    Does NOT charge iPad at 12 watts

    Posted
    Wandering97340

    This does not work properly with my iPad. I got this to replace my Apple charger destroyed in a lightning strike. I was sick of the slow charging times borrowing my iPhone charging block. Well, guess what? This does not charge any faster. I double-checked the specs and confirmed - yes, it's 5 volts at 2.4 amps for a listed total of 12 watts. But I plugged it into my wattmeter to see actual load and it stays at 5 watts. No improvement over the iPhone charging block. I don't know whether this is Insignia's fault or Apple's, but assigning blame isn't going to help. It doesn't charge MY device at 12 watts. I went back and bought an Apple charger and things work fine. For me, this is only handy in a space limited area due to the side-entry design of the USB port.

    Common issues but solid unit

    After having a problem finding a phone charger that could handle charging my phone and case (with the backup battery built in), the insignia finally put out enough amps to get the job done. My biggest gripe is that they did what I've found most manufactures doing. They placed the prongs for the power outlet right in the center of the unit, and then made the unit case larger than half of the wall outlet. This makes things challenging to use the other plug in the outlet for anything more than a lamp fixture. Aside from that, the charger has worked flawlessly as advertised.

    I asked for help and the associate showed me this and said it was the only one they had. It might have been the only one in stock. It works fine but it is way overpriced for what it does and I would never buy it again. It is also hard to plug the USB into it as the opening is on the top or bottom and not the front.

    I needed a charger for my tablet when I forgot mine in an outlet while on vacation.. It worked, but does not hold the charge when I am using my tablet... I am not sure that this charger is completely compatible with my older tab 2. Still, it works.

    I bought this product to replace my iPads 12w charger. I feel like this charges a lot slower than original iPad charger. Haven’t tried with other devices

    This wall charger works as advertised. However it is not a fast charge with my Samsung Galaxy S7 phone. It will charge the phone overnight, so it does the job. Just don't expect a fast charge.

    It works okay. It's a PLUG! Only complaint is they had ONE to choose from and it was WAY overpriced!. I needed it in a hurry so I bought it, but that is usually the case with most accessories at Best Buy.

    This is a simple product good for helping charge my Garmin device. The downsides include it only having 1 USB port and being on the large side making it difficult to place in a power strip.

    I bought this to recharge my iPad faster than my previous plug...It worked for about two weeks and now I am back to the slow charge again. Not sure why this is happening ..Could be my old iPad!

    Grateful charger for smart watch Like fitbit. Although, I was told by the salesperson you could chargue both your phone and your smart watch with this, but you cannot. Disappointing

    This charger is good for a slow charge, but if you are looking for a turbo charger, this is not the one.

    The charger brick is fine. It does not charge at high speeds like the one that comes with the phone. You also have to buy the cord separately which is a little obnoxious.

    Works well, can't really complain. Though the cord you have to put in needs quite a push. Only bought because that was all that was left at time of purchasing. prefer other products.

    When traveling I forgot to pack the charger for my Samsung tablet. Used a borrowed phone charger, but charging was slow. Bought this but slow charging was still a problem..

    I would recommend the product, but not the Muskogee store. I have been lied to, sold unnecessary equipment and ignored for the last time in there

    This is a little overpriced for what it is but it works for charging a Nextbook tablet with a micro USB port. I already had the full USB to micro usb cable,etc.
