Basic travel charger for phone and tablet
The review sample I received is perfect for travelers who want a compact charging solution. Most of us now own a tablet and smart phone and this was designed for the business crowd who carries the minimum. Tourists would be better suited with the brands big sibling, Yubi Power Foldable Universal Quad-Port USB Travel & Wall Charging Station, that will also accommodate cameras and other devices.
This is not an MFi (Made for iPhone/iPad) certified charger, but it was clearly designed for those devices. It will work with any device that requires 5 volt DC at 1 Amp input on the aux port, and the 2.1 Amp port will with with iPads and most tablets (I tested that port with both an iPad and a Samsung Tab 3 10.1). This charger will simultaneously charge both a 1 and 2.1 Amp device at the full combined rate of 3.1 Amps, so it's more than adequate for overnight charging in a hotel room, as well as an office charger.
I love the smaller form factor which is about 1 7/8 x 1 7/8 x 1.25 inches. You can literally carry it in your trouser pocket or purse. The prongs are polarity independent, meaning you can plug them in right side up or upside down, which is another convenience. They positively lock open, unlike other ones that I have used in the past that would fold back down if you missed the socket while fumbling in the dark.
Overall this is basic, but functional. I use a different wall charger at home (the other model the company makes) because I have many more devices. For travel, though, this one is perfect.
Loved it in Greek Islands and Turkish cities.
It look as if It's too large to travel with, nonetheless this works perfect anywhere, at hotel, apartment, and airports!
Works Great in Italy
Do not hesitate to buy this adapter for Italy. It has worked great in every place we have stayed. Thumbs Up!
nice small charger
Small and lightweight (61g, lightest of my dual USB chargers with 3.1-4.8A output), good for travel, and should be able to charge a tablet and a phone at the same time.
Added 63% to ipad mini in 2 hours and 8 minutes (from 36% to 99%), used 2.1A rated port for that.
Was not able to charge nook HD+ - but I found only one charger capable of doing it, so I guess this is not a big deal.
Worked nicely for Verizon ellipsis tablet (Android, 7”) – another tablet not compatible to every charger out there. Yubi needed 15 minutes to charge the ellipsis from 95% to 100% (added 5%).
I would have preferred to have 2.1A output on both ports, and would rate this charger because of that at 4.5 stars.
Very Good use of productive space in cramped quarters
Wonderful on cruise ships where outlets are precious.
Time to buy this for US outlets!
This was very reliable while we were traveling in Europe. I highly recommend spending the extra money for this one.
Small and awesome
This worked perfectly! It fit into outlets in the UK just fine.
Perfect for what I needed while in the U
Perfect for what I needed while in the U.K. So easy and allowed me to charge my phone and tablet while leaving the other "regular" adaptors to charge my camera overnight. Worth the price.
