I recently acquired a car charger and cable made by Tech Armor.
They are sold as 2 separate units, which makes sense considering the number of other charger/cord combination units that have failed over the years. If either ever fails, you only need to replace the one item. Makes sense to me!
The combo unit I had been using had a coiled vinyl coated cord, which constantly became tangled in my car on it’s way from the charger receptacle to the iPhone. Not easy to deal with, especially while driving.
Tech Armor has the right idea. The cord is braided as you can see in the picture. It stays straight, and most importantly it stays where you put it. No coiling, no pulling the iPhone across the seat. And the braiding gives it an ability to be routed as you need, and it stays put!
It just works.
Both the charger and the cord feel substantial, not cheap. It gives you the feeling that you will have these for a good long time. And the charger has 2 USB ports, so charging multiple devices is easy.
Another bonus is the cord can do double duty. It can charge your device in the car, or it can be used in the house with an iPhone or iPad AC charger. And also the charger can be used with Apple, Samsung, and any other electronic device utilizing a USB connector. The benefits and flexibility are endless.
If you find yourself in need of a charger or charging cable for your iDevice or other mobile device, look no further than Tech Armor. Don’t cheap out with a lesser unit. In this case, you get what you pay for. And these can be purchased online for a very reasonable price.
Tech Armor warranties the cord for life, and the charger for 10 years. Enough said.
I have provided links below for both products. Highly recommended!
