As soon as I plugged it into my car, there was a mini explosion and sparks flew everywhere and it caught on fire. I've never had an issue with things I plugged into my car.

Bought 2. Both worked for exactly 3 days.

Bought this 14 days ago. Not working any more. AmazonBasics products are not good.

This stopped working the third time I used it. If I could give it zero stars I would. Total waste of money.

This is the perfect size for my car. I'm not using the cord for others to charge and use the phone at the same time, so I don't need a big reach. While I currently don't have any type of dashboard mount, the cord does have enough give to reach my dashboard without having a super loan cord getting in the way of controls or navigation. I tend to plug my phone in and leave it in the console out of reach (safety first!) I have a 40-minute daily commute and was able to charge my iPhone 8 to 100% from 30% during that time.

Update: I went back in and timed my actual charge rate. I went from 32% to 80% in 45 minutes-and that's while using it to stream audio. So not quite 100% but I wanted to give an accurate review. Still think it's a great cord and worth the price.

Charger stopped working properly only 1 week of use. I have to keep ungplugging it and replugging it over and over.

This charger fills your battery up quick. I’ve only had it for a about two weeks, but it seems to be made well. I’d say it’ll hold up well like other Amazon Basics items. 5/5 good charger.

The product received did not work right out of the box. It kept saying it was plugged in and than not plugged in. In the description it says it’s for apple products but it sure acts like a cheap charger.

Wanted a coiled iPhone charger cable for the car. This does the job perfectly at a great price.

Fits in the lighter socket without wiggle. Small blue light to show it has power and good quality cable for the price. Just works, just as good as the Belkin product which costs a significant amount more.

This charging cable is ideal in my car as there’s no loose cable hanging when connected to the phone attached to the windscreen. The cable is 1 metre long so would not reach passengers in the rear seats. Because it is bright red it’s easy to spot in the glove compartment. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

The units do not appear to work in the cigarette lighter socket …….the male plus not long enough - is there an adaptor ?

Good quality charger and works as expected, good to have it in a red colour as it's easier to find in the vehicle
