2.0 out of 5 stars Cant charge and use my iphone, July 20, 2010
This review is from: iGo Universal Car Charger for use with iGO Power Tips (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I was on a long conference call while sitting in a parking lot using my iphone 3gS connected to the iGo charger. The phone was about 25% before I started the call. Through out my call, the phone was "charging" as indicated on the iphone. As the call continued, I noticed that the battery percentage kept dropping until it dropped past 5% and then phone powered off. The only thing I can guess is that there is really not enough power coming out of these chargers for concurrent usage. I have two of these chargers. One with a green and another with a blue light when plugged in. I do not know if there is any difference between the two other than color. I was using the blue one which is newer purchase.

Same exact sequence of events happened to me yesterday....I stopped at an Apple Store on the way home and they replaced my 3gS phone (it was near end of warranty but had 60 days left). The Apple "Genius" told me that the charger was probably the cause. Though I've used this charger many, many times with iPhones without any problems until this happened.
