I usually try to keep my #triedituesday reviews positive. My goal is to share the very best products I’m finding. However, in this case, I’m sharing a negative review of the Amp Mobile Charger in the hope that I can save you time, money and aggravation.
I first became aware of the Amp Mobile Three-In-One Charger via an Instagram ad. I was immediately intrigued by the fact that it was a wireless charger that claimed to charge three devices simultaneously: phone, earbuds and Apple watch. The sleek design meant that both Paul and I would be able to streamline our nightstands.
After thoroughly checking out the Amp Mobile website I ordered two units on April 4, 2019 with the intention of giving the charger to Paul as an Easter gift on April 22nd. A few days after ordering, I received a message from the company that our order was delayed due to “unprecedented demand.” About a week later I received a shipping notice and was surprised to see that the unit was being shipped from China. (The company’s web site lists their address as Chicago, IL).
I did not receive the units in time for Easter, and when they finally arrived in early May they were both DEFECTIVE:
For the past few weeks, I’ve tried contacting Amp Mobile more than five times. I’ve emailed them repeatedly as well as sending a letter through the comment form on their web site. I have yet to receive a response.
Today I am returning both units to the address on the Amp Mobile web site and requesting a replacement or a refund. I’m also disputing the credit card charge. If I hear back from the company, I will update this post.
