Our take on the Scosche powerPLUG PROby Crutchfield's Dominic DeVito
The Scosche powerPLUG PRO 12-volt USB adapter makes it easy to keep your iPod, iPhone, or other portable electronic device charged when you're on the road. The low-profile USB plug fits nearly flush in any vehicle's 12-volt port or cigarette lighter so you can power up your USB device without an unsightly jack jutting out from your console or dash. And the powerPLUG PRO comes with a USB 2.0 charge-and-sync cable that works with most docking iPod and iPhone models, including the iPod touch®. Scosche's circuitry ensures safe, reliable, and rapid charging on the go. Warranty: 1 year.
