Hey party people. This week I'll be reviewing a USB car charger. I received the charger for free from Achoro through Tomoson (click here if you want to check Tomoson out and try tons of free products). Click here if you want to see Achoro's other products.
That being said, I also tried this out for a phone, and it does charge a little faster for that. On the same trip I plugged my phone into my car USB charger (the port that comes standard in most cars) and that charged at about 1% per hour while being used (google maps). The Achoro car charger charged the phone at about 1% per minute, so it was faster than just plugging it into the car, but I didn't try all the ports since my main concern was charging my Switch (charging my phone was more or less to determine if the product was defective).
Other downsides to this are the fact that it doesn't come with any instructions (it has two USB ports and another third port, and I have no clue what that third port is for), and also it doesn't come with a carry case. Not having instructions is important, since the three ports are labeled differently, which leads me to believe they have separate uses, so knowing what they're for is vital. The Amazon page briefly touches on the different types, but doesn't say much about the third port so I'm still lost to that and instructions would have been nice. Plus, when I was trying to start using this I couldn't get on Amazon (being on the road and all, didn't want to be too distracted) so I had to figure it out on the fly. The carry case would have just been nice.
Here is the package/box it came in. This was all I received. No box with signage or anything, just plain cardboard. It did come with protective wrap though.
So, I can't recommend this product as a Nintendo Switch charger, as it did absolutely nothing for that. If you need a faster car charger, then this should be okay. Also understand that it's possible I used the wrong port for my phone, since it didn't come with instructions I'm not sure if it was used properly. Still, if you are interested in buying click here.
