Plugin USB car charger


New member
Jul 9, 2013
Does anyone have any recommendations for a plug-in car charger?

I'm looking for one with a 'curly' lead, but could buy a separate lead and a separate USB plug-in.
Although there don't seem to be a great selection of curly leads on the UK Amazon site.

I'm also confused about what USB adaptor to go for, or which would be useful.
There seem to be a range of outputs

Any help would be appreciated :grin:

go with this:

Amazon.com: Anker USB Car Charger PowerDrive 2 (24W / 4.8A, 2 Ports) for iPhone 6 / 6 Plus, iPad Air 2 / mini 3, Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge and More: Cell Phones & Accessories

Anker is great stuff. Then add this:


Cable Matters stuff is top notch too. Then you'll have a high quality higher amperage charging solution an and extra type C cable. Then use Velcro straps to shorten the cable to the needed length.
