Nice device, fast charging is a nice idea, but it should be made very clear this can and will completely rape lithium batteries if you fast-charge them too often and can and will (worst case scenario) cause them to expand/overheat and/or explode the device they are in.

Chucking 4500ma into a device rated for 500ma charging (that's 9 x the rated charge speed in some cases) isn't always a very good idea! The Note 3 charges is only 2amps so it'd be over double on that! (if you don't believe me, look up LiPo explosions on youtube, that can burn your house down!)

good thinking sub. i almost pooped with excitement until you mentioned the overcharging. that could be the reason my s3 battery life has went to crap (checks for distortions) as i use an ipad charger to juice it faster. im a flipping plonker.
