Really fussy about cables and devices
on 13 April 2014
I have several devices such as smartphones, Blackberry, kindle, etc. And several "wall warts" that came with these. And laptops with USB ports. And various cables. And they all work perfectly with each other on any combination.
Except for this Masterplug. It simply won't work with some of the cables I have that work perfectly well the rest of the time. In particular I have a shorter cable that lives in my work bag, and I would love to use this rather than having three feet of cable trailing across the kitchen worksurface (where I wanted to use this plug to charge devices while keeping an eye on them for incoming calls, messages, emails etc).
It just does not work with some cables, or some devices, in combinations I can't really work out. And it seems especially fussy if the device is really low on battery, just when I need it most!
A great idea, ideal if you have few sockets or for holidays, but so badly carried out I can't recommend it.
