my mistake its aldi now edited
Ridiculously cheap and ridiculously cheap on electrical items like this is never the greatest idea, the reviews are spectacular

I'll stick with something like the Tacima 947 for my gadgets and the Allocacoc powercube for some extra USB ports thank you very much
hmm, I wonder if these ones make buzzing noises...a bit like a trapped fly trying to escape

Of course its not going to be like the tacima947 @5.99 but this is a deals site not a best make site

And if its no use take it back under the 3 year warranty

Got one of those couple of months ago, works well with no buzzing.
I got some that look very similar from CPC and they were complete dogs**t. I used them for a while but they were SO slow at charging things even though they claimed to be 2.0A. I bought a USB ammeter for them and they were outputting 1.0A *at best* with a £9 cable. One of them developed a buzzing sound pretty quickly and in the end I sent back all of the 5 I bought.

Definitely worth a shot at this price but don't buy it unless you go to aldi regularly because you're probably going to be returning them if they are the same.

Why did you buy 5 you should always buy 1 then if you like it then buy more, that is your mistake because most people order multiple stuff more than they need then they return it, which gets sold again as refurbished or like new item

Well deal site yes but not rubbish product that could be a fire risk site
got a regular 8 way, i.e. no USB from CPC for £7 and it was great and they have all kinds of cheap cables and free delivery over £5 will def be using them again for random electronics

Something sold by Aldi is very unlikely to be a fire risk. I think you're grasping at straws. It probably charges slowly because it hasn't got "smart" outputs which convince connected devices to draw more current.

I went by the reviews of and it's price whilst you're going with your devotion to the Albrecht grocery store it would appear

And as far I know my Allocacoc cube don't have any smart outputs either but it is solid as hell and don't get smouldering hot when there's a couple of plugs and USB leads running of it.

Tip: when trying to sound superior, at least get basic spelling right.

I needed 5 and they were on special offer at £6 each delivered. Then when I returned them they were collected for free too.

I don't see how it's my fault that the item did not work as advertised. I don't buy one grain of rice from the supermarket and check if it's mouldy before buying more to cook my dinner, my time is worth more than that.

Reviews 'off' it, really?

Don't instead of 'doesn't' is grammatically wrong granted, well I do tend to write as I speak in forums, but spelling wise is don't wrong?

It's rather than 'its' once more grammatically wrong when used in terms of possession you're right but it also happens to be a very common predictive text based issue these days.

So your summary of my 'spelling errors' are actually all grammatical, including one that was right in the context it was said in that you got totally wrong.

Oh dear so you who no doubt did the full stretch education thing and thus considers herself super literate and socially superior ain't looking that sharp after all against someone who got expelled from two schools and went in to full time employment at 15 years old oh I just said ain't too!

Yep you're right I should have done, only just seen that myself now you've pointed it out but once again absolutely nothing to do with spelling but grammar.

Though one has to wonder how you were able to dig me out about 'it's' and 'don't' if you didn't read the rest of my comment?

I didn't read the rest of your reply to me.

I don't really care about your grammar or spelling. I was just explaining what pibpob probably meant.

Didn't need your life story as interesting as it might be.

Read it now, I have gone further than you in education yes. Not English though so I doubt it would make any difference to my grammar or spelling.

Bist du dep?

Are you pibpob's very own Sean Spicer?

You're the one who was happy to help but until he/she enlightens us as to what was meant by basic spelling being short it will remain a mystery as much as the Loch Ness Monster and the alleged faking of the moon landing.

Then again seeing we've already established it was all about grammar of the words I wrote rather than the spelling of them we might never know now eh

I don't speak that language.

I was helping you not him/her, you were the one who asked the question, I just answered with what I thought they were probably referring to. We may never know but at least you can work on your grammar for the future if you ever want to get back into education.

Just killing time for my own amusement
I thought this was for extension leads... Nope it's for basic spelling. Lol
I've ordered a couple of these, there weren't any black ones available at the time though their system does reserve items in peoples basket for 30mins so there may be some avilable later.

Was going to post a cheap corsa as well but someone will vote cold because its not as good as a rolls royce

Still giving it the big'un in private message and then blocking are you, that is your thing isn't horsey?

And still obsessed about claiming the working class tag for people who subscribe to your beliefs it would appear.

I'm very glad I got your goat that much that two years on you're still trolling me

As with most USB plug combos the quoted 2.0 A is shared across USB sockets so 1.0 A would have been accurate for a product quoting 2.0 A unless otherwise stated that each USB socket is powered seperately.

This was giving 1.0A (maximum, most of the time it was 0.5A) with one USB device connected. Honestly I jumped through a lot of hoops because I wanted these to work but they really were shit. I could probably charge my phone faster with static electricity from rubbing it on my jumper.
Don't order these! I recieved my one and it has a slight buzzing sound which gets very annoying. Also the USB ports charge very slow.
