Ideal for charging your iPhone, iPod and iPad while on the road. Just plug the convenient car charger into a 12 Volt receptacle, to simultaneously charge 2 Apple devices in full-power AC mode (using your existing cables). The charger features high-output dual ports, which includes a 1.0 Amp USB port for charging your iPhone or iPod, and a 2.4 Amp USB port for charging your iPad or additional device. And its compact, low-profile design fits securely into most car outlets, and reduces the clutter associated with common bulky chargers. It even lets you use your devices while theyíre charging, letting you play music, stream YouTube, chat on the phone, surf the web and more during long travels. Installation has never been easier, thanks to a stylish LED that indicates the chargerís status. Rest easy, knowing that this charger is equipped with a fuse for over-charge protection, which switches to a trickle charge (50mA) once a connected device's battery is full. That way, youíre safe from short circuits, overheating, over-currents and power spikes that could potentially harm your valuable electronics. With the Mediabridge Dual USB Car Charger, deciding on which device to charge first is a thing of the past.
