Had to remove

  • By Joe from Valparaiso IN USA on Thursday, March 03, 2016
  • Review: After cutting a hole and installing the product which seemed like a very nice product I was informed by my A&P that we cannot use this. He said the FAA has been cracking down on items like this because it is not acceptable. I'm sure the component would've worked just fine but my A&P said it has to have a heat sink attached to it for fire prevention and overheating. So I removed it and I'll have to order a different component.

Great device except for one thing...

  • Pros: Nice design for panel mounting
  • Cons: Too low of output current for iPad Air2
  • Review: If you use an iPad Air 2, it demands 12W, or 2.4A at 5V. If you use the 2.1A charger, it will not keep up with the battery charging. It will slow the discharge, but eventually, it will not keep up with demand and your battery will go dead.
    Do NOT try to parallel these chargers, they are very simple regulators that are not designed for current sharing.
    We need a new product, don't you think?
