I recently purchased this kit for the 12v adapter. Using a Nexus 7 for monitoring engine parameters uses quite a bit of power, so much that several other adapters could not provide the output needed to keep my tablet charged while it was running... However, with this charger, my tablet remains fully charged, even with the brightness turned up to 100%, and as a bonus, it has a second port that allows me to rapid charge my iphone as well. Solid build, cords that came with it are of good length, and better then any other 12v chargers I've used in the past.

Honestly bought for the cables, preferred black ones to match black iphone. Tried the RND apple licensed ones on here RND Apple CERTIFIED Cable for iPad, iPhone, iPod (3.2 Feet/black), it was OK, but these are perfect! They're just a little longer on the plug, and the sides are a bit square making it easy to grab and insert with one hand. The cables have a strain relief on the plug side as well so they're better than even the apple cables which eventually pull out and fray.

And the charger is sweet! I've never seen a 4.2Amp car USB charger. Its awesome! With each port giving 2.1Amps, your iphone, ipod, etc will charge faster than a normal, perfect for quick charge on the go, and you can simultaneously charge your tablet at the needed 2.1Amps.

Excellent quality all around. At $10, it' a steal.

Everyone these days has some type of iPhone, smartphone, or other tech device that can be charged or powered via a USB cord. We've all also run into the problem of not having enough DC ports in our vehicles (unless it's a car made in the past couple of years). This device allows me to charge my phone and other device (or a passengers device) and still leaves my other DC port available for another device such as GPS or Radar Detector.

There's much controversy as to iPad specific charging device and their ability to charge the iPhone and other apple devices at a faster rate tan their own respective charges. Despite the issues, I will say that from my experience my iPad charger does in fact charge my iPhone and shuffle at a fast rate than the stock charger. This device provides that same accelerated rate.

The only drawback is that I moved from a flush fitting Belkin charger which blended in with my DC Port. This device sticks out about an inch due to the additional port and cooling required for the higher amperage. If you're not picky this will not affect you at all.

Also, the cords that come with this product are a tad long. I know that apple's stock cords are too short for most people's tastes, but these are on the other end of the spectrum. One positive though is that if your vehicle does not have a DC port in the rear passenger area, the length of the cables will easily reach to that area.

Like I said earlier, for the price and performance, this product deserves 5 stars.

This is my second Powerbolt 4.2 charger. This time around specifically only for the two cords. How many LONG iphone cords have you purchased that were nothing short of junk and maybe, just maybe if your lucky, lasted a few months or a few days? These cords will make you a believer that there are in fact decent long cords out there. At 6' 2", better than the short OEM cord that came with your device, heavy duty and long lasting. My originals, over a year old. Nice tight plugs at both ends and fits my 4s with OtterBox Defender Case with ease. Your long iphone cord quest is over! I purchased several for gifts and have received many thanks!

I'm including several photos of the cords, obviously the white cord is the OEM iphone cord and the black cord from the Kensington

EDITED 3/16/14 (based on info learned from comments). I will keep it simple because this product is not that complex. It is a very good iPhone charger, and fits like a glove in the 12v plug. The cables supplied are very very long! I just have a mustang, so essentially two people are in my car all the time. The wires are more suited toward giving the user control while being charged, if you have kids in the back seat or something. The extra wire, I just bundled up with a rubber band. I'm glad they provided more than less, that's different from what companies usually do.

Now one thing I don't like is that my car (Ford) is not set up to shut off power to the 12v connectors when the engine is off. So if you leave an ipod, iPhone, etc. plugged in, it will still charge the device and draw energy from a car. The problem is that with a car off, the alternator is not running. Without getting into a possible debate, when a car is running, the alternator is generating a small amount of electricity to aid the use of the car battery. It's why the batteries last as long as they do. With everything off, and a phone, tablet or both plugged into the charger, it can really shorten the life of the battery. To prevent this, you can unplug the charger from the 12v port after every time you use it (unless you have a Toyota or just unplug your devices).

I recommend this product for its price, quality and compact size.

This charger is pretty slim compared to other chargers, so it doesnt stick way way out. It charges 2 gadgets at once. Best output is for a tablet and a smartphone. But ive charged everything with this thing in the car. Bluetooth headphones, batter pack, usb to AA/AAA batterie charger and so on. Works great, looks good and it has a nice little light to let you know its on and charging.

I dont have an iPhone 5 so I gave the lightning cable to a friend and just use all the standard usb to micro/etc cables that came with my gadgets and they work perfectly with this charger.

We bought 2 of these chargers and use them on family trips to keep everyones phone and tablets charged up. One in the front for the adults and 1 in the back for the kids and bc its dual port they dont have to fight over who gets to charge 1st and who has to wait.

5 stars easily for quality and the ability to charge things fast and keep the kids tablets charged up even while they watch movies on their tablets!
