5.0 out of 5 stars Fast Charger
Does what it says - charges stuff fast, probably knocks about 30 mins off the charging time of my iPhone when in the car.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fast Charging port is NOT fast
This device has two USB ports, one port is 1.2A and follows the official "USB Battery Charging Spec". This port can be used for quickly charging most Android phones, or other devices compatible with the official spec.
The second port, marked "Fast Charging" however uses the incompatible proprietary Apple charging method. If you connect a non-apple device to this...

3.0 out of 5 stars Fast Charging port is NOT fast, 18 April 2012
This review is from: TomTom Universal High-Speed Multi-Charger (iPod, iPhone, Smartphones) (Accessory)
This device has two USB ports, one port is 1.2A and follows the official "USB Battery Charging Spec". This port can be used for quickly charging most Android phones, or other devices compatible with the official spec.
The second port, marked "Fast Charging" however uses the incompatible proprietary Apple charging method. If you connect a non-apple device to this port, it will only draw 0.5A at most, which is not enough for most devices to charge and be used at the same time.

This is very confusing as the TomTom description implies that this port will work with any high power USB device, which simply is not true.

Just wanted to add 2 comments,
1) You can trick a compliant device into drawing more then 0.5A on the "Fast Charging" port by using a special "charging-only" USB cable or adapter. So NOT a regular USB data cable! Such a charging-only cable has the 2 data pins (D- and D+) crossed which will cause the device to draw more power.

2) I just got a new car, a 2012 BMW 3-series (F30) and the charger will not fit with USB cables attached in the centre console.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent...., 1 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TomTom Universal High-Speed Multi-Charger (iPod, iPhone, Smartphones) (Accessory)
This is something I wished I found sooner. The speed at which the fast charge port works is amazing. My Xperia Z1 charged in less than 30 minutes from almost totally drained. It sits quite tall when plugged, but should fit in most cars... Glad I didn't buy some of the cheaper ones out there. Would highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars TomTom High Speed Charger, 16 Jun. 2011
This review is from: TomTom Universal High-Speed Multi-Charger (iPod, iPhone, Smartphones) (Accessory)
It does what it says on the box. Not only can you use 2 USB items, you still have use of the 12v power socket. A must buy for mobile phone users.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful gadget, 25 Sept. 2013
This review is from: TomTom Universal High-Speed Multi-Charger (iPod, iPhone, Smartphones) (Accessory)
Well made and useful to plug in my Tom Tom, iPhone and Kindle all at once. A real boon. The only slight problem is the lower socket is a little awkward to access

Item arrived very quickly. Really it does what it says on the tin, it fits well into the charging point and stays there. I can run the satnav and charge the phone at the same time.

Fast charge is great for the car and with pass-through you don't lose a socket. All this and you TomTom is powered too!
