USB / Wall charger for Samsung Galaxy Ace (S5830) battery
on 25 February 2013
What is not clear on the advert is that this item is not compatible with UK mains 3-pin sockets and requires a travel adapter to plug into the mains socket. You can get one from e.g Tesco, but it basically doubles the cost of the unit! Also, the charger is not supplied with a USB lead, so you need to buy one with two flat ends in order to connect it to a normal USB2 outlet - more expense, and these leads are not normally available in supermarkets.
On the positive side, it works well, and I now always have at least one fully charged battery, without the need to have the phone connected to the mains for hours at a time. The USB socket works both ways, so while the unit is plugged in to the mains, charging a phone battery you can can also connect another item (e.g. a Kindle, or another phone) to the USB outlet simultaneously.
