Bought this to charge my Samsung S4 in the car at the full charge rate as opposed to a trickle charge. (The phone will tell you it can charge faster if on a trickle charger) The OEM wall charger can charge at a rate of 1900mA. This charger in my car will charge my S4 at a rate of 1200mA. Not quite as fast, but for the online price of nine dollars and eighty eight cents, I'm not complaining. The local price was about thirteen dollars. Buy it with site to store and go pick it up.
I have not plugged in two devices yet, but I would imaging this would drop the charge rate approximately in half. In a pinch this is acceptable for me. Your mileage may vary. :)
The slim extremely low, round profile looks very sharp in the power outlet of my illuminated 03' Celica GTS. Almost like OEM. This is a plus, as it does not interfere or protude into the shifter at all in my small car.
The one thing I don't like is the lack of any illumination. It would be nice if there was a small LED to indicate power. If I could figure out how to open the housing without breaking it, I would add a small LED circuit to accomplish this. But it's not a deal breaker, given the price and performance.
This review is based on owning this device for 3-6 weeks with usage every few days. Not sure if walmart will allow me to update this, so bear this in mind.
