Benchmarks

Specifications
The IDAPT i3 Universal Desktop Charger has three ports to plug in tips for charging various devices. The device plugs into the AC outlet on the wall and has a power switch on the back. It can operate on 85-240 VAC and has DC output of 10.5W. the device measures 110 x 169 x 32mm.

In Use
The IDAPT i3 Universal Desktop Charger is an interesting charger that is about the size of a modern answering machine. It has three rectangular openings on the top of the charger that you plug different tips into. My review unit shipped with tips for the iPhone, miniUSB, microUSB, Samsung phones, Nokia phones, and Sony Ericsson phones.

The idea is that with one cord and a single charger you can charge three of your devices. The little tips are easy to install and remove and the charger works well. If you need other tips, there are more available. Additional tips include ones for the Palm line of smartphones and chargers for the Nintendo DS and a DSi tip is coming soon.

I tested the IDAPT i3 Universal Desktop Charger with my iPhone and it worked perfectly. The iPhone 3GS recognized the charger immediately and it charge the device fully with no issues. The IDAPT i3 Universal Desktop Charger is rather large if your desk is really packed, you might have hard time finding space for it.

The three ports for tips are arranged in a two on top and one on bottom set up to allow larger devices more space to plug in. The charger is black and looks good. To eliminate wasted power, the IDAPT i3 Universal Desktop Charger has a rocker switch that you can use to turn it off. A tip is also available that lets the IDAPT charge AA and AAA batteries. You can get the IDAPT in a number of colors including red, blue, green, yellow, pink, white, orange, silver, and gold. The IDAPT i3 Universal Desktop Charger with six tips I reviewed sells for 59.95 €.

Verdict

Conclusion

Pros

    Charges multiple devices at once
  • Interchangeable tips
  • Only needs on power outlet

Cons

  • Tips cost extra
  • Rather bulky design

Verdict
The IDAPT i3 Universal Desktop Charger is an interesting charger that might save space on your desk and reduce the wires you have to hide. If power outlets are at a premium in your home or office, the IDAPT i3 Universal Desktop Charger is a good way to take some of them back.
