Charging Your Devices
You know that your computer has a USB port, but what about your car? From cellphones to MP3 players, most modern devices that hook into a computer can be charged through a USB cable and cord. Grabbing a USB adapter for your vehicle will ensure that your cellphone or MP3 player will never run out of battery while you’re on the road.
There are several options when it comes to purchasing an adapter for your car, and many of them have to do with what features you want. Do you want one port? Two? How about three?

The modern car is a hub of electricity – all you need to harness it is the right adapter or device! From USB adapters to portable ovens and beverage warmers, there’s no end to what you can do with that cigarette lighter in your vehicle.
