Default Car charger suggestions!

Need a car charger recommendation. Trying to get usb adapter Plug for my car.. I've have had bad experience in the past with those adapters. Anybody can suggest a product that hs been proven to be safe to use.

I've bought about a dozen different ones on eBay and never had a problem. They're pretty much commodities these days. Any $1 charger should work fine. (Mine are always plugged in, have been for well over a year, and I've never had a problem with them.)

Always get a charger that is 1 amp or more. Never a .5 amp.

A .5 amp is nothing more than a trickle charge and won't even charge your phone if you are using it

I recommend this one:


I know it's a UK advert, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if it's also available in 'The Land of the Free'! (Sorry, no disrespect intended. I'm just very anti-EU and envy your national freedom!)

I like Bolse chargers, I've tried many chargers and the Bolse dual port charger has the most solid fit and charging performance.
