Updated my review to 3 stars.
Customer support was great and all my issues handled. It still didn't change the fact that I had a hotel suite that smelled like burnt electronics for the entire weekend of my anniversary vacation. Thanks Anker. Love most of your products, but wished this one didn't fail.
All put one port failed on my second charger. This stuff is junk.
Look I am usually really happy with products I get from Amazon, but this product stinks. I'm in IT, I cannot for the life of me understand how a charger can possibly fail so quickly. At first I thought it was my cables... Then I realized when my wife told me that one of the "bad" cables worked just fine for her that it was device.
Update:5/30/2014 - Anker contacted me directly once I posted the review, they asked for some details around the cables used and the model number, I promptly sent them. They then at no charge shipped me a new unit, did not expect the old one returned. The new unit has worked flawlessly for nearly two weeks. Will update with any further information if the situation changes.
-8 amps of output power to the USB's
-5 USB ports (all 5 USB ports share the 8 amps of output power)
-Each USB port has a max output of 2.4 amps
-The USB ports are "Smart Ports" which adjust to how much power the device needs to charge at max speed
-Small and portable (size of a deck of card)

-Great for international use by using AC 100-240v input voltage
-Has overvoltage, overcurrent, overheating and short circuits protection

-Works with all USB chargeable phones, tablets and other USB chargeable devices
-No annoying LED status light
-Ideal for a family/person who has many tablets and smartphones (I have an iPad Air, iPhone 5 and an iPod touch 5 that works great with this wall charger)
-Makes an excellent gift
-Very high quality construction
-18 month warranty
-UL listed (updated version!)
No cons found!
My wishes to make this product perfect:
-Make the max output 12 amps so 5 tablets, like an iPad, can charge at full speed at 2.4 amps
-Add micro suction on one side so I can stick it to my night stand
This is a very powerful and well-designed wall charger and I highly recommend it.
UPDATE 3/31/14: I have been using this wall charger everyday since I made the review. I have had no problems with charging my iPad Air, iPod touch 5, iPhone 5 and 2 other USB chargeable devices when using this wall charger. I love it!
Watch my video review.
I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation, and I promised that my review is fair and honest.
Update: Now only 2 ports work. 3 out of the 5 are dead! Major disappointment that I can no longer trust Anker products!!
Update 2: All ports have now failed except 1. Anker is replacing the unit under warranty. Apparently there were some bad batches and the issue is suppose to have been corrected.
Update 3: Anker replaced by unit by sending out a refurbished unit... when I paid for a new product. This 2nd unit failed in less than 1 day!!! 2 ports are completely dead. What horrible quality. I have lost all faith in this company.
Update 4: ALL 5 ports on the replacement charger are now dead. Various and new USB cords were used to confirm.
Update 5: After the disappointing experience with 2 of the chargers.... Anker said they did not want to send a 3rd unit because it would probably result in the same failures. Long after giving up on the product, Anker contacted me and said that they had an updated version and asked if I would like to try it.... for free. I have been using this new one for a few weeks and it works. No problems and all ports continue to work!
Update 6: About 12 hours after writing last update... the 1st port has died. I fully expect the remaining ports to die. The charger is extremely delicate and I highly recommend not wasting your money. Nothing but disappointment with this. It surely does not fit into the usual Anker quality category! Support was good though towards the end though.
