Overview

The U280-C02-S-M6 Dual USB Car Charger lets you quickly and safely charge two USB-powered mobile devices in your vehicle at the same time. You and your passenger can connect your cell phones simultaneously to ensure full charges when you reach your destination.

Also ideal for tablets, MP3 players and other USB devices, the U280-C02-S-M6 features a built-in six-foot USB Micro-B cable with Quick Charge 2.0 technology for rapid charging of compliant devices. Available outputs include 5V 2A, 9V 1.67A and 12V 1.25A. The cable’s auto-sensing technology allows it to also charge devices without Quick Charge capability at a maximum power output of 5V 2.4A. The specially coiled cable takes up much less space than a regular six-foot cable.

The U280-C02-S-M6’s USB port also features auto-sensing technology that detects the connected device and automatically adjusts to the appropriate power level up to 5V 2.4A, perfect for fast-charging tablets and e-readers. It’s also compatible with both Apple and Android, as well as other platforms.

This ultra-compact charger works with any standard 12V DC vehicle power outlet. A front-facing LED indicates successful charging.

Frequently Asked Questions

It depends on the make and model of your car. Some cars require the keys to be in the ignition and turned to "On" or "Acc" for the power point (cigarette lighter) to provide power to the USB charger. Other cars may continue to supply power to the cigarette lighter even if the engine is turned off. To be sure, turn your vehicle off and see if your phone or tablet continues to charge. Important: if your vehicle does supply power to the cigarette lighter when the engine is turned off, do not leave your device charging for an extended period of time to avoid draining your battery.

In practical terms, yes. Older cars have cigarette lighter sockets that can power your electronics. More modern cars have 12V DC Auxiliary Power Outlets that power electronics but should NOT be used with a cigarette lighter. You can use an accessory plug with either an old or new outlet. You can read more about the standard (SAE J563_200902) governing Auxiliary Power Outlets on the Society of Automobile Engineers (SAE) website.
