Keep your new iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod® touch charged in the car

Your new Apple device with a Lightning connector works great, but you'll need to charge its battery from time to time when you're on the go. The strikeDRIVE 12W car charger from Scosche gives your device a rapid recharge with 12 full watts of power that'll have your gear juiced up in no time. Even the power-hungry 4th-generation iPad and iPad mini will find that a few minutes with the strikeDRIVE 12W make a big difference in remaining battery time. And even with the 12-watt rating, the charger is perfectly safe for compatible Apple devices that don't consume as much energy, such as the iPhone 5, iPod touch (5th generation), and iPod nano (7th generation).

The Scosche strikeDRIVE 12W boasts a low-profile design so it'll fit in your car's 12-volt port or cigarette lighter without getting in the way. And the 3-foot length of coiled cable keeps things nice and tidy whether or not the charger's in use. The charger is compatible with all Apple devices with Lightning connectors, including newer iPad, iPad mini, iPad nano, iPod touch, and iPhone models. Warranty: 1 year.

Great charger product. Love the low profile and side exit cord. Does not protrude and interfere with objects or space in front of charger. Discreet and charges fast. Coiled cord is a plus too to keeping things neat.

Great Mobile Charger

Great quality charger. Works we'll with Apple products and charges without compatibility issues. Charges fast on iPhone and iTouch.

Pros: Great quality and good price. Charges fast.

Cons: The coiled cord could be longer. The 12V plug needs to be close to you. Will not stretch from front console to back seat where the kids are.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great piece of equipment, works super fast when charging my phone. Plus the light on the charger is not very bright, which is important to me because most of my driving is early morning and late night. Overall very happy with my purchase.

Pros: Charges Fast Light is not too bright

Cons: Cord could be a little bit longer and easier to stretch out.
