With so many gadgets now on the market that use USB charging, iPad's, Tablet's, iPod's and MP3 players, iPhone's and smartphones, handheld game consoles, e-readers and 3D glasses, charging these devices is now becoming a bit of a problem.

Most people know the problems of trying to find multiple unused electric sockets, enough space, the mess of cables, and of course, making sure you match the right chargers with the right gadgets. Desks and kitchen worktops across the globe are covered in gadgets on charge, ready for their next use. But the problem that most people are unaware of, and the main reasons you need so many different chargers are the issues of current and voltage.

Many people know it is important to match voltage of a power supply or charger to the product. The product will often say 5V DC. It is important that 5V DC is applied to the product.If too many too many volts are applied e.g 12V you will almost certainly destroy the product! If too few volts are applied, the product won’t work, So the the volts must be correct for a product to work.

Current is often a misunderstood concept. Current is supplied by a power supply or charger. A product (e.g an iPhone/iPad) consumes current. It will try and take as much current as it needs. So if a product requires 2.1Amps then the power supply should be able to supply 2.1Amps or more. If the power supply can supply more than 2.1Amps this doesn’t matter as the product will only take 2.1Amps. Providing less current will prevent charging or slow it down and eventually have a negative impact on the lifetime of the battery, this can be a very expensive mistake to make! So, to keep everything working at it's optimum level, it is vital to match voltage between the charger and device.

Enter the Cambrionix U8S change and sync component. Whatever device is connected, the internal database (user upgradeable via the Cambrionix firmware updater application) will ensure the correct charging profile is used, maintaining battery performance and extending battery life.
