The RavPower USB dual port 24w wall charger is among the cheapest USB adapters we’ve seen. Yet it offers workability with USB 3.0 devices and max charging speeds for USB 2.0 and earlier devices. It has well isolated ports, foldable 120 volt plug prongs. Plus, the charger features highly reliable operation, which is perhaps its greatest claim to fame.
Compeditively priced, high quality USB wall power output featuring PowerIQ and VoltageBoost technology, for fastest charging of most any USB mobile device.
At under $11 per unit, this RavPower AC USB charge can recharge even the highest demand tablets and phones. Plus, it does so as quickly, or even faster than the stock wall chargers that come with these devices. It’s got some awesome push.
The RavPower home charger can replace just about any stock USB 2.0 charger, without giving up any performance. It runs cool to the touch. Besides, it runs with complete silence. It’s easy to find in the dark with its gray-white pilot lamp. Plus, it offers iSmart technology, described further below.
Each port offers the fastest recharging of any connected mobile device. Yet it costs less than half the price of many stock USB chargers. These include those shipped with Amazon, Samsung, and Apple mobile devices. We use ours nearly daily, and it quickly charges our Kindle Fire, Apple iPad Air, and Samsung tablets. It’s also an excellent charging accessory for the JBL Flip waterproof speakers. Quite pleased with it.
Physical Features of this RavPower USB Dual Port 24w Wall Charger
Lightweight yet Rugged Build
Holding the RavPower smart charger in your hand inspires confidence that it won’t easily break when dropped or stepped on.
Visible Lamp in USB Ports
Find this near the USB ports. The lighted ports are not bright enough to use as a night light. But they glow plenty bright for finding the charger in dark rooms.
Two USB Ports (Dual Output Ports)
You get two high-current USB ports.
Foldable AC Prongs
The AC prongs on this USB charger fold into slots in the rugged white plastic case. This protects them from bending and damage. It also makes for simple storage of the charger.
Just Right Size
The case is large enough to grasp easily. Yet it’s 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.
This dual port RavPower USB charger can be easily tucked into a suitcase among clothes. Or, stick it in a briefcase. Worry not of damaging the mains prongs, so long as you fold them before packing. Yes, these prongs retract into the charger body when not using or moving it.
Plugs Into Standard AC Wall Outlet
Input is 100-240 volts AC at 50-60Hz. Output is 5 volts DC, at 4.8 amps max.
Runs Very Cool, Little Warmth
This RavPower smart USB charger gets a little warm while charging. But never does it get too hot to touch. When charging smaller mobile devices such as iPhones and portable media players, this power adapter barely warms.
Benefits, Pros, Features, and Advantages of this RavPower USB Dual Port 24w Wall Charger
Easy to Unfold the AC Prongs
Extending the 120-volt prongs takes little effort.
High Current, but Cheap Price
You can buy the RavPower USB Charger for less than $12 online.
No buzzing, humming, whistling. You might hear only very small frying sounds while the RavPower is recharging a device.
Low RFI and EMI
We heard little if any radio frequency interference (RFI) to AM and FM radio.
Each USB port senses what the best charging current will be for each device you plug into it. Then, it adjusts itself accordingly, to give that ideal current value. So, no matter what USB device you connect, you’ll get the fullest charge in the fastest time.
Both Ports Each Deliver Full Power
Since both ports give the full 2.4 Amp USB current (12 watts apiece), they’ll charge ANY USB 2.0 device. So don’t worry over which port to charge your device from. In fact, we often charge our Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro SM-T900 (a very large tablet). It charges well with this dual port charger. Further we charge this high current tablet along with other devices too. Both devices charge quickly. One never slows down the other’s charging. We’ve also successfully recharged iPads, iPods, numerous smart phones, and Kindle Fire HDX tablets with this RavPower charger.
Good Power Output Quality
Voltage regulation seems quite good over the entire range of drawn currents. Holds very steady at 5 volts output throughout the recharge cycle.
Switch Mode Power Supply
Switching power supply tech makes this charger quite small and feather light. Yet it can give out the hefty current needed to power today’s most demanding USB mobile devices.
Over-Current and Over-Voltage Protection
The power circuits shut down if the RavPower detects a short circuit in the device or the USB charge cable.
Limited but Long 18-Month Warranty
Unusually long warranty for charger adapters like this one.
Problems, Cons, Disadvantages, and Limitations of this RavPower USB Dual Port 24w Wall Charger
Indoor Use Only
No USB Power Cables Included
Indeed, not all USB charge cables carry the max current from this 2-port charger. So you must use high-current cables to get the quickest charging. It would help thus, if this adapter included a high current USB cable. Say a high power micro USB or lightning charge cable. But given the low price of this charger, we don’t mind buying our own cables.
This RavPower USB charger is so small, that you might lose it. So take care. Do not forget where you leave it.
Charging devices nearly every night with the RavPower dual USB charger, has never disappointed us. Devices always charged quickly and fully, and lasted the full time per charge, as documented in their owners manuals. We’re thrilled with how well this wall charger performs, while costing so little. Thanks to this, 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 98 out of 100.
