ORICO UTL-U2-BK USB 2.0 to 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN Network Adapter [ASIX AX88772 Chipset, USB to RJ45]
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: As soon as I attached it, Windows 7 (Pro) loaded the correct driver without the need for the included disk. Once installed I disable my laptop's wifi. Then I used it to transfer a 1.72 GB iso file from my server which it did in 142 seconds and I do believe that equates to a full 100 mbs.

Cons: It's not 1000 mbs (nor is the USB port).

Other Thoughts: It never ceases to amaze me just how versatile USB ports are.

World First Smart Charger ORICO DCP-5U 5 Port Super Charger with 5V7.2Amps Power for iPad iPhone Samsung Tablet Surface and Cell Phone
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I have a couple USB volt-amp meters, and I'm confident that this mobile charger can do what I need. For testing, I drained my devices to about 20% charge and first charged them with the manufacturers' specific chargers. So for example, both the Nook HD and Nexus tablets drew about 1.8 amps. The DCP-5U charged each @ 1.8 amps using the "Super" ports, and when I tried to charge both at the same time, the charged in the 1.6 - 1.7 amp range. My phones (old Samsung's) and 4 Cameras all required 0.7 amps or less and charged in any of the 5 ports.

Cons: Not really a con but . . . The small 5-port station box gets a warm on the bottom when I charged more than 2 devices so I may have to re-think keeping it in a closed console in the truck.

Other Thoughts: (1) Before buying a multi-port USB charger, you should read the small print on each of your device chargers. If one specifies 5V @ 1000 ma (milli-amp) or less, the universal charge ports will do. If your phone or tablet requires more, be careful to use the "Super" charging ports.
(2) Orico could make one improvement: Integrate the 36 watt power supply and USB charger into one box. It would eliminate the "fragile" cable between the power brick (about 1/2 the size of a laptop power supply) and the charging station.

2 PCS Mini USB Power Current and Voltage Tester Portable Mini USB Current Voltage Mobile Power Bank Tester Detector
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I've been testing several USB charging hubs hoping to find one for the house and truck (I have 120V in it) that can charge all our tablets ad phones. Thanks to this current & voltage meter I know which hubs are best suited for what we have. Now to locate extra charging cables!

Cons: Not a ding, but I would trade it in on a model that displays voltage and current simultaneously or could be user controlled as to what is displayed - either voltage or current.

Other Thoughts: Knowing that your PC is designed to deliver up to 0.5 amps on its USB 2.0 port hubs and a full 1.0 amps on a USB 3.0 port hub, I've began labeling devices (like external 2-1/2" HD drives) by their current draw. Even some of my flash drive draw twice as much current as others. And I beginning to understand why my PC can re-boot itself when I plug too much into one port-hub.
