And now for something sourced locally this time : in today's video I'm putting a Niko PM420 0051 Smart USB charger an anonymous viewer dropped off through its' paces on the bench. Our mystery man wanted to know if the specs were true. So I thought I'd oblige him :)
→ Conclusion
This Niko 420-00510 Smart USB Charger performs nicely.
Not too much overhead on the specs, but total output is available on a single port, which I like.
Another nice feature is the power usage in standby, which is none, kind of important with a product connected to mains power 24/7. It does what it promises on the box, so I can't complain.

→ Information
This Niko PM420 0051 Smart USB charger was dropped off by a local viewer for the making of this video. Thanks mystery man! The support is dearly appreciated!

This charger is available for purchase at your local installation shop.

Taking a look at a ZMI Powerplug Turbo 45W USB Type-C PD Wall Charger (AD03Z) sent to me by ZMI USA for this video. They like what I'm doing on the channel and contacted me with an offer to send me something to review...
→ Conclusion
This ZMI Powerplug Turbo 45W USB Type-C PD Wall Charger achieves and exceeds the specifications on the box. They are exceeded by a bit, I have to say, with impressive numbers! Another plus is the absence of power use in standby. It’s a nice PD charger that delivers all of the power it promises in the specs and more! I hope this will be available soon with an EU plug instead of a US one.

A couple of weeks ago I received a Xiaomi Roidmi 3S smart car charger from GearBest to make a video.
It's a combo of an FM transmitter and a BlueTooth audio receiver, so you can pipe your music via BlueTooth over FM to your car stereo; really nice when your car stereo doesn't have a line-in. But, I'm not going to focus on that side of the product, plenty of videos and reviews that show how to use it. I want to know how this kajigger performs regarding output. It's also the first 12V 'cigarette lighter'-powered device I test.
So, let's find out what's what...
