CE Tech Dual USB Power adapter. (SKU 167010) from Home Depot. This product was supplied by Home Depot through the SEEDs evaluation program.
Initial impressions, The adapter is about 2.8 inches long, and about 1 inch wide at the USB end. The adapter has two USB connections, one marked 1.0 Amp, and the other marked 2.1 Amp. The adapter fits standard Auto power accessory connectors. The adapter fits snugly when installed, and when operating projects a blue LED indicator light.
It provides 5 volt power at the rated current for charging portable electronics, that are chargeable from a USB power source. This device provides sufficient power to charge tablets, phones and the like. This device will regulate down the 12 volt car voltage to the 5 volt level, and provide it at two current levels.
Application: I used this USB Power adapter to charge a tablet normally requires a 1 amp charge, in the car the CE Tech Dual USB Power adapter worked fine. The USB Power adapter was just slightly warm after being use for a while with only my tablet connected. Since I donât have any devices that require more than 1amp of charging current, I had no way to try a higher current charging device. I would expect this device to support charging both a tablet and a phone at the same time while in a car.
From this limited evaluation, I did not note any problems with this device, and I believe it should be quite useful for phone and tablet users that want to keep their devices charged on trips.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DstBstSN Simple but useful
After having a bad experience with a competitors product I decided to give this little guy a shot. It seems to have better feel and build quality than previous USB chargers I've used. So far it has charged my GS4 just fine and worked well with a several other mobile and music devices from friends and family riding along. The purple glow is a useful feature for finding the port at night however I can't say purple is my favorite color, so I'm just being nit-picky at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ezdrive Product worked for my iPhone 5.0(s).
Used it on a 3,000 mile road trip last month. Worked fabulously. Has a low profile and pleasant blue LED glow. The right side charges faster as it is 2.1 amp and the Left USB is 1.0 amp. You can charge an iPhone and iPad at the same time. Great for topping off the battery on those long road trips or just while you're out and about and need that extra juice for making calls or texting. I recommend this product over those offered at Best Buy and Radio Shack both for the ability to charge 2 devices and the amp rating that makes it possible faster. I saw no alternative at either shop that filled the bill while shopping for this piece of tech.

You will not be disappointed with this charger.You will notice the difference in the speed at which this will charge your phone and so far the quality build is holding up but I only have owned this device for about a month so we'll see how stands up for the next year or so.In the meantime I got this for my wife and I'm definitely getting one for me.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by coach300 Compact, versatile, useful.
Two separate USB ports allow charging both an iPad Air (the higher wattage) as well as its Bluetooth keyboard simultaneously.
