Product Description

This adaptor will allow you to charge your Apple, Android or other smartphone or tablet at high speed from any high power USB socket, even if the charger was not originally designed for your device. Simply plug your USB cable into one end, and the other end into a USB socket. It works on the same principle as our best selling Fast Charge Micro USB and Fast Charge Apple Cables, but this handy little adaptor allows you to use any good quality USB cable. If you've bought a powerful car or mains USB charger but find your device charges slowly, this adaptor will most likely solve the problem.  It will also dramatically improve charging speed from computer, TV and games console USB sockets.

  • Puts your device into fast charge mode - allows you to charge at high speed from a computer USB socket or other USB charger even if it was not originally designed for your device. Most Android and Apple products will charge at double the speed of normal computer USB charging. Use a USB socket which can output at least 1A for best results, most computers are capable of this but avoid USB hubs and budget USB chargers.
  • Blocks data transfer - your device will not go into 'data transfer' mode if connected to a computer, so you can use a computer just like a mains charger. This also prevents data hacking and any risk of viruses being loaded onto your device when charging from an unknown/public usb socket.
  • Use a high quality USB cable for fastest charging - Use the original cable supplied with your device or a high quality replacement. Cheap / long cables will have higher resistance, which may result in slightly slower charging.
  • Allows charging - Devices such as Blackberry smartphones, the Sony PS Vita and Asus Transformer T100  do not charge at all from many USB chargers, this adaptor fixes that.
 
 

Two versions available

  • Apple - This adaptor follows the Apple 2.4A charging spec. All models of Apple iPhones and iPads can charge at upto 2.4A. Most micro usb devices will charge at 0.5A or 1A.
  • SmartCharge - This uses PortaPow's new SmartCharge chip, which will  detect which type of device is connected and automatically switch between Universal, Apple and Samsung specifications, allowing you to always get the fastest charging speed supported by your device and the USB socket. This version is recommended for most uses. Samsung Galaxy Tab / Note models which use a wider shape connector are compatible. The Asus Transform T100 and iPod Classic / Nano models are not compatible however.
 
 
A few phones use the 'Qualcomm Quick Charge' (QQC) spec which uses a higher voltage mains charger for even faster charging. This adaptor will not convert a normal USB socket into a Qualcomm charger. Search the internet for 'Qualcomm Quick Charge' to see if your device is affected. QQC is also known as 'adaptive fast charge' 'turbocharge' and other terms.
 
We also offer a power monitor with built in SmartCharge technology, click here to view.

  1. Datablock FTW

    Posted by Alan on 7th Jun 2016

    I bought this mainly to stop being annoyed with dialog boxes when I plug my iPhone into my work computer for charging (and also good for charging from random USB ports, like on airplanes, where you SHOULD NOT be asked to share your photos etc but often do get asked).

    It works perfectly for this. I have not had occasion to try the smartcharge features yet.

  2. Just what I needed ...

    Works exactly as described. Fast shipping to USA too . completely satisfied with the transaction. Thank you.

  3. Just Works

    Posted by Ran Kleyman on 28th Mar 2016

    Used it to speed up my Lumia 925 charging time in car.
    Couldn't drive with GPS turned on for over two hours, the battery was draining faster than charging.
    With this adapter charging time reduced by the half.
    Just works as advertised.
    Very pleased with the purchase.

  4. Works perfectly

    I got it to speed up charging from my computer. Charging amperage jumped from under 400 mA to 1000 mA instantly to my Android phone. It really does work!

  5. It really works!

    Posted by Pablo on 6th Mar 2016

    It really does work! My iphone now charges mych faster when connected to a PC. And with this I won't get hacked when travelling!

  6. Did not add value, maybe because I did not need it

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Feb 2016

    I did not bring me anything. Maybe I did not need it, because the speed of charging did not improve. It did not help over charging my Windows Phone when I used a USB-C cable together with this USB adapter.

  7. Great Little Adaptor

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Dec 2015

    This performs exactly as advertised - charges your iPhone a lot faster than without! Brilliant little bit of kit

  8. Fast charge and data block

    Posted by Unknown on 11th Oct 2015

    For reasons that are not obvious, seems to charge devices faster than connecting straight to laptop.

    My company laptop automatically encrypts USB memory whenever it's connected. With this, I can charge and avoid getting my phone encrypted.
