In for one. I've been meaning to setup a charging station in my closet, so this should do nicely.

I really doubt it since it does not have a QC 2.0 for Note 4. It may charger at a higher speed using 2.4 Amp but not QC 2.0 speed.

The company wishes to sell its product. It gives It for free/cheap to reviewers who will then inflate its score with 5s. It then contacts SD, and gives them a coupon code that they can post. SD posts the deal. Either the company or SD uses shill accounts to give the deal a bunch of TUs and favorable fake comments, so the deal is promoted to FP. SD receives kickbacks from Amazon when you purchase the item. I suspect they also receive kickbacks from the company (either on a per coupon use basis or for each product SD promotes to FP). The product sells like hot cakes and gets ranked as #1 selling in X category. The coupon expires and now you have a product that is listed as top selling and has impeccable reviews. Now other people on Amazon who don't read the reviews carefully (or who believe in "unbiased" reviews), purchase the product for much more than it is actually worth. Rinse and repeat with the next item.

That basically summarizes a large % of the deals on this site. This doesn't make the deal inherently bad. It just bypasses the basis on which SD was built, ie user submission and user promotion.

More SDers need to post their authentic experiences on Amazon.

The top review for this product gave it 2 stars on the grounds that it only delivers 58% of advertised current. I suppose if that is important to you, this is not a deal.

That's not entirely true. I own this product and it gives up to 2.4A per port as the tech specs indicate. I have tested it with multiple high A devices using my PowerJive [amazon.com] and various Android apps and it worked fine. The highest A output (cumulative) I tested was around 10.5A I believe. It does get a bit warm, like some of the other reviewers have mentioned, but that's my only complaint.

If you read the responses to that negative review, this one [amazon.com] is pretty accurate in terms of what I believe to be happening.

Also, the reason it is the "top review" on this product is because competitors most likely logged in to their Amazon accounts and clicked the "Yes" this was helpful button on the worst reviews for this item. I have seen that happen a lot, especially on Lightning Cables and other power products, where pricing is competitive. One time, someone posted pictures of a cable literally falling apart... looked like it had been ran over by something, and said it was poorly constructed. There were like 150+ "helpful" votes for it. Definitely seemed fishy.

Am I saying that all of the reviews on this item are authentic? Probably not. Not every reviewer will take the time and effort to thoroughly analyze the products they are testing and just give it high marks. However, you can definitely see some people put it through the paces. I think you'll find a lot of review samples given out when companies don't have the brand recognition as Anker and others. If they didn't give them out, there would be no reviews and no sales so it's kind of par for the course.
