    Relatively affordable option for someone needing more outlets and a USB charger but I have one issue and one concern that stops me from recommending this device. ISSUE: USB ports are a limited to 1.1 amp reguardless of if both are used. Usually chargers will output full amps if only one USB is used. This has a stated output of 2.1 amps. I only own one USB V/A tester so I can't confirm total output other than it will not push over 1.1-1.2 Amps on either port. CONCERN: short warranty is not reassuring (90 days) since the primary reason most will buy this is the USB ports and they will be the first to fail. The build quality and weight makes it feel very cheap, again not reassuring. In the past I have had good luck with dynex products. Also, the 13 outlets are only nice if you need the plug position variety. I'dn't try to max out capacity unless you had small plugs and mounted this device down. VERDICT: Id say if your buying this over other devices and the USB ports are a primary concern (especially if you planon charging tablets) I'd say definitely pass on this. Id return if I didnt buy this primarily trying to use up RZ certificates. Take away the USB ports and you can better deal on a higher quality device, especially sale items.

    Fills a needed niche-but not as well as it should
