    It's a charger, that's all it has going for it

    I bought this in store without looking at any reviews online. I asked at the Samsung desk about a replacement brick (I wanted a second one) for my galaxy s6 and specified that I wanted it to do the rapid charge that the original charger does. They said there wasn't anything in that section and pointed me towards the wall of insignia products. I selected this product and asked at the cellular area if it would indeed rapid charge my phone (the box makes the claim that it charges all devices at their optimal rate) and they assured me it would (I should have known better since it happened to be an open box discount item already). I got it home and plugged in my phone and not only does it not rapid charge, if I'm using my phone at all it hardly charges at all and if I'm playing certain games I will actually continue to lose charge albeit at a slower rate. So I returned it today and didn't buy anything else, apparently best buy doesn't sell the original Samsung charger and hasn't bothered to make one that will do the job. The only reason I gave it two stars is because a similar one (appears to be the same charger in slightly different plastic housing) that I bought several years ago has held up very well so I would wager it is as durable as the old one.

    Wrong plug for my cell phone.

    I needed a replacement cord for my cell phone, the adapter recommended did me no good. Returned the product within 15 minutes once I realized it was an outlet plug and there was no connection to charge up the phone. The entire cord with the adapter is what I requested to charge my Samsung phone.

    The product implied it was rapid charging; however, I hooked my phone up and it took the entire night to charge. I used a different turbo charger and it went from dead to fully charged in 30 minutes. I am returning this item and will buy one like I used that actually was rapid.

    Went to bestbuy looking for a fast charger to replace my samsung note 4 supercharger. They gave me this and said it's a fast charger. Nope! Works like all other regular chargers. Customer service in introducing the product from an elite customer was misleading as well.

    While charging my Samsung Tablet it has a red X

    It doesn't charge my Samsung Tablet like the original charger did. There's a red X over the battery light like it's discharging the battery. When the Tablet dies you can't charge it and use it at the same time. It does eventually charge it though. It's better than nothing.

    Unstable voltage but looks great!

    Generally not a pad wall-wort, exceed .5a and it becomes unstable. This is not a deal breaker for most devices. It still maintains a steady enough supply to power my Raspberry Pi 2 platform without stalling it or crashing it. For the price its a good buy.

    Looks great, feels great but I'm surprised that the plug-in didn't come with a cord and charging us pretty slow for my Google pixel XL. For the price there are better options.

    Very slow. Worse than a trickle charger. I will end up buying an apple charger. This is not what you want from a charger. It can't even keep up the charge in my iPad when plugged in running Pandora.

    The Samsung rep inside Best Buy said this is what I needed to charge my Samsung Tablet, while it doesn't work very well with this tablet. It may work with something else. Good Luck

    For a 2 amp charger this is a joke to say the least.... bought it trusting Best Buy's brand. A generic 2 amp from wal mart charges much faster. Will return

    This product does not work with any usb. It takes a lot of trial and error to find a cord that will work. Didn't work within same brand either. Would not buy again.

    The plug and cable do not fit snugly !!! Hence...both become detached easily with a slight “tug” !!!

    This is a lower watt unit which takes longer to charge your unit. Fine if you are patient and willing to wait.

    Does not give enough power to normal charge a tablet. I get "slow charging" when I use it.

    Compared to chargers of similar specs, it seems to be very slow.
