The Just Mobile Highway from Just Mobile (http://www.just-mobile.com) is an US$34.95 in-car charger for the iPhone, iPad and other USB-powered devices. It can juice up your iDevice and look good while doing it.
If you want a svelte charger that disappears into the background, this isn't for you. However, if you'd a sexy charger, you're in luck. The Highway plugs into your car's cigarette lighter socket, sticking out in all its glory and flashing its diamond-tread aluminum design -- which includes a head with a power light. Unfortunately, this light doesn’t change colors to indicate charging status.
The Highway's USB port delivers a 2.1-Amp output to charge your gadgets. It can handle 2.1-Amp full speed iPad charging, 1-Amp iPhone charging, and 0.5-Amp iPod charging; the charger automatically adjusts to whatever device is connected.
One very nice touch: it has a built-in fuse to protect your devices from power surges. What's more, the Just Mobile is supplied with an Apple-certified coiled charging cable.
If you need a charging device with more functions (audio output, FM transmitting, etc.), you'll need to keep looking. However, if you're in the market for a stylish car charger that screams "Look at me," you'll want to drive this Highway.
