Lol it's a standard USB port

Think it must come with the cable all other listing online show it with the cable

LOL WRONG!!!!

The reason why normal chargers don't work with the iphone is because the iphone needs reference voltages on the two data lines to begin with charging.

The ip5 doesnt NEED 2A does it? Or does it?

I know for my old Samsung S4 it needed the 2A charger to charge in the car. The standard 1A charger wasnt enough.

I'm not too sure about that but my tomtom in car charger works with a 4s and 5 just charges quite slowly.

I think 2a charges it at full speed as normal In car chargers seem to charge quite slow, plus it's handy if I ever need to charge my ipad in car.

Thanks for the heads up, ordered 3.

Heat added.

Does it work for note 2?

Yes it will, just plug your usb cable in. I use one in the car, just ordered a spare. Thanks OP.

Please will it work with Samsung S3?

There's a lot of armchair engineers in this thread so let's clear this up:

There's a 99.9999% chance that your phone will charge just fine with this providing there's a USB port on one end of the cable. USB is a standard after all.

However, some chargers can charge their respective devices faster. This is because they fiddle with the data lines to let the phone know there's more power to draw. The phones will charge just fine on other chargers, and other phones will work just fine on those chargers. But, some phones will consume too much power and will drain the battery faster than it can be charged. Also, some older Samsung devices will not say they're charging, even though they are trickle charge (e.g. First gen Galaxy Tab).


So in answer to the question "will it charge X device", yes, but in some cases not as fast as an official charger.

Thanks, heat added and 3 ordered.

Standard USB is 500mA
Android chargers typically have the middle two pins shorted together to signal to the device that it's ok to draw more than this.
Apple chargers have 2.0v on one of the middle pins and 2.3v on the other. So this may charge an iPhone slowly, or it'll have a pissy fit and refuse to charge at all from a non-official charger (wouldn't surprise me for Apple)

But go ahead and waste your money.

Whoops my mistake then looks like I'll have to return then.

Just got back from Tesco where I picked up a MiTEC 2A charger thinking it was a good buy at £6....that will be going back when I collect a couple of these Samsung ones from store. Last official Samsung one I bought was for my Note, but only 1A, so not really any good to charge and use (sat nav etc), 2A should do the business.

Thanks OP

Does anyone know where i can find a decent 2 port usb car charger that is 2amp , along with a seperate usb charging cable that isnt one of the spiral twisted ones? need a charging cable that is around 1m long as the car cig lighter is miles away from the windscreen!

This is a great price for a 2A car charger. I would have bought a few but already have the Anker dual charger.

Nice find OP!

Jimbob2010 - Maybe you could use it for other devices or try with your own cable and return if it doesnt work... I would have thought the 'shorted' bit would be in the cable itself and not the charger. I'm no expert its jyst MHO. For a few pounds its worth a shot?

Komi - I doubt it comes with a usb cable.

Scosche Revolt c2. Dual 2 amp and v small. Pricey and got cold voted when I posted it on here but would do what you're after.

Cheers Op. Just ordered for charging tab while in the car. Thanks
