Rated 3 out of 5 by from Charges OK, but doesn't stick in jack wellThe "2.1A" output doesn't seem to charge as fast as a home charger rated at 1.5A, but I could be mistaken - need to measure. It's certainly way more powerful than a 0.5A PC outlet, so perhaps it's really up to spec.More of a concern is the fit of the plug body into a car jack. Perhaps it's a bit narrower in order to fit well into generally smaller US lighter jacks (12V size A, according to German Wikipedia), but in our made-in-USA VWs, it does not sit well. The tip seems to be very well sprung compared to the weak side springs, and manages to push the adapter out with driving over time or quickly if the plugged-in cable is moved.I bought two, and they are marginal as described in two identical cars, so it's not a defect.Perhaps wrapping with some vinyl tape will help. I haven't tried it yet; owning this item and making it work is not my full-time job. I have one already. If this takes too much rigging to make it work, it's going back. But then, it's worked more than it hasn't, so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for an iPhone 5s in our carsBought it in store from my friends recommendation.I was skeptical because of the low price and using my own lightening cord.But it's worked on two trips from Ohio to Florida keeping the iPhone charged while streaming XM.I liked the blue LED on it.I'm ordering a few more for all our cars.I just priced these at a Target and a similar one was $25 and sold out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice price but poor qualityI purchased 4 and the three that I tried burned up with loud pops soon after plugging in. The device is advertised with a rating of 12-24 VDC input. I attempted to power a device from a power wheelchair. The first one blew immediately. the second and third power on properly but as soon as the device moved in the socket the charger short circuited.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Compact&InexpensiveOK, but doesn't stay plugged in. It needs something to increase friction in the socket.

Parts Express Dual-Port USB Car Charger Adapter for Apple iPhone iPad iPod & Android Devices

can you use the dual port USB car charger adapter be used to charge 2 iphones at the same time, or is the higher powered one too high for an iphone?

Asked by: Mecmaine
This will charge two devices at the same time. The higher power output only means it has higher current draw capability for larger devices. Since the device only draws the current that it needs this will not be a problem.

Does anyone know where to find USB faceplates?

I want to buy a charger like this one and use it on a 12v boombox. However, I want to mount it on the wood panel, and I also want it to look presentable. Does anyone know where to locate a faceplate that would work with a dissected specimen of the above charger?
Asked by: FrontierKodiak
You have a couple options.Option 1:You could make a PCB with the USB connnectors on it with a 5volt regulator (PE# 7805) and perhaps PNP power transistor (PE#s TIP147 or NTE2344, etc) for more amperage. Then mount USB A connectors (PE#s 320-247, 320-248, 320-251). Then cut slits for the usb cable connection.Option 2:You could use this connector. Normally the car chargers are held together with a screw or two. Take out the screws, the face plate should come right off, then modify the case to fit your mounting needs. For example drill a hole in the wood that will fit this snugly. Insert and glue.Option 3:PE sells panel mount USB connectors(PE#s: 092-278, 092-279) usually meant for dishes(PE#s: 262-028, 262-334, 262-348, 262-838, etc). You could either use stand alone or buy dishes to give a pro audio feel to your boom box. Be aware that they are USB A (normal) to USB B (typically a printer type) connectors. PE also carries these cables (PE#s: 130-047, 139-080).Option 4:Look for a laser cutting service online. It is really awesome service. You find one of the many materials (Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Derlin, Acrylic, Styrene, Silicone, Melamine finished MDF, Plywoods, Veneer MDF, plain MDF, Bamboo, Hardboard, Cork, and Leather, Cardstock, Felt & Cardboard), pick a size, upload your design with cuts, mounting holes(vectors), and engraving(raster). They then make your design and send it to you for a reasonable price. Voilâ, you have your own custom USB face plate, or control panel.Option ∞Actually the options really are limitless. I have only touched on a few. Look all over the place for solutions. You might be surprised where and how you find ideas for control design.Best of luck☺
