    Default Dual USB Port Wall Charger Recommendations?

    I have the wall charger that came with my iPhone 6 but would like to upgrade to a dual USB port wall charger so I can top off my phone and charger simultaneously, minimizing plug time.
    The ideal unit would maximize output, have shortest charge time and the lightest weight.
    Which ones do y'all use?
    Thanks!

    My daughter had a 4 outlet USB strip that she got from Amazon. All I can say is that it works for she and her 3 children. It was certainly light.

    I have an older non-descript 2 port wall charger that weighs next to nothing...but that one is no longer available.

    I did receive a Nooqee 4-port, USB wall charger for Christmas. I have used it for travel, but not for backpacking. It weighs in at 3oz, and is probably not the lightest, but it does a great job of charging things. This also gives you a place to start for weights... You may try looking up this company to see if they have something that better suits your needs - it will also most likely be lighter in weight. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...c505695b19ce79

    I got one of these and while it's a full 4.1 ounces (actual weight, not advertised) I really like it. It is QC 3.0 capable and also has the Anker Smart IQ feature so it charges very fast.

    +1 on this, I've got it also. Both USB ports deliver 2.4A, charged my iPhone and BlackBerry at the same time pretty quick. One less charger to take on business trips, lightened that load. Bought it with an Anker 10000mAh external battery. Been happy all around.

    This would be helpful on the A.T. When stopping at a town location, plugs are at a premium now!

    The other thing to consider is the length of the USB cord, longer is better. Then you can use outlets up high and also not have to try and squeeze you phone in right where everyone else is trying to get to. Handy so you can still use your phone too when charging in motel rooms etc
    I carry two x 1metre cords.
