DO NOT PURCHASE!!!!!!
** Sept 2013 update. The updated model has the ports marked. The new swing-away prongs are nice for travel. The price is now usually $10. I have changed my review from 4-stars to 5-stars.
- - - Speed Matters- - -
Sometimes you need to charge in a hurry. Even if a charger "works with your device" it may be painfully slow. Get one that will charge your devices at full speed (like the one that came with your device). This is not so simple. Product info is often unclear. Reviewers are often unclear.
For starters, the "Amps" need to be high enough. That's usually 1 Amp for smartphones, about 2 Amps for tablets. (A higher amp charger is always OK.)
The messy part is, Apple devices use their own rules to decide charging speed. A designed-for-Apple charger may be slow to charge non-Apple devices, and vice versa, even if its Amp rating is high enough.
- - - About this PowerGen Wall Charger - - -
PowerGen gets it right by optimizing one port for Apple products (including iPad) and the second port for non-apple products. The two ports make it versatile, even if you never charge two devices at once.

- - - Disclosure - - -
The manufacturer gave me this product for review. I believe my review is impartial.
- - - Notes - - -
Note 1: Charging speed - I tested using a 3-month old iPhone 4S while on/locked. These results do not apply to other devices. I did not test tablets or other phones.

Avg is "percent per minute" overall -- from 30% charged to 90% charged.
Note 2: Blocking other outlets. Seems like small thing, but it can be a hassle. Unplugging lamps, alarm clocks, etc to charge your phone? Just say no (or carry an extension cord).
Note 3: Energy efficient: With no load, charger stays cool, and my Belkin energy monitor says zero watts. While charging iPhone, charger gets warm, but not hot. Consumes 6.7 watts, most of which transfers to the iPhone.
About the reviewer: I try to be impartial and directly compare other products. 30% of my reviews are 5-star reviews. For reviews of free samples from manufacturers: 12% are 5-star reviews.

Thankfully we got the charger unplugged before anything else was damaged.
If you search these reviews for the string "hazard" you will find other similar reports.
If you are looking for better option, I would suggest http://www.amazon.com/Photive-Desktop-Charger-Intelligent-Technology/dp/B00LMIA9L4 which is rated for 50W and has 6 intelligent USB ports and has been working very well for us. (Had mostly switched over to the Photive 6 port charger, with the Powergen as a spare/backup, but no longer.)
We did notify Amazon Customer Support and was told that the info would be forwarded to their investigation team.
If you look closely at the pictures, you can see the seam between the outer casing and the back panel. This product came apart at that seam when pulled out of the socket. Most of the body came forward when I pulled it, leaving the back panel stuck in the wall socket. Resulting spark hit my index finger leaving painful but non serious burn.
Didn't expect to have my life flash before my eyes when unplugging it, so I must give one star.
