** 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.

- - - Pricing - - -

In April 2012, PowerGen dropped from 13 to 10. Nice.

PROs:

* Fast charging for Apple and non-Apple devices (see Note 1)
* Nice Price
* Doesn't block other outlets (see Note 2)
- LED power-on indicator (dim blue, not obnoxious)

OKs:

- Compact
- 12-month warranty
- Branded product. Amazon reviews apply to this exact item.

This Charger Completely melted down while charging my iPad 4. The unit melted a hole through it and it destroyed my amazon basics lightning cable. When I found it, it was burning, smoking and was so hot it burned my hand when I tried to unplug it. If I wasn't there to find it in time, my house may have burned down. Amazon refused to do anything about it because it was purchased about 10 months ago. If you still want to buy this thing, use extreme care when charging an iPad.

When I plug an iPhone 4S into the iDevice charging port, the charger makes a high pitched squealing noise. That behavior, combined with reviews by other buyers of this item catching on fire, convince me to return it.

If your home is like mine you are running out of wall sockets to charge all of your toys. Our iPhones, iPads, iPods, iPod Touches, Bluetooth headphones, and on and on all have a separate wall charger. Here is a nice product; no I mean a great product that features two USB sockets for your smart phones, tablets and accessories. I have successfully charged the following devices without any problems:

* iPad 2 only on the A port
* iPad 3 only on the A port
* iPod 60 GIG only worked on the NA port as it is an old school Apple charging design
* iPod touch on both ports
* Kindle Fire on both ports
* Kindle Keyboard on both ports
* iPhone 4 on both ports

I like that the wall charger has two USB charging ports and it can charge two devices at the same time. (Like our two iPhones simultaneously)

The unit did not charge the HP TouchPad as claimed but so far I have tried a dozen different charging devices and none of them will charge the HP TouchPad except the original HP charger and the HP Touchstone. The HP TouchPad requires a strong 5.3 VDC at 2.08 Amps. When I tried it I got the HP error message that the charging device was not supplying either enough voltage or current to effectively charge it.

The unit can provide up to 2.1 amps which is the rated charging rate for an Apple iPad 3. If you plug in multiple devices they both will still charge (They share the 2.1 Amps) but if one of them requires more than ½ of the 2.1 amp power it will charge more slowly than with its own AC wall charger. Plugging in only one device provides up to 2.1 Amps to either USB port.

This charger burned a hole in my couch and fried my kindle fire. If you like your device working and not on fire do not buy this.

Was laying in bed while charging iPad 2 when all of a sudden a flame started coming from the charger. I quickly blew it out and unplugged the charger. It's a good thing I was home and in the same room or my house might of been burned down. Think twice about this charger.

I was excited to buy this charger because it was cheap and had really good reviews on Amazon. However after receiving it I noticed two important things.

First, it is NOT UL LISTED. This means I can't use it. I won't risk causing a fire - any non-UL charger scares me and should scare you!

Second, it can't charge my iphone and ipad at the same time. Instead the second port is for "non listed devices" - not sure what that means but it's a useless port to me.
