Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It's a fine solution to a tough problem, but unfortunately some of these signal wire configurations are directly contradictory to each other, (specifically Apple vs everyone else) leaving 3rd party chargers in a bind. They can't support all devices easily, even though they all use the same plug. The result is that lots of chargers don't charge lots of devices at full potential.
To learn more about the particulars of this, see my previous review of the 10 watt PowerGen charger here:
The PowerGen line has solved this problem by having each of their ports configured differently. This was true on the older 10 watt and remains true for this newer edition. The result is if you use the correct port, this device will work with more devices than any charger I know of. If you've got just about any Apple device you're covered. It'll cover almost all Android phones and many of the tablets, but some of the special tablets, it won't.
As yet another bonus, this edition improves on the older 10 watt version with a more visible and appropriate labeling... "A" for Apple products and "NA" for non-Apple products. On the previous 10 watt version it wasn't very obvious and was somewhat misleading being "2A" and "A".
The other area where the new charger excels, and brings itself up with the best in the market, is the mechanical design of the product, particularly on the part that plugs into the 12V adapter in the car. The older 10 watt product was a bit slippery and over time the vibration of being in a car would make it back out and lose its connection. This one is a better design and I've left it in my truck for months now without issue.
Back to device compatibility, based on my testing, their specs of what it'll work with are accurate. It charged both my Android phones as "AC" devices and my iPod touch and classic. It also does NOT work with my HP Touchpad, which is specifically mentioned in the specs.
It would be nice if it would work with the oddballs in addition to the mainstream, but seeing how it does better than any other device I know, and I've tested 6 now, it gets strong marks from me here.
(NOTE: the rest of the review was updated on 4/13/13, based on testing a new device from Anker that exposed some weaknesses in my test bench. As a result, I went back and re-tested this product):
This product has yet another impressive feature. All of the other products I have previously tested bridge the power between their ports, including the older 10 watt PowerGen unit. However, this unit has independent power for both rails. (for the techies out there: I tested this with resistive loads, and the voltage would only drop on the rails I heavily loaded and have no affect on the other rail's voltage or abilty to generate current.)
This is good, because one device won't affect the other. If you're charging your high-power phone and then you plug in your tablet, the phone's charging will be uninterrupted and not be slowed. That's very nice and something the other products won't provide.
In addition, there is some sort of load balancing going on between the ports. I can push either port to 2.2 amps and stay well within the USB spec'ed voltage value (greater than 4.75 volts). When I then tried drawing that much current from both ports, it went into it's auto-protection mode (that's a good thing, as it prevents the device from being damaged, as 4.4 amps/21 watts is beyond its capabilities) and the status LED started blinking to indicate this.
I then tried multiple combinations to see how much I could draw without going into auto-protection and I found as long as I kept it below 3.2 amps combined (over 16 watts) it would keep running like a champ. So, based on my latest testing this device can power just about any tablet in one port and just about any phone in the other, with one caveat: They can't be both from the same OS. You can have an Android phone and an iPad or you can have an iPhone and a Android tablet like the Samsung Galaxy, but you can't have an iPhone and and iPad because you can't configure both ports to support the same set of devices.
Nevertheless, until somebody creates a dual port device where both ports are configurable for Apple or Android, this is the best car charger on the market right now and gets 5 stars.
When I use the old chargers on it while using it in the car in that manner, the best I would get is a slow discharge. This was not good if I had long drives or would really need my phone later. So I needed something that could supply more power.
This car charger does that. But be warned, if you are using your phone as gps and radio like I do, it does not charge, what it does is keep it at the same level. This is good enough for my purposes.
Ill have to carry out more tests as in how fast it charges with nothing active and how it works with just gps. I will update the review then.
My issue is that if you have your device plugged into the charge and then plug the charger into the cigarette lighter port of your car, you will blow the internal 5.0A PowerGen fuse. I've done it twice now. If you plug the charger into the cigarette lighter port and let it turn on and then connect your device, it doesn't seem to have a problem blowing fuses. I know I could leave it plugged in all the time, but I generally like to remove items from auxiliary ports when I am not in the car.
I've never had this issue before with other chargers so it seems kind of odd to be doing with this one. Coincidence or design flaw?
I recommend this product, particularly if you have Bluetooth support for multiple devices in your vehicle. Although not necessary if you have your OEM USB cable, I eventually purchased extra USB cables for each device to leave in the vehicle. This works with any device that uses power over USB, like my mobile hotspot, but I haven't tried my laptop (which has its own 12v charging cable). I gave it 4 stars because no storage case was included.
