5.0 out of 5 stars Very worthwhile purchase., 7 Aug 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Universal USB 4-Port Power Supply Charger (Fits: iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 5, iTouch, Archos, iPod series, Camera, MP3, Gameboy, NDS, PSP, PSP Go, Mobile phones, MP4 Players, Archos or any Gadget powered via a 5V USB Port) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
The only thing is that the tech details say this is a 500mAh when in actual fact it is 2A output, which in actual fact is what I wanted. Just annoyed that the different adapters do not work on the Kensington model I already have. not to worry, whoever of us travels (the wife or myself) will just take this one with us. Recommend this to anyone like us who wants to be able to travel and have plugged in your iPod with some travel speakers and your phone, and maybe something else, all at the same time. Very happy.

They're being scrupulously honest, if you think about it: it's 500mA per socket. The total may be 2A, but you can't draw a single 2A current unless you make up a *very* odd cable. :)

Re the adaptors: I made the following comment on the Kensington model which is worth reproducing here:

If you remove the adaptor altogether, the socket thus exposed will accept a standard IEC (C7) "figure-8" mains lead
Figure 8 mains lead 2.5Amp 230/240v AC 50Hz 1 metre cable or Ex-Pro Mains Lead / Cable Figure 8 to USA / Canada - 2 Pin Flat Version. or Maxsima - 2 Pin Euro Plug to Figure 8 Mains Power Lead Cable, 1.5 meter. By Maxim Foto Supplies - which is much more versatile: you can plug the charger into a socket but have the items to be charged on a tabletop some distance away. I took mine to the USA, and bought a US-plug to IEC(C7) cable from Radio Shack.

What an excellent observation, about the IEC mains lead connection, I will see if that works with my USB charger. Thanks for sharing that.

Yes it is 2A output, but each port is 500mA... 2A divided by the four ports = 500mA

So if you only use one or two ports at a time, can this provide more than 500mA at these ports up to a total of 2A?

Thanks

I'm guessing not. If that's an issue for you, a better solution is:Anker® 40W 5-Port Family-Sized Desktop USB Wall Charger with PowerIQ Technology for iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, iPad Air, Mini, Galaxy S5, S4, Note 2, 3, Tab 2, 3, HTC One (M8), Google Nexus, External Batteries and more (White) - I've just bought one of these, and it can provide up to 8A!
