USB has made it convenient to charge mobile devices, since most people also have access to a computer with an available port. But as the devices add up, those ports become scarce. This is ideal during extended travel, when battery power for items like the Apple iPad or iPhone runs low after a movie. Keeping fully charged is a challenge while traveling, since most people leave their bulky systems at home. This is where a portable USB charge adapter comes in very handy. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the travel-sized Arctic USB Charger PRO 4 Rev 2, model PSAEQ-AC01301-BL.

People love their portable electronics, and can't get escape without their phone, tablet, and digital multimedia devices in tow. We take our ebook readers with us everywhere, carry a Bluetooth wireless headset for calls on the road, and occasionally find time to take pictures with the digital camera. All of these devices require power, and when you're away from home it's hard to keep batteries charged during long trips or after prolonged use. Airports, hotels, and RVs all have power receptacles available, but most lack USB ports. Arctic Cooling offers the USB Charger PRO 4 Rev.2 (model PSAEQ-AC01301-BL) to keep your devices working while on the road, with four powered-USB ports and the ability to fast-charge at up to 2.1 amps of power.

The Arctic USB Charger PRO 4 Rev.2 is available for $29.90 directly from the Arctic eStore and elsewhere online. If you're looking for a simple and affordable update to keep your family's entertainment devices powered-up while away on trips, the Arctic USB Charger PRO 4 Rev.2 could be the perfect upgrade.

Will these cards work with other capture cards and software or just Matrox? I'm looking for an H.264 accelerator card that is not proprietary.

I purchased the Arctic Pro 2 in 2012 - within 2 months it broke, luckily I was able to replace it under warranty. The replacement broke within another 3 months.

Getting a replacement is very time consuming

I am now on my third charger - if it breaks again I will not just throw it away and buy something else.
