- Spend £30 and get Norton 360 21.0 - 3 Computers, 1 Year 2014 for £24.99. Here's how (terms and conditions apply)
This converter will allow you to charge your Apple, Android or other smartphone or tablet at high speed from any USB socket, even if the charger was not originally designed for your device. Simply plug your USB cable into one end, and the other end into a USB socket. It works on the same principle as our best selling Fast Charge Micro USB and Fast Charge Apple Cables, but this handy little adaptor allows you to use any good quality USB cable. If you've bought a powerful car or mains USB charger but find your device charges slowly, this adapter will most likely solve the problem. Devices such as Blackberry smartphones or the Sony PS Vita do not charge from many USB chargers, this adaptor fixes that.
It is not compatible with the Asus Transformer, or Samsung Galaxy Tab / Note models which use the wide shape connector. iPads on iOS7 or higher will charge at a max of 1A.
The adaptor is labelled as a 'fast charge only' on the casing, so anyone will know what it does straight away.
This adaptor will not increase charging speed if -
1) Your device is already charging at the max speed it supports (usually the same speed as from its original charger)
2) Slow charging is because you're using a low quality USB Cable
3) Slow charging is because you're using an under powered USB charger/socket."
