Multi-port USB AC adapter recommendations?
+1 received by user: 21
I'm after a couple of compact multi-port USB AC adapters, and I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations... at the moment, I've found this which will be fine, but happy if someone knows of something better!
(I kinda like that one because if I find a standard figure-8 ac cable, I can have it up on the coffee table, and doesn't have to be poking out of the power strip in the floor)

Have that one. Is crap.
4 ports share one current limited powersupply so its no better than sticking a hub on a 10 watt adapter.
Also it seems to have the resistors set up as a 10w on 2 ports and a 5w on the other 2 so an ipad and something else pulls it into constant current mode which apple devices don't cope well with.
