the first few months, I'd probably even give it one or two more tries before deciding it's junk and changing this review.

Color Name: 2.4 AMP Single USB Port Verified Purchase
Bought this and an Amzer Micro USB Retractable Data Cable to use as a car charger for my new Samsung Galaxy SIII. Dont have any specs to post, but I can't tell a charge time difference between the fast times I get at home and using this unit. Perfect!

The smart converter that comes with the unit is simply a USB extender that plugs into the back of the unit. I assume it crosses/connects some of the conductor wires to simulate a different/faster type of charger. Look around on amazon and you will find some people modifying their chargers to accomplish this same task. Handy and elegant to have this available out of the box with a simple little plug.

Pros:
Fast Charging
Silver part of the unit is a heavy duty handle that swings out to pull the unit from the car lighter
included "Smart Converter" see above
cool led color changing light

Cons:
LED light is a bit bright when it turns green at night, but I dim my dash lights anyway, so thats probably just me.

Color Name: 2.4 AMP Single USB Port Verified Purchase
I used the Satechi 2412ST adapter on an international flight in April 2012. The product is lightweight & compact and sits nearly flush to the DC socket when inserted. There's a pull-down ring (the silver piece in the picture)to assist in pulling the charger out of the socket when needed. I didn't need it, but your mileage will vary. There is a small LED light on the face of the charger (near the USB socket), and it lights up to know electricity is flowing. It's not so bright that it would be distracting during night driving (in my opinion). Nicely executed product that just works.

I used the charger on my iPad2 and (separately) my Droid 2 Global phone without any problems. The charge was similar to plugging the devices in using their natural adapters, even on the iPad2 (so I will assume the output is the 2.1 amps as stated on the product description).

All-in-all I am happy with the product. Quick shipping via Amazon Prime was definitely a plus as well.
