I haven't had any of the radio interference issues others have noted - at least as yet - and everything was well powered with no incident. Just what one would hope and expect would be the case. So far, so good! And, a very reasonable value as well.February 23, 2018Purchased
2 weeks agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance1 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?NoUnusable Due to Radio StaticIt works as far as charging. As soon as I plug a USB cable int it, squelch on the com radios opens. Perhaps if I found well-shielded USB cables for my cockpit devices this would not be an issue. One of these cables has a right-angle for my ipad, and the other came with my Dual XGPS190, so I am not keen to try out other cables to see if it controls the interference. 2 other USB chargers have not created static with these cables in this plane.January 22, 2018Purchased

I have done this trip nine times and always had to shut the i-pad off to save the battery for departures and arrivals. With this charger, it stayed at 100% the entire flight.November 18, 2017Purchased
3 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Works perfectly!I'm very happy with the performance of this product! Charged 2 iPads and an iPhone for hours while also powering a portable ADS-B device on a long flight. (FYI, my airplane has a 24V electrical system.) Not only did the devices charge and run perfectly, but the unit barely even got warm. Important note: I have found that any issues with comm radio interference has to do with the charging cables, not the charger -- i.e. the USB to Lightning cables for iOS devices. If you use higher quality shielded cables (definitely not the white ones that come with Apple products), you won't have an issue.April 20, 2017Durability1 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5GreatFlew xcountry with power hub.
