    Car charger?

    I need to replace the "3IN1 3 WAY USB PORT + CAR DC CIGARETTE LIGHTER POWER ADAPTER CHARGER SPLITTER" I have been using for about 12 or 18 months. I have the GPS into one port, a radar detector in a 2nd one and my Dx2 into the 3rd. Well that 3rd socket no longer charges and the USB port never worked.

    Looking to replace what I quoted above and the eBay listing states "USB charger output to 5V/500mA, suitable for cell phone, GPS, iPod, and PDA". Is 5V/500mA sufficient to charge the X2? Or will it be slow/sluggish at a rating of 500mA (X2 plugged in & idle, but on while I am driving) since the charger that came with my X2 shows "5.1V 850mA".

    Thanks in advance

    Lane

    500ma should charge just the phone, but the higher the amps, the fast it should charge

    USB drives/USB chargers weren't as dominant when the X2 came out as they are nowadays. Do you think the output of 500mA from a car cigarette lighter will charge at a decent speed? The X2 wall charger is 850mA & I'm not sure if 500 is a "considerable" drop.

    Thanks again for your help - my auto update issues from a few months ago are resolved.

    500ma should be able to charge, but depends on how many amps it takes to maintain current charge, how fast battery dies, and how long you will be leaving on charger.
    I would recommend 850ma or better

    Typically my X2 has a full charge when I get in the car, I really only need to keep a decent power level while driving. I was curious of a USB charge speed on this car adapter, but will have 3 DC outlets on it if the USB charges slow.
