Description: This is device that plugs into the 12-24V outlet in cars. It has a USB type A connector and can source 5V up to 650mA. This allows the user to charge or run a USB device in a car! We know - it’s nothing too novel, but extremely handy if you’ve got a device that can charge over USB. The car adapter also works as a great 5V source to run many of our development boards.

Features:

  • Works in cars or trucks with 12V to 24V input
  • 5V max 650mA output
  • Replaceable fuse
  • Power on LED

Customer Comments

  • This is the cheapest car-cord you buy for an iPhone.
    Add the standard USB-to-ipod/iphone cable that came with your device and you have a $5 car-cord.
    Whenever I buy a new cell phone, I usually end up having to get a cord just for that phone. Even though Apple doesn’t supply a car-cord with an iphone or ipod, this is all it takes to get one.
    It works well for charging up all the USB chargeable devices you have including backup batteries that are charged by USB.
