If you’ve got an iPad or two it’s only a matter of time before you get fed up with the fact that it can take forever to charge it. Especially if you only have access to a low powered USB port… doubly so when you need to get your charge on in a hurry for a pair of iPads!
That is where the Kanex DoubleUp portable charger comes in! This 110v charger plugs into the wall and supplies two full 2.1amp USB ports to allow a pair of iPads (or tablets, phones, etc.) to charge at their maximum rate.
I tested the DoubleUp with an iPad Mini and a new Hisense 7″ tablet, and it seemed to work just fine. I didn’t exactly break out any measurement equipment to prove that the ports are putting out 2.1amps each, but I think its safe to assume they are. 😉
One thing I always appreciate is when vendors include the folding plug built directly into a charger. Kanex doesn’t disappoint as their twin prong 110 plug folds flush with the unit. It also uses a rather unique method of opening in that you kind of hook the edge of it with your finger and roll it open as opposed to pulling it out the way others do. Its not the best opening mechanism I’ve encountered, but it gets the job done.
You can pick up the Kanex DoubleUp on Amazon for around $30 in either white or black. Personally, I’d go with the white as the black one they sent me started showing scuffs immediately.
