i think the newest smart phones pull 1 Amp so this kit may not be up to the job
#3
yer 1 amp would be needed for a new smart phone but this would charge the phone only slowly and would be useless when using something battery draining like gps

Not really - a USB port on a PC can support a max of 500 mA, some chargers just supply more so it charges faster. This will charge as fast as a USB port - i have one of these running in my car and it charges my phone (T-Mobile G1) fine but I use it for something else.

Any phone that charges by USB will work with this (although some phones need a "signal" to charge from USB, which I get around using a hub).

That would be outside of the USB spec and would blow just about every computer USB port out there if it tried to pull 1A thru it 500mA is the max an actual USB port can provide, of course a mains charger could provide more thru the usb socket on the phone so it would charge in half the time but theres no way a phone can pull 1A thru a computer USB port.

I got a twin cigarette adaptor with 2 USB sockets from ebay for 70p after I used a paypal voucher (for £1.20)

Correct, regardless of what others have said, including that no usb port can provide more than 500mA (which is nonsense).

Heat added.

These would be ideal for Leeds/Reading festival goers, where lockers contain cigarette lighter sockets for mobile phone chargers - i.e. one of these. You need a locker permit though.

^^ Just a heads up
#11
poundland do double ones. we have them to charge our phones,
#12
Rich 44 - My ext. USB HDD cable/caddy has 2 USB plugs on 1 end and 1 USB to plug into the HDD on the other end. Therefore a HDD that needs more than 500mA can feed from 2 x USB's at the same time, thus delivering 1A.

My HTC Desire knows if it is connected to a standard USB port or its mains charger, and pulls 500 or 1000mA.

Typically, 'proper' USB host found or no input on the data pins means only draw 500mA.
If the two data pins are bridged or both tied to ground (can't remember which) then it tries for 1000mA.

iirc iPhones refuse to charge at all if they don't detect the second, even if only drawing 500mA.

A charger delivering >=1A would be much more useful for charging other things too, PSPs for instance, mine will only charge when supplied with 500mA, and that takes 5-6 hours to get to 100%.

DX have a 1A unit for $2.58 (~£1.67).

100pence at £land. This deal is 50% more, voting cold!
#16
The iPad will not charge from a standard USB port, you have to use the plug in USB charger. That's because it draws more the 500ma!
#17
heat added, I'm not near a poundland (shock horror!) and didnt want anything too bulky.

"DX have a 1A unit for $2.58 (~£1.67)."

Do you have a link for this charger - I have a desire also and find the gps uses the battery quicker than the thing can get charged. Also is there an app that tells you how much the device is pulling in or charger is sending out?
#21
why do both the charger and description have to be filled with Apple products? will nobody buy it unless they find out it works with a stupid apple product?
#22
These are also £1 in Poundworld stores.
