Coiled wire is this product's downfall,

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This charger does what it says, but the tightly coiled wire is annoying and destroys most of the utility of the device. I would not recommend this product.
The scenario when I most often need a charger for my phone is when I'm using it as a GPS. However, the coiled wire of this charger doesn't allow me to put my phone in the cradle -- causing the unsafe condition of me having to look down. Instead of coiling the wire, they should have included a velcro cable tie.
When I first received the product, the spring-loaded terminal on the top popped off from beneath the plastic screw-on cap. Luckily, I didn't lose any parts and was able to easily secure the cap again. Still, I question the quality here. You could probably find cheaper chargers that don't have coiled wires and are of comparable quality.
The additional micro-to-mini USB adapter is nice to have, but this product falls short for me.
