Ga Gadgets BLACK Portable Metal (with metal blade)&hellip by Ga Gadgets
2.0 out of 5 stars Noisy. Also... noisy!, 6 Mar 2014
This fan works fine, but is very, VERY noisy.

The star it gains over 1 (the lowest Amazon will allow) is due to the all metal construction, mechanical on/off switch and general impression of solidity.

The noise with mine seems to be related to the angle the fan is pointed at, downward is fine, upward starts okay then just gets worse. It's louder than a wonky PC.

I will hopefully find my USB cooling needs elsewhere, but wouldn't buy this again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 24 Oct 2013
Very handy device, strange selection of output labelling (current output would be more useful for me). I've been using a rivals dual USB outlet which seems to struggle with high current draw devices, taking a long time to charge, no such problem with this.

Have installed in my kitchen, used up to four ports simultaneously with no issues. I'd prefer to have some form of indicator so I don't leave it powered on unnecessarily, but given the proliferation of insanely bright blue LED's on most tech these days, this possibly isn't such a bad thing...

Seems well built, and I wasn't supplied this by Anker for review, bought as I was seeking an alternative to the above… Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Not convinced..., 28 Aug 2013
Bought a couple of these for use at home and away, and am not at all convinced it's capable of shoving out 2A from a single output. A 7800mAh external battery took a whole night to juice from 3/4 depleted, where a Nexus 7 charger managed it in 3 hours. I suspect this charger is possibly capable of 1A from either output, but not 2A overall.

And this item STILL didn't mange to get the last jolt in, the battery never indicated fully charged. Poor.
