    Hello all. Loving the new iPhone so far, however I was unable to get it to charge in my 2011 Volkswagen.

    I have two different cig lighter usb chargers. One no name brand and one Kingston I bought from Apple. Both work when charging the 4S. But when I plug the lightening cable in, the iPhone 5 does not charge. . . .

    Anyone else having an issue?

    If not, what kind USB charger are you using?

    Thanks!!!

    I just bought a universal rocketfish USB car charger from BB ($15 I think) while waiting for an actual iP5 charger to come out, used it with the lightning cable and worked just fine.

    Tried my 2011 VW today and it charged just fine. I have a 12v Griffey USB charger.
