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.

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.

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.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As other reviewers have noted, this is a pretty solid little device, and handy for charging i-stuff in the car, but my own experience with it suggests it might not be 100% reliable for all makes and models of cars, maybe 90%, depending on what you're driving. I used it fresh out of the package to charge my iPod in my 2002 Volkswagen Passat (hardly an antique), and it worked pretty good the first time, albeit with intermitten dropouts (as indicated by the iPod's power-up tweet going off a couple of times. That made me wonder if the unit was not pushed far enough into the cigarette lighter, but wiggling it in further only turned the lighter element ON!! Thankfully my hand was on the plug the entire time and I could feel it heating up unnaturally, and yanked it out early. Repeated attempts to charge the iPod in my car have been likewise hit and miss, but rather than disparage the unit, which I think is fairly decent for the price, I tested it on my parents car (an '06 Fusion) and a friends SUV (an '09 Landblaster or some such), and it appeared to work fine in all cases, with only an extra power-up tweet in the SUV. That could be an issue, since hearing a second or third tweet suggests your iPod actually stopped getting power from the charger at some point. I also wish the USB cable was a little longer, since it doesn't really reach very far into the passenger seat area, where a passenger might like to use a device while it's charging, possibly while reclining a bit, but as others have mentioned, you can substitute pretty much any cable you might already have in times of need. Still, these are relatively minor things to look out for. Otherwise, this is a pretty good unit for the price.

Plug this charger into your the 12volt accessory port in your car or boat, and you've got a pretty nice charger for devices that plug into a USB port. In other words, if you charge your iPad®, Blackberry®, iPod®, etc using a USB port that is usually part of a PC or Laptop, this will allow you to charge (most of) those same devices in using the 12 volt accessory port that most cars and larger boats and some small private planes have.

*I have only tested this with an iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano, an iTouch (1st generation, and 3rd generation), a Blackberry Tour, and an iPad (1st Generation), so its possible your experience would be different with different devices, but for the money, this would be worth a try.

My reason for 4 stars, not 5, is that the plug that goes into the port in your car, is not very large (some people like this, and some wish it was even smaller, but in my case, the port in my 2009 Honda CR-V is inside a center console and it's just a little bit hard to get it out of the port, but with just a little work it comes out fine). The other issue is that the cable is thin, so be careful, and if your port is inside your cars console like mine is, be careful not to close the console and pinch the cord, or in time, I'm guessing that would wreck it.
