iclever4large
The iClever BoostCube 4-port is a smart 40W/8A USB wall charger whose claim to fame is that it can up charge to four USB devices simultaneously at full power from a single plug. At 2.45” x 2.45” x 1.12” it has a small and sleek form factor with a nice quality finish that’s about the same width and about 1/2” bigger than an iPad charger but smaller than a MacBook AC charging block.

iClever BoostCube features SmartID. This means it can recognize the type of device plugged into it and deliver up to the full 2A per plug and charge the likes of the iPad Pro, iPhone 6S Plus, Samsung Galaxy S7, LG G5 and others at the same rate as their original chargers but up to four at a time.

superCUBE

While some people like to carry around extra batteries or the factory chargers that came with their devices, others just want something small, compact and universal. And Scosche has just the gadget for that. No, in fact, they have two – the superCUBE and superCUBE flip – and they’re 40% smaller than others out there.

Scosche superCUBE is a 12-watt wall adapter for USB powered devices that the company claims is the smallest in its class. It features a single standard USB port, which has a 5V output at 2.4A. So not only will it fast charge most USB powered devices like the iPhone 5S, Samsung Galaxy and most cameras, it also has enough power to charge larger, more power-hungry tablets like the iPad Air.   Read more…AT CANOE TECH BLOG

Kanex  DoubleUp

While it sounds like the name of an R. Kelly album and a famous chewing gum,DoubleUp by Kanex is a dual USB charger for iPad, iPhone, and iPod.

DoubleUp has a simple design and is fairly easy to use.  The sleek and almost oval shaped design features a foldaway plug so it’s easy to store away when traveling.
