Just curious.
Why are the ports given specific uses, ie ipad iphone android.
What happens if you try to charge an iphone in the android port?

Nah, they're labelled because different devices have a different maximum draw. An iPad charges quickest when it can draw 2.1A, whereas a Samsung Galaxy S3 draws only 1A max. It's just to help you make the most efficient use of the ports.

Good price and heat added. Still prefer this though http://www.amazon.co.uk/Family-Sized-Desktop-Charger-Technology-External-White/dp/B00EJA28ES/ref=sr_1_6?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1404468898&sr=1-6&keywords=anker+charger

It's 40w (not 25w) and it'll adapt to the appliance to charge at the correct amps. It has been as low as £16.99 I think. I have two and they're excellent.

This one would be good if you want to spend under a tenner.

Yeah, I agree, the Anker one is the big daddy of USB charging (intelligent thing is cool, too) but for half the price at the moment this one is still way more than enough for my needs - going to be well handy on holiday!

I have one of these and it makes a slight fizzing noise when powered on - this appears to be a common finding according to the reviews

All USB chargers I own do the same - including Apple and Samsung official ones. Generally the 'squeaking' is louder if the charger is powered on but nothing is drawing from it. Not so loud under load.

Very good price heat added

It's the result of the coils vibrating due to ripple current (usually poor capacitors).

Annoying, but ultimately nothing to worry about.

This is hot, and I will be grabbing one I think.

i bought the anker 40w one and its fantastic, had all the lads phones sorted in ibiza and all operating at 100% charge capacity!
#11
Yep, I got the Anker in Black. Just plug device in and it works out the correct charge rate.

I was tempted but there's no way I'd cope with any fizzing or buzzing. I'd throw it out the window, it's 2014 so no need for poor electronics.

It bothers me too - hence why I keep my chargers in a drawer.

It's not poor electronics, it's just the nature of the design of a transformer.

Plus, most adults can't hear these frequencies, it tends to affect younger people (i.e under 25)

Have one of these
Use all 5 slots at once (Teenage Son & Daughter)!!
Must say it seems to charge the devices quicker than a single plug in wall socket type charger
Taking this on holiday to Spain (Saves on the amount of plugs (If not wires)

my anker one is silent, so i wouldnt say its the design of a transformer.

Well I've got super duper magic hearing ears and my Anker 40w is silent, high quality and well worth the extra cost over one with ports for specific devices - one of which I also own and it did my head in swapping cables about. We have quite a few devices.

Well, I can't hear most electronic things, but younger relatives can. They complain about the TV, the Sky box, my laptop, and any plug-in transformer. I can only hear certain things, like Powerline adapters (very loud) and USB chargers (just a distant-sounding squeal).

To state objectively that a charger is 'silent' is physically impossible - it depends on the environment, the load on the charger, and, most importantly, your hearing. Even if you can't hear it right now, it's making plenty of noise in the kHz ranges.

For a quick test, grab a portable radio and sweep through the AM frequencies while holding it near the charger. Noisy as hell!

Took a punt on one of these at this price, I have another similar unit but found it didn't even have enough juice to charge my ipad and iPhone at the same time!

The product supplies a maximum current of 5A. Even an iPad draws a max of 2.1 amps so provided you had the products in the right ports then you had a faulty unit!

Sorry ... can't let that go. The noise being described here is fluctuations and modulation of the air - which you detect via your ears. It is possible for a charger to be free of that kind of noise as long as its not physically vibrating in any way, e.g. encased in epoxy resin. The electrical noise you describe is a different thing entirely and I don't think that's what is being discussed.

If this charger fell in the forest would it make a sound?

Depends if anyone was around with "super duper magic hearing ears".

You can hear something with a radio, and if you have youthful ears or a faulty unit you can hear something all the time. I was just trying to illustrate the point that there's noise going on - it doesn't operate silently. I doubt anyone's going to be using the charger in lab conditions!

Appreciate the information though (not being sarcastic)

would this draw power even if there are no loads connected to it?

It's going to be using something, but something very tiny. The general rule of thumb for a USB charger is: if it’s not warm to the touch with nothing plugged into it, it’s using less than a penny a year.

If it was drawing anything, the energy would have to be converted to heat or sound - so you would know!

Tiny leak is fine but one of reviewer wrote this, kind of putting me off, great piece of kit otherwise:

his charger has no problems charging single or multiple devices from the 5 mixed high and low-power output slots.

I was surprised to find it draws 10watts of power when no devices are being charged. This seems to me to be a bit wasteful, so next time I'd buy the anker 40watt charger on here that does the same job but doesn't burn power when no devices are connected

That sounds like a fault. There's no way it should be 'leaking' about 2A of power. Mine stays cool and (to my ears) quiet when there's nothing drawing from it, indicating that its consumption is minimal.

If it 'draws' 10W of power in a 240V environment, 10W does not equal 2A . . . 10W still sounds high though.

Sorry - I was thinking 5V as that's the output voltage of the secondary coil, but you're right.

I have one these from the last price drop and it's very practical. Tempted to get another one.

My hearing is bionic and I can't hear any fizzing or buzzing. But if I put my ear right on it then yes there is a faint buzz which is normal, as has been said.
