This review is from: Big Game Eyecon Deluxe Camera Mounting kit TVA101
Pros: Hold's a bulky Moultrie D-55 IR camera. Made of tough, powder-coated metal. Goes in the ground easily. Can be stuck just about anywhere.
Cons: The adjustment knobs that let the mount tilt and the pole extend don't hold terribly tight - I have sometimes checked my camera only to find that the camera is pointing down at the ground. And the triangular end of the pole doesn't do the greatest job of holding the whole affair in place - in a storm or soggy ground it might tip over. Matte black finish stands out in green summertime foliage.
Other Thoughts: It serves its purpose well enough. I was able to mount my Moultrie using nylon straps. I put camouflage duct tape on the pole to mask the black (I'm using the camera for property surveillance). I recommend this mount for the older, bulkier cameras - the mounting surface is overkill for the newer, smaller cameras.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The 2.1 amp outlet registers between 1.5-1.9 amps with my S4's battery current app. The LED isn't as annoying as some similar units I've seen. It barely sticks out of my 12v outlet, which is good because I use a bank of 4 outlets (my car being an older model that hides the outlet in a hidden ashtray) and they're mounted in such a way that bulky chargers interfere with the cupholders. The supplied cable is stout and long enough for me to use the phone while plugged in. Snug fit means no random loss of charge or corrosion or accidental removal.
Cons: If you switch cars a lot, the nearly flush-fitting design and aforementioned snug fit of the charger might prove annoying to dig out of your 12v outlet. Not an issue for me, so no problems here.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this charger both for my Kindle Fire and for my Galaxy S4. Most of these kinds of chargers either don't fit flush, feel very flimsy, don't put out near the amps that they claim, or come with flimsy cables that provide too much resistance for charging (or come with no cables at all). I was pleasantly surprised with this charger as it was exactly what I wanted at a reasonable price. I wish I'd purchased this charger a long time ago instead of my last couple of shoddy overpriced ones.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GTMax 2 Port USB Car Charger Vehicle Power Adapter - Black (2000mA)
Pros: It's very small. Cheap
Cons: 2.1 amp port didn't put out anywhere near that current. More like .9 amps initially. Over time this became about .46 amps - not enough to charge my Galaxy S4 when turned on. Tried different cords and tested with different 12 volt outlets and the results were the same. the 1 amp port was about the same in output. I bought a name brand charger for slightly more (something I rarely do as name brands often mean nothing for electronics like these) and it put out a hearty 1.5-1.9 amps.
Other Thoughts: It would probably charge a non smartphone but high-end power hungry phone users need not apply.READ FULL REVIEW
