• One USB Adapter for Charging Android Phone Anywhere

    Answers Given

    Answers Favorited

  • I want exactly ONE portable USB cable (USB/microUSB) to charge my phone in any of the following situations:

    • 120V wall outlet
    • 12V car (cigarette lighter)
    • USB port on computer/laptop/whatever

    Of course the 3ft USB/microUSB + wall wart that came with my phone meets all the criteria above (assuming 12V adapter in car), but it's hardly portable. I'm looking for something to carry on my person for charging in any situation where a USB port is available. I've found some interesting products, but none meet all my criteria:

    While a product that includes a well-designed adapter for wall outlet and/or cigarette lighter would be a benefit, it's not a requirement.

    Please help, CoolToolers, you're my only hope.

How about a retractable cable? I've carried one of these around in my pocket for several months now: http://www.amazon.com/Micro-USB-Retractable-Cable-BlackBerry/dp/B007Z419BI/

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
