    This review is from: PowerGen Black 2.4-Amp (12 Watt) Dual USB Wall Charger w/Sviwal Plug Designed for Apple and Android Devices (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    .
    ** Update July, 2012 – There is a newer version of this with the ports clearly marked: PowerGen Dual Port USB Wall Charger – White

    – – – 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.

    Oddly, the ports are not marked on the charger, and there is no mention in the user manual of which port is which, or even any differences between the ports. (The amazon listing explains it, or see Tip below.)

    If you plug your Apple device into the wrong port, you’ll get slow charging (or none at all for iPad).

    I hope other reviewers will test charging speed for non-Apple tablets. The manufacturer’s info is sketchy on this.

    If you’re willing to understand and label the ports yourself, this high capacity, do-it-all charger is a good deal.

    – – – Similar PowerGen Models – – –

    I was confused about the 4 different flavors of this charger offered on amazon, so I emailed PowerGen. The 4 flavors are actually identical. The detailed product descriptions on amazon are also identical. They are listed with different titles to so that people looking for a device-specific charger will find the PowerGen.

    – – – Disclosure – – –

    The manufacturer gave me this product for review. I believe my review is impartial.

    – – – Pricing – – –

    In April 2012, the price of this 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 enough, could be better
    – 6-month warranty (per manual). Or is it 12 months (per listing)?
    – Branded product. Amazon reviews apply to this exact item.
    – Energy efficient (see Note 3)
    – Feel, fit and finish are OK
    – No cable included

    CONs:

    * Ports not marked
    – Glossy black finish shows off scratches, dust, and fingerprints
    – No UL or certification (it is marked ROHS = no excessive hazardous substances)

    – – – Alternatives – – –

    Many alternatives on amazon, but most have vague or contradictory info. I hope to update this over time.

    AmazonBasics Wall Charger – USB 2.1 Amp (1-port charger for iPad, iPhone…)
    Travel Charger U250 for HTC Thunderbolt (designed for non-Apple products up to 1 amp. Charges iPhone at 85% of full speed)

    – – – Tips – – –

    The port closest to the blue status light is the non-Apple port.

    – – – 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.

    30-50%. . . 50-70%. . . 70-90%. . . Avg . . . Charger

    35min . . . . 35min . . . . 39min . . . . 0.55 . . . Computer USB port (.5 amp)

    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.

    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. Smart devices are self-limiting as to how much current they will draw and it is safe to use a higher current charger as your smart phone for example will stop charging when it is full. Usually smart phones like our iPhone charge at 1 amp but they will charge faster and safely at 2.1 amps. The Apple iPad 2’s and iPad 3’s like 2.1 amps to charge with but will charge at 1 Amp at a slower rate. The iPad 3 is a power hog with an 11,560 mAh battery capacity and can use up to 1.24 amps just operating on a mobile wireless version. If it is plugged in and left on then it will charge very slowly even with the original Apple charger.

    The plug has a small blue status LED that indicates that the unit is plugged into a live outlet. I like it because the light is very small and dim and not bright like most wall plug LED’s. Your bedroom sometimes looks like Christmas with all of the items plugged in today’s modern world with all of the LED’s lit up at night.

    The unit also features protection circuitry that monitors over-heating, over-current and over-charging protection. The unit I received had the charging ports clearly marked and it included an instruction manual that was not bad.

    This is nice AC power charger and I like it a lot. For $9.99 it is a good buy and well worth the money for how it performs. It even works on 240 VAC and 50 Hertz so it is good for overseas travel as long as you take your European plug socket adapters.

    I was provided an evaluation unit for testing and agreed to provide a fair and honest review.

    Dual Port USB AC Charger, May 1, 2013
    By 

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    So excited to get this. We live in a world where electronics are all over the house. There is a light that comes on when it’s plugged in. It’s extremely bright, so put it somewhere that you don’t might lighting up. It worked great for about 2 weeks and quit working. I’ve tried several outlets and I threw it away. Won’t be buying another one.
