Specifications

The Bracketron Dual USB Charger has dual USB ports with one that has 2.1A for the iPad and another that has 1A for all other devices. The charger fits into any DC outlet in a car or truck and has a power LED. The Bracketron Dual USB Charger is available now for $24.95.

In Use

I tend to read books on my iPad when I am sitting at my kids' school waiting for them to come out. I generally sit there for 45 minutes before they come out and it can be a long wait without something to do. I often read books on the iPad and if I forget to plug it in, I end up bored because I have nothing to do. The problem is that none of the DC adapters I have will charge the iPad from the outlet in my car.

The Bracketron Dual USB Charger is perfect for people like me that want to charge the iPad on the go and also have a smartphone that they are using for GPS navigation or another device. If you are going on a trip and want to use your smartphone for navigation and the passenger wants to read on the iPad this thing is perfect.

The Bracketron Dual USB Charger has a USB port surrounded in green that has the 2.1A that the iPad needs to charge. It's very cool that the small charger can fit two USB ports on it and still be so small. The other port is perfect for powering your iPhone while you drive. The Bracketron Dual USB Charger also comes in very handy when I am driving my car at the racetrack. I can use it to continuously power my camera for video and to power the iPhone for the lap timer at the same time.

The iPad charges perfectly from the Bracketron Dual USB Charger and the second device plugged in does too. This simple little charger does exactly what you want at a low price.

Verdict

Pros

  • Charges iPad
  • Allows for the charging of two things at once

Cons

  • Glowing power LED is annoying at night
 

Conclusion

The Bracketron Dual USB Charger is a perfect charger for those that travel with the iPad and other devices needing USB charging.
