Charge multiple platform devices at once with the Qmadix USB Mobile Duo kit - Enter to win!

Qmadix Mobile Duo

"Like many families, mine is a multi-platform mobile device household. Thankfully there are chargers like the Qmadix USB Mobile Duo for the car that keep our batteries full."

In Short:
"I love that it’ll work with any USB cable."

Should I Buy?
"There are cheaper versions out there without the cables."
BUY NOW

Picture a 16 hour car trip with your Blackberry device, a spouse and his iPhone 4s, two teenagers both with BlackBerry devices, iPods and gaming consoles. Now add to the mix a four year old that refuses to sit in a car for longer than 15 minutes without her DVD player on or my BlackBerry PlayBook in her hand. Usually this wouldn’t be a bad thing. Everyone is occupied with a device and the car ride is pretty peaceful. The problem starts when devices start the low battery warning all at the same time and my SUV only has 3 power outlets. Welcome to my personal nightmare. The husband and I fight over who charges their phone first, one teenager and the four year old bicker because to charge his devices he’d have to unplug her DVD player and one teenager in the back enjoying an outlet all to herself. Keep reading for the review.

The Review

With several of the Qmadix Mobile Duo charging kits I can use the included cables to charge my BlackBerry and the hubby’s iPhone at the same time. With one in the back, the kids can use one it to plug in any of their USB cables to charge whatever device is running low and without disturbing the 4 year old and her movies.

Kit Contents
Kit Contents:

  • USB Dual Mobile Charging Hub
  • iPhone/iPod Charging-Data Sync Cable
  • USB Charging-Data Sync Cable

Multi-platform charger
Features:

  • Provides up to 2.1 amps for quick charging
  • Sonically sealed, rugged polycarbonate
  • Advanced smart circuitry to prevent overheating/overcharging

The USB Mobile Duo Charging Kit usually retails for $34.99 ($29.95 at ShopCrackBerry.com). For me, who has owned several Qmadix products, it’s worth it. I’ve never had an issue with the cables going bad or not working and the hub fights tightly in all of the power outlets I’ve tried them in.

USB Mobile Duo Charging Kit
by Qmadix

The Good

If you own multiple platform devices or just have to charge more than one device at a time, this is the perfect accessory. No need to remember to bring the cables with you since the kit comes with two already!

The Bad

There are cheaper dual chargers available so some may balk at the $29.95 price tag.

 

 

Conclusion

I love this kit! Even when it’s just me in my SUV, I can charge both my PlayBook and my 9930 so both are ready when I need them. With the Qmadix USB Mobile Duo charging kit, no device will be left uncharged!

We also have different phones (BLACKBERRY & iPhone) so this will come in handy especially when using BB Maps on 3G while driving.

With everyone in my family having a multitude of gadgets, and only 2 outlets in my vehicle, ........... need I say anymore?

Could have used this last week when I was travelling. I was trying to watch a live stream of my wife's volleyball team compete for a high school championship but both my PlayBook and my cell phone batteries were about to die and I only had one car charger - they died before the end of the match. If I had one of these chargers that would not have occurred. I would like to win one of these chargers.

Man! I'm in the same situation as you! We have 2 iPad 2s, 3 iPhones, a Blackberry 9900 and a Blackberry Playbook! I really need one of these!

Throwing my hat in the ring. I am on the road all day and always need to keep the back of my mind what my device battery levels are. This kind of charger would make things a whole lot more convenient.

My best friend just moved to Calgary (and I live in Winnipeg) This Charger would be so incredibly handy when we go on a road trip to visit him! Now everyone in the car could have some juice to keep all their devices charged! Please?

With an upcoming trip to Myrtle Beach, SC including at least three adults and a 4 year old; this would be really helpful.

This would solve the problem with me and my fiancee fighting over who gets to charge their phone in the car! Pure genus! Please crackberry hook me up and end this long war!

I don't have a car but maybe I can use it with my friend's car especially when we travel this summer. Give me one please.:)

This would be awesome to have in the car since I am limited on charging spots. Also, awesome case on your Bold. Pick me please!

Thank you!
I've tried at least 5 different chagers to charge my Playbok in the car, and none have worked. Most barely could charge my 9900.

This spring we're going to be driving across the state to visit my in-laws and my hubby and I each have a BlackBerry phone and a Playbook so having a Qmadix USB Duo kit would be sweet! Please pick me...

Would love this for my road trips my 4 and 8 year olds have just taken my Playbook from so it would come in handy to to keep it going on long trips

Please put my name in the Hat.

also, why do all these "Buy Now" links never work? they just take you to the main shop page and not to the product. frustrating!!

Please pick me. I am constantly on the road with both my Playbook and BB Torch. Could really use something like this!! Thanks

I like the high amperage output you get with this device. With all of our mobile devices using more and more power, this is more important than ever.
Thanks CrackBerry for the contest and i would love to win one of these devices.

With 2 kids, my wife and myself all with devices to be powered, this would really come in handy. The cat's meow, as we used to say...

Pretty please?

OMG! I would love to have this! I have the PlayBook and the Z10 and I wouldn't have to use 2 charging cords.

The cross platform charging ability is very important these days. If I were to win, I would gladly give a fair, and honest review. Ignoring the fact that I just WON it!!!! If possible.

Posted via CB10
