Very impressive car port USB charger By PPS076 on September 29, 2014 Color Name: Black Disclaimer: This product was sent to me by the Manufacturer / Supplier Omaker for an honest and unbiased review.
What is it and what does it do?: This product is a USB 3 Port Car Charger that is suitable for charging a wide range of small to medium sized devices that support USB charging.
Contents: – Omaker 5.1V USB 3 Port Car Charger
Compatible With (Examples): – iPhone 4s, 5, 5c, 5s – iPods – iPads – Samsung Galaxy S2,S3,S4 – Samsung Note 2, 3, 4
Specification: – Size = 35 X 24 X 60mm – Input = DC 12-18v – Output = 5v, 5.1A
Quality: The product is made of very high quality material that is fit for purpose. It’s well built, elegant and stylish. The thinner section that fits into your car cigarette charger port is made of gloss black plastic whilst the wider port area is made of a material that resembles copper and enhances its overall look significantly.
Design: With 3 different ports to choose from (1.0A, 2.0A and 2.1A), there is ample room for all the devices that you have in the car. The distance between each port is adequate for most devices. It’s relatively small size (about the size of your thumb in length and width) enables it to be placed directly into your car USB connection port without impeding on your driving abilities.
Performance: After I connected the product to the car charging port a blue LED light appeared on the 2.1V port which indicated that the product was active and was waiting for the first device.
After I tested a number of different devices that we have in our home on the product in a number of different combinations (iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, Galaxy S2, Galaxy S3, iPad Mini, iPad2 and Galaxy Note 3) I found that charging was initiated as quickly as it does when plugged directly into the mains. With the car engine and CD player running, the devices charged no quicker than normal speed without any issues. When I stopped directly outside my house in order to connect via WiFi, I used the devices for a number of tasks such as playing 3 youtube videos at the same time and it did not affect the charging process.
After charging all the devices for over 1 hour, there was very little overheating, about the same as you get when you charge devices via the mains.
Note: If you are planning to use this product to charge iPhones and iPads, you can charge iPhones in any of the 3 ports however an iPad can only be charged using the 2.1V port.
If you have any issues with the product within the first 3 months the manufacturer offers a free replacement or money back option which is a bonus. Although there were no contact details supplied with the product, communication would be done via an approved channel (Amazons contact system).
Safety: All charging stops automatically after each device has been fully charged and the product is made of a special fire proof material. The product is certified by the RoHS, CE & FCC and has an unique built in protection system that prevents overcharging, over-voltage, short circuiting, over-current and overheating. Not only do these unique features protect the product and your car from potential damage but it also protects your devices and data.
Summary: The product performed all tasks to the required standard and I did not experience any issues with the product during testing.
Verdict: Very impressive car port USB charger
