Default Sosche Car Charger

So this looks promising. Anyone used this for their phone? The only thing that worries me is the 2.1a output. Will the 3D throttle it down to the 1.5a (or 1.0a, I don't remember what the max is) or will I fry my phone/battery?

I'm thinking about coupling this with a car dock.

I use my HP Touchpad 2A charger to charge my Evo 3D and according to batter monitor widget my charge rate max out at 1100ma, usually in the 900s

there's also a VERY VERY similar charger by Griffin, Powerjolt Dual Micro that's been out forever, that one output 1A per port only, beware that majority of the Ebay one are counterfeit but it work just fine, Frankly i have a legit griffin (from best buy) and a fake ebay one, and I seem to think the ebay one give me a better charge!

Seems like an overpriced car phone charger.

I couldn't find it on their sites but what is the point of the app?

Sosche makes a good product and I like the LED on it. It's there but not overbearing and doesn't seem to be blinding for night driving like the yellow ring on my Sprint charger (before it burned out).

No idea on the app but I like the charger because of how discreet it is. Plus I need one with 2 ports and a 2 port one from Sprint is around 35 bucks last I checked, and they're chunky.
