Great travel charger,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Anker® 40W 5-Port Family-Sized Desktop USB Charger with PowerIQ™ Technology for iPhone 5s 5c 5; iPad Air mini; Galaxy S5 S4; Note 3 2; the new HTC One (M8); Nexus and More (Black) (Electronics)
I highly recommend the 40W / 8A version of the Anker 5-port USB charger. The product title calls this product a "Family-Sized Desktop Charger", but I just used this device when traveling with my family and it worked perfectly. I think "Desktop/Travel Charger" may be more fitting. I was able to replace 5 separate single-device chargers for iPads, Kindles, iPhones, etc. with just this one compact charger and it really made things a lot easier. All we needed was a single outlet in our hotel room and everyone's devices were charging in a single location. This made it much easier to set up and we didn't need to go hunting around the room to make sure we hadn't left a charger plugged in behind the pedestal or under a desk when we packed up. At times I had all 5 ports active and the charger handled the load without any problems. In fact, I just bought a second one to use in my bedroom, where my existing 4-port charger simply isn't able to keep up with charging even three devices at once.
