I was looking for a good, affordable, car charger. A Best Buy Associate helped me find this one. I never considered this style of charger before. However, now I may prefer this style. Because the reason I needed a new car charger was because my cable had frayed in the usual spot that it does, just below the lightning connector. But the actual charger itself was still operational.
With this style, if either the cord, or the charger fails, I just have to replace that section. In my opinion, I think it makes it versatile and more cost effective.
