Using USB charger in the car


May 13, 2009, 7:32 PM
I have a Griffin iPod car charger that is essentially a USB cable for the iPod that plugs into a converter that then plugs into the cigarette lighter. Here's a similar product: »

I have a Samsung Impression that came with a USB cable. The Impression has only 1 plug for charging, plugging into a computer, etc. So can I just plug the Impression's USB cable into the adapter to charge my phone in my car. I can't see why this wouldn't work, but I wanted to see what y'all thought about doing this.

Would work fine, usb is usb all 5 volt. If it doesnt charge then that means the amperage is not enough to supply the phone.

So if the phone doesn't charge, that means that the amperage isn't enough eh? Well that's a big no crap. I mean seriously, come on, if it doesn't charge it doesn't have enough power. Man, that is a revolutionary statement there. Do you work for the DOD or something? Golly, I just need to go lay down and reassess my life with a revelation like this... If it doesn't charge it doesn't have enough power, man.. wow, I still can't grasp that...
