Product Review: Bolse 3.1A 15W Dual USB Port High Output Wall/Travel/AC Charger
This wall charger was received with great expectations. My cellphone normally takes 4 hours to charge using the stock charger. I was surprised by the rating of the charger, which is actually 5V/3100mA splitted in 2 slots. The top slot is rated at 2.1A and the lower one is rated ad 1.0A. the top one can be used to charge a tablet or as a “quick-charge” for any smartphone. The lower port can be used as a replacement to a stock charger due to the rating (1A). As a design plus, it has contacts that can be hidden once finished charging.
Now, speaking of performance I was able to charge my Nexus 4 smartphone in 2 hours and 32 minutes. Using the stock charger it normally takes 4 hours and 14 minutes, as you can see on a picture I added to the product page. This time was accomplished by using the upper port (2.1A), while at the same time charging a Tom Tom GPS unit using the lower port (1A).
Wraping up, the upper port is rated 0.1A higher than the stock Galaxy Tab 2 charger which I also own (2.1A vs 2.0). I was not able to notice an extreme difference in charging time, but this Bolse unit adds the flexibility to charge my Galaxy Tab at the same time with another equipment.
