      It charges. There really isn't a lot to say about a USB Charger. They are designed to convert a standard US electrical outlet 120 volts AC down to a standard USB 5 volts DC that will pretty much charge any device that uses USB cable charging. According to the website, this device can put out as much as 12 watts of power at 2.4 amps, (The math works, Watts is a Power unit and is equal to Voltage x Amps. So 5 Volts x 2.4 Amps = 12 Watts. So what does this mean, you may ask? Well a typical device hooked to a computer USB may only draw about 500 milliamps or .5 amps. This Insignia USB charger can more than handle the average device and can actually handle charging the bigger phones and tablets that can be rapid charged yet still safe for the smaller phones. This should be a usable substitute to charge one of the big Samsung Galaxy 5 or 6 phones or Galaxy tablets and other devices like an iPhone 4 or Galaxy 3 or 4. But I urge you to read the user manual of your device for specs and precautions. Insignia is the Best Buy brand, I would think Best Buy would do the research to make sure the device was well manufactured and safe before they would put their name and reputation on it. I would not hesitate in using this to charge any major brand phone or camera or device. A word of caution: I might be hesitant to use this charger or ANY charger to charge a cheap knock-off Chinese market e-cigarette item that could be using poorly manufactured Lithium Ion Batteries. It is not the charger that is the problem, but the cheap batteries, a lithium ION battery must be precisely charged to voltage and current to be safely charged. A poorly manufactured Lithium ION may not truly have the design physics to be the same specs. A cheap knock off Lithium ION battery that is not made to correct specs can be dangerous and cheaply manufactured electronics like e-cigarettes may not have voltage safety circuitry in them to insure the battery is not over charged or charged at wrong voltage or current. You have heard reports of batteries exploding. It is the batteries that are at fault, usually not the charger to blame, that a faulty or broken charger could cause a problem. I in most cases it is the bad batteries. This Insignia USB Charger is a high capacity capable USB charger, safe for major brand phones and tablets using properly designed and manufactured lithium ion batteries. Very safe for this application. The USB cable is swap-able, so they base will work with any USB cable plugged into it, USB, USB mini, old iPhone or new iPhone style cables. I am an engineer, I studied electronics. I have no hesitation in using this Insignia charger. It is just a generic Best Buy Brand. Should be safe for most applications of major brand products. Everything said here is only my opinion. Do your own research before buying and using. Apologies if I went into to deep of detail.

      It's a good charger and does what it's supposed to do. I use it for different items including, Mophie Juice Pack, and by changing cables I also charge my iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini, GoPro Hero3+. Visually it looks nice with a blue LED that lights up in the "G" of the name but the face of it does scratch easily. Looks is not really important to me but thought I'd mention it. The USB cable locks into the charger and releases by pinching the sides of the cable tip. The cable is just under 3' 1/2". The charger itself is a little larger than the type that come with an iPhone and if plugged in next to another outlet on an extension cord it may block it (see image), on the wall it should be fine. Other than the face of the charger scratching and being a little on the large side it's a really good charger and worth having.

      Seeking Charger Replacement for Samsung Tablets

      I purchased this charger as a replacement for my Samsung tablet. Unfortunately, I left my initial charger in the hotel suit in New Orleans while on vacation. I had purchased a few other chargers that were not charging my tablet; therefore, I enlisted the help of a Best Buy associate. He assured me this charger would not only charge my Samsung tablet but would also do it quicker. This was not the case. The charger did not work. The associate assured me it would be a suitable replacement for Samsung devices and again he was incorrect. The charger was great for charging other accessories like Bluetooth items, some cell phones and much smaller tablets but not my Samsung device. If you are seeking a replacement for a Samsung device, the best Avenue is to order one from the Samsung site if you can not find the actual Samsung brand in the store.

      Just what I needed!

      I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 Active and it stoped taking a charge.. I was so worried that it was DEAD dead and hoped for an easy fix.. before it stopped working the battery steadily stopped holding a charge (I've had the phone for about a year) but when it went kaput I would go to plug it in and it would just beep like it wanted to take a charge but wouldn't. well I walked in and what do ya know... there was a Samsung counter with a very friendly helpful associate. Told me how the phones were needing a higher charge than initially thought so my original charger just wasn't strong enough for it. And I haven't had a single problem since. Its durable, it charges my phone at a pretty decent rate, and the battery holds charge for a long time, just like when it was new. Thanks best buy for yet again great customer service!!

      Excellent compact AC/USB cellphone recharger

      I have a cellphone (who doesn't) and an emergency back-up auxilliary "battery" (also bought at Best Buy) but both require feeding with electricity (as you doubtless know -- I've named my cellphone Audrey after the "FEED ME!" plant in Little Shop of Horrors). I have recharger plugs in three rooms of my house and one in my car, and was carrying one in my purse. But the one in my purse was only a mini-port, and the AC prongs stuck out and tore up the lining. I looked all round, and finally found exactly what I needed at Best Buy -- a compact AC plug with FOLD-DOWN prongs that can recharge the phone and/or any other USB item (including the backup). And the miniport plug to the cellphone fits quite securely (not all of them do). I am quite pleased.

      Fast charger, but....

      This charger, first of all, was the only one in the store that fit the requirements I needed. I had no options. I have a Galaxy S5 and this is the only micro USB wall charger they had. It was very good at first, it charges quickly, but then the metal end piece got bent. I don't know how, I wasn't doing anything weird with it, just plugging it into my phone like usual. I wasn't carrying it around, or wiggling the end bit. Completely understandable if I'd had it for a while, or if I was stress on it. I've had it for a month though, and it was nothing unusual. Now it charges very very inconsistently. It was more than $20! I definitely didn't get my money's worth. Disappointed.

      My main reason for the purchase was to help eliminate static shock in the winter time. although we have had a milder winter this year so far it has accomplished that. I find that since the beginning it has also helped me to me to breath easier. I have owned this unit for one month now and it has has worked as advertised. The refill bottle is square so you do not have to hold onto it as you fill it. All of the electronic displays work as they should. We do keep our thermostat set at 64 - 65 degrees and it does seem to make the house colder, but a heated throw blanket takes care of that. Over all I am completely happy with the unit and only wish that I had purchased one a long time ago.

      My son borrowed my Kindle Fire and charger that came with it. Then, he lost the charger. We have bought replacement chargers in the past, for other Kindles and haven’t had the best results. Needless to say, I wasn’t very excited about having to buy another one. This charger, however, has worked great! I followed the advise of someone who worked at Best Buy and decided on purchasing this one. I’m glad I did! It charges without any problems, is sturdy, and stays plugged into the Kindle without falling out.
