1.0 out of 5 stars Does not work!!!, 14 Nov. 2011
By 
I tried the charger in all 3 of my cigarette lighters in my Audi A5, not to mention my other half's Vauxhall Astra, and the charger did not work. It simply didn't make a connection to charge my iPhone, Occassionally if you fiddled with it, the RED light came on briefly, but then turned off again as soon as you took your hand away.

Received a replacement, same problem, clearly a design fault with the product. Looking at other reviews it seems to work in other cars, however if you compare it to a different type of charger, the metal tip which is supposed to connect with the end of the cigarette lighter socket is a lot shorter, hence why it doesn't seem to work in many cars.

I also found that when I did manage to make a (brief) connection, it wouldn't actually charge my iPhone, only power it. However, it did charge my iPod, leading me to believe it is not powerful enough for iPhones. Other reviews seem to concur with this.

Frankly, this is useless. I've since bought a proper iPhone charger which works properly.
