It seems to be well made and works great so far.

This product suffers from the same problem many USB chargers do: It's designed for Apple products, not for other products like Android. I find the description quite deceptive because it will NOT deliver the current one expects for most Android devices (or the HP Touchpad as well).

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 0.5 Amps, or to the dedicated charger that was provided with the device, where they can draw all the power they need.

There seem to be two common tricks used. The first is to short the two data-wires together in the charger. This is what most non-Apple devices do. Since a computer or older device wouldn't have done this, the device can assume it is safe to draw all the power it needs.

Apple seems to have taken a different approach, one that I don't fully understand but know can be seen by the fact that the data lines are neither open nor shorted when the charger is plugged in, and is more sophisticated and probably superior, because I suspect it allows the device to know exactly how much power it can use.

I've had better built car USB chargers and I really like those chargers that are nearly flush with your console, but this one still gets by. It doesn't protrude nearly as much as a 'standard' charger so points there. The blue LED is cool too, and not distracting or annoying by any stretch.

NOTE that if you're charging an iPhone, iPod or iPad (I have all three) the bottom slot won't charge iPad or iPod Touch 4th gen. The top slot will however charge all devices.

This means that if you have an iPhone (up to 4) or 3rd gen iPod, you can charge using either slot. But your iPad must go into the top slot. If I had two iPads this would be a problem, but I don't so it's not :) Just consider that before you buy. I have 3rd and 4th gen iPods for my kids so I just have to remember that one has to charge in the top slot if I want to charge both simultaniously. Or if I'm charging my iPad, it owns the top slot. Whatever. You'll figure it out. Just don't buy if you're charging 2 iPads or 2 iPod Touch 4th gens. That's it. Charges fast, I'm happy I bought.

UPDATE (7/11/2011)

Finally broke. Truth be told, I abused the heck out of it. Surprised it lasted as long as it did. So I figured I'd order another. From the looks of the picture though, it looks like they've made some improvements. It looks sturdier, looks like they ditched the blue LED, and no longer suggests that the iPad needs to be charged in the top slot. Looks like they figured out how to simply split the charge. Not sure if this is better or worse, but I'll find out. Not changing my rating. Gonna give it a shot. For the record, the one I previously reviewed looks more like the

Several reviewers have said only one of the two slots will charge an iPad. It seems that the newer shipments will charge an iPad 2 in either port. I ordered one of these on April 12, 2011 (with RND Power Solutions lable), and as others have reported, only one port would charge the iPad2. Still, I liked it so much I decided to order a bunch more to give as gifts. The RND Power Solutions version is "No Longer Available" on the Amazon site. But Amazon is still fulfilling this one by XTG technology which looks identical, was available and I ordered a bunch. I tested them so I could tell my friends which slot to use with their iPads and to my surprise, the iPad2 charges on either port on the ones I've just received... so it must be a new version. I've been very satisified with it.

both ports charge my ipad 2. I kinda wish one of the ports was NOT 3.1 amps as when I charged my blackberry, it charged REALLY fast and got kinda hot. Not sure if that's the best thing for it since the BB and most phones only expect to charge on a 0.5 - 1.0 amps.

I'm sure this charger would be great... if I had an iPhone or iPad. I have a Galaxy Nexus phone. And it charges very slowly. It will charge non Apple products, but at a max current of only 500mA. Apple chargers, such as this one, have a specific voltage on each data pin (D+ and D-) that tells your iDevice how much current is available, and to charge at high currents. For Android phones, and other non Apple devices these voltages mean nothing, your phone will see it and think it's connected to a USB port and charge slowly. The way Android phones look to see if higher currents are available (i.e. AC wall charger), is by looking to see if the data pins are shorted together (I can't say for all devices, but I know that for my Nexus and my wife's HTC Thunderbolt this is true).

If you are handy with a soldering iron you can take this charger apart and make it charge faster for your Android device. I don't recommend it, however, for just anyone. It will slightly damage the plastic body taking it apart, and you could permanently damage it. Once open find the 4 resistor that are connected to the data lines, with a continuity checker, and remove them. Then short the two center USB port pins together on the PCB, for just one of the connectors. The 2 connectors are in parallel so data pins are connected between them. Then put it back together. You'll have to use super glue to keep the plastic body closed tight. Now it will charge your phone at 1000mA.

Amazon should really change the headline for this product, as it is very misleading. It CANNOT charge just any "USB powered device" with 2.1A (tablets), or even half that (phones).

I will change to 5 stars if Amazon will fix the description to be more accurate.
