    Anyone using a USB car charger with the lighting cable. This seems like the only option for charging in your car as there seems to be no iphone 5 specific chargers out there, plus i can charge up my "old iPad"

    I use my GoPro camera car charger. Works fine. I also have a fm transmitter in my work truck that charges and plays fine.

    I have an Incase car charger with two USB ports and I use it to charge an iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 simultaneously, and it's been working fine for me.

    I received the Griffin two USB car charger as a bonus to my Noot case. I did purchase a Lightning to USB cord to keep plugged in to the car charger. So now I can charge my iPhone 5 and my husband can also charge his iPhone 4S at the same time.

    That's the same one I got as a bonus gift to the Noot case. Works fine.

    The Griffin Powerjolt fits fluish in my 12v socket and lets me charge 2 USB devices at once.

    This one will work on phones but not an iPad, correct?

    If you want to Charge your iPad as well (and quick-charge your iPhone), Belkin offers something that's a little beefier, though.

    I'm told it can charge an iPad too but slowly.

    I picked this up in store at Walmart, works fine (charges quite fast too). Not exactly the cheapest out there but not too bad for B&M under $10.
