I have had this product knocking around in my car for months. Why has it taken me this long to review it? Because it works and I forgot about it. The charger fits neatly in a 12V car socket and has a light that tells you when it is powered. It charges my phone in about an hour, which is very handy when leaving home with a phone I forgot to charge up. The coiled lead folds up neatly when the charger is not in use, and is perfect when your phone is near the socket, but if you stretch the cable too much it can act like a spring and tug the plug out of the phone. Consider using an extension cable if your phone is more than a couple of feet from the socket. But all in all it works and I am happy with it.
