So you’re looking for a phone charger for your car but not sure what one to get. If you have two phones, or have times when two people need to charge their phones, a dual USB charger is a must. Lets take a look and see how the MPOW 3.4A Dual USB Car Charger fairs.


The MPOW Car Charger had 2 USB Ports to charge your devices. One USB port provides 2.4V and the other provides 1V. Both ports are marked so you know which port is which. The Charger is also compact in size so it doesn’t protrude very much from the cigarette outlet or aux outlet, depending on which one you plug it into. This is great for the outlets that are in the back that kids could kick, or ones that tend to block cup holders.

The MPOW Car Charger accepts both 12 and 24 DC Voltage and will output 5V DC at a total of 3.4A.

While in use in my vehicle I used the 1A outlet to power my Wilson Sleek 4G signal booster and the 2.4V to charge my Samsung Galaxy S5. The MPOW 3.4A Dual USB Car Charger provides enough power to run both without any power issues.  The 1A USB Plug will easily charge your Cell Phones, while the 2.4A outlet will provide all the power you need for your tablets whether they are an Android, Apple, Windows, or BlackBerry  Tablet.

As you can see from the pictures, the car charger fits snug into the cigarette lighter in our company vehicle.

MPOW has the electronic in their Car Charger set of if it detects and excess voltage through it to protect both your device your charging and the Car Charger itself. The Charger is made from high quality Aluminium to keep from causing any interference with your wireless devices.

With this charger you can power and charge any of your devices that use a USB cable for charging. The MPOW will even charge your high power devices while you are still using them.

Overall, for those of you looking for a new Dual USB Charger for your car, the MPOW 3.4A Dual USB Car Charger is definitely worth looking into. Available at Amazon.com with a price of only $8.99 plush shipping you will be hard pressed to find something that is this good for the price.

    Hi. whats the actual dimensions of the Mpow. On Amazon it says 8.1 x 6.1 x 3cm. Which doesn’t make sense.

    In my VW the cup holder is very close to the ciggy lighter, best if i know whats the diameter and height of this.

  • Roro,
    Sorry for the delay in replying. I don’t have the charger on me anymore as I have donated it to a co-worker. The part of the charger that sticks out from the Ciggy lighter is very small and I would be more worried about the USB cable blocking space than the charger. Sorry if this doesn’t help you.
