Buffalo 4-Port High-Power USB Charger

This nice little gadget is one of those little stuff I got from my recent trip to Japan. It’s a 4-port high-power USB charger (apparently Buffalo is a huge brand in Japan and always getting front row placement in the mall shelves).

I always bring a lot of devices with me when I travel and along with them, a bunch of chargers as well — one for the HD7, one for the iPhone 4 & the iPad, one for the Huawei E5 and the Energizer/Mili portable battery.

To make things more complicated, some hotel rooms I stay have very limited power outlets (usually just one extra socket) so to be able to split one power socket into 4 USB charging ports is a huge blessing.

The Energizer/Mili portable battery also comes with a charging cable with switchable ports for the iPhone, mini USB, micro USB and the one for most Nokia handsets. Now all I bring with me is the Buffalo 4-port charger and the Mili portable battery set and I can practically charge multiple (up to 4) devices all at the same time.

What’s better is that one of the ports in the charger is specific for the iPad (since it requires higher power/wattage rating, I think it’s 10W instead of the usual 5W for the iPhone).

I forgot how much I got this one for but I think it’s in the Php1k range. Haven’t seen something similar being sold locally but I can double-check with the distributor and ask them how much.

  12. I am using a similar capdase one with 4 USB ports as well but I don’t think it can charge the iPad! I hope they will sell this here! It definitely looks more reliable than the Capdase! Thanks!

    Yuga, just to clarify… The voltage output of a usb port is more or less always 5 volts… It is the wattage that varies.. An ipad needs at least 10 watts of power to charge.

  14. Abe, were you able to use this na simultaneously naka plug iphone, ipad, HD7 and the Huwaei na router? I have one similar to this but made by Capdase na if use all four USB ports for charging, hindi na gumagana. Thanks!
