    Picked up one of these a couple weeks ago from a seller named "glassyu".

    This item is advertised as having a 2.1 Amp USB port in addition to a 1A USB port.. It definitely does not put out 2.1 Amps on either port. I tested it with a multimeter. You can see from this picture that it's only putting out around 0.4 Amps. Now, to be fair, the original charger that came with the phone puts out about 1.7 Amps according to this multimeter. The original charger supposedly puts out 2.1 Amps so after normalizing I would say this charger probably puts out 1 Amp.


    My OPO took several hours to charge with this accessory.

    Don't get it.

    Other notes:
    shipping took about 2 weeks, as the seller said it would.

    I wonder whether they'll do a refund
    The Chinese do seem to be good at that
    Ive had them send out a new item then a refund as the items were so bad
