Won'ts with iPhone4 but not with most bumpers – Mini Car Charger for iPhone 4/3G/3GS - Black Reviews

posted by Maltopia on 06/15/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Charges iPhone4 which is great. It also has a locking mechanism to prevent you pulling the plug off by accident.
Cons:
The plastic around the phone end is humungous! You would have to drastically cut the plastic on most bumper cases to get it to fit.
I have to slide mine off to plug this in which doesn't do my screen protector film any favours - constantly taking the bumper case on and off means I am pushing against the edges of the film.
Other:
The locking mechanism on the plug may be a con for some as you could damage the cable/port if you pull your phone and the charger won't disengage. Shouldn't really be a problem due to the long coils.
Bottomline:
If you have a bumper case, I would only use this as a spare charger if you can't wait to get home or the office to charge with a cable that accommodates your bumper case. I wouldn't recommend it for daily charging.
I keep mine as an emergency spare in the glove box of my car as it is too cumbersome to slide the bumper on and off again.
