Original Review: This charger, along with 1/2 dozen Anker cords, has been amazing. I have 2 of the chargers. However yesterday my daughter told me the charger was draining her battery on the lower port. I knew she couldn't be correct, so today I plugged in my phone at 40%. It dropped immediately to 39%. No worries, the lightening bolt showed it was charging. Then the app I was loading kept resetting. Next I noticed the power was 38%, then 37. What?? I switched the power cord into the upper port and opened my Amazon app to see the reviews. It was interesting to see someone else felt it was resetting their phone or an app as well. It's been about 7 minutes and my phone has gone from 37 to 48% on that time using the top port. I am sure Anker will make it good, but I wanted to share this as a review in case someone else experiences the same thing. Overall I love Anker products and I will continue to buy them without question, but I expect both ports to charge. I can't say if this occurred before or if it is a new issue. Perhaps we've only used the top charger successfully, because I know we've had two phones plugged in many times.
I was able to fix my cigarette lighter port by replacing the fuse in my fuse box. Anker also got ahold of me and sent me a free upgraded replacement for the broken piece I was left with. They took the serial number from me as well stating that they trace the defective parts of their product. Good on Anker for helping me fix the issue!
Used this product for an accumulative 5 hours over two days only charging a single phone. It worked well when it did, but when I went to use it another time the light on it wouldn't turn on and it didn't supply power to my phone. Tried it in another port and the same result. Grabbed my big bulky charger to test each port and sure enough the one that I used it in doesn't work at all now, and the one it never touched when it was working is still fine.
** Original issue**
This has been the most reliable charger I have owned. Unfortunately after about 10 months of occasional use it had a melt down while I was going down the free way filling the entire car with acrid smoke, no damage to the car just a startling event.
If you want to use a navigation app on your phone while you drive, don't waste your money on this unit. You're better off grabbing a charger from a convenience store.
I haven't had time to check multiple device conditions or long term, but performance is ok.
I recommend everyone get a usb current measure device to check their chargers capability.
Doesn't charge as advertised. Says 2A 24W but this won't on my s7.
Had an s5 before and this was ok. My s7 says my phone is discharging faster than charging.
I have a current measurement usb device I bought off Amazon.
This starts at 0.8A but quickly drops to 0.3A.
5V and 0.3A is only 1.5W.
And I tried both ports and this is only 1 device plugged in.
Top international reviews
The tip of the charger isn't enough tapered and cannor reach the contact deep in the socket.
Some cars I drive it works perfectly but in some I have a hard time.

After I have left this review AnkerDirect contacted me and sent me as a gift an improved version of the charger the Power Drive 2 Elite.
They have also sent an email a few weeks later asking if the second charger worked out for me. And yes it does!
Brilliant customer service!
The only problem I have had with this is charger is when I plug in my aux cable from my phone to the car radio I hear a loud buzzing noise on the radio and it stops when I unplug the charger so I think it may be a problem with the charger (or my car). Not sure if it is because I received a faulty charger or if it is supposed to do that. I have an older Logic3 car charger which I use with the aux cable in but that doesn't make the same buzzing noise.
Overall, I love this product as it is the best charger I have used as it charges my phone (HTC One M8) reasonably fast, and I have tried other phones too and they all charge quickly and fully. I would recommend this charge to anyone who's frustrated buying chargers that don't charge their phone as expected and tired of wasting money on chargers that stop working after a few weeks or months.
I've left writing the review until I've used the product for a few months so I can comment on the quality and durability, but this has been used almost every day and is still working as if it were still new, charging my phone quickly and fully.
I have a Nexus 5x and I do get the "Charging Rapidly" sign when I plug the phone in and I can stream music from Spotify whilst using Google Maps for Navigation and my phone still charges, unlike the last car charger I had ( [Qualcomm Certified] Anker PowerDrive+ 1 (Premium 24W 1-Port USB Car Charger with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 Technology) for Galaxy Note 4 / Edge, LG G4, Nexus 6, iPhone, iPad and More (Black) )
The charger fits in my Audi A1 with no problems and the dual socket easily allows me to run both my dash cam off the first socket and my sat nav/iPhone off the second. There’s a little blue light that zones on to confirm there is power.
Overall very happy and highly recommended.

Anker contacted me straight away and offered a newer design. Great customer service.
The newly designed version is much easier to remove due to the ridged edge.
The problem with it jamming in, appears to be related to the to the width of two earth connections on the charger, they get stuck in the internal slots of the sockets on both cars. The width of the earth connectors on the new one look about a mm wider so hopefully will not go into the slot. Failing that it's a matter of inserting it with the earth connectors 90° round from the slots.
Difficult to get out of ciggarete holder. Sides are very slippery. No grip.
That was my first impression a month or so ago and I gave it four stars.
Now down to one star as it has now jammed in a different car. Virtually impossible to grip it and pull it out. Had to put gloves on to grip it and pull it so hard it pulled the whole socket out of the dash !!!
Might be a one off issue but when it jammed in two different cars there must be an issue with the design.
I got this as it has 2 USB slots so my wife could charge her phone as well, or the kids could charge the IPads in the back. I found that the charge is better than the car’s inbuilt USB socket so, even though I have to use Bluetooth to connect the music and use SatNav, it still charges the phone whereas before, I’d end up losing more power than charging it!
I might buy another when the kids need it for the back but it’s enough for now and you can trust Anker brand - I also have a few other of their products like the external portable batteries.
So as others have stated it may or it may not work in your car. I've bought several car chargers over the years and this is the first time that I have come across this problem.
Apparently this is a known issue and Anker customer service contacted me and I have received a replacement unit which works fine. The only difference that I can see is that the replacement unit has a very slightly (about 1mm) longer centre contact pin. I think that this is really exceptionally good customer service but I do have to ask why Anker are still selling a product which they know is not suitable for all vehicles
I was searching for one that can power the camera and also charge my phone. I came across this and i knew how good and reliable Anker are as i have one of their bluetooth speaker which is great and pumps out some good sound, so i chose to purchase this.
Arrived next day, tried it and works perfectly.
I know this product will last ages as it is made by Anker - good quality and very reliable.
this is highly recommended if you want a good and reliable car charger.
A lot of people remedy this with powerbars - I have one but forget to charge it so it's no good in an emergency.
I do a lot of driving, so if I forget I just plug the charger into the car and away I go. I could swear it charges quicker than the mains.
It also has the benefit of charging when the engine isn't on - Assuming your car has an ignition on function.
Well worth the money and paid for itself time and again.
Update: The akner team took notice of the original review left above and were quick to get in contact and offer an alternative product that fit quite well into my vehicle power socket and resolved the initial issue. I am extremely impressed by the dedication and helpfulness of the Anker team and how swiftly they responded after i had left the original review. I have never come across a company that cares and respects its customers so much. I would give 10 stars out of 5 if i could. Thank you anker!!!
If it fits your car, highly recomended
Anker have been brilliant. They emailed just after my review and have now sent another which works fine. Their customer service is fantastic!
