This charger is well made, looks quite snazzy and works very well indeed. It fits perfectly in my cigar lighter socket, which is a bit shallow and caused my old charger to regularly fall out. This one is a nice snug fit. Only tested so far on my Samsung phone but I'm sure it will work for anything else. The red LED is very subtle, something I appreciate when driving at night.

If you're having problems charging your phone then read on.
This was the second car charger I had ordered recently. The first was a Belkin - Micro Car Charger adapter 2100 mAh + ChargeSync cable for iPhone/iPod/iPad (F8Z689cw). This didn't appear to supply enough charge to my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and so ordered this PowerGen version. This seemed to have the same problem so running SatNav on my phone meant arriving at my destination with less battery than when I started. I was mystified and a bit disillusioned by these so called high current chargers until I stumbled upon the real culprit - the blooming cable!!! Turns out all but 2 of the many sync cables I own weren't able to supply the current needed to keep the phone charging. The original Samsung cable worked, also a very chunky flat cable I had did too, but all the others, including some other genuine Samsung cables didn't. I was amazed at discovering this fact, thought all these USB cables were basically the same. Seems like if you have a power hungry device you need something a bit chunkier to carry the current. So if you're having problems getting these chargers to supply enough juice, don't bin it, just try a different cable. Hope this helps.
P.S. Ordered VEO - Heavy duty MICRO USB DATA CABLE FOR BLACKBERRY SAMSUNG NOKIA HTC SONY ERICSSON - 1M black and can confirm this cable works well and is well made. They also make Apple versions too. K Bye x

5.0 out of 5 stars Power to the people... 14 Mar. 2013

I'm going to get this out of the way; this product is fantastic.

I bought this for use in-car (unsurprisingly) to charge my Nexus 7 and Samsung Galaxy S3. To put it through its paces, I set up the Nexus with Sygic (GPS navigation) on the highest performance setting. On plugin, battery rated 27% remaining. After a 25 minute drive, battery was at 40%.

That's an increase of 13% in 25 minutes while the unit was under heavy load.

That to me is simply incredible; I'm used to leaving the Nexus plugged in through USB and from 20 odd percent taking a good 7 hours to charge fully and that's without being under load.

I can't fault this at all and would really recommend, especially if you need to charge two devices at the same time. The NA port worked for the Nexus 7 no problem at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well designed charger 26 Oct. 2012
By Chris

This charger works fine with my smartphone, kindle and nexus 7. It stays inside the 12V socket without falling out even when upside down. The charging LED has a sensible brightness level so it won't distract you at night. I have bought 2 chargers before this one which were rubbish. Who designed this charger actually made an effort to produce a good product. 5 stars from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spot on charger 20 Nov. 2012
The Powergen Dual port car charger fits into your car cigarette lighter socket and enables you to charge your electronic devices whilst on the go.

There are two ports available marked up as N/A and A. The A port is specifically for Apple products such as ipad/pod and iphones. The port marked N/A is designated for all other compatible devices. The only device mentioned in the leaflet provided that cannot be charged is the Asus Transformer. There is no cable supplied with this charger so you must use the one supplied with your electronic device.

The charger fits nicely into the charging socket and feels solid enough with a good build quality and doesn't stick out too much in my opinion. When active there is a red light emitted from the charger ports so you can see it's active. Delivering 3.1 Amps this is ideal for the fast charging of your power hungry devices such as ipad, Kindle Fire and tablet devices. There is a fuse inside the charger which can be removed/changed just by unscrewing the end off and it will pop out. Simple enough.

The devices I tried it on were-

Kindle touch-Worked on both ports.
Kindle Fire- Worked on both ports.
Apple ipad- Only in the A port.
HTC Desire HD- In N/A port
Sansa Clip mp3 player- In N/A port.

After using this for a few weeks I've found that the charger performed well using the devices mentioned and they were charged quickly enough even when two were charging simultaneously. Obviously when charging two devices they may take longer to fully charge than when being charged alone.

Great little charger, no complaints.

I was supplied this for review.

The good news is that this charger (which I had supplied to me for review) charges iPads pretty fast. It's capable of delivering 3 Amps through either of the two USB ports (or 3 Amps split between them if you plug in two devices). However, while one of the ports (the "A" for Apple port) was able to charge any device I tried (including a Motorola phone, an iPad, an iPhone and a Walkman), the "NA" (for non-Apple, ie. standard USB) port wasn't able to charge the Motorola phone or the Walkman (it charged the iPhone, and it powered but didn't charge the iPad). I may have been unlucky with the choice of devices I tried to charge; in any case, it's worth reiterating that they all charged on the "A" port.

The design is a little busier than the other Powergen charger (PowerGen Power-U Dual USB 2A Heavy Duty Ouput Car Charger for HTC Sensation, Flyer, Thunderbolt, Desire Z S HD / Samsung Galaxy S2 S II Ace / Sony Ericsson Xperia ARC), but it's well-built and compact. There is a 3 Amp fuse inside the barrel; you're unlikely to ever need to change it. The barrel fits securely in the accessory port; when the device is powered, a small red LED glows. No USB cables are supplied: you can use the cables that came with your device.

I would recommend this as a fast charger specifically for an iPad. For the devices I happen to have, the other Powergen adapter has better compatibility.
