This Micro USB Home Charger, which is both compact and lightweight, is ideal as a secondary source to charge your mobile phones and tablets. You can keep it in your office as well as travelling with you. This charger is equipped with a fixed cable with Micro USB plug, which allows you to use it instantly after plugging the charger into the wall. A separate USB cable is not required.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought 2 of these, as I figured 2 amp chargers would be more efficient for charging my micro-USB devices. They charge quickly enough, but are not at all durable. On one of them the micro USB connector stopped working quite soon, and will only work if you put a small weight on it. The other still works but the wire at the mains plug end is coming apart and you can see the inner cables - I can't imagine it will last very long. I'm guessing I've had these for about 6 months now. Other chargers I have had supplied with my mobiles (eg HTC, Samsung etc) have always outlived the phones - I can't see why Maplin can't supply a better-quality item which is designed to last.

Would this unit work with a home security system with a 5v micro connector, as it would be connected permanently, or is it likely to overheat.

Asked by: jointer
This will work fine for powering micro usb items that use less that 2.1 amps.
