I purchased this item with high hopes - multiple ports, high speed/intelligent charging, sleek, surge protection and a couple of other features. We used it twice to charge 3 iPhones and an iPad with only two devices plugged in at the same time. It worked as expected during the first two charges during the first days that we had it. However, on the third day, when we plugged an iPhone into the rapid charge port the phone was not recognized. We tried other devices and other charging cables but all with the same result - no power to charge the connected device. It's unfortunate because this could have been a great central charging station for our many devices. But we ended up returning it so that won't be possible now.
