The powerFUZE from Scosche gives you the flexibility to charge your portable electronics at home and in the car with one convenient device. This handy package features an AC charger with dual USB charging ports, so you can power up to two devices simultaneously at home. One of the powerFUZE's USB ports detaches to become a 12-volt power plug that fits in your vehicle's cigarette lighter so you can keep one device charged in the car. You won't need to keep track of multiple chargers for home and the road — this handy package takes care of both.

You can use the powerFUZE's 12-volt converter to charge powered devices with 12-volt plugs at home, and its AC prongs fold in for added portability. At home or in your vehicle, you'll enjoy safe, reliable, and rapid charging. Warranty: 1 year.
