The first thing I noticed, while charging the iPad was, it was feeding noise into my audio system. I was using an audio cord plugged in and not using the Bluetooth on this particular headset. Next trip I'll try my Zulu2 with bluetooth and see if the noise is still there.August 21, 2017Purchased

I just purchased a Piper Lance and fly with an ipad and DUAL ads-b receiver. I first used the charger on my flight from Chicago to Nashville and it worked perfectly; I was able to charge my ipad, DUAL, ipod, and cell phone thruout the flight as needed.August 16, 2017Purchased

Is compatible with the iPad and iPhones I own ( as long as you have the right cable). Shows voltage and current draw. It beeps (loudly) when the voltage drops below a certain level. If it came with any instructions or specifications I couldn't find them.July 27, 2017Purchased

It has all the features, two 2.4 amp ports, works on 12 or 24 volt systems, is small, sturdy and well-built, and even has a digital volt meter/charging amp meter. All that for half what lesser adapters used to cost.July 27, 2017Purchased

- Question and Answer
Browse 12 questions Browse 12 questions and 24 answersWill this unit cause noise on my radios?BEST ANSWER: It should not cause noise on the radios.If the DC input is listed as 12v to 24v, and since airplanes with a 24v battery use 28v internally, won't such an airplane exceed the specs of the device? [On July 3 I had smoke in the cockpit during flight when another brand USB charger started overheating and melting. Proper specs and high quality are necessary in the cockpit environment.]BEST ANSWER: This device is designed to work with both 24V and 12 V aircraft system.Has anyone tested this with an IPAD running Foreflight on long flights? My other 2A chargers don't keep up.BEST ANSWER: I have used this device many times now with my iPad Air running the Garmin Pilot app in a Skylane. It performs as specified delivering 2.4 amps from each output which will keep both devices connected fully charged indefinitely. One possible negative is that on a 12vdc source it will beep continuously. BTW, I had previously used 3 different Dual 2.4 USB Cigarette Lighter Chargers #6588A. Each of them only delivered 1.0 amps per output and therefore unable to hold a charge on a single iPad which would eventual die on a long flight.Has this been tested for EMI that degrades performance of avionics, especially, but not limited to, GPS navigators?BEST ANSWER: I fly a 1956 Cessna 180 VFR only. I fly with an iPad with a Bad Elf GPS. I have not noticed any changes with the Bad Elf or my Garmin 396 GPS. I have not noticed any change to VHF radio static either. I love this charger!Today with 26.3 V connected, external power, to my 24 V airplane, all was well until I connected my iPad. Shortly after I got a red blinking warning along with constant beeping. The iPad was drawing about 2 amps, same as it did in my 12-14V truck with no warning. My airplane system usually runs close to 28V in flight. So, 26.3V... Too much or too little?BEST ANSWER: 26.3 volts would be too low to charge a "24V" battery. If you are not experiencing progressive battery discharge with your airplane, most likely you have a voltage drop with the circuits between the battery and the phone charger.
First make sure cigarette-lighter socket is clean, and the phone charger is snug when plugged-in. Next possible problem would be the connection behind the cig-socket, then the circuit breaker, followed by the master switch.
Similar things to check with the car, (except the master and circuit breaker).
Mine works without beeping in my car, but beeps in my brothers' van during engine start.
In a typical rental plane, mine beeps when cutting the alternator breaker when checking the charging system during runup.
Note- try cleaning the cig-sockets with a small wire-brush, BUT, make sure master is OFF! - Otherwise you'll short-out the lighter circuit, and with the car, you should disconnect one of the battery terminals...Does this unit have an internal fuse? if so, what is the amp rating?BEST ANSWER: This charger does not have a fuse, but uses a built in "smart circuit" design that protects from overcharging and aslo over current.One of the reviewers mentioned it is not able to charge the iPad, but only maintain the charge. Can someone confirm or provide some more details? Thank you.BEST ANSWER: This device is able to charge the iPad.Can I use this in my car as well?BEST ANSWER: Yes it can be used in a car.Will this work in my car?BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will work in your car.What is the wattage output?BEST ANSWER: It puts out 2.4 amps on both ports.The charger for a garmin 696 will work. My car charger for my iPhone won't. Will this work?BEST ANSWER: What are you trying to charge?I need to know if the reach on the end of the device will reach 1.5" into the socket. If it is shorter than that it will not contact the power at the bottom of the socket?BEST ANSWER: Yes it will reach 1.5" into the socket.
