"Apple Is Definitely The King Of Technology Products"

I most recently bought another iPad off eBay due to the amount of use we get out of them. Unfortunately the sale didn't include a charger which i felt i would need to buy. My local Apple store is only 10 minutes down the road so that was easy for me to access and i could guarantee i would come back with a charger which would be great for the iPad. I went to the store and the assistant pointed me towards this charger. Not only was it a USB charger for Apple but you could also plug in any USB to charger other technology products. I knew this would be great for me as i could plug in anything and it prevented my having loads of chargers around. In the end i bought this charger and have not been let down by it yet. I have put my review into sections to make it easier to read.

Why Is It Called A USB Charger?

This charger is called a USB charger because it is a usual plug which can be placed in a English socket, and then in the back of the plug there is a slot for a USB lead. Apple did originally make this to be used with Apple USB leads, but you can also put in any lead you want to. I often use this plug for my blackberry by just plugging in the Blackberry USB and charging it from this. MP3 players, iPods, and other phones can be charged from this charger which is what makes it great.If you have any USB which can be plugged into a device, you can use this plug for a charger!


This plug is the original colour of Apple, the bright white. The plug has the three rods as of all English plugs which can then be plugged in. The plug is rather curved and not square which gives it a nice feel, and it look professional. The plug isn't to chunky or heavy which makes it great to take on holiday or just to place in or bag if you are off out. The plug is shiny and sleek which makes it look great when it is plugged in, and therefore dirt can also be removed from it easily. The plugs design is really good, and i like the way it looks so therefore i don't think it could be any better.

How Much Is This Charger?

Personally i bought this charger from the Apple store a couple of weeks back and i did pay quite a large price of £24.99 but due to the massive saving i got on the iPad i didn't really think when buying it. Now this charger can also be purchased from Amazon for around £10 which is a great value for money. The charger can be most famously bought from the Apple store which is the main place to buy any Apple products. However this charger can also be bought from PCWorld, Comet, and also Amazon or eBay but the prices of these two sites will range. Despite quite high prices for the charger i feel that it is definitely worth it, and i would definitely buy on again.


This charger which is made by Apple is very durable. The charger can be just thrown in to your bag, or a drawer once you have finished with it. The charger has been dropped on the floor once or twice and no damage has took place. The charger is sleek and shiny so dirt comes of the charger easily. The durability of the charger is fantastic and i dont think it could be any better.

What Have I Charged Through This Charger?
  • Apple Products - iPad, iPhone and iPod ( Through Apple USB)
  • Blackberry - (Through Blackberry USB)
  • Samsung MP3 - (Through Samsung USB)
  • Kodak Camera - (Through Kodak USB)

What Are The Down Sides To This Charger?

Other than the price of the charger (£9.99-£24.99) i dont feel there are any down sides to the charger. The Charger is durable, sleek, looks goods, and is very versatile. This is definitely the most used charger in my house due to the range of products it can be used with. I Definitely wouldn't swap this charger or replace it for a long time.


Overall i would definitely recommend purchasing this product. The charger is very light-weight which means that it can be carried around easily, and makes it great to take on holiday with you. The charger can be used with thousands of products which prevents you having lots of chargers. It does the job you want it to, and makes charging products easy. If i had the choice i would definitely buy another one of these again.
