Scosche StrikeDrive Converter
AUX converter and charger for iPhones without a headphone jack
Our take on the Scosche StrikeDrive Converter by Crutchfield's Alexander Hrabe
Ideal for newer iPhones
So, Apple has taken away your headphone jack, but your car radio only has an AUX input... ouch! Scosche delivers a streamlined solution for drivers who want to listen to music from a newer iPhone and keep it pure with a wired connection, but don't want to change out their radio. Scosche's USBCA StrikeDrive converter gives you a car charging unit that converts the audio signal from your iPhone's Lightning cable (not included) and channels it through the included 3.5mm cable into your radio's AUX input.
Plug the USBCA StrikeDrive converter into your vehicle's power source for a 10-watt, 2.1-amp charge that will give your iPhone quick, safe power.
- AUX-in audio converter and charger for iPhone 7 and newer

What's in the Box:

This is an excellent solution for new iPhone users. Works just as it was intended to. I now have one installed in both of my vehicles and couldn't be happier :)

StrikeDrive Converter: The Scosche StrikeDrive Converter (USBCAI) is a 12V-USB car charger for your iPhone 7 and 7+, which also provides an auxiliary output for your Apple device which doesn't offer a headphone jack. The StrikeDrive Converter (USBCAI) plugs into your vehicle's 12-volt auxiliary port or cigarette lighter port, while your iPhone 7/7+ plugs into the StrikeDrive Converter via a Lightning-to-USB cable (not included). The included stereo minijack cable plugs into the Scosche StrikeDrive Converter's 3.5mm Aux output and into your car stereo's Aux input via the included 3' stereo minijack cable.
10W/2.1A USB Charger: The USB port charges your Apple device with a 10W, 2.1 Amp charge, ensuring the fastest, safest charge possible. The iPhone 7/7+ can safely receive a charge of up to 10 watts, making the StrikeDrive Converter the ideal charger. Optimized charging circuitry will not cause any harm to less powerful devices.
3.5mm Aux Output: The Scosche StrikeDrive Converter (USBCAI) converts the audio from your iPhone 7/7+'s Lightning-to-USB connection and passes it through the charger's 3.5mm Aux output and the included 3' stereo minijack cable to your car stereo's Aux input, so you can listen to your favorite tunes in the vehicle.

I do not think you can use this product for your car because your stereo system does not have an aux input. [ Greg Jan 08, 2018 ]
