Compact and perfect for overnight charging
on August 16, 2014
The review sample that I received was tiny - less than an inch long, wide or deep - and could fit two side-by-side in a standard dual wall outlet. The fact that the prongs fold makes this perfect for travelers.
It would also be great for home use if it had a higher charging rate during simultaneous charging. However, when I consider what it was designed for it makes sense. The trade off here is size versus output. If the charging output was any higher this would overheat. It tends to run a little hot as it is.
Since most travelers are charging overnight while sleeping this will do the job. I tested it with a half charged iPad2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 and six hours later both were fully charged. Since I was sleeping I do not know how long it actually took for each of them to fully charge, but they were ready for a day's work when I was.
Unlike folks who have reported failures I have been using this for nearly a week with two devices and no issues. In fact I am kind of fond of it because it does take up so little space. If you pack light and only take two devices on trips this is a perfect charger. In fact, it would also make a perfect back-up charger if you are the risk-averse sort of person.
