Style Name: Car Charger Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
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.

Delivery was propmt. It was packaged in a plain transparent plastic wrapper. It was not as what I expected since this is a Targus brand. I was expecting a more decent packaging specially for the price I paid. What's more disappointing is when I opened the item I tried the Ipad cable first. I connected it to my Ipad 2 and to my laptop. My Ipad was not detected. So tried it with supplied power adapator and still it did not charge. I got my spare Ipad cable and tried it on the charger, the momment I plugged it in charging immediately started. Problem isolated I got a defective cable. I did tried it again for several times but to no avail. For me it's not worth the price I paid for. My expectation for this brand Targus is quite high and was not met.

I purchased this charger as a travel one for my Ipad 2 and it works great! It is dual voltage (for international travel), had a folding plug (great for traveling), and has a LED indicator to show that it is working. The cable that came with it is a full cable that can be used with the computer for data transfer (not just a power cable). Great and speedy service also.

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.

Style Name: Car Charger 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.

Many iPad chargers don't have sufficent amperage (wattage rating) to charge the iPad while you use it. This charger does. It seems very durable as well. The cord could be a little longer, but it is still longer then the OEM USB charge cord Apple provides.

I recommend this item.

LATEST UPDATE: Nice to see Amazon does pay attention. For such a big corporation, they actually still listen to what you have to say.

I complained that they are not sending out the right targus charger pictured. I have gotten the wrong once twice. So they have pulled it temporarily, hence you will see third party sellers have this only for now.

Well done Amazon! Let's get some quality control back!

UPDATE: Wow, this is a first, Amazon getting an order wrong twice!!! Both times now I have not gotten the one pictured that I ordered the first time. I suspect Targus has stopped making the charger pictured and are now just sending out a generic wall charger.

This is really funny. I am going to take a pic of it so folks can see what you will really get. What is happening to Amazon's quality control!!! For shame guys!

This is my second time ordering this charger, the first time, I received the one pictured, the second time, I got a different charger. The cord on the one I got is shorter, and it is more of a plug in wall traveling charger, and gets very very hot quickly!!! There is also no light indicator. I did not experience that with the one pictured. I needed an Ipad charger quickly that I knew was reliable, so I ordered this one again because the other one got lost.

If my daughter did not use the pad so much, I would send this one back ASAP and get a refund, but I plan to let Amazon know either way.

Be sure to let amazon know ahead of time if you are ordering this one, that you are getting the one pictured!!!
If anyone else has experienced this, please let me know!!
