    Does it come with a power cable?
    New User U on Dec 3, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: This comes with an external power supply that has a five foot cable.
    What is the input power specifications? Can this be used outside the US with 220V / 230V AC?
    andrew c on Dec 28, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: From the specifications stamped on the unit itself, it list the following. "Input: 100-240v-50/60Hz 1.1A
    Happy with this device as I don't have to have several chargers plugged into a power strip.
    Does the support fast charging?
    Dana Z on May 6, 2017
    It does. There are 2 smart charge ports for 2.1A charging and they charge Apple products such as iPads quickly. The ports also charge other lower voltage super fast.
    how long is the power cable?
    Darcy K on Apr 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: 2 prong 6 ft detachable US AC cord.
    Does this have a power cord, or does it plug directly into a wall outlet?
    A shopper on Apr 20, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: There is a power cord about 5 feet long. It has a Type A Connector on the plug end (standard US 2-prong), and I don't know the name of what's on the socket end, but I think of it as typical for a laptop power brick -- smaller, figure-eight shaped.
    Does this device cut off when phones are charged?
    A shopper on Jun 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No, it's the drama as plugging a phone directly into the wall. An always-on electrical connection.
    Is this item listed by UL, CE, ETL or any other product safety lab?
    David F on Mar 27, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Mine has an ETL listed mark, and a Canadian "CANICES-3(B)/NMB-3(B)" mark. ETL is US NRTL like UL, and the Canadian mark is a RF-interference rating.
    Why is this labeled as a smart charger? Exactly what type of smart technology does it have?
    Jeremy M on Sep 30, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I would say that nothing is smart other than it saves you from having 5 seperate wall warts plugged in. Works well for multiple devices that need 5v power or charge. I would not recommend for devices that support Qualcomm fast charging. Those switch to 9vDC and charge way faster this this can at 5vDC.
    Do all the ports supply an equal charge or are they rated at different amperages?
    Andrew W on Dec 11, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, all ports are capable of outputting 2.4A/12w per port. I hope this helps, thank you!

    A little overlooked, un-noted feature
    So far, it works as advertised. All ports are 2.4A/12W and charge and iPhone and iPad at the same time.

    However, one think that is not so obvious, which I think is great - there are no LED indicator lights on the unit. With the over use of super bright LED power and status indicator lights, it is a nice not-to-have. So, it can be used in the bedroom without interrupting sleep or lighting up the room.

    Works well
    I got one of these for a trip. I didn't want to take a bunch of different chargers for different devices. This was small and had good power output. Didn't seem to heat up much, charged a phone, tablet and battery pack at the same time with no trouble. Price was decent for what it was.

    PROS: Small, lightweight, high power output

    CONS: None. Worked well.

    Works as described
    So far so good. A very convenient device to have in an office.

    PROS: Doesn't take up much desk space. Stays plugged in without being switched or unplugged. Charges multiple devices simultaneously and quickly.

    CONS: None so far. If you buy one of these, get short (1 foot or less) cables to plug in your devices. You'll want to keep the unit on your desk or table top where you can conveniently plug and unplug your gadgets and phones.

    yup :)
    I had something similar before from ebay. Saw this and though it would be worth a try. Very happy with my choice to get 3 of them. One in the living room to charge my WII controllers, one in my bedroom for phoned an tablets and one at the office.

    PROS: it charges things

    CONS: fast charging port would be nice and give me a reason to buy more USB cables so i can colour code.

    works as advertised
    wife and I hook up phones, tablets, etc. to this guy. works as described. charges many items via one recepticle. only a week or so into having it, hope it lasts!

    PROS: works

    CONS: none yet, hope not to have any over long haul
    March 9, 2016
    Keeps us going
    Used repeatedly to charge up several iPads and iPhones.

    Great charger
    Works very well for charging multiple devices quickly. I gave it 4 stars because one of the five ports were dead on arrival. Fortunately I am rarely needing to charge more than 4 devices at the same time so I've been able to work around it.

    What a great way to charge all devices at once
    I love this charger. We can charge all our iphones and ipads at the same time. I love to integrage with the Monoprice apple charger cords.

    I've ordered two of these units and one was DOA but Monoprice promptly replaced it for me

    PROS: Fast charging, multiple ports

    CONS: Only available in Black, come one! White/stainless finish would go great with all the Apple products
    September 29, 2016
    Very convenient
    Would highly recommend this for desk/countertop use for multiple devices. The five port charger is extremely useful for any device with a USB charger. I use this for charging multiple Samsung Galaxy phones, Kindles and portable power banks. The spacing of the ports is wide enough to accommodate OEM and third party USB cords and the included power cord is long enough to reach behind a desk or table so as not to be in the way. Would buy again without hesitation as I have no complaints about the item.

    Perfect charger for me
    Needed to add charging ports to an equipment cart and the small size and charging capacity was exactly what I was looking for. Works great.
