this is kinda small, ain't it?

looks like it'd be hard to remove from the power port in your car after you put it in

I gather this won't be right for my HP TouchPad?

On an Android device, you'll want to use a charging cable (or make one) with the data pins shorted. Otherwise, it'll think it's a normal USB connection rather than AC and won't take advantage of the 2.1A available. If the phone thinks it's connected via USB, it'll only pull .5A

I'm not sure of this but my TouchPad AC adapter is 2.0 amps - it would seem to be viable.

If it were 10A, to work with my iPad, I'd buy a handful. It would never leave my cig lighter hole. But alas ... insufficient amps!

*Edit: I stand corrected! (thank you) It will work! Yay! In for three!!!

I bought a two-port adapter from Amazon for only a couple bucks more than this item. I'm able to charge both my ipad and my Android phone while driving.

To be clear, this will be true for any non-Apple device. Most of these companies build their adapters to target Apple products. Any non-Apple product will only charge at 0.5 Amps, unless you modify it.

How do you short the data pins?

It has a metal bracket that folds up to pull it out. Check the pictures on amazon.

If it tried to pull that much power it would blow the fuse in your car. Outlets are generally on 15W fuses. You would need a 50W fuse - which doesn't exist. I think the biggest non-engine fuses are 30W.

Your ipad is 10w at 5v (2 amps). This is perfect for it.

Thanks, I decided to give it a try, since I already have free shipping for the day. For 6 bucks, what the heck?

They ship straight from Hong Kong. No super-saver, just free shipping. There are all kinds available. 0.5A, 1A, 1.8A.. single or dual port. When I ordered it took about 10 days to arrive (through the mail).

And to be even more clear (I cannot attest to android comments) iPhones will only draw 5w max. It's limited within the phone, regardless of what the charger can safely deliver. And before someone else says it (because they always do), NO, your iphone is not charging faster on an ipad or any other 10w charger. It simply will not draw more than 5w.

Whether it charges an iPhone faster or at the same rate as a 5W plug, it's nice to be able to use the same plug for the iPad I'm sure I will someday buy...

I can't find the one I ordered, there are hundreds of them. I received the 2A version with 1 plug.

Absolutely. This is a good deal for a 10w adapter in my opinion. I'm in for one, and wish I bought two.
