2.0 out of 5 stars USB port does not work right, May 21, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Digipower ACP-WTA World Travel Adapter with Built-in USB Charger - White (Electronics)
I bought three of these units because they had everything I needed, a USB charger and an electric outlet.

The first one I forgot at the hotel, ok, my fault.
The second one fried in London (only the USB port), while charging my iphone overnight
The third one fried in Tanzania (the entire unit was black on the inside), while charging.. yes, my iphone overnight

I did get replacements for the two fried units from the manufacturer, but there are a few things that concerned me.

1) The device has a fuse and a spare, why did it not protect the unit
2) Is this a batch problem, or a design flow??
3) Because it was each time with the iphone, is it just specific to the iphone, duration????

Two stars, one because of the issues I had with this unit, and one star for the prompt delivery of two alternative units. Hopefully they will last longer

Outside of that, the light that indicates what is charging works great and gives you an indication you are getting power.
