Very nice! I have seen many posts lately about new gadgets. I plan to get a new car soon so I may have the chance to test them. If I contact a used cars Dayton Ohio center next week I will be able to get this USB in less than a month. I can't wait! Call me a freak, but testing new technology is my passion.

I might be wrong, but I believe this is a hidden campaign for quitting smoking. The USB device looks nice, but who's to say what's tastier? Unfortunately, I am a smoker and no matter how bad I would like to have this device installed on one of the vehicles I've bought from a used cars Iowa dealer, I can't forget why that space is there.

You may be right, Ella, but you must realize that smoking is bad for you, mkay? I actually installed the USB charger on two of my class B motorhomes and I feel better, I feel more mature, somehow, knowing that I've managed to use a place destined to make my car smell uglier into a spot I can put a lot of information in.

This sounds good, especially the Dual Auto Charger. I have no idea about what should I put in the place of my car cig lighter after I quit smoking. This week I'll go buy a couple of nice Mercedes Benz parts and I think an USB charger will be more than useful to my car

Wow, the Dual Auto Charger was 30$ back then, you can find it for half the price now. Indeed it charges fast and it has proven itself to be a more reliable charger than other ones that can be found on the market. A car from the Las Vegas auto body and an iPhone charger and you're OK to go. Anywhere:)

It's great to know about the cool car accessory. It's really difficult to lit a cigarette with lighter or match stick in a moving vehicle. I will surely install this smart gadget in my car. car covers

Perhaps car companies should just start putting USB ports on dashboards and leaving out the cigarette charger. Seriously, does anybody still use those?

Cool get this and then I'll only need to get a USB powered cigarette lighter.

Nothing special or innovative, but it does look rather nice. And for 15/20 bucks, I'd probably go for it just as a cheap way to charge my phone. However, most car stereos these days come with USB ports on the front that you can use to charge your stuff too.

How is this different than any other cigarette lighter USB charger?

avatar

AntiHero

It sits flush against te dash, better than something protruding, or in my fiancee's car's case (Cavalier), something getting in the way of hers/my knuckles. Some cars do not have the cigarette lighter in a convenient position, so using a cigarette lighter slot for an FM tuner can be tricky since they come off the dash by about 2 inches, just enough for me to find it in the way of my driving (or my fiancee's driving, which i am more concerned about)since the lighter is directly behind the wheel, so that if you're driving, sure it;s in a good place, but if you're nota smoker, then forget about it.

I don't like Microsoft, I associate with it.

  I like the idea, next can they make me a compact charger that'll charge my laptop from my cigarette lighter? inverters are too big.     -Denis

Befor these inverters got cheap and popular laptop manufacturers used to sell car cigarette lighter chargers that you plugged into the car and then into the power slot on the laptop. I do miss the old days. You see these inverters can pull way too much juice and actually damage your alternator and voltage regulator. The old fashioned 12volt charger just used a tiny transformer and a voltage regulation circuit to charge your laptop. The old chargers were alot easier on your car. Use the inverter at your own risk.

New cars these days have 120 volt power outlets built right into them.

What remains to be seen is how many Belkin employees solicit positive reviews for this...
