    Heats up HTC one

    while the HTC One M8 is clearly not one of the phones supported by this product, I figured I would give it a try anyway, figuring it would at least be better than most other car chargers. It definitely works, charging my phone at a pretty good rate, but it makes my phone get noticeably hotter, which concerns me about how it is affecting my battery life. Be weary if you are buying this product for a phone that is not listed on the case.

    Not bad, just expensive.

    I was away from home using a car that wasn't my own. I forgot my charger, and was forced to buy a new one. So, I went to Best Buy and picked up on that I could use with my own cables. Works like a charm, but I had to pay what I would call a convenience fee in order to get it immediately. I'm sure there are adequate ones available on the internet for far less. There's not much technology to it.

    Unit has worked perfectly thus far, my iphone and iPad are used with my pathfinders overhead tv for the kids. Neither apple products have gotten hot from charging with this unit and always seem to hold a solid charge when disconnected. The white ring lights up and stays lit while the ignition is on,I like this feature some may not. Four stars for only having one port

    We have several IPhone 6's to charge while driving and have attempted to use different car chargers. This charger stands out as perhaps the best of the lot. It is very small, provides plenty of power, and doesn't get hot. If you want a well made, small, easy to use charger that will handle charging your new iPhone, this would be a great choice.

    Good output amperage

    Gave my old phone charger to the wife, so I needed a new one. Chose this one because of the output amperage, size and priced right for the output. Only issues I have with it, driving at night the LED light can be pretty bright and distracting and it doesn't exactly fit snug into my 12v power port. Other than those two things it works great.

    Charges my Galaxy S3

    After updating my S3 to the latest Android 4.4.2 (KitKat), my Samsung Galaxy S3 no longer was willing/able to charge from my no-name USB charger. After researching, I selected this Griffin charger and it works great. Only reason not 5 stars is that this charger is a bit more expensive than most.

    Use to charge my gallaxy 2. Got frustrated with my old 1amp charger which didn't keep up when a used the phone for navigation. With this chargers 2amp output charging time is much faster and i no longer loose ground when using gps navigation. Paid a little bit more than i wanted for a car charger

    Not a sophisticated item, but it does what it is supposed to do. I needed this for a long trip to keep my phone charged while using it as a navigation device. A bit pricey for what it is; and there are models that can charge two devices; but that is not what I needed and it worked well.

    I tried other chargers for my Samsung Galaxy S5 and returned them. Either charge time was too slow, or the unit got extremely hot and nearly burned my fingers after removing it from the car lighter. This unit, although somewhat small, works perfectly and charges the unit fast.

    Good charger. Bought this one because it was more expensive so I was thinking it would charge faster, which it does a slight bit. The color power indicator doesn't really change at all with the lighting apple cable, its just a white light the whole time. Sorta bulky but not a problem.

    I had bought quite a few chargers before this one, and none of them gave enough power to charge my Blackberry. I had just about given up when the salesperson at Best buy recommended this one. It worked right away and I have had it for almost a year now with no problems.

    I thought I was buying this for additional power for my Galaxy S5 only to find that 1. the existing charger that I bought from Best Buy pumped more power and 2. it charged my other devices quite slowly. I'm sure it's good for a basic user, but not for me. I returned it.

    My previous car charge would only charge my phone if it were shutdown. It did no produce enough power to run the phone and charge it at the same time. This one works great and has all the power I need to charge my phone and tablet.

    Well made, small and has a laptop like 'grippy' surface which I like. I would prefer that it did NOT have the lighted white ring when plugged in because if you leave it in the car socket while the car is off, it will consume a small amount of current.

    I like that it's compact. It also charges my phone relatively quickly. I haven't had any problems with it in the 2 months I've had It. It was a little more expensive then I would have liked. Also it could be improved by having two USB plug ins on it.

    I have purchased several car charger adapters for my cell phones. This by far is the best one. It actually charges my phone correctly without me having to wiggle it or find ways to hold my phone to get a charge. Very happy with this product.

    Does What It Does

    I'm not entirely sure what to say about this item. It does what it does. It fits the power port in my wife's car, it supplies power, and it hasn't caught fire. So, at the end of the day, I'd say that this item works exactly as expected.

    Can use multiple devices!

    Love the fact that we can use to charge multiple types of devices. Versatile..can use many usb cords-not all at the same time-to charge different devices. Makes it nice to just have to change usb cords and not the entire charger.

    Good quality. Doesn't feel cheep. I could do without the super bright white light ring when plugged in, especially since my accessory plug stays on without the key so i have to unplug it so the light doesn't stay on.

    This is a versatile vehicle charger that will accommodate a number of electronic devices with its USB port. Simply add the unique connecting cable from your device and charge away. The built in circuit breaker is a nice feature.
