On the Road? Use an Optional Car Charger

If you spend a considerable amount of time in your car, an optional car charger can be the perfect solution for powering your iOS device, even while it's in heavy use.

Car chargers are available from a wide range of companies, including Incase (http://goincase.com/products/category/Power), Belkin (http://www.belkin.com), Griffin Technology (http://store.griffintechnology.com), and Brookstone (http://www.brookstone.com/bluetooth-keyboard-portfolio-ipad-2).

They're priced around $25.00, and most can be used with an iPhone or iPad. This optional accessory plugs into the 12V cigarette lighter/power outlet that's built into your vehicle, as well as into the Dock Connection port located on the bottom of your iOS device.

When purchasing a car charger adapter, make sure it offers a 2- or 2.1-amp capacity for the fastest possible charging and compatibility with both the iPhone and iPad.
