I recently got to try out the Bolse 4.2Amp 20W High Output Turbo Charge Dual USB Port Wall Charger (that's a mouthful!) and see how well it worked. For something that looks so basic, it's a nice wall charger to have around, as it does more than the ones you normally get by default with your smart phones and tablets.
The first thing that stands out is that it has two USB ports for charging, and each one is rated for 2.1 amps. That means that not only can you charge something that draws a lot when charging (think iPad), you can charge TWO of them at once! I tried out charging both my current generation iPad and my Kindle at the same time, and they both charged in the normal time I would expect. Even better is that the charger goes into "trickle mode" when the charging is complete, so you're not continuing to pull a full current when things are topped off. I like that feature. Add in the nice touch where the electrical prongs fold into the unit when not in use, and this is an excellent wall charger.
When I go on vacation, I usually end up with more than one device to charge overnight (either mine or someone else's). This Bolse wall charger will make it easy to get every device charged back up to full capacity with no arguments over who gets to use the charger first.
