Picked up a set last week but haven't opened it. Any first hand reviews on these?

Picked up a couple from Gatineau as well. Works as good as a regular USB outlet.
money can sometimes buy happiness.

It's a pretty basic product. I've had a set in operation at my house (one in the kitchen and one by my bedside table) for a year or 2 and haven't had any issues with either of them.

I bought one of these when it was bundled with 2 of the smaller, 2 outlet/2 USB units and all was good until about a month in, the USB light started flashing red/green/red/green, then nothing. Haven't worked since. The 6 outlets are fine, but the USBs are pooched.

Have a bunch of these around the house. They're good. No complaints. It's a pretty basic product but it does what it's supposed to do.

So the link shows $23.99 with a $5 off and OOS. OP saying then the price in-store is only 14.99 for the 2-pack?

Yup online is pricier. But in store is cheaper. Like the title say. ;)

Great for basic charging as someone else stated. I expected fast charging when I read the 4.2A but that's the cumulative MAX output when all being used. I tested it to confirm and recorded a max output of 1.37A on the first port tested. I tried again and saw a peak of 1.41A but it wasn't sustained. The average seems to be around 1.32A so it's still good. I'll be returning mine unfortunately. I hope this helps some of you.

Happy hunting!

I have about 5 throughout the house, they are great imo and picked up another pack the other day. 2 chargers for $15 is a good deal imo

I also have the big + 2 small pack. Still going strong after more than 6 months. The only knock on it is how close they pack the 6 outlets together. Would probably buy this pack if I come across it, you can't beat this price!

Are you saying it doesn't have quick charge?

No QC on this, would say Qualcomm QC (2.0 / 3.0) if it did.

I think he was hoping for more Amps from one port, but instead maxes out at 1.3A each.

How do you test output? A device? An app?

I used an app called Ampere version 3.27 by Braintapp which seems very accurate
