Charge your devices on the go with a car charger from subtel®
Does your GPS or Sat Nav device run out of battery during long drives on unfamiliar roads? Would you like to be able to charge your children's tablet or Nintendo DS to keep them entertained in the backseats? Or maybe you’d like to keep your favourite music playing throughout your journey by keeping your smartphone, MP3 player or iPod fully charged without needing an extra powerbank?
Using a 12-24v socket to USB in car charger and cigarette lighter adapter enables you to charge mobile phones, laptops, navigation devices, smartwatches, tablets and more in your vehicle whilst driving by drawing energy from your vehicle’s internal battery.

What is a 12v socket to USB charger or power outlet?
A cigarette lighter socket adapter plug for cars is a power adapter which plugs into the 12v socket (often referred to as the cigarette lighter socket) of your car, truck or lorry and enables the plugging in and charging of small (often USB) devices such as Sat Navs, GPS, tablets, smartphones and more.
The use of the 12v socket has increased over the years (in the same way that the use of the cigarette lighter has decreased), and these days they’re not only found in cars, vans and other four-wheeled vehicles but also in motorbikes, electric scooters, camper vans, boats and more.
Car or cigarette lighter chargers are particularly practical, as they allow us to charge our devices while on the road or on the move in our daily lives. Drawing power directly from the vehicle’s internal battery, they offer constant charging power to devices such as GPS and Sat Navs and any other navigational tools which help you get to your destination.
Can my device be charged with a car charger?
While 12v-24v socket car chargers are not suited to charge all electrical appliances - especially not larger ones - if your device is charged via USB (or runs within the 12v-24v range), charging using a car charger is likely possible.
If your device receives charge through a Mini-USB, Micro-USB, USB-C or Lightning connector, then your device can definitely be charged via a car charger. This includes almost all smartphone types - including iPhone, Galaxy, Huawei, HTC, Nokia and Xiaomi, to name just a few.
Sat Navs and GPS devices that use non-USB connectors such as a 4.0mm x 1.7mm connector and many others can also be charged using a GPS car charger, although you’ll need to find one with the correct corresponding connector.
In the subtel® web shop, you’ll find a wide range of car chargers and cigarette lighter adapters with different charging ports and connectors. On the product page of each, we provide a list of all device types, brands and models which are 100% compatible with each.
If you’re unsure about whether your device is compatible with a subtel® car charger, simply check this list.
