It has been a whole week now since I received this package so I immediately filmed the in car footage from the above video and after the initial shock of the iPad Air 64GB not charging when first plugged in it turns out, after a lot of trying out and cable checking, it was down to the fact that port B on each charger is not able to push enough power to feed the iPad Air’s requirements (unless I got a faulty batch). I didn’t after more research it would appear that the wattage to charge the iPad is not available at port B.
This aside I have to say these chargers are amazingly quick at charging your devices and I found after just a half hour journey there was a battery percentage increase on the iPad Air of around 20% using port A. and on the iPhone 5 an increase of 25% whilst under use from a Bluetooth headset.
This now makes sense as to why it points out on the packaging that port A is for Apple devices, though port B worked with the iPhone 5 perfectly well, as well as charging a Newtrent IMP120D battery backup, a Bluetooth headset and although not seen on video there was my sons old Galaxy S1 which cheered him up no end when he needed to make a call.
These two, yes TWO, (one black one white) in one box for this money is extremely good value for a very visually appealing and sleek device that does all that is offered from the manufacturer Newtrent it would be more common to see one device for not much less than the current asking price for such a premium product let alone two in one box.
Basically to round up this post I would highly recommend these for a family who travel with the children, a couple who need one each or even a power hungry techaholic like myself who likes to have full power wherever he go’s. A five star rating from me. Hit the Amazon affiliate links below for current pricing in your country.
