Yeah… Maximum charging rate is what I get from Roidmi 2S thanks to high-quality DC/DC master control chip designed by AnaNaviTek. Yup, that’s the result that I get while charging both Onda V820w tablet and iPad 3. Same apply to all my other mobile devices including Windows, Android and iOS.

Navigation broadcasting is another plus from Roidmi 2S. Don’t limit yourself from the speaker from your smartphone and missed out the route. Enjoy louder and clearer navigation guidance through car’s stereo. Checking car battery voltage is one of the features that I love. Yes, never run out of battery juice with Roidmi 2S again. It will check your car battery voltage through the application automatically. And will alert you when the voltage is below normal level. Never miss your work or any important stuff again with depleted battery, right?
Hands-free mode is very useful for those receive calls a lot while driving. I can hear others’ voice loud and clear through car’s stereo. However, people have issue to hear me sometimes as the car charger socket is far from my voice range. Besides this minor problem, Roidmi 2S is not compatible with straight-through type cigarette lighter socket which happened that my Honda City has. Another adapter is required in order to use Roidmi 2S on incompatible vehicles.
