Anyway, I had bought this product a couple of years ago, still working perfectly. This review is more about the seller than the product.

It is a very small form factor. Diameter of about 2.75" and about 3/8" thick. It has a rubber ring on both sides to keep the unit from sliding around as well as keeping phone/tablet in place. It comes with two micro B usb cables. One is short (a little over 12" long) and another that is longer (about 54"). It does NOT include the power AC adapter.
The unit has a small dimly lit LED that illuminates green when not being used and turns blue when it is charging. The LED is not especially bright and would therefore not be a problem if using it next to your bed.
When you place your phone or tablet on the charger it makes a beep to let you know that it made correct contact. There is not really any sweet spot, in that, I can more or less randomly center my phone on the pad and it will connect. There is no measuring and trying to get it "just right". It's really not that difficult to figure out how to place a phone on the charger. The beep that it makes is not very loud at all and is nice to have a reassurance of correct contact. If I have the tv on low volume in my bedroom and I place my phone down, I sometimes can't hear the beep. The only time it beeps is when I put my phone on it for charging.
It seems to be slightly slower charging than plugging the USB into my phone or tablet but I wouldn't consider it a major decline in overall charge times. I have a Nexus 5 phone and I use the included charger rated @ 1.2Amps. I think this charges at around 1 Amp. So, not a huge decline in my opinion. It's difficult to judge how much longer it takes to charge my tablet, mainly because it has a larger battery and I really don't want to waste time figuring it out. Much like I don't want to watch paint dry or grass grow.
Overall, I am very pleased with this charger and I own two of them in which they both work exactly the same.
Here is the ugly part... Not all of these chargers are the same. The first one I ordered was a true legitimate Powerbot charger. I bought the black on black charger...Great charger and I couldn't be happier.
I then ordered (what I thought) was the same charger from the same seller. I ordered the yellow on black charger thinking that "Hey, I like yellow. Let's mix it up a little." What I received was a cheap knock off of the real thing. First, it didn't come in the same packaging and nowhere did it say it was made my Powerbot. Not on the charger, not on the packaging, nowhere. The charger DID charge my devices but it was painfully slow. It did NOT beep when contact was made and while this is ok with my phone (I can see the LED) it was huge pain with the tablet. Peering under the tablet to see if contact was made and the LED changed color. Made it a total pain to figure out if the device was actually charging or not...did I mention this was incredibly slow? The LED changed from a solid color to a bright blinking light that was super annoying on my nightstand. I returned this cheap imitation the next day and ordered a legit charger.
According the product listing (and I noticed this could change from hour to hour) were the different model colors that are available...black, white, red, orange, blue, etc.... The only true legitimate charger made 100% by powerbot are the black on black, the red on black and the blue on black. All others are NOT real. If your look @ the eyecandis website you will only see the 3 available colors they make. Again, all others are cheap knockoffs.
Like others have said, ensure you only order the REAL PowerBot units. It's pretty obvious which are legit when you compare the logo on the different colored units. For example, the black on black is genuine. The yellow ... not so much.
