While preparing to move to another city, I recently came across my very first car charger. It was the size of a brick, about as heavy, and in the middle of it was a fuse. With it, me and my ’98 Malibu were unstoppable – unless, of course, the fuse blew.

So it is with amazement and amusement I write about a product that claims to be the world’s smallest and most powerful car charger. The reVOLT and reVOLT Dual by SCOSCHE offers 12 watts of power sitting flush in your car’s power socket.

Ugh. Revolting
Ugh. Revolting

[This post has been updated to reflect the fact that Scosche’s reVOLT charger only comes with two ports]

There seems to be some discrepancy in talent between the naming and the product departments at Scosche: the former can come up with a product name like “reVOLT pro h2,” and the latter with a product like, well, the product inside the package with “reVOLT pro h4” written on the outside. Revolting nomenclature aside, the pro h2 is a charger which can juice up to two iPads at the same time, via its duo of 10W (2.1A) USB ports.
