Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this charger. I particularly like the fact it is nicely styled and seems to have separate microchips to control the voltage etc. on each output, so no having to find the appropriate holes to get the fastest charge.
But here's the thing that really impressed me - its power consumption. I was expecting it to sit there drawing a few watts of power when nothing was plugged in, but not a bit of it! My meter states at idle it uses 0-0.5 watts - the lowest reading it can display (so basically almost nothing). When my iPad mini Retina is plugged in it draws power until it is charged, and drops back to 0-0.5 watts. When I put the screen on, it starts using a few watts, but drops back when screen goes off. I'm delighted! Obviously a big part of that credit goes to Apple and their power design, but it's nice that the charger isn't acting as the weak link.
