Belkin AC/DC Universal USB Charging Kit for Samsung and more
What is the input range on the car charger? Will it allow a lower voltage input and still output 5v?
The components are rated up to and not down to. It will out put as long as you have at least 5v input but you have to take into consideration voltage drop across the components and connections in the charger so you can safely say (hypothetically)if you have 5.01 volts you should get 5v.

What are the current outputs on the 120v and 12v units?
Standard USB output is 5VDC, 0.5 - 0.9A. While I don't have a specification on this product, I would all but guarantee the output to be within that 0.5 - 0.9A range.

Mini- or Micro- USB?
The Samsung Galaxy Android phones use micro-usb, not the slightly larger mini-usb. It this the smaller or the larger of the two tiny USB connectors?
This product features an older style connector for certain Samsung phones and the like. You can use any of our various and sundry USB to mini- or micro-USB cables with the plugs included here, but the cable included with this set will not fit modern smart phones.

Does it need to be modified to work with Apple products?
I have an iPod classic 80 Gig, and two clip-style shuffles, and this unit won't charge either of them. I put the volt meter on two of these units, and they both put out 5.15 volts, right on target, and the charge light comes on both iPods for about 5 seconds, then they just stop -- the light goes out, and they stop charging. This is primarily why I bought them-to charge my iPods. Also, I bought several of these thinking to give them as gifts to my family, but I don't know if they will work.Do they need to be modified to work with Apple products?I have another brand of 120 volt to USB adapter and it puts out 5V and works fine with both of my iPods.I have not yet tried the 12V cigarette lighter part of this product.
It sounds to me like you may have received a defective unit. If you have more than one, have you tried them to see if they all exhibit the same behavior? I can't imagine why they would not be compatible with your iPods, but I suppose it's within the realm of possibility. If you can determine that you do, indeed, have one or more defective units, please contact us to arrange for exchange or refund. We want you to be completely satisified any time you give us the opportunity to serve you.
