This review of the iClever IC TC02 dual port 24W USB wall charger adapter, describes how this is one of the cheapest high-current USB wall adapters we have seen. Yet it works flawlessly and lasts a very long time.
At under $9 per unit, this AC USB adapter can charge even the highest demand tablet computers, and does so about as quickly as the stock chargers that come with these devices. It’s got some real muscle, and this home charger can replace just about any stock charger, without sacrificing performance. It runs cool to lukewarm, is virtually silent, is easy to find in the dark with its blue luminous port face, and has folding AC prongs that can be retracted to protect them from damage as well as to enhance the unit’s storability. Yet it costs way less than half the price of a stock USB adapter, often shipped with Apple, Samsung, and Amazon mobile devices. We’ve used ours mostly every day over the past few weeks, and it quickly charges our Kindle Fire, Apple iPad Air, and Samsung tablets.
iClever IC TC02 Wall Charger Benefits, Pros, Features, and Advantages
High Current, but Cheap Price
Can be purchased for less than $9 online.
LED Illuminated Ports
They light where inside the USB ports. But though not really bright enough to double as a night light, the lamp plenty bright for finding this adapter in the dark.
The AC prongs fold into slots in the rugged white plastic case, protecting them from bending and damage, and making for simple storage of the charger.
The iClever IC TC02 Wall Charger Has Silent Operation
No buzzing, humming, whistling, and only very small frying sounds are heard while this is plugged in and charging a device.
Low RFI and EMI
We found little, if any, interference to AM and shortwave radio fron this charger.
Just the Right Size
The case is large enough to grasp easily, but not so big that it covers the second receptacle in a 2-receptacle outlet. Compact design, for sure, but nor is the iClever charger too small to for handling with certainty.
Each USB port senses the optimum charging current for each device you plug in, and adjusts itself according, to provide that ideal value. So, no matter what device you connect to the IC-TC02, you’ll get the best charge in the shortest time.
iClever IC TC02 Wall Charger Ports are Electrically Equal
Since both ports are capable of delivering the full 2.4 Amp USB current, you needn’t concern yourself with which port is the correct one to use when powering particular mobile devices. See next item for more details.
High Amperage USB on Both Ports at the Same Time
Provides up to 2.4 amps of USB charging current (12 watts per port). We often charge our Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro SM-T900 (very large tablet computer) with this dual port, full USB power accessory. We’ve also successfully charged iPads, iPods, numerous smart phones, and Kindle Fire HDX tablets with this nightlight / charger combo adapter.
Good Power Output Quality
Voltage regulation appears quite good over the entire range of drawn currents. Holds very steady at 5 volts output.
This iClever USB charger gets a little warm while charging. But never does it get too hot to handle. When charging smaller mobile devices such as iPhones and portable media players, this power adapter barely warms at all.
The iClever IC TC02 Wall Charger Features Dual Ports
You get two high-current USB ports. Each can deliver up to 2.4 amps (12 watts), for a total of 5 volts at 4.8 amps (24 watts).
Charges Two Max Current USB 2.0 Devices at Once
Two full-current USB device may be charged at once, via the dual USB ports.
Switching Power Supply Technology
This makes this unit very compact and light. Yet it delivers the hefty current needed to power today’s most demanding USB mobile devices.
Plugs Into Standard Wall Outlet
Input is 100-240 volts AC at 50-60Hz, 0.6 amps. Output is 5 volts DC, at 4.8 amps max.
Limited but Generous 12-Month Warranty
iClever IC TC02 Wall Charger Problems, Cons, Disadvantages, and Limitations
No Charge Cables Included
Indeed, not all USB charge cables will carry the maximum current available via the IC-TC02. You must use cords designated as high-current charge or high-current charge / data / sync, in order to obtain the most rapid charging from this iClever wall charger. So, given that this current level is at present, a kind of USB specialty, it would be helpful if the adapter included a high current USB cable, say a micro USB or lightning charge cable. However, given the low price of this charger, we certainly do not mind providing our own cables.
Indoor Use Only
Folding AC Prongs Sometimes Develop Loose Connections
Be careful to retract the prongs when not using this adapter. This prevents accidental whacking them. Shocks can create faulty connections in them such that the unit fails to operate consistently.

Devices always charged quickly and fully, and lasted the full time per charge, as documented in their users guides. We’re pleased with how well this wall charger performs, and yet it costs so little. Thanks to this unit, we never order stock charger replacements for our mobile devices anymore. This is a well-designed and well-constructed USB appliance, and so, we’d rate it at 99 out of 100.
