It blew up!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AnkerŪ 40W 5-Port Family-Sized Desktop USB Wall Charger with PowerIQ™ Technology for iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, iPad Air, Mini, Galaxy S5, S4, S3, Note 3, 3, Tab 4, 3, 2, Pro, HTC One (M8), Google Nexus 4, 5, 7, 10, External Battery, PS Vita, Gopro and more (White) (Electronics)
First time I plugged it in there was a loud bang from the unit. Something blowing up inside the white box.
Returned for refund.
Reading other reviews I see that only two days ago another Amazon customer 'AitkenNick' left a review saying exactly the same happened to him. Sounds like a defective batch being sent out by Amazon.

When mine blew it was loud enough and bright enough to make me drop the unit. I honestly thought that I had a 110/240V unit that I had not looked how to switch across.
Annoyed that I have to wait till Amazon receive it back before I get my refund.

No. I'm not reviewing Amazon's return policy. I'm reviewing the product, the product failed on first use, therefore the review of the PRODUCT was not good. The review of the supplier is about how they handle returns.
I would have thought that the whole PRODUCT review name gave it away!

I agree a single faulty device is not worthy of negative feedback unless Amazon or the seller refuse to remedy the problem.
