Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by snowdaisy does not work with 2 devices
All looked great until we tried to use it! Once we plugged in 2 devices at the same time, the devices would continue to flash on and off. What's the point of having 2 USB chargers on the same plate if you can't use them?

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GeoffM Idea is good, but...
This device works as described. I was excited to charge my iPad and iPhone at the same time. I plugged in the device, then plugged in my 2 USB cords and connected them. The iPad started charging and then my iPhone started beeping. It was charging, then not, charging, then not - non-stop. I read the package to see that 2 phones or 1 tablet can charge at 1 time, but not a tablet AND a phone. I unplugged one of my devices at a time and they charged fine separately, just not at the same time. Unfortunately, this is going back to the store. Call me spoiled...

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MinnesotaJoe Buzzes, can't charge iPad and other device simultaneously
When not actively charging a device, this charger makes a quiet buzzing sound. If there is not a device plugged in or if a plugged in device is fully charged, the sound begins. It is distracting in a quiet room and makes one wonder how much 'vampire power' is it consuming. I would like to leave it plugged in all the time, as the design is unobtrusive, but due to these issues, I unplug it when not in use. Additionally, it lacks the ability to charge both a high drain device, like an iPad, and a regular device at the same time. One of the devices will constantly switch between charging and thinking that it is unplugged. Despite these issues, I continue to use it, but only so I can keep my other charger in my travel bag. If I had to do it again, I would look into permanent installing an outlet with USB charging or find a similarly designed charger with a higher amperage rating and no buzzing sound.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie Works, but quality concerns, impractical
This charger emits a loud high frequency sound when it doesn't have a USB device plugged in. To avoid unused power load and noise, it shouldn't be left plugged in, but the design seems to encourage that. A high quality USB charger takes up less room, and doesn't do this.
