I’m not sure why I bought this 6 in 1 charger. It’s not like I have to charge 6 devices at the same time. I was caught up in the hype with my friends looking at this online deal – if you bought 2, you get a discount.
Well I have it now.
But what I really want to share is the indications on the device. If you look closely, you can see some marking on the right side of the devices – 4 is marked ‘i’ and 2 of it is marked ‘G’ .
After some searching I found the same product on Amazon UK. Under the product description, it states the following:-
1. If you want to charge iPad, please connect it to the USB port of 1, 2, 3, or 4.
2. If you want to charge sumgalaxy Ipad (I think there a typo error in the ad), please connect it to the USB port of 5 or 6.
So ‘i’ is for charging iPad and ‘G’ is for charging Galaxy Tab.
The output requirements for my iPad 2 is 5.1V 2.1A. I don’t have a Galaxy Tab but from the net, Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 requires 5V 2A. So there’s a slight difference there.
I found this article useful on how different devices work on different USB ports – gives you an idea of what type of charger to buy for your device.
