This review is from: PowerGen 2.4Amps / 12W Dual USB Car charger Designed for Apple and Android Devices - White (Wireless Phone Accessory)
This charger has 2 USB ports which is a plus. I can't imagine when I'd need two in a car, but who knows? The charger fits a little loosely in the cigarette lighter hole. I'm used to chargers that fit tighter, but ultimately, the two metal prongs have to make contact and that's about it. It stayed charged and never fell out of the hole. However, when I picked up the phone, it pulled the charger out. I'm used to phone chargers that fit a little more snugly in there. That's where it went from a 5 star to a 4 star for me.
The plus's include the fact that it's simple and it works. I also like the blue "glow" on the back side of the unit (where the USB's plug in). It's very visible and easy to see if the unit is "on". Plus it looks a little cool when driving at night. It's at a very good price point (especially for the i-devices). I kind of wish that it came with a little cable for charging because I'm not sure I'll leave one of mine in the car all the time-yet without it, the charger can't be used. I'm not sure if adding a cable would increase the price much, but I'd pay a couple of bucks extra to have a short cable (just 5 inches or so) included.
It seems like a nice sturdy and quality unit. I've always had the really cheap knock-off car chargers and this one definitely impresses.
The first USB port has an output of 1000mA (according to the flyer included with the unit) and the second one has an output of 2000mA. The first one is designed for cell phones and the second for ipads.
All in all, I'm glad I have it. It's a good car charger for an economic price.
