Top Customer Reviews
- 2 USB charging ports for phones, IPODs, etc.
- wall mounted.
- $25,000 insurance protection.
- The USB chargers always draw a small bit of electricity even when not being used. I plugged this surge protector into my Kill A Watt Electricity Usage Monitor and found it drew a small current.
- The $25,000 insurance policy has some small print. Every cable going into your protected device needs to be run through an approved Belkin device. So if you plug in a TV, the coax connector has to be plugged into a Belkin device. Protecting a PC? You need to be using wireless, or you need to have your network cable going through an approved Belkin device. Not a major problem, just make sure you are actually covered by the insurance policy BEFORE a disaster hits.
- The outlets in my house are the square, flat type that do not have a center screw hole to mount this unit. I had to change the outlet to a standard outlet which since I had everything on-hand, and am comfortable with electrical work, took me about 5 minutes.
My overall opinion of this item is that it does its job as advertised. If it fits your needs and the slight vampire power load do not bother you, then it will work out just fine for you.
I found many different products that would fit the bill, but each was $30 or more. When I saw this Belkin on Amazon at ~$13 I was blown away and figured it must be bad, but the reviewers say different (mostly).
I decided to purchase 3 of these, one for each bedroom, and try it out myself. They were easy to install, just remove the face plate from an open outlet, plug in and screw in. I wasn't actually expecting that type of setup, but I'm very happy with it. Much better than a big power strip laying on the ground.
The 2 USB ports at the top are really convenient and the 6 plugs are spaced enough that most chargers will fit without obstructing the other outlets. Unfortunately there was one plug that was massive enough to cover the adjacent outlet, so I only have use of 5 outlets in one of the kids' rooms, but it is still enough to keep everything plugged in and organized.
I cannot stress enough how great having the USB ports is. There are a few items in the house(tablet, ipod, camera) that charge via USB and it was always a pain to find a wall adapter and plug it in. Now, we can just plug it right into this unit, with the added benefit of having surge protection.
I also purchased 2 of the "mini" versions from Belkin (3 outlets, 2 usb) to move around easily in the house or take when traveling. These work great too, and they were about $10 each on Amazon. All in all, I spent less than $60 on the 3 big units and 2 mini ones, money very well spent.
All I need now is a way to organize all the cords and keep them untangled!
It looks pretty nice and offers a lot of plugs.
The USB charger on the other hand is not so great. Most phones (other than iPhones) detect that they are plugged in to a wall charger by having the two center pins on the USB plug shorted. This charger does not do that. I tried a couple different phones. The Samsung Focus didn't charge at all and the Desire Z (T-Mobile G2) and Dell Venue Pro charged in USB mode (like plugging into a PC, slowly).
Modifying a USB cable to short the two pins together would solve this issue, but that is annoying to have to do when this product advertises itself as a generic charger, not just for iDevices.
Edit 3/9/2013: I just tested my Galaxy Note 2 on the USB plugs and it reads it as an AC charger. It's possible that the Galaxy Note 2 can detect chargers designed to be iPhone compatible. Either way, it comes with a 2 amp charger, so charging on this things USB ports will be slower.
It works OK, but takes some time to charge the iPad (longer than the charger that it came with anyway). Looking at the Belkin packaging, in some small print at the back it says the USB ports are 5V and 750mA. From what I researched online for Apple's OEM chargers that come with their devices, the 10W iPad charger is 5V at 2.1A, and the 5W iPhone charger is 5V at 1A.
I just wish it were able to run at the same capacity as the OEM chargers to easily and quickly charge both devices in the same time as the OEM chargers.
