    Review for use with Nexus 7 Tab,Nexus Galaxy phone, Samsung Galaxy 7.7 Tab, Sandisk Sansa Clip mp3 player, October 8, 2012
    By 
    Ali Julia (boston, mass) –
    (#1 REVIEWER)
      
    (#1 Hall OF FAME REVIEWER)
      

    I tested PowerGen Dual Port USB Car Charger with Nexus 7 Tablet, Samsung Galaxy 7.7 Tablet, and Samsung Galaxy Nexus cell phone, and SanDisk Sansa Clip+ player. My original test for Nexus devices was using Jelly Bean 4.1, I repeated the tests for Jelly Bean 4.21 and saw a significant difference. I updated this review to show the differences between two releases.
    I received PowerGen car charger for testing from the manufacturer to write an honest and unbiased review and you will find both pluses and minuses of my experience in this review.

    I am attaching a collage of 3 photos labeled with numbers 1 through 3 under customer photos that I will be referencing in this review.

    The first thing I noticed that this car charger is fairly short (3 inches in length, 1 inch by 1 2/8 in width). Photos #1 shows this plug plugged in.

    The plug has two ports labeled “A” and “NA” which stands for Apple and Non-Apple devices. I own all Android devices but I tested both ports to see their behavior with my devices. The charger comes without a USB cord, so tested it with the USB cords that came with my devices.

    I used Battery App to determine how each device recognized the external battery pack. ‘AC’ status means the charging is at full charging rate. ‘USB’ status indicates charging at a lower charging rate. ‘Discharging’ status means that the charging rate is below the power that the device is consuming so it slows down the discharge rate but does not re-charge.

    The key findings:
    (1) Samsung Galaxy 7.7 cannot be charged with this car charger with either port
    (2) “A” port provides reduced power for some non-Apple devices and does not work for others
    *** Update 1/11/2013 ***
    I repeated the test with Nexus 7 running Jelly Bean 4.21 and both ports are now charging it at AC rate. The original test which showed poor performance on Apple port was Nexus 7 running Jelly Bean 4.1.
    I also retested Galaxy Nexus Phone running CyanogenMod 10.1 version of Jelly Bean 4.21, both ports also show charging at AC rate.

    The table below summarizes my findings:

    Nexus 7 Tablet
    ————–
    A port — discharging (Jelly Bean 4.1)
    A port — AC (Jelly Bean 4.21)
    NA port — AC

    Samsung Galaxy Nexus Phone
    ————————–
    A port — USB (Jelly Bean 4.1)
    A port — AC (Jelly Bean 4.21)
    NA port — AC

    Samsung Galaxy Tablet 7.7 (photo #2 and $3 show Galaxy tablet is running battery app and showing “discharging” on both port)
    ————————–
    A port — discharging
    NA port — discharging

    SanDisk Sansa Clip+ MP3 Player
    ——————————
    A port — charged at USB rate
    NA port — charged at AC rate

    The behavior with Nexus devices was consistent and good on “NA” port. After upgrade to Jelly Bean 4.21 both Nexus devices are charging at AC rate on the Apple port.

    Samsung Galaxy Tablet 7.7 did not work (was discharging) in both ports.

    The MP3 player worked in both ports, but as USB rate in “A” port and at “AC” rate in in “NA” port. When I charge Sansa MP3 with a standard AC charger (photo #3), the MP3 player goes into charging mode, displaying the charging animated icon, the MP3 content is not played. When MP3 was plugged into the PowerGen plug (photo #3) it continued to play the content. I listen to books on my MP3 player so this caused me to move forward in my book and I had to manually reset my position by a few chapters to get back to where I was when I started charging. The positive side of this, is that is possible to continue listening while MP3 is recharging.

    To summarize:

    I liked:
    ———
    1. Good behavior with Nexus devices.
    2. Solution for MP3 player with built-in battery
    3. Can charge two devices (but one at a reduced rate for non-Apple devices)

    I did not like:
    ————–
    1. Did not work with for my Samsung Galaxy tablet
    2. (Not applicable after upgrade to Jelly Bean 4.21) For non-Apple devices one port has less power or does not work
    3. (Not applicable after upgrade to Jelly Bean 4.21) For non-Apple devices the less useful plug takes up a little extra room

    Overall, after upgrade to Jelly Bean 4.21 this plug has an excellent performance on both ports for Android devices.

    This review is from: PowerGen Dual USB 3.1A Car charger Designed for Apple and Android Devices – White (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    We own a ton of electronic devices and since they are all portable they go with us in our vehicles. Toss in a couple of grandkids and add in their equipment and then you have a lot of electronic devices being used on long trips that need to be charged. You might also be limited to the number of car power sockets that are available in your vehicle. Most USB car chargers have one port and they are limited to 1 Amp or 2 Amps output. This big brother of all chargers has two USB ports and can handle 15 watts of DC power or 3.1 Amps of total charging power. That means I can charge my iPad 3 and my iPhone simultaneously without any issues and at full speed.

    This is a good car charger that features two USB charging ports that can be used at the same time. One USB port is designed for Apple products and it is labeled with an A. The NA port can charge your iPhone and any other compatible USB device. My iPad 2 and my iPad 3 could only charge in the A port. Both outputs are rated at 3.1 Amps but the total current out of both ports combined while in use at the same time is 3.1 Amps

    The unit comes with no cables but since it is touted as a universal charger and there are so many different types of charger cables I cannot fault them for not supplying one. Many chargers with cables are over $20 to $25 and the cables may only fit one family of devices.

    Pros
    * Dual port
    * Charge an iPhone in either port
    * Can charge the iPad 2 or 3 in the Apple A port at 2 amps even if you are charging your iPhone at the same time
    * Both ports charge up to 3.1 Amps if only one port is being used
    * Nice red LED light around USB ports so you can see it in the dark, know it is in a live car charging port and you can see the USB plug location.
    * Max 15 watts of charging output which will charge two iPhones at the same time quickly.
    * Self-monitoring circuitry protects for over-heating, over-current and over-charging protection.
    * Provides fast charging of an iPhone 4 using which is very useful if you are in a hurry.
    * Features four spring loaded retention balls to securely hold the charger into the car DC power plug

    Cons
    * Charger body is longer than many plugs, it can be easy to bump but it is nicely designed and functional.

    Products I tested it with:
    * Apple iPhone 4 works in both ports
    * iPad 2 worked in the Apple port only
    * iPad 3 worked in the Apple port only
    * Kindle File worked in both ports
    * Kindle Keyboard worked in both ports
    * HP TouchPad did not work in either port as the specifications state.
    * It is also not compatible with the Asus Transformer or the Motorola Xoom

    This is a good product and the price is good also. It provides excellent performance and it worked well in all of my testing. I highly recommend it to you.

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

    Customer Video Review Length:: 1:43 Mins

    I’ve had the opportunity to test several PowerGen products recently and this PowerGen Dual USB Car Charger follows in the tradition of the other products I’ve tested. It is well-built, performs well and provides a lot of value for the price particularly when compared to competing products.

    There is really not too much to discuss… it is simply a dual-port USB car charger. It will power and/or charge most, but not all USB powered devices such as smartphones, GPS units, tablet devices, MP3 players, etc. It is 3.1A which is quite a bit more than most standard AC or car chargers that normally would provide either 1A or 2.1A charging. Another nice touch with this charger is the LED light placed between the two USB ports that indicates power is reaching the unit.

    What is somewhat unique with the PowerGen car charger is that it has a USB port (clearly labeled “A”) that is specific to Apple products to ensure optimum performance to those Apple devices. The other port is clearly labeled “NA”, or non-Apple, and is to be used for most other devices. My iPhone had a 70% charge. With WiFi turned on I used the PowerGen Apple port and the phone was charged to 100% in 50 minutes. My iPhone did get fairly warm during charging, no doubt due to the 3.1A charge rate.

    In Lithium-Ion battery charging, it is generally recognized that fast charging can diminish battery longevity since heat is the enemy of LIthium-Ion batteries. Slower rate charging will degrade the battery less quickly and is the preferable way to charge a Lithium-Ion battery. It should also be noted that Lithium-Ion batteries prefer being charged frequently as opposed to deep discharge, full charge cycles. It’s better to keep them “Topped Off” with a full charge after using. The exception would be during long-term storage where you ideally would want to have about a 50% charge in the battery prior to storage.

    I was able to use the PowerGen as a power source for my Garmin and TomTom GPS units in my cars. So not only did it charge the internal batteries in those GPS devices, but it continued to power them just as if I were plugging the GPS into the power port of my car, with no USB car charger interface.

    The PowerGen is very solid in construction and incorporates an LED between the two USB ports to give an indication that power is reaching the charger. What is also reassuring is that the circuity has charging protection built-in and will stop charging when the device has been fully charged. I’ve had other USB car chargers and the PowerGen seems to be of higher quality than any of the others. I do have some concern with the 3.1A charging however as my iPhone did get quite warm and I do worry that frequent charging at this higher rate might have some long-term consequences with battery longevity.

    The manufacturer provided me with this item for review.

    This review is from: Mediabridge High Output Dual USB Car Charger For iPad and iPhone (Dual Port High Output Design: 1.0 Amp USB for iPhone; 2.1 Amp for iPad or additional iPhone) (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    Although I would’ve liked this product a little more if the amperage for BOTH ports were 2.1, this product is the best car USB car charger out there in my opinion (as of 5/13/2012). High output, and two ports instead of perma-mounted cables, which gives you options for what kind of USB to use (mini, micro, etc). Although I don’t own any devices that would require 2.1 amps (such as the iPad), the high amperage allows my phone to charge faster than even the one wall charger that the phone originally came with, WHICH, by the way, isn’t the case ALL the time, but it is for me (Motorola Razr Maxx). No, I don’t know what the max amperage my phone pulls, but the high amperage shaves about an hour (from four hours) off a full charge. It depends on the device and how much its allowed to pull from the charger. For those people who are worried whether or not the charger is too “powerful,” it’s probably not, if it’s a USB device you’re trying to use. While the VOLTAGE (which will always be 5V ±5%, hopefully) is sent by the charger to the device, the AMOUNT of power is PULLED by the device itself. Think of drinking water. You’re going to drink as much as you NEED, regardless of how much water is available.

    Edit (2/9/2013): So, after some use, this charger seems to have broken :-( I was pretty excited about this product in the beginning, as very few car chargers have such high amperage on top of multiple ports. However, it broke. With moderate use, it stopped functioning as it should in about 2 months. A bit late on the update, but I was reminded of this product by another review I was writing. So, my initial rave review is now down. I don’t know if this is the case for all of these, or if I just received a lemon, but there you go with my experience with this product. All that stuff I said about how this stuff works is still correct, though, so I’d advise anyone looking for a charger keep that in mind.

    This review is from: Mediabridge High Output Dual USB Car Charger For iPad and iPhone (Dual Port High Output Design: 1.0 Amp USB for iPhone; 2.1 Amp for iPad or additional iPhone) (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    This is a little bulky, and I knew this when I bought it. Altho it is a little smaller than I thought it would, which is good. I bought it to be used in my work vehicle where I need power.. plenty of it. I charge specialized meters for testing communications cables, use an iPad out in the field along with a Kindle Fire, iPhone, and other things that can be charged thru usb. This works flawlessly with everything i’ve thrown at it, and a couple of techs are looking into getting one for their work vehicle also. This charger almost always has something plugged into it to be charged up, if not two things at once, and this does not let me down. Easily 80% of the work day it is being used to charge at least one thing, if not two.
    The packaging was very well done, simple enough instructions, and is a nice tight fit in the holder. Not sloppy at all and stays put. I also like how well they marked the two ports for 2.1 and 1.0. Very easy to see and read. The pictures that another reviewer posted are exactly the way mine arrived also. I was very impressed with the packaging.

    Pros… you just read them :)

    negatives: none

    I plan on buying a couple more.. one for my personal vehicle, and one to keep with the laptop, and a couple of guys at work like it well enough to order one for themselves. I highly recommend this. You won’t disappointed

    Requires modification to charge Android devices in 1.0A AC mode, May 26, 2012

    This review is from: Mediabridge High Output Dual USB Car Charger For iPad and iPhone (Dual Port High Output Design: 1.0 Amp USB for iPhone; 2.1 Amp for iPad or additional iPhone) (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    Based on the reviews and product description of this device, I was lead to believe that it would charge an Android phone at full AC power mode (not USB 0.5amp mode). Based on that information I ordered several of these for a medium-scale deployment of devices at my work.

    Long story short: This device will not charge an Android device in AC power mode. As soon as you plug it in, the Android device enables USB charging mode.

    I’m hoping that I can figure out a way to crack the unit open and short the middle pins (which forces AC charging mode for Android devices on other car chargers)…

    I’m giving it two stars for excellent build quality and packaging.

    Update: I figured out how to disassemble the unit and it turns out to be quite easy.

    The high build quality of this unit actually enhances it’s ability to be disassembled, modified and reassembled. You can do it all with a single flat-bladed screwdriver (and a soldering iron). Resassembly doesn’t require any superglue like some of the other units that are popular to mod.

    Once the unit was disassembled, I looked on the back of the circuit board and found 2 places where there were 4 small pins in a row. I put a small blob of solder across the middle pins on each of them and reassembled the whole unit.

    I went out to the car to test it and sure enough, all my android devices see it as an AC charger and start charging in high-speed mode.

    I will add one star to my rating due to the excellent build quality enabling an easy modification.
