The DualMicro is the top of the line DC charger for 12-28 volt systems. The USB ports on this device feature Rapid Charge technology, which allows you to fully charge 2 full-sized tablet devices in no time at all. The DualMicro supports 24 volt systems that typically output a charge of 28 volts, and are found in many aircraft. Just keep the DualMicro in your flight bag and you will always have all of the power that you need when you need it. Works with all tablets, ADS-B receivers, GPS units, iPhones, smartphones and any other USB powered device.
NOTE: For 12-35 volt DC systems.
Gets warm on my 12V system and causes tons of static on my radios. Doesnt put out enough current to charge iPad mini and Stratus 2S at the same time.
10 out of 10. Works great and no static.
Failed after 10 flights. And no it isnâ€™t the fuse! This is junk!
The few times I tried the unit it got very hot. Pulled it out the other day because the I pad was getting low. Passenger asked if he could also charge his phone. After 10 minutes I noticed the unit was dead.
This unit will not rapid charge two Apple iPads. The top port presents the Apple 12 watt protocol so it will rapid charge any iPad while ON, except the Pro 12.9. However, the bottom port presents the DCP protocol, which will probably power your ADDS-B box just fine, but wont rapid charge another iPad. The several iPads I tested on the second port did charge, but thought they were plugged into an Apple 5 watt charger and charged at 1 amp. Neither port would rapid charge my Samsung tablet.
Installed this device on a 28 volt system and within 30 minutes it stopped working. During the 30 minutes that it was installed it was not being used to charge any devices.

I used this charger on a 28 volt system. While charging my iPad Air, on 3rd flight an electrical smell became very apparent noticeable ! Toast !! Now searching for a better product !
Lasted for a short time then smoke in the cabin. Burned out!
First charger I have bought that will actually charge my IPAD (not reduce the battery usage) and at the same time also charge my Stratus unit. awesome charger.
Yes, the Dual Micro USB charger does put out those amps at all times.
The output is 2.1 amps.
This unit has a 12-28vdc input and 5vdc 2a output thru the USB ports. No voltage converters required.
No, this charger is not FAA Approved. It is considered an accessory since it is not hard wired to the aircraft. It would be similar to using the cigarette plug to charge your GPS, ie Garmin Aera 796. The cigarette jack itself that is hardwired to the aircraft would require a TSO for certified install, but what is plugged into the port does not.
