I'm looking for a charging device that will allow you to charge more than one item from the same dock. This is primarily for microUSB, miniUSB, and USB devices (phones, tablets, etc). If it was travel friendly that would be a bonus. I've been using iGo and their tips for several years in the US but I've now moved to France and using an adapter on this US device seems to be affecting the ability of the phones to be charged quickly. In any event, it's old, has served it's time and I'd like something new. Can anyone in France recommend a new product I can look for that will not only charge more than one phone at a time but will also work when travelling (car/other countries)? Consequently, I have a power related question which is related. Is there any reason why charging via USB2.0 might be bad for devices, cables etc at all? Is it slower than a regular plug? Less effective? Does it adversely affect batteries or battery life? THANKS!!!
