    What is best car charger for iPhone 5 via Amazon?

    Hi all

    I need to get a car charger for a Saab car - the Apple store sells the Just Wireless combo wall/car charger which works fine in my Honda, but it won't fit in my Saab car.

    So I need a car charger suggestion. Preferably one that I can get off Amazon since I assume it'll be cheaper than what one buys at an Apple/ATT store.

    I can't detect which car chargers (that take USB) will work for the iphone5.

    Thanks
    Michael

    personally, I got a cheep inverter (plugs into the cigarette lighter and gives you an AC outlet) and then you can just plug in any wall-charger. Not only that, but if your car stops and you need to charge your phone, you have a wall-charger you can take inside a restaurant/hotel/etc and charge it too.

    Just get a generic DC to USB converter and then you can use it to charge any USB device, not just iPhone 5.

    I like the Kensington PowerBolt because of its low profile. It completely immerses itself into the DC power port, nothing sticking out, very clean.

    +1 for XFF's post.

    I like the Kensington PowerBolt Duo. It's got two USB ports - one at 1A for an iPhone/iPod, and the second at 2.1A, suitable for an iPad. And, unlike many such dual port devices, you can use both ports simultaneously at their rated output.

    At Sam's Club in town, I saw a Duracell one with one cable and two charger ports, one for the wall and other for the car. Both have the same USB port on.
