    Great product; thoughtfully designed

    I bought this 2-3 weeks ago for use in my car with a wireless cell phone charger. It does suit its intended purpose very well. PROS: Great price for a wall charger. Great brand reliability. I like the blue LED light on the top of the plug, so I know electricity is being supplied; the LED is perfectly visible even during the day, but not excessively bright that it becomes distracting. It isn't a perfect cube, rather, it is curved on two opposing sides...this is handy, so you know how the prongs are oriented when plugging it into an outlet that you don't have a clear line-of-sight for (behind a cabinet for instance). CONS: None.

    We always buy extra home and vehicle charge cords when both of us upgrade to identical new phones. However, others may have miltiple models with different plug jacks. This Insignia charger is compact and has two folding plug blades and a USB port that can be used with any style plug end on a corresponding cord to fit various phones. The original charger that comes with our Samsung Galaxy S8 is a single application cord with fixed blades that only fits the latest Android jack with curved edges for the new plug. Tbese two features of the Insignia unit have the above-noted benefits great for an extra charger.

    I bought this unit to use with the afore-reviewed USB extension cable to possibly power the afore-reviewed Laptop Cooler (the cable that came with it was Just Long Enough to plug into a DirecTV box located next to the receiver being "cooled" by the Laptop Cooler). I didn't use it for the "intended application", but I'm keeping it as a "just In Case" item as I may need it later to power a 5V cooling fan or for my wife to charge her phone (she's "hard" on phone chargers!). I gave 5 stars because I've had no problems with past Best Buy "electronic" purchases...

    What I needed to use GPS at home.

    I didn't have a way to plug my TomTom GPS into a wall outlet in order to enter routes and destinations at home. Was on a trip and needed to do some setup in motel at night. The only downer was that I ran into a Best Buy to make a quick purchase and get going again and I couldn't find anyone to help me that seemed very sure about what I wanted and could guarantee compatibility. This was important to me because I was travelling and just passing through and not able to return it if it didn't work. It was what I needed and worked fine, but nobody seemed to know that for sure.

    Chargers can be expensive and bad. This is my second one. Not because the first broke, I just needed one more. I don't like charging from my computer as it is usually slow going. Since this has 2.4Amp it speeds up the charging significantly. I simply use whatever cord I have available as it is the charger that decides the speed. The little light on top that shows it is actually connected is very convenient as well. I say buy this as your charger and use whatever cord you have.

    The help in store was ok. Asked one rep for help and he showed us where they were. Had to search along with another customer to find more sales help who could assist us with finding what we want and explain the differences between brands. Went to purchase the line was very long but had many registers open so that was a positive. The cashier was friendly and kind.

    USB wall charger is great.

    This charger works great, but the only negative comment I have is that it is square so it has to be plugged into the bottom wall socket if you have something else plugged in. I wish it was thinner and horizontal like the wall charger that comes with your phone that can be plugged into any socket without consideration of anything else needing to be plugged in.

    The wall charger I had bought previously at Best Buy broke and no longer worked. So having a great experience at the Lone Tree Best Buy, off I went to find a replacement. The staff there are great at helping me find what I need and want. This brand was recommended and seems sturdy and so far has sped up my phones charging time! Good stuff!

    I added one of these Insignia chargers to each of the carry bags I set up for the SONY Extra Base speakers that I bought recently from Best Buy. That way I can forget worrying whether I have the right charger with me. It works really fast and I like the fold-down feature of the plug.

    bought two for my grandkids, they were always fighting on whose turn it was to put on their tablets. Often it took all day or overnight to reach 100 % with the old ones. my grandkids would go, till the screens blacked out. this plug in makes babysitting a lot easier, It charges the tablets very quick. I made a good buy on my part.

    I like the Insignia USB Wall Charger to charge my cell phone. I don't like the chargers that are wireless. I like to be able to plug my electronics that need charging using my Insignia USB Wall Charger which is the best one ever. Great product for the money.

    Provides fast charge on my Android phone and works as well as the original charger (which I lost somewhere). I appreciated the option of not spending an extra $10 for a cord. There is another version that does include the cord if you need it. Nice product.

    I bought an LED strip light to mount under cabinets but i didn't realize it only had a USB port for power. I purchased this USB charger simply to provide AC power to the strip light. It works great and even has a dim blue power indicator that lets me know the outlet is live.

    I was having trouble charging my Jabra bluetooth earpiece. My computer USB port was the only available outlet. After a few days of low charge and losing use of my earpiece due to that, I decided I needed a better source of power for my recharging needs. I paid about $20 for the wall charger, and have not had any trouble with my charge since.

    My Best Buy salesman showed me this plug as an alternative to spending more than twice as much on a name brand replacement. I especially liked that the blades fold in because the plug was a travel replacement. It works just as well as the name brand version and is easy to keep in my purse.

    Have been using one of these for nearly 2 years and I just recently bought an LG G5 that uses USB-C. It has quick charging and claims it needs the special charger it comes with but using this Insignia Charger charges my phone fully in about 40-50 minutes from nearly dead (10-20%). Best third party wall charger I have ever purchased.

    I'm not a fan of Insignia products when my first one was an LCD TV and the colors got a jacked up right after the manufacturer warranty. This charger doesn't get hot and was really the only one with enough output to charge my fiancée's Samsung Note PRO tablet. Quality does seem good. Maybe they've come a long way since that TV 7 years ago.

    Charger that fits behind a cabinet

    This charger solves the problem of cords breaking when the charger is in an electric outlet behind a cabinet. My outlet is behind a nightstand and I kept breaking the cord when the nightstand was moved closer to the wall. With the USB port located on the bottom of the charger this doesn't happen.

    I bought this charger for my Kindle Fire HDX 8.9. It was not as expensive as the oem charger and performs like the charger that came with the Kindle. This charger fast charges and also keeps up with charging when the Kindle is in use. Great price for a great charger. Also fat charges our phones and ipods
