    i was trying to charge my ativ s phone in my car but it wasnt able to charge it(no response from my phone).
    so i tried this action on another car(i use the original cable by the way) and nothing happened.
    i replaced the electrical supply(the universalt usb transormer) and tried on 2 other cars!!! while others can charge their phone with those 2 transformers i cant.
    i tried another cable-same.
    did anybody encourged this problem?
    is it a volt provision problem so i need to buy a special car charger for my ativ s ?

    I've had no issues charging mine in my truck, might be the impedance is not matching. If the issue persist you could always grab a 50 watt inverter for the 12 volt plug. Hopefully you get it figured.

    Oh, I once had a car where + - wiring on the power outlet was wrong. Did you check that? Use a Voltmeter.

    If it doesn't charge using multiple combinations of vehicle's and chargers AND it charges with a wall charger, then it sounds like it could be as simple as the connectors are dirty.

    Only problem I ever had was when I purchased a vehicle with an aftermarket radio, and when they installed it the ground for the outlet some how disconnected.
