iPevo has released the USB SuperCharger. It will quickly charge up to four iPads at the same time using four USB 2.1 amp charge ports, and it takes up very little room. It will also charge other USB devices as needed.
USB Supercharger in use
The USB SuperCharger has an output of 5 volts with four 2.1 amp ports. It measures 4.7 x 2.4 x 1.4-in (129 x 60 x 35 mm). The ports are lined up on the top of the device, offering easy access. And for those for whom it matters, it is a neat and tidy presentation when in use. With an MSRP of US$59.00 it is also a reasonable expenditure compared to other devices I have seen that charge multiple iPads at once and retail in the $100 dollar range.
Using The Product
This product is easy to use and it takes up a very little space. The availability of the four ports on the top of the device make them easy to access and even young children can utilize the ports - in an educatiomal setting (see below). It offers a convenient method for charging items in conference rooms, classrooms, or any other location where there is ample table space. It can also be placed in locked cabinets or drawers when not in use. As is evident in the following image, it can be used while individuals are actually working with their devices.
Supercharger in use in classroom setting
For testing purposes I used an iPad Air, an iPad 3, an iPad 1, and an iPhone 5s. I let each run down to ten percent power and then charged all of them at once using the SuperCharger. Each one charged at the same rate as when connected individually to a USB port plugged into a wall outlet.
Do I Recommend It?
I do. It works well, is easy to use, is reasonably priced, and has a small footprint. It offers a convenient option for charging up to four iPads at the same time and in many work, school, and family settings, more than one iPad is the norm, not the exception.
