I was skeptical about purchasing this item as I read a review of one who said it didn't work. I'm happy to say that it works for me, it's very simple to use and compact. I'd love to give it 5 stars but I need a little more time to see the longevity of it. A suggestion to any user, get yourself an extra cord to keep in your car, we all know the cords that charge our phones can become fragile after handling them too often. Keep one in the car and one in the house. With a few days in my possession I'm currently satisfied.
