I bought this ready for our trip abroad next year, but have since used it for our little holiday in Blackpool and it worked a treat. Charged both iphone and samsung s4 without any hassle and would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a charger like this.

Update: have tried to use this to charge the ipad and iphone at same time and it was died on us. Doesn't have enough power to charge the ipad it seems

I bought this charger because I was travelling with two mobiles, one camera and one ipad 2 which are all charged by usb cables. When it arrived I tested it at home (in the UK) and it worked ok first time with all four appliances plugged in but when I went abroad it didn't work not once so I had to buy two more usb chargers (1 for an iPad and iPhone and the other for my camera and blackberry).
This product is a load of rubbish and I would advise you NOT TO PURCHASE IT!!!

Thought this was a great product because with many devices i use they all have usb connectors and all in the same plug was a big help for space in the extension cables, However, after the first 24 hours of getting it it started buzzing i thought it was because it had 3 cables plugged into it unplugged 1 and it stopped after a few hours it started buzzing again so unplugged the 2nd cable and again stopped for a few hours and started with one cable in got fed up and put it in bin think il stick to an overloaded extenstion cable!!!

I have an Android phone, an iPad, a Kindle and a cordless toothbrush and all need a separate USB cable to charge with. This devices immediately gets rid of 3 plugs for you - I've tested it at full load using the 4 devices above and all have charged at the same time.

However I dropped 1 star because the USB opening is surrounded by clear plastic and when plugged in this shines (glow is too much of an understatement!) a bright blue colour - given that most of these devices are plugged into the wall by people's beds, why do manufacturers insist on putting in ultra-bright LEDs to keep you awake all night?! I bought 4 of these units, experimented on one (to find where the LEDs were and to see if the charger still worked if you broke the LEDs, and it worked afterwards) and found that if you drill a 3mm hole between 1/2 and 3/4 slots on the side with the label, you can put a jewellers screwdriver through, and with the palm of your hand drive the screwdriver in to break off the LEDs!! The unit continues to work without the LEDs, and you don't wake up in the middle of the night thinking aliens are abducting you!!

EDIT: By the end of December 2013 the last of the 4 units I'd bought had failed. Not sure if it was because of the LED mod or just poor quality product, but one by one they all just stopped charging. Seems to be a common fault with multiple-USB port plugin chargers, as others I've had (2 and 4) have all stopped working within a few months.

I bought four units of this item and then another four because the first supplier seemed unable to supply to France. All eight units turned up but in two quite different packaging. One supplier had typical bubble pack as is normal for small electrical items. the other came just wrapped in thin polythene sheet. They are all identical units. Overall the units don't seem very good quality, in particular the multi-adaptor clip-on units are quite flimsy.

But the main issue is that if you have an ipad connected and on charge and then plug an iphone into the same unit, it starts to "ping" and a blue light comes on. Its obviously not capable of charging more that one item at a time. So what's the point of having four charge ports?

I really wanted to like this product, as the various attachments go on snugly and the product looked well-made. However I received this product the first week of October, and it's now the first week of November and the product has broken and can not be fixed. The USB ports are surrounded by a panel of blue lights, which may keep you up at night if you charge your appliances near your bedside table. Also, I think the charge was a bit too strong. I live in Europe (not the UK), and the touchscreens stopped working on both my iPad and iPhone when they were plugged in. They charged very fast, when the product worked, which leads me to believe that too much electricity was going into my products.

I bought this as it has all then plugs needed for travelling. It arrived, I used it at home in the UK, on holiday in Spain and then doof, it stopped working. Replacements weren't available so I returned it for a refund. Pity.
Bought a "Masterplug SRGDU42PB USB Charging Surge Protected 2m Extension Lead Power Block with 4 Sockets" instead. Much more expensive but well worth it.

When I first got this product it was fantastic charging 4 Apple devices off one socket and can use anywhere in the world. Fantastic while it worked.

However it is flimsy and I had to use it carefully. The UK adaptor broke but was still useable. Then the whol unit stopped working - seems to have burnt out.

Very disappointed. Plugged in, charged ok, went to unplug and plug housing came away from the plug front and it just separated! Leaving me holding half a plug and bear wires and the other half in the socket! So waste of money! Should have paid more and bought the official only!

This product worked fine but suddenly stopped working after 3 months, very disappointing! When it was working, I had a concern about the blue LED light which was a bit annoying, especially when you use it in your bedroom.
