    I have a VW Tiguan and neither the adapter in the little elbow pad or the one that you plug in the cigarette lighter Charges my phone.

    is it because the adapter I use for the cigarette lighter is not an apple or is it a possible defect in the cigarette lighter?

    The one that also comes in the car, in the elbow thingy, does not charge it either.

    Any suggestions on what to get so I can charge my phone in the car? :(

    That's very odd. I'm having no problems in my gti
    Can you try a friends car charger?

    You also may have a blown fuse.

    ^ This. Try something else in the power outlet to verify that the outlet is working.

    No, you don't have to use an Apple charger.

    thanks. I'll just have to buy something from Radio shack, sit out in the car and see if that works.

    My husband said he bought his from Radio Shack.
