Perfect USB Charger for Multiple Devices at the Same Time Review by Christie
Product(s) used to test – 2 Iphone 5
I really enjoyed testing this USB charger because it has 2 USB ports and only takes up one car charger port! My fiancée and I are constantly in the car together during weekend family outings and the worst thing is having to share the car charger or having to have 2 separate car chargers taking up 2 different car charger ports. God forbid we take a long road trip where my daughter needs a car charger port for her Nintendo DS or her portable DVD player. Usually that results in all of us trading off on time to plug in car chargers for our devices. This charger definitely makes it easy to have 2 people only use 1 car charger port and still have the 2nd car charger port totally free. No scheduling time to charge devices now! I also love that the charger lights up blue to let you know that it is connected properly to the car charging port. I also like that because it’s a USB charger you can use it with multiple devices. As long as you can get a USB charging wire that fits your device it will charge your device regardless of brand. Also it charges faster than most standard USB chargers. My phone was at 10% when I got in the car and within 45 minutes my phone was completely charged showing 100% battery! I was really impressed with the charging time. This would be great for someone who has a car with only 1 car charging port and multiple phones/devices or It would be great for a family with multiple children and multiple devices with not enough car charger ports! There wasn’t one negative thing I could find about this charger. (Posted on 10/4/14)
Great for charging two smart phones or a tablet in the car. 4 out of 5. Review by Mike
The headline here is the price – two decent quality care chargers for a bargain price. As a two-car family, I am always on the lookout for car chargers, particularly as I travel a lot and I always like to have one in my bag.

Having owned half-a-dozen car chargers, I now only buy New Trent – they are high-quality, inexpensive, and stylish. The Duo Rapiduo Plus is no exception. Both units are the same, apart from the colour, and fit snugly into the socket.

It’s fair to say that they aren’t the most subtle of items, the length of the charger means that it stands well proud of the socket, but the design is smooth and simple and I think it works!

I am able to charge two smartphones, both are iPhones, at the same time or one iPad. I don’t know how long it would take for a full charge as it makes more sense for me to charge my devices at home, but using this device, all charge quickly and without issue.

I have scored this as 4 out of 5. An extra star could be gained if the New Trent could make this half the length, but if this was done, I suspect the price would go up. What makes this a great product is its simple design, solid functionality, and a fantastic low price.

Good device but not stand-out Review by Robert
I purchased this device several months ago and have found it quite useful, but not particularly superior to other similarly priced car chargers. I have yet to notice a drop in power output when using both outlets at the same time, so that does recommend it over single-output chargers, and the fact that you receive two of the devices is nice, with the second serving as either a backup or, for those who are lucky and have multiple ports in their car, an additional place to plug in USB devices.

Perfect for Road Trips Review by JesseL
This little guy was perfect for a road trip we took a few weeks back. Me and my wife were able to charge our iPhone 5s and iPads with this device. Excellent use for car travel. (Posted on 5/19/14)
Best USB Car Charger I've used Review by Phil
This is by far and away the best usb car charger I've used! For the first
time, my nexus 7 (2012) tablet was able to play ingress and ACTUALLY CHARGE
instead of just drain slower. This was even with having the second port in
use charging my nexus 5. Blue LED on the charger makes it easy to tell
that it is still plugged in without being too distracting at night. This
device gets a 5 star rating from me for performance. (Posted on 5/17/14)
Awesome charger! Review by Kaleohone
The first thing I liked about this charger is the sleek and smooth look it has and the white color. Also the uni-body housing on this product adds to the aesthetics of the device. The light on the charger is a very mellow and dim blue light, which is something I consider for car chargers. My other chargers have lights that are too bright, which can be distracting at times. The charger is very sturdy and holds thecords in place, making it a bit difficult to remove the charging cables with ease. But I do like this because; it will not slip out and stop charging when you hit a bump or when off-road. Will purchase again! (Posted on 5/17/14)
Fast, Easy Charge 2 Cell Phones at Same Time Review by DesertCat
The New Trent Rapiduo Plus 20W USB car charger NT81T is perfect for me since we only have one charger port in our 2005 Suburu Impreza WRX and right now my primary cell is a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and my husband's is a Apple iPhone 4S - this charger has one Apple port and one Samsung port. These are both aging phones with batteries that don't quite last through the day without needing a charge boost, so this item will be super helpful on car trips, especially long day trips and vacations, so we can both have fully charged phones. I have had a lot of problems previously with mobile phone car chargers that could not maintain a steady charge (they would go off and on every couple of seconds) or mysteriously did not work at all. It was not clear to me whether it was the charger or the car's port that was causing the issue. But the charging works fine on this New Trent charger and it fits easily into the car's port. Since the charger is small and skinny, it doesn't block off anything nearby. It's charges very rapidly whether one or two devices are plugged in (about 2-3 minutes per battery % on my Note 2 mobile). This rapid charging is great when you need to get some life into your battery between relatively short destinations.

However, I am concerned about how difficult it is to get my USB cables in and out of the charger, I really had to force the USBs in hard, and wriggle them out, due to how tight the slots are, and I am worried about damaging the charger and my cable wires. This was not an issue at all on the New Trent dual USB wall charger and the USB slots are just as close together. Therefore, I can only give the New Trent Rapiduo Car Charger a 4/5 rating.

It's a bit confusing that this item is referred to as a "twin-pack" (on Amazon) and "chargers", but I only received one charger (albeit with two USB slots). Since I got this item at discount for review, I don't know whether it's normally two chargers you receive, but if it's not, then this item needs to be re-worded on Amazon and anywhere else this language is used. (Posted on 5/16/14)
It's okay Review by Leanne
I wasn't as impressed with this charger as I thought I would be. The blue
light indicating that the charger is functioning doesn't light up, even
though the device(s) are charging. I drive a compact car, and the length
and size of the charger was just not a good fit in my car. It didn't fit
into one of the sockets securely and would wiggle out. In our family's
Tahoe, however, and in our truck, the length and size provided to be great
when the sockets for chargers are towards the bottom of the dash and closer
to the floorboards. The name is kind of misleading because it's called
"Rapiduo", but when compared with the generic dual-usb charger that I have,
it's not really any faster--in fact, it actually seems a little slower.
But, for the long trips in the trucks, it works. (Posted on 5/16/14)
awesome car charger Review by Robert
I've recently been using the New Trent NT81T Rapiduo Plus Dual 2.1A USB Port Car Charger. My experience has been excellent as it allows me to charge multiple devices in my car at once. The 2.1A output lets me charge my iPad3 and Nexus 10 tablets at the same time. It is also very convenient to be able to quickly charge the phones or tablets of multiple passengers during long car rides. The charger looks sleek which is a bonus. I recommend this product to everyone with a car and a phone or tablet. (Posted on 5/10/14)
Works as intended Review by Alex
The Car Charger works great, and seems like it works as intended. I love the design of the charger, and the charger itself charges my iPhone 5S and iPad 2 very quickly.The cord never came loose like some car chargers i've used before, so I rate this product a 5 out 5. (Posted on 5/10/14)
Great charger Review by Kim
I love the fact that I plugged my iPhone into this, drove for about 3 minutes, and my battery life literally had increased by 5%! As fast as batteries seem to run out nowadays, it's nice to have a reliable charger when I need it!

I am so glad it has 2 ports, too! I don' t have to worry about having enough outlets in my car to charge other devices!

Great compact design, and a great product! (Posted on 5/9/14)
Great car chargers with two full power usb ports Review by Kartik
Both car chargers performed great and charged my phone extremely fast, similar to a tablet charger. I have used both chargers with my iPhone 5S and a friend’s Nexus 5. It charges both devices quickly and at the same time. Not a complicated device but it comes in black and white and it does exactly what its supposed to very well. Also, I prefer the subtle look of these compared to the Y-shaped car chargers. (5/5) (Posted on 5/8/14)
great unit Review by ALEX
great multipurpose car charger. I use this to power my iphone/ipad along with ecig. low profile, and looks great in the car. seems pretty durable. highly recommended against more expensive alternatives. quick charge. (Posted on 5/8/14)
Nice charger, works with two devices Review by Brian
-The dual USB capability is a big plus. I’ve often found myself in situations on road trips with my wife or friends needing to charge more than one device at a time. Solves a big pain point from having to alternate devices.
-I like that both of the slots charge with the same voltage. I’ve seen this on other devices and find it confusing and a bit annoying.
-The glossy black design is appealing. It’s scratch resistant and goes with any interior vehicle design
-The carrying case is a nice addition

-I would prefer a shorter design for the charger. It’s quite long and doesn’t allow me to close the compartment in my car without removing it because it sticks out so far. (Posted on 5/7/14)
Another great New Trent product! Review by Micah
Another great purchase! This came with two car chargers which is awesome
for the price. Within those two charges are two USB outlets which makes it
convenient to charge multiple devices. The item fits easily and securely
into the cigarette lighter which is the problem with some cigarette lighter
adapters. They are clunky and require effort to insert or take out. That
was not the case with these charges. Also these charges came with an
indicator which was a blue light to display it was ready to provide a
charge. Lastly it charge the devices faster than most outlets or other
charging stations which was a huge plus. No issued with this product just
excellent all around! (Posted on 5/5/14)
Powerful and Stylish Review by Shop2Much
The bag is a very nice complement. It allows users to keep the charger and cable together nicely and easy to find in any storage compartment, even in my messy hand console. It was very odd to find Apple and Android markings on the side of the charger when both ports have the same power output. However, it was extremely obvious why they are there. Charging a Samsung Note II and an Apple iPhone 5 in the opposite ports was a very slow charge. When switching the products to match the labeled ports, charging was exponentially faster. It's great to optimize for performance but it would be nice to have a note stating effects warning users and maybe even an explanation of why. It would also be nice to recommend which port would be better for GPS and other devices, how the optimization would affect charging those products, and recommendations for when users have two Android or Apple devices. It works well for users traveling in a vehicle or out camping. (Posted on 5/5/14)
Completely Satisfied Review by Jeff
Great overall dual USB car charger! The NT81T is slim, portable, and was made well. The blue LED indicator light on the charger is very useful when plugging in your device in the dark. The charger is light-weight and easily stored in the car. I have charged my iPhone 5s and my Wife’s iPhone 5c, at the same time, charging quickly and without issues. The convenience of having 2 ports to charge devices simultaneously is a huge bonus. I’ve also charged my iPad and iPhone in the car simultaneously and works as good as plugging it into a wall outlet.
Would highly recommend and completely satisfied. (Posted on 5/5/14)
Very good, versatile charger Review by Joe
This is a very good charger. It fits well and forms a secure connection in the socket of my Toyota Highlander Hybrid. The charger works very well with my Samsung S4 active. Charge time is as good as an AC charger. The blue power indicator is a good feature. I rate this charger a 5. (Posted on 5/4/14)
Great for travel! Review by Rob
Besides a great look when you get the package with its own bag for you to store in, this product is really good! It was able to charge my iPad while I was driving around! If it is able to charge my iPad then it is definitely able to work with your phone!

The ports are tight so you don't have to worry about the cords falling out while you are driving around. The size of the device is rather small so it doesn't take up a bunch of room. The model is also sleek so it can fit into your charger even if it's in the bottom of say a cup holder in your car. (Posted on 5/3/14)
Nice Charger Review by Bob
NT81T - I like this 2.1 amp charger.It has two ports available but one
is for Apple and one is for Android.They are clearly labeled which one
is which. I wish that you could use either port for either product. I
imagine it has something to do with the overcharge protection but I
cannot say for sure. Both ports are rated at 2.1 amps for a total of
20W. The charger is strong enough to quickly charge my phone even when I
have the GPS on. My previous charger barely kept up while I was running
the GPS. The adapter is capable of charging both my iPad and my Galaxy
S3 phone at the same time. Another nice thing about the charger is that
there is a little light on the front that illuminates when it is plugged
in. This is a nice feature just so you know that it is working. (Posted on 5/2/14)
a better charger then what you have now Review by stuart
The New Trent Dual Rapiduo Plus USB car charger (NT81T) is a generational
improvement over the last car charger I purchased from you. The size is
perfect for my car and I love that it comes in two colors. The Black blends
in the the White can't be missed.
The best thing about the Dual Charger is that both Charge at 2.1, this
means they can both charge IPads as well as phones and charge them faster
then the charger you have at home. This is the best feature if you have an
IPhone as the batteries discharge way to fast. Pop one of these in your car
and you do not really have to worry about losing the use of your
phone.Another great feature is they do not get hot if you are charging more
than one Item. Since I have two kids ages 10&11, This is the go to device
on long road trips to Disney. I put it in the middle with a long cord and
no fighting about who ran out of power in their IPods or tablets. If you do
not drive, get a NewTrent charger. (Posted on 5/1/14)
Love mine Review by Trisha
This is awesome, I love mine (and so does Hubby since it was a two pack). They are built well and durable. I like that they don’t sit flush when put in my car port so I can get it out. It is nice that it is lit up a bit for night time plugins. It charges phones very fast, and although we rarely charge tablets in the car I did have to put my work tablet in and it even charged that very fast in between job sites. It is really cool that I can charge two things at once, as we used that feature to charge both of our phones while traveling since my old car only has one port. Usually there is always one thing AI don’t like about a product no matter how small but with this none only a suggestion, can you add more colors? Aces on this product love it! (Posted on 5/1/14)
Two chargers in one package = very handy Review by Jay
Two chargers for the a multi-car family is great and very handy. Having two separate cars stocked with the correct accessories is always a challenge, its nice that NewTrent has made this much easier by providing a two charger pack at a very reasonable price. I keep one in each car so I’m always prepared to charge our iPhones.

Each charger (one white, one black) has dual usb charging ports. Both outlets charge at 2.1A which used to not be the case with these type of chargers. Most chargers that share this design only charge at 2.1A for a single outlet, if both are used one usually drops to 1A or sometimes both outlets drop to 1A. These NewTrent models don’t make you choose who’s phone or tablet get the extremely slow charge and allow for dual faster charging. The design of these units is simple, allowing easy access to both usb ports (bring your own usb cord of course).

I can’t recommend enough how quickly these provide a quick charge up for your phones and they even do a pretty good job of charging a tablet while on the go as well which is great for traveling. Especially if using an iPad or other tablet to keep the kiddos entertained which we do. I do not see the need to pay for an expensive in-car entertainment (dvd with screen) player that comes installed from the factory. Most car manufacturers charge a premium for this and an individual can buy several iPads, Kindles, etc. for the price of one of these units and keep them upgraded. Built-in units are with you for the life of your car unless you pay for a costly replacement. Going with the portable unit route makes great monetary sense and with NewTrent’s chargers, I can keep these units going for the entire trip.

The only negative thing I’ve noticed about these chargers is that getting the usb cord from your device into its usb slot is pretty tight and takes some force to get it in. While this may loosen up over time, I haven’t had the product long enough to notice this. This could be seen as an advantage too as the usb cord isn’t loose and won’t fall out while in use either.

I highly recommend getting a pack of these chargers, place one in each vehicle you own and always be prepared if your battery starts to get low (like all Apple, Android, etc products like to do when you need them the most.) (Posted on 4/30/14)
Another great car charger Review by Dustin Ranem
I use car chargers a lot, and so I have tried many different units. The 81T worked great for giving me an extra boost on the way home from work. I'm in the marketing/digital design field, so I use my phone a lot throughout the day. Having a solid car charger that is reliable/never fails is priceless. This model fits snug into the outlet, doesn't slowly slide out, and has an extra USB slot for when necessary. I give this plug a hearty 5 out of 5. I'm never let down by NewTrent chargers. (Posted on 4/30/14)
Great Charger!! Review by Jared
This charger has done a great job charging my phone on the go quickly. My only complaint is that it is slightly larger than my previous charger and sticks out a little farther in my car, the size could be a good thing or bad thing depending on the vehicle. Overall it is a great charger that I would highly recommend. (Posted on 4/30/14)
A very handy item Review by Marek
This solved a nagging problem. Although I had a cigarette lighter charger for my phone, charging the Nexus tablet in the car wasn't possible, until I got this item. (Posted on 4/29/14)
Solid Charger Review by Tim
This charger had no issues powering any of the devices I connected. The labeling is a bit strange on the back side of the unit, indicating one charger is for Samsung devices and the other for Apple devices. Both interfaces seemed to work fine for charging my iPhone 5S.

The unit is a little long, so it sticks out a bit more than the other new trent NT85T, so if you want a shorter profile, check out the NT85T instead. (Posted on 4/29/14)
Great car charger for any device Review by Kayne
I love the power this little guy puts out. It charges my Nexus 7 tablet and my Galaxy S4 at the same time very quickly. It does depend on which USB cable you use. I tested the charger with a cable from Monoprice which is a data/charging cable. It does not charge as fast because the cable itself is not wired to get the full power from the charger. I also tested it with the Samsung original USB cable and I was getting a more full charge. I always suggest using the manufacturer's original USB cable to charge from any power source. But of course you only get 1 of these when you buy the device. It would be nice if the car charger did come with a charging USB cable this way you are ready to go out of the box and you can keep it with the car charger. But overall this car charger is great for anyone looking to charge their tablet or phone in the car. It is well built, solid and fits perfectly in my cigarette lighter port. It fits very snug which is good. (Posted on 4/29/14)
Perfect Car Charger! Review by Robin
This car charger is perfect. Again I would give this product 5 stars. It
is compact enough to leave in the cubby of the car and capable of charging
two tablets at once. My iPhone 5 and my sons iPhone four both went from
about a 25% charge to a 75% charge in about 20 minutes of active driving.
So not as fast as some of the chargers from New Trent but perfect for our
uses. The only thing I might change is the speed. Otherwise these are
great little car chargers. (Posted on 4/29/14)
Exceptional bargain for car chargers Review by Valerie
The first thing I noticed about these New Trent Dual Rapiduo Plus USB Car Chargers (NT81T) is that they are beautiful. The smooth surface and sleek styling make these chargers stand out from the crowd. But the beauty is not just skin deep!

The chargers go easily into the charging sockets and stay there. The blue light that indicates the charger is receiving power is helpful but not annoyingly bright. And devices seem to charge just as quickly as New Trent external batteries or wall sockets. It is wonderful that you can charge two devices at one time (no more fights over who gets to recharge!)

There is not more that can be said other than these are exceptional chargers and a bargain for the cost. I would give these as gifts and highly recommend them with a 5 out of 5 rating.

The only thing that needs improvement is the instructions. They make it look like one of the USB chargers is for iOS devices and one for Android, which seemed odd in that the specification of the connectors were the same. I had to read through several reviews to feel confident that both types of devices can be charged in both USB ports. (Posted on 4/29/14)
quite handy for phone and tablet in the car Review by Scott
My wife and I each use a cell phone in the car, which is limited on power prongs, so a dual charger comes in handy. I like this charger for a few reasons. It is quite thin, so it fits nice in the 3-outlet accessory power strip I have mounted in the car. It powers 2 iPads at once (with 2.1A each), should I ever need that. It is built quite sturdy, does not look like it would break easily, as others have for me (they tend to pull in half from stress when used constantly). I use the charger daily, and sometimes it gets bumped, so the sturdiness is nice. Also, it holds the 2 USB plugs quite well; they fit deep in there and no movement at all.

On the negative side, it is kind of long, so it sticks out some when plugged in, so I have to be careful not to bump it or knock it loose (I have not loosened it yet). My previous dual charger had red LED inside, so when it was plugged in, you could tell; this has a blue one, so it matches the interior lighting in the car, a plus to me.

At this price point, $11.95 for 2 units, this is a steal (I paid $9.99 for 1 unit that these replaced). It works well and I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars. (Posted on 4/29/14)
Its awesome Review by Albert

Perfect dual rapid chargers! Review by iamwally
As with any New Trent product I have ordered this item was delivered sooner than expected and well packaged.
Now to the real test, would they really be able to rapid charge 2 tablets at once? The answer is yes! I was able to hook up my iPad 2 and my iPad Air and both charged simultaneously! I actually could not believe it! Not that I would be using both tablets in my vehicle very often but it is nice to know it could be done. Certainly I may find occasion to be using my iPhone 5 and either of the tablets so at least I know I have more than enough power for that combination of devices and more if I need it.

If anyone is looking for a nice rapid charger for the car look no further. I highly recommend you purchase this 2 pack and have more than enough power for both of your vehicles! Bravo New Trent! (Posted on 4/29/14)
This should be standard issue in all cars. Review by Gregory
The NT81T dual USB charger is a pretty straightforward device. NewTrent improved its last charger by making both outputs 5 Volts/2.1 Amps. The box states that one slot is for Apple devices while the other is for Android, but I used both slots on my iPhone 5s and my iPad with no problems. The iPad seemed to work a little better in Output A though. There’s a light on the top of the charger to tell you which end is up. I’ve always complained that new cars need more USB ports in the car for charging and until then, the NT81T fills the void perfectly. The device fit snugly in all my cigarette ports in both my wife’s car and in mine. Some people complain about the length of the charger, but my cigarette charger is positioned so far back that it worked great for me. The fact that it comes with two at this great price was a no brainer for me and my family. 5 Stars all the way. (Posted on 4/29/14)
Great product Review by Travis
The charger works better than I anticipated. In addition to having 2 USB slots, it also charged my phone faster than the single slot charger I bought a few months ago. The good thing about the chargers where you plug in the USB for your device is that you are not confined to using one device per charger. Even if 2 USB's are not enough, you can always swap with a new cord anything else needing charged. (Posted on 4/27/14)
Good for accessibility Review by Ben
While this isn't the cheapest dual-USB charging
device, if you factor in the fact that you get two units and that they work
very well, they are well worth the price. There is enough room between the
two slots that you can fit nearly any USB connection in. It worked with
both Apple-supplied cables along with cheap knockoffs and other USB
products. I have multiple USB inputs in my car, but this brought them right
to the front of my dashboard so it made it very efficient. (Posted on 4/27/14)
Simple and fast car charger Review by Derek
I found the car charger to be very functional. I used it to charge my iPhone 5S and my iPad Air going to and from work in my car. I had no trouble with plugging it into my car. There was no difference between the black and the white chargers that came in the box. I did find the initially plugging my USB cables into the chargers was a little tight but improved with use. I liked having the little blue indicator light that let me know I had plugged the charger all the way into the cigarette lighter. It was nice that it was skinny but might have been a little shorter if possible. I found that the charging time was pretty good for both devices. In about a 15-20 minute drive I got about 6-8% of my battery recharged on both the iPhone 5S and the iPad Air. I have noticed with some other car chargers that it takes hours to get a little bit of charge but it wasn't the case with this charger. I did not have 2 devices plugged into the charger at once but it seems like it will be a nice feature on road trips, since I often find my wife and I swapping between which phone gets to charge. Overall, it is a nice charger that is very functional and quick to recharge my phone. (Posted on 4/26/14)

I like that it comes with two sets of chargers, the size is nice an compact and the availability of 2 ports helps out. The highest rating the charger will output is 2.1A. This is a necessity with today's power hungry large screen phones/devices. During my evaluations, under full brightness and using GPS in the car, the charger was not able to keep the phone above its current percentage. It does however slow the rate of discharge, but this happens to most 2.1A DC chargers I have used in the past. The charger also does not lock into the DC jack of the car. It will slide out fairly easily. Based on the standards that I have seen, I would
have to rate this a 4 out of 5. (Posted on 4/24/14)
Reliable Chargers Review by Bob
As an IT professional I'm constantly on the move and need to keep my devices juiced up.
These chargers do the trick to keep me going. The fact that these chargers provide two ports is very helpful.
I have used the chargers to power an IPhone 5S, IPhone 5C, and IPad 4 without any issues. I have charged 2 devices at once, Phone & IPad and they both charge quickly.
The only issue I have would be if I wanted to charge 2 IPads at the same time because only one of the ports worked with my IPad (port A), typically this would not be an issue.
I give this product a rating of 4 stars for the following reasons; It will only charge IPad on one port, and the size could be a bit smaller. (Posted on 4/23/14)
Great Value and Performance Review by Chris
I’m always looking for more power! I use power on my Nokia Lumia 1520 like it is going out of style and plugged into power plant. Often I take significantly long trips from 1 hour to 12 hours+ in the car. I have a device to charge my phones on the go, but in the car, I want a nice car charger. I’m done buying the cheap phone company chargers that constantly break. New Trent provides a car charger that I can actually use.

Form: The package comes with two 4.2A charges that each of two 2.1A ports. One is White and one is black. One port (A) says it is for Apple products and the other port (B) says it is for Android products. I use it with my Windows phone (Nokia Lumia 1520 Phablet). I love that two come in the package and the chargers are a decent size (slightly longer than the compact ones I like, but normal size). The two colors allows you to pick which one fits décor better (or use both)! The biggest complaint is that the White charger doesn’t seem to fit any of my 12V car charge ports. I think it is NOT a normal issue and probably just the one charger, but it wiggles and falls out of the port making me have to check it every 15 minutes to see if it is still charging. The black charger fits nice and snug. I tried both chargers in 5 different ports between two vehicles and it was the same. (Rating: 3 of 5).

Cost: $11.95 on Prime with free 2 day shipping is hard to beat. You get two high-speed dual port car chargers which is perfect for my family of 7! (Rating: 5 of 5)

Durability: I’ve used the chargers for hours (at least 30+ hours) and they are holding up (except the white charger’s fitting issue described in the form section). I believe these are well-made.

Performance: Apple Port A vs Android Port B
Plugging in my Nokia Lumia 1520 into the Apple Port A, it charged about 19% per hour. Plugging in my phone into the Android Port B charged my phone about 31% per hour. Not sure why they were different, but both ports are sufficient and port B is more powerful. (Rating 5 of 5)

These are welcomed additions to my charging/power collection. To raise the rating, I would need both chargers to fit well (1.5+ stars) and slightly smaller (0.5 stars).

an awesome do it all charger Review by Michael
Finally a car charger that can put out 2.1A per usb slot. So many charger on the market have two usb slots but can only charge two phones at a time, or one iPad only. Plugging in an iPad and an iPhone will give you poor charging on both. But this beautiful charger can charge everything you plug into it. I’ve used this charger for the past week and I’m impressed that it charges as well as the wall charger that came with my iPad. It is the best car charger I’ve ever owned, and I highly recommend it to anyone like me that travels with multiple devices in their vehicle.

The price is right too. You get 2 of these great charger for what others charge for just one. Share one with your significant other or your kids. (This makes wifey happy…..happy wife, happy life) (Posted on 4/16/14)
Multi taskers will love it Review by wiremup
I received my New Trent Dual USB Car Charger model NT81T in the mail a week or so ago and I was pleasantly surprised at how sleek looking the are. They are very not intrusive while doing a great job. I have both an iPhone and iPad that I use for work and I’m driving around most of my day so it’s nice to have the dual USB ports so I can charge both units at the same time. I love the fact that when I get to my destination my iPhone is 100% charged and I have no worries about running out of juice. The New Trent Dual USB Car Charger model NT81T stays plugged in tightly and I have had no issue with the USB ports, everything works great. My wife liked the fact that it’s a two pack and now she keeps on plugged in all the time in her car. Another outstanding product from New Trent. I don’t go any where without carrying one or two of their products, they make my life much less stressful. (Posted on 4/16/14)
Loose fitting car charger Review by Wendy
Review for New Trent (2PCS) Twin-Pack: Rapiduo Plus Dual High-Speed 2.1A USB Port Car Chargers: Total 5V@4.2A = 20W output - 1x black and 1x white (NT81T). This car charger seems to be very well made, sturdy. When plugging the charger ino the ciggarette lighter I noticed the charger was prety loose. I'm sure on bumpy roads it will fall outt. My car is pretty old, it is a 2003 Pontiac Bonniville. Plugging in a usb cable into the charger was a litle bit hard, but there is no way the usb cable will fall out. I have charged both my husbands and my iPhone 5's at the same time and it worked great! Charging the iPhone 5 is very fast. I havn't gotten a chance to charge my iPad 4th gen with it yet. But, I am confident it will work just as descibed. As long as it stays plugged in. That is my biggest concern about this charger. I just don't think it is going to stay plugged in and over time I think it is going to get worse. I would give this charger 2 out of 5 stars. I would not reccommend this to my friends.

Easy-to-use car charger Review by Phox
I have tried the New Trent USB car charger, both black and white, and they both perform very well. Each having two USB ports, I can charge my phone and an additional device while on the go. The glowing blue light lets me know when power is being provided to USB ports and is not very intrusive. I would recommend these USB car chargers to anyone who travels by vehicle often.

Trent Dual Charger is a Winner! Review by Lynn
The New Trent Dual charger is an excellent product for the travelers in any family! I have used it in my Camry and also in my wife's Ford Escape and they worked flawlessly. Because they come two to the package my wife was extremely happy to get her own phone charger. One is black in color and the other is white, so we always know which one is ours.
They are extremely well made and are very nice looking for a charger and they do stay in the socket when plugged in.....I had no trouble in either car. Because of the dual function of each charger you can charge an Android product and an apple product at the same time.
I charged our Kindle HD Fire in the car and it charged flawlessly. I couldn't be happier with this product. The quality of both of the chargers surpasses those that I have purchase previously at the phone stores.
Yes I would recommend this to a family member and any friend who is looking for an excellent car charge with extreme flexibility.
I rate this item at Five Stars

Another great New Trent product. Review by Julie
I already use New Trent USB car chargers in our Acura and truck, and I am happy with them. I admit, I am a New Trent "junkie." If there's a product I use/want that New Trent makes, I know it will be of good quality and a good buy, and I have yet to be disappointed. So, with that said, when I got the New Trent Airbender Mini for my new iPad mini, I also picked up the twin pack of Rapiduo car chargers. The Rapiduo charger has two 2.1A ports while the New Trent 88C I use now has a 2.1A and a 1A port. AND, there are two Rapiduo chargers in the package. Besides, the price on Amazon is a bargain.

After using the black one in the Acura for a few days, I'm finding that it does indeed charge two iPhones faster, and for that matter, it charges hubby's iPhone and my new iPad quickly as well. And, since both ports are the same, I don't need to worry about which one I plug the iPad into. It also looks classy and blends in well. Others have commented that the long shank doesn't stay in well. Yes, it is slightly longer than my 88C and I notice that the "nipple" on the end of the Rapiduo isn't quite as large nor are the side springs quite as firm as the 88c. But, the spring tabs on the side of the Rapiduo are slightly bigger and stick out a littler more to compensate. So from a fit standpoint, I think it's a draw. With that said, if your power port is a long way from where your phone/tablet sits, I can understand if the strain on the cable may wiggle it loose. For me, it's not a concern, and I appreciate the extra power. Like all New Trent products, this is a quality, attractive product, that does what it's supposed to do well. These are keepers.

Get a 2 pack and stop worrying about where your chargers are... Review by David
First off, this is a great two pack of car chargers to have on hand. I'm always misplacing my USB car charger plugs--I probably have 6 of them but only 1 is ever in the car. With these two new ones, I can leave one in the glovebox in case one walks off.

From a functionality standpoint, these worked fine charging two iPhone 5s 
The LED light on the charger illuminates blue when you connect it to the
car power outlet. It is a soft glow light, which I prefer. Some previous 
chargers I've used have had distractingly bright LED's. This light seems to
 be behind a thin layer of plastic, which makes it more of a glow coming 
from inside the plug. You can see a little bit of the light from within the 
USB ports themselves, which helps to locate the actual ports in the dark.

One note regarding my car: the car's power outlet seems to supply power to devices even after the ignition is off (I haven't waited around to see how long it remains on for...) so what I do is, when I shut off the car, I pull the charger--or whatever I have plugged in-- out just a little bit until the LED turns off to break the connection. I then don't have to worry about the charger running forever.

All in all, these chargers are a great standard that every smartphone or
mobile device-toting owner should have in their car. Batteries always 
unexpectedly run down, and if you don't have one of these, you'll be left
 without power.

As far as USB cables for the iPhone go, I do recommend Amazon's own branded cables--they're slightly cheaper than Apple's, and you can rest assured they will function with Apple devices. They work fine with these New Trent chargers.

Terrific Value and Quality Review by T
The chargers work well and as intended for both myself and my passenger. No more having to fight over the charging port!

I would definitely recommend this. (Posted on 3/25/14)
Can never have too many of these! Review by Michael
These USB dual port car chargers (NT81T) are great! I can never have too
many of them. I always keep one in my car, one in my fiancee's car, and
some inside the home in case I know I'll be traveling in somebody elses

I own one of New Trent's previous models of the car charger, and I really
appreciate this upgraded one. I love the fact that both ports are 2.1amps.
The other one I was always pausing for a second to decide which port I
should plug into to get the most power. This one I dont have to think
anymore ...which is always a good thing ;P

They're simple, sleek, and do what they're supposed to do. What more could
you ask for? 5 golden stars from me =) (Posted on 3/24/14)
FAST FAST CHARGE! Review by Josh
These chargers were awesome! They charged my ipad, iphone, GPS within no time! These are three of the products that I regularly use and I must say, the Rapiduo plus lives up to its name, "HIGH-SPEED!" I also like how you know when the charger is illuminates! (Posted on 3/24/14)
Must have! Review by Tycho
I’ve tested (and still use) a similar product (NT88C) and
found that this product works great as well. This new version seems to be a
little sturdier but plugs in the same. I've had no problems getting it to work
with either of my cars (a VW and a Saturn) and quick charged my iPhone 5S for
20 minutes, giving me a solid 35% boost. I know it isn't the best thing to do to your phones to charge it at a high rate for a long time, but every once in a while it shouldn't be too big of a strain on the battery. Now if you have an iPad or something similar, charge it on the go. This product is great for long trips where the kids drain the device watching movies.
And if you have a spouse or a kid (or two cars) you get 2 of these in the package. 5 stars for this product, since it works great. Can't beat the value for the money either! (Posted on 3/22/14)
Two for the price of one! Review by Paul
This review is for the New Trent Dual Rapiduo Plus USB car charger (NT81T). I will break this review up into three parts that detail my experiences.

Fit/Build Quality

For a USB car charger, a plastic body is acceptable since you won’t be moving or abusing it much. The USB charger slides into my cigarette lighter easily and doesn’t pop out. The two USB ports are rated at 2.1A. USB insertion is easy and you don’t have to force it in. There is one indicator light on the top to indicate the charger is receiving power.


I have charged my Bluetooth hands-free speaker as well as my iphone 4. No issues with charging either one. It seems to charge my devices faster than my older New Trent USB car charger which is rated at 1A/2.1A. I have not experienced any blown fuses as a result of using this.

Future Improvements

An angled head would be ideal for cigarette lighters that are located in confined spaces. The cigarette lighter in my car is located underneath my center console armrest. An angled head would give this more space once a device is plugged into it. Another thing, I don’t know why you went with a single indicator light. The previous model I had illuminated the whole top portion. It was quite beautiful in the dark. I say bring that back.

Overall Score

I give this product a 5/5. It does what it’s supposed to do and does it well. The two-pack is an added bonus.

Love how it looks - love how it works even more Review by Ryan

I am writing this review of the NewTrent NT81T 4.2A Dual USB Car Charger.
This unit is replacing an Amazon Basics CLA-USB02. Both units are rated
the same 5V, 2.1A. The NewTrent NT81T has a sleeker form factor vs. the
Amazon Basics charger. Side by side, the NT81T appears much smaller. In a
clustered control panel of my small VW, small differences make a huge deal.
Another feature that I really like about the NT81T is that the LED
indicator light is just bright enough for you to know that it is on, but
not so bright that it is a distraction when driving at night. I also
appreciate how the charger is clearly labeled A and B so I know where to
connect my Android phone or my car pool friend's I-Phone.

I use this charger with my Samsung S4 Android phone - I love that the
charger allows the phone to charge at full AC speed vs. other chargers.
The Amazon Basics charger is rated at the same power, but I honestly feel
that the NewTrent NT81T charges my phone faster.

Driving and using the GPS on your phone can be draining on your battery,
even when it is plugged in, there is something rewarding about watching
your battery indicator increase while plugged into the NT81T and using the
GPS at the same time. I also play a lot of music through the bluetooth of
my phone and make voice calls while the phone is utilizing the charger.

Anyone who has a morning / evening commute need to have a phone charger in
their car, but getting an over priced charger from the cell phone reseller
is not the way to go. The NT81T gives you two chargers for the price of
one. You can choose black or white (I choose white because it looked

If I was to rate his product on a five point scale - I would give it a five. (Posted on 3/19/14)
Great Chargers Review by Jeff
The car chargers work wonderfully, and with twin USB plugs I can charge two devices at the same time. That is a plus for me. The charger gives a smooth constant constant charge while the car is running and with the blue LED light I know that it fuctionining. I have found that this charger gives a faster charge than the other car chargers I have had, I believe a double the amount at one time. I can find no cons with this caharger and when its a twin set for the price of one you can't go wrong. I would rcommend this to a friend. (Posted on 3/19/14)

Charges two things at once! Review by Sarah
I love this charger! It allows me to charge two things at once! It is very helpful in my car! My car has only one outlet to plug in chargers so I can normally only plug in one thing at a time! This allows me to charge multiple things at once which is very helpful. It is very helpful on long car rides because my cell phone and my friends cell can be charged at the same time! :-) I love this product! (Posted on 3/16/14)
great charger Review by Chad
The car chargers work excellent, and for the price you can not really ask for anything more. I have not only used them for my iPhone 5s but found myself in a pinch one day and had to use it for my iPad as well and it gave it an extra boost to get through what I needed. (Posted on 3/10/14)

Love this Review by Brandi
I LOVE the New Trent Dual Rapiduo Plus USB car charger (NT81T)! It charges my phone just as fast, if not faster, as my wall charger which is great. I'll only use a car charger if my phone is actually dying or if a passenger needs it. One thing I did find confusing was that the box said port B was for Android, but it seems as though either port could be used for either device. I'd definitely give it a 5. (Posted on 2/23/14)
Quick and Great Review by Ana
A 10-15 minute ride to work can charge my non-smartphone completely and my iPod Touch 2G 50 percent. Both started at a charge of 0.

All car chargers are useful but because this one has two USB charges it makes things much more efficient. My car doesn't have too many cigarette lighters so having the ability to charge two devices with only one plug is great.

Similar to New Trent's Two Pack Styluses, these car adapters come in a sleek black and white. They are very nice, a great quality to add onto an already useful product. Build quality is also very strong. I wish there was a little texture to them to make gripping a bit easier since I tend to have sweatier hands than most. Removal isn't too difficult though.

Two car chargers for $15 is great deal. Not only are they dual ported but they look great and charge all USB devices quickly. (Posted on 2/22/14)
It's like getting one free... Review by Leonard
This set of 2 chargers is excellent. Dual ports are great. Getting 2 separate chargers is even better. I would have easily paid the same price for just 1 so it's like getting another for free. It's a little longer than expected but it feels very durable. It charges my iPhone pretty quickly and my iPad at a decent rate. I'm sure i'll be using this charger after I get a new phone or tablet down the road. (Posted on 2/21/14)
Great chargers, great price Review by Chris
In my opinion, just one of these little car chargers is worth the $13.95 price tag. High quality is to be expected with both of the chargers, as well as for any and all NewTrent products I've had the pleasure to own.
My first time plugging it in to the car I had a slight difficulty doing so; it felt very tight, but I've since unplugged it and plugged it back in with ease, as if it just needed to be "broken in." Once you plug it in, however, there's really no need to remove it again. Charging an iPhone 5S at 35%, I drove ten minutes to my girlfriend's to pick her up, and by the time of my arrival, the phone was at 47% charge, which, in my experience, is a fast charge.
When I picked my girlfriend up, she told me she needed to charge her phone, so, luckily, I was able to simultaneously charge her's with mine, courtesy of the dual port that I had not had before; often we would "fight" over who gets to charge their phone first, she always being the winner. I gave the second, white charger to my girlfriend for her car, so no matter whose car we are in, we can both charge our phones. Now we are both winners! Accentuating the smooth design of the charger is the amber/orange LED glow on the white one, and the blue glow on the black charger.
Again, NewTrent's dedication to high quality products has made me a loyal customer to their brand. (Posted on 2/14/14)

very reliable and fast car charger and i gave it 4 1/2 stars. (Posted on 2/12/14)
Great quality, really happy experience Review by Chris
I have been using both car adapters from the dual pack, model number NT81T, for roughly a week now.

The number one best thing about this product is its build quality. From day one opening it up I loved the way it felt in the hand. The Springs on the inside feel very tight and that insured it wont fall out of my car port. Another thing I loved about this product, and probably the biggest difference between this charger and its competitors, is the ports. I don't know how they were cut, but it is a very precise cut, and this means a tight fit for cables that would otherwise fall out. I used this device in multiple vehicles and across a vast array of devices (everything from a cell phone, to tablet, even multiple Garmin GPS units). And It charged my Blackberry Playbook, so no complaints there.

However, when It comes to complaints I do have some. Two of them to be exact. First is the overall design, I love the feel of the device, but it seems a bit large and clunky compared to similar products. Its size does not hinder its performance in any way, and I'm sure I will grow accustom to the design with further use. Now for the bigger complaint and that is the placement of the light that lets the user know if there is power to the device. On the white unit this is not a problem as the light is very bright and able to be seen at all times, however on the black unit, the light can be hard to see during the day. This is not a very large issue but one that did seem to bother me when I had nothing plugged into the charger.

After all things considered, I can get past the design of the unit because it still feels great to hold. But I would like to see a better power indicator in future models. Overall this product earns a 5 out of 5 (Posted on 2/12/14)
Highly Recommended Product! Review by Kent
Pros: This is an exceptional device for charging multiple mobile devices at once. Many similar products on the market only give half power to the second USB port. But, this device gives equal power to both USB ports and devices are charged quickly.

Cons: None

Pros: The neon blue LED light within the top of the Rapidduo plus is really nice to let you know that power is accessible. Also, at night it gives light for plugging/unplugging devices. The Rapidduo plus is easy to handle and is very well made...very sturdy. You can tell the Rapidduo plus is a product that is made well.

Cons: The length of the Rapidduo plus is a bit long for some vehicles. In my Nissan Quest it fits really well, but in my Pathfinder the car ports are shallow and the Rapidduo plus has trouble staying in the port. Also, the springs that hold the unit in the car port are not as strong as some other chargers I've used.

The Rapidduo plus is a great product and delivers a solid charging power for two devices at a time. I would highly recommend this product. (Posted on 1/28/14)
Don't leave home without it! Review by Tim
The Rapiduo Plus provides a very inexpensive and useful option for powering many 5-volt devices when you don't have access to an AC outlet.

If you travel or work in the field - using your vehicle as a mobile office - you need some type of 12-volt adapter to power and/or charge your mobile phone or iPad. The Rapiduo Plus will handle this chore for you flawlessly. It's also important to note that New Trent sells this adapter in 2-pack, which puts the unit price among the lowest you'll find - especially for a quality product.

I have used mine with an iPad (1st generation), iPhone 4, Nokia Lumia 521 Windows phone and a 4.3-inch Android tablet. Both of the adapters (i.e. the white one and the black one) performed perfectly.

That being said, PLEASE NOTE - there are some mobile devices that will not charge from a 12-volt charger or an eternal battery like those New Trent sells. You should make sure that the unit you have will accept power from a 12-volt adapter before you purchase the Rapiduo Plus. I consider this a device issue, not a New Trent issue.

Example - I own a Toshiba Encore Windows 8.1 tablet that apparently MUST see power from an AC power supply to charge; either that, or I'm not smart enough to figure out which setting to change. :)

s noted above, you get two adapters in the New Trent package. I put one in my vehicle and the other in my briefcase. (Posted on 1/26/14)
Very useful for travelers Review by Ben
The rapiduo usb car charger is very useful. Definitely worth the money. I found that when I took a long car trip I had to charge a couple of devices such as my phone and iPod along with my iPad. Being able to charge two devices at once was amazing! I was able to charge all of my devices on the way to my destination as opposed to having to unplug each device each time to charge the next one this significantly saves time.
It’s definitely built solid and the light that indicates it’s charging is appreciated.
Would rate this a 5 star product and recommend it to anyone who travels a lot (Posted on 1/26/14)
Great Dual Charger Review by KT
New Trent (2PCS) Twin-Pack: Duo Rapiduo Plus Dual High-Speed USB Port Car Chargers - 1pc 20W black and 1pc 20W white (NT81T)

This is a great price for 2 USB car chargers that can each charge two devices at the same time. Nice to have one for each vehicle. I have used the Duo Rapido Plus Dual charger to charge an iPhone 4 and an iPad Mini with Retina at the same time. It does the job, and even charges when the car is powered off, which is a huge plus. A blue light glows to let you know it is connected and able to charge. I doubt it pulls much juice from the car battery, but I do disconnect it when it is not in use. I experimented to see if my devices charged any faster through the USB port in my stereo, which is my typical way of charging, and after multiple trials, there appears to be no difference in speed. The benefit to the Duo Rapido Plus is that you can charge two devices at once and they will continue charging when the car is not running. Plus you get two of them for one great price!

I give this a 5 out of 5 stars.

Simple, well designed chargers Review by Justin
Simple, cleanly designed chargers that support iPhone/iProducts and Android products, and can charge at high current. I've got one in my car hooked up to an iPhone charging cable and a USB hub that I modified for power only, so I can charge several devices at once (up to 4 at 0.5A each + iPhone). Highly recommend it, great value with the two pack. (Posted on 1/23/14)
Great product with a great price Review by Richard
i love this product ,the fact that I can charge my phone and the kids can charge there's also is awesome.It has a really good price for getting two of them ,one for each of our cars. The dual USB ports make it so much easier and convenient than having just one. (Posted on 1/23/14)
My new go-to car chargers!! Love them Review by Joran
First Impressions

The first thing I noticed after unboxing the New Trent Dual Rapiduo Plus NT81T USB car charger was how well made it was. I’ve used many USB car chargers, many of which fell apart or broke easily. Many lesser car chargers are small and feel shoddy. This charger feels solidly made and seems it could stand up to wear and tear.


1) Two 2.1 amp ports means I can charge any combination of tablets or phones. This is superior to a charger with a 1.1 amp and a 2.1 port

2) The USB fits very snuggly in the slot and doesn’t feel like it will easily come unplugged.

3) Blue LED let me know the device is plugged in and powered.

4) The fact these are sold as a two pack means one for my car and one for my girlfriend.


Upon first testing the unit I wanted to run it through the paces with my standard setup: iPad 3 and iPhone 5. For the purpose of this test I ran the iPad down to 45% and the iPhone to 70%. I have about an hour commute in the morning, so i connected both devices and drove to work. I usually use my iPhone to listen to music, but decided to just charge and not make the charger work harder than it needed to.

After an hour my iPhone was up from 70% to 86% and the iPad 3 was up from 45% to 63%. I was blown away how fast this charger seems to work. I've read other reviews that reported different results but over the hour I am more than happy with the speed in which this unit charges. Call me impressed.

Suggested Improvements

The only thing I could suggest to improve this product would be to make the end that goes into the DC/cigarette lighter port just a tiny bit larger. It doesn’t feel super secure, but since my charge port is vertical in my center console this is not an issue for me. Otherwise, a very well built and well-functioning device.

I give this device a strong 4.5 stars but lets just round it to 5 shall we? I’d like to see it fit just a bit tighter in the port, but all around a great product that I would gladly recommend. (Posted on 1/23/14)
LOVE these!! Review by Jessi
I did not expect these to be anything special, just normal car chargers. I was so happy to see that it has 2 ports (I had no idea how often I would need both ports until I had it!) and I love that it comes with 2 chargers! My husband and I can put on in each of our Jeep’s and we don’t have to fight over who has the charger! I really love the look of it, and the nice, cool blue light is not disruptive when driving and yet it tells me it’s on! The only issue I ran into was when I was using it in my phone on my adapter my phone wouldn’t work for me. When I tried to type it kept kicking back out of the screen and just kinda acting weird. BUT, it did NOT do that when I had it plugged into the car. I HIGHLY recommend this product it looks sleek and is very helpful, especially with two ports!! (Posted on 1/23/14)
Excellent charger and excellent value Review by Luke
You cannot beat having two 2.1 amp rails to charge your devices on. I cannot tell you how many times I need to have a device like this when taking trips with my family and friends. This product is a good example of value, you get two well made car chargers, that work exactly as advertised, and provide a service that you need. There is very little more I can say other than these are used daily on my commute and my wife's commute. I run several electronic devices all day, and some require 2.1 amps to charge (ahem iPad), so being able to plug an nexus 5 and an ipad into the same charger and pull enough amps and volts to get the job done is a delight.

Loved it!!!! Review by Thomas
This product is amazing. If you are looking for a high speed dual USB car charger then look no further. Even when the product you are charging is being used like GPS, the charge time is still mind blowing short. I compared this against another dual USB charger made by griffin and the new trent one blew past the griffin one. I would recommend this to anyone, even a stranger! Great product. (Posted on 1/22/14)
Great Chargers, and you get TWO of them! Review by James
As a man with an iPod, iPhone, iPad, iEverything, its great for me to keep these charged. I use my iPhone in my car, listening to podcasts and what not.

the problem used to be, listening to my iPhone in my car would mean I would need to sacrifice battery life. Not anymore!!

with these car chargers, not only do I get a charger for my car, but I also keep one in my girlfriends car so I"m always good to go. I love the fact that its not a dedicated iPhone charger too, and is just two straight USB ports.

I aaaalways hated having an empty iphone battery, but now im good to go! must have (Posted on 1/22/14)
Review for: New Trent Dual Rapiduo Plus, Twin-Pack 20W high-speed dual USB port car chargers (NT81T) Review by Sal
The New Trent Dual Rapiduo Plus car charger is an excellent product which does precisely what it aims to do. You are able to charge 2 separate USB charged apparatus at the same time from a 12 Volt outlet in a car.
>As anyone knows who has used 12 volt chargers or power supplies knows, often times the fit is difficult. Either the plug is too tight or is so loose that it falls out. That is not the case with this product. The plug fits perfectly into the "cigarette lighter" receptacle snug enough to stay in place even with two cords attached.
In my case I tested it with an Iphone 5s and a Samsung Rugby II phone, both of which charged simultaneously without incident. I also tested it with the aforementioned Iphone 5s and a Garmin GPS. The Iphone charged while the GPS functioned on car power.
This product is ideal for those who have a car without a USB port, and/or have need of charging or using more than 1 device at a time. (Posted on 1/11/14)
I have been in the market for a new USB car charger for a while because the extremely compact one I bought from Griffin has proved to be a huge pain. I've purchased other tech toys from New Trent so I decided to give them another shot. First off, they look very sleek. Although they aren't the smallest and most compact, they certainly fit in a course, glove box, or console. It even fits in the small space under my stereo. I generally drive for about 30-40 minutes at a time, and within that amount of time, my device had already gone up by about 25-30%. I understand that its not going to fully charge it that quick, but my phone has a big battery compared to a cheap non smart phone. That's something to definitely be noted. If you have a basic phone, this thing will charge the small battery lightning fast. My girlfriend and I were both able to substantially charge our phones at the same time with ease. The placement of the ports allows even the widest cables to be plugged in side by side. And my favorite part was that this charger is able to be inserted and removed with almost no effort. My last one would hold on for dear life inside of the socket. That doesn't mean its loose though. All in all, I'm very happy with this investment and would STRONGLY recommend this to everyone. 5 out of 5. (Posted on 1/9/14)
Simple and Reliable Review by Shani
These chargers are pretty simple, which is GOOD, because that's what chargers need to be: simple and reliable. My car (Toyota Camry) has two charger ports: one in the dash and the other inside the armrest, and I thought the latter might be a problem because my first impression of these were that they were quite long. Of course both did fit in their respective sockets, and snugly, which is another plus. In addition to day-to-day use with the standard Apple USB 30-pin and Lightning cables as well as the mini-USB cable for my wifi hotspot, I've been able to use these to charge two iPads and two iPhones concurrently on a seven-hour trip. They stayed put, without wiggling out of place or shorting out. There is no irritating flickering on and off of the indicator lights or that "charging/not charging" beep. It has only been a little over a week, but so far, so good.

On a scale of 1 to 5, I give these a 5. I'm pleased and I'd recommend or even purchase them for others as gifts. (Posted on 1/7/14)
Awesome Pair or Chargers! Review by B

One of my favorite things about this product is that it contains 2 chargers. One white and one black. This allowed me to be able to use the black one in my vehicle with the darker interior and the white one in my wife’s car which has a lighter interior.

My one complaint about the design is there is no way to change out the fuse. I have had chargers in the past that have shorted out and I was able to replace the fuse and it was still functional. If one of these shorted out, it would no longer be useful.


These chargers are very simple, but they work very well. I have charged my, IPad 3, iPad Mini, iPhone 4 and 4S, and Verizon Mifi with the charger. All of them have charged without any issue and they seem to charge very quickly.

I love the fact that these are both 2 amp ports. That means I don’t have to compromise when I want to charge something.

I also like the fact that there is an LED light and that it is not super bright. I have seen a lot of lights that are blinding, but this one is great.

New Trent 4.2 (max) Dual USB Car Charger - Great Product - Great Value ! Review by Richard
Some of us have cars that have cables that will connect your device to the sound system AND charge your device at the same time. Many do not, and have devices that they wish could charge in their cars. The New Trent 4.2A Dual USB car charger is ideal for phone and tablet charging at the same time. The convenient twin pack is excellent for families with two cars.
Living in Florida I wondered about shipping time. The supplier is located in California. Here is the equation. Three separate New Trent orders - through Amazon - from California - to Florida - arrived in two days with tracking. Packaging was excellent.
Upon inspecting the New Trent Dual USB Car Charger I found the finish to be of good quality and the fitment to be quite acceptable. Connection to both the car and the USB were snug and easy to use. The USB ports were sufficiently separate to not make connecting difficult. The only potential issues is removing one USB when you have two connected. You run the risk of pulling the whole charger out if you do not use two hands. This did not happen to me when I experimented with it, but just a caution. There is not a great deal to say about this style charger. It worked well.The twin pack is an excellent value. Shipping is fast. Rating an easy 5.

The best price for two Review by Mike
It's really nice to have two of these, especially one as a backup for another car. having two USB ports is great too especially when they both work. Giving this 5 stars, it's pretty straight forward, and it works great. (Posted on 1/6/14)
Great charger Review by Christopher
I have tested the NT81T Dual USB Car Charger. The device is very
solid in material and will not break easily. It is longer that some others
which is a great feature since those charging ports are often stuck back
out of sight. I charged both an Ipad Air and Iphone 5 at the same time.
The Iphone charged at a rate of about 1% per minute which took it from 10%
to 100% in just 90 minutes of driving. The Ipad Air charged at about 20%
per hour so it took 3 hours to go from 40% to 100%. The fact that you can
see a blue light when it is plugged in to the car is nice feedback to know
the device is properly plugged into the car. Having two in a package is
nice since most families have 2 vehicles. (Posted on 1/3/14)
Great Car Charger - doubles your charging ability! Review by Bill
I used the Dual USB Car Charger with my iPad and my Airbender keyboard/case while driving to and from the airport, and with my iPhone all the time... Excellent tool!

• Great two-USB design
• Both black and white devices
• Blue light to show it is connected
• Charges tools quickly
• Attractive design
• Easy to use
• No specs or instructions…

I subsequently learned from the manufacturer the there's no difference between A and B ports. Good to know!

I used the product in my car. It is a simple tool that met my expectations and doubled my charging ability for each of the two charging ports in my car. The product would be great for anyone who needs a solid charger for use in the car.

Rating (scale of 1 = bad, 5 = excellent): 4.7

Well built product Review by Dylan
This NT81T is easy and solid 5 out of 5 product. I already owned a dual USB wall charger NT90C from New Trent. I like the way it built. Most people over looked on product like this. Elegant that will be the perfect way to describe these dual USB port car chargers from New Trent. Flawless finished body, and a little blue LED light is a nice touch, just bright enough to locate ports at night, also good way to test out sockets on your vehicles. Great for those who owns apple products, like me, since comes in black and white. Although after 4 days of usage I'm little concerned about insert end, it seems not as tight as other products I used before.

My wife has been complained that she needed new car charger for her S3 and GPS, well I gave her white and I kept the black. Seems like she is very pleased with the product so far.
A little longer than most other car chargers out there. Like all other products, black one is dust, oil, and finger print magnets.
No complains so far, works very well with iPhone5/5S, iPad air, iPod classic, iPod touch 5th gen, Moto X, Samsung S3, Samsung Galaxy tablets and Garmin GPS.
I would like to take it to off road sometimes since the insert part concerns me the most.
I like to give two thumbs up for New Trent. (Posted on 12/27/13)
My New Favorite Car Charger Review by JS
I have been using the New Trent NT81T dual-USB charger for about a week and half. So far, it has successfully any and all devices plugged into it, with no problems charging multiple higher amp devices like tablets.

It has been used with the following products:

- iPhone5 (2012)
- iPhone5S (2013)
- iPad 2 (2011)
- Nexus 7 (2012)

The iPad 2 and Nexus 7 are my two most power-hungry devices. The NT81T charged both of them at the same time. The iPad was plugged into the "A" port and the Nexus into the "B" port. One of the things I like about the charger is both ports output 2.1A. This means that devices that only require 1.0A or less (like phones, ebook readers, etc.) typically charge faster because of the higher output. Another advantage is you don't have to think "Well, which port do I plug this into?", as both ports' output is the same.

Overall, very pleased with the NT81T. It is now my preferred car charger and replaced all of my other ones. Prior to getting the NT81T, my family had to carry multiple chargers – one for phones and another for tablets. (Posted on 12/24/13)
