If you have an iPhone and and iPad and/or iPod you need this. The reason is that the power needed for the iPad and the iPhone/iPod is different. The cables are the same but the power needs are not. I ran into problems when I plugged and iPad into an iPhone "socket" and it did not work. I believe the reason is the the iPad has two batteries and the other has one. Plug this in and your problems are solved. There is another reason and that is the cables are different between the devices. This will make any lighting cable work. Every plug in a cable to your iPad and it does not work? The power supply is the reason. Also, if you have ever plugged into an external battery the iPad may not work for the same reason. This is the solution. I know of no other solution. As the family has multiple devices, I own a dozen of these. Great device, great solution, great price. If you have multiple devices like me you need them. PS - I wait till they go on sale and save quite a bit.

I don't know how it does it, but it lets you charge your ipad from a usb port that doesn't charge an ipad

Nice addition to my iPad travel bag. It's charging my iPad on my laptop right now. Bought two, taking one to the office.

Works great, recommendation is to use for a back up charger. Use the wall charger that came with the unit for primary and this as a secondary (when wall charger is not available.

There are a lot of USB ports that will charge an iPad or an iPhone just fine, albeit at a lower rate than the Apple-required 2.0 amperes (iPad) or 1.0 amperes (iPhone). This is good if you have a lot of time and not too much USB current. One can bring this tiny device when you travel, leave a device with a standard USB port turned on all night, and you will have a back-up to your using the iPad charge or the iPhone charger. (Or use your iPhone charger to charge your iPad). Another use is with this tiny device you can use a lot of solar-powered batteries with a USB output that may not make the iPad "happy". Frankly, it's the device is small enough that you can pack one "just in case". One nice advantage is that you can plug your iPad cord into this and plug this device into your computer and the computer will not recognize the iPad or iPhone and your computer will not load iTunes.

Does EXACTLY what it should. It's a bit slower charger, but that's a good thing. Rapid charges weaken batteries over time. For an over night charge, it's great. The best thing is it doesn't try to sync with iTunes everytime you plug it in.

This is not just for iPads. I have a Verizon 4G Jetpack Mifi (Novatel 4510L) which rather infamously will turn off all radios when it is connected via USB to a computer. It will only charge when connected to an AC charger. There are several hacks online showing how to cut a USB cable, short and solder the white-green wires, etc. I've done it, it's a pain, but it works. This device does exactly the same thing without the drama.

Not much to say, does exactly what it is supposed to do: allows your iPad to charge when plugged into a low power USB port on a PC.

I saw this advertised as a device that increases the voltage to your iPad charging cable, but I think if that were true it would fry it (for that I take off a star). However, it does show a charging symbol when plugged directly into a USB port of my Windows 7 desktop. Whether this device increases the current about the standard 500mA I don't know yet (but I'll update when I find out), but it does do something else useful: it allows you to use any USB port to charge your devices that charge over USB. Wow, amazing! you say...but the real trick is that you don't need any drivers, no matter what OS you're using. I think this little guy must short the D and D- pins on your cable (don't worry, it's not permanent), which is what your wall charger does. So now you have a handy adapter to throw onto the end of a data cable that fits your phone (or whatever) so you can charge it. I don't think it would damage anything connected to it, since the voltage should always be 5V.
