I've got two votes for Anker now, you and DECIM8. I'm really leaning towards that one.

I have no idea why mine works well and the Kennington is not. Although, it's possible it not outputting the 5v, which would mean you got a bad charger, it may be about the pin triggers. I forget about the Apple and Android charger differences. I just know I have both the dual port car and wall chargers from the same company and work well. They outpout 5v 2.1A on each port. They work on the GN2, Kyocera 810G (cellphone's at work). They work, as a trickle charger for my ASUS Infinity Pad tablet, which needs 2.1A at 15v. They charge as well as the OEM wall charger. The OEM cable went to crap, so I repleaced it was a monoprice premium USB cable.

So the Kennington charger work at all? If you connect the phone and leave it (screen off, no touching, or phone off(, say an hour, does the battery amount increase? If no charge, or a small amount, say 1 to 5%, then the pins are matching (no charge) or the output on the charger is not matching what the phone needs. It may not be a bad idea to change the charging cable to compare.

I returned the Kensington one already. I ended up assuming that the Kensington has one apple port and Android port, and it is not labeled as such. Because one port would give me the 1200 with screen on and the other only 450

Default usb port must be coded

If you want full power AC charge you must code the usb output with some resistor.

I have tell how on link.

My nick is eprom on that forum. Find the post #428 with two big photos of electronic boards and look for the usb port coding. If your charger capable of giving 2 amperes it will charge with full power. On my battery pack, it can only deliver max 1.4 ampere so i can get max of 1.4 ampere.
