Style Name: Car Charger Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a sensibly engineered car charger for your iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. Probably works on anything with a dock connector, but I can't test that. Might even work on anything with a USB connector, such as a Kindle, but I can't test that.

Three good things:

1) The USB cable is separate, so you can substitute another cable if it breaks down, or if you want to try charging something with a USB cable that doesn't have a dock connector.

2) The cigarette lighter plug is small and nearly less flush with the well, so it doesn't stick up and get in the way.

3) The cable is black, so it doesn't stand out against a car's dark interior. This could be a disadvantage if you have trouble finding things, but I see it as an advantage.

So: a simple item that works and is well-designed. I'd pay my own money for it if I hadn't received it via Vine.

Highly recommended if it fits your needs.

This works well as a car charger. I had other chargers I could hook my iPad into the USB slot on them but apparently they did not generate enough power. This one does and works very well.

Delivery was propmt. It was packaged in a plain transparent plastic wrapper. It was not as what I expected since this is a Targus brand. I was expecting a more decent packaging specially for the price I paid. What's more disappointing is when I opened the item I tried the Ipad cable first. I connected it to my Ipad 2 and to my laptop. My Ipad was not detected. So tried it with supplied power adapator and still it did not charge. I got my spare Ipad cable and tried it on the charger, the momment I plugged it in charging immediately started. Problem isolated I got a defective cable. I did tried it again for several times but to no avail. For me it's not worth the price I paid for. My expectation for this brand Targus is quite high and was not met.

I purchased this charger as a travel one for my Ipad 2 and it works great! It is dual voltage (for international travel), had a folding plug (great for traveling), and has a LED indicator to show that it is working. The cable that came with it is a full cable that can be used with the computer for data transfer (not just a power cable). Great and speedy service also.

Style Name: Car Charger Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This car charger works on all our houses iDevices which include the iPhone4, iPhone3GS, iPhone3G, iPod Nano. It is very nice and compact. When plugged in to the car without the cable attached it is nearly flush the dash. There is just enough space to get your fingers on it to pull it out. Without the cable in place you barely notice the plug. This is nice both aesthetically and if for safety since it is less noticeable to would be thieves. The plug has a small white/opaque light that turns on when it is charging. The included cable is just like the USB plug that you use on your computer. It is 3 feet long and black and has a slightly thicker sheath then the Apple made ones. The cord seems a little stiff at this point but, it may just be new. It does not use the older pinch release where it plugs in to your iDevice. The only potential down side to this thing is that on other car chargers I have seen there is always a way to replace the fuse that may burnout. There doesn't seem to be a way to do that in this unit. This may be a non-issue as I have never or have heard of anyone ever having to replace a fuse.

Many iPad chargers don't have sufficent amperage (wattage rating) to charge the iPad while you use it. This charger does. It seems very durable as well. The cord could be a little longer, but it is still longer then the OEM USB charge cord Apple provides.

I recommend this item.

Style Name: Car Charger Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This iPad charger is good, I like that it's slim and low profile and can stay plugged in with out sticking out at all, essentially adding a USB port to your car. Looks good... however I drive a Honda ridge line and when I plugged this in it worked fine, but there is a cover/door that covers the outlet of the truck and this charger sticks out enough to prevent the door from closing all the way which takes away from the "hidden" and "slim" look. The charger works and looks good, but I took away a star because it isn't slim enough to say plugged in. Also a minor issue, the cord is very thin. It works great but I would like to see a thicker cord.

This is a very good charger for any USB style device that needs charging. The charger portion is small and almost fits flush to the top of the charging socket it is plugged into. This means that it is out of the way and you do not have an inch or more of the body of the charger sticking out over the console of your car. The flush design is nice as I have multiple charging sockets in my vehicle like one inside the console that I don't want to have a charger protruding from. The USB connection on the car plug allows you to use the cable that comes in the kit to charge your Apple products. In addition you can use any USB charging cable to charge your other devices that you own as long as they use 5 VDC and less than 2.1 Amps.

This charger will charge an Apple iPad 2 or the new one, and also very quickly charges an iPad first generation, iPhone or iPod. It has the charging capability of 2.1 Amps which is 2.1 times more power than the standard 1 amp required for an iPhone or iPad. This means you get a fast recharge time and you are back into business. When you arrive at your destination your devices are fully charged and ready to go even though you may have been talking on the phone during the trip. We use this on multiple devices but to give you an idea of the power, it charges our iPhones about 1% per minute so even if you are on a short trip to the store and your phone is low it is worthwhile to plug it in and get a quick charge.

I have purchased a lot of Targus products and I am always impressed with the quality of the items I have purchased. There are a lot of knockoffs out there and I suggest buying a name brand you can trust. We actually own two of these and we use them every time we travel. I recommend it to you as a good product.
