From the photo, these appear to be similar in size to the Apple iPhone charger (only 1 Amp.) They are not. They are about 50% larger. This is OK as they are still relatively compact, but in a power strip you won't be able to get them in adjacent outlets. I tested this in a wall outlets and because wall outlets are spaced further apart than on a power strip, you can just get two of these in to the top and bottom outlet if you flip one over upside down. This shouldn't be a problem if you're plugging them in to a wall, but I only mention this because I imagined these being a little smaller than they actually are.
The Apple iPad charger is a larger rectangular brick that is designed to stick out more but not obscure adjacent outlet plugs which is a more efficient design. I'm not sure what Energizer was going for with design, but it seems like form took priority over function.
The plug prongs fold in for travel which is a nice feature.
I tested this charge with a genuine Apple USB to 30-pin cable on an iPad 2 and found that I could only draw 1.43 amps (this is a 2.1 amp adapter.) Running the same test with the genuine Apple 10 watt (2.1 amp) that was included with the iPad 2, I pull 1.87 amps. Therefore the iPad 2 is still able to rapid charge but it does not perform quite as well as Apple's or other 10 watt adapters. Not bad, but if it performs about 10% worse, why get it?
The only adapter I've found that actually beats Apple's 10 watt adapter is PowerGen Dual USB 3.1A 15w Travel Wall Charger with Swivel plug for Apple iPad 2, New iPad 3, iPhone 5 4s 4 3 3Gs, Amazon Kindle Fire HD DX KeyBoard, Samsung Galaxy Tab (USB Cable NOT included) - BLACK which is 15 watts, not 10 watts. With the powergen 15 watt the iPad 2 pulled a maximum of 1.96 amps (my USB tester has a 2 amp limit so it's possible it pulls more if the iPad 2 will allow it.) Note I did not test the Apple 12 watt adapter and I did not test the iPad 3.
Testing with the iPhone 4S:
The iPhone performs identically to this one as it does with any and all other 5 watt and 10 watt adapters (I've tested 14.) The iPhone will draw a maximum of 1.03 amps (5 watts) regardless if it's connected to a 5 watt, 10 watt, or 15 watt adapter. So it's performance is identical on an iPhone.
At the time I originally bought this and wrote the review, there weren't many good alternatives out there and it cost less than Apple's chargers, but Apple's 12 watt adapter is only $19. I would just buy the real thing with Apple or get the powergen 15 watt dual port (note the 2nd port on the powergen 15 watt will only deliver 2.5 watts to Apple iPhones and iPads so consider it single-port adapter for all intents and purposes.)
Or get something significantly cheaper, but expect the performance to be slightly worse (5%-10% worse than apple's genuine.)
I bought this for about half the price of the official Apple iPad charger, and it works great. If I were reviewing only the adapter, I'd give it five stars. But the cable that comes with it is of poor quality, and began to come apart after less than a month of use.
Overall, a good charger for my iPad, but it required a replacement cable.
The device does what it says, and doesn't get hot like the Verizon wall charger I originally got as an extra charging cord. I just wish the cord was twice as long. I'm going to use the longer cord that came with the verizon charger, and put the cord from this one into the car I think.
Supply a longer cord nextime!
