Plug this very compact, high quality USB charger into your auto, boat or RV lighter to quickly charge cell phones, MP3 players, iPods and most other USB devices on the go!
I only used this item for a couple of months and it died on me. I would not recommend buying this item.
Set this up in my Honda Element so I could just leave my phone charging when I drive back a forth to work. LG has this little intential "buy only insanely overpriced authorized LG accessories" thing that detects a certain resistance between certain lines to identify their own hardware so it charges slower than it otherwise would, but I expected that. Ditching the always in the way coiled cord of the original charger was worth it.
Nice charger very small doesnt stick out... lights up a nice blue glow
Great little adaptor! I like it so much I'm getting a few more!
works well in the car... can even close the ashtray... glows blue... neat surprise and handy in a dark car at night.
Handy little charger. Seems to work well.
The distance between the tip and flange is very short. The tip did not contact the + in my Accord, front socket but it did work in the glove box socket. It also will not work in an MPD brand inline lighter socket. It should probably be 1/16 to 1/8" longer.
I purchased 5 of the Compact 5VDC USB Mobile Chargers and have owned them for about a month. For the price I could afford to put one in each car and still have a spare in case one fails. My wife and two children travel nearly 2 hours daily to get to their cheer gym and they have been using one of the chargers heavily as they take turns charging each of their phones daily. Everything works as expected. The light is bright to the point of annoying, which causes me to unplug it when not in use. The 800mA power output is enough to charge the average phone in a reasonable amount of time and may let you run a phone with low charge while connected, but for many of the devices with higher power demand, such as the iPad, a charger with 2 Amp capability for quick charging or plug in operation with low battery is recommended. This device is able to charge most any USB rechargeable device, but may have long charge times for those requiring the higher current. Build quality is ok, but could be better, but have not had any problems with durability yet.
It installs practically flush, and looks like the car came with it from the factory ... have them in two vehicles, same in both. I've always thought the "cigarette lighter" no longer has a place in a modern automobile ... with this, it looks like your auto in fact came stock with a USB port ... nice. Oh, and no problems with quality/breakage.
As a non-smoker, I never really wanted to have a cigarette lighter in the car. And to use the 12 volt cord with a cell phone or GPS required the bulky adapter to stick out even more than the lighter. This little gizmo solves both problems. It facilitates using a standard USB cord to power any device that uses this almost universal power cable. The red led around the USB socket is pretty cool too. Great idea and very inexpensive.
It fell into pieces when removed from the packaging. The black plastic disk that retains the positive contact terminal fell off, which allowed the terminal, and the chrome trim ring to fall off. It appears that the plastic disk is supposed to be attached to the body via a heat weld, yet the contact surface area is very small, so even if the weld had been done properly, I'd expect this attachment point to fail after a while. It's inexpensive, but pointless if it doesn't stay in one piece.
