Turn your car cigarette lighter into phone USB charging port for only Ugx 30,000

As many pundits have noted, the Matrix was not so far off the mark after all. We are indeed living in the technological age and we are all plugged into something. Either that, or we are constantly plugging our ever-growing list of gadgetry to juice up on the go. 

You can simply plug a USB car phone charger like the USAMS Dual USB Port car charger in your car outlet/cigarette lighter socket and you’re good to go. Doing this, you can charge smartphones (iPhone + Android), tablets, MP3 players, cameras, power banks and even your Playstation (PS4) all in the comfort of your car.

In its war chest, the USAMS car phone charger promises a whole lot for such a small device. First off, it’s fully certified by serious sounding initials like ROHS, CE and FCC that we normally see plastered on devices. We subsequently expect certain industry standards and protections in place if at all those initials did due diligence. 

The USAMS car charger has protections against high voltage, over charging, heating up and short circuits. Most of us have horror stories of cheap knock off car charges wreaking havoc on our smartphones, so this backing is supposed to be a reassurance. As nothing of the sort has happened in the time we took to review this gadget, cheers to that. 

In addition, the USAMS car charger sports 3.1A dual USB fast charging capability. Two devices can charge simultaneously at full speed in either port. Input DC voltage is between 12V~24V whereas maximum output tops out at 5V (3.1A). This voltage is compatible with most passenger vehicles.
