Micro USB Charger 2A (hudl) £3.75 @ Tesco Direct

Found 21st Oct 2014
Thought this was a good price for a 2 Amp charger.

Better than taking a chance on a (possibly unsafe) one from ebay.

Obviously not just for hudl products, suitable for all Micro USB devices.

Free Click & Collect

(Includes 1M micro-USB to USB cable)

I've ordered one of these for a Raspberry Pi B+ that will be arriving shortly. I'm hopeful that it will be able to power the Pi and an external USB HD.

I've used this on my iPhone & it works fine

I'd prefer the Blackberry Playbook charger from Amazon for £3.24

Longer cable and comes with international adapters.

You can change the cable on this one as the charger just has a USB socket. I prefer that as it allows different lengths or plugs.

Looks like a good deal too

Although is the cable hard wired into the plug?
If ao i guess ita a little less versatile depending on what you want it for

It's hard wired, but much faster than any USB port type ones I've ever used.

Ordered for collection thanks heat added

That combination didnt work with my HD. But neither has a few other PSU I tried so far so I think its more an issue with the B+ design.

Need a new charger for my s5. how long is the cable?

Thanks

Excellent- can never have enough of these as they have migration tendencies, usually to a child's bedroom. My daughter had 4 of them in her room at the weekend, all plugged in to an extension lead with nothing connected.

Great deal, needed a new one after the rabbit chewed through my mobile cable so have bought 1 + another as a spare!

My son's room exactly the same, though he usually leaves the only lead that you need to wiggle about to charge anything downstairs for me and hubby to use.Lol

wouldn't bank on it!

Wouldn't the blackberry one be cheaper and better?

The car charger version comes with both this plug and in car charger - and double up cashcard points if you spend over £10!

Does anyone know will this work on a kindle fire hd?

That's a good choice for the Raspberry Pi, thanks for the tip I've ordered a couple.

Yes the Blackberry one is superb.
We have 4 in our house and one that stays in my suircase for travelling.
The blackberry charger is hard wired and you do get the full 2amp charging on your device as long as your device requires it, you can install an app showing the charging current.
These usb type chargers can not give a full 2amp charge because the usb lead that plugs into it will not allow that kind of power through it unless it is modified to be charge only and not charge and data exchange as 99.9% are.
Any Playbook owner who tried another charger will confirm this.

You will be very lucky if the Tesco Hudl charger works on your pi.
As previously mentioned the Blackberry charger is a better option.

:-( pd £5 a couple of weeks ago I hate missing a bargain

Ordered and heat added, thanks!
I just needed a cheap 2A USB plug and the click and collect is handy, so this is fine for me.
Curious though that on the Amazon site for the Blackberry charger, it does say in the bullet points just below the price that it's 1.8A?

Well I've been using my charger from my asus memo pad hd7 for the past 4 months? (1.35A) so I'm sure it will be fine, plus it had a usb stick and usb wifi adapter plugged into it.

I was looking at the blackberry one before I bought this one, I'm quite happy to spend the extra 51p*, thanks.
Edited by: "MitchellT" 21st Oct 2014

...erm the BlackBerry charger doesn't have the flexibility of the USB socket as on the Hudl charger.
I guess the BlackBerry charger has the advantage when it comes to travelling - hate the 3 prong plug when travelling, perhaps more to lose though - with the Hudl if you lose the cable (or external plug adapter) you can buy replacements much more easily than a clip in plug! Oh and Club card points to!
Heat added OP - thanks for sharing!

Been through *so* many chargers in my life, but the Blackberry ones are the best - even if they're slightly less versatile with the cable being fixed.

Glad some people are making use of the deal!

Didn't bother myself, got a few chargers kicking around already

2 purchased, thanks

Great price, was after one for my S5. Just ordered, thanks OP

Much prefer the charging efficiency of the blackberry one or an apple charger to other micro USB options. Excellent quality, blackberry charger is the only cheap charger I'd buy as a lot of the cheap ones 'whine' whether they're charging or not and waste elecy. Still an excellent deal if you really need to charge different devices.
