    Did you read the reviews on Amazon? There were 'only' 851 of them. :rolleyes:

    I have a powerjolt and a puregear. I like the puregear better because the cord isn't as thick and stretches out easier. Also has a usb port in it in case you need to charge 2 devices. Plus the price is really good on ebay

    If you are looking for just a usb plug I would get the scosche revolt dual 10 watt. Can charge 2 ipads at once and staples sells them. Edit- was just at staples and they had them on clearance for $14.50

    Put your criteria in your OP. Specifically state your needs/wants/budget/etc. What devices are you looking to charge and what are their requirements? Don't just assume that everyone's notion of best and good are the same. If they were, we'd all be using the exact same products.

    Nothing like what you're looking for. I use ProClip docks with passthrough that connect to the iPod/iPhone interfaces in our cars. Don't just randomly poll. If you want a random sampling of suggestions there are plenty of existing threads on charging solutions that you can refer to.

    I was using this with an Apple USB to Lightning cable. Then I switched to this. I lose a USB port but gain BT support for my music and hands-free calling.

    Best car charger?

    Anker® 18W / 3.6A (2.1A + 1.5A) Car Charger - The First and Smallest Adapter to Provide Simultaneous, Full-Speed Charges to iPads and Smartphones [White]

    I have this and it works great to charge my devices fast and it is very small compared to the 3.1 amp powergen one.

    Be aware that iOS 7 seems to very selective with supporting non apple lightning cords. I have a nice ten foot lightning cable that both charged and synced my iPhone 5 and iPad Mini with iOS 6. Both devices won't charge or sync with the same cable now that I'm running iOS 7.

    Pretty much asking which one you have and what you think of it.
