Features

USB Car Charger Safely Charges 2 Mobile Devices in Your Vehicle Simultaneously
This dual-port USB car charger with Power Delivery 3.0, Quick Charge 3.0 and Quick Charge 4+ technology lets you quickly and safely charge two USB mobile devices at the same time. You and a passenger can connect your smartphones, tablets, notebooks or power banks, to name just a few compatible devices, to ensure satisfactory battery charge when you reach your destination. 
A Combined 45W of Charging Power Feeds Your Power-Hungry Devices
When used together, the USB-C and QC 3.0 USB-A ports support up to 45W of charging power. The fast-charging 27W (5V 3A or 9V 3A) USB-C port keeps your USB-C laptop at capacity, while the smart-charging 18W (5V 3A or 9V 2A) USB-A port reliably charges smartphones and tablets.
USB-C Charging Port Supports Fast PD 3.0 and QC4+ Charging Speeds
The USB-C charging port is powered by advanced PD Charging 3.0 and QC4+ technology. Instead of charging at a preset power level, this charger adjusts to one of three possible power levels to provide as much power as your PD-compatible device’s battery can handle. Available outputs include 5V/3A, 9V/3A and 12V/2.25A. If your device supports QC4+, the charger’s USB-C port generates 3.3V–5.9V/3A or 3.3V–11V/2.45A outputs.
Plugs into the 12V DC Power Outlet in Your Vehicle
The compact charger connects to any standard 12V DC vehicle power outlet, such as the one on your dashboard. Just plug it in, and connect your devices’ USB cables for fast, convenient mobile charging. An LED glows blue to indicate the charging process is underway. The U280-C02-45W-1B is compatible with Apple (including iPhone), Android (including Samsung), Windows and Amazon devices with USB-A, USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 charging ports.

Frequently Asked Questions

It depends on the make and model of your car. Some cars require the keys to be in the ignition and turned to "On" or "Acc" for the power point (cigarette lighter) to provide power to the USB charger. Other cars may continue to supply power to the cigarette lighter even if the engine is turned off. To be sure, turn your vehicle off and see if your phone or tablet continues to charge. Important: if your vehicle does supply power to the cigarette lighter when the engine is turned off, do not leave your device charging for an extended period of time to avoid draining your battery.

In practical terms, yes. Older cars have cigarette lighter sockets that can power your electronics. More modern cars have 12V DC Auxiliary Power Outlets that power electronics but should NOT be used with a cigarette lighter. You can use an accessory plug with either an old or new outlet. You can read more about the standard (SAE J563_200902) governing Auxiliary Power Outlets on the Society of Automobile Engineers (SAE) website.
