Firstly, I am an electrical engineer and I thought I did my homework before ordering two of these chargers. This product looks well made, however it got pretty warm when I charge my iPhone 6 (keep in mind that it is a dual charger, and I was only charging one iPhone), but I did not think too much about it. Yesterday, it got so hot when I tried to charge a single iPad, it melted/deformed the housing. I feel very lucky that it did not catch fire. It is apparently not properly designed. I think the manufacturer overrated it's power ratings and I'll advise not to purchase this product.
I have used these to charge Android phones and iPads alike. They work fine. My devices charge as expected, I see no signs of damage to my products. These don't feel hot to the touch, they don't melt or burn my house down. They haven't started a 3rd World War.
Overall, they work great for me. I'm not sure why some others are having issues with theirs melting, that's nuts.
Initially, I was happy with this product. It charged my iPad 4, iPad mini and iPhone 6's just fine. After a few months, there were times when it was too hot during charging as noted by other reviewers.
Then one day, it just stopped working. I expected better quality.
