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.
Right tool , right job. Thought I had a charging issue with my power outlets. Turned out it was bad plug in units . Ordered the proper ones, problem fixed.
10 out of 10. Works great and no static.
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.
I had previously submitted a 2 star review. Spruce advised that the unit was still warrantied and that theyd handle the replacement for me. New MGF unit arrived via mail a week later. 5 stars for Aircraft Spruce customer service and kudos to MGF for standing behind their product.

Was trying to avoid using a cheap Chinese USB adapter to charge ipad in airplane Bought this unit thinking it would be better (2 USB ports 2.4A each, 12 and 24V capable) built for aviation use. Worked great for about a year. Recently became intermittent, then died completely. This adapter IS made in China. Replaced it with a $6 unit from auto store and will just carry spares MGF USB charger plug not worth $40!
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.
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.
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.
