WORKS WELL - BRIGHT LIGHT
on April 24, 2014
The RAVPower® BOLT 30W/6A 4-Port USB Charging Station / USB Wall Charger is a good product. It feels and looks solid and performs as advertised. We have it on a utility table on the side of our kitchen, and it's used to charge a Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Dell 11z notebook. It charges all and stays cool. Actually very cool compared to the charger that came with the notebook.
It is a pleasure to have the charging station there instead of a power strip with three "wall warts" plugged into it. We keep the charging station at the back of the table with all but about 6" of cord tucked between the table and the wall. My wife then plugs in her devices and all looks organized.
I will say the blue led is super bright! It must be about 5 or 6 watts, compared to the kids night light of 1 watt. I originally used a hole punch to make a "dot" from black electric tape to cover it, but my wife did not like it as she then had no indicator light. She replaced it with a "dot" of blue painters tape; better but still too bright. She then added a second "dot" and it's perfect for her now. She can see the indicator light when she wants, and dosen't notice it otherwise.
I liked this so much, I purchased a second charging station, in black, for the top of my dresser and use it for my electronics. I did use the black "dot" on mine and I can tell the station is working when I plug into it and it shows "charging" on my cellphone or laptop and kindle.
If you have a few (up to four) devices to charge, don't hesitate to get one of these. It's a good product at a reasonable price.
