Top Positive Review

First off, I paid full price for this item and am not associated with the company nor did I receive any ‘rebates’ – this is an unbiased review.

For the price, it is what I expected. I opened it up to see if there really was surge protection and the quality of the build and ran some electrical tests on it.
1. There is a (small) surge suppression device in the unit. You can see it as a blue/silver device in the photo of the circuit board. This is good!
2. The quality of the soldering of the power input to the circuit board could be better. Not a significant item, but at the speed these are probably assembled, I would expect a less than perfect soldering job.
3. The wires providing power to the brass strips are a little thinner in gauge than what I would expect and the way they are spot welded to the brass strips is somewhat questionable. I gently tugged on them, and they seemed to be attached OK, but there is room for improvement.
4. The circuit board was only held in by one mounting screw to the case, but the way everything fits together, this isn’t an issue.
5. The thickness, therefore the current carrying capacity, of the brass strips is thinner than I expected. The strips carry the power to the outlets. At full load, they might get warm due to their resistance. Thicker would be better, but then again, this is an inexpensive unit.
6. The area of the strips that “grab” the prongs of the plug is pretty good … better than I expected.
7. The USB outlets do provide the rated power – you can see a 2.4 Amp load at 4.9V.
8. I plugged a heater in to each socket. The heater draws over 1400W, so it is at just about the maximum rating. Each outlet worked fine.
9. The circuit breaker switch feels pretty flimsy when switching it on and off. I would not expect it to last very long if it is repeatedly switched hundreds of times. Given that most people will leave it in the “ON” position, this may not be a big problem.

I’ve bought several of these, and they have worked fine so far.

For the price, I would say this appears to be a decent value. I like its compact size, the USB port configuration and that it has slots on the back so it can be mounted on a wall or desk.

Top Critical Review

This product worked great for a couple months plugged in by my nightstand to charge my phone and Fitbit overnight. A few nights ago I had to unplug it after I woke up to smelling smoke right next to me. One of my usb charging cables had begun to melt onto my nightstand and was smoking. I??m really glad I woke up when I did.
