So you just splurged on a new Clarisonic, LED light therapy device, Epilator, or massaging facial brush cleansing system. Congratulations! Most of these devices require an initial charging for 8-16 hours before the first use. Notice something unusual about your new beauty tool? Many of these beauty devices now charge with USB ports instead of the traditional electric plug. This is a handy advent, but it made us notice a problem: not all USB chargers are created equal.
When I excitedly charged my first USB enabled beauty gadget, I found my generic, no-name USB charger got fairly hot to the touch when it was plugged in for more than an hour. I never noticed this when using it just long enough to charge my iPhone or tablet, but it sure worried me to charge my brand new expensive LED light therapy system on a generic USB charger that now seemed somewhat dodgy. I didn’t trust this generic USB port to be left plugged in while I was out of the house at work for 16 hours or leave it charging my new LED Light Therapy System overnight.
So I was pleased to hear about the IntelliARMOR 4 Port Wall Charger because it is sturdy, fast, portable, and kinda cute. The IntelliARMOR name may sound familiar because they make those rugged screen protectors that can save an accidentally dropped phone from a cracked screen disaster. This four port charger can handle not only the heftier electrical draw of charging beauty devices but also tablets, Kindles, phones, and iPods.
As a trusted brand, I feel comfortable leaving my various tech and beauty gadgets on this IntelliARMOR USB port whether it needs a longer initial charge or a super fast recharge just to “top it off” before use. The IntelliARMOR port is a small but powerful portable charger that can handle multiple types of tech devices. I notice with some generic brand name USB chargers that tend to stop working after a while, and I am reluctant to use a questionable generic USB charger on an expensive item such as an LED light therapy device.
The IntelliARMOR It is a sturdy but slimline plug that takes up a small amount of room on a strip or the wall, so that does not obscure adjacent outlet plugs. There are no loose or wiggly pieces. The plug prongs fold for portability, so it fits in my bag or laptop case for quick use on multiple devices at home, work or while traveling.
The most impressive thing about this charger is it is FAST. Often I forget that my tablet, Kindle, or phone needs a charge until about 30 minutes before leaving the house, yet this charger gives a full charge very quickly, even when I am simultaneously charging four devices at once. It is four times faster than other chargers.
I also like that it can charge multiple device types ranging from my Kindle to my iPhone and iPad, and my various beauty devices all at once. I now use this charger for my Kindle, my iPad, my Samsung Galaxy Tablet, my iPhone, and my old classic iPod that I like to use during an active workout at the gym.
