My wife and I tour by motorcycle but still want to take the gadgets. Phones, laptop, satnav, eBook reader, cameras, etc. All the chargers take up space mainly as all have long leads with huge British plugs. On foreign trips I have solved this by making up a couple of short leads with figure 8 plugs to Euro plug. For the UK I have till been stuck with the big three pin plug - until these devices came along.

Now I have the folding charger and matching folding plug which together give a great space saving as well as not having sticking out plug pins to damage cases. The charger is powerful enough to take care of all USB charged kit quickly including my iPad, iPhone, satnav and helmet Bluetooth receiver. The folding plug has a figure of eight plug on the other end so handles my MacBook and camera battery chargers. The maker is somewhat over generous with the lead length on the plug which is nearly two metres long. I cut this down to about 10 inches and found a rewire able figure of with plug on eBay.

I saw another review in which the reviewer commented that he had dropped a star as he was concerned about after sales service - although he had not had any reason to request such a service. I emailed a query to the makers before buying and had a detailed answer the same hour. The item was delivered the next day and I can't really see a need for after sales service. It's a cheap plug, if it breaks I will bin it. So five stars.

Here's my two-pennyworth:
- it's a welcome replacement for the normal clunky 3-pin monster.
- it works.
- the fold-out earth pin could be better. It locks in the open position but not when folded away, so it could wander from the stowed position and possibly get broken if loose in a bag. Treat with care. For this I've deducted one star.
- it has an indicator LED: red means charging, green means not charging or fully charged.
- the instruction sheet that came with mine says the output is 1000mA although on the unit itself it clearly states 2100mA. ThinPlug also sell a 1000mA version and I suspect these instructions are used for both (why anyone would buy the lower power version for virtually the same price I don't know). For your peace of mind you can double-check you have the right model by reading what it says on the unit.

This unit should handle any device that requires USB power up to 2100mA. I think iPads require around 1500mA (I don't have one so I can't measure it, but other confirm they work OK); I do have a Nexus 7 and 10, both are high power devices with 2000mA chargers and this unit handles them just fine. Mobile phones will require less. You will need (probably already have) a suitable USB cable that connects from the standard USB socket on this unit to your device.

Been looking for a mains USB charger like this for ages. Handy to carry with a retractable USB lead to charge your devices when you have access to a 240v UK socket.

Build quality is OK. But as you would expect from a small/lightweight device like this, strength is not going to be it's strong point. When folded it feel very robust. When open it feels a little 'delicate' and I'll certainly take care.

Instructions say output is 1A. However, on the item itself, it says 2A.

As a regular traveller, carrying round loads of bulky and pointy UK 3 pin chargers is a proper pain. This charger solves all that, charges everything (iPad, iPod, Kindle, speakers, hard drives) that I carry around, apart from my stupid Blackberry Torch (never buy one of these 'phones - quite possibly the most useless piece of junk ever). However, the Thincharger is a great product...well pleased.

I have been after something like this for ages. UK 3-pin plugs are a design nightmare and completely unsuitable for portable equipment, especially iPads and iPhones. For about three years various designers have been coming up with alternatives that win lots of design awards but never actually see the light of day, despite extensive coverage in the gadget columns of magazines and newspapers. When the first ones finally did appear and were combined with a USB charger, none of them seemed powerful enough to power an iPad. This one (the 2100ma version) does (I have just charged my iPad2 without problem and nothing seemed to overheat). Thinplug does another version which has a less powerful output and I believe that will only work with a phone, so be careful which one you get.

I can only assume that the long delay in releasing these things on the market is because the award-winning designers, as usual, couldn't find investment funding or a manufacturer in Britain. As bulky and unwieldy 3-pin plugs are a specifically British problem, that is quite a drawback. I suspect the rival designers have finally thrown in the towel and sold the rights to some Chinese manufacturer.

Why have I only given it four stars? As I say I suspect that these things are being produced by a Chinese manufacturer and Chinese companies are dreadful at customer support or marketing. I have sent numerous emails to Thinplug trying to make sure it would work with an iPad before I bought one and so far I have never had a reply. In the end I just took a gamble and it appears to have paid off. I suspect that if the charger goes wrong I may as well just throw it in the bin, because customer support is non-existent and the manufacturer's grasp of English doesn't inspire confidence.
