    Quickly recharges my iP6

    After checking prices and programs offered by Best Buy online I visited their local store to purchase an iP6. The webpage indicated a Belkin package that included a home and car charger is included free when an iP6 is purchased. While we were completing the transaction I mentioned the free Belkin chargers. I was informed the store had given all of them away and did not have any more. Best Buy's price for the phone and package I selected is the same price Verizon charges. The reason I went to Best Buy was the free Belkin chargers. At that point I had to make a decision to complete the transaction or drive to Verizon and start all over. I decided to complete the transaction but would like to warn those who are considering purchasing from Best Buy when a "free" item is included, they might not have any. So either call to make sure they can deliver or go to your service provider because without the "free" item they both have the same price and your service provider will have all your records. A car charger is not included with the iP6 so most people will need to buy a charger. I have never had a problem with an Insignia product so I selected an Insignia charger and it works good. I do not have a protective case for my phone but I have read that the pins on some chargers will not make proper contact because the case blocks the connector. You might check to make sure you can push the connector all the way in if your have a case on your phone.

    Second Time A Charm?

    Initially purchased this item 13 months ago specifically at Best Buy using my Rewards Account because it seemed like every few months I was replacing broken car chargers. This item was recommended, had a 1-year warranty, and date of purchase was in Best Buy computer system. Fast-forward 13 month and THIS CHARGER starts to break, one month past the warranty period. Frustrated and disappointed, I took it back to Best Buy thinking it might still be covered under warranty. Well, after looking up prior transaction in the computer, discovered it was one month past the warranty period. Nothing Best Buy could do to replace it. However, manager did try to help...she gave me $5 off a repurchase and suggested that I no longer keep car charger permanently in the car....that the hot temps in CA can fry the wiring. So, while not completely satisfied with this product, I can say it lasted longer than others and hopefully now that I keep it in my purse (rather than glovebox) it will last longer than 13 months. Only time will tell.

    “THIS ACCESSORY MAY NOT BE SUPPORTED” ERROR

    I bought this charger for my iPhone X because a coworker had one. It looked like it was built well, and I liked the fact that it has a coiled cord. It worked for a few days after purchase, and then I started getting error messages on my phone saying that “THIS ACCESSORY MAY NOT BE SUPPORTED”. My phone will not charge, even after trying all the tips and tricks found online on how to get your phone to accept the cord. My software is up-to-date, the lightning cable is clean as it is brand new. The box says that it’s compatible with my phone, and I still can’t figure out why I’m getting this message. I will be taking this Insignia charger back to Best Buy for an exchange or a refund.

    I like that this charger is coiled cord, so it's pretty much out of the way when not in use. I have one of those little sticky back hooks in my car and I hang the end of it there and it will reach my phone mount without unhooking it. If I have to hold the phone to my ear, which I seldom do, the cord stretches without unplugging from the phone or DC outlet. So I read where some so called expert talked about DC surges in cars and you shouldn't use a cord like this. Here's the deal, don't plug the phone into the charger until you have started the vehicle. Most surges occur when you first start the vehicle. Once it's up and running you can plug this charger in. Now if you have an alternator issue and the voltage is going up and down, you have bigger problems and other more important electronics are going to get messed up. Mine is in my truck all the time and like I said, it's purpose built.

    The one Insignia product that I own

    I normally try to stay away from Insignia brand products as I am a believer that you get what you pay for and saving a few dollars now will likely mean spending twice later. In this case, I needed a charger for one of my cars and the gentleman at Best Buy showed me each of them that they had to offer. I noticed right away that the attention to detail on the Insignia product was above that of the others. The guy insisted that this was the best one. I cannot agree more. I am glad that I purchased this one and it has served me well and has lasted through a lot of use and, knock on wood, I do not see me having to spend twice on this purchase anytime soon.

    I made a mistake an bought a cheap brand of charger. It didn't have the Apple chip. It killed my iPhone battery. The battery expanded and bent my screen ...oh yes, and it did't hold a charge. The (non-Apple) iPhone repair place recommended this brand after they installed a new battery. Certified Apple compliant is ESSENTIAL. This unit is. This is a much more solid charger than my cheapie. And it holds the phone tight in the charging port --the old one was loose from the start. This is a great little unit. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    I bought the big brother of this one when I first got my iPhone 6 Plus, and I needed another one for my other car (that way I don't have to worry about which car has the charger). While I wish I would have gotten the bigger one, this one does the job very well. It provides enough power to run my phone, my GPS app, make calls and still charge the phone. I also like the small footprint of the charger. The cord comes out in a 90 degree angle so I can plug this into the van cigarette lighter, and not bump my knee into it, like I have done with all the other chargers I have ever had. The light isn't obnoxious like others at night which is also a plus.

    Great picture quality, even non 4K content is amazing looking. Inclusion of HDR 10 and Dolby Vision is great for watching streaming content that supports either format. Have played both Xbox One X and PS4 Pro on the tv and both are drastically improved over my previous hdtv. Setup was extremely simple and each input has its own settings. Very intuitive and easy controls of all settings, apps, and tv controls. Connecting the remote to other inputs is as simple as point and click. Best tv I’ve owned and would highly recommend to anyone, definitely don’t let the price scare you off.

    I chose the Jaybird X2 to use during an 18 hour flight this summer. I wanted something that I could run with later on. They have been great. They were very comfortable during my flight and went about 7 hours before I had to recharge them. Since then I have used them while running and they have been great. These are my first wireless earbuds, and I could not go back to a wired set. The convenience of not being wired to my phone has been more than I had imagined and the X2's stay in place so much better than other earbuds that I have tried. Sound is good, and no problems with connection and interference. Love them!

    I wanted to use the headphones for a few weeks before i commented. Some people complain about the bass and sound quality. I felt it was weak at first too. But, when you use the right earths and get a better seal, the sound really comes alive. Good bass, treble is balanced and sound is quite accurate. I wear them all the time now. The only question is how they will handle noisy environments. To date, the only headphone which does well is the stock white apple corded set. These are susceptible to wind. Not sure how they handle noise. I will let you know.

    My original I-Phone charger developed a bad connection, in the wire. This charger replaced the original, with perfect performance, seems to be even more durable than the original, charges my phone as quickly as I could ask., and, if my phone can be close to the power connection, its coiled wire is short and out of the way. If necessary to reach further, from the power to the phone, the coiled wire will stretch to 6 feet. I am totally satisfied with the performance, price, and convenience of this item.

    Didn't keep charging phone

    The use was for a new iPhone 6. A week after purchase, we took a 3,200 mile road trip. The charger wouldn't keep charging the phone. Finally we used my wife's Verizon brand car charger which worked perfectly. I took back the insignia one. Kind of funny side story. This past weekend, we upgraded three more phones at Best Buy Mobile to iPhone 6's. As a nice "gift" they threw in three of these insignia chargers. Interesting that they are now giving them away. They were pulled from their back room and all three had a layer of dust on them. Must be having problems getting rid of them.

    Belkin chargers are better.

    Works acceptably but tends to get very hot for the time used. I needed to make an emergency purchase to replace my current charger so I purchased this device based on a recommendation by a sales rep. However, when I reached my destination and went to unplug the insignia charger, I found it too hot for the time it was used. I immediately purchased a Belkin charger and have experienced none of the heat issues. This has been my second insignia purchase and I have found the quality to be inferior to similar products made by other companies.

    My car was broken into when I was out of town and my set of charging cords were stolen. I needed to replace them quickly as I was going to drive back home and I knew that I would not have enough reserve power for my IPhone. It was very convenient to have a BestBuy near me and to be able to purchase this cord. It works well and does a good job charging my phone. The only issue that one must pay attention to is that the device is sufficiently inserted into the auto's power source in order to obtain a connection to charge.

    Many times we've had car charges that suddenly won't charge our phones, with a "compatibility" error message that appears (the good old apple monopoly at work). This one we've had no problems with so far. The cord stretches farther than you anticipate (wish it was maybe just a few inches longer), and the ability to plug in another item using the USB port is very handy. Very sturdy build. No problems so far.

    Good Replacement

    This was a good replacement for the car charger I did have. The only drawback is in that it sometimes has to be pushed back into place because it will tend to push itself out of the lighter socket. I have on at least two occassions connected my phone and not checked the actual charger in the socket, and ended up with a phone that didn't charge at all. Frustrating as that might be, I just have to be more aware of needing to push the charger back into place so it can get a current to charge the phone.

    Not much to say about a car charger. But this one gets the job done. The fact that it is coiled is nice that way you don't have wires all over the place when it's not in use, and it can stretch out to what you need it for. Definitely something to think about when purchasing a car charger. A little on the pricey side, but when you have a $1,000 iPhone, I have a iPhone X, you should invest in something that has a brand name. I would definitely recommend this.

    I had been using a USB power source in my car with a standard lightning connector cable to power my iPhone when necessary. The cable became frayed in several sections, so I decided to replace it. This cable and charger is not USB but an integrated coiled cable permanently attached to a plug for a cigarette lighter socket. The coiled cable makes it easy to store and it has enough length to position the iPhone within reach. The cable and power source looks sturdy and built to last.

    This is a basic car charger for iPhones, It is the closest I could find to the original car charger that I had with my iPhone 5S. Like anything that gets a lot of use over time, that ol' trusty unit eventually died so I looked to replace with the same thing. Almost all the chargers now are mutl-piece to take apart and use for various purposes, but I wanted the same one-piece unit as the original. Incredibly, not even the Apple website showed any.

    The charger does what it's supposed to do. I bought this as a replacement for my previous one which eventually broke at the end like all iPhone chargers do. However the previous version was much better, it was longer and a more flexible wire. This one is shorter and was the only size I found in store. The wire is also very stiff and gets in my way driving. The previous charger I had also had an additional USB port for additional devices to charge if needed. This one does not have a USB port.
