iClever Dual USB Wall Charger
I do not think that I am alone in having numerous USB charging devices: iPhone 6s Plus, IPad Air 2, Apple Watch Sport 42″, Bluetooth ear pieces, speakers, headphones, fitness trackers. Technology is awesome. However, with the technology comes the saga of keeping all of your devices charged and playing the wall charger plug “Tetris.” Luckily, modern homes tend to have regularly spaced outlets, allowing for more charging options. Alas, my nightstand seems like a battleground of USB cords, with numerous power bricks plugged into a surge protector. As my wife is not a fan of clutter, I look for ways to de-clutter my area.
iClever, a hisgadget brand, provided me with a few options to solve the clutter problem. The dual USB Wall charger comes in a small cardboard box with copper brown wording labeling the product. The packaging is bland, but details the product. The packaging seems well made and protective. Opening up the box, you will find the white dual USB charger, an instruction manual and a warranty card, detailing a 12 month warranty on the product. The user manual is well written, in easily understandable English. Removing the device from the plastic, you are introduced to the 24 W 4.8A smart charging hub.
The technology incorporates the latest smartID technology. This allows each port to identify the appropriate charging power for your device. This will allow you to charge two USB powered devices at their maximum/ideal charging rate. The product takes AC 100-240V input and outputs this at 5V 2.4A for each outlet. The devices measures at 2″ x 2″ x 1 1/8″ in size and weighs in at 3 oz, according to my scale (2.9oz in manual). The device is a standard white charging cube, with black lettering “iClever”on one of the sides. The other side is smooth glossy white. As a plus, the device has foldable prongs, which is convenient for portability. I, as a consumer, appreciate the ability for the prongs to be tucked into the structure. This prevents catching on bags/luggage and bending of the prongs. On the side opposite the foldable prongs are the 2 USB A output ports. ON the bottom is listed the information about the device and the specifications/approvals. I have always been a fan of the Apple color scheme, as there is something clean about glossy white products. iClever has clearly attained that feeling as well. The device plugs into standard American wall outlets easily. Plugging my iPhone 6S plus and my iPad Air 2 into the device, via USB to lightning cables, allowed each to charge at just about 1% per minute. This is about the maximum I was able to achieve with other charging options so far.
The benefit to a system like this is, there is no “right” port to use for a given device. I enjoy being able to plug whatever I need to be charged, into any available port. The device is a good size, has foldable prongs and does everything it claims to do. It has the FCC mark, the European standard Mark “CE” (allows to be sold in European Union), the house symbol means it is for indoor use only, the double square means it is double insulated, and the trashcan with an X through it means do not throw the device away. It has no UL code (American safety standard), which is not legal anyway. This is just a point of information. Overall this product does what it claims to do, and I have found no fault with it. It warms up with charging, but does not get overtly hot. It has charged every device I have tested it with (numerous) as fast if not faster than their provided cables/charges. I rate this device at 5/5.
