    The best combo of features I found, February 12, 2013

    Even without any reviews here, this one fits the bill for me. After reviewing various Lightning chargers from Griffin, Kensington, and Belkin, I chose this one for a some key reasons.

    – 2.1 AMP OUTPUT: This ensures I have the maximum electrical output available. FYI: 2.1 amps multiplied by 5 Volts DC = 10.5 watts, but labels will only show 10 watts
    – COMPACT SIZE: This fits in a vehicle 12 volt socket well and protrudes only enough to get a good grip to pull it out with your fingers. Some products were unnecessarily long or bulky; I prefer simple.
    – REMOVABLE USB CORD: Instead of a hardwired connection, I have the versatility to swap out the Lightning cord with a USB to micro USB cord for my wife’s phone or the USB to Apple 30-pin connector for the iPad. If you find nothing but the Apple OEM size of lightning connections fits with your phone case, you can buy this same item without the cord for less $ and use your own cord. Search: F8J051ttWHT (color white) or F8J051ttBLK (color black)
    – NO RING OF LIGHT: So many reviewers of products complained about the light ring feature being a distraction. This model features a simple round green LED light that is not much brighter than the console button lights in my car. I ended up twisting the light to the 3 o’clock position where the USB connector blocks my direct line-of sight to it. If I wanted to, a small piece of black electrical tape would cover the LED completely and easily since it is away from the USB connection. This is the 1 feature I valued to prefer it over the Belkin # F8J090bt04-BLK, which has the same power output and small form factor.

    Is it cheap, no. But would I rather spend less and give up some these features…….no. I would have bought the version of this product less the 4′ cord if a good coiled cord were available(I didn’t like the Griffin coiled cord). Thanks for reading!

    UPDATE FEBRUARY 1, 2014:
    I noticed there were many negative reviews about this charger recently. (I wondered what was going on?) I read about iOS 7 compatibility issues. My phone was updated long ago and everything still works and charges like it always has. I read the comments in Scott Jones review and see the cause may have be a defective cord. I suggest to send it back for replacement and try again. oh…..that figures….the price is now less than half of what I paid.

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)
    The iPhone wall outlet chargers are super-quick at charging. I have gone from 30% to 90% in about an hour. You get used to that kind of speed charging and this 2.1 AMP car charger give you exactly that! Initially, I scoffed at the price for these high AMP chargers and bought a 1 AMP car charger. Since my ride to work in less than 20 minutes, I would probably get 10% more charge off the 1 AMP charger, but with this 2.1 AMP charger, I manage to juice up about 25%. The really cool part of this charger is that I can pull out the USB cable and continue charging my phone via my laptop USB port.

    The charger is well-designed and has a robust construction – Apple worthy! The charger sits flush with my power outlet with just enough of it popping out to get an easy grip for removal. The charger does not have any edges, it blends well into the dash with only the distinctive green bezel being highlighted – adds a little color to my drab dash. I also love the new low-profile negative (outer) terminal design. No more accidental snagging and ripping the terminal out of the charger. It also helps with a smoother insertion and removal from the power outlet.

    The lightning connector is well designed and fits most cases without any issue (check images above)

    Pros:
    * Solid feel to the product. Well built and sturdy parts – charger, cable and lightning connector
    * Included USB Lightning cable
    * Slim profile charger that sits flush and does not get in the way
    * Fast charging – almost as fast as a wall outlet charger. Approx 2.5 hours for a full charge
    * Well designed lightning connector fits most cases without any issue

    Cons:
    * Pricey at $35 – but not too expensive at current market rates for a 2.1 AMP charger with a reliable, detachable Lightning cable
    * The charger has a Green LED that remains on when the charger is connected. It seems inefficient to power the gremlins. I have old USB car chargers that turn-off when a device is not plugged in, light up Red when charging and Green when fully charged – I paid less than $10 for those chargers
    * For a car, I prefer a coiled cable like this one, just keeps things compact – Griffin Tech PowerJolt SE Coiled Lightning Car Charger for iPhone 5, Touch 5G, Nano 7G

    NOT COMPATIBLE WITH iOS 7, October 29, 2013

    This thing does the job for the most part – the USB car port works…

    BUTTTT IF YOU HAVE IOS 7 YOU’RE OUT OF LUCK!

    In the iOS7 update, Apple has made it so that their devices only recognize official “Made By Apple” thunderbolt cords… so this cord doesn’t work. The actual port will work with an Apple-made thunderbolt cord though. Cheap move by Apple.
