Our take on the Scosche USB Home/Car Charger Kit

by Dominic Devito

Charge your iPod®, iPhone®, or other USB device anywhere — at home or on the go — with this Scosche charger kit. Compatible with most USB devices, the kit includes a home power adapter with one USB port, plus a DC power adapter with a pair of USB ports for charging two devices at once in the car.

Plug your device's USB cable into the adapter, and then plug the adapter into a power source, either your car's power port or a wall outlet. Keep the kit handy when you're traveling, so you can power up wherever you go. Warranty: 1 year.

Ad is somewhat misleading

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This purchase includes two charger units, one is wall-powered and one is Automobile DC-powered. When I chose it I understood that each unit had two USB output ports. That was wrong as the wall charger has only one, while the DC charger has two outputs. Since I bought the unit primarily as a travel device I was counting on the dual output from the wall charger more that the DC charger. I will continue to use the unit, but believe the ad description could be more specific.
The two units works as advertised and output is good enough to charge an iPhone 4 or iPad 2.
