4.0 out of 5 stars Works great, as long as you can accept its faults, January 7, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kensington K39224US PowerBolt Micro Car Charger for iPad, iPhone and iPod, including iPhone 4 (Personal Computers)
I purchased the Kensington PowerBolt for a long car trip with the family to power both my iPad and iPhone 4 as they got low. For that purpose it works great, no complaints charging either device. My only gripes with the product lie in two places - the Cable and the size of the plug. The cable is a great length, but it is very thick/stiff (much more so that Apple's included cables). While this might add to durability, the stiffness ends up becoming an annoyance if you try to use your Apple device while charging. The other issue lies in the actual charger's size. If you plan to keep the charger in permanently, its great as it sits nearly flush with the outline of the cigarette lighter; however, if you plan to take the charger in and out, its a bit of a challenge if your fingers aren't too nimble. Both I and my parents had a difficult time removing the charger from the cigarette lighter on multiple occasions. We did eventually get it out each time, but its something to keep in mind - its diminutive size can be an issue. Overall though, the product works as expected and I am happy with my purchase.

Pros:
+ Charges quickly
+ Good build quality
+ Good price

Cons:
- Stiff charging/usb cable
- A bit TOO small (difficult to remove from lighter)
