JOTO Wheel Series Dual-Port USB Car Charger Review:
A functional, unique, affordable portable USB charger.
I just got my hands on a wonderful USB car charger. You might think that in this day and age all car chargers are created equal, but this unit seems to disprove that idea. The JOTO Wheel Series Dual-Port USB Car Charger first struck me with its unique styling. Designed to look like and feel a car tire, the rubberized feel gives it a uniquely easy-to-grip quality. This makes insertion and removal from your car’s lighter or power port a cinch. The “tire” end with the USB ports is not too large or bulky and even has simulated tire treads. It will probably make your friends jealous when they ask to bum a charge port on the way to the bar.
Functionally, it is a perfect travel companion. It had no difficult charging my phone and my tablet at the same time without overheating or refusing to let either device charge. The positive pin at the end has a strong spring and a lengthier contact than some which ensures it makes a great connection with your power port.
It features two 2.4 amp output USB charging connectors and is compatible with most modern smartphones including Apple, Samsung, HTC and LG. The smart IC Intelligent High Speed charging detects your device’s needs to deliver the fastest possible charge. It will also automatically stop charging when your device’s battery is full. There is a built-in LED power indicator light that helps you to visualize your connection status, but isn’t so bright that it distracts you while driving.
In summary, the JOTO Wheel Series Dual-Port USB Car Charger is a great buy and I would recommend it to anyone looking to purchase a portable USB charger for your vehicle. It retails for approximately $11.
