Rated 5 out of 5 by from My pet bug bear with USB chargers is that often they have multiple LEDs, lighting up the room at night. This one DOESN'T. So far it's functioned exactly as required, charging my iPad and Galaxy s3 simultaneously, with very little heat generated.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not work as described on the box Packaging states it is 3.1A (amp) via 1 socket or 2.1A + 1.0A. It's not true it's a 2.1A + 1.0A. You can not obtain 3.1A from one socket from this unit

Can I use an inverter to power this device. Inverter has over kW of power, but no other details are available so it may not be sine wave output

Hi I bought this power supply to charge a hand-held Sega console. Could you please recommend whether to use the 2.1A or 1A socket to charge the console (or would both be perfectly suitable?), and how do I tell which socket is which? Thank you!

Hi, Would this plug be suitable as a power supply for my 2W LED light? It's a USB cable, DC 5V. Thanks 

Asked by: AngelaP
As long as the connection is USB and the power requirements are 5V at no more than 2.1A this should be fine.

Hi, we run a business from home and take about one card transactions per day. Maplins sold me the 3.1A twin usb power charger. I was told I should use the 2.1A slot for the Izettle card reader and 1A for our iPad. Is this correct? Thanks

Asked by: RoseNV
This would be the other way round. The iPad would use the 2.1A slot. And the Izettle would use the 1A slot.

I bought one in-store and the packaging says "The power is distributed as 3.1A from one socket or 2.1A and 1.0A". Please would you confirm 3.1A from one? When got home I found the unit itself says 2.1A on one socket and 1.0A on the other. Confusing.

Asked by: TomH
From checking it seems the ports are handed, meaning the left port is the 2.1 and the right is the 1 amp, if your nokia says slow charger, try using the other port.

Hi. Just bought this today. Can either the 2.1A or the 1A socket be used for charging any devices. Is it simply that the 2.1A will charge faster? (I'm not very knowledgeable on electrical matters).

Asked by: May67
Yes that's correct but some devices will not charge off a 1A port.
