My other review: http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/RCAM4FUVSIEB8/ref=cm_cr_pr_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00UM40E1E
– compact and substantial (it's got some heft to it)
– swivel plug (use the button on the bottom)
– the 2.1 amps is shared between both USB slots
– a tad pricey at $17.50, especially for only 2.1 amps combined
I would recommend this only if you're charging one device or typically don't have to worry about charge time if charging 2 devices. Combined 2.1 amps means that if you have more than one device charging you will have a slower charge rate and thus a longer charge time. This is why I gave it 3 stars. I don't know why Belkin (or anyone else) would even make them this way – without a full 2.1 amps PER PORT! for quick charging phones and tablets! Many makers and models have this shortcoming. However, in my case I didn't check the description carefully enough (or it's since been changed), and I only needed one port, but I still would have liked the extra capacity just in case.
I purchased, and quite love, the 1AMP/5 Watt version of this surge suppressor. Yes it's not quite "mini" and yes the button to turn the plug takes some force, but all in all this thing has served me and my girl all around the world, usually connected to some dubious wall plug and hanging off a two prong foreign current adapter. Yea yea, probably not safe so I don't recommend this, but we've been using two of these since Oct 2010 and they both work well for iphones (4s and 5) Kindle Fire, Google Nexus and blackberries.
Now for the important part of the review...there is a new version! It has 2.1AMP/10 Watt. Many of the reviews that complain this device is underpowered are referring to the 1AMP/5Watt version. If you are at all concerned with the power supply issues, just buy the newer version. It will handle almost anything.
Back to the foreign adapter thing, I've found that the plastic case that came with my iphone headphones (square thing) is just perfect for helping to balance this monster against the wall. Use it like you/instead of would the plastic piece that comes covering the prongs.
Also I will strongly advise to not to use the USB port of this device. I have used the port to charge my multiple times and over and over it's been proven that whenever I use these USB ports, a strong static or something gets build on the device and their touchscreen starts behaving weird. They become quite unresponsive, which doesn't happen if you the power outlets or even USB charging through other channels. This has been tested over my various iPhones and Android devices at house.
That said, the unit itself IS a little clunky. I like that it has a rotating plug so you can make it fit JUST about anywhere... but not everywhere. I find it's a little too bulky to work in most floor access plugs (think hole in the floor where you lift a cover to expose recessed outlets). Other than that, love it.
